History is Made – Like It or Not, It’s Good

Obama 2008Congratulations are in order for President-Elect Barack Obama

and his historic achievement of being elected the first African-American President of the United States. No matter what your politics or whether you agree with his policies or not, you must admit that history has been made tonight and it’s a good history. It’s good for our country, it’s good for our people, and it’s good for the world to see that freedom and democracy work.

America’s election of the junior senator from Illinois is not only historic in the obvious sense, it is historic in a deep and healing way. This nation has been plagued by racism since it’s inception. We have endured civil wars, riots, inequity, the civil right movement, and countless other challenges, none more felt than by the African-American community. This long lasting and deep seated racism is not only felt in the black communities and urban neighborhoods, it effects all Americans, from the immigrant workers to the most affluent CEOs. It affects how we act with one another, how we speak to each other, and many times it affects us so deeply that these feelings cannot even be uttered in public. Barack Obama’s decisive election win is one step further away from America’s tarnished past, and toward a more united future.

It is my sincerest hope that today’s election has proved to any doubters, white or black, conservative or liberal, that in this land of the free, anyone can accomplish anything no matter what the obsticals, sterotypes or preconceptions.

This is the United States of America and we are stronger when we stand as one nation, under God. We may not agree on many things, but we are all united in the fact that we are Americans and we can stand proud in front of the entire world as a shining example of democracy at it’s best.

In the months and years ahead, I will be sure to voice my opinions when I disagree with Obama and the liberals in Congress as I have always done. It is my hope that he will serve like many past presidents and govern more to the center and do the peoples work, not his parties. I trust that he will live up to his campaign promise to reach across the aisle to bring Americans closer together and work to end the divisiveness in the country. I will give him the benefit of the doubt to fix our economy, but will be watching very closely for any dangerous or civil rights infringing policy making. I will also prepare to elect a Republican president in four years.

However, I am a patriotic American and I will stand with my President against this nation’s enemies at home and abroad. I am proud of our democracy even when “my side” doesn’t win. I am proud that Americans can, and have, looked past skin color (and names) and were able to choose Obama to lead this nation.

It may seem strange but despite my guy losing and am proud to have voted today in this historic election. Most of all tonight I am proud to be an American!

Euro-Trash Endorses Obama then Smears Palin Family At The VMA’s

Russel Brand may be famous in the UK. He will never be famous in the United States!

Claiming to be a representative of the world, this piece of euro-trash asks Americans watching the MTV Music Video Awards to, “Please, elect Barack Obama… On Behalf of the world.” He is literally begging as if it could possibly affect him in some way.

He continues by calling Americans racists if they don’t support Obama, and think America is not ready for a black president (that alone does not make one a racist). Of course, we never hear how racist those people are that will vote for Obama just because he is black. That would be racist, would it?

He even makes a jab at President Bush, calling him a “Retarded cowboy.”

He then goes on to show his political balance by smearing the Palin family in a vile and disgusting manor. Calling the GOP VP nominee a VPILF, he continues by slamming Bristol Palin and her fiancee by suggesting that the GOP is the best form of birth control and exclaims, “Use a condom or become Republican!”

I really don’t expect much from MTV, or artist that use their celebrity (see my post about Oprah) to sway political decision, but this was way over the top.

This guy is not even American! What right does he have to say anything about our government? Especially to millions of teens who were probably watching this show. And who at MTV paid him to say it?

Russell Brand needs to be shipped back over the pond and I hope his goofy hair style catches fire at one of his shows.

Oh and don’t watch MTV…..EVER! And don’t let your kids watch either!

Republican Women, Stop Watching Oprah Winfrey


Oprah Winfrey has just released a statement stating that Gov. Sarah Palin, the republican Vice Presidential nominee, will not appear on the Oprah Winfrey show.

If you’re a republican woman, don’t help Oprah use her celebrity to help Obama. Stop watching her show today, and show her that you do not appreciate her bias. Write to her at Harpo Studios, and tell her if she is going to cover politics that she should cover both sides or you’ll take your advertising dollars elsewhere.

HER STATEMENT: “The item in today’s Drudge Report is categorically untrue. There has been absolutely no discussion about having Sarah Palin on my show. At the beginning of this Presidential campaign when I decided that I was going to take my first public stance in support of a candidate, I made the decision not to use my show as a platform for any of the candidates. I agree that Sarah Palin would be a fantastic interview, and I would love to have her on after the campaign is over.”

