We are moving

After some deep thought and profound soul searching, we have decided to move our desired topics and subject matter to a different site known as AnimatedMud.com.

The name Obamanator.com just seems to be expressive of subjects dealing with President Obama and other political issues.  We realize it is a bit late in the game, but we want this site to be more specific for topics and news focused on the President or related matters.

We are in search of two political authors that wish to post on Obamanator.com.  One in support of President Obama, and the other that does not support him.
Your postings will need to be factual and without prejudice.

Obamanator.com gets top ranking in Google and most other sites when you just search the name obamanator, so you will have high visibility.

If you should have (or know someone with) an interest in political postings please send us an email link of your current work along with contact information to info@obamanator.com

For continued reading of the topics and postings done so far please visit AnimatedMud.com

 

Words… what are they anyway?

Have you ever wondered how a simple word can be so powerful to ignite extreme violence and hatred?  Is the power in the word or the hearer of the word?

Is it possible for a person to hear an inflammatory comment and not be negatively influenced?  Sometimes i wonder who is in control anymore…. the sender or receiver.

It seems we are bombarded with information (other peoples opinions) and do have a choice in the matter, but possibly lack selfcontrol to think it through before reacting.

What kind of a world would it be if we actually spoke and listened with respect for the truth?  Maybe Col. Nathan R. Jessep (Jack Nicholson from a few good men) said it best…..”YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!”  We may not want to hear or say the truth, and it gets complicated from there.

Who knows? Speaking for myself, I prefer people to trash the flattery and manipulative B.S. and say what is real…. I have tremendous respect for people that can carry an intelligent conversation of differing opinions…. without malice.

Passion is one thing, but forcing an opinion into the minds of others is (in my opinion) weak.

Are people (in power) guilty of using words to control our beliefs, or are we responsible for what we hear? There is a great quote from the bible that reads “consider carefully what you hear.” (Mark 4:24).  I might have used it out of context, but it seems the receiver has a part in the communication process.

Anyway, what are your thoughts on words and the power within them?  Are you in control of what you hear/read, or do others run you around like a dog chasing a laser pointer?
