Carpe Diem But drive safely! Please!
"carpe diem /0ˌkɑ:peɪ ˈdi:ɛm, 0ˈdʌɪɛm/ interjection. E19.
[ORIGIN Latin, lit. ‘seize the day!’, a quotation from Horace (Odes i.xi).]
Used to urge someone to make the most of the present time and give little thought to the future." --courtesy the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary
Barack Obama must use his remaining time on earth to inspire the world to its highest ideals of charity, humility, and community. He has chosen to be the lightning-rod 3-point leader of the planet. The more the world accepts him the bigger target he becomes for the frighteningly fatuous fringer freshling finks. For his life to be maximal he needs to pack in as much as possible with inspiring speeches between now and the Super Bowl. Podesta is already saying things meant to embarass the Bible spicers regarding the reversal of executive orders on stem cell research whose oppositional roots are within the holy roller ranks of ignorance. As he continues to fight the power of military ignorance and deceit he will step on a lot of toes. Lowlifes with their Bibles and their guns lie in wait in the shadows for an opening opportunity to make a grisly example of higher progressive civilizations' true leader. May God bless the new President.
