Recently I found a very interesting news station on the internet. It's a little underground but they had an interesting take on the after math of Obama's election. He's been the elect for less than a week and already his presidency is taking a toll on the nation. Watch the video and see for yourself:

They've also discussed some of the aggressive nature of Obama's attacks on McCain during the election.

Then again, they also discus the challenges of being an elderly politicians by citing a specific incident with McCain:

HAHAHHAHA.

The Onion. Yeah its funny. I remember reading an article on it about how psychologists have come up with completely wacky names for certain emotions because "the existing ones don't describe them well enough".

Were we going to have an extended discussion on The Onion though?

I hate people that make remarks like this. For one most of the time people that make this type of remark are a little on the Slower Side, they Make remarks like this because they lack any skill to read, write, or critically think for them selfs.

You should see some of the vids they had on McCain. McCain, "Obama's not experienced." News Man, "But McCain's already experienced enough because he's old."

*Face palm,* I kind of realized that right about the time the news-lady said, “Some people just wish they’d die.”

I’m not taking it seriously, I was just trying to get people riled and then break the tension by making them laugh.

And that is the reason why when electing a leader, you never elect one whose IQ is low...

They might think the onion's news is actually real, like the one where voting machine dre 700 being elected the US president...

Most of the white voted favorably for McCain and during the elections, the widespread display of racism shown to Obama and yet for Obama being a minority to win the largest seat in such a country is truly historic and something of a complete bewilderment to American including the black and even minorities in other parts of the world. Have you tried reading newspapers from other parts of the world?? Open your eyes and look around the world and you know how much everyone is amazed at what the Americans have decided upon despite the type of country she is.

PS1: Most of the people i talk about that Obama won because most blacks voted favorably to Obama, but this election show most whites vote for McCain with whites having 73% of total population while blacks only 14% of total population.

PS2: On a weird note, i did a glass booth survey and found Ralph Nader to be the 2nd closest candidate closest to my issues.
