Barack Obama was actually receiving some praise from conservatives because he came out against the &ldquo;cancel culture.&rdquo; As liberal as Obama is, how can conservatives possibly agree with anything he says? Also what is &ldquo;woke?&rdquo; &ndash; Not so Hip in Hoboken<br />\n Dear Hip: &nbsp;<br />\n A blind squirrel finds a nut occasionally and the same holds true for Barack Obama. Here are Obama&rsquo;s comments I believe you&rsquo;re referring to: &ldquo;I do get a sense sometimes now among certain young people, and this is accelerated by social media &mdash; there is this sense sometimes of the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people, and that&rsquo;s enough. If I tweet or hashtag about how you didn&rsquo;t do something right or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself. Did you see how woke I was, I called you out&hellip; That&rsquo;s not activism. That&rsquo;s not bringing about change. If all you&rsquo;re doing is casting stones, you&rsquo;re probably not going to get that far.&rdquo;<br />\n Obama was talking about this notion that if a speaker is going to say anything liberals disagree with the event should be protested until it is &ldquo;cancelled.&rdquo; We&rsquo;ve seen this on college campuses&nbsp; with whiny students demanding safe spaces when people like Candace Owens, Ben Shapiro, etc. are scheduled to speak. Isn&rsquo;t that nice coming from a party that is so open minded, and dripping with free speech? I don&rsquo;t often give Obama credit, but I believe he sees the damage this &ldquo;cancel culture&rdquo; is doing to the Democrat party&rsquo;s chances in 2020.<br />\n According to Urban Dictionary &ldquo;woke&rdquo; is the act of being very pretentious about how much you care about a social issue as in: I wish people were more &ldquo;woke&rdquo; on President Trump&rsquo;s economy and how it has helped the black community. Okay liberals will probably never utter that sentence.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n San Francisco is once again showing why it is the true capital of &ldquo;the land of fruits and nuts.&rdquo; They&rsquo;re refusing to do business with 22 states that have prolife laws. Can&rsquo;t they just stick to filling potholes and dealing with their homeless problem? &ndash; Common Sense Sam<br />\n Dear Sam:<br />\n I&rsquo;ll let former California Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro answer that question. On Fox and Friends, Del Beccaro said that California &ldquo;should be paying more attention to internal issues, rather than imposing their values on others. But, keep in mind how hypocritical they are. The city of San Francisco and the state of California do a ton of business with China. Which does what? Forced abortions, killing of people of wrong religions, shutting down of churches...They don&rsquo;t have a problem doing business with China, but Iowa? Boy, they must be bad people.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n There are rumblings that Hillary views herself as some kind of Democrat savior and might enter the presidential race for a third time. Please tell me this isn&rsquo;t true. &ndash; Same Old Song<br />\n Dear Same: &nbsp;<br />\n I wish I could, but with Hillary&rsquo;s incessant blathering and fragile ego, anything&rsquo;s possible. On top of that, Bill probably wants her out of the house and back on the campaign trail.<br />\n From a political analysis standpoint, there&rsquo;s no guarantee that Hillary would even make it out of the Democrat primary as the nominee. Normally by this stage of a presidential campaign a candidate has to have a substantial team in place, especially the fundraising arm. Today the leading Democrat contenders have solidified their positions in the polls and much of the top campaign talent is already aligned with them.<br />\n I believe if Hillary plans to enter the race, she is purposely avoiding the pre-Iowa debates and is waiting. She knows she can&rsquo;t enter the primaries as a traditional Democrat because she&rsquo;ll lose the nomination, however if Hillary tacks too far left she jeopardizes the presidency. As illustrated by&nbsp;&nbsp; her nonstop babbling for the last three years, she is blinded by this Moby Dick she&rsquo;s chasing called the White House. She seems to think all the Bernie, Warren, and Biden supporters will magically rollover like good doggies and accept Hillary as the nominee again. Stranger things have happened, and the Clinton&rsquo;s do have a way with changing the rules in their favor.<br />\n &nbsp;<br />\n E-mail your questions to markl <a href=\"mailto:evy92@aol.com\">evy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1574083038, expire = 1574169438, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:5be2927e0362da2fae2d877d19f5c7d8' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
