  • Trump for President

    President Obama and his friends were all cocaine users and dealers. Why bust this guy?

    • J W

      More racist crap from the party of white power. We black and brown people are going to be the reason the Trumpanzee loses. Hope you like being disappointed this election day.

      • Frank Rizzo

        You blacks are 13 percent of America if that…..you always try to stir up the Hispanics with your racial crap…the Hispanics are a better bunch if people…I’m not so sure they buy into your woes me..I’m black and can’t make it because of my skin color…meanwhile the Koreans…Indians…and everyone else is thriving…

      • J W

        We can’t make it because you people hate us and are more interested in killing us. That’s what a nation driven by white supremacy does.

      • Frank Rizzo

        So why would you say whites hate you more because of your skin color than they hate other brown people…why are other brown people thriving…why are Latinos now owning the landscape companies and your people are not

      • east coast resident

        Frank, I have to agree with you on this. You dont have to be racist to see this statement as being true. If blacks were more enterprising they would have made a success of themselves. In my area, we have a black asphalt contractor. An older man, very reliable and hard working. We hired him and never looked at his color. Only the work he’s done. And we kept him after all these years.

      • Smokin

        It’s not always black or white…it’s show respect…get respect.

        Simple !

      • J W

        Then give black people the same respect you give white people. Stop with the double standards. That includes black Presidents too.

      • Smokin

        It’s a shame but everyone with issues always think everyone fit in same mold…but you don’t know me ..I treat everyone equal unless they give me a reason not to …like I said give respect get respect…if more people removed that chip on there shoulder we would be better off…there’s bad in all races agreed ..but not everyone hates everybody..unless you give them a reason…people always assume…the world if f..up…

      • J W

        You still don’t get it. The idea that black people need to earn basic respect you automatically afford white people is the problem. You’re the one with a chip on your should. We don’t exist to serve you anymore.

      • Smokin

        I get it you can’t except someone saying just treat people the right way and you will be treated same

      • J W

        We can treat you with all the respect in the world and you’ll still find some excuse. You people are in love with double standards.

      • Smokin

        You need help my friend…one sided not willing look beyond to making a change ..

      • KaayC

        “You people”?

      • J W

        Yeah, don’t act like all you white people don’t say the n-word behind closed door either. We know the score.

      • KaayC

        Actually not. The truth is about the only time I hear that word used is in films about the Civil War or the Civil Rights movement and the rap music world. Michael Richards used it and it destroyed his career. I think something racial hurt you to the core. Don’t let hate consume you JW. Generally I think whenever we use statements that are all or never we are off target. I repeat, It’s a mixed-up shook-up world.

      • Goodgrief

        Agree KaayC, about the only time I hear the “N” word anymore is when it is used by black people. Just heard it on TV two days ago said by a black.

      • J W

        Maybe it has something to do with all the unarmed black men constantly being killed in this country. You know, the ones you celebrate every time you hear about them you worthless KKK boss.

      • east coast resident

        The fact is that many blacks have made it in this country. Look at the response of blacks to Trump’s dark description of black every day life. Many blacks rejected the picture of desolation, unemployment and random death in black neighborhoods. They said that view does not correspond to their experience, even though it is true at some areas. As for white people being interested in killing blacks, we all know that’s not true. If only more blacks could follow Obama’s lead and be more family focused, hard working, not talking ‘black”, respecting women and themselves, life would have been easier for them and for the rest of America. The fact is that even where blacks are not ruled by whites, as in Africa, crime and poverty is rampant. As a matter of fact, I haven’t seen a black country that resembles a white country. I wish someone had an explanation of that. You dont have to be a Klan to realize that. Blacks have to help themselves, if they want to be accepted.

      • J W

        Yeah, and everytime one of us makes it, people try to take the win away from us. We get a a black President with a great family and all people do is say he’s from Kenya and that his wife is a crack whore. This ever happen to white Presidents? Nope. Different rules apply to us. We have to be twice as get to get half as far. And we’re tired of that disrespect. And even when we are making it, like Filando Castile, and doing well as law-abiding citizens, we might still get executed by the police. Stop looking at us as a threat that justifies our extermination and challenge people who hold these cancerous views like Frank Rizzo and avgjoe. This country is racist to the core and the Trumpanzee crowd has made it ever worse. 400 years after coming to this country in chains, we’re still 3rd class citizens.

