  1. Chevdove, my comments stand. You seem to have an inability to stay on point. You are obsessed with Europe and how it relates to the Obama administration. If you are this angry with Obama, you are free to join Diamond and Silk.
  2. Obama is not to blame for the increasing wealth gap. The wealth gap began to narrow in his early years. It soon resumed widening, not because of Obama. But due to a low inheritance tax. And that particular levy continues to play a major factor in separating in wealth accumulation by Whites. The ACA is a bonafide accomplishment of the Obama administration. Oh, Europe did it? And you think this is nothing but a trick? Many would call it an attempt to bring about Universal Healthcare.
  3. Yes, that is true. I do not know how many Blacks are languishing behind bars due to being nabbed for possession and sale of weed. But it did irk me that the folks who got the permissions and licenses to sell marijuana are White. There are several Black owned weed dispensaries now. https://www.theroot.com/go-green-but-buy-black-10-black-owned-cannabis-compani-1834189450
  4. I despise trolls as well.
  5. Pioneer, I never thought about it that way. But it sure makes sense.
  6. Kareem, Troy asked if I remembered Willis Reed and Walt Frazier. I also remember the Knicks in the '90's. In 1994, they were up 3-2 over the Rockets in the Finals, traveled to Houston for the last two games and promptly blew those contests.
  7. Chevdove, you can believe as you wish. The ACA offered millions health insurance when they had none or had insufficient coverage. Many others have said the same. If one does not want to buy health insurance that is on them. Because anyone can opt out. Personally, I don't believe half the folks who claimed they suffered financially due to the ACA. Such ones tend to lie or exaggerate, absent any definitive proof. Millions of folks in this country have been bankrupted because they lacked health insurance or the ability to pay high medical bills. If Black people decide to forego health insurance, don’t blame me. The onus is on them. Do they think they’re really going to receive a great health insurance deal from Republicans? The bottom line is that Obama’s ACA gave health insurance to millions who never had it. If no one wanted to pay a fine, then they need to obtain insurance through other means, ya know, like a full time job? I am aware that medical costs are ridiculous. So are prices for homes. When I had no health insurance, I just hoped I would not get sick. But if you have children, that is a difficult proposition. Depending on what state and what health provider one goes to, there may be cheaper alternatives. But today, for those who do not have health coverage, they face an uncertain fate. Would you drive your own car without insurance? Do you have home owner’s insurance? Renter’s insurance? If you own a company, do you obtain insurance? What happens if you there’s an incident and you’re held liable? Or you can take a chance by not buying insurance.
  8. I do not believe it is a trick. Israel desperately wants new friends. This is not an alliance. It's merely an establishment of full diplomatic relations. I do not trust Netanyahu as far as I can toss a 100 pound sack of potatoes.
  9. Troy, those were glorious days for the Knicks! Yes, we lionized Reed and Frazier. … “we have 25 seconds to the championship. ……. Red Holzman has to hold back some of his players….. ....And now the crowd starts a combination of “It’s all over now” and “We’re Number One!” (Marv Albert) It’s all on this wonderful album which I played so much it became hopelessly scratched. I love the Knicks. New York Rangers, too. Are you kidding? Don't you remember that firestorm following Janet Jackson's breast stunt at the 2004 Super Bowl? I thought the reaction was completely overblown.
  10. I’ve debated some strident, but intelligent, racists on a couple of news forums. This was in 2002 when I was debating the legitimacy of the coming Iraq War. It took a while, but eventually I made quite a few friends on there. It was not all about fighting and trying to get the best of each other. Even these Conservatives back then acknowledged facts from legitimate sources. In fact, it was a requirement on that forum to provide support for your assertions. Now, not all liked my responses. But no one ever claimed I made stuff up. Most Black reporters get fired if we are caught faking news. So, I learned to do my work.
  11. I get you, my brother. If it's a problem, I will post such stuff elsewhere.
  12. Troy, I wrote this a couple of years qago and posted iit n a Black forum on FB. I write my own material. A lot of people enjoy my work so they copy it. Are you the only person who did not realize they are a joke? I should tell you that I am a retired Senior News Editor with 26 years in the news industry. I also taught Writing and Literature in business colleges for five years. Every once in a while, I come up with a funny.
