Hello people,

   I remember a couple of years ago I got into an argument with some one abour President Obama.The argument was over whether or not Obama was good or bad. He was sort of right. I say sort of because I am not a Christian.
 America is heavily influenced by Jewish & Christian religions. Christians are very good at dichotomizing.Christians tend to see things as either this or that. They 
use such phrases as "two paths you can go by",you are "either with us or against us","legal or illegal", "sinner or saint","devil or angel","for or against","right or worng", "love it or leave it",(whatever happened to change it),"good and bad".That is why sometimes Buddhists,Hindus,atheists and agnostics who do not perceive the 
world in such black and white terms might be better at coflict resolution.I see things as all grey.The Chinese Yin-Yang philosophy believes where there is good and 
bad,within the good there is some bad and within the bad there is some good.Further good and bad are relative terms.What seems good for one person might be considered 
bad by another,and vice cera.Like Mick Jagger & the Rolling Stones said it best in their 1968 song "Sympathy For The Devil" -"Just as every cop is a criminal,and all 
the sinners saints,as heads is tails"
  Anyway back to Obama.I don't see him as all good or as all bad.Like anybody else he has good and bad.But lately he has done several things I don't like.Every 28 hours a black man is killed by a white cop in the USA.You'd think with a half black president and a black attorney general that something would be done.I didn't like George H.W. Bush.But when a jury in California aquitted four (4) cops of beating Rodney King,Bush said the verdict was dispicable and he brought federal charges against those cops.
   Now in Fergusson,Missouri a prosecutor refuses to charge a cop (Mr.Wilson) in the death of 18 year old Michael Brown.Obama addresses crowds of people telling them 
he supports the prosecutors decision not to charge the officer.
  In Staten Island,New York caught on video is Eric Garner who is strangled to death by the NYPD after hollering "I can't breath". People, you go take a video of me while I strangle someone to death while they holler "I can't breath". I could guarantee you as sure as the sun is going to come up tomorrow,I would be going to jail for a long time. If that ain't murder I dunno what is.
But Obama and Eric Holder do nothing about this.
  Now in Baltimore.People were potesting peacefully for a week because they were demanding answers about the murder by the police of a 25 year old black man.No public official or even the press paid much attention to the peaceful protests.Then suddenly the protesters start rioting.Suddenly they get the attention of the press and President Obama. He condemns the rioters but never addresses the reason as to why the protesters were protesting to begin with.It seems to me Obama is an Uncle Tom.He is only exposing the white side of his complexion while he panders to redneks and racists.
   I used to be a Democrat.I would never be a Republican because of their obsssesion with guns and the Bible.Now I am an independent and look more at the individual's 
character not his or her party affiliation.
   I haven't been on US soil in almost six (6) years. If I go back there a cop might shoot me to death for no reason at all and nothing will happen to him.