Oprah’s statement was in response to a story on the Drudge Report earlier in the day, stating that certain staff at Harpo Studios were in disagreement on whether to book Gov. Palin on the show. Barak Obama was a guest on the Oprah Winfrey show prior to announcing his intention on running for the presidency. Ms. Winfrey has publicly endorsed Obama and actively campaigns with him.

In my opinion, the reason that she claims to not want to use her show as a platform for politics, is that she has already made her choice, he has already made his appearance, and she understands that she would have to give (at least the illusion) of equal time and coverage on her show or she could face backlash from her primarily female audience.

Palin would be a great guest and is an inspiration to all American women regardless of party affiliation. To host a guest as historically significant as the first woman republican nominee for Vice President, Oprah should put aside her party bias and invite Sarah Palin as a guest. To do otherwise, appears racist or at a minimum politically biased, either of which is certain to draw away large numbers of her viewers. If she truly cares about her female audience, she owes it to herself and her audience to book Sarah Palin on her show.

Just for good measure, she should also be allowed to host her close friend Barak again, so as to not appear unfair. Actually, I just don’t want to hear the whining from the left.

Palin Videos

I have been collecting a few videos of Gov. Sarah Palin in action. A few of them show a great deal of insight into how she may perform as McCain’s VP. Let me know what you think and leave a few comments.

Take a look at my VodPod to the left and Enjoy!

 

Why Pick Palin?

McCain/Palin 2008

McCain/Palin 2008

I waited for the media leak (of which there was none to speak of) all night. Well, actually I only waited until about 2:00am. Alas, around 9:00am I catch wind of the first reports of the McCain VP pick and my first reaction is…Who? Palin, Palin the name is vaguely familiar but I can’t place it. Alaska, oh yeah, now I remember. This is that governor that is pushing to drill in ANWR. Now I’m thinking, “so far, so good”.

I had to let it sink in for a while. Why would McCain pick Palin. Virtually unknown outside of her home state until recently, and not a very experienced politician either, I struggled to put it together. Obama likes to say John McCain doesn’t “get it”. Well, on the contrary, I think he not only gets it, but gets it right.Governor Palin is the perfect choice!

Just as Obama chose an experienced Washington insider partly to augment his own lack of experience, McCain is off-setting his significant experience by choosing a running mate unfamiliar with the inner dealings of Washington. Obama missed the boat by not picking Hillary Clinton as his Vice President. She garnered a lot of votes and it would have most certainly built a massive machine to be confronted in November. In addition, the first Black/Female ticket would have diffused any attempt by McCain to do just what he did, choosing a woman as a running mate to siphon off disgruntled Hillary supporters. Perhaps, just perhaps, they will find Sarah Palin a more suitable choice for leadership not only because of her gender, but due to her common sense policies for the American family.A conservative with the bravery to confront unethical and wasteful spending who is able to reach across the aisle to get things done, is also just the type of leader America needs in the White House.

A McCain/Palin ticket seems to have just the right amount of moderate conservatism to win in November. Her age and family life also has a lot of appeal. She is at a stage in life where many Americans find themselves today and will be able to relate. As a father and husband close to 40, I can tell you that her story closely resembles mine and that of many voters, Democrats, Independents, and Republican alike. She understands what it means to raise a family with high moral standards and a good education in today’s society. She knows what it means, with our shrinking paychecks and inflated grocery bills, to have to put $50 in the tank each week, pay for health care, and what the rising cost of goods do to the middle class family. McCain and Palin will put America first. They will work to reduce spending and taxes, reduce our dependence of foreign oil, and ensure government reform, so that American families can reduce the burden they are experiencing from a struggling economy and housing market. As a lifelong NRA member Palin will fight to protect our second amendment rights so we can protect our persons, property, and family. She will work to reform government and upset the status quo in Washinton, placing country first, and cronism out the door.
The McCain/Pladin ticket has the ability to transform american trust in government and the Republican party. I would like to learn more about this “Wow” pick from Alaska. But, so far I like what I’ve learned. Yep, I think John McCain “get’s it”. And I think a McCain/Palin ticket is exactly how he shows it.

Best possible pick McCain could make. The more I find out about her the more there is to like. More on this later.
