31. Sorry for the mid morning paranoia. (Didn't mean to distract my own thread.)
Edited on Thu Sep-08-11 06:17 PM by Fly by night
But these new pop-up one-line ads in the OPs, evidently programmed to respond to the OP topic, are a bit weird. Particularly when the ones assigned to my OP were an ad to go to work for Homeland Security and the one encouraging folks to check peoples' arrest records. I was glad to see the arrest one drop off the OP when I returned this afternoon. But it did creep me out a bit this morning.

By this afternoon, it had served to remind me quite vividly of the world we now live in, what's happening at this moment and what's possible (for good or bad) in the very, very near future. I do believe this is a critical time.

I also believe that the person I supported for President in 2008, Barack Obama, is a person who is galaxies better both intellectually and ethically than his predecessor or the flying monkeys being proffered for 2012. I want to be able to support President Obama with all my heart and soul in 2012. To do that, he has to be at least one drop more than half the leader he promised us he'd be. Obviously, I think he has a ways to go. But his opportunities aren't diminishing to show us the man and the leader we know he is and can be.

For those of you who are confused about the loyalties of the critics here, this critic wants our party's principles and our collective intellectual, moral and social foundations to influence and be embodied in our leader.

Turn this ship around, Mr. President. There is an iceberg straight ahead ... and you are at the helm.
