Barack Obama to join Angela Merkel in Germany to help launch worldwide program to inspire young people.

Courtesy of CNN: 

Former President Barack Obama will sit side-by-side with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Thursday in the first event of what will eventually become his worldwide program to inspire young people to create change. 

Obama will join Merkel at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to highlight his foundation's new global effort to inspire and support young people active in narrowing inequality, combating climate change, working on public health, empowering women and girls and boosting young entrepreneurs. 

"He and Mrs. Obama have been pretty clear that the foundation will have a global reach. They want to be really involved in programing throughout the world," an Obama Foundation official said.

Just a reminder that while Trump is overseas right now embarrassing our country, that former President Obama is still working to make the world a better place and to inspire future generations. 

I swear that every day Trump is in office my admiration and respect for President Obama just grows that much more.

The man was an amazing President, and history is going to be very kind to him indeed.

      “These statues are not just stone and metal,” Landrieu said on Friday. “They’re not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy — ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, ignoring the terror that it actually stood for.”

      “President Donald Trump has to do what’s in the best interest of his administration. And they’ve cut people loose before, I don’t know why, so time will tell, but I know that he values loyalty.”“They’re saying certain words and phrases I should have put quotation marks around. OK, alright, fine. Maybe from a formatting standpoint the thesis isn’t perfect, but the content is there.”

    Hey, Anony-Mouse; stop posting links and just say what YOU have to say.

    Posting links is lazy.

    1. At the very least, give a summary or put a few lines in quotes so we get an idea of what the link is about.

      I ignore posts that are nothing but a link and no comment. I consider it spam and couldn't be bothered reading an anonymous link.

    "It seems difficult to imagine how this administration could figure out how to design and pass a tax cut that could pay for itself when Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush failed to come anywhere close to doing so. If there is a group of economic minds with the special genius to accomplish this historically unprecedented feat, it is probably not the fiscal minds who just made a $2 trillion basic arithmetic error."


    1. Oh, it's easy.

      They're siphoning money from the social safety net to pay for the tax cuts for the wealthy and to pour even more money into an obscenely bloated military budget.

      Social Security Disability, SNAP and Medicaid will all be cut, plus more.

      I hope the very voters that put Trump in office are the first to get all of their "subsidies" cut. Will serve them right for voting against their own best interests and the best interest of the nation.

      May Trump die soon w/his soul going to Hell. He's not pro America or Americans by any stretch of the imagination. He detests the poor and minorities - factual and proven on a daily basis!

    "The erosion of civil society feels very real. And not just in Russia, which traditionally is labeled by Americans as the “unfree world.” This erosion is no less real in the so-called “free world” too, citizens of which have been so positive for so long about the fact that they are free, they’ve forgotten what it looks like to stand up for their rights.
