Yes, of course I signed it.

Courtesy of HuffPo:

More than 80,000 people have signed a petition urging the city of New York to rename a portion of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue — a stretch that includes Trump Tower — after former President Barack Obama.

If the petition is successful, Trump Tower, the heart of President Donald Trump’s real estate empire and where he maintains a residence, will boast a new address: 725 President Barack H. Obama Ave.

The petition on ― which has attracted a number of famous supporters, including actors Patricia Arquette and Marg Helgenberger ― asks New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city leaders to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets after Obama in honor of his achievements as president.

When HuffPo wrote this article the number of signatories stood at around 80,000, but as of this post it has already exceeded 100,000.

I think this is exactly the kind of thing that will Drive Trump crazy, which makes it something with which I just had to participate.

    Somebody didn’t think this through far enough. As someone else posted, on another site, this would have Trump “towering” over Obama. I think something more akin to Traitor’s Way or Vlad Avenue would have been more on point.

      Yeah, I don’t think too many people would see this as Trump looking down on Obama.

      But nice try.

      • Anon August 14, 2019 at 12:45 pm

        Why are you always so rude? Nice try? What was I trying aside from giving Trump Nation ammo? I suppose you think Pound MeToo was flawless.

      I am in full agreement with u. That is EXACTLY how the right wing would twist it. I’m not sure why G was so snarky, because it really would happen with the twisted thinking that goes on in right wing thinking.

      AND I signed the petition before * I * thought it thru, too.

      Trump knows nothing about economics. He is still pushing the universally debunked lie that China is paying the US tariffs. Trump is losing it and making an argument that people know is not true.

      • POS-POTUS August 14, 2019 at 4:27 pm

        Why he announced that tariffs would be postponed until after Christmas so families could afford gifts for their kids.

      FB>”The Great Charles Payne?”
      I mean, you DO know this assclown’s background, ri … OH! Yeah. Yeah. I see. I get it. Anybody else, but TRUMP, sure. Trump, yeah, okay, I can totally see why Trump would think a guy with a string of SEC violations, a reputation for false statements on Fox News, and a guy who was accused of rape while involved in a three-three-long year extramarital affair, is “great.” Sure. I can see that.
      I can see that.
      But, hey, at least the second guy he praises is an expert.
      Sure Stuart Varney is a guy who has NEVER done anything but be a talking head. Literally never had any other job. That’s his entire career, TV talking head. But, that’s sort of actually like being a real expert on the economy, isn’t it?
      Because these jackasses are on Fox News and they talk real loud and they say what Trump wants to hear, Trump thinks they’re actual experts instead just a couple of goofs on TV.
      At the same time, Trump ignores actual experts.
      Who are right now predicting another economic collapse as is usual every time a Republican gets into office lately.
      This is typical of Trump. This embrace of personalities over expertise. But it’s not just that. This is America. That’s how Trump ended up in office. This idea that any random dipshit’s opinion is equal to education, training, experience, expertise. This is America from vaccines to climate change to biology to military strategy to national security to the economy.
      This is what happens when education is mocked as elitism by a society.
      And the consequences of this stupidity are disaster, every time.”

        You know Mr. Wright doesn’t take plagiarism lightly, don’t you?

        Well, don’t you?

        Because posting this, with his name as your user name, is exactly that.

          Gryph can stop that.
          He approves or disapproves everything. It’s not a competition, some of us enjoy both. No more of this guy, please, live in harmony.

          Lighten up. It was all quoted as Jim’s FB Posting.

    ‘The Family’: The Evangelicals Trying to Turn America Into a Theocracy

    ccording to The Family, Netflix’s unnerving new five-part documentary series, the most powerful club in America is a consortium of religious true believers bound by their fanatical love of Jesus. It has no official membership and requires no dues. It works overtime to avoid publicity. Its ranks are comprised of both Republicans and Democrats.

    And it seeks the eradication of the separation of church and state in its quest for its most coveted asset: power.

    Wallace played a selection of clips from Trump’s event in Pennsylvania on Tuesday where the president said, “I think we’re looking good all over in Ohio, in North Carolina, in South Carolina, Florida. We just got numbers in Florida. Looking fantastically good. I got sued on a thing called emoluments. Ever heard of it? Nobody heard of it before. Nobody looks at Obama getting $16 million for a book. Even though nobody in history got that much for a book. They said don’t worry about the.. do we have umbrellas? Umbrellas work very well. Especially when they’re made in America. I always love trucks. I still do. Nothing changes. Sometimes you might become president but nothing changes. I still love trucks.”

    The MSNBC host said, “World is on fire and Trump is musing publicly about his poll numbers in battleground states, his love of umbrellas and trucks and President Obama’s book deal.”
    Trump is ranting about umbrellas and trucks while the situation in Hong Kong deteriorates and the United States moves toward recession. Trump is trying to paint Joe Biden as crazy and unfit for the presidency. The reality is that Trump is showing the country how unfit he is every single day.

    They didn’t think this petition thing through though. The person has to be DECEASED in order to have a street named after them… they better start a petition to change that law or statute or whatever it is called.

    The woman that started it did it as a joke. Colbert thinks it’s brilliant. I hope they do it. Such sweet revenge. Best idea yet to troll Trump.
