I thought I could just comment on what has been happening to this country, specifically the latest, hottest, “meme” that is going on and making the news circuit and the blogoshpere and the twitterverse, by reminding all of us, once again, the Golden Rule. Yes, indeed, I am referring to the clever, seemingly harmless and indeed “How Christian of you”, appearances of bumper stickers that say:

“Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”

By now I assume most of you know what the hack I am talking about. If you are one of the fortunate ones that have been shielded from such ugliness, here is the article, “Biblical anti-Obama slogan: Use of Psalm 109:8 funny or sinister?” on none other than The Christian Science Monitor. I am also repeating the by-now-old-news-because-our-generation-suffers-from-ADD details here for my children, so they will know, when they look back one day, how FAR indeed we/they have come. Please, let it be overcome by then…

Humbled.

I was surprised that he still maintains the official BarackObama Twitter account (and it IS verified – I doubt anybody would even try to set up a fake celebrity account for this…  Think of how the FBI would get on your behind faster than you could say “Squatter”…)

Afraid to ask: What is the point of HCR without a public option?

September 10, 2009

in imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway, this i believe

I don’t set a lot of rules in the house for my boys.  The Golden Rule, of course.  The “Be true to yourself”, remnants from reading Hermann Hesse in my youth.  And then there is my very own:

Whatever you do, don’t do a half-ass job.

(I know. I am all brevity…)

Sushi for you, Obama-san!

The chef did try very hard to make it non-offensive. A friendly gesture really. Look at the USA flag and the similes!

The New York Post chimp cartoon – Not at all funny no matter how you look at it…

February 18, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

New controversy alert! February is not over yet, and as many of us have held our breath fearfully awaited, the FIRST racist cartoon about our FIRST Black Prez is out! My fellow Americans, once again, you do not disappoint…
So the unfortunate New York Post published this cartoon today and also on its website.

Those who are affected, i.e. those whose salaries are more than 100K a year, are probably not too happy about this, but we are thrilled to hear that the man seeks immediately to rule by example.
“All of you are committed to building a more responsible government… Families are tightening their belts and so [...]

Our President Obama’s Inaugural Speech: simple, sincere, straightfoward. We’ve got a lot of hard choices to make and hard work to do!

January 20, 2009 random

I am back on! (I do suffer from bi-polar disorder so I was probably in a funk earlier today…) But no matter. Here is the 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama’s inaugural speech. It reminded me why I was captivated by this man the first time I heard him speak on TV, and why I believed [...]
