As defined by Mahatma Gandhi: In India when people meet and part they often say, Namaste' which means: "I honor the place within you where the entire Universe resides; I honor the place within you of love, of light, of truth, of peace; I honor the place within you, where, when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us."
The 81-year-old American pop singer and unabashed Christmas sweater enthusiast Andy Williams recently said in a interview that President Obama is "following Marxist theory" and wants to turn the US into a "socialist country".
"Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing. One is registered as a Communist.
"Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail."
Kudos to 'Zaius Nation'
We're Number 37
There were a few moments during last night's speech in which Republican members were less than respectful to President Obama, given the usual tradition in this country of deferring to the President during a speech to Congress.
The real star of the night, of course, was Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) who shouted out "You lie!" after Obama said the health care plan would not cover illegal immigrants, and was then himself booed by other House members.
