THE FAR RIGHT NEFARIOUS AGENDA

Just what have the newly minted Tea Party/Republicans been up to since they were sworn in? Well, one glaring thing is their desire to “take over” a women’s uterus. Do they wish to see all women return to the state of being barefoot and pregnant? What is this absurdity of trying to redefine “rape” or “incest?” What is this attempt to deny a woman, dying from a pregnancy gone wrong, medical care..to have her turned out into the streets? Have these people gone stark raving mad? This seems like a self-fufilling prophecy. Just this summer, the Tea Party bemoaned “Sharia law in America.” THEY are the one’s re-branding it and taking it as their own. They do want religious rule in America, only you’ve got to be a Christian or there is no place at the table. The only people that they want to see have equal rights appear to be heterosexual white males.

I suggest to you that Caucasians in America took a look around and saw that they were not reproducing at the same rates as “minorities.” Then (with a black man in the White House) a fevered push on immigration, guns flying off the shelves, a rise in racist militias, talk of succession & a waxing nostalgic about the Southern Confederacy & the Civil War. (replete with a big ole Scarlett O’Hara bash)

I further suggest to you that the flagrant disrespect towards the POTUS, especially the carrying of open fire arms at an event where he was speaking & the Arizona shooting all stem from the same irrational fear. The fear is of a “colored planet.” We all know that only liberals can tolerate justice and equality for all. Since the President of the United States is obliged to help shape the world, they just have got to get a Republican white man back in there or our country is going straight to perdition! Little matter if Republicans ruined the world’s economy. Now, somehow, Obama did it! No, what he did was win the Presidency fair and square!

It does not matter what President Obama says or does. They have got to take the power back come hell or high water. It doesn’t matter if pregnant women die in the streets, it does not matter how many Hispanics they have to push into the sea, it does not matter how many sick people die, it doesn’t matter how many homeless freeze to death, it doesn’t matter who risks life & limb fighting in wars. It does not matter who gets hurt in this tug of war for power. The only thing that matters is who wins- it is certainly not about fiscal discipline.

Last time that I checked, the Republicans in the Congress couldn’t count the votes prior to taking a vote on the Patriot Act. By the way, the Patriot Act will help protect from foreign & domestic terrorists. Which one of you will be the next to volunteer to be gunned down because nobody knew that a POCKET OF EVIL was fomenting nearby? Tea Party/GOP/bipolar conservative movements, kiss my ass!

THE REPUBLICAN CONFEDERACY CONFLAGRATION

What would the Republican Confederacy do without President Obama to demonize? What would they do without the Administration to castigate? What would they do without Pelosi or Reed? Nothing. They’ve got nothing. They worship at the altar of Ronald Regan’s economic vision. This is a vision which builds up the rich and creates more poor. They feign a sincere concern for the budget, but when it is time for a remedy, they reject the solution in lock-step fashion.

I propose to you that this anti-everything Obama is a ruse to deceive the people. Who made the second Amendment one of God’s ten commandments? They have taken the word of God and perverted it. They have not, “…loved their neighbor as they have loved themselves…” The Word of God says, “…those that live by the sword shall die by the sword…” Is that why there are so many militia in the name of God?  To the end that they themselves perish with the weapons of their choice?  They mask the Word of God with bigotry, while in truth,  it is the wealthy who fuel their outcries of, “steal, killl and destroy…anything Obama”  They have not known the love of God.

They de-legitimized Africans, forcibly removed from their lands, by calling them 3/5 of a person. This means even with the forced slavery of Africans, slave-owners could sleep at night. After all, slaves were not quite human. The Republican Confederacy has done everything within its power to de-legitimize President Obama. The Birthers… Believe me, had there been concrete evidence to the assertion that he was not born in America, everyone would know it. The lawsuits of Orly Taitz (with a thick immigrant accent) would not have been tossed out as frivilous. The state of Hawaii would have acknowledged that the President was not eligible for office. Why do the conspiratists insist that everyone is hiding the truth? The reason is that they have been lied to themselves. They are lied to everytime their faces are glued to Fox news. The lies are untruths mingled with some truth. This is mind control at its finest.  Some truth and then the lies. All will be received as truth. This truth has the capacity to destroy whomever, whatever.

