SOS: The commonly used description for the international Morse code distress signal· · · — — — · · · a continuous sequence of three-dits/three-dahs/three-dits, for those of you who are not Amateur Radio Operators, commonly called Hams. In popular usage, SOS became associated with phrases such as "Save Our Ship" and "Save Our Souls".
In street slang, SOS means same old stuff. With the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama today one thing is very clear: The next four years will not be the same old stuff, no way, no how. We have entered into an era like no other the United States of America has ever experienced. So issue the SOS my friends, America is officially in distress. "Save our Souls"
Roger Gardner predicted today would be an extraordinary day, ... but not how you might think:
One line that was surfaced over and over today was "remake America". Barack Hussein Obama said, “Our time of
standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant
decisions -- that time has surely passed,” Obama said in his first speech as
president. “Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and
begin again the work of remaking America.”
Bob Ellis asks, "Remake America into whose image? ... Since our nation has risen in a relatively short time to become the
most powerful nation on earth–in human history–doesn’t it stand to
reason that we did something right to get here? ... " Amen, Mr. Ellis.
Obama's agenda will be very bad for this country, but specifically it will be terrible for individual citizens. Government Jobs Outnumber Manufacturing Jobs, But Barack Obama Still Wants to Add 600,000 More, reports Bob McCarty Writes:
Add 600,000 government jobs — the ones Obama has said he wants to add to the already-bloated federal government payroll (see this article for details) — to the already-existing 22 million government jobs, and the disparity will only grows worse.
LAST GASP BEFORE INAUGURATION: Group Aims to Head Off
Obama’s Likely First Move in Office
President-elect Obama has made it clear on a number of occasions during his
campaign that his top priority in the White House will be to sign the Freedom of
Choice Act, a move that would repeal every single restriction on abortion in
But Pro-Life advocates like Chris Slattery, president and founder of EMC Front Line Pregnancy Centers, are calling out to their constituents to keep up the good fight.
“Politicians make promises to get elected,” says Slattery, “but the situation is more complex than that. First, the bill has to be re-introduced in Congress. That has not happened yet. Even then, it has to go through the committee process in both Houses, and pass by vote in both the House and the Senate before it can get to Obama for his signature. We have time to act.”
However, having said all that, Slattery says there is no time like the present. Obama’s likely confirmed Secretary of Health and Human Services, Tom Daschle, has a lopsided Pro-Choice voting record as a Senator. And Obama also has the power to issue Executive Orders. Both stand as challenges.
Slattery is available for interviews to project on what these challenges really mean in the abortion battle and, more importantly, what Pro-Life voters can and should do to maintain the footholds they’ve gained in recent years.
He also offers a sharp view on the laundry list of agenda items the Pro-Abortion lobby has placed on the table in front of the President-elect, as they eagerly anticipate his inauguration.
THE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ACT WOULD ELIMINATE EVERY RESTRICTION ON ABORTION, INCLUDING:
1. Partial-birth abortion, or the dismembering of babies as they are being born, will now be legal.
2. Parental consent laws for minors will no longer be in effect. Although a seventeen-year-old girl has to have her parents present in order to get acne medicine, a thirteen-year-old can get an abortion without her parents knowing. Think of the injury done to these young women, as well as to their children!
3. Laws prohibiting public funding of abortion will be struck down. The American taxpayer will now have to fund something many of us know to be murder.
4. Laws requiring women to be shown information about and alternatives to abortion will be struck down. Think about any other surgery that's performed: you are bombarded with information. And yet, in one of the most invasive medical procedures, women would be kept ignorant of the facts.
5. Laws allowing medical staff and hospitals to refuse to perform abortion on grounds of conscience will be struck down. (Where's the freedom of choice here?)
6. Laws prohibiting medical personnel other than licensed physicians from performing abortions would be invalidated because they may "interfere with" access to abortion. (Talk about protection for women!)
7. Government agencies and officials would be prohibited from taking any action that would "discriminate against the exercise of" the FOCA-created legal rights, with respect to any "benefits, facilities, services, or information," would leave government officials open to lawsuits for anything that anybody thought "discriminate(s)" against abortion.

From Get Liberty.org:
The inauguration wasn't quite as bad as the cartoon depicts.
When Barack Hussein Obama walked out on the dias to take the oath of office, SOS was not what popped into my mind. With his head thrown back, his nose in the air, a smug look on his face, ... my first thought was "What an arrogant SOB." So my plea is SOS from this SOB.
