Martin Luther King Jr. , on August 28 , 1963
said "...I have a Dream , " , and a large part of it comes True tomorrow , January 20 , 2oo9 !
When people around the World welcome the 44th President of the United States : Barack Hussein OBAMA !
"...This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."
Congratulations Martin* !

---I was and am excited by Obama's win , it's taken me some time to digest it all . So other than some happy tears , I've been relatively subdued .
...'Cause I knew the ReTHUGlicans would continue to Screw the working-class in all "they" do . This latest time is the Big 3 Auto Loan legislation in the US Senate . It's like the Game-Over GOP is actively working on some sorta evil mission to destroy America (further) .
If ya take a shower before work , "they" give ya a BJ Bail-out .
If ya shower after work , it's "F" You , ya greedy bastards !
One question remains , , , will President Obama & the Democratic Congress tell "them" ta Shove IT , WE control the Government
...or will we continue to (act like we) love it as Republicans play yesterday's game ?

34 years ago, in my early 20's and already having given birth to two children, I had a high risk pregnancy. At 25 weeks, I started leaking amniotic fluid. I was put in the hospital immediately. Because of the leaking, I was told, the risk of infection to myself and the baby was very high. I was kept in hospital until the erratic labor subsided. My "water" never actually broke for the week I was in the hospital. However, the day after I was sent home my baby began delivering spontaneously, feet first - no "broken water" no labor pains.
How can a woman, who has already given birth 4 times and is in her 40's, not know that each pregnancy is different? How can a woman , who has gone through 4 pregnancies, not be well versed in the dangers that can happen and know how to take care of herself ? How can a woman, who knows her pregnancy is high risk, not know that things can take a turn for the worse at any moment? Every expecting mother gets the standard pamphlet about pregnancy at her doctor's office. The restrictions on travel later in pregnancy, the warning signs of things that can go wrong and when to call the doctor.
And, how can a doctor advise a pregnant, high-risk patient to continue on her journey knowing that the patient was leaking amniotic fluid and exposing herself to public bacteria for 9+ hours! If true, this doctor should have her license permanently revoked !
How can a woman, who (politically?) values the lives of ALL unborn children, be so blatantly negligible with her own unborn child? You don't have to be a psychotherapist to consider that someone in her shoes might have unconsciously wanted the pregnancy to end in a still birth. But, that would be politically incorrect to even think, let alone, say out loud about a political figure .
It makes me furious that some would spin the story to make it look as if she did this out of her sense of "duty to the people" . Gov. Palin's choice of whether or not to travel, in light of the risk she was taking, was ultimately HER choice - even if she had consulted her physician. She had to know she was risking the life of her unborn child, with high odds that the delivery could end in a fatality.
For all the care and precautions I (and the medical community) took, sadly, my daughter was stillborn. Palin (luckily) beat the odds. Some would give the Governor a medal for her bravery – forgetting her stupidity.

I have NO answer to this* , but I do have a question .
How much longer will we float in our pools , sip our cocktails and feed the machine while we bend our vulnerable asses over to be PIG raped ?
Desperate opportunist John McCrazy says :
"I believe that either today or tomorrow -- and I'm not privy to his schedule -- Sen. Obama will be landing in Iraq with some other senators" who make up a congressional delegation, McCain said at a Republican fund-raiser. "
McBush and the RePIGlican media have been auditioning in vain to be Obama's travel agent for months now , but in announcing Obama's Iraq trip in advance , Senator McStupid has crossed the line .
If anybody needs even 1 clue as to why VIP's NEVER pre-announce an Iraq "F"in' W-ar trip , , , ya win the "Duh" prize , My Friend . Let's just say the answer starts with a bang (or boom) and ends with a Revolution where we , the People eat the rich .
The only other question remaining , will the corp-WHORE-ate media wad their panties ina bunch over this ?
