Sadly, I had to lower my grandiose stature in order to exchange barbs with the likes of you and your clan. Or is it klan?

Thanks, I will be forewarned before our next encounter. Hope to catch you when you return from your ego trip. Your bus to Sillyville is just now pulling into the station.
Glad to see you packed light in the logic department.

I think the choice was an obvious one.


True haha.

But that is a problem - the choice between the lesser evil of Obama, and the extreme evil of Palin.

Oh but i do.

I may be in West Europe, but i am very pro-advocate of President Obamas' administration.

I was flamed by some narrowband idiot when i dared say i think he's a great man.

But being very globalist in my most fundamental philosophies as much as also socialist.

It is very much my business, as too, every comrade in England and nations of Europe.

A great man in my view, more power to him and he's got all the positive energy spare.

I don't like what some are doing to our Prime Minister either.

Some will always forget leaders are people with feelings as well.

Socialist leaders are trying their best for the common good of the many, they are not an enemy and all people do is shift everything into a confused conspiracy encompassing every political spectra and all politicians.

Things do need to change, we all need to be more content with less, materialist egocentrism is pernicious dangerous to society and personally.

Socialists are the good guys, next will be a Tory government elected by an electorate giving into assurance of fast improvement over long term stability in England giving the same negative elements of the Bush regime a power base here, creating an economic upsurge which only defers the current status quo and leading the global economy into a worse problem in 5-10 years or so, factoring.

I hope England doesn't sleepwalk into a right wing control in the global government, i really do.

As for all the negative energy!

Look at how people like me and native Shaman view t and what it can do to collective conscience and even the energy of our planet when it rises in populations of millions into billions.

People should try and be more positive in general, i know it can be hard but people get trenched in to negative output, we need to wake up.

President Obama is a good man, of that i could not be more sure.

Paxus.

Some of you liberals take a very narrow view of conservatives, I personally see religion as nothing more than a tool to control the masses. Abortion? The government is not here to place morals on anything, that philosophical debate is played out because no one should try and force their morality on anyone else. Everyone has seen how apologetic he was on his middle east "tour". Sadly he ignored true history in favor of his P.C. version. Who did the U.S.M.C. cut it's teeth on? Tripoli ring any bells. You cannot negotiate with anyone without both sides being willing to compromise! Any perceived weakness will be exploited by the other side. So let me get this straight the bad united states is sorry and won't you pretty please talk with us. A leader needs to come across to others as having a back bone. Hell Obama has already broke contracts made by the banking industry for good or for ill. So how does a disregard for legally binding contracts help? Would you want to do buisness with some one who would break a contract because they didn't like it?

It appears that you have no idea of whats going on.

1.obama nationalized banks

2.obama nationalized General Motors

3.obama nationalized Health Care

And if you pay attention to whats going on then it would appear obvoius that all obama wants is control.

This is real life problems and wishing for "Superman Obama" to come and save you isn't going to work.

You can sit there and pretend that everything is going to get better or you can wake up.

You Choose.

So very true. I admire the audacity of your confession.

Don't hold your breath. Your Dear Leader will bankrupt entire country sooner.



Let's see them not invest a cent in science, technology and education -where would that get us? These red state right wing freaks want to turn the entire country into a dilapidated trailer park with several key mega church nodes that control it all. The list goes on.


With right wing freaks you still have a choice where to live. If we let left wing nuts like yourself run free - we all would have to live in a giant concentration camp.
Toilet paper rationing, anyone?



They hate and they have ZERO answers or solutions.


Exact definition of liberals. Fantasies do not count as answers or solutions.



They 'know it all' but can't do anything other than bitch & moan about Obama.


Be careful. If action comes - you are not going to like it.
You can tease a lion only for so long...



Obama moves forward with a mix of solid solutions...


Thought up on the crapper...



...and educated gambles..


With our lives.



It takes balls of steel to do it...


No, the head of wood.

Sitting here taking a break from the road on the way to Kent Washington, near the small town of Ellensburg, an absolutely stunningly beautiful place and a perfect day it would be very easy to simply agree that we should give Obama a break.

But!

He had his break, he exploited it to the fullest and he is on course to destroy our economy, and rebuild a fascist/socialist system in its place.