Manifest Destiny helped Europeans steal, kill and destroy Native Americans: it was their God-given right to take whatever they wanted because the “red-skins” were heathens. The Native Americans were de-legitimized in this instance, as well. Believe me when I say that Apache curses still haunt Arizona. It is the bankruptcy state. There remains a glass ceiling. Most people make their money from elsewhere and spend it in their vacation/retirement in Arizona. Arizona itself is akin to the mythological Sisyphus who was punished by Zeus (due to his hubristic belief in his own cleverness) to push a boulder up a hill only to have it roll back down again. This eternity resulted from audacity.

Several months prior to The Battle Of The Alamo (Feb 23rd-March 6, 1836) Texans had driven all Mexicans out of Mexican Texas. Between 1821 and 1836 Texas had been governed by Mexico. Many of the Anglo-American settlers owned slaves. Mexican’s President Anastasio Bustamante ordered all slaves to be freed by 1830. In order to get around this law, many Anglos made their slaves indentured servants for life. By the year 1836, there were 5000 slaves in Texas. In 1830, Bustamante also outlawed immigration of the United States to Texas. In a convention of 1832, angry colonists started the protest with the intent that U.S. Citizens be allowed to immigrate.

 Although Mexico enacted laws to monitor immigration of U.S. citizenry to Mexico; violence ensued by virtue of a revolt against Mexican jurisdiction.  March 2, 1836, Texans signed the Texan Declaration of Independence. On April 21, 1936, the Texas Revolution ended with the capture of the Mexican leader Santa Ana. Then Texans (U.S. immigrants)  called the freshly stolen land, the Republic Of  Texas. Mexico refused to acknowledge its independence. The purpose of the mini- history lesson is to highlight the absurdity of the signs and the people who say, ” we want our country back.”  America is a stolen country. It is an epic tale of immigration. Now, border states cry and groan over illegal immigrants. No wonder history books will be re-written in Texas. The truth remains stained with blood, at best.

These outburts from the Tea party Movement, Conservatives and their prisoners; the Republicans are a smoke-screen for bigotry and separatism. It is a travesty both morally and spiritually. I suggest that those holding up the degrading signs of President Obama take the time to read the Bible and understand that God is NOT with them on this one. He hears the cries of the homeless, hopeless, hungry, sick and disposessed. He does not violate His word for the convenience of those who worship their guns. “…God is nigh unto the broken-hearted…”  I dare one of the tea party people to ask to sit at the table of the leader of one of their movements. To have a cup of tea. While there, if you ever get in, look around you. Their house will  look nothing like yours. Their lifetyle will not look anything like yours. Their motives are nothing like yours. See for yourselves. You have been duped by big money, afterall the rich must get richer no matter what. Regurtigate the lies spun by Fox and friends, separate yourselves from the hundreds of conspiracies out there that defame an Administration which was mired in Republican muck from day one. Think for yourselves. Let me see: Palin is rich, Limbaugh is rich, Beck is rich, O’Reilly is rich, Hannity is rich. For all of your defaming and sign carrying, are you rich too?

THE GREAT LAND GRAB

Who shall inherit the earth, where you have planted
your flowers and built your fences?

Whose bones are buried beneath your feet, although
unmarked, and un-flowered?

Do you suppose borders shall stop the progeny from
returning to the place of ancestors?

Who is now screaming about whose land is whose?
Where are the bones of your forefathers? 

That is your land; the land of your people.

No borders, laws, or penalties shall stop the trail of tears,
DNA leading to the homeland.

Why the flawed measures, the detention centers?
 
Why the table pounding? Don’t you  know that those
who pound the loudest are not the rightful owners?

Re-written books and  re-staged events attempt
 to” legitimize” what was and remains

the great land grab; a Manifest Destiny of annihilation.

It is all too convenient,  too flawed. Who will jump upon their

soap-boxes, filibuster immigration issues,

who will shoot with rubber bullets, and tow away the cars

of protesters? There are many,  but “…The earth is the Lord’s and
the fullness thereof…”

There are no absolutes, here,
since the Statue of Liberty was given the toss.

 As I sit upon my newly purchased plot of land, I know
 although it is not a bridge or highway, eminent domain

gave builders the right  to sell it to me. 
The previous owners, along with those before them,

cry out  from the ground; bloody and plundered.

Justifications fictionalize and fears mount. How will
we feed OUR children?  Not enough care was

given to the feeding of our neighbor’s children.
How then, do we expect to reap a harvest of food?

How do we expect to reap a harvest of righteousness?

CURRENT REPUBLICAN AGENDA

Republicans do not engage in overblown statements because they are ‘psycho.’  These are deliberate inflammatory remarks whereby they can use ‘freedom of speech’ to mask their overt ‘hate speech.’ There is a method to their madness. They are using tried and true hypnotic techniques disguised as slogans and distortions to dismantle the minds of people who are not in the habit of thinking for themselves. It is their hope that with their constant litanies of hate speech, that they can get some ‘un-hinged’ people to further cross the line into breaking serious laws.  Why would the Republicans, Conservatives, Tea Party Movement, KKK and Neo-Nazi groups want this? So that they can say, “We told you so. We told you that our ‘freedom of speech’ would be hindered under Obama. We told you that our freedoms would be curtailed.”  It is a crime to engage in hate speech and act upon it, yet they act like they do not know this. What drivel! They know this all too well. How many lawyers, huh?

They are inciting violence, hatred as well as  naming targets 24/7. They are creating their own ticking ‘time bombs.’ When there is an act dastardly enough for any of their leaders to be investigated, they will say, “See, we told you that it was just a matter of time. We told you that our freedom of speech would eventually be in jeopardy. Now, do you believe us?” “Who is with us?” This is their real purpose for talking like the psychotic. It is to induce psychosis in those who are already in this state of mind. It is to goad and give license for the sociopath, psychopath, homocidal maniac, arsonist, vandalist and anarchist to act. It is that simple. They are desperatly wanting to be right… about something…about anything at this point of a complete political rout. I say, that when they have pushed the masses over the edge into serious criminal activities,  go after the Dr. Frankensteins!

BEWARE OF SEEDS SOWN: REAPING WILL SOON FOLLOW

Is there anyone who can justify the divisiveness that we see in the United States today? There is no reason, no cause, no delusion, no suspicion, no ideology sufficient to vindicate the vile, repulsive attitudes on display in this country. Did the purpose of 9/11’s destructiveness work its perfect end: confusion and division; a weakened country?  What in the hell is going on in this country?

 Who can justify division of this magnitude? Where is self-restraint? What outcome can there be from the hatred spewed out upon the citizens of the United States by a faction of fanatics. There is nothing but lunacy on display with the placards, signs, images and slogans of hate. What do these people believe that they will accomplish sowing such discord? There will be a reaping, but it will not be that which this “cancerous cause” would have.  BEWARE OF SEEDS SOWN: REAPING WILL SOON FOLLOW.

FEAR IS A DEMON RIDING UPON THE SPIRIT OF ERROR

Fear is a spirit. In fact, there are multiple spirits of fear. Fear is the devil’s salesman. If a person gives in to the spirit of fear, their faith is cancelled out. Fear and faith are polar opposites.  People who are afraid,  are rendered powerless and can only be tormented by endless scenarios of what “might happen.” Fear will make people commit crimes as a result of having a “fixed delusion” that their well-being is in jeopardy. Fear has hatred as its “wingman.” If you are afraid, you have been imprisoned within your own mind.

The reason that the religious Right is afraid is because they labor under the spirit of fear & torment. Its been awhile since “so called Christians” have spewed out such hatred. Scripture says that, “he who hates his brother has the spirit of murder.” Is this who stands in so many pulpits today?  Fear is riding bareback upon humans. Those who are suceptible to the spirit of fear will do anything to relieve the fear that has a grip upon them. The whole show of guns at a Presidential townhall has less to do with the Second Amendment, than a projection of defiance within the delusion.

How is president Obama going to be an “illegal alien,” a “Marxist,” a “socialist,” a “communist” a “Muslim”  the “Antichrist,” “the Beast,” and the “False Prophet?” Come on people, those who have these fears are imprisoned by the spirit of fear. None of these claims can be born out in the Scriptures. The pastors of those churches preaching this should have their tax-exempt statuses checked. Unless, of course, there is a church called fear which enjoys this status with the IRS. The pulpit should not be the platform for political “bomb throwing.” This has to stop because those who participate are not Christians  according to the New Testament. These people worship at the altar of the “False Church.” 

I am going to call it what it is. The spirit of error, fear, racism, and murder is on display. Strangely enough,  Republican leaders are following the prisoners. These churches are praying imprecatory prayers against President Obama. They are praying that the Lord God, High and Mighty will smite him for the world to see.  This is not going to happen. Rather those who speak these “word curses” over our president will become the recipient of the judgments that they have placed upon him. The fear that they should have is the “fear of the Lord.” It is the judgement of God that is coming for them, from the leastmost unto the utmost. There is not going to be a pitch-fork wielding, lynch mob coming to the White House. God will not allow it.

