Hey slayer
Great thread as always


Lets all hope its a good change. Personaly I like the guy. He may be a puppet for the NWO and all that stuff.. but atleast it can give kids hope that no matter who are what you look like you CAN be POTUS..

I like that idea


Sometimes i question the NWO stuff becouse of JFK he to me was amazing and on level peg with MKL.

I fear that he may p#off afew people if he is infact who he is.. and stands by it.

History will be made today No matter what anyone says...

To me this is all about leadership--Obama is providing that crucial component that has been missing for the last 8 years.

I don't know what he will deliver, but the US and rest of the world are ecstatic about him, so that is a good start.

I have never quite understood what it means to say that America has "the moral high ground"....

America is the moral authority on what exactly?

I just read that Robert Gates is going to be the designated survivor at the Inauguration tomorrow. If something catastrophic happens and Obama and the rest of the cabinet is killed, Gates will become president. If this occurs, I would not be surprised if the attack were some sort of coup to prevent Obama's withdrawal from Iraq and more dovish foreign policy.

Given that a lot of the world population are not very pleased with America their being ecstatic may not be a good thing. They may view him as a weakness and no threat to them.

I tend to believe that they are mostly ecstatic of Bush leaving.
Don't get me wrong, I am super happy that Obama got elected but we really don't know what kind of a job he will do, we have to sit and wait, hoping for the best, but believe me, I am almost throwing confetti just to see Bush gone forever. I really hope he crawls back into the hole he came out of and doesn't come out again.

I also think America has made the right choice.

After Bush has pretty much destroyed the global view of America, I hope Obama will take a more diplomatic approach, understanding that the best way to create security is to not create enemies to begin with.

By this, I also mean within the nation.
Before 9/11, terrorist acts on American soil were carried out by Americans. This worry hasn't gone away, in fact it has increased. But Bush spent the last seven years telling you all that it was "out there" and that the threats were from "other people". Thereby allowing America to trample all over the planet doing whatever they pleased.

He created a fictitious war against an invisible enemy. And in doing so, he minimized the rights of Americans, changed the fundamental basis of your freedoms, removed many of your opportunities to disagree, and bolstered the power the president has over the nation to a level never before seen.

Globally, he made a mockery of America. He made the people a joke to be ridiculed (you voted him back in a second time!?).
Whenever he spoke, people around the world listened, but not with respect and admiration, with suspicion.
Every time he announced a plan, made a speech, said "Mornin'" the world wondered what was in it for him, how he was helping his rich cronies, how he'd use what he was saying to excuse another overstepping of the mark and snatch a few more rights away from Americans.

I stopped hearing a president in 2001, and I started hearing a maniacal CEO with delusions that he was in charge of the worlds largest corporation.

I hope Obama will change America in every way. You all need it, and so does the rest of the world.

I guess we'll see just how deep the "other" government runs, and whether he can fight them enough to make true changes which will clearly be seen.

I'll be watching, and possibly hoping for just as dynamic a leader in the UK some time soon.

I kow I didn't get the whole qoute. You are right he did minimize the rights of the American people and beefed up the power of the president, but for who, their was no martial law, no way for him to stay in office longer. So all he really did was set all these things up for the next president.

One person does not send the country to the crapper. It goes from president to president. Yes Bush didn't do anything in office but become more powerful and waste our resources. Now Obama has the added power. There is no such thing as a "good polotician" they are all crooks. Obama will be no different from the rest.

My opinions only.

I think people are looking too far into this from a NWO perspective.

I see the current America as a corporation. It's like one massive business, a machine with cogs.

Look at Coca Cola.
It's a huge corporation. Most of the people within it are good, caring people. I would suggest all of the people who work at high levels all have a good level of compassion for fellow Humans.
But that doesn't stop the machine itself from lowering standards in countries where they can get away with it, to the extent of harming thousands of people, polluting the environment, destroying their lives and covering it up.

