To IHunter, Obama is not in the Mafia, the only lies he has ever made were the promises he couldn't keep because of the polarized legislature. They are even more polarized because Obama is a Black man and the TPartiers and their ilk cannot stand to see a Black man succeed in government so they'd rather see the country go backwards, shut down and lose it's credit rating.
Socialism has been with this country since FDR and has included every Republican president since.
Obamacare is nearly identical to the healthcare in Mass. established by the wishy washy Romney.
Canada and almost all of Europe has similar health programs.
You really are a one-sentence know nothing racist.

Instead of starting the day with offtrack thoughts such as, "I can't, Something that great, will never happen for me" and so forth in the "negative thinking arena", try starting the day with a positive outlook no matter what is going on in your life at this very moment. Yes, I am talking to you. ;)) Simply say, "I got this" and keep it moving!!! Human race have a wonderful and spectacular day!!!
P.S. Share this with someone and watch the effects. Look out world!!!

So Cindy....what have you done to promote peace? Do you know that there are alot of people in this world that would literally kill you as easily as look at you? Do you know that? Do you know that deep in your soul? Have you ever stared down the barrel of a gun, hoping he'd miss? How will you convince these people that peace is so important? They are convinced, in the pit of their soul, that you, and all like you, must die; you, your children, your parents, your siblings, everyone you know, must die and they are prepared to do it. What have you done to provide real lasting peace for your children?
