Obama's, the best I've heard

This was a true statement written  & verified on "Fact or Fiction and Snoops" .   A good read . She hit it right on.

The below summary of Barack and Michelle Obama's 5- year reign in the White House is by far the best I've ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head. And it took a black female reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man's account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obamas is penned by a well- known journalist of color?


BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!
(Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles .)

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obamas. Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obamas? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."

Onondaga Nation Elder on the Sacredness of Mother Earth

Onondaga Nation Elder on the Sacredness of Mother Earth from Bill Moyers.com on Vimeo.It is a source of wonderment when a reporter asks the questions he does with a sense of wonderment and awe. As if this is the first he has heard of this way of relating to Mother Earth. It is no wonder that most of the world's human population are running around with a "Sky is Falling" fear every day! The reporters are so important in forming the civil views of society and if they are getting it wrong (which they certainly are) then we all are getting it wrong, unless we teach ourselves a higher WAY! Onondaga Nation Clan Mother Audrey Shenandoah, who passed away two years ago, spoke with Bill in 1991 about her personal kinship with nature and the Onondaga Nation's concerns for our Earth in a society that "feels dominant over the elements of the creation."

SUFFERING

"Close the door on old, painful memories. Close the door on old hurts, old self-righteous forgiveness. You might take an incident in the past where there was pain and hurt–something that is hard for you to forgive or look at. Ask yourself: "How long do I want to hold onto this? How long do I want to suffer because of something that happened in the past?" Now see a stream in front of you and take this old experience, this hurt, this pain, and put the whole incident in the stream and see it begin to dissolve and drift away until it disappears. You have the ability to let go. You are free." - Louise Hay. Note: Most of us have been hurt terribly by those we loved with all our hearts. This creates a formidable pain in your soul! Those in my own family have created such pain for me out of jealousy, animosity and just plain rebellion against authority. What do you do with this will have a large impact on your life if you cannot let it go. I'm not a big fan of forgi…

Alberta Tar Sands

I am a bit reticent to share this because I know the need for oil is serious! However I know how beautiful Alberta is and can't reconcile this in my head. I would ask you to put your home in the center of this and then condone what is very obviously total destruction of the environment. My people come from here and in their interest and in the interest of the world I strongly object to this short sighted, coffer filling, Native Spirit-Land destructive project. Please share! - Grant RedhawkPlease visit http://www.climate-change-guide.com/t... for more information on Canada's oil sands.
Tar Sands in Alberta is Canada's worst environmental disaster. Please share this video with your friends and family in order to help spread the word. Together we can make a difference, together we can stop the destruction.
