Having lived through the election cycle with campaigns and media repeatedly declaring that the election shouldn't and couldn't be about race when there were so many important issues, I had to laugh out loud when the morning after the election results came in, the Rocky Mountain News first 12 pages were focussed on the historic event of electing America's first black president. Never ceases to amaze....

According to you and FTL and Drewprof I am not even sentient. So probably self un-awarenessivity is probably a possibility. But that is ok because I get my marching orders from God.

MR. GOP: “We’re RIGHT!”

VMG: “Yeah, but what about…”

MR. GOP: “WE’RE RIGHT!”

VMG: “Look, I’m not saying you’re wrong, it’s just that…”

MR. GOP: “Hey, what’s your problem? I told you, we’re right. Besides, whatyagonnado–vote for a Democrat? Huh? A liberal? You going to vote for a liberal, a liberal Democrat? A liberal Democrat who isn’t a Republican? Is that what you’re going to do? I don’t think so. So here–take your cold slice of Jesus, side of grumpy, bowl of corruption, and chunk of incompetence and go sit in the corner and eat it. And either like it or keep your mouth shut, we’ve got a government to run.”

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Wow.
well remember this the next time someone tries to convince you that racism doesn't exist.

unfortunately these words are usually connected to subtle economic and social racism and the same person will argue in person that there not racist!

I cannot believe you just said that. Wow, you ungrateful soab. You are concerned about our "image"? This country has rescued, rebuilt, supported, destroyed and then rebuilt 1/2 of the world. When a hurricane wipes out a nation our donations rebuild it. When a nation asks for help we are there. When someone cannot defend themselves we defend them. The mention of our name strikes fear in the heart of the evil and hope in the hearts of the oppressed. You are ashamed of our country? Then get the fuck out.

^^^ I suppose you are proud of torture, warrantless surveillance, and corruption of justice as well?
