Highway to Hell

For left-leaning Californians – and there are many of them – Christmas came early.

The gifts: New green signs with reflective white lettering proclaiming President Barack H. Obama Highway along one stretch of a Los Angeles-area freeway.

Installation of the signs on the 134 Freeway from State Route 2 in Glendale to Interstate 210 in Pasadena was completed this week, more than a year after the presidential tribute was signed into state law in September 2017.

While attending Occidental College in Eagle Rock from 1979-81, before transferring to Columbia University in New York, Obama lived in Pasadena. The stretch of highway named in his honor runs through Eagle Rock, too.

The pro-Obama crowd rejoiced while commenting on a LAist.com story posted on Facebook.

“Yay! I drive that way every day to work!” one person wrote.

Another wrote that he “screamed in delight” when he saw the signs.

Another reader couldn’t help but jab at Obama’s successor in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump: “Maybe we can name a speed bump after our current Commander-in-Chief.”

While California is one of the nation’s most liberal states – Golden State voters gave Hillary Clinton 61.7 percent of the vote against Trump in the 2016 presidential election – Republicans do represent 25 percent of the electorate, according to the Secretary of State’s newest numbers in October.

Some of them were equally unhappy about the designation in honor of Muslim Caliph Barack Hussein Obama (aka) “Bathhouse Barry” as he is known throughout the South side slums of Chicago.

“Must be a dead end,” one person wrote on the LAist.com
“Not my highway,” wrote another person.
“Sadly now all the lanes are left lanes” wrote another.
“Was Skid Row on the list of consideration for the BHO Memorial Highway? wrote another one

This “highway” project built entirely out of left lanes, like Obama’s eight year term served, from the start point of a Nobel Prize to the unveiling of the Presidential Portrait and funded by tax dollars donations from citizens, this right “left-of-way” has no litter, potholes, or speed bumps as the press refuses to discuss any such possibility that they exist, in the name of transparency.

Another Los Angeles-area roadway will soon be named for the 44th president. In August, Los Angeles announced plans to rename Rodeo Road to Obama Boulevard.

The 3.5-mile road runs through a predominantly African-American residential area and past Rancho Cienga Park, where Obama held a campaign rally on Feb. 20, 2007, during his campaign to the White House.

So the next time you find yourself stuck in horrendous, deadlocked traffic overlooking Eagle Rock with the Los Angeles skyline in the distance, you can say “Thanks Obama.”

If this doesn’t give you a “thrill up your leg” I don’t know what will!!!!