What there will be, is judgement and a sword going into the houses of those who preach a “false gospel.” To those who spread fear as a net to ensnare the ‘weak-minded,” there will be a sword and judgment coming to every secret enclave of insurrection. Are we, who have suffered under Republican rule to turn the reigns over to this mob, by virtue of their vomiting fear upon our nation? The people have spoken, and the Republicans have turned into insurrectionists. They are willing to destroy the union of the United States of America to regain power. They take the constitution and amendments and spin a web of deceit and lies. They gather together and chant a mantra of TREASON.

Those in the pulpit who spew hatred and not love in the name of Jesus, should have their tax exempt status removed. Those who are leading movements in the name of  “freedom of speech,” but are “pockets of evil” inciting treason against the Executive Branch of the United States should be dealt with according to the laws of TREASON. When George W. Bush was in his “stolen office.”  We, the people, suffered under his rule. When his reptilian lynchman, Dick Cheney, violated laws and became a “war criminal,” we suffered under his rule in the name of safety. We, the people, were put in psychological prisons of various colors: red, orange and yellow. We suffered racial profiling in all public places. Now, when the people’s President goes to speak, they carry guns. When he goes to give an address to a college, he is denied the honor of being given a “honorary doctorate.” based on some baseless rationale. When he plans to address young people to encourage them to leave the video-world and hit the books, there is an insurrection of the fearful. THESE PEOPLE ARE COWARDS AND PRISONERS OF FEAR. 

We, the people, are not deceived by their devices. Where is the outcry from the other branches of government for the affronts to the office of the Presidency?  Where is the outcry from the Jewish communities to the hateful symbols of the Nazis, being paraded around at these townhalls? Should the symbols of the deaths of your relatives be paraded around by people who do not understand the stench of it?  If you do not speak out  now against these symbols as being unacceptable, then the people will become de-sensitized to these symbols of death. What is to stop this mob-mind from soon coming and violating your Synagogues on a large scale? Remember, these people preach a “false gospel.” They distrust anyone who is not like them. The fearful, fear-peddling Right think that they have tied the hands of those rightfully elected into office. Albeit, there is justice higher than that of man. There is a reckoning, and not of man. There is a righteous judgement, and not of man. What we will see is the untimely deaths of those who pray for the President’s death. They are withstood in the realm of the spirit. There is a divine restraint that will not allow them to succeed.

President Barack H. Obama is not the son of slaves. He does not have the legacy of slavery in his DNA. He is not fearful, as we who lived under slavery and Jim Crow have had enforced fear emblazoned upon our collective consciousnesses.  Our President is a brave and honorable man. Demonizing him will not change this. He is the son of a Kenyan (warrior) and a Kansan (white)  The vitriol being spewed from the pulpits will be judged. The Republican leaders who willfully disseminate lies will be judged. Those who are in the media and spew lies in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, will find out that it is THEY who call evil good and good evil. It is they who will experience the fear of the Lord, the snare and the pit. It is they whom the avenging angel of the Lord will withstand.

ENOUGH!!!! You LOST the election. You lost because of gross mismanagement. The Presidency was given to someone better than you. Get over it. Go read your Bible again. Stop receiving this second hand information from those who hate, those with an agenda, and those who cannot get beyond the complexion of another’s skin. Go to the Scriptures. You are on the wrong side of God. He has commanded Christians to pray for the good of those who have rule over us in order that they make wise decisions concerning us. What kind of doctine do these hypocrites preach ?  What we are witnessing, in this apocalyptic separation of the “wheat & tares,” is the FALSE CHURCH.

May the scales fall off of the eyes of those imprisoned by fear, led by a false pastor. To those who willfully commit these acts of division and mayhem, may the judgement wherewith you judge President Barack Obama be your portion, in the mighty, matchless name of Jesus. May you eat the fruit of your lips. May you be judged according to the condition of your hearts and the measure of truth within you. May those who follow false teachers, be freed from these doctrines that are diametrically opposed to Christian teachings. I speak forth victory and vindication for President Barack H. Obama. I assign an angelic guard around him night and day. May warrior angels accompany him wherever he goes. May those who are actively plotting bodily harm against the President, fall prey to the very violence that they plan and preach. I declare an utter end to the ” POCKETS OF EVIL.” which gather together in order to destroy the President of the United States.

