Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

The sound of Soulsville, U.S.A., a music that, at its core, is about the pain of being alone, the power of human connection and the importance of treating each other right," he continued. "After all, this is the music that asked us to try a little tenderness. It's the music that put 'Mr. Big Stuff' in his place. And it's the music that challenged us to accept new ways of thinking with four timeless words:'Can you dig it?'"

Performers included Sam Moore of the duo Sam and Dave and American Idol Season 11 finalist Joshua Ledet taking on "Soul Man," and Justin Timberlake and Cropper joining together for a rendition of Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) the Dock of the Bay." Alabama Shakes, Ben Harper, Cyndi Lauper, Charlie Musselwhite, Mavis Staples, Queen Latifah and William Bell also performed, with Latifah serving as host and Jones as bandleader. Al Green was set to perform but withdrew at the last minute after suffering a back injury

Bowing to pressure from students, Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday stepped down as commencement speaker at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Baltimore Sun reported.
In a letter sent to Dr. Paul B. Rothman, dean of the medical school, Carson said his withdrawal from the ceremony "would be in the best interest of the students."
"Given all the national media surrounding my statements as to my belief in traditional marriage, I believe it would be in the best interest of the students for me to voluntarily withdraw as your commencement speaker this year," Carson, the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, wrote. He will also step down as the speaker for the diploma ceremony at the university's school of education.
Anti-gay remarks made recently by Carson during an appearance on Fox News sparked a furor among Johns Hopkins students, who circulated a petition to have the renowned neurosurgeon replaced as commencement speaker.
"Marriage is between a man and a woman," Carson told Fox's Sean Hannity during the appearance. "No group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality, it doesn't matter what they are — they don't get to change the definition."
Before making his decision official, Carson said last month that he was prepared to honor the wishes of those students and step down as graduation speaker. Last week, he apologized for those remarks after being rebuked by Rothman.

Can't spark a debate, now can we?

Dr. Carson might just have offered the students some new insight as to why half of the country also stands against gay marriage including the president, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton before they started conning gays for their vote too.

I don't care for statistics or links from so called experts, I see
to much of that on Topix.
I would much rather here what you or any other poster on here opinion are, I place far more value in that then any statistics.
You are trying to place a sence of fairness into the way things
work.....big mistake.
Life is not easy by any means....some have it better then others
for sure about that.
But when we look to the Federal government for the answers
to such complex problems is when things get all screwed up even
worse.
From what I See all over your post....is a sense of fairness
is needed a sense a life equality is needed....so its only
natural to look to the government to provide this.
And guess what? the government is more then willing to try and do so.....in the form of wage and price controls welfare the tax code
social programs and social engineering.
Guess what...it does not work....these programs never take into
account basic free market capitalism and the principle needed to apply them and they never take into account basic human nature
when given the choice to get a free hand out rather then working
hard for what is needed.
Its not my job or your job to decide what job has more value what
jobs should pay.....that is to be decided by the market place.
When we do that....balance will be found and maintained.
Its when we depend on the MARKET (YOU AND ME) And start to reject
answers from the government...we will then have more then enough
jobs for those who will work hard to take them and keep them.
Your exercise for today, carol, is to find ALL the honkers in here, and then CORRECT them!

Hahahahahahahahahaha HA!

Who cares anyway? Janes whole existence in life is stalking me, I give her a reason for living. Did you know she was Calvin Coolidges secretary? Her job was counting pencils, poor old girl. Do you think she can still walk?
Can't help you with your problem with Jane. I have my own version of Jane. At least Jane doesn't post under your name and location.
You should thank your lucky stars for that.

Hey choco taco, I bet you like it hard and from behind, right through the overalls. Don't ask me how I know, I just CAN! I'm a woman, and a mighty retarded one. My mom went to Jesus in the same crash where I got my massive head injuries. Yep, that's right -- just like you, I got a double whammy -- born slow (but straight, thank God), and with those funny little corn teeth all squeezed into a mouth that's way too little for them. I grew up on the side of the mountain that gets no sun, so I got no Vitamin D either. We ate lint on a good day. Lots of stuff, but I don't want to be unduly prolix (whoops, I don't really talk like that!).
So, besides being born retarded, what happened to you to make you as proudly stupid as I am? Did you get clocked with a pipe wrench in the service? Generally, I makes loads of spelling honkers in every other sentence, but today I seem to be possessed. I agree with everything you said about those evil homosexuals, by the way. Why should they get to take all the good looking, creative, well muscled men, while us girls (if we're lucky) get to blow pipe fitters and truckers.
Like so many things in this great, great country, it's just not fair!
Not even close to the truth...Idiot!!

President Obama, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Former President Clinton all decided within the same month to con gays for their votes.

Unless they all 3 sat down together and did some major soul searching on the issue of gay marriage after all 3 were adamantly opposed to it just one month earlier.

Nah...that's even funny.

Ciou.

North Korean Missile Test Delayed by Windows 8

Posted by Andy Borowitz


PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—North Korea’s official news agency announced today that the military’s planned missile test had been put on hold because of “problems with Windows 8.”

Intelligence analysts said that the announcement gave rare insight into the inner workings of North Korea’s missile program, which until last year had been running on Windows 95.


The announcement from the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) did not indicate a new scheduled time for a missile test, saying only that it was “working with Windows 8 support to resolve the issue.”

In the words of one intelligence analyst,“That means the test been delayed indefinitely.”

A source close to the North Korean regime reported that Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is furious about the Windows 8 problems and is considering a number of options, including declaring war on Microsoft.
