Tmatcheshe mid-term election should have been a resounding wake-up call to President Obama to change from his liberal agenda and start working with an emboldened Republican Party. On Tuesday, the GOP took over control of the U.S. Senate, expanded its majority in the House and gain governorships in such blue states as Maryland and Illinois.

obama-carter Six years ago, Americans were in the midst of their Barack Obama obsession. He was elected to the U.S. Senate and soon thereafter the presidency on mostly his charm, good looks and oratorical ability. Crowds swooned when he spoke, in fact, some fainted. He was more than a President; he was a political rock star. Of course, it helped that he was an African American with a very interesting background. The complaints about his lack of experience or his radical associates did not dent his very favorable rating with the public. The American people viewed Barack Obama as a politically fresh face, a young man on a mission of hope and change. He was seen as someone who would right the wrongs of the past and at the same time offer good government, transparency, a revived economy and an end to wars overseas.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
