    It is like "driving while Black."

    I don't know what consciousness is or how it works, but I like it.

      That was a real "world-historical event."  People don't always understand how important that is for the world, not just Americans.  Racism is a world-wide phenomenom.  So many Africans and other people of color take great pride in a black man being president of the United States, the most powerful nation in the world.   That matters so much.  The "oppressor in their mind" is weakened and condidence and pride is strengthened.  

      I think he is wrong on this policy, but I choose not to demonize him for it.

        downtrodden though.  That was my dream, that was my pony.  He has been great to serve as a military family.  He is an amazing Commander when it comes to bad guys and war.  He is a horrible champion of little people though.

        On the homefront I am stuck with something very Reaganesque.  Yet in the face of the crash, that play is just flat dispicable.  I have to MAKE HIM DO what I want.  So I will.

        Reagan couldn't hold a candle to Obama though in dealing with Iraq and Afghanistan IMO.  How does a Democrat be the best CIC in generations and at the time horrible on domestic policy when the little man and family needs him most?  Some strengths and failings defy party I guess.
