sing4peace BS: Freedom Of Speech? Not about Our Leader! (42) RE: BS: Freedom Of Speech? Not about Our Leader! 29 Sep 09

There were some scary marchers during the Bush era too. A lot of folks I didn't want to march next to. But I do agree that the tone of the Obama bashers is a lot more frightening than anything I have seen in all of my marching years.

I have been very concerned about Obama's safety and that of our country since the day he (Obama) won enough votes to secure the nomination. It was coincidentally the anniversary of the assassination of Robert Kennedy. All day long on the CNN news channel, the banner announcing the assassination anniversary ran underneath pictures of a smiling Obama.

Unlike the elections of 2000 and 2004, there were no reported incidents of state police roadblocks keeping minorities away from the polls (as there were in Florida 2000) or major voter fraud via computer hackers (as there were in Ohio 2004). Not to under appreciate the organizing that the Obama campaign did - or to downplay what seems to me to be a pretty clear choice between Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin - but it was just too easy. Suspiciously so.

The economy was crumbling. Bush pulled the pin on the bail-out hand grenade before leaving office - leaving Obama to pick the shrapnel out of his skin before even stepping foot into the Oval office. I believe it was always the plan to allow the economy and socio/political discourse to totally devolve under the Democrats' watch.

With the exacerbation of racist fears and class resentments, we find ourselves ill equipped to face the problems that are facing our country. We really need to question everything that comes out of the squawk boxes - left, right - and take a stand for reason over volume.

Evolution Now! (but I guess that won't be televised either)
