Let’s not cut down the forests in which they live…

I’m so tired of people treating other people like shit. Especially over something like skin pigmentation. If you ignore this you are a part of the problem. Don’t let people do shit things and get away with it.

More and more are happening and it’s really scary

Obama has been terrible for the middle class.▼ Reshared Post From Sharon Machlis ▼Striking data visualization of how the American middle class has been faring in the past couple of decades (hint: The 21st century has not been kind so far). From the NY Times Upshot http://nyti.ms/1wAVQQW

Ummm… Obama is not a king.  He can’t pass legislation on his own: American system of government 101.  The actual history has a lot to do with this:
Author Robert Draper in ”Do Not Ask What Good We Do: Inside the U.S. House of Representatives" reported on a 4-hour closed-door meeting of prominent Republicans during Obama’s 2012 inauguration. 
“The senior GOP members plotted to bring Congress to a standstill regardless how much it would hurt the American Economy by pledging to obstruct and block President Obama on all legislation.
    These Republican members of Congress were not simply airing their complaints regarding the other party’s political platform for four long hours.  No, these Republican Congressional Policymakers, who were elected to do ‘the People’s work’ were literally plotting to sabotage, undermine and destroy the U.S. Economy.”
