House Negros were followers not leaders

Osama Bin Laden’s top Al Qaeda deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, was reported to have called the President-elect Barack Obama a “house Negro.” Without followers, Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahri would be lost in their medieval ideology that comes from that part of that distance past that ruled and governed the masses through fear, a self interpreted theocracy, and violence. The orator skills of Barack Obama and the respect he received from many in the muslin world for becoming the President-elect might trickle down to followers of Osama Bin Laden. I’m one to believe Al Qaeda can be defeated with words and truth. Obama has demonstrated when he speaks the world listens and likes what he says; he can unmask and put the spot light on the idiosyncrasies existing in the Al Qaeda’s belief system. In my opinion, this is Obama’s greatest potential at this moment in time. House Negros were silent, obedient and well programmed to serve their masters; these types are similar to the followers of Osama Bin Laden. Barack Obama is not a follower; he is a leader. It is my belief his words will free the followers of Osama Bin Laden.

Reality and a page turned

For those Americans that are feeling bitter and down about the election results and the many comments concerning the inadequacies existing in the Bush administration, try having a reality check. When you are done, try not to be so disappointed in those Americans that criticized George Bush’s policies. If a sane person witnessed someone driving off a cliff, that person would scream and try to stop him; he would not willfully and joyfully join him. With no apology, many of us criticized George Bush’s policies and arrogance because we were concerned about the path he was taking the country on. Furthermore, many of us feel he should have been impeached. Having said all of this, many of us and others in other parts of the world can turn the page on the Bush administration. We have hope that the president elect, Barack Obama, will restore much of what was lost.

McCain claims a share of pride in our nation

Like many, I was so proud to see the first African-American become president-elect in the U.S.; equally, I was proud of John McCain's concession speech. It was the John McCain we once knew.