For all of the shame that President Obama has had to endure from the hands of the “sore losers,” give him a “double portion of everlasting joy and prosperity.”  Lord, bless everything that our President sets his hands to do and destroy the prayers of wickedness against him by letting them fall to the ground, void. “…this affliction shall not arise a second time…” Nahum 1:9. Lord show yourself strong and mighty in defense of the President of the United States. Dispatch legions of Your Holy angels to swiftly answer this prayer. Through your unprecedented supernatural deliverance, may those who truly know you rejoice and be glad, in Jesus Name.  Amen and Amen

 

POCKETS OF EVIL

Sinister, snickering,

Spinning, plotting

Destruction.

Awaiting

the unsuspecting.

Venomous lusts

For wrongdoing

Fulminate.

Arising passions

Secrete hatred

And violence,

Unable to contain

This unbridled

Propensity

For evil,

Awaiting

Some passer-by

Traveling unaware

Through a

Pocket of evil:

Sojourners beware!

THE REPUBLICAN CONFEDERACY

Long ago, after the Civil War, there were the cries of the defeated Confederacy, “the South shall rise again.” We are seeing it and hearing it in disbelief as this configuration of forked-tongued, delusional politicians and the routed far-right spin, plot and plan President Obama’s destruction.  There is just one big problem; God despises hypocrites. He loathes them. He despises liars and their lies, he despises plots planned behind closed doors to destroy a man who gave the  United States of America hope.  The Extreme Right will fail. The secessionists will fail, the NRA poster children will fail. They are unrighteous. They have no compassion or pity for the poor or needy and they only crave power. Why do they try to sell the world on a God who does not care for people suffering in pain and without help or hope?  I have a news flash: The Lord God High and Mighty put President Barack H. Obama in office and there isn’t a thing that the birthers, deathers, seccessionists, and dangerously armed can do about it.

 

The word of God declares that it is God who sets the kings of the earth in office. The Religious Right should be ashamed of themselves for being bigots. They have resorted to lies to defame Barack Obama. These lies will be exposed to the light of moral truth, and those who tell them will be laughing stocks for many years to come. The strategy that the Republicans are now working will fail. They rationalize,  just like their ancestors who said that a slave was only a fraction of a human therefore could be sold as chattel. The more the Republicans lie and vilify the President the greater will be their own fall from grace.

 

Many liberal media outlets seem to think that Obama really believes that he can win over the Republicans. How can he still believe in this?  In a game of basketball when there is an excellent player, they will have that person guarded by two or more players to stop him. Have you ever heard of the basketball move of “faking to the right” and moving to the left to drive the basket to the hoop? I do not understand why the liberal media thinks that this brilliant Chicago lawyer and politician has gotten to the White House and turned stupid. Do they really think that the President of the United States is less aware of his opposition than the liberal media? Poppycock!  President Obama has the discipline required to submerge his ego to gain what his ego truly desires. Remember, Secretary Clinton had no idea that she had already lost the nomination, because of the way President Obama played his hand. If she had known, she would not have accrued so much additional debt. Think about it for a minute.

 

I decree success to everything that President Obama and their staff set their hands to do. Who can curse what God has blessed? This is the parable of the mercenary prophet Balaam who was going to curse the children of Israel for filthy lucre’s sake. The Lord sent an angel to withstand him. He opened his mouth to curse, and blessings poured out instead. God is gong to take the curses coming against the President, nullify them and then promote him in front of all of those who hate him. The mistake that the Republicans are making is that they actually believe the lies that they tell. The subconscious mind receives all information as truth. When the Republicans tell themselves over and over again that they will topple the President, I am sure that they believe what they are saying. To the rest of the world they look like they howl at the moon.

 

Everyone should rejoice and be glad that I am  not calling the shots. I would make sure that all of the big-mouthed Republicans walk in the moccasins of the poor, disenfranchised, unemployed, disabled and sick. Let them carry the loads of their brethren in Christian charity. I am sure there will be no volunteers for this. But I will say that those who cause the most problems for the majority of the nation and the leader of our nation shall lose their positons of power, their spheres of influence,  their luxury and even their country club memberships. I can safely predict that those who call good evil and evil good who will have a major run of “Murphy’s law.” The Religious Right have ceased their clarion call for revival. They don’t talk about the end-time harvest. They talk about deposing “the tyrant.”  They have failed to understand that they are on the wrong side of God on healthcare for all. The Republicans shall fail because they have a collective  seared conscience and low moral ground.

