Unfortunately, what you witnessed is the support the government needs to create more control laws.
I wish you had been a witness to the pre admisnistration discussions. Obama was cued in on what he can and cannot do to avoid being assasinated.
We all get pissed that his campaign promises are not being delivered but we do have to give a guy a break. His life is on the line and since we are
not a unified country, he must tread very carefully.
By the way, I did not vote for Obama, nor the Palin Project. I do however, support any group or individual that will listen to the ideas that could
lead to postive changes. Problem is, most people want changes that they do not have to be a part of and they listen to the wonderful world of Glenn
Beck, Nancy Grace, and all the others promoting ignorant bliss through drama while avoiding tht nasty concept called education that produces free
My grandmother scolded me once during a dinner, "Just because you don't like the liver I serve you does not give you the right to bite the hand that
feeds you. You can leave the table at any time, young lady. Don't come back unless you are willing to do the cooking and then I can sit on my bum
and either enjoy your meal or tell you everything you did wrong." When that woman dragged me away from the table by my ear and then had the audacity
to put her foot to my rump, I wanted to kil her. I wanted to shoot her dead because she embarrased me in front of the entire family and she did not
take me to McDonalds for the cheeseburger, fries, and soda that I wanted.
Liver and onions tossed down with a glass of water for someone like me? Come on now! Don't I deserve better? Doesn't everyone deserve beter?
Unfortunately, I did not listen to the woman I wanted to kill so bad and 8 years later when I was living on my own I outlawed every recipe she made in
my home in preference for the fast food. In just a few months, I got so sick, I thought I was going to die. I begged my grandma to help me and you
know what she did? That damn liver and onions again tossed down with squash, green beans, and a glass of water! If that was not bad enough, that
woman made me eat some fresh salad greens, raw carrots, and cabbage! Then she made me see a female problem doctor. That dpoctor put these things in
places... OMG! It was torture and humilating all wrapped up in one! If I wasn't so sick, I think I would have killed her.
One week in my grandmother's care, I was back to healthy. My grandmother put up with alot. She could have stopped at any time. My parents kept
telling her to leave me alone so I could find my own way. My aunts and uncles would come along and tell that woman to keep her nose out of private
things that don't concern her.
I am not saying that Obama is as worthy of praise as my grandmother was, but I am saying that if we kill him off now, he might not be able to help us
later when we finally realize that just maybe he was doing to help without explaining. If only the rest of the family and friends would not have been
so loud that I did not hear why liver and onions with a salad, green veges and a huge glass of water was good for me, perhaps I could have asked
directly. Remember? I had my eyes on the forbidden McDonalds, Burger King, and Taco Bell. My grandma said no but my friends and family told me yes!
If only I had asked my grandmother why this and why that instead of taking it for granted that she was out to destroy my life as an excuse to avoid
the conversation. I liked what everyone else was telling me and that excuse made me do the things I did. I might have not got so sick that I had to
beg my grandma to help me if I had only asked the questions that needed to be asked.
Once I got to talking to her, I found out she knew other ways to get iron, vitamins , and minerals. She laughed when she told me that liver wasn't
the only source for what I needed but it was the only one whe had on the menu at the time because it was cheap and easy to get to the table.
Imagine that! If I could have shot my grandma down that day she dragged me from the table, I would have missed out on the most important political
lesson of all. Piss and moan, you get what you get. Ask questions and you just might find out what the president has on the menu is not the only
source of what we need. Killing the someone will not change what we have not learned.
