George Obama In '2016: Obama's America': President's Brother Appears In Conservative Documentary (VIDEO)

“Come, now. Surely you understand it's ridiculous that you're claiming "Seven children? How many moms? We do need someone that grew up in our country and understands what America is about." is actually saying "Pres. Obama is responsible for taking care of his siblings".

No amount of reading comprehension can make one of those quotes represent the other.

Besides, if that's the frame of reference, then the apple fell as far from the tree as it can possibly get. Obama senior had multiple wives and seven kids who he saw rarely. Obama junior has had one wife and two children he's extremely involved with.”

“You do realize it's hard to understand what you're trying to say when you fill your posts with propaganda chaff, right?

Lots of people whose families came from colonial regimes hated... well, England, we'll just simplify and say England. Two hundred years ago, a lot of people in America would've said they hated all things colonial. Because generally people who are colonists who want to be independent don't like being colonies.

As for the race thing - ugh. Look, if you come from a background so homogenized that you've never felt the conflict of one side of your heritage against another, then bully for you. Others among us are more complicated. This is not a bad thing.”

“England tried to restrict us in every possible way - embargoes, taxes, rules for exports. These repressions were extreme, and Americans had had enough. Our land needs to study history and then see the end of all decisions.”

“None of that matters. The president still doesn't like or trust white people. It won't change simply because you attempt to deflect. As far as others' lives being complicated, that's a cop-out. There is no reason in 2012, to cry racism......not by blacks, not by hispanics.......but it's done all the time. You know it and I know it. Again, deflection doesn't work.”

“I'm glad you brought up reading comprehension: if Goodtimes is talking about Barack Obama in the third sentence, then what do the first two have to do with anything? A child is not responsible for his parents, and yet Goodtimes seems to imply that a man who has many siblings from different mothers is somehow not American enough to serve as president. Which is hilarious, when you consider the divorce rate in this country.

Now we have covered reading comprehension, let's move onto proper usage of capitalization. Your turn!”

JGfromMS on Jul 10, 2012 at 23:01:14

“First of all, capitalization was all correct except for the first word which was a typo from the post, not me. Secondly...your comprehension is still off base. The poster was saying that the Sr. Obama had many women and many children and was being irresponsible and not taking care of his children as was proved by Pres. Obama and his mom having to live with his maternal grandparents. He wasn't inferring that the Prez was responsible for his parents...just that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Not that I believe Pres. Obama is responsible for taking care of his siblings but that was what the poster was referring to. Please read for content before you "go off" on others.”

“can you not read or do you have a comprehension problem?? Goodtimes said 7 children and how many moms? He didn't ask how many moms Barack Obama had...he asked how many mothers for those 7 children? I am sure the point was that the Senior Obama was taking care of personal business while spreading his seed.”

“By "this dude" you mean the guy who's quietly laughing at the suggestion that anyone would have to support him as an adult, calmly assuring the interviewer that he's quite content with his relationship with his brother, and then diving into an economic comparison of post-colonialism? That's your "joke"?”

“It is blisteringly ignorant to think that everyone in the world wants to live in the United States. Why on earth would you leave your family, friends and culture if you're happy in your birth country? George Obama seems pretty happy, and he also seems pretty happy with America's role in the world and his brother's guidance in general.”

“Watch the video, for heaven's sake. If it surfaced in 2008, all it would show is that the Obama kids have proven themselves very intelligent and self-sufficient. Hardly a slam against the family.”

“.......except, he DID say that your "president" hated all things colonial. Barack, himself, said in one of his toilet paper books that he identified with his father's race and that he grew less and less trusting of his MOTHER'S race. The man DOES NOT LIKE WHITE PEOPLE. His wife likes them even less.”

“George Obama's not vulnerable and doesn't appear to think of himself as impoverished. Watch the video - he's clearly a thoughtful guy who's slightly amused when D'Souza implies that Barack should be supporting him. As he says, he's an adult and Barack Obama's got a family of actual children to support.

Can you imagine how condescending it would be, if someone came round to you at your mechanic shop and started asking you why your much older lawyer half-brother isn't sending you money?”

“George Obama comes across as a thoughtful, responsible guy. I love that D'Souza is clearly not expecting George to make the distinction that Barack is really only responsible for his kids - and it must be bizarre for George, to have to explain that there's no reason to expect aid from his brother given that he's "over age".

I can't see how it's going to help US conservatives to show that Obama's younger brother is a calm, reasoned individual with no resentment towards his half-brother.”

frptkosak on Jul 10, 2012 at 20:18:03

“Funny isnt it. The conservative mantra is people should be responsible for themselves and not expect help from others. But, when it comes to obama the hand wringing that Obama is not supporting his half-brother who follows the conservative mantra of being responsible for himself.”

“It's not a huge leap to make. A man in a car with a gun somehow ends up in an altercation with a kid holding Skittles. You're right that we don't know what happened, but... C'mon. He followed the kid. The kid didn't go looking for him.”

GOATLEY3 on Mar 9, 2012 at 00:42:47

“You make a good point. But how far did he follow him? How long after the 911 call did the incident occur? If he did follow him for a considerable time the young man may have become irate or angry and initiated the confrontation. Even if the guy shot the young man in cold blood, the only corroborating witness is dead. Therefor, if he keeps his story straight he'll walk.”

“Sure, the start of the call is fine. He reports something he considers suspicious. Less helpful is the part where the police tell him to STOP FOLLOWING the kid, and Zimmerman ignores that instruction.

He also has been reported as saying "They always get away" on the 911 recording. "They"?!”

“I would guess that a gunshot corpse is "evidence of a crime". It doesn't help that he called the police, was told not to follow the kid and did anyway.

It's hard to think of any circumstance where this could be framed as self-defense. Martin didn't pursue Zimmerman, it was the other way around. I don't think you get to stalk and then confront another person until they finally decide that you mean them ill, then shoot them when they object to your creepy behaviour.”

“Actually calling the police does help. It shows the intent of Zimmerman was to report what he thought was a suspicious person.”

“GREAT! Okay, new proposal:

How about we strip tax-exempt status and all federal subsidies from religious institutions, and then funnel the savings/revenue towards a Secular Institution for Lady Business?

That way no religious institutions have to pay for contraception or reproductive services, but it reflects the fact that the religious institution has chosen to deny care to 50% of its members?”

So. Would you be happy with that? You give up tax-exempt status and the various federal breaks your church gets, and we'll redirect the money to cover a federal women's health initiative. Deal?”

“Transvaginal ultrasounds take pictures of your uterus and ovaries, whether there's something in there or not. If the doctor thinks there's something unusual going on with your plumbing, she'll use a transvaginal ultrasound to try and see what it is. Some of us get pictures of fetuses, some of us get pictures of cysts. Same tool.

(Take a look back at the post and ask yourself what "context" you used to infer the ultrasound was related to a fetus. Reading comprehension is great, and you should look into it.)”
