Important Women's Health Issue:

Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
Do you suffer from shyness?
Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or
pharmacist about Margaritas.

Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident
about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of your
shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do
just about anything. You will notice the benefits of Margaritas almost
immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any
obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness
and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many
talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start living, with
Margaritas.

Margaritas may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or
nursing should not use Margaritas. However, women who wouldn't mind
nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to tr…

On Obama's nomination...

Although Obama's nomination was a complete surprise, even to him, we can not forget that his presidency has done so much for the American people. We the US can show the rest of the world the possibility of resolving our countries racial conflicts --seeing that a people who were once slaves--are now free enough to become president of one of the greatest nations in the world! That’s amazing.

Obama on the nobel Peace Prize

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT ON WINNING THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

Rose Garden

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Well, this is not how I expected to wake up this morning. After I received the news, Malia walked in and said, "Daddy, you won the Nobel Peace Prize, and it is Bo's birthday!" And then Sasha added, "Plus, we have a three-day weekend coming up." So it's good to have kids to keep things in perspective.

I am both surprised and deeply humbled by the decision of the Nobel Committee. Let me be clear: I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments, but rather as an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations.

To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who've been honored by this prize -- men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.

But I also know that this prize reflects the k…

Comments on the Post-Governance Era

It is no doubt that the world has changed in the past year-year and half with the financial crisis and Obama taking office. Their is a renewed call for public administrators who are responsive and professional at their jobs. The question I ask is how much of this new era will be like the New Deal Era and or how will it be different? In terms of better government regulation over creating subsidy programs or the engagement of new fields to improve the economy like the green jobs movement, etc.

Also the bigger questions that also comes up is how the rest of the world sees the United States. And how the US will behave in a more equal global system. Like it or not, the rest of the world saw what happens when the markets prevailed (over past 30 years) or were poorly managed by the state and the disastrous economic and personal effects of that. They may opt out of the free market economies all together, which is exactly opposite of what the US has been trying to encourage for the past 100…

Obama on Unity and Equality

Unity is the great need of the hour - the great need of this hour. Not because it sounds pleasant or because it makes us feel good, but because it's the only way we can overcome the essential deficit that exists in this country.

I'm not talking about a budget deficit. I'm not talking about a trade deficit. I'm not talking about a deficit of good ideas or new plans.

I'm talking about a moral deficit. I'm talking about an empathy deficit. I'm taking about an inability to recognize ourselves in one another; to understand that we are our brother's keeper; we are our sister's keeper; that, in the words of Dr. King, we are all tied together in a single garment of destiny.

We have an empathy deficit when we're still sending our children down corridors of shame - schools in the forgotten corners of America where the color of your skin still affects the content of your education.

We have a deficit when CEOs are making more in ten minutes than…
