The dead are not seen in company of the living.

Senator Jim Bunning, Republican of Kentucky, is neither god nor psychic.

More sad news in American politics. Ashley Todd from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, a young female volunteer for the McCain campaign, was charged for filing a false police report. She claimed that she was attacked and sexually assaulted by a Black man because she had a McCain/Palin bumper sticker on the back of her car. C’est du […]

I watched the second presidential debate between Senator Obama and Senator McCain. I have to say that John McCain had a better debate tonight compared to the first debate. But once again his reasons for being president are lacking: political experience, experience in foreign affairs, and the most important his military experience. Senator Obama showed […]

A man’s strength is not in not falling but in overcoming the fall.

Lately, I have been following all the news about the 2008 presidential campaign. Senator Obama who had a big lead on the polls over John McCain is losing his lead. The race is getting tight. Within the Democratic party, some fatalists are suggesting that Senator Obama made a bad choice by selecting Joe Biden instead […]
