Hotel on a corner of bitter

So with some reluctance, I decided to read it when I found a copy for thirty cents. While the book was not my usual fare, I found Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet a touching and interesting look back in time. Not only does the book provide a compelling story, but it provides a reminder that compassion is a powerful force to heal personal and communal wounds and injustices. A particularly striking scene was the Japanese families burning anything that might tie them to the Japanese Imperial government in an alleyway behind Jackson street.

Thinking about this guy and his cronies being in complete charge of our country in less than five months. Barack Obama could very well bring our country downhill in a hurry — politically, economically and socially. So why do I find him so frightening as a possible president? First of all is the cult-like aura surrounding him, which I have never seen the likes of with any other candidate.

Some criticism, yes, but nothing like what McCain, Palin and even Biden have received from the media. Few dare to make jokes about him and the liberal media journalists are all fairly decent to him, while at the same time going out of their way to make Sarah Palin look like a pathetic VP choice.

Hollywood treats him almost like one of their own. And many blacks are excited about the possibility of having one of their own in the White House. I can fully understand why many of these African-Americans would be excited about Barack Obama. If a minority candidate were to hold the same beliefs and convictions that I have, I would happily endorse them too.

Think that this tendency will lessen once Obama gets into office? Also scary is the questionable associations that Obama has had through the years. We have no idea how that will affect him once he gets into office.

Think about his friendship with Bill Ayres, for instance. Same goes with Jeremiah Wright, who ranted for years against whites and America in general, from a church pulpit, of all places.

And the thought of Obama being commander-in-chief of our armed forces — If you are a military member, that thought should turn the blood in your veins to ice. If Obama is president, the military will be a very low priority to him and he will restrict funding for it. Obama has said that he will meet with the leaders of hostile world nations with no pre-conditions.

He wants to completely nuke our nuclear weapons programs. He will try to rely on diplomacy and peace talks to resolve conflicts — and there is a time and a place for these things, but I want a president who will not hesitate to use aggressive force should another nation pose a threat to us.

And do you really think that Obama will help our economy, especially given his skimpy track record? Some people think that he will bring change to America.

When the financial crisis began a week ago, who was the one who was willing to temporarily suspend his campaign and actually try to DO something about it? Obama seemed rather clueless and kind of just waited around to see what would happen next. Perhaps he missed his calling and should be an entertainer instead.

I want to see a president that truly IS proud of being an American and is not afraid or ashamed to show it. John McCain, I have no question, does. The trouble with Barack Obama is that there are just too many unknowns about him.
