A public park advocacy group is suing former President Barack Obama for a “con game,” accusing the former president in court of pulling a “bait and switch” and “illegal land grab.”
In 2015, the Chicago City Council approved an ordinance allowing a portion of the parkland to be released to the Obama Foundation for the purpose of housing Obama’s official presidential center.
However, Obama began making major changes to the terms after he received the ordinance. Now, Obama is planning to unveil a $500 million personal museum and monument dedicated to — you guessed it — himself.
The lawsuit argues public parkland is guarded by law and that a private entity, such as Obama and his foundation, cannot use it for private use. The deal approved by the city leaders thought it was going to be a presidential center.

But, Obama’s gigantic center will feature a museum of the egotistical couple, a test kitchen, an activity-center, basketball court, yoga centers, and many other items that were not agreed to in the 2015 deal.
Obama got the approval, and then arrogantly changed everything without informing the city at all.
The massive center is nothing more than a $500 million project for the Obama’s to glorify themselves.
In the process, they are completely screwing over the city and reneging on the original terms that everyone originally agreed to.
Also, what did Obama accomplish that is worth celebrating?
I live up to my name and speak frankly and for the silent majority so as to counter-balance the leftist, political correctness that pervades my country. I do not hold any legitimate racist feeling against anyone but I will always try to put crossed-referenced information on current events in a proper perspective that will allow for better understanding and discussions among people. My use of colourful language only adds to getting my point across. It's still a free country as far as I can see.
To put more it directly:
Freedom of speech is the paramount freedom. Without it, we struggle to exercise our other freedoms. With it, we can fight for those freedoms. It may be offensive, insulting and make some governments uncomfortable, but if this is the price to be paid for living in a society where all claims are open to question, then it is a price worth paying.
