    I ask this because it's almost like he wasn't part of anything to do with Obama's 8 years.
    Absolutely forgot that Obama had a Vice pResident,

    Am I the only one that has forgotten about his VP as well?
    Had to check just to see it was still Joe Biden.

    Also, with all the hubbub about Trump, there are some weird similarities with Biden and Trump.
    Not sure what it is, but here are some clips of Biden.






    Some of these interactions just seem like a doty old grandfather, but others... not sure what to make of them.

    Some may say that they will miss Joe, but how can you miss someone that was basically asleep the last 8 years?



    To be fair, ole girl in the back was about to count some sheep too. This speech must have been after everybody ate or something... itis kicking in?

    Just saying in recent history, I recall VP's being more active, so to speak.
    Michelle Obama seems to have been the defacto VP, just by her appearing more active.

    Yeah, I think that is creepy.


    Then there is the crime bill which the Clinton's get raked over the coals for. Joe Biden was the co-author of that bill.

    He's kinda scary, huh? As A VP, he's been instrumental in calling attention to sexual assault on college campuses using the statistic - 1 in 5 women in college will be sexually assaulted. So as a result, Title IX is being heavily enforced in higher education which requires a lot of money be put into programs and training on Title IX. That was Biden's contribution to the Obama Administration.

    Interesting, wouldn't have known of this if this wasn't pointed out.

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-pres...ces-new-administration-effort-help-nation-s-s

    So he amended IX to proclaim discrimination on the basis of sex to include sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery and sexual coercion?

    Keep in mind, this is the VP for Obama at the moment, and people wonder why Hillary will do anything to change the 1994 crime bill that she supported, but Obama didn't...


    And from what I have heard/read (can't find it now), Biden was reportedly seeking a cabinet position when Hillary is sElected.

    For all intent and purposes, by today's Title IX enforcement standards, Bill Clinton would have been impeached and probably suffered other penalties in addition to him losing his license to practice law. Title IX is broad as you noted, Bro. UB -- it includes sexual violence, such as rape, inappropriate touching (doesn't have to be penetration), and things you say. Bill would have certainly fallen within the definition somewhere on that scale, and so should have Clarence Thomas when his accuser, Anita Hill testified at his Congressional hearing. Accused of having a conversation with her about "Long Dong Silver"? Really? Yeah, he's buck nasty and sleazy too and got the nerve to be a sitting justice in the highest court in the country....wow! :10100:

    This is in the context of Obama...



    But with the recent uptick in outcry and shock of misogynistic language, from many including Michelle Obama...


    Rick Ross was featured in a song a few years back entitled U.O.E.N.O. in which he alludes to giving a female an intoxicant and then engaging in sexual activity without her being aware

    Being a hip hop head, Jay Z, Nas, Rakim, Grand Puba, Kool Moe and on and on, it's all relative and in it's own world. But when the different worlds collide, is when the apparent hypocrisy and possible pander is presented:

    TIME MAGAZINE: HALF OF JAY-Z’S CATALOG INCLUDES ‘B***H’

    Journalist Claire Suddath actually counts how many times the term appears in the rapper’s lyrics

    Some TIME writers and I combed through the lyrics to Jay-Z’s 15 studio albums (both solo and collaborative) and this is what we’ve found: 109 out of 217 songs contain the word “B***h.” That’s 50.2% of Jay-Z’s entire lyrical output.​

    Chad: Jay-Z success story built on violence, misogyny

    He was born Shawn Carter, he became Jay-Z, and the 43-year-old rapper and industrialist has become one of the most unlikely success stories in an American landscape littered with them.

    By day he is a pinstriped, sweet-talking entrepreneur, cutting deals with corporate America; by night he is a profane, misogynistic hip-hop mogul, glorifying violence against that same America. He boldly steps between Main Street and the mean streets with ease and abandon.

    President Barack Obama celebrates Jay-Z and elicits his support, yet it is difficult to believe POTUS the parent would ever want his adolescent daughters exposed to Jay-Z’s serial characterization of women as “b*****s” and “h*s.”​

    Sasha and Malia Obama hanging with Jay and Bey...








    Wonder what Joe (take em behind the gym) Biden thinks of certain rappers and lyrics? (facetious)

    Could care less what he thinks, as most Maim Stream politricksters present what they think people want, and rarely what is needed.

    Oh, no! He's a clown. He has foot in mouth disease. That proves it. Isn't Secretary Of State one of the people who is suppose to protect this country? Hillary would pick him…again? Proof!
