Wolf , CNN. CNN It is a strange fact of unfolding American history that the country's first black President should be followed in office by a President who has openly said racist things. President Obama had 32 mass shootings during his reign. Not many people said Obama is out of Control. Mass shootings were happening before the President even thought about running for Pres. Mitch McConnell's obstruction in the spotlight following massacres.

Come on. Everybody have a seat. Whether we have seen eye-to-eye or rarely agreed at all, my conversations with you, the American people, in living rooms and in schools, at farms and on factory floors at diners and on distant military outposts, those conversations are what have kept me honest, and kept me inspired, and kept me going. Every day, I have learned from you. You made me a better president, and you made me a better man. I was still trying to figure out who I was, still searching for a purpose to my life. It was in neighborhoods not far from here where I began working with church groups in the shadows of closed steel mills.
American History for Truthdiggers: The Obama Disappointment - Truthdig
It was on these streets where I witnessed the power of faith, and the quiet dignity of working people in the face of struggle and loss. The freedom to chase our individual dreams through our sweat and toil and imagination, and the imperative to strive together as well, to achieve a common good, a greater good. Not that our nation has been flawless from the start, but that we have shown the capacity to change, and make life better for those who follow. For every two steps forward, it often feels we take one step back.

Americans Say Barack Obama Was Best President of Their Lifetimes
The peaceful transfer of power from one freely elected president to the next. I committed to President-elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest possible transition, just as President Bush did for me. We have everything we need to meet those challenges. After all, we remain the wealthiest, most powerful, and most respected nation on Earth.

Our youth, our drive, our diversity and openness, our boundless capacity for risk and reinvention means that the future should be ours. Only if our politics better reflects the decency of the our people. Only if all of us, regardless of party affiliation or particular interest, help restore the sense of common purpose that we so badly need right now.

Our founders argued, they quarreled, and eventually they compromised. They expected us to do the same.
The beginning of this century has been one of those times. A shrinking world, growing inequality, demographic change and the specter of terrorism. And how we meet these challenges to our democracy will determine our ability to educate our kids, and create good jobs, and protect our homeland. And the good news is that today, the economy is growing again; wages, incomes, home values, and retirement accounts are all rising again; poverty is falling again. The wealthy are paying a fairer share of taxes even as the stock market shatters records. The unemployment rate is near a year low.
The uninsured rate has never, ever been lower. Healthcare costs are rising at the slowest rate in 50 years. But stark inequality is also corrosive to our democratic idea. The laid-off factory worker, the waitress or healthcare worker who struggle to pay the bills, convinced that the game is fixed against them, that their government only serves the interests of the powerful.
I agree, our trade should be fair and not just free. It will come from the relentless pace of automation that makes a lot of good, middle-class jobs obsolete. We can argue about how to best achieve these goals. After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America. Such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic. Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society. You can see it not just in statistics, you see it in the attitudes of young Americans across the political spectrum.
All of us have more work to do. When the government starts attacking U. Oh, happening. The signs are clear. We're not at a precursor stage—we are in it. This goes far beyond partisan politics, far beyond debating about policy. This is about who we are at our core and what we allow ourselves to become as a nation.
In order to get a gymnastics move named after you , you have to submit the skill for consideration and then successfully land it in a major competition. As of , there were 11 female gymnasts with moves named after them. Simone Biles was one of them. Now, she's heading into "living legend" territory. This weekend, Biles performed two of her signature moves at the world championships in Stuttgart, Germany this weekend.
Not only did she land them, they're now getting her name. Her double dismount on the balance beam will now be known at "the Biles. Her triple-double, a move that includes a double backflip and three twists, will now forever be known as "the Biles II. The West Coast is pretty much "uh" and "uhm" neutral, although the Bay area has a soft spot for "uh" and the coast from Nor Cal to Oregon particularly loves to "uhm" its way though sentences.

The gender gap is so wide, you could probably fall into it. But the gender gap, oddly enough, extends into our efforts to fix the gender gap. In an op-ed for Time, Melinda Gates highlighted the inequality in how much we're spending to address women's issues. It turns out, projects that support women receive less funding than other projects. First we make less, now this? Now, she's boldly Chanel Miller, using her name and experience to let survivors of assault know they are not alone.
Miller recently came out with a five-minute animated short entitled "I Am With You. The short was shared on the Viking Books YouTube page. Follow Us. Stories Worth Sharing. Explore more.
