Fingers crossed, I am on the list to see Barack Obama’s farewell speech here in Chicago later today. I was not able to go to the White House conference I was invited to over the summer. But, through some well-timed emails, and the power of the Force and Crom, I should be pretty close to the stage when America’s first black president gives his farewell address here in Chicago. If you see a turtle-like and grotesque looking black man with an odd looking goatee, please do yell at the TV machine and give Chauncey DeVega some love.

In his speech, Obama will channel George Washington. He will be cerebral and reflective. He will cut his own version of a pro wrestling promo on Donald Trump–in a dignified way of course. There will be some tears in the house for sure.

I am excited to witness this in person. I am also saddened to see one of America’s greatest presidents say goodbye. I am disgusted with now being forced to reckon with an incompetent ignoramus and bigot named Donald Trump who will soon be soiling The White House. I doubt that I am alone in that sentiment.

Nothing fancy here. But I am sincerely curious. What do you expect from Barack Obama’s farewell address? If you had a chance to ask him a question during these final weeks in office what would it be? And if you had an opportunity to speak with Barack Obama in private during this time what would you ask or request of him?

    I would ask him why he sports a mindset of third world dictatorships. I would ask him why there are more impoverished inner city children who are hard pressed for a decent meal and pair of shoes, while his wife spends 30,000 dollars per dress which would support a black impoverish family for a year. I would ask why his wife went on 85 million dollars worth of vacations when the inner city’s could of built 14 new schools stocked with books and materials for the children. I would ask him why he thought we should go to war and destroy 3 country’s that are now in shambles and run by mob rule with no infrastructure left to support life. I would ask him why the murder rate is higher in Chicago now then before he took office and where does he think the people that are left there will live when they have turned it into another Detroit. Or will it just be filled with gangs like Detroit where life is a crap shoot. I would ask him why he says he loves his bothers and sisters, but treats them like his worst enemy.
