International Women's Day is a Day for Action

President Obama and the First Lady recognized International Women’s Day earlier this week with a moving and sometimes funny ceremony in the East Room. The President said that “the story of America’s women, like the story of America itself, has had its peaks and valleys. But as one of our great American educators once said, if you drew a line through all the valleys and all the peaks, that line would be drawn with an upward curve. That upward curve—what we call progress—didn’t happen by accident.

Time to make Michelle Obama proud of America again

I am getting sick and tired of this healthcare debate. Healthcare reform without public option is breaking of all promises we were made and watering down the entire reform. I think at this point democrats should go it all alone if needed but et the best healthcare based on maximum competition and options for customers.

Well America, listen up. Now is your time to make Michelle Obama proud of being an american the second time, by passing this healthcare reform that Obama cares so much about. Remember the first time she was proud to being an american was when Obama had won his first political battle and winning Iowa. Right now is about  the time when Obama might be fighting one of the most important political battle of his presidency. So its time for us to make her proud to be an ammerican AGAIN.

The history of Black Americans is a glorious one.  It is a chronicle filled with much triumph, as well as many trials and tribulations.  Yet, many debate whether a month that commemorates people, pitch in color, defies reason.  Do the days dedicated to the acknowledgement of African American achievements divide us as a nation?  The answer, some say is a complex one.  Consider the thoughts of Columnist, Clarence Page of The Chicago Tribune.  Is Black History Month already history? Well, it depends.  Another view comes from a fellow Journalist and contributor to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Cynthia Tucker.  She is more emphatic in her evaluation.  Ms Tucker writes; Month robs blacks of part in U.S. history, It seems the subject, Black History Month, segregates opinions.
