      I remember the "Don't taze me, bro" incident at UF and John Kerry just kept on talking as if nothing unusual were happening in the room, while a student was being attacked via electrocution by UF's finest. That struck me as being a bit odd.

      I voted for Kerry and attended his rallies in Orlando:

      I also respect his military record.

      All in all, at the end of the day, I hope Mr. Obama listens to his heart. I believe that he will. Everyone is trying to tell Mr. Obama what to do, and "how to hold the mop", but I believe the man knows what's best inside, and I have faith that he will do what is right in Afghanistan.

      One more thing, after watching Obama's War on PBS, I am certain that if there needs to be an increase in troops, it should be an increase in translators for the military because it seems the ones they have on the ground in the Jalrez Valley are too scarce for the military to be effective in winning over the trust of the people.

      I like seeing these two work together. I wish POTUS all the luck in the world. I think Kerry's a good man that caught a bad break.

      Dear Mr President

      I still have not seen John Kerry's MySpace.com Account at
      The MySpace 2.0 Entry Point

      Is he not human?
      What has he done to help and support the Vice President of MySpace.com Alberto Kang

      The way of the world...

      Some profit financially (or derive other personal benefits) from activities which do harm to others.

      When will people stop hurting each other?

      I've noticed Kerry's not wearing a flag pin.

      Grown-ups? Look at this grown-up in the White House...Valerie Jarrett slumlord....In 5 years she was the manager of Grove Parc and didn't do one thing to help these poor people. What did she do with the tax payers money given to improve Grove Parc??

      Kissing George Soros sorry a** Valerie Jarrett, Anita Dunn, Obama and just about anyone in this administration

      Soros: Republic Enemy #1 Jim O'Neill - “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States.” --George Soros

      “George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” --Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson

      ...What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be a world class philosopher, despises capitalism, and just loves social engineering.

      ...A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com. This is their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all…who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of…George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day stop preying upon the world’s poor…that justice will be served.”

      György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of Esperanto—a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.

      Love this pic! Though Obama's popularity has slipped recently, I'm still proud to say that I voted for him. Maybe he's not doing everything I'd like to see him do, but he's a vast improvement over what we had in the White House for 8 years before him! As for Kerry, I've always liked the man, and feel that he was royally screwed out of being President in 2004.
