The Monster

I am so tired of irresponsible people getting “bailed” out. The news tells me just because I was responsible and bought a house that I could actually afford and I don’t max out my credit cards that I should still want to bail out the greedy ones…the one that had to keep up with the Jones’s. If we don’t help them then the price of my house will go down, the economy will worsen…UGH. It’s like these parents who spoil their kids and give them everything they want and then these brats are let out into society and we have to deal with them. When does this end. When are people going to be held responsible for their bad actions. I never liked that teacher who punished the whole class for one person’s actions…what is that all about? We are so pathetic now, are we still all proud to be Americans? The only way I will answer yes to that question is when Obama is elected.

Speaking of greed…I read that according to Obama, someone making $250,000 annually is rich. According to McCain it takes 5 million to be rich (then later on he said he was joking…whatever). So what does define wealthy? I guess wealthy is in the eye of the beholder. I would say if you are content with your life then you are wealthy. Greed is a nasty word…look where it has gotten us. We deserve what we get. C’mon…we were out of control, we were that spoiled teenager.

Everyone wants change

I knew today being 9/11 was the anniversary of an awful day for the U.S but I wasn’t sure how many years it had been (my memory of time frames is gone). Then I read it is the 7th anniversary…my train of though immediately went to “the 7 year itch”. The meaning of this term is commonly “the inclination to become unfaithful after seven years of marriage” It is now often extended to refer to an urge to move on from any situation, and not even limited to those of seven years’ duration.

Well, I do have that 7 year itch. I actually feel less secure with this country now 7 years later after that catastrophe. I think taking my shoes off at the airport is kind of useless now (first class passengers get steak knives) and the word recession is still in full effect. I think the country should scratch their 7 year itch and be unfaithful to the Republican Party, have that urge to move on…vote Democrat…vote Obama.

Peace to all the relatives and friends of the victims of 9/11 and peace to everyone who was affected that day.

Two can play at this game

 The DD has to do anything she can to get Obama elected…anything!!

“Governor Sarah Palin gave her speech tonight at the GOP Convention, and it gave people who didn’t know anything about her the chance to finally meet her, you know, like John McCain.” –Jay Leno

Sarah Palin and McCain are a good pair. She’s pro-life and he’s clinging to life.” –Jay Leno

“John McCain has finally decided on his vice president. The only question now is from which house will he make the announcement.” –David Letterman

“Barack Obama said today that he is going to fight for votes in all 50 states. Yeah. That’s what he said. Meanwhile, John McCain said he’s going to fight for votes in all 13 colonies.” –Conan O’Brien

“Cindy McCain sprained her wrist. Doctors say it’s nothing serious — she probably did it cutting John McCain’s meat into little tiny pieces.” –Craig Ferguson

“And how are you going to be the vice president of the United States with five kids to take care of? She’s got a four-month-old of her own, she’s about to become a grandmother, and she’s partnered with John McCain. How many diapers can one woman possibly change?” –Jimmy Kimmel

“Let me ask you a question: is it just me, or does Sarah Palin look like a model for LensCrafters?” –David Letterman

“Did you see Sarah Palin standing next to McCain at the podium the other day when he introduced her? Didn’t it look like one of those commercials where the daughter is trying to find a nice home to put Dad in? ‘We’d like someplace quiet.'” –Jay Leno

“Five kids? Does anyone in that party understand the concept of pulling out?” –Bill Maher

He found his “V”

I was asked to comment on Sarah Palin, the nominated V.P that unfortunately will not make it to D.C. My beef with that choice is McCain, as a friend of mine said last week “what, just because she has a vagina he thinks we will all come over to his side” (not an exact quote but close). You know that is the ONLY reason he picked her…check. Obama is still the smarter choice…checkmate!  I really don’t care about her daughter’s situation or her lack of experience, I would honestly rather have her then a 72 year old…sorry that is just too old to be president. A 12 year old commented to me that at least he doesn’t have to drive anywhere; he takes his limo…now that is funny! The election has always been a game but now it has gone from Pong to the hottest Xbox 360 game. As soon as I heard about McCain’s choice for VP I had a vision of him just snickering, hunched over, hands clasped and twirling his fingers like a Batman villain.

I have faith that America is smart enough not to fall for his obvious ploy. I’m not saying Obama is perfect but he is more sincere, that I have no doubt.

And the VP is…

VP Home

VP Home

I remember when I was a kid I watched soap opera’s loving the “can’t wait until tomorrow to see what happens”. Then I got aggravated, they kept me hanging too long, it seemed like the carrot was being dangled in front of my nose for eons and I lost interest. I don’t like things to be dragged out for eternity and that’s how I’m feeling about the VP selection. I used to be curious but honestly now I’m like “just freaking pick one”! They say Barack is going to wait until the last possible minute for the announcement and that McCain has to wait for the perfect timing after Barack; it’s this whole game. McCain’s advisor says “If they go first, you have more information”. Aren’t they picking someone they think will do a good job…shouldn’t it be that easy? Some websites are giving us clues…is it Miss Scarlett or Professor Plum? Or you can sign up to receive a text be the first to know…I think I can wait an hour or two to find out what man he chose. Unless it’s Hillary, I just don’t care.

 

 

I wish I may, I wish I might…

When I blow out the candles on my Happy Birthday America cake and make my wish I want this “close race” to take a strong democratic lead (I bet Hillary would have had a bigger lead but I’m not one of those people who will say “I told you so”)!

WASHINGTON, July 3 (UPI) — Republican political analysts say they are surprised that the U.S. presidential race is so close, given the handicaps facing their party.

John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee, is burdened by an unpopular Republican president and an economy heading downhill. But many polls show McCain in a statistical tie with Democrat Barack Obama.

She’s headed to Pennsylvania

                                              

You’re never too young to have an opinion.  This girl made up her mind all  on her own, her dad is for Obama and her mom is for Hillary so she had to choose. She was smart enough to at least know to stay with the Democratic party, if she went with McCain I have a feeling there would be no desserts for awhile!
