I've known Shakira for years now, and i can honestly say he gets attacked on this forum a lot and mostly just because the most forum users are from the younger generations. He is a fucking awesome man, and anyone who refuses to see his steadying qualities should think if this whole battle of minds is going to a rail where we should not take it.

He said it above very well, he disliked Obamas policies (and i didn't). Like a true officer, he didn't speak against his commander in chief. Army is different for sure, but disagreeing and being nasty and cruel are not the same thing with a different perspective.

I find this funny, but if i had to end up on a deserted island with anyone from here, the politics posters, Shakira, sakhir would be on my list of people every time.
Thanks, Anna. Love you too - even though you are screwed up politically

I'd be happy to see some of the posts where Sak admonishes someone for speaking ill of former President Obama as well. To me, it seems he is very sensitive to someone criticising the current president, yet the former is fair game. Please feel free to prove me wrong, Le Mans is over I've got all day.

Hey, i back up my views with my own money, with my time.

Disagreeing on politics should never be a reason not to find understanding people. I get here shit from the right, you from the left, but we both know we are on each others friend lists for a good reason. Give me an M. Give you a track, gimme Wyoming. (i totally tried doing this on the cheerleader voice!)

Again, the first encounter I had with Shakira (he and i gave up on me and my dyslexia years ago, i can't spell his handle. He lets me call him a hot latina blonde because I'm hopeless) was me dissing him completely for not taking the roof i chose. His answer was then basically:

"you been married for 40 years? No? Well, i have, things works when you compromise and hey try this at home for free!"

Yeah. I mean, that's actually politics

I can give you something better than a post on Obama. He and i are from the opposite sides for sure, but every time anyone has questioned me as something else but as a bot, in here in politics/ religion he has stepped up.

Now, if you want to know the guy, read his posts in the what's up thread. Do note then he was the lone wolf, and never, ever did he attack others. Not Obama, not Clinton, not the republicans, and when others disagreed, the man never got personal towards the poster.

You were young and your heart was an open book. You used to say, live and live, you know you did

Part of me wants to say

You seem to want to be the hall monitor, then do it for everyone.
I was calling you out since you don't follow your own protocol.

For what it's worth, I don't think you are joking, face it you hate him. I get the fact that he does not fit the political mold as President, but he was elected by the American people and we should give him that respect. That's it.

You only addressed things said about the current president. Apparently, if it's a former president, you could care less.

You don't read very well.

You posted: I don't seem to recall you admonishing those that have called Obama names.

I responded: Obama is no longer the President. I guess it is my military background - would never call my Commander-In-Chief names, no matter what I thought of him.

How is that only addressing the current President?

This conversation got me to wonder what the political forum was like before I became interested in it--basically during last years election. If you look back there are a few interesting things: there seems to be a diverse line of topics and not just one Trump thread after another.

There also seems to be less action and a gap around 2013. I didn't read into the threads just glanced at the topics which seem to have a significant change in tone during the current Trump era.

Now you are making excuses. First, he isn't the president anymore so stop bringing him up.

Second, I did not make the keep it civil or be quiet comment, You did.

I probably should have read your response before I replied, but maybe they need to hear the don't bring up Obama since they all seem to tell us that!

Hmm, I wonder how that Hillary investigation is coming along?
