42. Obama remains a master at cementing identity politics.

And his speechifying will remain brilliant.

However what preoccupies many of us is the dagger that has been thrust into the heart of the Middle Class, in terms of the economy. Cat food committee, austerity measures, CPI chained cuts.

Then in the matter of our inherent and inalienable rights, under the Obama Administration, peaceful protesters who have been arrested now must contend with the "Order of Protection." An Orwellian piece of paper that lets you know that if you are arrested for protesting once, you may be serving some 7 years for protesting twice. Not fifteen days, as it was during the Nixon Administration - seven years.

Lawyers who have been handed the "Order of Protection" don't even know what to make of it. In addition to not protesting ever again, the person so served must avoid various unnamed officials, FOREVER, and also must refrain from being near the school where their children attend classes.

How can you avoid people who remain unnamed to you?

But in any event, all hail the Chief Executive. GO USA!
