Obama Won, and I Didn't Even Vote

On Tynan

I already know that this post is going to get a lot of negative comments like the religion one. And that's because this "every vote counts" dogma that everyone loves so much shares a lot with religion. It's a belief that's held true without a single bit of compelling evidence, and it's a strong belief.

But before I get into that, let's talk about some other things.

First, Obama won and I'm happy about that. I don't think that he's a superhero like a lot of people do. When I look at his positions I disagree with most of them. I disagree with most of McCain's positions as well.

My take on the ‘Muslim’ ban

On The Naughty Ostrich

After two days of watching the drama of Trump’s Muslim refugee ban unfold I have decided to throw my two cents in.

Let’s get one thing clear and out of the way before I bombard you with facts. As sitting president of the United States of America, Trump can do whatever the hell he wants to do to America and on American soil. In a ‘democracy’ the citizens can choose to accept or reject their president’s decisions. Or something to that effect.

Back to the ban. I understand why Trump would implement a ban, he is looking out for his people; it wasn’t too long ago when Isis announced they will embed ‘jihadists’ in refugees migrating from their countries to the rest of the world. The world has seen young men disguised as refugees ride the refugee tsunami in Germany right after Angela Merkel opened the country up to them. Only to have these young men who conveniently happen to be between the ages of 18 and 35 and carry no papers, throw dirt at her and her hospitality in the form of violence and terrorist acts in the name of Islam. Whether the ban, which is supposed to be temporary, works or not that will remain to be seen. A revelation that might shock some people is this; it was Obama who started this temporary ban BUT it was against FOUR countries, Trump simply added three more to the list. Obama’s ban was for SIX MONTHS. So the ninety days Trump has imposed don’t seem so bad right now. Actually Obama's ban wasn't really a ban at all. Obama's decision required people who had been to certain 'countries of concern' to get a visa to enter the United States rather than use their visa-waiver privilege. he tightened up the requirements a specific set of travelers had to meet.

The problem with the ban is this; it IS a Muslim ban. Trump announced it as such. Don’t believe me? Let Rudy tell you:
