Human Remains Identifies as Caylee Anthony's

After a tumultuous few months of unanswered questions the case of the missing 3 year old, Caylee Anthony, is finally concluded. The skeletal remains found about a 3 minute walk from the Anthony home have been positively identifies as those of little Caylee. The utility worker who made the discovery had previously in July and August tried to direct Sheriffs Deputies to the site without result. December has proven a more decisive month now that the remains have been recovered and identified by forensic examination.

The two remaining questions at large are; 1) who is the person directly responsible for the loss of life, and 2) how did this utility worker seem to know where the body would be from as far back as July, when Caylee first was reported missing. Police are currently following up on both questions and hope to reach a conclusion as soon as possible as the child is finally laid to a proper resting place.

The childs mother, Casey Anthony, still has nothing to say to police in this matter.

Shoes Thrown at President Bush in Iraq




A surprise visit by US President George Bush to Iraq has been overshadowed by an incident in which two shoes were thrown at him during a news conference.

An Iraqi journalist was wrestled to the floor by security guards after he called Mr Bush "a dog" and threw his footwear, just missing the president.

The soles of shoes are considered the ultimate insult in Arab culture.

During the trip, Mr Bush and Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki signed the new security agreement between their countries.

The pact calls for US troops to leave Iraq in 2011 - eight years after the 2003 invasion that has in part defined the Bush presidency.

Speaking just over five weeks before he hands over power to Barack Obama, Mr Bush also said the war in Iraq was not over and more work remained to be done.

His previously unannounced visit came a day after US Defence Secretary Robert Gates told US troops the Iraq mission was in its "endgame".

'Size 10'

In the middle of the news conference with Mr Maliki, a reporter stood up and shouted "this is a goodbye kiss from the Iraqi people, dog," before hurtling his shoes at Mr Bush, narrowly missing him. BBC News-Middle East Bureau

What is a Sick Love Triangle? My Theory, See if I'm Right!

he: honey, I really want to be with you.

she: I love you and want to be with you too.

he: I have a problem though.

she: what is that? I can fix it for us.

he: I'm not ready for a ready made family. I don't know if
I want to be an instant father.

she: I don't understand. She really likes you a lot!

he: I'm sorry. It just won't work.

she: Don't say that! I'll find a way to make it work so we can be together.

he: I have to get going. Goodbye.

A short few days later.

he: Hello?

she: Sweetheart? It's me. I've taken care of everything and we can be together like we wanted to be. She won't be a problem because she isn't here anymore.

he: What do you mean "she isn't a problem anymore?". No. wait! I don't want to know what you did. Don't call me anymore or make any contact with me. I can't be involved in whatever you did, I'm a police officer.

Hangs up!

The story unfolds .........

CAYLEE ANTHONY UPDATE

"Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary said investigators searched the home early today after the medical examiner found "some clues that came out of the remains" that "linked it to the house." He would not say what clues were found."(1)

Those are the headlines and news reports coming out of Orange County, Florida today as the sheriffs office continues to sift through the mounting recovered evidence found at the now visible scene of the where a young child was 'dumped'. The physical remains included a child's skull and 'other' evidence that warranted the sheriffs department to immediately seek a search warrant for the home of Casey Anthony, Caylee's mother. The sheriffs department is not at the present time disposed to reveal the other evidence recovered in order to maintain the privacy of the case until it goes to trial.

Casey Anthony's parents returned home from California today to the news that remains had been found of a young child in a nearby wooded lot by a meter reader. They had been in California pursuing a tip that Caylee may have been seen there.

Casey Anthony, in jail for other charges pending against her, became physically shaken when she was told of the discovery and needed to be sedated.

CAYLEE ANTHONY FOUND ?




While cutting through an abandoned lot performing some routine work a utility employee spotted what appeared to be a plastic wrapped bundle laying in a wooded lot less than 1 1/2 miles from the little girls home. The utility employee went to pick up the plastic bundle to examine it and a small human skull fell from the bundle. Another person on the scene notified 911 while the utility worker watched the crime scene waiting for police. A member of EquuSearch — one of the volunteer groups — said they did not check the wooded lot at the edge of the outlying suburb in early September because it was submerged from heavy rains. When they returned in November, the site had been fenced off. Upon examination of the wrapped bundle it was determined to be decomposed human remains. Police investigators confirmed that the remains were that of a child, about the same size as Caylee Anthony, missing since June 16, 2008.

Her mother, Casey Anthony, reported she had left Caylee with an unknown babysitter who was later determined to be non-existent, and reported her missing in July! DNA and other Forensic testing will be performed to identify the remains and possibly formally charge her mother in the death and disposal of her daughter. Proper identification of a child's remains is more difficult than that of an adult unless they know who the family members are. Casey Anthony has been, to say the least, extremely non-helpful to police investigating the disappearance of her daughter.

The recovery of the remains of Caylee would be the last link in the puzzle of her disappearance and the cause(s) of it! A Forensic police dog identified the scent of a human cadaver in the trunk of Casey Anthony's car as well as some physical evidence, traces of chloroform and human hair, that may be able to be pieced together if this is Caylee's body and bring this case to a proper conclusion.

This story will be continuing as more information is released!

My personal opinion, since this is a local issue, is that the mother should have been spirited off to Guantanamo to be water-boarded to find out where she put Caylee's body so she could get a proper burial! I'll be on that jury without complaint. It's just my personal opinion.

Governor Rod Blagojevich, May You Rest in Prison



Huffington Post's Sam Stein: The arrest this morning of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has sparked intense discussion in the political universe over how great a taint his ethical follies will have both on the next Illinois Senator and Barack Obama. The governor, accused of seeking cash for the political appointment of Obama's Senate replacement, is not a close associate of the President-elect. Indeed, in the affidavit, Blagojevich called Obama a "motherfu**er" for wanting him to appoint an official that the governor either did not like or wouldn't receive money from.

This is what I heard at work this morning from, of course, a hard-line Republican associate who couldn't wait to say that this involves Obama. WHAT!? How does this involve Barack Obama? It doesn't! The Governor of Illinois, like many of his fellow Illinois politicians throughout history, was corrupt as sh*t! He wanted to take bids to see who could high-bid the senatorial seat vacated by Barack Obama. This decision, of course, is mandated by law where as the Governor shall see fit to replace a vacated congressional seat from their state until such a time where an election can put a permanent candidate into that seat. The FBI moved on Gov. Blagojevich this morning after accruing a stockpile of evidence against him including many taped conversations!

All I can say about this is that Gov. Rod has 'big stones', which we all know that when you go to prison they have a habit of turning big stones into little ones! Rod, can you say "prison bit*h"? No? You will soon enough. You deserve it!

I'd like to Thank the Huffington Post for the partial use of their story.

Sarah Palin - Persona Non Grata?

Sarah! Sarah! Where for art tho Sarah? I know one place she isn't. Alaska! The folks up in the winter wonderland state are a bit peeved at their Governor because since she lost in the general election it seems the only time she has spent in the Governors Office was for the publicity photographs of her return to Alaska. Last report I heard was that she is stumping around Georgia campaigning for incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss on the eve of the runoff election there. Alaskans are still asking, "Where is our Governor? There's work that needs to be done!".



According to the Huffington Post the following issues are on the front burner in Alaska right now that the legislature and executive office need to address. They are:

* Oil prices have dropped dramatically to about $45/bbl from the peak of $144/bbl in July, which threatens the state budget.

* Alaskans are paying some of the highest prices for gas in the nation, averaging $2.87 per gallon, while the national average is $1.91.

* The state's oil production continues to decline, due to falling prices and mature fields.

* The global credit crunch and falling natural gas prices threaten the Alaska gas line.

* The State is failing to meet its constitutional obligation to take care of public education as shown by the high drop out rates and the low graduation rates.

* Many Medicare patients cannot find doctors.

* There is continued flight from rural villages.

* Alaska faces the prospect of reduced federal dollars from Washington, D.C.

"Alaskans need our Governor here earning her salary and working on key problems facing Alaska families," said Alaska Democratic Party Chair Patti Higgins. "Alaska's challenges are significant, and there is much that needs to be done right now. Our Governor should remember that her primary job is to work on behalf of the citizens of Alaska, not engage in partisan politics in other states," Higgins said. "Governing is more than creating photo ops. We'd like a commitment that the Governor is working, not just scheduling media appearances."

I do have to agree with this publication because I don't think it's unreasonable to ask the state Governor to be on site, in her state, for state business. Does she think that she WON the election? Maybe she is tired of the 'cold state' thing and she wants to move to D.C. now to prepare for her return in 2028, after all she is the darling of the GOP, and now a Georgia 'peach'. Or WAS the darling of the GOP. Out of sight, out of mind or in her case it may soon be 'OUT OF JOB'! Never forget your roots!

I'd like to thank and acknowledge the Huffington Post for excerpts used in this article.

Death of a Walmart Associate Makes it a Real Black Friday

You have to be kidding me! Why do things like this seem to happen in New York? Let me see if I have this story straight now. A 34 year old male temporary(seasonal) associate was too near the doors of this suburban store in Valley Stream on Long Island. The crowd was so thirsty for Black Friday 'stuff' at great prices, that they tore the doors off their hinges and started a stampede that took the life of this unfortunate man, who was trying to earn a living and pay his bills and buy food. Now he doesn't need to worry about it since the mob trampled him to death trying to 'buy like crazy' like the ads tell people to do. Maybe shopping needs to come with a User Manual for Humans to Shop By! A pregnant woman was also taken to an area hospital as well as an undetermined number of other 'victims of Black Friday shopping'. The retailers needed to work the crowds up, regardless of any unfortunate injuries or deaths, because they face a Black 4th Quarter which is the quarter that every retailer needs to be good to meet revenue expectations.

I have to honestly say that I put the blame for this on the heads of the merchants. They identify shoppers as sheep to be herded to their locations to have an exchange of value to take place where the customer gives up their currency for some crap that's already outdated! As for the shoppers who ran amok in Valley Stream, they need to be taken to Pampaloma, Spain and replace the bulls because they are ANIMALS, plain and simple. To stampede and trample anyone in their way just to get a tv or stereo or game is just plain retarded. I apologize to any mentally challenged individuals out there who may be offended by my reference to retarded people, you are not retarded, they are mindless freaks!

One last point. I used to work for Walmart and I can tell you without a second thought why these morons stampeded. Walmart never has enough of the hot items to go around - EVER! They know that if they don't wait all day and then race to the department where the items are they know they will never get one. Hey Walmart, don't do that, you know I'm right. Do PS3 and laptop computers bring any memories to mind? I remember them. You'd sent a handful and when it was time to sell them you'd have us tell the customers that only the first xx people could get 1 only. Every HOT item is teased to the customer but quantities are criminally low on hand - Always! I'm stopping here because this is pissing me off thinking about this poor guy dying and how we, the consumers, are treated by the mega stores. Later.

ps. As for me, I'm boycotting Walmart this year. This was the frosting on the cake for me with them. Best Buy has better electronics but their crowd control left a lot to be desired today too, but nobody died there though!

Bailout or Bankruptcy - GM Wants Your Money

I just have a quick point to make regarding the proposed GM bailout. First, and foremost, GM wants American taxpayers to reward them for mismanagement over the past several years. While they wallowed in the 'gas guzzler' attitudes of the past the Japanese and Koreans made humongous strides in alternative fuel vehicles available to the public now.

I proposed two choices for the 'soon to be former' auto giant. 1) have your primary customer bail your arse out of the fire you started with them, the oil industry! 2) you file chapter 11 Bankruptcy papers as directed by the U.S. Government. I know why you don't want to file Chapter 11. If you do you wont have the extra cash a bailout would have given you to pay those bonuses to the idiots who ran your company into the ground in the first place. Why didn't you fire them? Now you want to reward them to stay and screw up the company even more? Oh, that's right! You'll be getting a share of the pie as well! How silly of me not to see your motivation.

It's not just GM management either, UAW! If you want your membership to have jobs I suggest you look at compromising a bit. The retirement packages you have in place add about $ 3000.00 to every car sold for the added benefits you wanted, not to mention the more than generous wages to active members. Tell me, where will they take these pricey skills when GM has to start shutting down factories? Certainly not to the Japanese or Koreans, they already have reasonably waged skilled workers!

I hope Walmart is hiring by then.

Pay attention Chrysler, you'll be my next article!

Bush Admin guilty of Iraq War Crimes? In the news!

Have a fruit tree, plants, landscaping and young trees? Frost!

I just watched the latest weather update for central Florida and I hope my plants will be alright tonight. The weather forecast is calling for temperatures in the 20's with cold wind chill values from midnight tonight to 9 tomorrow morning. What does this mean to my plants and fruit trees? Tonight, not really that much because it won't be a killing frost coming through. It's hard for a lot of people to believe that Florida can have a killing frost but we do, at least from central Florida up through the panhandle. Tomorrow evening is another story however. Tomorrow night there will be a killing frost coming through. What this means is I'm probably going to have to break the rules and put my irrigation system on about 3 a.m. to place a layer of ice on my plants and fruit trees to protect them. Breaking the rules is in reference to the watering restrictions we have in place in many parts of Florida mainly due to the fact we didn't get any real hurricanes this year and the ones that passed us by also took the regular summertime rain with them to drop somewhere else, just not here. Getting back to the trees and plants, especially the trees. When you wet the fruit on the trees and some fruit bearing plants, what you are in essence doing is putting an overcoat on them to PROTECT them from the cold. Interesting concept huh? Put water on fruit to freeze over to keep them from getting frozen. It works, just ask the Florida strawberry farmers how they protect their investments every year. Home stores sell burlap and other special fabrics that are supposed to keep the bitter cold away but when nature wants to get through it always will. The one thing I recommend that you DO NOT do is use any form of plastic as this can actually transmit the cold to your plants or trees faster than if they had direct exposure to the cold and probably kill the plant faster. I say what doesn't kill the plants will make them stronger AND healthier next year. It's worked so far!

