I did an “Opposing Views” piece yesterday, with questions from the Facebook page of the site, “Opposing Views” of course, and it was kind of lame. I started off kind of sassy and okay, but it kind of sucked there towards the end. So let’s try it again. I mentioned in the piece yesterday that I had a few more questions left, but didn’t feel like messing with them anymore. Well, here are the rest of the questions and even though I still don’t feel all that inspired at the moment, I do have about thirty free minutes before I have to head out to work and I figure I can do this or else go watch “The View”. I ain’t watching no View. So let’s get political and do this, shall we? Of course we shall. And away we go…

Do you think Obama’s critics dislike him because they disagree with him on policy or because of racism?

I think for some of his critics, it is all about race. Sad, but true. But the majority of Anti-Obama folks are, I think, because of the bad policies he enacted as President. Plus Obama did not come across as a sincere or honest person in my opinion. He’s a good talker, but what he said and what he did were often far apart and people noticed. Not everyone of course, but some of us did. Obama supporters will always pull out the race card when someone speaks ill of Obama, for whatever reason, but most of the criticism was and is deserved and earned.

The number of illegal immigrants crossing the border just hit a 45-year low. Do you think Trump and his team deserve credit for cracking down on illegal immigration?

If they don’t deserve the credit, then who does?

Yes or no: Will Obama go down in history as a great president?

No. His signature piece of legislature, Obama Care has been a major disaster. His policies hurt America again and again and he was viewed across the world as a weak and failed leader, offering giving ultimatums, but rarely following through. And what about the hypocrisy and blatant lies? I think his legacy will be that he made Jimmy Carter look like a good President by comparison. Obama was not a good President.

Yes or no: Is Trump the worst president in American history?

Trump hasn’t even been President for a year yet and has a long ways to go before we can call him the “best” or “worst”. So far, he’s been doing a good job in my opinion and the country has been showing signs of a stronger economy with illegal immigration down and the job market improving. So worst? Not by a long shot if things continue as they have been. Best? Only time will tell, but so far, so long as he stays away from Twitter, he’s on the right track.

President Trump just fulfilled another campaign promise by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Do you support his decision?

I do and so do George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. They all promised to do so and Trump actually did it. It’s the right call and I’m glad to see Trump follow through where his predecessors talked the talk and promised it, but didn’t follow through. Good move by the President, who is actually trying to keep his campaign promises. A President who does that? Amazing!

A Christian-owned Colorado bakery is under fire for refusing to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. Now, their case is being decided in the Supreme Court. What do you think: Do businesses have the right to refuse service to people they disagree with?

They should have the right to refuse service to anyone. It’s the benefit of having a privately owned business. And they didn’t refuse to make a Wedding cake. They refused to make a custom cake and tried to refer the same-sex couple to someone who would be more comfortable with doing so. It was a deliberate attempt, in my opinion, by that couple to get these folks and try to cash in. Why would anyone want someone who doesn’t want to make a cake for their wedding to be the ones to make a cake for their wedding? That doesn’t make sense to me and I would think they would take their business elsewhere to someone who supports their marriage. I’m gay and if I get married, I want my wedding cake and everything else to be handled by people who support me and my future husband and will give us their best. I wouldn’t go to someone who doesn’t want to take my business and money. That part just rubs me wrong and makes me think this whole thing was intentional to get at the bakery and intentionally drive them out of business. I support the bakery and their rights to refuse a customer on this one.

Use ONE WORD to describe the Obamas!

Sham!

Would you like to see Obama get his own monument in D.C.?

Save the monuments for those who deserve them. Obama does not.

And there you go. This one is better than the one yesterday. I’m sure I still managed to get a few of my liberal friends PO’ed, but that’s okay. I still love you and you are still my Peeps. Comments, thoughts and all feedback is welcome. I’m gone now. Take it easy and be safe.

Ubuntu!