        Any time someone has power, he has opposition. Obama, who I consider the best modern president, has an approval rating of over 55%. Sure there are haters out there. But, there’s a lot more people approving of him, than of most white presidents. And he deserves it. Is the world perfect? of course not. American blacks are much better off than if they were in any other country whether in Africa or anywhere else. If there could be less violence amongst the black community, more responsibility in bringing up children, more love and respect and less hate, there would be more respect towards the black community from the police and their fellow citizens. Sure, blacks have been killed needlessly and without posing a threat. But, the same thing can be said of whites. There was a shooting of a white teenager here in brick, a few months ago. It happened in the cherrywood development on lanes mill rd. He was carrying a flashlight, if I;m not mistaken and the police killed him. It wasn’t racially motivated. Nothing has been done about it. No one has heard anything else of it. If it was a black kid, there would have been riots. Do you see what I mean?

      • KaayC

        Why does everybody forget, our president is also half white? So convenient to try to negate that fact. He was raised by his white mother.

      • east coast resident

        I agree with that, He was raised by his white grandparents and he really didn’t discover that he was ‘black” until after college. It was a personal decision for Obama to define himself as black and marry a black woman, that has white ancestors, I might add. His mannerisms, his demeanor, is definitely not “black American”. I’m sure, if it was, he would have never been elected president. Michelle Obama herself said that she was always studying and wanted to better herself, even though she was excoriated for “acting white” The black community has to understand that by educating and bettering themselves does not mean that they deny their blackness. That’s the only way they would be able to advance and earn respect at the same time. You can’r demand respect, unless you’ve earned it

      • Goodgrief

        Good observations ECR but if I had said the exact same thing old you know who would scream racist.

      • east coast resident

        I believe in telling the truth, as I see it, in a respectful manner. If someone disagrees with it, let him or her, state why they disagree. I certainly don’t believe in disrespecting people, as Trump does.

      • Goodgrief

        Trump is crass. However I lean towards him because I am tired of professional politicians just giving lip service.
        Do you think Trump calling Clinton a liar is disrespectful? How else can he point that fact out?

      • east coast resident

        Well, he calls her a liar, crooked, a bigot and God knows what else in the future. The fact that Hillary is an established politician is not a bad thing. She has learned from her mistakes and has done plenty of good things. Many people like Trump because of the same reason you do, but, would you go to a doctor that’s an electrician, or to a mechanic that’s a plumber? Of course not. No one is perfect, Hillary included. Its common knowledge that the email controversy is not anything serious. The same with the Benghazi deaths. When someone accepts a placement in a Muslim country, as the American ambassador to Libya did, danger goes with the job. Clinton could not baby him. He took a known risk and got killed. She didn’t kill him.

      • Goodgrief

        ECR what we are doing is conversing and I thank you for the courtesy you have shown.
        Your plumber electrician example is exactly what many Trump supporters are doing….trying to get away from the professional politician who we feel ‘spin doctor’ facts into eventual lies. I feel she has been caught in them. Even if you do not feel the email facts are important many do think it weakened the USA. As for Benghazi I personally feel that is a big deal because people died who did not have to. Nobody signed up to be killed. Also telling the survivors that they died because of a movie was a blatant lie.
        I understand you will vote one way and me another. This is just an attempt to show you why I chose my way.

      • east coast resident

        Let’s hope the best man (or woman) wins. For the sake of our country

      • Goodgrief

        Agree because the Country is in a very fragile and weak state at this time.

      • east coast resident

        I have to disagree with you there. The country is not in a weak state. If Trump is elected, it will be. Obama has done a great job,
        bring back America from the brink of destruction that the imbecile Bush had brought it to. Look at the statistics. Unemployment is less than 5%, from more than 12%. The stock market is up to almost 19,000 from 7,000. More than 20 mill people are covered by health insurance, that weren’t before. American soldiers are not dying in Iraq. Elect Trump and you”ll lose America.

      • Goodgrief

        I must disagree on Obama’s performance. He is not respected like previous presidents have been. People question his true stance on ISIS. But on that I will stop and end our “conversation” since you have started with the liberal name calling.