Another reason to let the cold in is that the fruit on the trees will become sweeter after the cold hits them. I have Marsh and Ruby Red grapefruit, navel, Valencia, and Clementine oranges, Persian lime, Meyer lemon, Guava tree, fig trees, banana trees and a few others I'll remember later I'm sure. It's an amazing transformation when the sweet hits the fruit and enjoyable when doing yard work, get thirsty and grab a fresh orange. Mmmm, good!

I will be posting this story on all of my sites as a reminder for the winter and your plants!

Should Walmart roll over and die?

Just do one thing and you'll know the future of Walmart. I have 3 in my county and they all look alike. They are devoid of help except for managers scurrying around and customers walking away from frustration. It seems the company is looking to maintain their profit margins through the cutting back of controllable expenses - employees. The ones they do have were being selected for minimal hours each but have to leave their availability wide open for the company to schedule them as they see fit. Regardless of what the company spin doctors will tell reporters, the hourly staff are not very happy with the post-Sam Walton Walmart. Even Sam Walton's * is missing in the name now, remember Wal*Mart? I even remember seeing the speech on tv on one of those specials telling everyone the * was for Sam. I guess Sam is finally dead at Walmart! The powers that be at Walmart need to take heed because things like this with the new social reform government could bring on what they don't want at Walmart - Labor Unions!

Setting the Record Straight!

I just want to elaborate on the past, still warm and fuzzy, election. I have been writing this, currently politically possessed, blog in what may be seen as a Democratic Party inspiration. It is not and could not be any further from the truth. I have been an Independent Voter for many years because I vote for the candidate, not the party, as it should be! When I was younger I stood behind Richard Nixon when others would berate me for it. It was my right to do so and I would defend anyone else's right to do the same, that's what makes this country great. Or was great! Homeland Security and the recalling of other privacy's we used to have has made me feel my country has gone towards a semi-Fascist way, where the government has a say in what we can and can't do. 911 was the last time a 'terrorist' intrusion was made in here and all the 'beefing up' of security and the spending of billions of dollars in prevention has gotten just what the terrorists wanted. Without acting out any form of violent acts after the fact they have brought the U.S. to it's knees financially. They did state years ago that they could not defeat the U.S. militarily but could cripple us financially with fear tactics. I would have to say at this point that we have wasted lives in Iraq, gone almost completely bankrupt and essentially lost a war we started where the terrorists were not! GOD Bless America!

Who Do We Owe? You May Be Surprised!

I, like most others I have spoken to, have/had the idea that we knew who we owed all our national debt to. We, as a whole, were wrong! I recently read an article in Parade Magazine, Nov. 09, 2008, that broke down the 'tip of the iceburg' debts owed. This does not include the minor debts, those that are in the tens of billions. That's a relief, I was getting nervous there for a moment. Here are the standings:

JAPAN $ 585.9 BILLION OWED

CHINA $ 541 BILLION OWED

UK $ 307.4 BILLION OWED

OPEC* $ 179.8 BILLION OWED

CARIBBEAN**
BANKING CTRS $ 147.7 BILLION OWED

RUSSIA $ 74.4 BILLION OWED


* Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Indonesia, IRAN, IRAQ, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., and Venezuela.

** Bahamas, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Netherlands Antilles, Panama, and British Virgin Islands.

How did we ever get into debt with Iran and Iraq? Since when did Russia have the funds to loan money to us as well? How is this possible? Did we happen to max out our Expressly American credit card with China and Japan? What did we buy besides caskets for our soldiers and battle area civilians?

How can we, as a nation, afford to issue economic stimulus checks to the taxpayers of America when we have to incur more debt to do it? Maybe I'm being stupid and nieve, but I'd rather see this money put into paying the debt than into increasing it! If and when it goes through, I'm making a mortgage payment with it because I want to pay down MY debt!

If Your Not Part of the Solution, Your Part of the Problem!

Rush calls Barack a "Chicago thug", Lieberman steps up for the wrong candidate, and Jessie J wishes he never said he wanted Obama to 's**k his d**k'. The first one I can understand, Rush is bought and paid for by the RNC and he just wants to give them their money's worth. As far as I'm concerned he can crawl back into the political sewer with Sean and Glen, automatons, each and every one of them! These scared and ignorant talk show slugs can crawl back under the cloak of the ghost of Christmas Present! Religious hate mongers, one and all. Hatred is one thing we don't need while we enter a time of rebuilding in this country and it's obvious that these rich idiots are a major part of the problem. You may even say they have the unique standing of being on par with the likes of another political orator, Joseph Goebbels! Look where that took Germany! I really hate to say this, because I used to be a Republican, but the far right has the appearance of Fascism. To clarify this before I get hate mail from those I am not referring to, Merriam-Webster defines Fascism as:

"a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition."

Let us review here. G.W. Bush was granted extremely broad powers of action that he could institute after the 911 incident(autocratic govt/dictatorial) with seconomic regimentation(we're living in it now), social regimentation(could this be calling Obama a Socialist/Communist?) and forcible suppression of opposition(2 words here-Homeland Security, the Nazis called their internal security the Gestapo). I know, they're just words to those that use them but they do have connotations to those who can see through the messages directed at the scared and ignorant taxpayer. Who got them that way? Look in the mirror, guys!

The Return of Stem Cell Research!

I was reading on MSN today that President Elect Obama has had a group of people reviewing Executive Orders that President (Cheney) Bush has put in place during his 8 years as president. I understand it to exceed 200 items and growing, with his tenure winding down, a good deal being tracked for reversal. Two of the things that will be reversed are the clean air and stem cell research issues. We are so far behind the rest of the world in stem cell research that it's not even funny. BTW, stem cells no longer need be harvested from fetuses, the cord blood provides an abundant supply on it's own. I wrote an article a while back on saving cord blood for when you are older in case it's ever needed for you and it touched upon that very issue of harvesting stem cells. You folks that are really religious can stay home and suffer if you want to, I for one would love to live a better life with stem cell cures if I ever needed it. Whether you believe in Creationism or not, this is called Evolution now! Speaking of evolution, it's time we retire some of the ancient judges on the Supreme Court and get some younger constitutional judges on the high bench. While he's at it he can get rid of the Homeland Nazi Security bureau, it's not that effective anyhow. It was an agency created to take our attention away from issues they didn't want us noticing that they were pulling on us. Don't get me started!

This is worth watching. Don't Blame Everything on Sarah!

