Please don't. Fephisto (talk) 14:09, 2 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Oh yes! Looks like the U.S. is almost ready to join the club of civilized western states. Congratulations! Now you only need to abolish death penalty as well, and you're all set. 17:42, 5 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Swine flu[edit]

I'm getting sick of this swine flu crap. It only really hurts the exceptionally young or old, it's just a normal flu that you can /easily/ survive without medical treatment. And Obama's giving great advice on how to prevent it! Wash your hands. It's very simple. This is not a "pandemic." Just any regular flu kills even more than this. It's only a problem in Mexico because their country doesn't have excellent medicinal practice or movements to keep the air and people clean.

i wonder how could president obama solve all of these problems?

In case you've missed all the news, swine flu does not "only really hurts the exceptionally young or old" - quite the opposite, in fact, most serious and fatal cases in Mexico so far have been of young, healthy adults. That's what is nasty about it. Go read the article on WP or something, so that at least you know what you're talking about. 03:24, 6 May 2009 (UTC)[reply]

The Problem With Waterboarding[edit]

            Waterboarding is a reprehensible and unethical act that should not to tolerated in any country.  To say its not torture is like saying child molestation isn't wrong.  Waterboarding in my opinion is the devils way of spreading his evil tactics.  
         I have to say I'm extremly disappointed with President Obamas' comment in his fist 100 day speech.  Coming from a man who is all about right just doesn't make any sense to say.  I believe waterboarding should be banned all over the world for reasonable purposes and maniacal reasons all the same.

Signed yours truly, Future President Dennzon M. Winley
