    k, as you were arguing over silly unimportant bull****.
    Apparently not many people: http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/..._ObamaPoll.pdf

    18. When the president of the United States is traveling overseas, do you think
    it is appropriate for him to bow to a foreign leader if that is the countryís
    custom or is it never appropriate for the president to bow to another leader?
    SCALE: 1. Yes, bow when it is the proper custom 2. No, it is never appropriate
    for the president to bow 3. (Donít know)
    Yes No (Don't know)

    I guess to people that have no Pride in America, this is how it should be...

    Obama's a disgrace, and won't get a second term. Americans want a leader, not a spineless appeaser.
    A leader respects others; abiding by other's customs and rituals while in their country is part of this respect.

    And I did note "very conservative".

    I, for one, hope that he does merit and win a second term..

    When the ambassador is arrived at the door of the Congress Chamber the member who presents him shall announce him to the President, and they shall bow to each other. The President shall then announce him to the whole house, who shall bow to him and he to them. He and the President shall then again bow to each other, and be seated; after which the members shall sit down.

    Letters of Delegates to Congress: Volume 2 September 1775 - December 1775

    John Adams' Diary

    1775 Sept. 16. Saturday. Walking to the Statehouse this Morning, I met Mr. Dickinson, on Foot in Chesnut Street. We met, and passed near enough to touch Elbows. He passed without moving his Hat, or Head or Hand. I bowed and pulled off my Hat. He passed hautily by. The Cause of his Offence, is the Letter no doubt which Gage has printed in Drapers Paper.(1)

    I shall for the future pass him, in the same manner. But I was determined to make my Bow, that I might know his Temper.
    We are not to be upon speaking Terms, nor bowing Terms, for the time to come.

    That's not true.

    What about people with birth defects such as Down Syndrome?

    We're certainly not all born equal, either.

    Life is inherently unfair.

    Well, I feel sorry for you; that you feel like just letting things be bad as they are.

    I wish to see a better world tomorrow.

    I want to see, by the time of my death, a better world than what I see now.

    FORCING Fairness doesn't make things better. That's why Communism and Socialism don't work. For someone to FORCE fairness they have to be more powerful than everyone else, and that doesn't seem fair.

    Life isn't fair. **** happens. Deal with it.

    It's always "**** happens" as long as it happens to someone else.
    When "**** happens" to you, you'll see my point.
