Baba Vanga, who’s known to her followers as the ‘Nostradamus of the Balkans’, has claimed Obama is the last President of the United States of America.

I was going to post a picture of Oprah in my thread about the future and ask if she's going to be the first Buddhist president of the US. kidding, of course.

I'm sure hearing Trump's henchmen calling him a genius for "revolutionizing reality tv" has to have gotten her ire up.

The secretary of state will be a golden retriever named Barkley. And he'll do a better job than the last several humans in that position.

Oh snap, did I just make an unintentional nod to Charles Barkley as the next SOS? I think I did! :)

Trump Warns That President Oprah Would Force Americans to Read.

“People were worried about Obama coming to their homes and taking away their guns,” Trump said. “Oprah will come to your homes and leave books there, which is far, far worse.”

It's the Democratic party's standard operating procedure to tear itself apart in a frenzy of ideological posturing whenever an election approaches. So yes, she probably will.

Reagan pulled it off, so why not Oprah?

I don't think the current head of the Catholic Church is eligible to be president, given that they are already a head of state.

Poprah will have to wait until she finishes her functions there.

There absolutely are no things, nowhere and none, that arise anew, neither out of themselves, nor out of non-self, nor out of both, nor at random.
सर्वं तथ्यं न वा तथ्यं तथ्यं चातथ्यम् एव च नैवातथ्यं नैव तथ्यम् एतद् बुद्धानुशासनम्
All is so, or all is not so, both so and not so, neither so nor not so. This is the Buddha's teaching.
