I get offended.

When they say mean hateful things
about the Obama’s.
When they say this proud
family can’t represent the
United States of America
2009 - January 1 - HAPPY NEW YEAR. Yeah!
Are you ready to dispel some of those stereotypes? When they happen to you are you too eager to pass it off to something else, not call it what it is because of your position? Everybody was wrong to believe in the words of negativity mired in dislike of a man simply because of the color of his skin. It’s hard to take when you know its at the bottom of the ‘so called’ issues concerning inability to serve our country. Which is totally ridiculous. when its racism at core of the resistance our new leader has faced from the Senate, Congress.
The lights of a new day is echoed by the depth of those getting an urge to serve their country in time of change. Many want a new lease upon America’s future because of our negative image around the world, Our cry for complete change is heard as we choose a new leader. A new vision. A new way of presenting ourselves to other countries. The day of the lone maverick has come and gone, soon the days will be filled with our goals of finally getting it right for the good of the nation. We must no longer be a country where those in charge totally ignore those of lesser means simply because they can afford to have grandiose feelings of entitlement, of jobs, of housing, of schooling, of their own pursuit of happiness from walking over those unfortunate enough to have wasted their time seeking economic or a cultural change in the first place.
PRAYERS FOR THE FAMILY
Know that when you close your eyes at night you are blessed by those who love and respect the image you’ve presented over these last four years, that we all can believe we all can dream. Again. Know that when we see you, we see all of us. Not the white one, the ‘little brown one’, the black one or yellow one. Just an American. Know that when you are far away doing the best for us we pray for your safe return. Know that your family is our family and we’re truly blessed for having such love in America. Know that when you stand alone, you’re not, as we stand beside you. Around you as an American. Our American. God gave us an American strong enough to say to the world - change. It’s time for a change. It’s our time. Know that when you close your eyes at night we ask the dear Lord to protect and cover you with His blessings from seas to shining seas across the USA. All around the world and into outer space. That’s how much we respect the work you do for US(A) against ALL odds.
Know that when you close your eyes at night you are blessed by those who love and respect the image you’ve presented over these last four years as you show the country that we all can believe. In dreams. Again.
Will history be the storyteller of our greatest orator of all time as director of the course of our heritage going into the 21st Century. Will history correctly tel our Renegades story or change history books with whitewash retelling that puts McCain/Palin in favorable light and give the President several paragraphs on one page as ‘homage’ to Black History Month. Even as he will have to deal with major issues from the previous Administrations legacy of war, recession,bailouts, as debts were piled and promises unkept. Our past leaders continued to rattle our alies through the years as the portrait of entitlement is painted for our enemies. Other countries don’t like the United States of america those days because we’d become a country the felt - that we felt we are better than they. We’re more accomplished than others. More civilized? Is this truth? Or perception our leaders had allowed grow and fester? When an age arrives to herald in social change for diverse country and energize our nation, our world,l with evidence of absolute change from the status quo. We must go with the flow of change, we must paint a portrait of ourselves which compliments not one which breeds contempt. Yet. We paint a portrait and history must thrill in its retelling as our leader directs the course of the 21st Century and a legacy of war is beginning to wane…
America’s deep plunge into a GOP lead recession is seen all over the world and Japan refuses to continue taking our debts. The Big-3 auto industries need a bail out no questions asked. Again! Debts trickle to the everyday man unable to pay a mortgage. College loans. Steel industry vanishing fast as clean coal - men die down below. banks collapse. Freddie Mack and Fanny Mae are busted. Years of compliance and indifference birth leaders unable or unwilling to show compassion for fellow man. Are you ready to serve your country? Are you ready to take a stand? Can you run the machines of - .
"Yes i can !’.
The reply comes and heard around the world. The man asks what he must do. And a voice replied he must quit smoking. Is that all he thinks in response. Well. That’s a fist bump. Done. Pass the chewing gum. He wonders what else must be done and it soon becomes clear he must begin a campaign. Surround himself with those he trusts. Loves. Cleave to his wife close and fell the love of family and friends. Never lose sight of the legacy he will inherit from mistakes of others lying about WMD’s. Leaving promise broken to allies while walking like a maverick for too many years in footsteps of protecting ones father. Talking like a wild west picture movie star. Making global enemies. Making debt, debts. Debt. Debt. Debt. And no questions asked no stalls.
God asks the man again. ‘Are you ready for this? Are you ready for this? Can you run the machine of -‘.
'Yes I can !'.
And the country said we nominate this young man to become our new leader, voting by millions as the competition cried he’s way too young and.Inexperienced bringing nothing of value to the political table.so this fella can’t be a leader. He’s got too many negatives against this opponent having no honor. They began to blame him for being responsible for the industry loss. Anywhere. They said he’s got no ability for appeal abroad. Called his plan a sham. Boo mention of his name in ugly crowds filled in hate. God spoke. ‘Barack! Are you in this race? Are you wiling to sacrifice? Are you willing to stand. Speak. For those who have no voices of their own. can you run this machine -‘.
'Yes I can! We can. Create new jobs. Make our environment green and friendly once more. Give the people affordable housing. Health care. End war. Settle old rivalries. Put family back together. Invite countrymen share the visions. Give fold back their dreams. Keep America from further humiliation. Man up! Without being a maverick. What do I need to do?'.
'Martin said you were an orator, so I bet him you couldn't triple his 'I Have A Dream' crowd. Oh, Bernie Mac said you've no sense of humor and yes I owe Martin $20 for the spectacular you made of yourself in Europe - a piece of advice son, leave to comedy to the Mac man after all he is the 'king' of it. Keep your eyes on the prize. Clear your mind and go to Hawaii to tell Toot good-bye. Joining Me soon. Martin said you were a man of perseverance while Bernie adds you can't dance either. Barack! Are you in this race? Can you run this machine called -'.
'Yes I can !'.
While still being practical in looking ahead into the future which continues to allow fellow countrymen come full circle with many changes or chances to achieve their pursuit of happiness. In the making of our history let no voice go unheard in the telling of facts which shouldn’t be allowed be skewered Altered. But may well become twisted or tarnished by the passage of times train where there are those who perceive themselves on the losing end of issues, an alteration becomes part of a norm. Changing history books will change nothing for those involved in its making!
