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.

Are you ready to get political? It’s that time of the week and I’m feeling sassy. I have the music on YouTube cranked up and the site, Opposing Views, has a ton of great questions waiting. So with all of that being said, let’s just jump right into it and do this, shall we? This are just my opinions, but of course, I’m right. Questions, comments and all feedback is welcome and appreciated. Don’t like what I said or else agree 100%? Let me know what you think. And now, let’s present a few “Opposing Views”.

Do you Michelle Obama would beat Trump if she ran for president in 2020?

What exactly qualifies Michelle to run for President? Her manly physique and prominent Adam’s apple? She’s never held a position of leadership of any kind and isn’t qualified to be President or even be allowed in the White House for that matter except for her marriage to Barack. The only job she’s ever held of any importance was as an Attorney and her license to practice law has been revoked for reasons that have yet to be revealed. So much for transparency, right? So yeah, a large number of liberal minded idiots would vote for her and she would definitely win California and Washington DC. But actually win the election and the Presidency? I would hope that America isn’t that stupid.

Do you think America is more respected with Trump as president than Obama?

I think so. Before, America was a joke with Obama as the President. There were no consequences for actions and disrespect was rewarded with money and political agreements. Now, we may not be as “liked” as we once were, but we are definitely more respected and people are more apt to mind their P’s & Q’s when dealing with the U.S. than they did before.

Do you hope Mike Pence runs for president after Trump’s time in office ends?

Honestly, I don’t know if I’d like to see Pence as President or not. There are many things about him that I still don’t agree with and have my doubts about, but I would have to look and see what the other options would be before giving him my support. He’s far better than say Hillary or Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren or any of the top Democratic leaders currently in power though.

‘Sheriff Joe’ Arpaio just announced that he’s ‘seriously, seriously,’ considering running for Senate. Would he get your vote?

Nope and that’s not because I don’t like Sheriff Joe because I do (for the most part), but I don’t live in Arizona where he resides and would be running from. And also, he’s in his 80’s and too old for a new job and role in such an important position. I think he should retire from public service and enjoy his life, not waste his time with politics and the B.S. that is our government these days.

The White House says Democrats are only trying to impeach Trump because they’re bitter about how badly he beat Hillary Clinton. Do you agree with that?

That’s part of it to be sure. Plus, Trump is everything that the liberal minded politicians hate in that he’s proof that capitalism works. He’s not politically correct and regularly calls them out on their hypocrisy and he’s the anti-Christ to every argument and agenda that the liberal left seems to have. He’s keeping his promises and keeps doesn’t play the political games that the powers-that-be are so used to. The more successful Trump is as President, the more it weakens and destroys the Democratic party and they don’t like it.

Do you think the Clintons are a disgrace to our country?

I think they’re a disgrace to humanity in general and truly vile and evil to the core. A disgrace to our country doesn’t even begin to describe it.

The President’s children are ALWAYS off limits. Agree or disagree?

So long as they are minors and not politically active, they are all and should always be off limits to the press and to political opponents. However, once they become adults, and IF they decide to act as representatives for their parents on the political scene, then all bets are off. Be a child and be left alone. Stay out of politics and be left alone. Be active in the political scene, you’re just another victim and anything goes.

President Trump says it’s absurd that he’s being investigated and Hillary Clinton isn’t. Does he make a good point?

No one can come up with any actual law that Trump may have broken. Hillary has been proven to have violated laws, but the FBI only calls it “reckless” and there are so many issues and proven lies and issues in the previous investigations that it’s not even funny any more. If Trump has broken the law and it can be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, then impeach him and be done with it. Otherwise, shut the hell up. And Hillary should be charged and prosecuted if proven she has broken any laws. So do that too.

And I’m going to quit right here. I have more questions to use, but I’m getting bored with this. I think I need a nap. So that’s all for now. Thanks for reading. Give me some feedback. And have a great one. I’ll see you later…

Are you ready to get a little political? “Opposing Views” is a left-leaning site out of California that has some crazy opinions (in my opinion), but generally some awesome questions. And every once in a while, I like to poke the bear a bit and shake up some of my snowflake friends. I can’t help it… it’s what I do. And now, let’s do it…

1. The Trump Administration is looking to put a serious dent into Affirmative Action. Do you think Affirmative Action is racist?

A program that forces people to hire others strictly because of the color of their skin rather than their qualifications. Sounds racist to me.

2. Donald Trump says the infamous Access Hollywood tape is fake. Do you believe him?

I think Donald should shut up about this and concern himself more with being the President. He said what he said. It came out in public and everyone lost their minds. And now, many of the folks who were shouting the loudest are getting caught by their hypocrisy. Whatever. Let’s move on.

3. Would you support a bill to protect Confederate monuments nationwide?

These monuments are part of our history and culture, whether the haters want to admit it or not. They weren’t offended until they were told to be offended by the media. Get the hell over it. And these monuments, as well as ALL of our historical monuments, deserve the same equal protection under the law.

4. A Kentucky bill would let public school teachers use the Bible for literature and poetry lessons. Do you support the policy?

It’s a slippery slope so far as keeping the line between religion and government apart and probably not the best of ideas. I don’t necessarily disagree because the Bible is a fascinating book, but I think personally that other book selections might be better for these particular topics of discussion.

5. Morning Joe says Donald Trump is a ‘mouth breather.’ Whose side are you on: Trump’s or Morning Joe’s?

“Morning Joe” is an idiot. He and Mika were big Trump fans until Donald hurt their feelings and called them out for some hypocritical stupidity and then they went total “hater” on Trump. Take those idiots off the air. They’re nearly as annoying as The View these days and not nearly as entertaining.

6. Which leader acts more like a president should: Donald Trump or Bill Clinton?

Well, Trump hasn’t screwed any interns in the Oval Office yet or been impeached for lying under oath during a court case and Bill was so I’ll side with President Trump on this one.

7. Do you miss seeing Obama and Biden in the White House?

Not at all…

8. Joe Biden says his biggest regret is that Trump is president instead of him. Do you feel the same way?

Biden had the option to run for President, but instead decided to stay out of it and let Hillary be the candidate. He didn’t run and she did and lost to Trump. That’s on him and was his decision. No need to whine or complain about it now. And do I regret that we have President Trump instead of a President Biden? Nope, not at all…

And that’s all for now. I think it’s time for bed (nearly 7:00am). Thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts and questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take it easy friends and have a great one.
