Over 90,000 Sign Petition To Rename
Street Outside Trump Tower After Obama

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 8/14/2019 11:45:56 AM

The street outside Trump Tower may be renamed “President Barack H. Obama Avenue,” at least if nearly 100,000 people get their way. As of Wednesday, 93,627 people have signed a petition from the left-wing site MoveOn.org to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue in New York City between 56th and 57th Avenue after the 44th president in order to spite President Donald Trump. (Photo) The woman behind the petition told Newsweek that she wants to honor Obama because Osama Bin Laden was killed by American forces during the Obama administration.

Trump will always tower over Obama. Everyone in the Trump Tower can now look down on Obama. This doesn't seem like the wisest thing to do. But then, these clowns probably voted for Obama.

The vindictiveness and childishness of liberals knows no bounds. IIRC, some city in California named a sewer plant after Trump.

Obama Street will always be in Trump's towering shadow. Also, like Obama's "legacy", people will walk all over him if he is a street (fitting as that happened while he was President). Democrat's continue show how vindictive and spiteful they are with gimmicks like this.

I will never believe Obama took out OBL. He offered absolutely no evidence to prove he did. If he had, he would have shouted it from the rooftops, and offered at least photographic proof. Even the SEAL team that was supposed to have been the ones to take him out were mysteriously killed in that bizarre chopper accident to protect the secret. Given the history of Obama's lack of verifiable honesty, I do not think we can trust him to be honest about this. After all, we know how he favored terrorists over American citizens every time the choice came up. See Benghazi as an example.

They go from denial to anger to bargaining and depression and back again. Stuck in a sad loop, nowhere near acceptance. This kind of thing makes them feel better for a minute, then they go back to their sad, Trump-deranged live with their hate building, a near-total abandonment of principles, advocating violence and tearing the country apart. Sad.

Who cares? It's one block of Fifth Avenue. No one would call it "President Barack H. Obama Avenue" anyway. If the small, petty little man pines for a street sign on Fifth Avenue, give him one. "At this point, what difference does it make?"

New Yorkers may be very stupid democrats, but I think remaining a street in NYC after Obummer is heresy, amongst. I live through 8 years of the Clintons and 8 years of the Obamas. I am not sure how I survived those years. Why not rename Intercourse, PA after either of these "men". Seems far mor fitting. Bathhouse Barry could be the state capital.

HBO’s latest fiasco in entertainment, The Righteous Gemstones, premiered on Sunday night. Nudity? Check. Unnecessary profanity? Check. Extremely mind numbing content? Check. So what sets this show apart from the rest of the junk HBO puts out? Not much. The storyline, which is centered around a rich celebrity pastor, Eli Gemstone (John Goodman), and his family—a greedy and very corrupt bunch of people—comes across as a mockery of Christians, despite the showrunner's attempts to claim it's not.

Perhaps when you think of the founding of the United States, you think of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Federalist Papers. Now, the New York Times wants to "reframe" your understanding of the nation's founding. In the Times' view (which it hopes to make the view of millions of Americans), the country was actually founded in 1619, when the first Africans were brought to North America, to Virginia, to be sold as slaves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of that event, and the Times has created something called the 1619 Project. This is what the paper hopes the project will accomplish:
