Tonight two scumbags are in custody because they were threatening to kill 40 African-Americans and Presidential Candidate Barack Obama. Why? Why such hate in these modern times? You are no better than a black man and a black man is no better than me. The same goes for Asians, Hispanics and everyone else in-between. In the eyes of God we are all equal, it is not this exterior body which makes the difference, it is the spirit within. Now I know there are minorities out there who do not contribute to our society, who perform criminal acts, acts of violence. All this hatred and turmoil needs to end. We need to mature as a society. We need to take one another by the hand, love your African-American brother or sister, love your Hispanic brother or sister, love your Asian brother or sister. The spirit within is all that matters.
If Barack Obama becomes President of our country, it is a monumental step in the right direction. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream. A dream where all men embraced one another in love and unity. There is no race in Dr. King’s dream, there is no color of the skin, only the purity of the soul. That is how it should be.
I find it immature and disgusting when people let hatred destroy good things. Hatred has no place in a mature society. There is no reason that an African-American cannot be President. There is no reason why someone of Latin American descent cannot be President. It is called equality. This country was founded with the principle that ALL MEN (PEOPLE) are created equal. Not all white people, ALL PEOPLE!
If you have hatred in your heart for someone, ask yourself…is this worth throwing my life away over? Would killing 40 African-Americans truly change anything? No. It would do nothing except make the news for a couple weeks and then would fade into history and be FORGOTTEN! Hatred does not survive. Only love survives. Hatred is forgotten. Love is eternal. Color is immaterial.
Politics turns friends into enemies. It is a proven fact. I myself have experienced it. But I feel it is important to outline my reasons for voting for Barack Obama in the upcoming election. Let me start by expressing my empathic feelings about John McCain.
I used to consider John McCain a decent, respectable, man. Hell, I even have “Faith of my Fathers” sitting on my bookshelf. I read it the moment I purchased it. I have sent McCain support in the past…but that was before facts came to light. That was before I realized that he was not the decent, respectable, man I had thought he was. Believe it or not, I listen to his speeches regardless of whether or not I agree with him. It is from these speeches that I was able to pick up certain things which were wrong or seemed forced and not something which came freely from his heart. I soon saw a stiff old man, who was nothing more than a prime example of the kind of politics which have caused several problems over the past eight years. Looking deeper I found that this man wanting to be president was in agreement with Bush 90% of the time. I found this out long before Obama began running ads to the fact. There are several key points that really drove things home for me. Here’s a few…
1. John McCain defines rich as making $5 million or more. By McCain’s logic, you’re middle class if you’re making $3 million per year. Do you think that’s middle class?
2. John McCain thinks “the fundamentals of our economy are strong.” For who? With the mortgage crisis taking people’s houses and gas prices rising, just who is McCain talking about?
3. John McCain is more of the same. McCain is offering more of the same economic policies we’ve gotten from President Bush for the last eight years. McCain thinks multimillionaires are members of the middle class, homeowners are to blame for the housing crisis, and Big Oil needs more tax breaks but middle class families don’t.
McCain simply exists to fill his own pockets, to care for his people — the rich — and has no empathy for the suffering families of this country. He says he cares, yet do you really see that? When you look at his face, in his eyes, do you see someone who wants to reach out and aid those most in need of a helping hand? I don’t. I see an old school politician, who will make the White House his comfy house and do nothing but send us deeper into economic misery, will continue the already prolonged war in Iraq and who will fortify corporations with tax cuts when they simply don’t deserve it. We will continue to rely on foreign oil. No new innovations in clean alternative forms of energy will be supported. And last, but not least, we will have a bimbo vice president who clearly thinks she is above the laws of this country. She abused her powers as governor of Alaska, and she has already clearly shown she thinks she can get away with anything. She has no agenda of her own, she merely mirrors John McCain in every word, every thought, every quote.
Barack Obama is the clear choice for America. For American families. Barack will put the middle class first. He’ll pass a middle class tax cut that gives 95% of working Americans a tax cut of up to $1,000—and he’ll give families an emergency energy rebate to help folks cope with rising gas prices. He’ll offer students a $4,000 tax break to pay for tuition in exchange for doing 100 hours of community service. And he’ll raise the minimum wage and index it to inflation.
When I go to vote on November 4th, I will be voting for Obama/Biden. This country has been on the road to self-destruction for 8 years, help Obama grab the wheel and steer us toward a new direction. The one which leads to hope and prosperity for all Americans.
LOL! I’d like to see the McCain camp come up with something like this…it’ll never happen. Patience…steel…triumph!
Next March I will be celebrating my fourth year of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard Entertainment’s incredibly successful and popular online MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role playing game) – there are currently over 12 million players worldwide. I decided about a month ago to leave the server I had been playing on and rejoin my best friends Keith and Ian on the server known as Tichondrius, where I used to play about 2 years ago. Man, those guys are like brothers to me we have known each other so long and played so many online games together.
Last week Blizzard released a new patch to World of Warcraft which made the game even better. In all the years I have been playing, at no time can I recall ever having such a great time. Not only doing quests and daily quests, but also PvP (player vs. player). I used to hate PvP with a passion. It would frustrate me, I’d get mad and just give up. I got pissed off knowing the other player had won…and I would be a real jerk when I won. Now though, for some reason, I have calmed down and seem to enjoy it more. I laugh when I lose, because it’s game and it’s funny.
Last night Keith, Ian and I got together in the arenas, an environment where you compete with other teams. These teams can be players on your own server or players from a different server, it’s a random thing. Well we hadn’t played in arenas for almost 5 days because of some issues which arose after the patch. Those were addressed and we went in last night hoping to pull off a few wins. We ended up winning 11 games, losing 7. I took one of the major victories of the evening and made a movie. It’s been a while since I made a WoW movie…so it was fun. So here’s that movie…enjoy!
Calevan is my character, a blood elf frost mage. Keith plays Rigid, a warrior; and Ian plays Rekomoo, a shaman.
