Please know: I am black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul's name as my choice for president.Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a black president to love the ideal of America ..I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is nosmile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumphin my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have todeny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival - all that I know about the history of the United States ofAmerica, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I knowabout Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the"change" that Obama asserts has come to America . Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that blacks are permitted toplay the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared"progressive" whites who voted for him because he doesn't look like them. Iwould have to wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration - political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. I would have to believe that "fairness" is the equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that man who asks me to "go forward in a new spirit ofservice, in a new service of sacrifice" is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the"bottom up," and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth. Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting "Yes We Can!" Finally, I would have to wipe allmemory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists,editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead -and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to theirassumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentalitythat they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a black man to the office of the president of the United States , the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over -and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happymen. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a black person. So,toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America .. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton , Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to - Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson's Great Society.But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine - what little there is left - for the chance to feel good. There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.
I can't add anything more. I can, however, hope that the Messiah shine dims quickly, and Amercians can see what an empty suit of empty promises they've purchased.

Our enemies don't want to get along, they want to replace America as a world power. The test is coming, as the Biden 'Gaffe-O-Matic' said during the campaign(apparently his genius wife is afflicted similarly). The wingnut Left won't approve of any move by BO to protect America or her interests. U.S workers will have to compete with third world illegal immigrants for table scraps, then reality will set in.
When the right to secret balloting is suspended to force non-union laborers into these Tony Soprano run rackets, reality will set in.
When cap and trade measures are implemented, coupled with uncontrolled inflation due to Government spending, reality will set in.
When Joe Six-Pack has to pay 800 dollar per month electric bills for 'green' energy, and 250 bucks to fill up his pick-up truck, then I'm confident the fantasy of'hope' will be crushed by living with the burden of a government run economy.
When the elderly are cut loose from a rationed healthcare system (socializedmedicine), and all resources going only to the young, reality will set in. Yes, my elderly friends, 'Soylent Green' could become your future. The socialists don't want you to live, but to die to make room and reduce pollution.
BOs balloon is so high, it'll at least be interesting how long the 'hope'rhetoric keeps it aloft. How long can the Independents and Moderates drink their own bath water ? How long can RINO Repubs drink the Kool-Aid? Americans are impatient people.
Americans want the economy improved. They don't want Gays in the military,Gay marriage, unfettered abortion, illegal alien amnesty, terrorist attacks on American soil.

Yasser Arafat, (who was born Egyptian, his father was born in Gaza, but his heritage on his fathers side was Egyptian), was nothing but a proxy agent for Arab states who wanted to continue the war with Israel. Hamas and Hezbollah are proxy agents. Arab states would have no reason to finance these terrorist organizations if their purpose were to discontinue attacks against Israel. They can't stop, or they'd otherwise loose their chartered purpose and the associated funding (by the sponsoring Arab states).
Israel must destroy both of these terrorist organizations, because neither Hamas or Hezbollah will make peace at any price with Israel. The purpose of Hama'sis to destroy Israel, and they care little about establishing a separate Palestinian State (that would exist in the shadow of Israel). Anyone with common sense understands this problem.May Israel's victory be swift and sure, and her enemies quickly dispatched to the nether regions of eternity.

However, the liberal media's claim of Israeli disproportional attacks against Gaza is absolute bullshit. There is no other word that fits.
As President Wilson once claimed, there can be no peace without victory. Someone has to win, and in that circumstance, I prefer it not be the terrorists. Israel is on our side. They're on our team, and we need to remember that even if the liberal media is confused. As Micheal Savage often says, "liberalism is a mental disorder". Liberals would put their own nation's best interest aside for their disgusting ideology.
Such is the symptom in California, where the bankrupt State Legislature would rather cut programs that affect legal residents than illegal aliens. How does one explain that kind of response other than a mental disorder? How is it possible that liberals are more concerned with Gitmo prisoners than showing any compassion for nearly 3000 Americans (and their survivors) that were incinerated in the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and on Flight 93. Even in the horror of 9-11, the liberals blame U.S. policy creating the conditions for that terrorist attack on civilian targets. Some even blame the U.S. Government for launching the attack themselves. It is insanity, there is no other explanation. Their is nothing more toxic and dangerous than liberal thinking. They create messes that the 'grownups' must clean up.
Somewhere, somehow, the sane people of America are going to have to get back in charge. If we don't, the America we grew up in will disappear forever.