RACE REACTION POST 11/04/08

It is doubtful whether or not McCain or Palin know what will be the aftermath of their “great racial divide.” Sarah Palin, who seems unfamiliar with cultures other than white and Eskimo, has succeeded in kicking up a brutal, underlying spirit of division, hatred; perhaps even murder. In Nashville,  during the Belmont debate, a black man was shot three times (with a BB gun) after being stalked by a “skin-head,” for wearing an Obama t-shirt.  One of these bullets hit his face. He survived. What McCain and Palin might not know is that for decades the Aryan Nation and white supremists have been waiting for a “race war.” I am sure that they feel that the time has come with Obama’s bid for presidency, and the excitement of the minority vote.  Here in Nashville, a black youth, proudly wearing an Obama t-shirt was told by an older Southern white man, ” take off that shirt, boy, there is never gonna be a black man as president.”

Do the Republican candidates, in their desperate attempts to keep a sinking ticket afloat, realize what they have unleashed? Sarah Palin has tapped into the ugliest spirit of hatred and murder that we have seen since the Civil Rights movement. She stepped out of the pages in time and laid a line of division, from which we will all have to heal. Now, should Obama win, how many of these people, who are running to buy guns, are  homocidal? The Obama assasination plot was hatched here in Tennessee. The freedoms that we seek in our privacy cannot be realized because of all of the screw-ball-racist-would-be-assassins that have been stirred up.

How much will it cost the Secret Service to protect a President Obama and his family? Conversly, black people will go ballistic if they feel that the election was stolen from Obama by McCain-Palin. How rabid, we do not know. Some of the young people who are voting for the first time have grown up on a diet of “gangsta rap,” and also have lived this lifestyle. They have invested themselves and their identities into Senator Obama. Who will take this away from them? Not this time, not without an incalculable blacklash.

At the McCain campaign rallies, where the attendees are John McCain’s “fellow prisoners,” we see and hear the virulent “shot-gun” politics which have its attendees with blood in their eyes. The effects of McCain-Palin tapping into the “lesser angels” of the people is something that the nation will have to deal with for a long time. This campaign itself has been very long. The Clinton camp went through the grieving process for awhile before joining with Obama for a unified Democratic party. How long will it take the McCain-Palinites to recover from defeat?

I say defeat because Senator John McCain always talks about fighting. All the time. Hmmm… Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, unattended. His anger is legendary and ugly. He should receive psychological help. Would anyone be able to survive being a POW for five years without Post Traumatic Stress Disorder? So, the fearless leader of the Republican ticket needs therapy. His side-kick, Governor Sarah Palin needs ethnic diversity sensitivity training. Her star will fade. She is not worthy of it. Talk about a polarizing figure. She’s not worthy to tie Senator Hiliary Clinton’s shoes, let alone finish shattering that glass ceiling!

If anything violent happens to Barack Obama, a civil war will ensue. There will be no winners here. Should the Republicans have a hard time moving on, the fringe element that Sarah Palin plays so well to, are capable of violence in the name of God. I have heard repeatedly that these people believe that Obama is the antichrist. I suggest that they reference the Bible carefully. They have no idea what they are talking about. Perhaps, we were not concerned enough when the disturbed young lady carved a “B” into her own face and made a false police report. This is a throw back to when a white  woman who alleged rape at a black man’s hands, resulted in a lynching. Sometimes, it was something as simple as an “uppity’ glance her way.

Why has Sarah Palin been allowed to tap into the ugliest hatred in a country where racism bubbles heatedly under the shallow ground? Why didn’t Senator McCain understand the fury that she had unleashed? There will be backlashes on both sides of this great divide. As I live and breathe, the paradigm shift in America is here and no amount of hate or violence will stop its momentum. The days of putting fear into black voters, in order to keep them away from the polls, are over. The days of throw everything including the “kitchen-sink” campaigning are over. The days of unbridled, unpenalized bigotry are over.

Republicans, step lightly. I advise you to do everything within your power to keep President Obama alive and well… The nation must heal on so many levels, and we are ill-prepared for the possible chaos of the race reaction post November 4th, just as we were when the levees broke in New Orleans during hurricane Katrina.
