1. Let's face the ugly truth!

I was out in a public place yesterday, when I overheard this disgusting girl telling this other person some pretty profane stuff about my Obama. I will not repeat them here, because her comments were so very repulsive. I lost total control and approached her, and after a few words between us, we came just a hairline from having an actual physical cat fight!

The issue of RACE has hell of a lot to do with a lot of Americans when it comes to Obama running for president!

Obama has withstood incredible odds against those who cannot fathom an African American becoming President of the U.S., and I'm POSITIVE more false accusations, and despicable things will be said about him from now until November!

2. McCain would like to see a man on Mars and said he "would be willing to spend more taxpayers' dollars" to continue the program but argued that NASA must do a better job of inspiring the American public, as when it sent a man to the moon in 1969.

"I am intrigued by a man on Mars and I think that it would excite the imagination of the American people if we can say, 'Hey, here's what it looks like,"
he said.

"We know that now, and here's what may be there and let's all join in that project. I think Americans would be very willing to do that."

Hey McCain, I for one am NOT willing at all. How about we first start working on PLANET EARTH with OUR TAX DOLLARS, before we start spending it on MARS!!
McCain would like to see a man on PLANET MARS!!

3. Remember a few months ago, I predicted an oncoming DEPRESSION? I pray I'm wrong, but I am now POSITIVE we'll experience a bad one very soon!

Also, many people of colour are also against their own colour, for whatever reason. Very irritating/frustrating!

1) The ugliness that you speak of is why Colin Powell did not run for president. He did not want to subject his family to such things. He could have easily have won the presidency if he were willing to lower himself to run.

2)The space race that put a man on the moon created a large number of useful technologies. The same can happen with a "Mars race". I would like to see a much expanded space program.

3) Lots of people have been predicting a recession for months. It is no surprise.

I was about to say everything you said about #2.

MY favorite thing to come out of the space race are cordless power tools all those cadmium battery operated devices. DeWalt tools, etc. Cell phone technology.

Balls of steel...
1. An African American has to have balls of steel to run for president, and Obama has them! :o)


2. I agree, but my concern for the time being, is our planet.

3. I didn't say RECESSION, I said DEPRESSION.

i know, i would love to hear a candidate openly discuss the fact that uneducated & unstable whites are the biggest challenge this country faces for it's own survival.

Warning: foul language ahead.
Unfortunately, there are still a lot of ignorant, stupid fucking people in this country who base one's qualifications for anything on the color of skin. Even more unfortunate, is that if there is one thing stupid, ignorant fucking people are good at, it's getting other stupid, ignorant fucking people and showing up en masse. Come election day, this is my greatest fear.

I believe in the Mars race, personally. The race to the moon led to many discoveries in all fields of technology, and I firmly believe the mars race will do the same thing.

And not to mention the morale booster it could be. We've become so used to being inundated with stories about how we fail or fall short as human beings, that we just need a pick me up. I believe landing a person on Mars could be just the thing to show us just what we can achieve, instead of reminding us of how we fail.

There a re a lot of issues to have fault with McCain about but NEVER discount scientific discovery of any kind. This isn't pork studies like the effects of lipstick on a dog. This is hard science. Finding water on Mars and analyzing it wuld be huge. It brings out more questions about sustainability and the possibility of life on other planets.

To me, the very idea of frontiers we might be able to explore only encourages the advancements of life.

You and everyone else here has misunderstood what I said about Mars.

I love anything that has to do with space, astronauts and planets, (and the Star Wars Yoda :o), but I feel that our planet is in dire need of help, and we should concentrate on her first.

We must join the force of the past (babyboomers) and new generation
Yes, we need to make the comparison between Robert Kennedy and Obama very strong in people's mind, and maybe the work of Dr. King, Bobby, and Barak, can led that social reform movement that our country needs so desperately.

I am all about a manned mission to Mars. Theoretically, we could mine the planets in our Solar System which would keep us from pulling it from Earth. Another thing is most of our technological breakthroughs (fire proof suits that our firemen wear for one) came from our research in space exploration. And thirdly, what if we find a substance on mars, or even the moon that we do not have on earth, and we can utilize it to make our lives better on this planet. There are a lot of possibilities and technologies that can come from these missions, but if we do not fund nor do them, we will never know how humanity is able to benefit.

