Wow, it is so interesting to watch all of this unfold. It goes to show that 'the people' really do have the power to make change. I wish Americans would unite and force our government to deal with some of our issues such as gov. spending, debt, high cost of health care, high cost of education, high cost of gas...........

Agree with M&G - if what happened the last 3 yrs wasn't enough to make folks take to the streets, not sure what will short of the government seizing everyone's property...

Wait a minute wasn't "The One" and The Dem-O-Craps suppose to cure all these ills. After all it seems that Black folk are the only ones will with the exception of socialists and communists who believe central government planning and expansion of government bureacracy will cure all of these problems. It's a whole gang of these folk who inhabit this site. They want BIG GOVERNMENT!

Power to the people... :nod:

I have been glued to the events over the past couple of weeks.  I was hoping that it didn't turn to widespread violence . . . although we must recognize that over 300 lives were lost during this struggle.  Looking at the coverage . . . those brothas are beyond happy.  Now the hard work begins. 

The will of the people.  Whew . . . . :clap:

Sir, respectfully, through out the entire discussion of the Egyptian crisis on this board, you have repeatedly made comments similar to this one^^^^in which you imply that you are privy to information that can not be shared with others on this board.  Consequently, I am at a loss to understand what point is to be made with your constant, "I've got a secret" invocations.

It seems to me that if, for WHATEVER reason, you have information that might better inform our understanding of what's happening in Egypt, but you are barred from sharing that information, would not the better course for BOTH you and this board would be to simply be silent on ALL of the discussion involving Egypt?   :shrug:

Please explain.
