NO DRAMA OBAMA

 OBAMA’S INAUGURATION SPEECH

 My fellow citizens:

I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.

So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.

That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.

These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land – a nagging fear that America’s decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights.

Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America – they will be met.

On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.

We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.

In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted – for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things – some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.

For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life.

For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.

For us, they fought and died, in places like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn.

Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.

This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions – that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.

For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act – not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology’s wonders to raise health care’s quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.

Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions – who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short. For they have forgotten what this country has already done; what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage.

What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them – that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works – whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account – to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day – because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.

Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control – and that a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our Gross Domestic Product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart – not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.

As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience’s sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and that we are ready to lead once more.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort – even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we will work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus – and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.

To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society’s ills on the West – know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.

To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world’s resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.

As we consider the road that unfolds before us, we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who, at this very hour, patrol far-off deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us today, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages. We honor them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service; a willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves. And yet, at this moment – a moment that will define a generation – it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all.

For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. It is the kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break, the selflessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours. It is the firefighter’s courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent’s willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.

Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends – hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism – these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility – a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.

This is the price and the promise of citizenship.

This is the source of our confidence – the knowledge that God calls on us to shape an uncertain destiny.

This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed – why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father less than sixty years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.

So let us mark this day with remembrance, of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America’s birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At a moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words be read to the people:

“Let it be told to the future world…that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive…that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet (it).”

America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.

VINAKA VAKALEVU MR PRESIDENT.
MAY GOD BE WITH YOU AND YOURS FOREVER.
THESE DAYS WE ARE LOOKING BEYOND THE SEAS SURROUNDING OUR BEAUTIFUL ISLANDS FOR  HOPE AND INSPIRATION.

    Hey guys, if I want to read or listen to Obama’s speech, I would go to CNN.

    Isn’t there something more pressing about Fiji that you folks can discuss in here.

  2. iceman Says:

    Budhau, tell your Boss the pig to read Obama’s speech between the lines….Only if he understands that is another story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Lata Yaqona Says:

    I agree Budhau! USA have democracy working for them and this copy and paste is sheer laziness.

    Obama’s speech is all around us and we don’t need it here as well.

    Fiji since their last coup have been trying to get their democracy back and recent events that are more in line with how this could be achieved should be discussed on this blog!

  4. F.I.R.M Says:

    Budhau,Lata Yaqona AKA Adi Kaila I am going to say goodbye now because I am brininging a group of friends 35 of us will be checking in Denarau to visit the Flood Victims.We were suppoosed to stay at the Fijian but because Lata yaqona aka Adi Kaila hijacked this site we decided not to stay @ the Fijian.

  5. Ratu Sai Says:

    There would some satisfaction in knowing that this man’s rise to the most powerful office in the world that there would be some form of relief for the common people of our country, however it is a true as it was yesterday tomorrow and most likely into the future the status of the people will forever remain static democracy or not.

    Put simply his status will not alter the unjust acts that have occurred within the borders of Fiji past present and or future.

    The sooner we all collectively work towards a common destination and bed all ills that have dogged us over the years, maybe then the common bond that ties us together as a community will return where love among our fellowmen and children’s is exchanged in a manner reminiscent of years gone by.

    Peace be on US.

  6. Solar Powered Cars Says:

    I thought it was a fantastic speech and inauguration. Wasn’t as touching and emotional for me as his speech after winning the election but brilliant none the less. I just hope he can deliver on the promises and hype and help drag the US out of it’s economic pit.

  7. Talei Says:

    Good luck Obama, you can’t just say “present” now.

  8. Budhau Says:

    F.I.R.M., you idiot, you do not check in at Denarau – so 35 of you are flying down to Fiji to check on the flood victims – I guess the fund raising campaign at the .org site is doing good.

    It might have been a better idea to let the Red Cross visit with the flood victims and you guys donate that airfare of your party to the Red Cross.

    ..checking in at Denarau..my arse.

    Obama speech hit this site minutes after the event – what about something to do with FB backing out of the PNG trip.

