      This is your president !

      Is anyone out there awake?

      Everyone of voting age should read these two books: Don't buy them, just get them from the library.

      Dreams of My Father:
      Audacity of Hope:

      From Dreams of My Father: "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

      From Dreams of My Father : "I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

      From Dreams of My Father: "There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white."

      From Dreams of My Father: "It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

      From Dreams of My Father: "I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

      And FINALLY .........
      and most scary:

      From Audacity of Hope:
      "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

      We CANNOT have someone with this mentality running our GREAT nation!!
      I don't care whether you are a Democrat , a Republican, a Conservative or a liberal,
      We CANNOT turn ourselves over to this type of character in a President.
      We have really put ourselves in harm's way with this monster in disguise!

      I used to think that the stupidest people on the planet were the French. Now it must be Americans. Look at our country, we elected a person that represents the two entities that are trying to destroy our way of life, communism and Islam. The rest of the world is laughing at us for the fools we must appear to be.

      Hey "powerstationman", as far as i understand, Flickr is a place to discuss photography only! But since you shot that one straight at my forehead, i feel like saying something back to you. In the first place, i think didn't quite got it about what i've said about Obama on my previous post, read it again:

      "I'm not American, but I'm glad to know that the Bush arrogance cycle is over!!!"

      Note i'm not at anybody's side! I don't care who the american president is or if he's doing fine or not!!!

      PLEASE don't answer this back, go shoot some cool photos instead!! Cheers!
