I know I may get some flack for posting this, but oh well get over it.
There are rumors that President Mubarak is going to make a speech soon in Egypt announcing he will be stepping down following days of incredible protests the likes of which have never been seen.
ONTD usually focuses on petty things and is cynical but at this moment we need to shift our focus to Egypt and this important moment in history. This would have an effect on the entire middle east, the people there, the war, the money, the oil, the trade. What President Mubarak does will affect all of us in one way or another and we need to be aware.
Pay attention, this is your world too.

I don't know if we have any members in Egpyt, but if we do then we send our best wishes to you to stay safe & stay positive.PRESIDENT MUBARAK DOES NOT SEEM TO BE STEPPING DOWN
-he will hold those who committed crimes during the protests responsible (injured people etc.)
-he will NOT run for re-election
-has a plan to resolve this crisis
-proposed 6 amendments to constitution, and annulled one. the new amendments will make it easier for people to run for president and limit terms.
-it seems that he says he must follow the constitution and keep to his promises. and I guess quitting would not be following the constitution.
-The Crowd is shouting "GET OUT"

Thinking of you, 3,500 Egyptian ONTDrs. Be safe. (from brenden)
-CNN shows cars/protesters headed towards the presidential palace OR the state television station.
-Vice President appears on state tv saying:
The President's speech affirms his national sense and his awareness of the gravity of this moment.
The President is responsible for the national action in order to preserve the safety and security of egypt.
We have a plan and a dialogue to achieve most of the demands.
Calls upon citizens to look to future, which they are able to make very bright, full of freedom and democracy.
TELLS THE YOUNG PEOPLE TO GO BACK TO THEIR HOUSES AND GO BACK TO WORK.
DO NOT LISTEN TO THE SATELLITE STATIONS THAT HAVE NO OBJECTIVE BUT TO HAVE SEDITION AMONG PEOPLE AND WEAKEN THE EGYPT IMAGE. LISTEN TO YOUR CONSCIENCES.
we will work together in one egyptian team.
