President Obama to United Nations: 'Peace is Hard, But We Know That It Is Possible'

President Obama spoke to the United Nations General Assembly yesterday (transcript / video). He used his speech to talk about the numerous challenges that stand in the way of a lasting peace. He advocated for peace defined by more than the absence of war, saying: “a lasting peace -- for nations and for individuals -- depends on a sense of justice and opportunity, of dignity and freedom.”






What is your take on the President's speech to the United Nations?

I love how he told them that they need to support gays and lesbians everywhere. He is right! A country can not reach its full potential if half of its residents can not or a significant portion. It is unfair to discriminate when those could be the ones to save you and your nation. A lot of these countries have no room being broke as hell and living off the US ..and finding time to discriminate! SHAMEFUL!

Also I do however believe he is starting to lead by example in his own nation on that front. It is well needed. These republicans hate everyone that is not white and old and rich ....and nasty as hell.
