Obama criticized for lavish library plans, including ‘test kitchen’
Reports first surfaced last fall that the monument to the first black president’s legacy was taking on an activity-center vibe. There would be a museum – but also a basketball court, possibly a room for yoga classes, and a test kitchen to teach visitors “about the full production cycle of nutritious food.”
I can’t even begin to imagine what the hell is Obama going to fill up this behemoth of a library with? Can we really call it a library or should it be labeled an entertainment center? The best part being, it is not going to cost him one thin dime.
To start with, monuments (pyramids) like this were built for and by the Pharaohs’ that ruled the lands to commemorate their accomplishments and their lives. Do I have to go any further??
Possibly the reason Obama is having a kitchen and a basketball court built into his pyramid is because he is at a loss to find anything significant in his accomplishments to fill the voids.
“What brought me up short was a space in the adjoining Forum building labeled ‘test kitchen.’ Presumably that reflects Michelle Obama’s war on junk food. The museum’s champions similarly suggest it could host yoga classes,” he wrote. “President Obama, is that how you want to be remembered? As the healthy-eating and meditation-advocating president?”
He added, “That’s not how I want the story to come down to my grandchildren’s children.”
If the truth was going to be told as it should be with every x-president; in Obama’s case, there would not be too much to brag about.
Monuments should be built by admiring citizens that want to acknowledge the persons accomplishments, not orchestrated by the person themselves.
There are many articles of the pros and cons depicting what Obama did or didn’t do while sitting in The Big Chair. I guess it is a matter of what one wants to believe.
As far as I am concerned, there were too many negatives in the mix to do hand stands over.
One example is the unemployment statistics. THEY say that the reason unemployment went down while Obama was in office, is because there were so many people who were discussed with the system, not able to get a job, they did not register. The beat goes on and on and on!!
It has always amazed me that 100 people could witness the same crime and there will be 100 different accounts of the incident and 100 different descriptions of the criminal. I guess it is called the frailties of human nature.
I would like to quote the old cliché. A person can do 1,000 thing right and no one notices; that same person can do one thing wrong and that will be what the person is most remembered by.
I like to use Pa Pa Paterno as an example. At one time he held a godly status at Penn State. In his career he was viewed by most people as a man among men, a person to be admired for all of his accomplishments and good deeds. That was until, it was disclosed he kept silent about the Sandusky molestation situation. In the end, what will Pa Pa Joe be most remember for??
I personally do not support a lot of what Obama did or didn’t do while in office. We can argue all month on who is right and who is wrong. BUTTT; there is one thing, in my opinion that he will always be remembered by; something whose ugly head has not yet surfaced, the Iranian whore deal. That in-it-self is going to haunt the entire world for centuries to come. I wonder if that is going to appear in his ACCOMPLISHMENTS list?
Did I mention; before Mr. O got his hats, he sent Iran 400 million dollars in cold hard American currency, to release American prisoners. The relaese should have been the top priority even before negotiations began. No release, no deal; that way we could say, we did come away with something.
EVEN his staunchest supporters have to admit, those two incidents were one-sided disasters.
I guess the moral of the story is; if we are going to tell a story about someone and have it inked in the history books for eternity; let us tell the truth about them. (Hitler was a good guy, except) What is accomplished by camouflaging or sugar-coating what any person did if the truth is not told?
Let us take a step back and really critique the critical issues of where the kitchen and basketball court should be placed. Those two items alone tell a big tale about Mr. O’s and what his presidency and his accomplishments left with the American people.
One fact that can not ever be disputed; he was the first multi-racial person to sit in The Big Chair. Based on that fact, he dodged many a bullet any other president would not have, only because people were hesitant to criticize him because he was half black. They did not want to be ostracized or labeled as racists.
Chew on this one folks: Obama’s Library Architects Say Project May Need $1.5 Billion:
That is a BBB not an MMM – WOW!!
