Comments about 2016

Perusing the movie listings for Brainerd I’ve been mildly curious whether the movie “Obama’s America 2016” was a pro Obama or anti Obama.

Seeing the nearly full page opinion piece in the Brainerd Dispatch I was curious enough to read it. I soon realized the movie was a right wing production when I saw it was based on a book by Dinesh D’Souza, or “Distort the News” as he’s otherwise known.

After reading the lengthy opinion piece I was disappointed. The entire piece repeatedly told me Obama was evil.

However, it didn’t tell me why he was evil. Does he cavort with pagans?

Does he dance with wiccans? Bestiality? Pederasty? Is the birth certificate a forgery?

If the Brainerd Dispatch is going to give the better part of a page for a political rant you should set a standard requiring the writer to have something vaguely interesting to say.

When I joined the Army I raised my right hand and took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. I haven’t agreed with everything Obama’s done in office. However, overall I think he’s been far more respectful of the Constitution than the previous resident of the office.
