See story below. I could blog on this and just link to the story, but what could I add? She’s just started gaining national attention and all ready she’s taking a page out of the we have nothing to show you Bush playbook. She claims she welcomes the investigation and she has nothing to hide, but she won’t cooperate and neither will her staff.
Anyone that wants to vote for McCain after he picked this beauty queen must have rocks in their head!

Confusion — Thanks Walter!

I received this in an email and it hits the nail right on the head, so I’m posting it here. BTW, if you wrote it, please contact me. I think we have a lot in common. In the interest of full disclosure, I cleaned up some spelling and grammar mistakes and I added a couple of notes.

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

· If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “Exotic, different.”

· Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers yours is the quintessential American story.

· If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

· Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.

· Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

· Attend 5 different small colleges graduating, you’re well-grounded.

· If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

· If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people (where less than 1,500 actually voted in the election), 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive and next in line behind a man in his eighth decade.

· If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.

· If you cheated on your first wife with a rich, pretty heiress, and then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a true Christian.

· If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

· If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with neither option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

· If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.

· If you’re husband is nicknamed “First Dude”, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

Bill O’Reilly

I don’t always agree with Bill O’Reilly and most of the time I think he’s a jerk (but I love watching his visits on the View). I’m going to push this aside. I found the below quote on Time magazine’s website. If Bill O’Reilly has to come to the Obama’s aid, you know the media has NOT been unkind to the GOP. But don’t tell them that. They are so out of touch with America that they don’t know good coverage when they see/hear/read it.*

Open quoteFor anyone to say that Barack Obama consciously compared Mrs. Palin to a pig is unfair.Close quote

  • BILL O’REILLY,
  • Fox anchor, blasting the McCain campaign and the media for insinuating that the Democrat’s use of the phrase “lipstick on a pig” referred to the Republican vice-presidential nominee

God Bless

* But, after watching the GOP destroy this nation for the last eight years, I wouldn’t really expect them to do anything more than whine that they’re being unfairly treated.

Wall Street and De-Regulation…

Let me start by saying that I’m not that knowledgeable about de-regulation. I’m not sure who started it and I’m not sure why when things started to go south, why no one stepped in and stopped it.

Here’s what I do know about de-regulation, the cable companies were de-regulated 12 years ago. The idea was that with more competion, we’d pay less for our cable service.

Well, that never happened. I pay more for cable (although, I do admit this does include phone and broadband) then I ever have. Even if I take out the fees for the phone and broadband, I’m paying a lot of dough.

And, competition? I haven’t seen any. Our competition choice is Time Warner or satillite. So, I pay more, get less and I’m not better off, but the cable companies are. How is that a good thing for consumers?

So, when we de-regulated Wall Street and now it crashes, why is anyone upset or surprised?

I think I’m missing something here I will have to research more indepth than I really have th etime to do so.

God Bless

Hey You…

Yeah, you. The one reading my blog who still hasn’t decided how to vote in November. Or, you — the guy on the couch, who is going to vote for the third party candidate. This blog is for you, so pay attention.
DON’T VOTE FOR MCCAIN Period. End of Sentence.
First, don’t vote for McCain if just to keep that Palin out of the West Wing. Can you imagine her with her backwards ideas visiting heads of state in other countries? Sure, she looks nice, but then she’d open her mouth and that would be it.
Second, take a good look around, are you really happy about the state of our country? The economy is in the toliet. Seriously, in the toliet. Not that you’d ever hear how bad it really is from anyone in the GOP. Those guys want you to really, truly believe that everything’s okay. But, I did the math and I double checked my figures. My salary in 12 years has more than doubled and I’m still living paycheck to paycheck and just barely keeping my head above water.
Third, McCain has just chosen a great story to be his running mate. A mother of five? A hockey mom. Someone who rose from City Council to Mayor to Governor of the State. Damn, that is a great story, but she’s isn’t an honest Vice Presidential Candidate. She truly does not belong a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
Finally, we need to take back this nation from those who want to see our freedoms restricted and I never thought this would ever be the case, but it’s the Republicans who are trying to restrict our freedoms. Can you say the Patriot Act, boys and girls? In the past sixteen years, the Republican Party has grown from the party of small government to the party of intolerant, uneducated masses. A vote for the McCain/Palin ticket will only strengthen the right wing Christians’ hold and make it that much harder for real change to happen in this country. The party of God, guns and gays do not care if you can feed your children or if your small business survives in these hard economic times. They care that they can slam God down your child’s throat — whether you want them to or not. They care that anyone can purchase a weapon and can fill that weapon with armor piercing bullets (and the only thing an armor piercing bullet is for is killing a cop). They care that gays are punished for being born and have no rights whatsoever in this country.
A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for the end of progress. And, if that happens, God help us all.

God Bless
