    What does the name Obama mean?

    My wife......Kittylynn......in her infinite wisdom......decided to google the name Obama on a baby name site to find out what the name means.

    Do we really want a POTUS whose name means "to lean" ? It might be a precursor to other things.

    Right now the name Obama means power. Just like Oprah...power. Scary, eh?
    As today's police officers you are not unlike your counterparts of years past. You are an elite group of select members, a brotherhood of highly trained professionals, who are called upon to protect your community in a time of need. Guardians for safety. Being a police officer is not for the faint of heart. You must be honest, trustworthy and fearless in the face of evil. You are being watched everyday. Represent yourself, your department and the shield, for it should always be the embodiment of all that is good and justly. You are the thin blue line. Be proud, be tough and be safe.

    She was mainly here for the chat room when it was going strong. She still lurks and reads here occasionally.
