So I was reading the paper the other day and a guy called Barack Obama by his middle name which is Hussein, and called him a terrorist basically. Really? Because of his middle name? Oh boy I guess I have to jump upon my soapbox and rant on the topic again. Yes, his name is Hussein. Yes, he has been photographed in traditional Kenyan garb, but does this mean he is a terrorist? No. It means he comes from an International background and is proud of his heritage. To be ridiculed for it is the real terrorist act. I have many friends, alot will vote for Obama, some will not. But the reason they are not voting for him has nothing to do with his name, his beliefs just don't mesh with theirs, and that is fine. He is the candidate for me, but maybe not you and I respect that. What's the reason people make fun of McCain? Because he is old, and he is. People have called Obama a terrorist and questioned his patriotism which is sad. Read his story, his books and you will realize that he and his background are truly American, through and through.

When you see the man pictured above many words come to mind. Strong, brave, intelligent, eloquent. But one word you would not expect to see is terrorist. Well according to the United States, Mandela and other members of the ANC, the group who was wrongfully imprisoned during the time of apartheid were all on the US terror watch list. Wow. You would think that congress would have fixed this years ago, but we've been too busy trying to find out if baseball players balls are shrinking. Glad to see we have our priorities in order.
