President Obama, you missed everything but this song and the end of the war. This was the fabric that defined our culture. We had a war going on but you missed most of that in Indonesia. This was how it was for us, we were insiders, and our fear and loss bound us together. Some of our friends and family died but that probably didn't effect you. Our country was a little fucked up, but we still believed in it. Natural born or not, on the ground from Jakarta (prob 1972, see photo) just in time to hear this tune but not really feel this tune, I'll always just see you as an outsider. Sorry.
Obama in Hawaii with Maya and Ann and maternal grand-father, shortly after leaving Indonesia. In this photo- purportedly shot in Sept. 1971, Obama had just turned 10. Half sister Maya was born in Aug. of 1970. She would be 13 months old in this photo. Are you buying that shit? Nada. This photo is at least circa '72 if not early '73. Obama looks at least 11 here.
