The President of the United States probably has little power, although he can seem like he has some. Most likely, the bankers and multi-nationals control his every public move, and can wield pressure unimaginable to most of us to assure the president stays in line.
Barack Obama has done virtually nothing of value during his 2.5 years in office. His speeches yield no insight on his part. He has not only abandoned the one campaign promise I cared about, he has allowed his minions to shred it.
That was the promise to stop prosecutions under federal law of folks who followed state law in using or distributing cannabis for medical use.
I can see no hope and no use for the man.
