When I listened to President Obama give his State of the Union Address, tears came to my eyes. Here was a man who genuinely cares about America. This man loves his wife and children. He did not become President for the same reasons most men become President. He became one to show America how sick we really are.

As Obama spoke to the nation, the world was watching but most importantly, children of America were watching as well. What they saw was very sad. Sitting right before us were grown people representing our Country literally pouting like two-year old children. The Republican Party refused to show any signs of concern for the American people. They did not have the ability to give any inkling of hope that we can save America.

These same people ran this Country for eight years. They want us to act like damages that occurred during that time never happened. Anybody in their right mind knows their plans used to run America invoked self-destruction. The damages are still prevalent today. Einstein once wrote: "Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result is insanity". We cannot continue to follow The Republican Party's way of thinking if we want a solid future for our children.

Because of the past, not the present, America is suffering severely. Democrats against Republicans and vice versa are a guaranteed war that will finish off this Country. Obama, I do believe if he had his way neither party would exist. A House divided against itself cannot stand. While this war is going on, nations surrounding us are getting stronger and watching us become weaker.


Obama can only expose the catalysts that control and destroy America. Many people responded to his speech like victims who do not know how to accept the truth. They would rather forget the past and blame present choices for the struggles we face today. Because of the severe victimization we have accepted for so long, possible healing is like a dream, a sure impossibility. To survive, many people attack Obama because to accept the reality of what they accepted years ago would be too traumatic. Attacking makes it more bearable when in reality they know we were raped.

For sure, it is obvious the President does not have the power people tend to think he has. Instead they are whipping post for decisions made and not made by people we elect to be with him. Eight years ago it was Bush who was blamed for our woes. He appeared to be in sync with these ridged leaders. But was he really? Obama is not in sync with them and they are determined to tame and break him because no one is coming into that White House and heal this nation. They just will not allow it.

Clean house, eliminate all bacteria. Anything else is continued abused for the American people. Should there be a revolution? Yes!

The Second Battlefield - Israel’s fight in the media

The shul president walks into the Rabbi’s office and horrified, sees that the Rabbi is watching Al Jazeera TV. “Rabbi”, he exclaims, “how could you. Are you becoming, G-d forbid a self-loathing Jew? The Rabbi replies, “On the contrary, when I read the newspapers like the New York Times I see that Jews are victims of anti-Semitism, others call for our destruction and we are at a perpetual state of war in our homeland. But when I watch Al Jazeera I hear that we are running the world, controlling world economies and the media. I feel so much better.”

Our proud and precious life as animals

The human race is the god for all other creatures. Humans are the beginning and the end of everything that goes on in this world. We can make ships that float on water and planes that fly in the air. We can even use the black earth to grow everything we can possibly think of! We are almighty and all other creatures must bow down to us!

Sarah Palin - the chick I used to date

Sarah Palin. She looks like a chick I dated in college who might have been on an equal personality level: they both were/are good looking, vain and transparent: with or without make-up.

Palestinian education - an investment in the future or child abuse?

Education is a basic human right that is often taken for granted in the western world. The South African Constitution which is arguably one of the most democratic in the world, states that every child is entitled to receive an education. Educating our children is an investment in our future. How do we build a strong and sustainable country without proper education?

What does an atheist do once he has lost faith in himself?

Even though I could be considered an atheist or agnostic, every once in a while talking about religion like it was some sort of a mental illness, I do believe faith is important in our lives, independent of whether you believe in god or anyone else. Simply the blind faith that causes wars, intolerance, the faith that says you are right and I am not, the faith that makes some people morons, that's the faith I do not get.
