    Im trying to figure out if it was a coincidence or he was being intentionally ironic that the event was held on Fathers Day.

    In all seriousness...good on him for the initiative.

    Mornin Cal. This morning they released coverage of some kid Obama talked to. Already this guy said.....all due to Obama telling him. That he could do something with his life now. That he is ready to do something.

    So as you can see the propaganda was already set up and ready to go for question an answer time.

    That's not so. The door is open. It is up to you to walk through it.

    .Refreshing for once, and he didn't put me to sleep like he normally does

    Some were saying this is an executive order today, too.


    Plight of US minority youths an 'outrage': Obama



    His initiative is being billed as part of his new strategy to use his executive powers to enforce political change, given that much of his domestic agenda is being blocked by Republicans in Congress.....snip~

    I'd think any high profile and well known person could start such a program.

    Without using an executive order, just as long as they're serious about private funding. I'm a bit suspicious that the end goal is yet another government funded program, but that could be wrong. My cynicism steers me wrong as much as 5% of the time.

    How many thousand times has this been done with the end results always the same. Why is the type of thing necessary meaning what will it take to motivate them to act on their own. There are literally thousands of organizations big and small telling them something as basic as "no education-no job". They need a monitor to tell them that? As long as the lack of a family structure smothers the blacks they will continue to be lost. They have very little hope and will always be less than what they could be and no ra-ra speech will change them. Shameful as it is to think the first black president says "I used to get high" when if he was a man he could be saying "the temptation was everywhere but I drew strength from within as a proud young black man and resisted". They are truly in grave danger.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
