Single Sisters Speak Out

The Modern Life of the Single Sister

Bring The Boys Home October 12, 2009

Filed under: Single Sisters On... — FlawedBeauty @ 9:00 pm

Just a moment ago I was listening to the O’Reilly Show on FOX…Of course he was going in on President Obama and how he is no better than George Bush was at winning the war in Afghanistan…Blah, blah and blah…Then he said..NATO is involved and only the Netherlands, Great Britain (and one other country) are sending their soldiers out to help the world so again it falls on the USA to keep the world safe.

Stop the presses!  It’s up to the USA to keep the world safe?  I think not.  There are numerous countries around the world who have threatened the US and they have small countries that they protect and we need to keep the world safe?

So I thought about this for a moment and while I would love to bring my future children into a safe world, that won’t do me one bit of good if I have to bring them into a war-torn country and that’s exactly what we have.  We have children being beaten to death in our streets and while the children in Afghanistan and Iraq are important, the children in America deserve a chance to live in a safe country too.  Most of the population cannot afford the health care to keep them alive and healthy, but we are sure to go running to Africa to offer assistance to people with AIDS.  There’s no reason we shouldn’t be able to stop the AIDS epidemic here in the US.

I can understand political criticisms, but I think it is deplorable for people to criticize the POTUS for the decisions that he has made regarding his country.   As a matter of fact…last Friday when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize many people were disappointed and upset.  Many wondered how could someone who had only been President 9 days on the final day of nomination win? Could it be because many people are aware of the fact Mr. Obama has a fairly decent plan of bringing some sense of peace to the Middle East?

And is it just me but after Bush isn’t it totally unfair to only give Obama 9 months before we deconstruct his original intent? However, are there any programs you wish he would move forward with? He’s started on healthcare and credit card companies, but what about student loans or the war? How ya’ll feeling at the beginning of fiscal year 2010?

  1. The U.S needs to stop butting in the affairs of other countries until we can get our own stuff straightened out. From my observation, and I’m not in any way political, but it seems that a great number of them don’t even appreciate having our assistance.

    We need to take care of home.

    I know nothing about the other nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize but I think it’s great that Obama won. He’s the first BLACK president…. Why can’t people just let him be great?

  2. @FB “How ya’ll feeling at the beginning of fiscal year 2010?”

    we not there yet …are we?

    “Why can’t people just let him be great?”

    @ Sunny..because people like to regurgitate the same old negative sentiments that the rest of the naysayers have. When it comes to the criticism of the NB prize, I haven’t heard one compelling or original critique..everyone’s beating the same drum on “its too early”..”he doesn’t deserve it”..im bored by all that.

    Morning.

    @Ms. Nicki

    Absolutely. They won’t let Obama be great because they’re afraid he’s going to outshine them.

    *sidenote* I have a guest post up today on another site…so I’ma be a mixed bag today 😉

    re: other nominees

    And you won’t know really…Nobel’s are kinda like that.

    @CBG

    October 1st marks the beginning usually…some also start in July.

    And CBG it is early, but the Nobel is actually based more on potential and to give the person a positive push in the right direction. I think it is safe to say that other countries see our own president as more deserving than most Americans.

    (Do not judge me for the song.) LOL….1968 is the year.

  4. “October 1st marks the beginning usually…some also start in July.”

    Thats right..i was thinking calendar.

    @Comeback: this is true.. I keep hearing over and over, it’s too soon, what has he done so great… and again, hello, the first BLACK president. Let’s remember our ancestors people.. they never would’ve dreamed this.

    @CBG

    I done went Mayan on yawl…speaking of …has anyone read how they are sick of the whole world will end in 2012 prediction?

    I think we need to get over it.

    @Nicki…

    I think you’re right..they would have NEVER EVER EVER dreamed of it…and that’s what makes it such a great thing.

    @Jaci: I haven’t heard it… I really don’t understand why people INSIST on predicting the end of the world. It cannot be done. But then again, if you aren’t religious, one wouldn’t believe that.

    “I think you’re right..they would have NEVER EVER EVER dreamed of it…and that’s what makes it such a great thing.”

    Exactly!

  8. LaPreghiera Says:

    They only think the world will end in 2012 because Obama might get re-elected for another term. Personally I did not vote for him, but neither do I have time to sit and criticize although Nobel Peace Prize does seem to come way out of left field…
