Obama Approval Soars: President Is Now More Popular Than Bush and Equal To Reagan

Thanks to a growing economy President Obama’s approval rating has reached its highest level since May of 2013. Obama is now more popular than George W. Bush, and as popular as Ronald Reagan was at the same point in their second terms.

According to the latest CNN/ORC poll, the Obama resurgence is being fueled by the growing economy. Fifty-two percent of respondents called the U.S. economy very or somewhat good while 48% said the economy was very or somewhat poor. The President’s approval rating has increased with 18-29-year-olds (57%), women (51%), Democrats (88%), and liberal Democrats (97%).

Deep down in my own soul, I believe this a very long time ago.  Why I have turned into a soloist/eclectic in all the faiths I have read about while baking a wonderful cake--in a way.  Religion was never meant to be a tool of controlling others, but sadly after the resent Dark Ages, some humans have done their best to darken the ages to this day.  I hope by what this Pope had stated will open the eyes of the masses of people around the world to the extent their own faith can be the stronger while realizing life itself is not an absolute.

One man who is out to open many old "secrets" in the Catholic church is Pope Francis. Some of the beliefs that are held in the church but contrary to the

Hello my fellow pioneers.  I want to take a moment to reflect on the wonderful human beings in Nepal.  They need our support, prayers, and everything else.  As you have heard, they got hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake.  Last I have read 1180 people dead.  Sadly, that count will rise dramatically.

Hello Sovyonok pioneers!  Here is the link of my play that I finally got done writing and posting:  http://everlastingloveplay.blogspot.com/.  I would love to hear from all of you after you read it.  I dearly hope I did this play justice from the original storyline of "Everlasting Summer."  I take full and complete credit of all that has been written.

DUH... like in Spanish.... 'a' ending is feminine and 'o' ending is masculine.  I had a feeling that I would have an issue with the details like what you have stated.  I also know I would learn a great deal too.  No spoilers, but I am sure there are others things I can learn from you regarding what I have written. 

As for the last part--RATS!  I thought I proofread all my mistakes.  Sigh.  I constantly proofread my Star Wars & Stargate SG1 stories and find something to edit.  Thanks for the feedback.  :D

I am a frater phoenix
Introduction
I am a person that fights to win and never stand down from a challenge.  I have been to a technical college (1998 - 2006) with a certificate and three diplomas in the computer field.  Due to jobs overseas due to NAFTA, Delphi, the Koch Brothers, and all the rest, I am started back in a college since 2010.  I am under an English Major that is about to be done with my Art Associate in about 2 semesters (if fate will allow me to do so and I want to do so).  I am planning to take take a Bachelor Art degree in English once I am done with the A.A.

I love to write and would love to get a career in it.  I have written stories and posted up to 11 fan fiction saga of stories of a crossover of Star Wars & Stargate SG1 that I hope will be a good portfolio in what I can do.  I also have several blogs and write a diary/journal.  There is nothing I do not write about... even this profile.

I am not a big online gamer, but I do play Star Wars the Old Republic (as the only MMORPG online game), Diablo III, Starcraft II, Magic 2014: Duels of the Plainswalker, and a few simple ones that Windows 8.1 has for me to play for free.   I play them between the  raindrops of studying very hard in my classes at University of North Georgia at the Gainesville, GA campus.  Most importantly, I write!  I also read a lot too.  With collecting free ebooks from a service (www.bookbub.com), I can collect a good many genres and other books for several ebook software/readers. 

Believe it or not, playing these games mentioned has helped me be more creative in my stories.  Thinking and learning outside the box is essential.  Also realizing winning all the time is very important.  Playing Magic 2014: Duels of the Plainswalker has made me realize that winning is not everything.  Even in real life, if we keep on going, we will gain more than a winning hand. 

That is why I am a frater phoenix.  Frater is an old word meaning friend, companion, lover, or any other in similar respects.  If I stand tall when a fall in  life, I can be as powerful as a phoenix even though it is a mystical bird.  I am not!  Neither is all I have done to this day that makes me who I am right now and will become tomorrow.

PS.  If you have been reading my stories via Wordpress, please start using http://samcarterstory.blogspot.com/.  It is getting harder to update and not the best blogger services in my opinion.  I now regret using it for my stories.  Anyhoo, please use this link for now on.  Thanks :D