You can give him a break if you like, but he could care less, the people were no longer relevant to him from the moment he was elected. He pushed forward with his massive spending and reform agenda from day one.

The break we need to give him is to the unemployment lines, where he can spend hours waiting for an opportunity to claim his unemployment benefits, along with the millions that are having to do this, and millions more that will face unemployment because of his plans he has pushed through as president.

I truly hate to be rude here, but this is one of the most moronic statements I have ever heard. You do realize there are countries/people that want to destroy the US and what she stands for. Without our weapons technology, we are only a day or two from speaking Russian or Chinese.

You already have an over abundance of everything you need, use up everything first before putting more money into it.

Everyone these days has to turn up their nose at anything that isn't tomorrows technology.

If it was brand new yesterday, it will be dropped for what might come out for tomorrow....it is sensless.

I think Obamma is doing things a lot of you just can't understand, because you haven't been there.

I for example grew up dirt poor on the weekdays at my moms house, and then super rich on the weekends at my dads house.

Obamma has sense that a lot of the "middle class" which is 100000000 times better off than the rest of the world still, dosen't have.

If for example, I really need to buy a new car, I will cut out christmas presents this year and get all just christmas cards, because the car is more important than "being the hero for one day on christmas this year".... some people will rage at me because I never bought any christmas presents, (which will be forgotten about in 10 minute half the time anyways) but you won't see them complaining when they need a ride somewhere in the car I bough instead.

I hope this makes some sense.

my problem with obama is he has no backbone. maybe he doesn't have a choice, but he's definitely not delivering the change he promised.

let me give a real life example.....

It truly is my intention to keep my son and I safe from my ex.....and I have and will do everything in my power to accomplish this. It was a promise I made, HOPING I could just go in and breeze throiugh some papers and presto! Done!

things aren't that simple.

My ex does drugs, and his friends are big time drug dealers who just got let out of a few years of jailtime in the states. He knows BAD BAD people...

I never knew he did drugs, and wouldn't even be his AQUANTENCE if had known...

Anyhoo, back on track.

We sold one of our houses last year, and he took the entire 87,000 profit for himself, and then went around town bragging about how he has 87k and would love to get rid of me.....well, it wasn't "officially' putting a bounty or hit on my head, but I ended up with every druggy, cracky, and even a couple of jelouse phyco other single mothers after me. I had them attacking me in public, in front of an entire ferry line up, all over the place blah, blah, blah, I could get into it for hours, ended up in a safe house for a while...

Meanwhile we go to court. He has his mother, uncle, and 10 druggies and drunks on his side all saying whatever he wants them to.

My side, well, no one, my 2 key witnesse are still living in my house (with my ex taken up camp there) and terrified to get it worse than me, or at the least get their things thrown out on the lawn...

Were does that leave me? fighting against a whole pile of crap on my OWN.

FOR NOW only, I had setteld for split custody, but fortunatly, as I predicted, he moved out of town as soon as the case was over, as it was all just another ploy to try and controll me, not about him actually wanting to take responsibility etc....I have my son full time, just not on paper yet.

In the meantime, my ex spent the entire 87k and is loosing his grip on the people he tempted to speak against me, and they are some of them admitting they were wrong etc and now would like to go against HIM and admit the truth instead etc...

It is all a tangled mess, I have to be very careful and prudent, but eventually things should turn around and the truth should all come out, but it has been a bit by bit proccess because of saftey etc....

If I have had my life threatened and been lied about and slandered, just little me a single mom, you can imagine what kind of hoops and loops he must have to be crafting around......
Can you see my point?

Obama has plenty of choices, but will he exercise any of them for the good of this country? The answer, so far, seems to be no.

And with all the issues going on in the U.S. right now, isn't jetting off to Denmark to try and get the Olympics for your hometown a little like Nero fiddling while Rome burned?

So where are all the jobs fixing our infrastructure? Actually he had nothing to do with extending unemployment that was congress, Oh yea he's paying back some favors by trying to get the olympics held in Chicago. Less and less is said about Iraq since the Iraqi's are starting to run their country, but now Afghanastan is more than likely going to get more troops. The transparency issue still is not being dealt with Sen. Rangel comes to mind.
