when words fail me, which is often, I paint. When words work for me and are available on time, I am surprised.

The Writing on The Wall

I hear it, the writing on the wall.
Its a sickening rumble underfoot. Five per cent lead, and stolen elections,
and then thisRacist Bullshit

I was told the story today about a man who was running for the Senate a few years back. The man is black (well he's probably more a mixture of sienna, umber, white and cadmium red, but I couldn't say for sure).I do not remember his name. If you know me very well, you know I suck at remembering names, even yours. According to the polls, he had a ten point lead, it was a slam dunk- Until- the people went behind the voter's curtain, and pulled the lever for the white guy. They just could not fathom a black leader. STUPID!

I hear it, and it makes me sick, the 5 point lead, the racist slander, the oops- we didn't mean to say that- IGNORANCE, is not bliss for those of us watching.
God please hear my prayers, please, please, please, strike those racists down , and hurry up. Yes, all of them. It's your law you know, the law of karma, Ok, call it "do unto others. . ." or even better "What you Reap, You Shall Sow"
Reaping hatred and murder and oppression, what is wrong with these people?

Ignorance? Or a different worldview? It might surprise you that some very intelligence, educated folks hold racist views.

I mean, not me. I'm just playing devil's advocate. I'm just saying that some folks view life differently from you and that doesn't mean they're "stupid." Perhaps they're stupid in a broader, enlightened sense...

It's funny that women are the only group that really gets more liberal as they age.

Regardless, I just cast my absentee ballot for Obama. And I vote in Virginia.

What you resist persists, gets bigger. We need to think about what we want and why we want it and not give attention to anything else.

I am imagaining Obama's kick ass inauguration speech. Won't that be something? Can you see it?

I know you can see it.

M@- Intelligent Racist is an oxymoron but you are very smart for casting the good vote. Wait- are you calling me old? that's not very smart either.

Michelle O- Thank you, off the ceiling and breathing. Yep, I can see it, hear, feel it, brighter and brighter- :)
