Prince Barack Decides to be King and Banishes Rev Falstaff


I Know thee not, old man . . .

When thou dost hear I am as I have been

Approach me, and thou shalt be as thou wast,

The tutor and feeder of my riots.

Till then I banish thee, on pain of death.
. . .
(Henry IV, Part 2 5.5. 45, 60-63)



(CNN) -- Sen. Barack Obama said he is "outraged" by comments his former minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, made Monday at the National Press Club and "saddened by the spectacle."


Sen. Barack Obama on Tuesday denounced comments made by the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

"I have been a member of Trinity Church since 1992. I have known Rev. Wright for almost 20 years," he said at a news conference in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. "The person I saw yesterday is not the person I met 20 years ago."

Obama said he is outraged by Wright's remarks that seemed to suggest the U.S. government might be responsible for the spread of AIDS in the black community, and his equation of some American wartime efforts with terrorism.

"What particularly angered me was his suggestion somehow that my previous denunciation of his remarks were somehow political posturing," said Obama, who added that Wright had shown "little regard for me" and seemed more concerned with "taking center stage."

Obama said Wright's comments were not only "divisive and destructive," but they also "end up giving comfort to those who prey on hate.

  2. Obama Says He's Outraged by Ex-Pastors Comments

    Seeking to quell the political damage over the controversy, Senator Barack Obama described remarks made by the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. as “appalling.”

    He seems to be a politician like all the others - i.e. not so much transparent but rather attempting to be a mirror simply reflecting what you want him to be.

  16. So there Obama was, with 15% of the US electorate thinking he was a Muslim.

    Now he'll get tonnes of air time, to denounce his Baptist minister and reaffirm his believe in Christ.

    It'll swing those that agreed with his ideology, but objected to his "Islamic religion".

  24. There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do do not want to lose their jobs.

    Doug, you can only see the saucers from below, everybody knows that.

    I heard a piece of astounding and heartening news today, displacing all this political stuff.

    The gals at Conservation said a steelhead had been discovered in the little creek that flows through Troy, Idaho, a little bedroom community from Moscow. home of one cedar mill, and a high school and one tavern. This is truly amazing. They were amazed. It shows that some of the recovery efforts are working. I didn't know they even ever made it there in the past. There has been much work along streamways and along creeks, which is why I was there. I am getting some free trees planted, thanks to USDA, and you taxpayers. I have to comply with some stuff.

    The gals at Farm Services said they hadn't heard anything yet about farmers being able to break out of CRP contracts, cause the new Farm bill hasn't passed.

    Guys, I appreciate your coments, but I have to try and keep this site rated PG or thereabouts. So I've removed all comments which contain a certain word and this is no reflection on the commenters.

    In general it's good to have debate, but I would like to appeal to commenters to keep the discussion free of personal invective and on point.

    Also it may help if we personally limited our comments to about three or four per post. I will adhere to very same rules myself. Please feel free to call me out if I violate my own understanding.

    So please: on point, sarcasm allowed but no insults, three or four comments per commenter per post. I will keep to those rules myself.

    Perhaps if there is a consensus among a majority of posters that someone brings absolutely nothing to the party except sock puppetry and uninformed devil's advocacy, that person could be disappeared by management, which would negate the necessity for either sarcasm or name-calling. Disappearing such a person would also result in threads shrinking by 30-50%, which streamlining is generally considered to be a Good Thing in the 21st Century.

    I got hundreds of seedlings from the U of Idaho one time, Doug, and planted them, worked my ass off, not one lived, not one. Moles. I followed the instructions to the letter. Couldn't figure out what happened. Finally a guy I know who farms out there and has more experience in this type of stuff, says, moles. Got to have bigger trees. These were maybe just 3, 4, 5 inches or so. Sometimes it helps to know what you are doing. I was feeding moles:) Thought I was planting trees.

    I hope these ladies know what they are doing. Since they haven't planted them as of today, I am going to call them tomorrow.

    Glad to hear yours lived.

    Ultimately, Sharpton said, "Barack Obama's not running against Jeremiah Wright. He's running against Mrs. Clinton and later, hopefully, John McCain.

    And when we choose between him and them, even if we disagree on the Rev. Wright controversy, I don't think it changes our vote on whether we think he'd be better for all Americans than his opponents."

  69. The tender to build and operate the Negev solar power station at Ashelim is drawing international alternative energy companies to Israel. Sources inform ''Globes'' that Germany's Solar Millennium AG (XETRA: S2M), one of the world's top three solar energy companies, plans to participate in the $650-700 million tender.

    Solar Millennium is considering collaborating with some of the Israeli companies already participating in the tender, and recently met representatives of Israel Corp. (TASE: ILCO) to discuss a possible joint bid in the tender.

    Israel Corp. subsidiary IC Green Energy Ltd. (ICG), run by president and CEO Dr. Yom-Tov Samia, is a bidder in the tender. ICG declined to comment on the report.

    This is the moonbattery of the Right. Obama has brought down the towering issues of Reverend Wright's racist hatred, and his decades of support for him, in a controlled implosion. In this post 4-29 era, neither Hillary nor McCain will ever able to bring up the issue again, because their thinking will come across as so 4-28.

  73. Grazie per avere tradotto la mia poesia la rondine ,io non so scrivere in inglese e lo parlo poco e male,ma questo dimostra che se c'e' la volonta'si puo' capire lo stesso e' stato un bel gesto.

    le parole che noi a volte anche cosi' innavertitamente diciamo, non sempre sono prese in considerazione ,sono solo parole, ma una parola puo' significare molto puo'cambiare gli eventi della storia puo' decidere il futuro puo' ricordare il passato, la scelta che ne faremo sara' solo la nostra o di chi ci ha consigliato a dirla quando guardo il mondo, mi accorgo sempre di piu' di tutte quelle differenze che ci accomunano gli uni agli altri forse mi potrete chiamare ingenua o stupida ma il punto di riflessione e' tale che a volte mi basta guardare con occhi diversi pe capire meglio e forse intuire cose che nemmeno io immaginavo.
    la cosa strana e' che quando ero piu' piccola ero una peste,(non che io sia diversa oggi)ogni mattina che mi svegliavo dovevo pensare bene a chi avrei dovuto fare attenzione, volevano tutti menarmi e le ho prese da tutti cosi' quando qualcuno si arrabbiava con me dicevo mettiti in fila e li succedeva una cosa strana ,dicevano per lopiu' ci rinuncio, e poi nasceva un'amicizia perche' oggi dovrebbe essere diverso?????
    cio' che piu' a volte ci accomuna ci divide e se analizziamo il contesto dove a volte succedono tante cose non e' poi cosi' diverso da contesti ben piu' seri.....
    quando ancora mi capita , vado a montare a cavallo e corro, corro, e solo li insieme a quando guardo il mare mi sento totalmente libera,non sono i soldi , non sono le star, ma le cose semplici
