Words to heal, wound

On Jan. 14, Gov. Paul LePage said the Maine NAACP can “kiss my butt.” He has famously boasted he would tell President Barack Obama to “go to hell.”

Recently, President Obama urged people to use words that heal rather than words that wound. Obviously, LePage is not interested in taking that advice.

What a disappointment.

words to heal

Mary. a bit of Advice. avoid being seduced by the Master Bloviator President Obama. As if he knows anything remotely real about Healing. Perhaps President Obama Should concentrate more on sending a message of Strength and Consistency to the Taliban. Instead of attending Politically driven events like the Side Show In Tucson. He should focus on the failing economy.I fail to Grasp the Notion that by his Grandstanding at a grief based environment he was providing leadership.

This president does not a leadership Bone in his Body.

Mary most likely Governor Lepage did not listen to the Presidents message of Healing because he is Wise enough to see through then typical behavior of a President who will do or Say anything to improve his Sagging approval ratings.This President has no comprehension of what it is like to live in our World. Remember he was a community oranizer

oBAMa thinks he's the second

oBAMa thinks he's the second coming of MLK, but fails to realize he's not worthy of carrying his jock. He continues to be the least qualified person in every room he walks into. He's a great example of one being educated beyond their level of intelligence.

It explains how to use the 'img' tag within < and >

That's how one places an image on a web page.

- But this isn't really the place to experiment - Pattie wouldn't be too happy about that.

Good Luck!!
