President Barack Obama - an musing from USA

Barack Obama
While on other still hear about :
1) Majority VS minority.
2) Yellow, brown, black OR white.
3) How the REAL democracy.
4) How ACCEPTED the defeat.
5) How the NATION above of personal.
6) How ABILITY above of appearance.
7) How the elections ending elegantly.

With Barack Obama being a President of The United States, they have been prove it to the world. No talk but actions.

  9. Dear Petrea,
    I'm glad to hear your reaction too (by commenting to this post).
    Until now, I like Obama as a "personal" and how your country prove it (against the issue of minority and race). I don't know what going on after he lead USA officially. I believe he must co-operate with Congress and Senate and give the precedence of your country's interests first.

  10. hi tikno, we don't know yet what will be going to happen for US for upcoming years, but at least OBAMA has made US big history...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi Tikno,
    Aldhis is right. Obama inherits America with many problems. He can't solve them on his own and we must work with him to help.

    I think you're right, he will start with the American financial crisis. He made promises to the voters. Unlike other politicians, I believe he will try to keep them. But he will have to do many things at once. He's a man of the world, and through him we see ourselves as part of the world. There is no going back, only going forward now.

  15. Dear Anthony Harman,
    Like Petrea (from USA) said "He made promises to the voters. Unlike other politicians, I believe he will try to keep them."

    I believe as an American citizen she know Obama more than us (Indonesian people)

    ReplyDelete
  16. The whole world is watching Barack Obama and we all have opinions about him. Anthony is right that many different people find him impressive. Only the future will tell us if he's as great as he seems to be. I hope so! We need greatness to help us now! Just because I believe he will keep his promises doesn't mean he will. But we all hope so.

    I'm glad you like my blogs. I'm an amateur photographer.

  17. Hoping that this great man, this powerful speaker, can help lead the most powerful nation in the world toward a better tomorrow. He was honest about the fact that it will be difficult to accomplish his goals in one term, and said it would be an uphill battle. He also said that we can do it together, as a nation, and as hardworking people who care about our future and our children future.

  18. Dear Petrea,
    One certain matter, your country already inspiring the world about the issue of color's differences and the issue of minority. That is the first change off "wind of change". The change influences from Obama

    Dear Iron Woman,
    I pray for his goals could become the reality and creates a better world.

  19. just 3 word : I LOVE OBAMA...

  20. Dear Tikno,

    Once again, I must take the opposite position of your other readers.

    I would happily vote for an African-American as President, but I voted against Obama because of his support of infanticide!

    It is unbelievable that in a country as big as the USA, babies are forced to die if they survive an abortion.

    Too many precious children are dying all around the world, due to famine, disease and war, yet Mr. Obama wants to fund MORE abortions - not only in the USA - but across the world. (Get rid of all those nasty "mistakes".)

    It is interesting to see the support that the man is receiving around the globe.

    Just remember, nearly 50% of the people here in the United States detest him for his moral (sic) viewpoints and the corrupt elements who financed and managed his campaign.

    In the region of the USA where I live, many Democratic voters refused to vote rather than support him. Unfortunately, they could have used their vote to support his opponent (an ethical man) but chose not to vote because of partisanship.

    People in the USA who value human life and individual freedoms are watching to see how much damage Obama will do to those lives and freedoms in this great country of ours.

    The USA has overcome great catastrophes in the past, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks. We can only pray that it can survive an attack from within.

    No matter what the rest of the world may think, this is a sad day for America.

    PRO-LIFE and PROUD OF IT!

  21. Dear Welly,
    Hmm... another fanatic supporter for Obama.
    ------------------------------------
    Dear Brennan,
    Your comment brings an other sight, that possibly was contrary to many opinions here. It seems that Obama's mania was influencing on many place around the world. A phenomena of a person who represent sensitive issue, sometimes will attract many sympathy. But you don't have to worry. However Mr. Obama have to co-operate with Congress and Senate.

    Warm regards,
    Tikno

VETO VS DEMOCRACY

In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

VETO
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in FAVOUR."

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the p…

Messages from golden wedding anniversary

The wedding anniversary was historically derived from Roman empire tradition, where husbands crown his wife with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth anniversary. In the present, generally, it called silver wedding anniversary for 25th years of marriage and the golden wedding anniversary for 50th years of marriage. Many people dream of their wedding will be lasting but many of them also fail.

For those of you who dream of it, then there is a philosophical message from a modest golden wedding anniversary, a pieces of dialog between emcee and bride, as follow :

Emcee : (jokingly) "What is the most annoying thing from your husband?"
Bride : "As many as the stars in the sky, unable to count them"
Emcee : (shocked) "Well, but your husband's kindness is also abundant, right?"
Bride : "A little, like the sun in the sky"
Emcee : (curious) "Then why you could live with him for half a century and st…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes, I know it is an academic degree. That's it. No, I think. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:





And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt:
"If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students."
What a beautifull thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work is originaly from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…

Diversity is destiny

Competition between pair Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (known as Ahok) - Djarot Saiful Hidayat and Anis Baswedan - Sandiaga Uno in the Jakarta gubernatorial election has ended. Although the scale of this election is only for Jakarta, this political contestation has a wide influence in Indonesia and gained international attention.

I do not want to talk at length about the first paragraph in this post because I'm sure everyone in Indonesia already knows about the political tension behind it and how its influence to the national unity. I am only interested in conveying the philosophical message to you all in relation to that matter.

Diversity is destiny. So that's destiny if in Indonesia there are Chinese, Balinese, Javanese, Sundanese, Acehnese, Irian, etc. More globally there are white, yellow, black. We can not choose to be born as what tribe or nation. We can not choose to be born in a Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist family. We can not choose to be born in rich family. It is God'…

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!
