Well, if anyone still ever reads this, sorry for the lack of posts. I don't have a life. Nothing exciting is happening. I've been working a lot of overtime. Since the hurricanes (specifically Ike), we've been swamped at work. I don't normally get overtime, so I'm getting as much of it as I can while I can. So I just saw something on the today show saying something like "six kids hasn't stopped Angelina Jolie from her humanitarian efforts." They also referred to her as "super mom." I have to disagree. I'm sure I've read that she has nannies. How could she not when she still works in movies and what not? I'm sorry, but a millionare who can afford nannies to take care of her kids while she jets around the world does not consitite a super mom to me. Someone who is a single mother taking care of their kid(s) on their own is a super mom. A stay at home mom who stays sane is a super mom. A mom who balances work, kids, and husband is a s
From Obama strained to portray himself as willing to break ranks with fellow Democrats. His prime example was his vote for a bill that was supported by 18 Democrats and opposed by 26. Congressional Quarterly rates him as voting with his party 97 percent of the time since becoming a U.S. senator. Obama incorrectly claimed all of McCain’s ads had been “negative.” That was true for one recent week, but not over the entire campaign. And at times Obama has run a higher percentage of attack ads than McCain. Obama repeated a dubious claim that his health care plan will cut the average family’s premiums by $2,500 a year. Experts have found that figure to be overly optimistic. Obama wasn't entirely forthcoming about his relationship with ACORN: Obama: The only involvement I've had with ACORN is, I represented them alongside the U.S. Justice Department in making Illinois implement a motor voter law that helped people get registered at DMVs.He did , but that wasn't
A few non-partisan sights to view if you're still undecided or questioning your decision for the election:
I am getting soooo irritated! So it pisses me off when I hear both sides of the candidacy pointing fingers as teach other. This is not what we care about. We want to look ahead, not behind. I also don't want to hear people say "well, he said this...." and continue to say that they're not BOTH running attack ads that are negative. Don't try to act like you're above it when obviously neither candidate is above it. THEY ARE BOTH DOING IT. So whether you're republican or democrat, don't try to act like your party is not doing the same. Both sides are doing it.
Last night while watching the debate, I became more irritated than Tom Brokaw. So here I go again... So, I'm not sure if I'm just hearing things or what. Obama said something about our nation having a surplus when George W. was elected into office. In the next breath, he said what our deficit was at the time. How is that possible? How do we have a surplus and a deficit at the same time? Perhaps I misheard him.... I also like to weatherize my home. Its winterize I believe... He also said that 9/11 was the reason for Iraq. Now, I do believe that Saddam was one of the people who helped Al Queda by giving them money. However, Iraq was a totally different story from 9/11. Yes, I could get into the whole WMD discussion but we all know we didn't find them (doesn't mean they weren't there at some point). Saddam Hussein was a horrible dictator. Some of the things that he and his sons did were beyond atrocious. They were horrible men who deserved their end, i
This post is going to continue on the same lines of the last one. I just can't help it. I know what the reason is that a lot of people go on shows like "Meet the Press." I just hope everyone else that sees or hears things like this is. I hope everyone realizes how transparent some of these people are that are biased and pushing their own propaganda. This is probably the point. However, I'm afraid that there are too many uneducated people, or just people that don't understand politics that just don't realize this. These are the people that go and vote blindly, by flipping a coin, voting for someone they know won't win (like Nader in years past), or even people who go and vote for the person they think is more attractive(studies say this does actually happen). In this day and age, it is simple to do a little research. How about NOT just taking someone else's word for it and looking into it yourself? Are we as a society so lazy that we can't take e
I hope not to offend any of my friends by what I am about to write. After the vice presidential debate and the events following, I have decided that the people who still are undecided are morons. People focus on the wrong thing when it comes to elections. They need to focus on the issues. The economy, education, yes even Iraq. Things like abortion and gun-control don't really matter because they aren't as important as the aforementioned issues in the US right now. People that just want the Iraq war to be over are naive to say the least. They don't understand that even if we do just pull out and let them do their own thing that when it goes into the crapper, we(as a country) will be blamed for that too. The country needs to be stable before we take our men out of that country and stop helping them. As for Palin and her supposed lack of experience.... does anyone realize that she actually has more executive experience than all the other candidates? She's the only one
