  •  I believe racism exists anywhere. It's here, too (10+ / 0-)

    but few want to hear it. BTW, I am a white old lady and it bothers me very much. I always reply when I see it but I have not read the diaries that scream those names. (I sometimes get yelled at online when I call it out.)

    I am still shell-shocked by Newtown events and I'm also remembering an AA 5-year old cousin of a dear friend who was shot and killed in a drive-by in Chicago. I keep thinking not only of the babies in Newtown but all the other babies who have died on the streets here, and mourning them all.

    I have 4 grand babies, ages 8, 6, almost-5, and 9 months. I don't know what I'd do if, well, if.

    I am also on soc sec and would be effected by any cuts. I do NOT believe the President caves on anything. I think he makes decisions and does what he can. I still don't want any soc sec cuts to happen, but I love my President and would never call him names. I believe we are very lucky to have him during this time.


    •  I agree. I think he is more constrained by those (5+ / 0-)

      around him than anything else. I really like what I saw today with Biden and the gun thing. Watching him deliver that address in Newtown, you could see how pissed off he was. Gun violence has affected the AA community HARD. Now that 20 little babies in a rich community have died in a hail of bullets, the country is paying attention. Time to strike while the iron is hot.I am not happy seeing him push chained cpi on SS. But that comes back to the fact we need more and better progressives. I refuse to play in the Obama Rox/Sux diaries. Glad he is our President. I think he is doing a good job. And frankly, he really is  a centrist as much as I wish he would go righteous Ted Kennedy in his 2nd term. And if anybody gives a crap - it's winter and I'm turning Best Foods mayonnaise white.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.