Another Good Idea for the New Administration!

I got this email from Marlene, a good friend of mine, and I'd like to pass along this sage wisdom!

THE JOB - URINE TEST
(I sure would like to know who wrote this one! They deserve
a HUGE pat on the back!)

I HAVE TO PASS A URINE TEST FOR MY JOB... SO I AGREE
100%. Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I
work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government
distributes my taxes as it sees fit.



In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a
random urine test with which I have no problem. What I do
have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to
people who don't have to pass a urine test.


Shouldn't one have to pass a urine test to get a
welfare check, because I have to pass one to earn it for
them? Please understand, I have no problem with helping
people get back on their feet. I do, on the other hand, have
a problem with helping someone sitting on their ASS, doing
drugs, while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money
the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to
get a public assistance check?



Pass this along if you agree or simply delete if you
don't. Hope you all will pass it along, though . . .
Something has to be done -- and soon!

rssHugger Offers Blog Exposure


I was trying to find an appropriate way to bring my web site to the web public and I found many poor sites that promised the world, so long as you could pay that much for the world. I happened to come across one web site that stated that I could get my web site exposure with minimal effort and a simple, easy to use, interface. rssHugger was a winner for me. I had no issues understanding what I needed to do as well as what they would do for me. Now I know your probably saying to yourself that it must have a price tag involved. Your right there is a price tag. You can review their site and make an honest, no holds barred review and post it like I'm doing here, or make a small donation and skip the review. The free by review listing lasts for 10 years. How can you go wrong with that? You can't, unless your that skeptical and if you were you wouldn't have read this far. Give them a look see and decide for yourself. What do you have to lose? Nothing! What do you have to gain? You know the answer!

Don't Forget This Day!



Tell your children and your grandchildren, nieces and nephews, that they were around for the biggest event in the history of the United States. Tell them they were witness to the very first African-American President Elect of the United States of America. The good old white boys club has been disbanded and the United States is now on the road to being really United! We are in this together and responsibility should be equally shared by all races and classes in EVERY job this country has to offer, including the highest office of the Executive Branch of the government! Now is the time to start down the road to solidarity and equality!

Congratulations President Elect Barack Obama, may you have fair winds and a star to steer by.

Where we stand Nov. 02, 2008

Obama Needs To Step Down From Campaign!

Recent events have come to light to lead me to believe that Senator Barack Obama should be required to resign from the current campaign for the office of President of the United States! I just heard from a friend of a guy who knew someone who may have knowledge of a heinous act perpetrated by an Obama family member somewhere in or around the U.S. territorial limits. This guy told me a bus driver who knows this passenger was told that his ex-girlfriend saw an Obama family members commit a despicable act of wanton disregard for the laws of this fine country. This cannot be refuted! This possible potential witness to this wanton act of lawlessness will come forward, when they can safely be brought forward from wherever they may be located. This person saw a third cousin on his aunts side actually cross the street AGAINST the light! At an ANGLE no less! Jaywalking is a serious offense and must be handled in the appropriate manner. Knowing this I say to Mr. Senator Obama, come clean and take responsibility for your family's crime. You have 32 hours to comply or else we may be forced to drop all alleged charges against person unknown.

You have no excuses! Everybody is required to know the exact standing and behaviors of ALL relatives they have, whether known or unknown, in whereabouts known or unknown! Everyone else knows, right?

Ohio Schoolchildren Earn Voting Rights?

The meltdown continues, folks. I'm actually starting to feel bad for John McCain, just a tiny bit. A recent rally in Ohio was expecting to draw in around 6000 McCain supporters in all their fervor and excitement. The local fire department was on alert in case something needed to be done, not to mention extra police presence to control the excited crowd. Even Joe the Plumber was going to be there next to his white knight John 'I'll save you Joe' McCain!

Oooops!


Next is an excerpt from the press describing what happened next.

A local school district official confirmed after the event that of the 6,000 people estimated by the fire marshal to be in attendance this morning, more than 4,000 were bused in from schools in the area. The entire 2,500-student Defiance School District was in attendance, the official said, in addition to at least three other schools from neighboring districts, one of which sent 14 buses. (This data can be verified).

To make matters worse for John, when he called upon Joe the Plumber to stand next to him on stage, Joe was a No-Show! Maybe someones toilet got plugged up. Still have to go to work whether it's John or Barack in charge!

How many times do people have to be told, including political advisers, that the American people Do Not Want a Negative and Dirty Campaign! How many times? Hello! Less than a week before the election and what do the McCain people do? They ramp up the negativity. I just watched a commercial for the RNC that showed a 9/11 terrorist on a drivers license where they say Obama will give them one. What rubbish! Do they think we are stupid? The American voters know how to take care of people that call them stupid, unless they really are! I happen to know one or two of them myself. The RNC is so single-minded that they are giving this election to Obama on a silver platter and the John McCain from 2000 is off somewhere fishing while the 2008 version is on Saturday Night Live. To each his own, my friends.

The only advice I can offer to the McCain-Palin campaign staff at RNC Headquarters is DON'T DRINK THE KOOL-AID!

Arnold Schwarzenegger aka Mr. Helper, Not!

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more ridiculous, it does. Now it's from the political sage wisdom of 'The Governator' Arnold Schwarzenegger, Republican Helper from, where else, California. Maybe it's the water or bad air or something. Arnold has crossed over where no one in their political right mind(that's an oxymoron if I ever heard one) and criticized an opponents physical appearance, especially their buttocks! Have you been in San Francisco giving speeches lately Arnold? Something you may want to talk to Maria about first? Do the words 'closet homosexual' mean anything to you? Maybe we should all go back and watch the uncut version of Pumping Iron. As I remember it there were a few subtle bi-curious moments or true man bonding and oiling in that movie. Maybe I'm wrong. BTW, how does it feel when someone does it to you, Herr Governator! Maybe we should talk about John McCain looking like her spent 40 years picking up garbage cans and now his arms are stuck! Maybe we should! Maybe, Arnold, you should have looked at those pictures of you in your Speedo! You should have donated that 10 years ago, at least! What's with the paunch Arnold? Not Mr. Olympia anymore? Obviously not! Cheap shot? You opened the door, Arnold.

The bottom line is that Mr. Schwarzenegger needs to shut his mouth until he realizes that he is no longer an actor on stage but an actor responsible to the voters. If you want to talk like a bitch then go to prison and be somebody's bitch! Your out of your league and the voters don't want to hear about Baracks' butt they want to hear about legitimate issues and this kind of talk is what is hurting McCains' chances for winning this election right now. The voters who aren't at the rally's because they can't afford to be there, are more concerned about paying for food and their bills, not someones ass! You, on the other hand, are quite wealthy and can take the time to think about a mans ass whenever you desire! I think that's sweet, in a sick way of course.

