Barack Obama and Islam

Obama and the new beginning.



Just like in the sixties, you need to take mind altering substances to understand this completely.

Poor Obama, a time traveller who has missed his calling during the hippie era.

Whatever happened to the sixties?
Peace Bro.

I enjoyed the video...flashbacks...(not quite - I was only 10 when the 60's ended)

I thought I'd respond to your comment on greed here to make sure you got it.

I don't think that working hard and reaping the rewards is greed. I am not against wealth whatsoever.

What I am against is unrestrained greed which has been heavily promoted since at least the 80's. The greed that makes people feel like they HAVE to have designer this or that - or they can't show their face - so they will cheat or steal to get it. The greed that makes us grab for stuff we don't need and fear letting it go. The greed that puts us deeply in debt to buy stuff that's broken and worn out before it's paid for.

Greed that makes us do irrational things to satisfy that craving - that generally doesn't satisfy it anyway - needs to be addressed.

Nothing cures the greed impulse like a good ole economic recession...
