In my hometown of Katy, Tx, which is rather “white”, there were lots of letters to the editor and the Katy Ind. School District to not show the President’s speech at all.
Yeah, I’ll admit it, I voted for President Obama, but he is quickly becoming just another Washington turd in my eyes but to resist having the president tell your kids why he feels education is so important? WTF!?!
I am disgusted to the point of nausea of what I read coming from some of the citizens in Katy, Tx.
There was this little gem from Resident who compares the president to a nazi:

“Didn’t Hitler start out his conquest by directly trying to influence children by speaking to them in their classrooms? “
Then there was this genius who said: Continue reading

Well, The Deistette had conceded that she wasn’t going to be able to vote in one of the most historic elections our country has ever seen.
When she moved down here on the weekend that the hurricane hit, we were dealing with so much but one afternoon in late, late September I had the day off and we went went to the DMV to get her new Texas driver’s license. She registered to vote at the same time.
Well, she’s been waiting and waiting and waiting for her voter card and nothing. We looked on a website to see if the County Clerk had her listed on the rolls and which polling station she’d vote. Nothin.
But on my way home, I checked the mail and tah dahhh!!!… her card was there.
She was quite happy. And I think I know how she voted.
What can i say… that’s my girl!
My sister sent me an email with an article written by Dr Jack Wheeler recently. Some of the highlights of which are below.
The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No résumé, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.
He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively
It goes on with some stuff essentially saying that the movement supporting Senator Obama is a true religious cult, that his Arabic ancestors were slave owners, and that he is a neophyte. It ends with:
… should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.
I am dumbfounded by the article. I am dumbfounded at the angle of argument in his article. And I’m dumbfounded by the notion that any thinking human being, American or other, would give any credence to the juvenile, sophomoric sputterings written by Dr Wheeler.
After reading his academic and professional achievements, I was expecting some worthy or enlightening prose on the democratic nominee. Instead what I got was the ramblings of a hate filled, theocracy-wanting racist. Continue reading
This is kinda cool. The folks over at MSNBC.com have placed a set of brackets lining up the top contenders for the VP position for the blue and red side of the aisles.
Check it out. Pretty informative and you get to make your own pics and see how other people choose who will win each bracket.
I think i like this better than March Madness.
I just now had the chance to listen to his speech.
It’s quite moving…. eloquent…. and right on target.
I love his method of condemning the sin and not the sinner regarding his pastor.
If you haven’t seen it, give 30 minutes of your time and hear will undoubtedly be one that makes the history books.

Senator Obama is scheduled to deliver this morning what some are calling the most important speech of his political career to date. Perhaps he should take some tips from Tracy Morgan.
“it’s a little complicated but basically it’s this…”
YouTube took down the video of comedian Tracy Morgan responding to Tina Fey’s quasi endorsement of Sen. Clinton so you’ll have to go the SNL link to watch it.
Some of you who have read my blog before have seen that I’ve referenced Dave Matthews Band a few times.
I’ve been a fan of his band’s music since his “Under the Table and Dreaming” album came out in 1994. Dave’s lyrics are at times simplistic, spiritual, common, unusual, erotic, political or silly. He’s surrounded himself with amazing musicians, specifically bass phenom and prodigy Stephan Lessard and drummer extraordinaire Carter Beuford; which, in doing so, allows the music to be extremely complex.
He has helped with issues regarding the environment, his opinions of religion are similar to that of UUs, and he’s just flat out cool.
But I saw Continue reading
