    After listening to Obama's interview with O'Reilly I can see more clearly what's going on. Though this is not new knowledge for many of you.

    Both Obama and O'Reilly fear the same thing. They just have differing ideas about how best to avoid the thing they fear.

    This is the position we are in as a nation: The United States is like the man who has been riding on the back of a lion for centuries, digging his spurs into the lion's sides, slapping the lion upside the head, pulling its mane. Now the man wants to get down off the lion. He fears that what he has been doing is wrong. He fears the pains he has been experiencing might be the result of his wrong doing. So is he just going to climb down off the lion and walk home? Will the lion just stand there and let him walk away. Maybe watch after him to see him safely to his front door? If it were just Africans the U.S. had been messing with that could be a possibility but those middle easterners aren't known for their capacity to forgive and forget.

    The United States has committed atrocious sins all over the world. Everywhere we go we steal, kill and destroy. We have incurred a tremendous debt, even greater than the seven trillion dollar national deficit. That's what national security is all about. We don't want to pay that debt. People like O'Reilly think we can indefinitely defer repayment by classifying our creditors as terrorists and beating them to a pulp. Obama hopes maybe we can negotiate for lower interest rates. That's the best he or anyone else can do. America will not elect a president who will do the right thing and declare moral bankruptcy. That won't even make a difference in the eyes of the nations we have hurt.

    Orr we can follow McCain and O'Reilly. Their plan will do nothing but capitalize on the interest thus increasing a debt that is already unpayable.

    In less than two months we shall see which way America decides to go.

    river,

    Wholeheartedly, I agree with your assessment of their conversation, and great story-telling you used. Only a short time to go.

    FWIW

    the older white people in NE philly are now openly stating that they will not vote for obama because of his colour...
    the ward leaders are telling them he is half white.

    When people would rather let a white man tear their country down than see a Black man lift it up that shows their hatred of Blacks is greater than their love of their country. Aapparently the price of gas hasn't gone up high enough for them.

    Obama and America: What It's All About

    I agree. Not only is earth shifting, so is human consciousness. However, it may be too late to save America. The white race has underestimated much of the world with their illusion of superiority. They have ran rough shod over the people's of color as if the world's people were put in the world to be their slave or whipping post. They have stolen, maligned, humiliated, murdered, manipulated, and destroyed everything they have touched in their greedy endless quest for money and power.

    When one deludes oneself as long as the white race has, there is no coming back. The pendulum swings one way and then the other. Justice must be met. There is no avoiding it. The arabs are victims as black people are, so when the mess hits the fan, lets ask ourselves who do we as black people align with, the other victim or the victimizer? That choice may be what sets us apart or lumps us with those who are about to reap what they sowed. Be interesting to see just how brainwashed we are.

    At this point, it really doesnt matter who is president, either way, America is on the way out. I want to see Obama make history, I do. But I also dont want to see him as the one holding the bag when Humpty Dumpty takes its great fall.

    Could this be what is called "The Bradley Effect"?

    The long time so called "african american" mayor in Los Angeles who ran for Govenor of California and the polls showed him ahead for the entire campaign but when the white people went into the booths to elect him they voted for his opponent...it is belived because Bradley was a non-white person and his apponent was a white person. This happened both in 1982 and 1986.
