When Obama took office the DOW was 7,949, and on Oct. 31, 2016, it was
18,161. That's a 128 percent increase.  Average earnings on stocks were
12%, exceeded only during Clinton and Ford's terms.

In preparing a column comparing Reagan and Obama, I found these great
tributes to Obama:

*The establishment media resented Obama’s thoughtfulness, his penchant for
prudence and deliberation before embarking on any significant course of
action. This stigmatization of intellect, I’d argue,  helped paved the way
for the monstrous manifestation  of masculine id now poised to replace him.*

—Eric Alterman, “The Crime of Obama’s Cool,” *The Nation* (1/2/17)

*People will see the sheer caliber of this man. The grace and poise with
which he conducted himself in unbelievably difficult circumstances; the way
he withstood abuse [for example, Trump’s denial of his citizenship] and
disrespect with extraordinary calm and goodwill.*

Andrew Sullivan

A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they
shall never sit in.

-Greek proverb

“Enlightenment is man’s emergence from his self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance
from another. This immaturity is self- imposed when its cause lies not in
lack of understanding, but in lack of resolve and courage to use it without
guidance from another. Sapere Aude! ‘Have courage to use your own
understand-ing!—that is the motto of enlightenment.

--Immanuel Kant