In closing I say this to Arnold. If you have nothing productive or relevant to say then SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP, Mr. Helper! John McCain doesn't need another idiot with a shovel full of dirt standing over him right now, Sarah's shovel has too much in it now!

Just a Little Election Reflection!

I'm getting sooo confused by the McCain camp recently.

I have heard Obama IS a terrorist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS a Muslim and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama DID leave his grandmother in Hawaii to die and now he DIDN'T!

I have heard that Obama IS a Communist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS a Socialist and now he ISN'T!

I have heard Obama IS too inexperienced to be president and now I hear NOTHING!

I have heard Obama is cool under fire and in control of himself and I have seen this myself!

I have heard Sarah Palin will 'take the blame' if McCain loses this election. I believe this is TRUE!

I have heard Sarah Palin is aware of this and is taking steps to protect herself from these charges! I think Sarah will be made a scapegoat whether they win or lose!

I have nothing personal against Ms. Palin. I just believe that she will need national political experience if she ever expects to rise up in the political hierarchy of Washington D.C. Hillary knows it's not easy to kick in the 'good ole boys club' door and have a cigar with the guys.

There is one definite in the universe and that is 'Everything Must Change With Time' or be swallowed up by it. Evolution isn't just for Biology Class anymore! Politics and personal attitudes must evolve as well or we may as well go back to living in trees. (Sorry Creationists, I have my beliefs too!).

NOVEMBER 4TH, GET OUT AND VOTE SMART! DON'T LET SOMEONE THINK FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO THINK FOR YOURSELF!!

The World: Iran mulls preemption strike against Israel

Sayed Safawi, director of Tehran’s Institute of Strategic Studies, a high-level Iranian think tank directly answerable to Ayatollah Khamenei, told foreign diplomats in London that Iranian military discusses a preemptive strike against Israel to prevent Israel’s preemptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities; Haaretz reports.
Iran lacks the missiles to massively breach Israeli air defenses, but even a few biological warheads can inflict serious damage on the Jewish state. Iran can do much better with the help of Syria’s mid-range missiles, but Syria is not ready for the 1973 scenario: attacking the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights to force the peace settlement.

What were they thinking?

McCain’s VP hopeful Sarah Palin is exposed spending $150,000 on clothes in the recent month. The money came from the Republican National Council and were spend in Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and similarly expensive stores.
Why couldn’t the lady keep her spending habits checked for another month?

The World: America starts talking to Iran

The US-Iranian negotiation on Iraq will start on Monday in Baghdad. America has nothing to offer Iran. Iran has nothing to compromise on: it wants to include Iraq in the Iran-dominated Shiite axis, and has almost succeeded by now. America announced its plans for withdrawal on several occasions and cannot pressure Iran.
Two days before starting negotiations with Iran, America has publicly launched a CIA war against Iran.

The World: More than a million US Muslims support al Qaeda

A third of American Muslims express positive opinion about al Qaeda or refused to answer. 26% or about a million US Muslims laud suicide attacks. The respondents show strong pro-Islamic sentiment, widely condemning the US antiterrorist operations. (Pew Research Center poll) There are 2 to 7 million Muslims in the US. Residents of Muslims countries show much stronger support for terrorism.

The World: Free travel to the US is for Israeli Arabs

Weeks ago, Internal Minister Sheetrit negotiated visa-free travel for Israelis to the United States. That move was a bit odd, as the government traditionally opposed travel restrictions on Israelis, many of whom would gladly move to a less scary place.
Now we learned that the Internal Ministry expects Arabs and Russian non-Jewish immigrants to make use of the new travel opportunities and leave Israel for illegal work in the United States.

Political Pollsters Are Killing the American Political System!

Barack Obama and John McCain are dead even in the XX poll today! Wow! I need to get out and vote!

Obama Leads McCain by 5 points in todays XX poll! Geez! McCain needs my support, I better get out and vote.

McCain overtakes Obama by 4 points in the XX poll today. Barack needs my vote, I better make sure I get out of work early that day.

Obama leads McCain with 2 days left by 12 points in the XX poll! Oh good, Obama's going to win, I can stay home and party while I watch on TV, AND Oh No! McCain's going to lose, there's no sense in voting now!

Does this sound familiar? I've heard it too many times in my lifetime. Just different names.

I say "To Hell with the Pollsters and the Polls they rode in on!". Americans have a history of being damned lazy when it comes to getting out and casting their vote. I'm not making that up, either. Given a good excuse to NOT vote, many will opt to stay home and watch 'fate' take it's course because the polls say there is a winner before the election really gets going. Remember "Dewey Wins!" where Truman actually won? The polls made the prediction and the newspaper went with it. Idiots, anything to beat the other papers to the deadline. We keep repeating the same mistakes of the past. Isn't that what history class was for? To AVOID repeating the mistakes of the past and learn what did work before! I guess there were a lot of dunces in those classes. What caused history class to be boring was the emphasis on dates and places with dates. They should have taught history as Cause and Effect Throughout Time. Who knew that Nixon would take 49 states in his election (poor Massachusetts and D.C.).

Getting back to my main thoughts regarding polls. Following polls is like chasing prices at gas stations, always looking for the one that suits you best! If poll XX says Joe Six-Pack is up by 5 and poll YY says Joe Plumbers-Helper is ahead by 6 and you support Mr. Six-Pack. Do you immediately believe poll YY to be crap? You Betcha, because Joe Six-Pack is a 'maverick'!

In a nutshell, polls are partisan BULL***T! They should have no place in our society and are a bane to our political freedom. They prejudge candidates based on predominantly false and potentially slanderous statements. I have heard outright lies spoken in this campaign, I won't say by whom, and have seen the follow-up polls announce the 'new' leader based upon these statements. I see coworkers wearing figurative blinders over their eyes because they are directed to think a particular way and follow doctrine set forth by their respective political parties with blind obedience. WAKE UP AMERICA! The rest of the world is waiting to see if we have grown up yet. Please, let's not disappoint our international peers because we are going to need them to recover from our financial situation no matter what anybody says.

I'll finish up by saying that I am going into this election as an Independent voter, I grew up voting as a Republican. I know what your saying, you've read my past posts and they appear partisan towards the Democratic candidate. No, I wrote those articles condemning the actions and decisions of a party structure and a man who had my vote, without question, in 2000. In 2008 I question the man and his motives. My major concern in this election is not the economy. Oh sure, it needs fixing but it will take more than 4 years to heal the bank account of America. I have been waiting for a candidate who WANTS TO OPENLY TALK to our friends and adversaries around the world. We haven't had any real dialogue with any countries since Bill Clinton. Why is that? Why do our allies now dislike and mistrust us? Why can't we find out what our enemies dislike about us so much and try to find a common ground to make peace before more blood is spilled. WHY CAN'T WE BE THE PEACEMAKERS WE ONCE WERE? WHY? It's because for the past 8 years we can't talk to the 'other guys' unless they jump through hoops and climb under bushes of preconditions. If I were one of those countries I'd say 'screw you' if you can't sit at a table with me and TALK! Talk is inexpensive and we need to save money! It's funny that places like North Korea and Iran have gone hard-line with us, especially since we used to have an open dialogue with them, albeit a strained dialogue, but a dialogue none the less.

