the new president

I think it is about time we had a black president. Now I've said it. Now, it's true. We actually have elected the better man, and yes, I can say "we" because I voted, and I voted for Obama.

There are people who have been so brainwashed by prejudice, and by religious zealots that I have heard rumors that he will start killing jews, and other outrageous claims. I don't understand where these rumors get that foothold. Oh, I understand where they come from, all right, from an eyes-open attempt to deceive and mislead people so that they can be manipulated. I may not like politicians much in general, but I wouldn't believe for a minute in the country of the USA, today, we would elect anyone who had holocaust or genocide on their personal agenda. It is neither socially acceptable, nor politically correct, and politicians, if they want to stay in office, must pay attention to those things.

Anyway, I got new glasses last evening, and my eyes are still adjusting to them, so I'm headachy and tired, and ready to head to bed. Congratulations, America! One small step for man, one giant leap for America.

Congratulations America indeed!

And yay for you -- new glasses are great, although I do know they'll do you in for a while. Be gentle with yourself.

I voted Obama. With everything going on, I jumped through hoops to get my absentee ballot in to make sure that my voice would be heard.

For many reasons I felt he was more than just the better man for the job. It's not because he's a democrat, it was not because he would be the first black president, it was because, he knows his own weaknesses and because I read through a great deal of his plans and for the first time in a long time I felt hope for this County.

I understand that he may have big plans, but in reality Congress has to agree for anything to really change, but hopefully everyone will learn to play nice in the sand box, and change will truly come.