There's a lolt of prejudice in our country, muxh more than one might expect. It will make the race for President much more difficult for Obama (my opinion).

I am shocked and greatlky disappointed to realize that various friends of ours have degrees of prejudice. One guy is afriad that African Americans want to take over the government and do something (he hasn't said what) to white people.

Others just say they won't vote for Obama and when i ask them what they don't like about him, they can't really tell me (which I believe is something racial).

Personally, Barak Obama seems to me to be a very intelligent, capable, likable guy who will make a wonderful president. Our country badly needs a change in direction from the Bush-led policies of the past 8 years. And steps need to be taken to change the Congress so they don't take big contributions from big busines and from big business lobbyists.

I am so glad that Barack is running. It will be a great test of the American public to see how many can overcome their prejudice.

Whenever I hear someone say they don't like Obama, I make it a point of asking them in a very interestede vocie; What is it about him you don't like.

Savanah is there any thing that Obama has said or stands for that you might have issue with? You know he is just a man and he makes mistakes just like me, nobody is perfect.
You Know I Voted for Hillery and my vote had nothing to do with Race!
Now I know some people have issue with his race but they are the same people that will find a fault in what ever they need to, to make there Point. You know where you stand why let people like that get to you?
Just try and remember there are a lot more people out here that do not hold a persons race against them I do Not and I know you do Not.

(1) That's the mentality that makes me think Obama won't win. Hillary has shown that many people won't vote for Obama simply because he's black. And McCain is going to play the "more experienced" card on him to paint him as an inexperienced [black] male running for president. So, that just makes matters worse for him in my opinion. It's going to be one dirty campaign, and an interesting race.

(2) What's wrong with the planet that you would like changed?

Also, a lot of the new technology that will develope in the MARS Program could also benefit this planet. Think about it, if we learn how to develope life on MARS, how could that not serve to benefit life on this planet?

(3) What you're seeing now is a correction in the economy because Hillary is out of the presidential race. The economy will be very volatile until the new president is elected.

That fuckin' race card pops up too much.
Unfortunately that's how it is with a lot of folks that wanted Hillary to be the Democratic candidate. Most of them may possibly support McCain. Not only that, Obama's considered "elitist" amongst a lot of the white blue collar demographic. ("Elitist" seems to be misused these days.)

It's stupid, really.

I agree with most of the posters here who say that a mission to Mars could ultimately serve the needs of our planet.

I am very excited about a Mars project, but not as a tax burden. I think our leaders who are excited about the prospect should however spend time encouraging support of astronomy and space exploration. I encourage think tanks on how to fund it without using tax money, how to make it happen for less money needed in donations and grants.


As to the other, it is sad that bigotry still runs amuck. Both in the hatred and in the blackmailing (you don't support Obama? you must be a racist!)

Try not to get into fights love. There are a lot more idiots out there than you.

We need to go to space and beyond. The technology we will invent along the way to Mars is what will save the Earth and in the long run, the human race.

Re: Save the human race?
Pretty paradoxical to think we can save ourselves from ourselves. In other words, if we're the problem, then how can we possibly be the solution?

So, why in the world should I buy into the ideology that humanity is the force that is plaguing this planet?

Because, if proclaiming that humanity is the problem, then isn't population control a more practical solution given the magnitude of taking on such a task as developing life on another planet with a completely diferent ecosystem, assuming said planet even has an ecosystem, or environment? Afterall, the idea that we can cultivate Mars to sustain life as it is sustained on this planet is fantasy/science-ficiton. It has taken life billions of years to evolve into this ecosystem that nurtures our existence.

Not to mention, there are minds that think the moon plays a major role in the development of life on this planet. In other words, it provides a certain balance to our dna structure as well as all other organisms on this planet. It has a lot to do with the gravitational field. But even further more, there are those who think the magnetic field of our planet plays a major role as well, and Mars doesn't have such a magnetic field nor does it have a moon.

But, the real question isn't whether we can develope life on Mars. It's whether or not we can develope an ecosystem comparable to ours on a foreign planet. And the idea of that happening within our lifetime is very minute.

Maybe we should worry about taking care of life, and not just ourselves?
