Let me explain why this matters at all to some of us. Taken by itself, it wouldn't mean squat. It's just a single drop of rain on a parched tract
of land. However, we're not dealing with this by itself, we're dealing with a deluge of little drops of water alongside intermitant downpours when
you actually look at his policies and ideas. Take all that falling water together and suddenly our little tract of land is flooded and we're
standing on the roof waving at FEMA choppers.
Exactly what was predicted by none other than Bill Clinton (in a roundabout way) is coming to pass. I see it in my day to day life, actually. I
removed a "Volunteer for change!" Barack Obama flier from my windowshield this evening, wadded it up and tossed it into a garbage can in the park
and ride lot I use. Some heinously f'ugly chick who had an armload of them and was still tagging cars with them asked me why I did that and if I was
going to support change. I told her (nicely, believe it or not) that I had no intention of voting for Obama because his ideas do not represent the
direction I feel we should be going in. I was called a racist and told that I was against him because he's black...
This very thread has a couple examples of this same bullcrap, divert attention from the real issues rhetoric in it. Shut your damn mouths for just a
moment, Obama people, and use your brains... think hard and think clearly "might there be a legitimate (at least to them) reason a person is against
Obama for president? Is it possible that the fact he's got issues that people disagree with might mean far more than the color of his skin, the fact
that he (genetically speaking) has testicles, and he's from a background other than CHristian?" I could give two flying whoops if he was white,
black, yellow, maroon, or green... Christian, Muslim, or Jew... wore flag pins, Bozo the Clown shoes, or Groucho Marx glasses... IF I thought he would
actually make this country better, more powerfull, and my wallet fuller. The problem is I can't see him doing any of those things, so suddenly the
little issues seem like just more nails in the coffin.
