Just as Mercury moved into retrograde I was preparing myself a bad day. That said,  at 7am this morning I turned on the mac only to discover that Obama was back in the White House… YESSSS!!

Now, that is good news. While it’s still not going to be an easy ride for the Democrats the tone has been set. Obama needs to mobilise the people to move the program forward.

Also, we can give thanks that the offbeat 200-year-old White Horse prophecy has not come to fruition in the shape of the contender, former Mormon missionary and Bishop, Mitt Romney. The prophesy is a centerpiece of Mormon doctrine which predicts that when the United States Constitution is hanging by a thread that a great White Horse Savior will rescue the United States. Well, not this time baby!

The spirit of Hope prevails, as does “The American Dream”. This is how President Obama put it in his acceptance speech:

“I believe we can keep the promise of our founding, the idea that if you’re willing to work hard, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from or what you look like or where you love. It doesn’t matter whether you’re black or white or Hispanic or Asian or Native American or young or old or rich or poor, abled, disabled, gay or straight. (Cheers, applause.) You can make it here in America if you’re willing to try.”

Can I get a witness?

    My good friend Gerry Lyseight just sent me this message…. I’m sure he won’t mind me putting up… says it all….
    “I was up until 5.30 this morning channel-hopping and I’m feeling rough but relieved/happy. At one point, just before Obama’s victory speech, Sky had a split screen. 0n one side was the Republican wake: all white and mainly middle class, described on another channel as “pale, male and stale”; on the other was a jambalaya of black, white, young, old, male, female, gay, straight, Hispanic all busting moves to Tamla classics and ‘retha’s Respeck. As they say: Nuff said.” G
