God Bless these United States

I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We’re not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are and forever will be the United States of America. And together with your help and God’s grace we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on Earth. Thank you, America. God bless you. God bless these United States ----President Barack Obama

He sounds like Tony Blair. Which, depending on your political leaning, can be good or bad! :0)

A lovely painting, the air feels crisp and clear.

Columbia River Gorge...Only crossed over the river before but wish I'd been able to see the gorge and surrounding areas outside of the car. A lovely piece, Celeste.

God bless America is right. Now I'd like the three hundred some odd points back I just lost in the stock market please.

Lovely painting of a wind swept landscape stuck with status quo leadership for another four years after spending trillions.
