Change


Another thing I discovered in the middle-east is the incredible effect that one country can have over the world... the effect that one man leading that country can have over the world.

It's crazy to think that decisions made by one human being over coffee with his advisers will decide the gap between the rich and poor in his own country, between war and peace in the middle-east, and the poverty of millions in the third world.

That's why I'm praying that all those folk whose forefathers left the shores of Ulster when our potatoes went bad will make Barack Obama the new US president tomorrow.

They'll be led in song by The Boss...



one of my all-time favourite tunes...

hey John...like the post. If the Boss was his running mate I'd emigrate.

Couple of weeks ago a friend phoned me from the Columbus OH rally just to let me hear bruce play. brilliant.

watched him sing this one the other day while justin webb reported for the bbc. I wanted webb to shut up.

If I had to vote for anybody it would be McCain as at least he is pro life.
Check Obama on you tube Obama says that the sermon on the mount is a reference to gay sex, and that abortion is ok in the case where a women makes a "mistake".

I would sum up Obama by saying he is an immoral carismatic who at times can almost seem magestic.