  9. Nostradamus Says:

    Voreqe would not be able to understand Obama’s speech. Voreqe is a “governor of Mississippi, pre-1960”, a real Klu Klux redneck dictator. Massive sit down strike is the way to go with Voreqe. March on the Government buildings, march on the QEB. Let the whole world know.

    Unfortunately it has not gotten through to the People that under Voreqe their livelihoods go down in total by $million per day. That adds up over time in terms of standard of living, stress, suicides, and people selling themselves on the street. Creeping Voreqism. Creeping Bainimugabeism.

    This site should be called Solicici.com for the type of profane language used.

  11. Keep The Faith Says:

    Hey Budhau have you read Victor Lal’s latest piece in the Sun?
    http://www.sun.com.fj/main_page/view.asp?id=13313

    I’m not asking for your take on it, just wondering if you’d read it.

  12. Budhau Says:

    No, Keep the Faith, I have not read Lallu piece yet, bit I will go check.

    BTW – I think there are a lot of bright sharp folks, both in Fiji and abroad, who are opposed to this coup, including some investigative journalists types – how come the Domcary movement types are stuck with guys like Victor Lal, Tui Savu and that Iyer guy from NFP.

    I think we will be better off with some people who don’t have any political baggage.
    ..anyway, I will go read the piece, I hope he is not trying to track down the hurricane relief money from cyclone Amy that the Chodo “stole”

  13. EnufDictatorship Says:

    CNN news this evening aired how China sensored parts of President Obama’s speech that contained the words COMMUNISM…and this is Vore’s partner-in-crime…

    Well, really this is the part that needs to be plastered on Vore’s front door…

    “To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history;”

    …and this is VORE’S SAD History indeed…

    God bless Pres. Obama and America!

  14. Budhau Says:

    Hey Keep the Faith I did go and read Lallu’s piece – and usual the dude writes crap.

    First of all – I do like Lal’s email address – vloxford@gmail.com. I am trying to get mine as budhauhavard@gmail.com. BTW Oxford folks do have their own email address – which this wannabe does not have otherwise we would see a vlal@history.ox.ac.uk or something like that. Good luck Victor, now go get that Oxford email address.

    I really don’t have the time to go thru his whole article, but here are some example of why this guy need to get his shit together.

    Victor Lal, while talking about GOPIO wrote, “And it even has reportedly paid the airfares of the citizens of Fiji to attend the GOPIO conference in Chennai?”

    Let us get some facts straight. GOPIO (Global Organization of People of Indian Origin) is active in about 25 countries and its members are generally citizens of those countries – unlike NRIs (non-resident Indians) who live in a foreign country but are still Indian citizens.

    Every year, around January 9th, there is an event sponsored by the Indian government called Prabasi Diwas – the significance of this date is that this is when Mahatma Gandhi returned to India after living abroad.
    People of Indian origin settled abroad – Indian citizens and those who are citizen of other countries come to this meet.

    By custom, GOPIO holds its convention immediately before the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas to allow delegates to participate in both events.

    So Victor Lal is wrong when he says that, “it even has reportedly paid the airfares of the citizens of Fiji to attend the GOPIO conference in Chennai?”

    If the fares of these Fiji people were paid – it was paid by the Indian government which is the sponsor of the Prabasi Diwas – and it was paid for these folks to attend the Prabasi Diwas – not the GOPIO meet as Vicor Lal suggests.

    Lal also wrote, “On what grounds did some participants qualify for invitation from the Indian government to attend the GOPIO conference? “

    The invitation from the Indian government was to attend the Prabasi Diwas, not the GOPIO convention. As for the invitation, I am sure the Indian High Commission in Fiji made the recommendations as to who should be invited.

    Claiming to be an Oxford guy and a investigative journalist, one would expect a little bit more from this dude. BTW – I don’t why YP Reddy would want his fare paid?

    Lal went on, “On the other hand, why are Fijian institutions, such as the Great Council of Chiefs and other highly sensitive and symbolic i-taukei Fijian institutions, being smashed by the military-cum interim regime in the name of non-racialism, and yet a group of most high-profile Indo-Fijians, have been allowed to publicly parade their “Indianness” in solidarity with people of other Indian origins through GOPIO, a worldwide organisation founded in 1989 looking after the interests of people of Indian origin (PIO) living outside India? “

    Victor Lal in his attempt to bash Chaudary has attempted to show that Chaudary is trying to sell Fiji to India, or he is going along with Professor Davies argument that all these Indians want is to make Fiji into “Little Indian”. It seems that now Victor Lal has become very pro-Fiji or Pro-Fijian – you might want to read some of his writings from a few years back – he ain’t no friend of the Fiji or Fijians.

