On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.
We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. (Like singing “Na Na Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Good-bye” when President Bush walked on stage)The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to... (more)
...to stop now. I was shadow boxing in one of the two rings and in between rounds I would sneak peaks over at the television set. The boom-box of rap music was lowered as Obama's words filled the air of the gym. A small crowd formed near the T.V.
Never in my life did I ever care about politics or any sort of presidential inaugurations. I'm by no means a guru at the game. I have my own surrealistic points of view of how things should go, but for most part I make jokes about it. There's some hard-core political fanatics out there and when they open their mouths... I close mine. What ... (more)
Gee, I can imagine Cheney moving heavy boxes. NOT. So the story is he was moving heavy boxes into his new home and strained his back and is now in a wheelchair for the Inauguration. Yeah right. First of all, I believe he was lifting a finger to do anything. Secondly, I believe he must be in a wheelchair so he doesn't have to stand in respect to our new president, that is here to clean up the mess he made.
I hope he realizes that he can stand and pee, as well as stand in respect for our nations choice for a better person to guide and unite this devastated country of ours , thanks... (more)
...count those he’s been gone campaigning for president. What I do know about Obama, which isn’t much because the liberal free press hasn’t done its job investigating Obama like it needs to do, is that Obama sought the advice and counsel of a known domestic terrorist when he got into politics in the first place. He sat in the pew of a church for 20 years of a man who spews racial hatred and other anti-American filth on a regular basis and I know that Obama can’t prove conclusively that he was actually born in Hawaii. Where among any of that do you find that I’m racially... (more)
A 14-year-old girl in Sacramento put an anti-Bush message on her myspace.com page. I guess it showed a picture of our president with a dagger stuck in his outstretched hand, with the words, "Kill Bush" scrawled beneath it. The girl was pissed off by the war in Iraq. She removed the message from her myspace page as soon as she learned that it's a no-no to post such material, but by then it was apparently too late. The Secret Service came by the girl's classroom a week later and aggressively questioned her. They must believe that she's a legitimate terrorist threat. Maybe they suspect that... (more)
San Francisco doesn't welcome dogs. The seagulls and sea lions down at Fisherman's Wharf have more rights. To be honest, the citizens and politicians in this area do everything they can to discourage people from owning dogs in SF. This latest story is just another example that illustrates how anti-pooch this city really is. The Animal Control and Welfare Commission is currently urging the SF Board of Supervisors to adopt legislation that will allow landlords to raise a tenant's rent 5 percent per pet as an incentive for property owners to be more open to welcoming animals into their apartments...

...non-whites pass them by. And here in Los Angeles, where white billionaires sprout like sushi bars, Almost all African-Americans are still forcibly relegated to the ramshackle, infested, dangerous parts of the city, the lowest rungs of the economy and virtual nonparticipation in local power politics. Conditions in L.A. and in America cry out for an African-American superhero who can force America to confront the ugly truth of its greatest-of-crimes against humanity and the vestiges, end the War on Iraq, re-balance the budget after the groaning deficit wrought by the Bush Administration, ...

I usually don’t write about politics. Along with religion, it’s one of the most debated subjects we have as a people. No matter if you’re a democrat or republican, we all have our viewpoints. But, given the political year we’re all about to engage in, I felt it time to express my position of where I see America, as it currently stands. I realize many won’t agree here, but holding back hasn’t ever been my strongest trait.
America has become an extremely divided nation, and angrier. It’s now rich vs. poor, liberal vs. conservative, democrat railing against republican, black more hostile... (more)
