All I going to say about this sister, is you don’t just pop up from nowhere to talk to the POTUS unannounced... Either Security will get you or they will be fired on the spot!...This would have been an insult if Ms.Lee would had managed to get any closer...Now Ms. Lee said that she is a Catholic priestess “with St. Juliana’s in Fullerton,” and that there are 60 other Catholic priestesses worldwide...Well that's not what Father Paul Gins of St. Juliana’s said....The father says that Lee is a member of the parish and a “well-meaning person,” but that “she does not represent the church. We do not recognize women priests, and haven’t for 2,000 years.”Lee said that her duties as a minister involve consecrating the host, and ministering to the disabled and elderly in convalescent homes...The way I see it Ms.Lee is a black woman who is fighting again the civil rights of other people there's no other way to put it...I might not agree with the term same sex marriage but I support the rights for everyone to have the same civil rights.

Last night someone asked whether President Obama race had played a role in his actions following his election as the first African-American president. The President answer that his administration, “has been dominated by me trying to figure out how we’re going to fix the economy, and that affects black, brown, and white.” The president said “while there was “justifiable pride” in the historic step of his election. That lasted about a day. . . . Right now the American people are judging me exactly the way I should be judged. Which, Are we taking the steps to improve the financial markets, create jobs, get businesses to reopen, keep America safe? And that’s what I’ve been spending my time thinking about.” This is truly what Dr. King envisioned. Barack Obama will be judged by the content of his character and not the color of his skin. It is his character and his ability to lead that got him elected to the presidency. We want the president to be judged on results. While his presidency is indeed historic it must still be productive. So the president’s response to this question was dead-on right now the color that affects all Americans is green, and the lack of it. So that is what the president will and should be judged on.

A longtime Pentagon policy bars the media from covering the arrival of coffins carrying the military's dead. But that may change under the Obama administration. I too believe without seeing the toll of this war it leaves us disconnected from the reality of it. It's a matter of national grieving and not just for the families. How do you look at this? For me I see many things like a fallen American who lost their life in a senseless war. I see what the true cost, consequence, of war really is. How do we handle this? I would say that we live in a country in which we have freedom of the press and the press should has the freedom to cover what is happening to the people of our country. It is a sad thing, yes very horrible sad. I believe the photo help tell the story of the war and I hope President Obama do lift the ban.