    Making a long story short – I am sure all these indigenous Fijians who have migrated and either are citizens of other countries or their children will be – what exactly is the problem with these folks who will end up with a tremendous resource in intellectual, technical, scientific, professional, trade, and entrepreneurial skills – to want to return and invest in Fiji. I am sure they would have their children maintain cultural ties with Fiji, learn the language, come for vacations etc. Why would you question their loyalty to the country of which they are a citizen.

    I am of Indian origin, I was born a Fiji citizen I am now a citizen of another country – I see no problem with me visiting either Fiji or India regularly, or investing in either of those countries or having my children maintain close ties with these countries. I am sure the Irish Americans Italians, Chinese and others have similar ties. Just because some of the Fiji Indos can not trace their family or village in India – why would that stop them from establishing cultural ties with that country.

    Remember how they questioned the loyalty of the Japanese in the US and put them in camps. Victor Lal’s argument is no different – and bringing it up at a time when race relations in Fiji is at its worse – Lallu should be ashamed of himself.

    I remember seen a cartoon from the 1940 – which said something like “Japs and Hindus, not allowed” – and that was somewhere on the west coast of the US.

    Race relations in Fiji is probably at its worse right now – and for Lal to bring up this crap is a shame.

  16. Budhau Says:

    Keep the Faith,
    I tried posting a response to that Victor Lal peice in the Sun – did not go through – maybe it was too long.

    Anyway, the Lallu boy got his information all wrong about GOPIO, the Prabasi Diwas and who paid the fare and all that.
    I hope my earlier resposne make it through in here.

  17. tualeita Says:

    Just saw on TV that President Obama, on his first day in the oval office, has already moved big time towards closing down the Guantanamo detention centre and has already signed an executive presidential order that will free much more information to the American public.

    Now this is what the people want, openness and transparency.

    Gorbachev’s policy of openness an rebuilding in the late 1980s was one big reason that brought down the USSR.

  18. Budhau Says:

    Tualeita – on a side, Obama just appointed Neal Katyal to a top job in the Justice Department – this was the lawyer who won the case for Osama’s driver who was at Gitmo.

    BTW for those of you who hate Indos, Neal is an Indian.

    Keep the Faith – that Victor Lal’s article in the Sun questioning the loyalty of Indians who go around getting Non-Resident awards from India – check out this Neal Katyal guy – who was also given some top 10 Non-Resident Indian award – I am sure Obama does not question the loyalty of this American Citizen, whose parents were form India.

  19. Mark Manning Says:

    Barack Obama’s inauguration is old news now , but what still stands clear in our minds is , that he was Elected in the 1st. place , unlike Frank and co. who have absolutely no legitimate authority !
    Who would ever have thought that Fijians would one day be on the verge of starvation ?
    http://www.fijitimes.com/story.aspx?id=112460
    Frank , you and your supporters , who incidentally have gone very quiet of late , have done a wonderful job of turning Fiji around and taking the country forward .
    It seems though that you have headed in the wrong direction and aren’t quite sure what exactly it is your going forward to !

  20. Mark Manning Says:

    At least Obama was elected !

  21. Anon Says:

    Common Netani Rika post something interesting here. Have you finally learnt your lesson?

  22. Mark Manning Says:

    What’s going on with this site now ? Has the Military unintelligence taken it over ?

  23. Mark Manning Says:

    check this out , the 1st. time a Government official , a Senator no less , has virtually implicated a conspiracy by the then government , in the assassination of John F. Kennedy .

    See how he rubs his nose , is this an indication that he is lying or covering something up ?

  24. Anon Says:

    Only time will tell Mark Manning. Like all the sona levu’s who were trying to be macho on this side who have all gone hiding.

  25. tualeita Says:

    Budhau,

    Respectfully, your assumption that I hate Indians is wrong.