I don't believe one person signed a memo stating that unacceptable chemicals could be continuously pumped into the local water supply and left to harm thousands. But it happened nonetheless because the machines primary goal, regardless of the many who work within it, is to make some people wealthier.

When you look at the connections between those in positions of power, and their private involvement in questionable corporate machines, you have to come to the one conclusion that decisions are made either by the seen government or the supposed one behind it to benefit these investments.

A person in a position of power is not likely to support a decision that will adversely affect their personal investments, and those of their family and friends, however important those decisions are for many millions of others.

This is where it becomes clear that people in power are directly controlled by big business.
If this is what is called the NWO, then it is correct. But the idea of a NWO stretching back hundreds of years over many generations all with the purposeful design of one day having a distant ancestor ruling the world, that's just not likely. People do not think that far ahead when it has no bearing on their lives or the lives of their children.

How does it change?
There's only one way that I can see it changing.
And that would be to isolate those in trusted positions of power to be isolated from business investment.
No person in a position of power should be permitted to serve on any board of business.
Every person making decisions for the masses should be denied the right to invest time or money in any corporate entities for the duration of their term. Upon taking any public office they should be required to relinquish any and all personal business investments.
They are being paid by the people, so their finances should be open to investigation and continuous monitoring by those paying them.

What would this do?
It would dramatically improve the chances of those in such positions making decisions based on what is right for their country and people rather than what is right for their wallet.
It would ensure that business leaders are kept away from affecting decisions made over their actions.
It would destroy any internal or "hidden" government from the ground up.
It would mean that you are hiring a man or woman who actually has an ambition to further their country rather than their own finances, they actually want to serve their people. This would mean that they have a passion for their country, it's less selfish.

That would be a start to changing the way governments work.

.....

Very funny!


"But bellieve me" when BO leaves office there will be half a million Americans that will really (as you say) "hope he crawls back, etc", oh my! What goes around comes around!

This guy (BO) isn't going to save the country or the world any more than GW or the last 10 presidents did!

Nor will he pay your mortgage, lower your taxes, lower your energy bill, or reverse the financial crisis.


But as they say here in Alaska, there's always HOPE(a town down the road)! And then there's GIRDWOOD (the neighboring town).

Exactly we have to wait and see.
I'm not that ignorant to think he will solve all Americas and the worlds ills but he makes people feel good and that’s a good start that plus he has a good head on his shoulders.
But this does show the true strength of this Republic we can stop and turn on a dime and do 180 when we need to.

America was the leader of the free world whether people liked that or not. We had become a militant bully. That is not the America I want for my children.

Yes the US will still flex it's milittary muscle but when needed not to fill some bankers coffers

That's one of the strength of this Republic. For the longest time I thought we had lost that.
This is sure no socialism.
Thank God another peaceful transfer of power.

The fact that he is half African American has clouded many views of people. Some only voted for him because of his heritage, others voted against him for the same reason. I personally voted for him because of what he stands for. Now lets see if he is able to honor the wide changes he proposed. Only then will we know for sure if we made the right choice.





Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.



We are proving it

Seeing as it is totally unconstitutional for Barry to be sworn in as President, with him being a citizen of Kenya and not a naturally born U.S. citizen, does that mean he is not bound to protect the Constitution during his regime, as a Constitutionally legal President would be?

Should prove to be a monumentous day. I hope everyone dresses warm! Wonder if he will walk part of the parade?

A few 9/11 theories got me wondering. Is it possible that Obama was already sworn in and a hologram or body double will be doing the speech today? Or possibly the media showing pre-recorded videos of digitally inserted crowds cheering on the real Obama in a previously recorded inauguration? Obviously i have no evidence of most of that but as far as the body double goes that is very possible.

Time to break the fairy tail land you all live in.

I predict an assassination. I don't wish death on the guy .. i'm not racist.

I don't like him politically. I'm sure hes a nice guy outside of the political spectrum, but that's my opinion.

And if he doesn't, good for him. I can't wait to see him screw up and fumble the ball.
