    Once upon a time there was a young charismatic and eloquent young leader who decided his nation was in need of change and he was the one to implement it. The people were receptive and ready for a change. He spoke passionately when denouncing the existing system, and the media loved him. Nobody questioned what he believed in, or whom his friends were. He said he would help the poor and bring free medical care and education to all. He would bring justice and equality. He said, "I am for hope and change and I will bring you both. "...

But here I go: The easiest items to adjust for are nouns. You just plug in a noun in one language for another. Perhaps there are are languages with "easier" nouns than English but I don't know why or how. However, this is not the problem. The Romance languages have two difficulties. How to use the personal or impersonal "you" term. (In English it's left generic) It varies widely between cultures...

After they'd processed my donation, they kicked me over to a pre-loaded "Hey, friendo, I just joined Obama's Great Leap Forward" e-mail form, so I modified it some and spread the word.

It's clear that Obama has socialist leanings (proved by Obama's own rhetoric and his affiliations with the New Party). McCain needs to hit hard for a day or two on Redistribution of wealth being one of the tenets of socialism and tying Obama to...
