Thank God he said GAYS must be allowed in the militiary - a civil rights issue, and EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK for WOMEN!!
Thank God we have a president who gets it — an intelligent, moral, reasonable and compassionate man who is humble enough to see his own faults clearly. At first I thought he had been threatened by the Powers-that-Be. I almost believed the conspiracy theorists who believed Obama had been threatened with assassination by a triumvirate consisting of the military industrial complex, the banking empirate and the pharmaceutical mafia. Rumor has it according to Norman Solomon - that the Military industrial complex was responsbile for the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., JFK and Bobby.
But his State of the Union speech gave me hope that Obama is finally seeing that he can't negotiate with Republicans. A man is worth nothing if he doesn't stand for what's right. Bullies can't win and might does not make right.
