Barack Obama has been re-elected to a second Term as President of the United States. I have been assessing the "day after" and will be releasing an "Americas Watch" soon. What is quite amazing is the nature of his win as the details continue to emerge on the reach of his and how he was able to help the down tickets quite a bit. I was also amazed to see how he won New Jersey with 61 percent of the Vote.

The Speaker of the House, John Boehner, has been making the interview rounds and gave a speech noting how he yearns to be led by President Obama. He has acknowledged the fact that "Obamacare" is now law of the land and is open to revenue increases. He has also noted the fact that the GOP has a lot of work to do. It seems, though, that many others within the so-called Conservative Movement have yet to fully accept the President's Win of both the popular vote and the electoral college vote despite the massive onslaught by the Super PACS. Karl Rove's so-called Charity spent over 100 Million Dollars and his result was: zero. Karl Rove questioning Fox News' Call during election night was hilarious. Megyn Kelly actually had to walk to the elections desk at Fox News to dispute Karl Rove's contention. 


 This month, though, begins a month of celebration. Thanksgiving is upon us in the United States. This week-end is also Veterans Day. It began as Armistice Day when Germany surrendered on the 11th Day at the 11th Hour and ended World War I. It is now celebrated as a day to remember all who have served and continue to serve even now. As the Veterans are honored, it is also absolutely crucial to note that their families must also be honored and remembered. The families have served right by them. I never forget when one of my cousins wrote about how blessed she was after a base her husband had served in Afghanistan was attacked by suicide bombers three days after he left for Kuwait. How can such sacrifices ever be repaid? All I know is that they must not be forgotten..and they will not be:
