    At least I am asking, why hide them? Normally, I'd take a persons word for it, unless I had reason not to trust them. Obama? Let's just say we've got that in spades. There's more reason to distrust him than to trust him. I need proof with this guy. Rock solid proof. There is no room for any doubt. He's a proven liar, so there's no trust to be had. How do I know he wasn't just shuffled along, with a little outside, affirmative action, help? Well, we don't know that, and he's not willing to tell.

    He's never been exceptional about anything (other than fooling people), he is the bottom of the barrel as president, so I don't think it would be smart to believe that the one thing that he was really, really great at, will be hidden at all costs.
    No, seriously, are you even a college graduate? Because you seem to be quite clueless about it. Let me break it down for you, slowly:

    Magna. Cum. Laude. Is. Only. Given. To. Students. With. The. Highest. Grades.
    It. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. Affirmative. Action.
    A. Student. Who. Graduated. With. Magna. Cum. Laude. Has. The. Highest. Grades. In. His. Class.
    There's. Never. Been. And. There. Will. Never. Be. Any. Student. Earning. Magna. Cum. Laude. Without. Having. Earned. The. Highest. Grades.
    It's. Inbuilt. In. The. System.
    Magan. Cum. Laude. Equals. Highest. Grades.
    No. Exceptions. No. Affirmative. Action.
    Affirmative. Action. Is. For. Admission.
    It. Has. Nothing. To. Do. With. Magna. Cum. Laude. And. Grades.

    Got it?
    I know you didn't.
    College and Magna Cum Laude are concepts WAAAAYYYYY out of your league.
    So, be stupid and continue to sustain your impossible point which only proves how ignorant you are.

    Again, I don't even support this president in most of what he does, but to pretend he didn't have good grades while we know for a fact that he graduated Magna cum Laude is just PLAIN STUPID AND IGNORANT.

    He can be a liar as much as he wants, but the Magna cum Laude system at COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY of all places (by the way, that's where I got *my* degree from - do you even begin to grasp what Columbia University stands for???) is absolutely beyond doubt.

    Interesting. My link is in Portuguese, so, sorry for those who don't speak it (I do) but it's the only link I saw that reports on this.

    Queda do voo MH17 na Ucrânia pode prejudicar Putin - Terra Brasil

    Mind you. Brazil, a member of the BRICS, with a government that is extremely sympathetic to Russia, is getting really weary of Putin given the shooting down of MH17.

    This doesn't bode well for Putin.

    Brazil!!! Very committed BRICS member. Very much against the United States and weary of the European Union. Much more in tune with Russia and China.

    Even Brazil is getting fed up with Putin and upset at the MH17 incident.

    Putin, soon enough you'll be a pariah.

    To be fair now, each university makes it's own rules on what constitutes Latin honors. And no, Magna Cum Laude is not only given to the students with the highest grades. That may be Columbia's structure, but each makes their own. Basically it means their work was considered exceptional.

    Trust me. At Columbia, only the students with the highest grades *and* exceptional work get Magna cum Laude. I personally know all who got it in my class (unfortunately, I didn't) and know what their grades were. OK, to be fair, a handful of people went even higher (summa cum laude), but just a few, very few. Magna cum laude was still at least 95th percentile, with summa at 99th. Me, I merely graduated cum laude.

    What if the idea everyone is pushing is just war propaganda?

    No the best I could do was a degree with honors. What difference does it make whether I was Magna Cum Laude or not? Didn't help I was a lead singer in a rock band during my last year in college.

    But most people that know anything about academics know what Magna Cum Laude is. Apparently you don't or you wouldn't be asking about his grades.

    Still pretty dumb to be asking for someone's grades that graduted Magna Cum Laude as if to doubt they made good grades. But I understand there are still those that doubt a black man is capable of it, as are those that can't believe he's not a muslim, or he is a U.S. citizen. You can't fix stupid.

    Some of the images of today



    and from Dutch television



    At the airport you can only see the dignitaries, our King and Queen, Prime minister, representatives of the governments and or royal families from the countries the other victims came from, Dutch politicians, etc. The other really obvious ones there are the soldiers (from all branches of the armed forces, marines, air force, army and the military police) and the hearses and their drivers who drove off the landing strip behind 4 motor cyclists from the Military Police. When the motorcade of hearses left in earnest, there was an honor guard at the front of 8 motor cyclists of the Military Police (the branch of the armed forces my brother in law currently serves with) but also there was an escort of police vehicles as well as police motor cyclists who cleared roads and crossings so that the motorcade had no problems in getting to their destination in Hilversum. A lot of Dutch people amassed on motor overpasses, on and off ramps of the freeway as well as on the roads the motorcade was driving along.

    It has been an emotional days today and with several more of these days going to come, it was good to see the respect the victims received from the Dutch military in a serene manner of loading the coffins onto the hearses. The poor victims have been defiled enough by the separatist scum in the past few days.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    What a brilliant deduction. Seems to me you are not comprehending my posts, unless there is another problem.
