    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!

    In your profile you say you hate liers, well you are one. Go spread your lies else where, and don't believe everything you get in your email box without proofreading it. Here's what snopes has to say about what you copy and paste so freely

    Congratulations on receiving more than 25,000 views -- that's quite impressive! Now that you've reached this milestone, you might want to consider graduating this photograph from the 'Views: 10000' group to the 'Views: 25,000' group, which can be found here:

    Once again, congratulations and hopefully your photos will receive many more views in the future! Reminder: Photos should only be in one 'Views:xx' group at a time. (This is an automatic message posted to all items in the 'Views: 10000' group that receive more than 25,000 views. There is no need to reply to this message.)

    Great picture of our president! I would like to use your photo for my school assignment. I am in a teacher program and am building a mock website for my class. Here is the link:
    I first emailed your image to my Yahoo email account. I then downloaded it on my computer and uploaded it on my class website. I provide your name and a link to your Flikr page. This is my first time to do this so I don't want to get in trouble. Please let me know if I need to do something else.
  • transplanted mountaineer 1y

    cwnewton99 feel free to use the picture, but that link takes me to an email log in, is there another way for me to see your website?
  • cwnewton99 1y

    Sorry about that...I'm a complete rookie at this. I figured it out. I can share the link with you but need to include your email address. Not to sound creepy but I tried to use your facebook page provided in your Flickr profile but the share function wouldn't allow it. Do you have somewhere else I can send the link to? Maybe I could send it to your FlickrMail? Thanks for working with me. I appreciate it.