Look what happened when Richard Nixon sent Henry Kissinger to China! The rest is history.

Did you learn that in school?

I did!

Todd Palin - Alaska Secessionist Party Member

I have no idea why the press hasn't gotten much of any steam on Todd Palin's affiliation with the Alaskan Secessionist Movement(AIP) ten years ago, a group who openly hates America and wants Alaska to break away from the U.S. The leader of this group affiliated himself with Iran in order to be able to address the United Nations to further their movement. Too bad Sarah had NO IDEA what Todd was up to while they were happily married. Such an UN-AMERICAN thing to do. I thought she said small towns were Pro American? I guess she lied BIG TIME!

I just don't understand why the press still follows this Bill Ayers business and does not address the Todd Palin America Go To Hell movement. Sounds Un-American to me!

The following is an excerpt from Political Punch.

Palin's husband Todd was a member of the AIP from October 1995 through July 2002, except for a few months in 2000. He is currently undeclared.

As part of their pushback against the charges of Lynette and Dexter Clark of the AIP, the McCain campaign says that Palin did not even attend the AIP convention in Wasilla in 1994.

But another former AIP official -- Mark Chryson, chairman of the AIP from 1995 to 2002 -- tells ABC News that "Palin was at the convention in 1994. She was there."

Was she a member?

Chryson can’t say. "She may have been, I do not know," he says. Their records don't go back that far.

"Ask Sarah," he suggests.

I'd love to. But she hasn't exactly been making herself available to the press.

Joe the 'unlicensed' Plumber

What rubbish this is. Joe won't be 'buying' that established plumbing business in Ohio until he gets his 'Plumbers License'. Oh, you didn't know Joe was NOT a licensed plumber? The business he wants to eventually buy evidently has a potential revenue of at least $250k a year? Isn't that putting the cart before the horse? Maybe that should be 'putting the turd before the plunger'. That's more appropriate for Mr. Joe the Plumber. Maybe John needs a good plunging AFTER your licensed.

Don't Vote for the Black Man!

That's right, I said it. Don't vote for the black man! Oh yes, that's right, don't vote for the white man either! Confused? Don't be, there is a good reason for it. We're not voting for a skin color contest, we're voting for the man who we feel confidence in, who we will trust with our lives, for the next four years. Not everyone will be happy with the outcome but then again you can't please everyone. A Democracy means that the majority 'vote' rules. What happens when a candidate has a tie and (hypothetically) 1 vote held the key, and you didn't vote? It means you effected the majority and may have allowed the minority to win because more of them voted than your party did. To that I say "too bad for you" now live with it and don't complain. You lose the right to complain when you don't vote for anyone because you chose not to participate. The best way for the nation to unite and begin to heal is to get out and vote, participate, let your voice count! Don't vote for a candidate based on their color, that's an insult to us all, especially to the candidate. It's like saying you like red hair, so if Bozo the Clown ran for office he'd get your vote because he had red hair. Be Smart and Vote Smart, but mostly - VOTE!
ps. Did I mention that you voted for Bozo for Secretary of the Treasury?

A Simple Message to Voters.

PLEASE! Do Not Sucumb to the Hate Mongering that is going on right now! Insecurity and mistrust bread this behavior. Desperation will fuel hatred among the people, causing good people to act irrationally! Ask yourself "Why does this person allow me to develop this hate and not try to temper it for the sake of all?". This is not the act of a responsible person, or persons. This behavior goes back to the George W. election where hate was directed at the media, just as racial hatred has recently been directed at an African-AMERICAN media sound-man. Is this being done now because they got away with it then? Does this make it right? If it does, My God, what have we become? Are we dogs running with the pack? Do what the Alpha dog directs, right or wrong? Lat time I looked in the mirror I saw a human, not an animal! Stop treating people like animals because if you REALLY cared about the citizens of this nation, Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin, you would be trying to heal the wounds that hurt so much and not rub salt in, to be self serving. Public servant, I thought, meant just that. Serving the people, not waiting to be served! Getting back to the hateful demonstrations at your rallys. There was a man in the 1930's who was a master at manipulating a crowd that was under financial hardships. He knew that to succeed he would have to direct the hatred somewhere else, to a group he hated himself. He knew he could accomplish his goals because the people needed to vent their frustrations and needed hope in return. What this eventually became was the Holocaust and the man who orchestrated it was Adolf Hitler. Remember, the citizens gave him everything he wanted and he gave them back more than anyone ever bargained for! This is the wrong way to enlist political support in a free country. Stop this insanity now!

Is McCain Starting a New National Socialist Party in the U.S.?

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse, it did! John McCain has brought this presidential campaign to an all time low for any candidate the U.S. political system has ever seen. Why does he feel that the ONLY way he can get elected now is if he and his Ober-Fuehrer Sarah start a hate war against Barack Obama. Excuse me, did I say hate war? I meant to say racial hate war. What happens when you get the blood up in angry voters who are already mad at the government about the economy and make then question your opponents citizenry? When you ask "Who is he?" and when she makes outright lies that were disproved over a year ago. I guess if John wants to have the 4th Reich in place before he moves on to be with his 3rd Reich mentor he will have to get VERY DIRTY indeed. What a sad loser he is and what a brainless automaton she is to even get involved with this mindless garbage. Hello! Doesn't anybody see what kind of president he would make when he stoops to these low tactics? Do you really think that he cares a teeny tiny bit about "Joe six-pack"? Sarah is not much better. At her Clearwater, Florida rally she got people so mad about Obama and the press that they actually went after the press and verbally assaulted one African-American news worker with racial epithets. Nice example for potential future leaders of this great country. What do you think the rest of the world is thinking about us now. I think they'll be keeping a tighter reign on the money and some will keeps fingers closer to buttons they've been staying away from. You thought the Bush administration was bad? If he gets elected just wait. You haven't seen bad yet!
Just when this nation needs to come together to rebuild, McCain's storm troopers are out to destroy the fabric of America with hate and lies. John, what did that prison camp do to your mind?

Obama In, McCain Out! Take Sarah with you!