  26. Budhau Says:

    Tualeita – You misunderstood me – I did not imply that you have Indians.
    In that post, after I addressed what you had to say I had a one liner for those “those of you who hate Indians” – and then I went to address something that was brought up by Keep the Faith.

    BTW – there are many in here who either hate Indians or who have a intense dislike for Indians – led by that former Peace Corp dude with the Fijian wife from Boston.

    ..and what is this four days and counting – and there is all kinda crap going on in Fiji and this site has nothing to post.

    Hell…I am going to start up a fund raising drive to start a new blog…..any one wanna donate. Hey Kutu you wanna join my group.

    This makes me feel at home – sort like we will 14 Fijian political parties in the next election.

  27. Nostradamus Says:

    I think you just want to be hated.
    Who would you be if you could not take advantage of other People by feigning victimhood? Self-hate justifies your caste system and your need for reincarnation.

  28. Budhau Says:

    See what I mean. BTW – Nostra that hate thingie – that is your problem, not mine. So make sure you teach your children well, because they are not born hating others, they need to be taught.
    BTW – that caste system thing – isn’t that the same in your culture also – that is, unless you are born a Ratu, you ain’t shit.

    ….and that reminds me – your Qarase dude just appointed the big kahuna in in his area – I heard that Qarase is a bastard – and you culture does not allow a bastard to be become a chief.

    As for the the victims – who exactly is getting their arse whipped in Fiji now – the victims of Chaudary/Bainamarama. Who needs affirmative action in Fiji, because they have been victims. Who need to protected by legislations – because they will be victimized by others who will take their land if there was no law prohibiting the sale of land. Who need help with set asides for government contracts/licenses/permits etc.
    Poor you – without all this aid – aren’t you the real victims – or just a bunch of freeloaders.

  29. FijiGirl Says:

    Moderators – Would you please fulfill your function and either put up Fiji specific postings, or publish an email address so that the others with something to say (like Cassandra, IslandBoy, Turaga Nite, Jean D’Ark et al) can wire it in to be posted up?

    At the moment the most interesting thing on this blog is Budhau.

    With all due respect, Budhau buddy, that’s not a good thing. But please, do feel free to revel in your moment of glory.
    God bless Fiji

  30. Budhau Says:

    FijiGirl,
    This is my site now, I paid good money for it….and if I chose to run it into the ground, there is nothing you, or anyone else can do about it.

    I am planning to make this into a Fiji online dating site after I get enough in donation money.

    I have been following Obama’s speeches throughout his campaign to his inauguration.” Towards a more perfect union ” was really the defining speech on his journey.Why can’t our politicians talk like him?

  36. Save the Sheep Says:

    Budhau.

    Get over you self man or you will go blind…

  37. Budhau Says:

    Yes Jose, Neal Katyal is not a sleazy Indo-Fijians and those two Indos named on the IG blogsite, they are not an exception to the rule – right.
    Then there is you Victor Lal – he seems to be a good boy also….and and I forgot Attar Singh – now there is good Indian isn’t it.

    So this Katyal guys, his parents were from India, be is US born – can we trust the guy or his loyalty still lies with India…and what about the Bansal lady that Obama appointed.

    You see Jose, there are good Indians and there are bad Indians – just like there are good Fijians and then there are arseholes like you.

    Or should we go with all Indo Fijians are sleazy Mfckers and the Fijian race is god’s gift to humanity.

    Jose, look out for Neal Katyal for the next Supreme Court nomination.

    Save the Sheep – I am already blind.

  38. Jose Says:

    Fiji Indians are all sleazes. I don’t give 2 hoots for any of them.

  39. Jose Says:

    Kaiveicoco

    That speech of Obama’s “towards a more perfect union”, be very careful what you wish for. This man is more dangerous then George Bush.

  40. Budhau Says:

    Good for you, Jose on that “Fiji Indians are all sleazes” remark.
    I assume that you also believe that that the Fijian race is God’s gift to humanity..right?

    …and what else did you say – you believe in democracy, wasn’t Hitler also elected in a democratic election.

    Hey Jose, you “don’t give a hoot about any of them” them Indians – what do you think, do they give a shit about people like you.
