US President Barack Obama holds an executive order related to the closing of the "War on Terror" prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, after signing it during a ceremony in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, DC. Obama Thursday ordered the closure of Guantanamo Bay prison within a year and banned torture in a dramatic repudiation of his predecessor George W. Bush's anti-terror policies.

The president’s names who were said to have had a black heritage, were listed as Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Harding, and Coolidge. It is said that one of them actually destroyed the papers and documents, that depicted him as having any black heritage.
Abraham Lincoln was our 16th president from 1861 to 1865. J. A. Rogers quotes Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks, as saying that Abraham Lincoln was the illegitimate son of an African man. William Herndon, Lincoln's law partner, said that Lincoln had very dark skin, coarse hair and also stated that Lincoln's mother was from an Ethiopian tribe. All of which I not sure has been documented. In Herndon's book titled "The Hidden Lincoln" he also says that Thomas Lincoln could not have been Abraham Lincoln's father as reported. It being because of the fact that Lincoln's father was sterile from childhood mumps and was later castrated as well. Lincoln's presidential running opponents are said to have made cartoon drawings showing him as a Negro and calling him "Abraham Africanus the First."
If in fact this is the truth, then the hype of Obama being the 1st black president, is just that........hype. I find it curious, that the one man that made the "Emancipation Proclamation", was in fact as such. I wonder if there could be history that has been left out of documentation, for such a purpose?

Some say that Obama spent millions to get into the White House, and as we watched the Inauguration yesterday, we could see that it hadn't stopped there. Millions were being spent for the gala occasion. Now that he has gained the well sought for position, I wonder if the spending will decrease and show us a different Presidential attitude, or will he keep up the good spending and use the funds, he tells us to save. I'm still not sure this will be what we are looking for. I'm at a wait and see stance.

All the fans will get their parties, under way on Super Bowl day, and be rooting for their favorite team to win.......
I'm already on 2 pots, where I can win some money if the game ends in a certain score. That's probably the only reason I will watch it.........as I did last night, when that Baltimore player got hurt.......I usually wait until the last few minutes to watch and see how the score turns out.

Hamas offered Israel an immediate week long truce Sunday, hours after Israel silenced its guns and grounded its aircraft, but the Islamic militant group conditioned long-term quiet on a complete Israeli withdrawal from the territory. Militant rockets peppered southern Israel ahead of the Palestinian truce offer, threatening to re-ignite three weeks of violence that killed more than 1,200 Palestinians — more than half of them civilians, Gaza officials said — and turned the streets of Hamas-ruled Gaza into battlegrounds. They aren't in total agreement, yet...........they want more involved in the truce.
America is gearing up and getting ready for the inauguration of it's first black president.
This is a traditional train ride taken by the Presidents on Inauguration Day. It is a momentous occasion, one that will start a new era in American history and hopefully a trend toward economic restructure.

If you ask me, there's not enough car between me and that big semi, that's in the lane next to me. But I guess you didn't ask me, and there's the issue..........I'm a small part of the public, who will always find something wrong with things. So, here lies the problem. Finding a car to suit the majority of the public and to hell with people like me. I can't blame the car makers, they have the government and the EPA down their throats. I imagine, before this decade is over, we will find that many things are going to become very different, and we'll just have to live with them.

What's even worse, is the "porno" that has been placed in comment areas on blogs. These blogs have no intention of exploiting such graphic material. It would be nice if we could block these idiots, from placing that crap, on our comments. I actually had one website that would put porno directly onto my blog, without my approval. I would have to go to it every few minutes to remove the stuff, until I finally figured out how to keep them from posting it on my blog. Still they place it in the comments area, and I have to keep spamming it. I guess you have to take the good with the bad, but damned them.........for their crap!

It's happened again and this time to my car. The people across the street can't seem to watch where their backing the cars/trucks out to. I was trying to leave my property, and heard the truck across the street, release his brake and put it into gear..........he started backing out on me, not even looking. Try as I could to get out of his way, I just couldn't do it in time...........This is the 3rd vehicle accident this household has contributed to me and my family's vehicles'. My poor maibox is just about destroyed by these people as well..........they have back into it so many times, i's leaning over in the ground..........
Asheton, who'd stayed on the periphery in a variety of punk and hard rock bands over the years between Stooges tours of duty, it was especially sweet: the man, after all, ranked 29 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
I was never into this type of music and I guess it took the "far out" people to really get into this kind of thing..........yet every time a musician, passes on, part of the American/World music heritage goes with them........I'm sure he will be missed like so many others......

Investigators are going over evidence and narrowing their search down to a number of unidentified acquaintance's of Hilton. Security camera footage showed a person dressed in a hoodie and wearing gloves. A perp entered through an unlocked door sometime between the evening hours of Dec. 19 and 4 a.m. the next morning and immediately located Hilton's secret stash of baubles—which included necklaces, watches, rings and some family heirlooms. Hilton, who was partying on the night of the break-in, since given police a list of people whom she thinks might be behind it. Last month's $2 million jewel heist from the hotel heiress' mansion causes belief that the burglar had a good grasp of the floor plans, knowing exactly where Hilton hid her valuables, prompting speculation it may have been an inside job.