      • east coast resident

        Obamas approval rating is 51%. W. Bush’s was 25% at the same time in his presidency. Obama is one of the most popular and well liked modern presidents. You’re making a big mistake if you vote for Trump. How can any decent person vote for the biggest manipulator, liar, immoral person that ever ran for president

      • Trump for President

        Emails not serious? Yea, if you are a dishonest America hating cheating lying, traitor, they are not serious.
        Hillary is the most crooked person to ever run for president. She should be in prison.
        Nixon did Nothing compared to what the last 3 presidents have done. Clinton, Bush, Obama.
        Hillary will be worse than All put together.

      • east coast resident

        I guess it would be a waste of time to try and persuade you, to change sides. Your name says it all.

      • J W

        Too bad your Trumpanzee is gonna lose. I can’t wait to rub it in your face. 10 weeks away or so if I am not mistaken?

      • east coast resident

        I can’t wait either. Maybe all the Trump lovers would move to Canada.
        But, Canada wouldn’t want them. How about the South pole? With no shelter. And no food. Trump would look after them. He”ll send his airplane with all their needs, like he contributed to all those charities he claims he did. Or like the wall he’s gonna make mexico pay for.

      • J W

        Putin’s Russia will welcome the immigrants/refugees. They will appreciate his love for civil and political rights as they work hard for their newfound citizenship in a Siberian gulag. It’s what they want.

  • Trump for President

    Obama had written in his first book, “Dreams From My Father” (1995), before entering politics, that he had used marijuana and cocaine (“maybe a little blow”). He said he had not tried heroin because he did not like the pusher who was trying to sell it to him.

    • KaayC

      As did many of his generation and era. The difference is he went on to be president. He deserves our respect for that, not denigration of past deeds. I believe in redemption. In the end analysis the world will not remember what you or I say here, but they will remember him.

      • Trump for President

        They will remeber Obama for starting the destruction of America.
        Releasing terrorists from prison to strike again, emtying Americas prisons , empowering and funding Iran’s terrorist government, allowing Isis to thrive and establish around the globe. Politicising the IRS and the FBI and the Justice Dept.
        But most of all, allowing race relations in this country to deteriorate into what is happening now.
        Obama is a divder, not a unifier.

      • east coast resident

        Trump follower. You are wrong. Obama has been the best modern president. Unemployment was 14% when he took over, it is now less than 5%. The stock market was 7,000, it is now almost 19,000. 20 million Americans have health insurance that never did before. Crime is way down, even though it had started to fall before him, but, it has continued to fall, contrary to what you’re saying. Your statements of “releasing terrorists to strike again” is totally unfounded. Guantanamo is still in business, even though he wanted to close it. many of the prisoners there are not terrorists, just suspects, but never proven to be terrorists. Besides, you can’t imprison your way out of terrorism. As for him emptying prisons is also an exageration. he has given pardon to more non-violent prisoners than other presidents, but, its a long way of “emptying prisons”. Judging from your name, you are a Trump follower, in more ways than one. You also parrot his baseless accusations. Obama would have been a unifier, if it wasn’t for the republican congress fighting him every step of the way. As for this country having deteriorated, I dont see it. America is doing much better than any other country, by any measure, thanks to Obama. Only FOX watchers, such as you and many others would see things that sensible people don’t

      • KaayC

        “They will remeber (sic) Obama for starting the destruction of America”

        I am afraid the oligarchy of Reagan, Clinton and the Bushes have that honour. I think overall, President Obama has comported himself with excellent decorum despite some problematic policies the most recent being Kayla Mueller. That world events have never been more uncertain cannot be blamed solely on his administration. BTW I did not vote for him in one election because I am an independent and supported Dr. Ron Paul and before that Ross Perot. I believe the downfall of this country has been twenty years of DemocRAT and RepublicRAT politics. I did like Obama better than George Bush for his literacy and ability to speak. He also had squat all to do w. NAFTA unlike the Bushes and Clintons. “The giant sucking sound of our jobs heading south!” ( Ross WAS boss!”)
        I do not like any of my voting options and may write in Mickey Mouse, but not liking the gator incident either.
        It’s a mixed-up shook-up world.

And they’re all Trumpanzee suckers who think we’re defective for refusing to vote for their cheesy reality show celebrity that says the same filth that they do. You people are braindead.

    • east coast resident

      JW. Why turn everything into a racist battle? The guy is black, he’s wrong at what he’s doing, he should be off the streets. Simple as that. I have never heard that Brick is the center of Klan country. Where have you seen that?. Any proof? As for Trump lovers, there are plenty in Brick. Which is a shame. Brick was always republican majority. Too much FOX TV watching. They will be upset after November 11th.
