    President Barack Obama views the Emancipation Proclamation with a small group of African American seniors, their grandchildren and some children from the Washington, D.C. area, in the Oval Office, Jan. 18, 2010. This copy of the Emancipation Proclamation, which is on loan from the Smithsonian Museum of American History, was hung on the wall of the Oval Office today and will be exhibited for six months, before being moved to the Lincoln Bedroom where the original Proclamation was signed by Abraham Lincoln on Jan. 1, 1863.

      Upset for the Ages?


      croakley, like jobama, is bad for America.

      ears stumping/stuttering for croakley and bad-mouthing Scott Brown, a man that he, admittedly, does not know:

      A note to the POTUS: Massachusetts is going to tell you what they think about you today.

      A note to libs: You know Scott Brown is a good man when you have this poor sport of a sports commentator railing against him on mslsd:


      A note to keith olbermann: you're a dumb-shit liar and i love it. Thank God for Youtube...how else could we marvel at your foul-foot-in-mouth snippets? (It's not as though anyone watches mslsd.)

      Good job Pete. Great expression by the President as he speaks about the Proclamation, to all the guests invited. Good eye !!!

      Actually Obama is opening up a very large gap in this country and is determined to divide Americans with his Progressive Liberal agendas.

      Most Americans black or white do not want progressive ideas pushed onto them.

      Awesome document on display, no doubt.

      Here's something for all of the eurotards and America-haters who love bashing this great nation:


      53 Brown, 46 croakley, 66% reporting.
      "i love you..and i miss you"

      Brown wins.


      The people have spoken.

      Wake up, barry and fellow libs.

      Despite the economy, the wars, and the multitude of problems in America, it is truly a great time to be here.

      I believe that the usual lib-tards are having a difficult time posting here with their sappy, pro-barry cackle. It's understandable, but rest assured: time heals all wounds.

      God has a plan. Your current humiliation in MA is all for the best. Further, this supposed health care insurance "reform" was nothing of the kind. Derailing this whacky bill (whatever it was to become) will actually help you libs come November. You are still going to lose seats, but not as many if your politicians come around.

      On the other hand, if congress gets "tricky" and/or "nutty" on us, trying to ram something through, you libs will pay dearly.

      Per Jeffrey H. Anderson:
      "Obamacare could hardly have suffered a clearer or more crushing defeat. The only question left for congressional Democrats is whether they want to admit defeat now, or admit defeat in November. As the Massachusetts election vividly demonstrated, either the Democrats can cast votes against Obamacare, or the American people can do so."

      Aloha Pete, you always take such fantastic photographs
      of our President. I wonder if I am clever enough to keep
      a certain troll, (above) distracted and quiet for awhile.
      My guess, "No."
      Enjoy the video, and the guns are not real, too bad.
      I can just pretend...... I love my Guitar Hero though. :)

      Aloha from Hawaii Pete,

      Not going anywhere with you Mr. Troll.
      Take a trip to Hawaii and let us spread the
      Aloha Spirit in which our President embodies.

      You need a vacation permanently................... *kaboom*

      My condolences to the White House at not winning the senator seat in Massasuchetts today.

      And my congratulations on the anniversary of One Year Presidency.
      The photo cover of "The Independent" of Barack Obama and Michelle Obama performing the oath in Wahington on Jan. 20 2009 has ever since been framed in my living room.

      In my vision, it is not easy for people, for citizens, to understand messianic people. Simply because the latter don't come in great numbers.

      We trust you, we support you, sir Obama.

      We wish you inspiration, patience and courage in the second year of your presidency.

      Yours sincerely,

      Stefaan H. S.

      Flickr Community Guidelines
      Flickr accounts are intended for personal use, for our members to share photos and video that they themselves have created.
      The following Community Guidelines are here to help you understand what it means to be a member of Flickr. Don't forget that your use of Flickr is subject to these Guidelines and our Terms of Use.

      What not to do
      Here’s the deal: In most circumstances, we like to give second chances, so we’ll send you a warning if you step across any of the lines listed below. Subsequent violations can result in account termination without warning.

      This includes other people's photos, video and/or stuff you've collected from around the Internet. Accounts that consist primarily of such collections may be terminated at any time.

      Take the opportunity to filter your content responsibly. If you would hesitate to show your photos or videos to a child, your mum, or Uncle Bob, that means it needs to be filtered. So, ask yourself that question as you upload your content and moderate accordingly. If you don’t, it’s likely that one of two things will happen. Your account will be reviewed then either moderated or terminated by Flickr staff.

      Flickr is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we’ll send you a warning or terminate your account.

      You may be tempted to post an entry on your photostream or in our public forum about what's happening, but that's not the best way to resolve a possible copyright problem. We don't encourage singling out individuals like this on Flickr.
      In Conclusion
      We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the community has the experience they want. It’s important that you understand the importance of moderating your content responsibly. If you don't feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe Flickr isn't for you.

      If you ever have any questions or comments, we'd love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop us a line through Help by Email.


      Think before you respond... I have not directed this at any ONE .
      If you feel it applies to you, then perhaps it is true. and it does. There for responding to it is an admission of guilt.
