As there is one political party in our country that seems to attract such belligerent propaganda junkies,I was certain that he was just your plain vanilla racist who had learned a big word. I've learned not to assume anything, and I wanted him to show his hand after such an inflammatory remark. Sure enough, he was talking about Obama. I wanted to stay stone faced and say something appropriate, but the reflex of laughter just poured out of me. It was like the polarity of the jerk magnet had been suddenly reversed, and to my great pleasure he disappeared across the room faster than a speeding bullet. Today is a good day to think about outcomes, to cherish our home planet Earth, and to have compassion for ourselves and others. Take heart, be creative and no matter what your political or religious proclivities are, rejoice in the many gifts we receive.
