I realise this thread has died the death now and given way to more uplifting and inspiring social comment from Bote - this time the pressing issue of 'porn over real girls' whatever that means.

As a footnote I will say this though, and then give way to Bote's important mission:

I am at this moment watching the speech at the UN by President Obama. I feel compelled to say that he is covering all of the issues we have discussed in this thread (and more of course). There are some things I can't agree with and there has already been a few clanging tones of hypocrisy, but by god what a fantastic speech. This is truly a speech by a world statesman - well delivered and compelling in it's obvious sincerity.

The only problem is that the UN almost to the same degree as it's predecessor the League of Nations, is a 'talking shop' and it remains to be seen what will come of this great statesmanship.

I have feeling that the tide is turning when I listen to erudite and heart-felt world view Obama has stated today. When you compare his ability as a speaker to that of his predecessor, it is clear why there was no other solution than war to the complicated problems we face in the world today. As a major world leader G W Bush was not capable of peaceful resolution through dialogue - I doubt he would have even been able to spell the word.

..and now back to the porn.

I'm going to have to watch this for sure! Obama, not the bote crap. :)