How much longer do we have to put up with the ramblings of this tired, sour old man called John McCain and his equally moronic slave of Creationism, Sarah Palin? When will they let the old lies die? Why is it necessary to run a dirty campaign if you have the best of everything on your side? I hate to tell you two idiots that I was going to vote for McCain until I saw how miserable and ugly John could get and how responsible and cool Obama stayed while putting up with your septic political diatribe. How about telling some true for a change? Why do your outdated speech writers need to keep bringing up a lie about a remark Sen. Obama allegedly made about attacking Afghanistan when the Associated Press, a year ago, disqualified it as a lie created out of context when it was actually George W. Bush that made the worse remark. Maybe they couldn't afford new speech writers so they had to hire last years version with last years rumors. I'm sorry to ramble but I just couldn't believe what I was reading in the Huffington Post and it infuriated me how desperate some political losers can get. All I see is a dirty campaign being run by two dirty bas***ds! Sarah needs to break away before her future in politics is harmed. Wait a minute, she needs to take her politics/religion somewhere else because they don't belong in the same room! So sayeth the Constitution of the U.S. Obama deserves it more because they don't deserve it at all!

Nailin Paylin Strikes a Chord in the Wrong Direction!


That Maverick, Sarah Palin has finally made the big time! Congratulations, Sarah! Larry Flynt is going to immortalize you in his feature length film, Nailin' Paylin! See what respect the cutesy candidate gets you when it should have been the serious candidate? What does she think she'll do when McCain passes away in a year or two, wink at Putin for arms negotiations? Well, back to what you asked for Miss Winky. Your in good company Sarah because Hillary Clinton will be portrayed by Nina Hartley, flesh screen legend! Sarah will be played by Lisa Ann, who "will be nailing the Russians who come knocking on her back-door." Hmm, maybe Putin WOULD like to negotiate with her as president! This link is to the script for the first scene of the movie, but a note of caution. This script is not for anyone under the age of 18 or those easily offended by sexually explicit dialog. If either is the case just click here!

Sarah Palin's Alaskan Wolf Slaughter.





PETA? PETA? Are you home? Is anyone home at PETA? Are you afraid to speak out against a conservative wild animal kill supporter or do you prefer to go after Hormel for killing pigs for meat? Ooops! I just saw your home page and Hormel won the top story! I did see that Caroline Kennedy from Defenders of Wildlife spoke out against what is going on in Alaske. In fact Sarah Palin wanted to PAY hunters $150.00 per wolf shot. You don't have to take my word for it, here is the link to the article from Sept. 02, 2008. I also understand she supports legalizing the hunting of wolves from helicopter which is one of the principal methods of culling wolves that nearly lead to their extinction (and did lead to their extinction in the lower 48 states until the fairly recent Yellowstone wolf reintroduction brought a limited number of wolves back), here is the link to that Sept. 09, 2008 article on another site. We know know that she likes to kill things using modern methods. Too bad some of these wolves destined for the pelt knife couldn't be reintroduced back to areas where they became extinct to revitalize those Ecosystems. Too bad for them I guess! Didn't Congress pass the Federal Airborne Hunting Act of 1972, making it illegal for hunters to shoot animals from a plane or helicopter?

But Alaska uses a loophole covering "predator control," Slate notes. Wolves, foxes and coyotes can be gunned down to protect "land, water, wildlife, livestock, domesticated animals, humans or crops." See? When it comes to killing a "predatory species" she can be a 'good politician'. Hey, wait a minute. Aren't humans a predatory species? Ahhh, blood lust is a beautiful thing....I guess. If we can't eat it, work it or make it a pet.....then KILL IT! You know how understanding and compasionate Pit Bulls are! Maybe it's the lipstick?

Political Contributions from Oil Companies. A MUST READ!


I went to one of my regular environmental sites that I read (Eco Friendly Life and Toys) and they had a link you should definitely look at. If nothing else, just look to see who has the most support in this election from Big Oil! Just click the link I have provided and many thanks to Kim at
Eco-Friendly Life and Toys.

Big Oil Money Grabbers

ps. I even saw where my local representative, Ginny Brown-Waite - Hernando County, FL, has earned over $19k in Big Oil money. I wonder if that includes a gas card for the county vehicles? NOT!

Three words to helpful Democrats - SHUT YOUR MOUTHS!




I wasn't planning on writing this article. I thought people would have seen the damage the wrong thing being said would cause and the ammunition it would give to the opposition. I was wrong! I never thought career politicians would want to get up in front of microphones and cameras and tell the world "Look at me, I'm so stupid and now you all know it!" We now know
it! Is it just me or is anybody else seeing the demise of the Democratic Party right before our very eyes? Why is it that the Dem party had 8 YEARS to prepare for this election and now that it's here they wish to destroy any chance Obama has to wage a successful campaign against their Republican opponent, John McCain. The Republicans had 8 years and they came up with ...oh, never mind! Back to the self destructing Dems! I have been hearing from my staunch Republican voting, Rush Limbaugh listening, co-workers about people (I will not mention their names, they know who they WERE) telling a wheelchair ridden person to 'stand up' and then telling everyone else they should stand up because he couldn't, not to mention that he said Hillary would have been a better choice than himself! Seasoned politician OR salted turkey? You be the judge because he's obviously chosen himself as his own executioner. I have heard about the lipstick wearing pig and yes, I know there was more to the story, but who in the media cares, this was a better story. Bad speech writers, Bad! No cabinet post for you! No loss, you have to be the president to do that and at this rate they're safe. Don't they realize that the NEW form of reporting is called "Excerpt Reporting" where a slice of what you say SUMS UP the entire speech! I also heard about a Mr. Bigmouth in Tennessee making a helpful reference to Pontius Pilate and Sarah Palin. Duid you know they were both governors? Off With Their Heads! You sir are a damned IDIOT! I know there are more 'slogans and anecdotes' being mouthed by 'helpful Democrats' everywhere and to everyone who wishes to stand up and be heard to defend the Democratic Party of the United States of America I say....

THINK 10 TIMES BEFORE SPEAKING THEN SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!

I am so disgusted the way the Democrats have fallen apart and are running separate campaigns. I thought this was going to be a tight campaign, not to mention a historic one. I was actually looking forward to a spirited campaign from both sides and what I got was this pile of manure. Well, it will be historic for the winner no matter what happens. I just never thought I'd see so much in-fighting and headline grabbing away from a chosen candidate by their own party. Start writing your concession speech, unless that is, your cracker jack campaign hasn't already written it. Good job Hillary, you should be running the CIA, I'm impressed!

Note: I am neither registered with, or support, either party. I am proud to keep my Independent affiliation. Can you blame me? Give me a candidate I can give my trust to and believe in and I will convert immediately. God Bless America....PLEASE!

CNN article food for thought.



I was curious about Sarah Palin and her religious beliefs. First of all, I base no opinion or judgement on a candidate based on their religious beliefs or life direction for them or their family. I just don't know what she is? She WAS a Pentacostalist until 2002 when she joined the Republican party. Did joining the Republican party become her new religion? I don't know, I really don't. Why should it matter? Is it because her (past?) faith believed in 'speaking in tongues, faith healings and end times(end of the world in violence bringing the return of Jesus Christ)'? Many religions have derivations of these beliefs and practices. So why should it matter? Why hide your faith? Why not stand up for what you believe? I hope it's not because you don't want to attract negative opinion. This is America and we all have rights that we should not feel uncomfortable standing by. This was just a question I had and like I said, I have no issue if someone is religious or not. This is America and we can believe in what we want to and our government is there to protect us. I am posting the link to the CNN article so you may extract your own opinion from it...CNN 09/10/08.

Just to be fair and even-handed here is the link to the Wasilla Assembly of God statement on Sarah Palin.

Get out and Vote Smart!


Election Reforms by Me!




We, as a nation, need to reform the election process to involve the entire nation and not just selected segments of it. I do not like racial, sexual, religious or idealogical segregations in the voting process. What I mean by this in layman's terms is simply black voters for the black candidate, Catholic voters for the Catholic candidate, or female voters for the female candidate, to name just a few. I believe we do ourselves a great injustice in this kind of voter mentality. We need to break away from the norm and take control of our country by making our 1 vote count again! I propose a very few simple fixes to the antiquated system we now see abused before our eyes every election year.

1. Put term limits BACK where we voted them to be. Congress doesn't need to tell us what they're going to do, they work for US, that's why we voted FOR term limits!

2. Put the Electoral College back where it belongs - IN THE TRASH! We don't need, or want, it if we are to have everyones vote count. We vote only to then wait for them to vote? Who made up this garbage? I know - a politician! We will become a Popular Vote government as we should be. How do you expect to excite people to get out and vote when they think someone will take their vote and give it to someone else! I believe that only then will the people who don't vote, because their votes don't count, will be encouraged to cast a vote that does count!

3. Campaign spending is to be capped with a maximum spending limit by month for each candidate - no exceptions!

4. November of the year prior to the election a Presidential and Vice Presidential candidate will be put forth by each party to campaign for the year so we all get to know each and every one of them, good and not so good! Selection of the candidates would be in the form of a primary during that preceding November.

5. This is the big one! There will be 4 political parties on the ballot which comprise the top 4 popular parties. The parties I would see would be Republican, Democrat, Independent and Libertarian. If another party becomes more popular than Libertarian they would take their place and all other candidates would fall under the Independent ticket. If a different party dominates the independent ticket, exceeding the Libertarian party, they would take over the Libertarian slot and the Libertarian would fall under the Independent ticket.

I suppose that if I wanted to I could add more but that may be constituted as creating BIG government, which is the last thing we need or can afford.

Thank you for taking the time to read this expression of my ideas. You can't institute change by sitting your arse on the sofa, regardless of how loud you yell at the television. Remember, if you don't cast your vote then you need to shut your mouth and don't complain because you have no right to say anything about something you wanted nothing to do with! If you did cast your vote and wish to complain then step up to the podium and I will defend your right to speak. This is what this country is built on - Rights for the people!

Get out and VOTE SMART!

Hooo-rah! We're Number One!


HELLO? IS ANYBODY THERE?
I hope the American public doesn't think they're watching a television show, or something worse, like reality TV. This is where you vote for and elect the 2 most powerful individuals that control your lives and carry launch codes for a nuclear arsenal with them at all times. These are the people that decide if your family member is going to die in Iraq, Afghanistan or where ever they chose to send them to die in combat! They will control whether you spend your hard earned paycheck on gasoline or retirement, or worse - for food! How many people have had to give up their family pet becasue they can't afford to feed it anymore. I do care if our VP nominee has international experience and I do care if the other candidate is a self proclaimed 'pit bull with lipstick'. WHAT? How could someone in this situation say something so stupid and have people cheer? I thought everyone learned from the last 8 years what they didn't want. I guess I was wrong. I guess we should have spent more money on mandatory school education 20 years ago, maybe then we could keep up with our Asian and European counterparts. One thing we can cheer about in America. We are #1 at something bigger. We have the distinction of being the fattest people in the world!! Maybe if we don't really try we can be the stupidest also! Looks like were working on it.

Hip, Hip, Hooray! We're #1! We're #1!

Getting pretty sick of the hatred already.


It's not even November yet and I can't believe how upset people are when they happen to mention a presidential candidate. I've heard yelling, insults and veiled threats made by zealots of their party's nominees. Someone at work asked me who I would vote for and I happened to say that unless things changed I would vote for Mr. XXXXXX because of this reason and that. I no sooner got this out of my mouth and I was called a "communist" by someone who was listening at the next desk, who was NOT part of the conversation. I was appalled because this could be no further from the truth because I happen to believe in what this nation stands for, or stood for before GW came to town.
I partially blame the politicians for this mentality because they could ease tensions if they wanted to. No, I blame the commentators on radio, television and the printed media. I work with one fellow who listens to Rush everyday and everyday he gets arrogant and insulting if you don't agree with what he has been fed on the radio. This is just one example of the single mindedness that is 'red meat' to the press and the spin doctors. It makes me so upset being around these party 'alpha types' that sometimes I feel like my vote will be wasted on hate mongers, liars and flim-flam artists in Washington D.C. I will not have my clear judgement injected with doubt and I will cast my vote for who I believe will better serve my country's needs. My vote will count if everyone will cast their vote as well. We should be thankful that we are allowed to vote, most nations don't have that privilege. Think about it! Vote Smart!

ST. PAUL -- So much for privacy.

Sarah and Todd Palin insisted they wanted to protect the privacy of their 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, even as they announced on Labor Day that she is pregnant.

Then Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston, the 18-year-old father-to-be, arrived at the Minneapolis airport today for the Palin family greeting of Sen. John McCain, the presidential nominee-to-be of the Republican Party.

Levi Johnston's appearance is as public a statement as possible that he plans to step up to the plate: The couple will marry, the Palins say. They planned to all along Johnston's mother says, even before Bristol Palin became pregnant.

Sarah Palin's appearance at this novel arrival ceremony is as public a statement as possible that she supports her daughter's choice -- indeed hails it as an affirmation of the "pro-life'' cause which she supports, an affirmation appreciated by the conservative, religious base of her party.

John McCain's appearance in the picture is as public a statement as possible that he accepts the whole family, a measure in and of itself of how far American politics has come: There was a time when pregnant teenagers were hidden, shipped off to schools of their own. In this time, a pregnant teenager and her boyfriend can be embraced by a candidate for president, in the most public fashion possible.

A public picture of extended family values.

So, so much for privacy, Palin family and McCain family alike. They have chosen a public path for America's at least temporarily most famous teen mom. And ultimately the public will make the call about what, if anything, it all means.

1+1+5+1-1=VP Nominee! What about Qualifications?



This election has a funnier storyline than The Tonite Show with Jay Leno!
Let's see if I have the math correct, McCain style that is!
1- years as Governor of Alaska
1- prior job as a sports anchor in Alaska (was she a mayor too?)
5- children
1- pregnant 17 yr old daughter (Alaska age of consent is 16)
less 1-father to be married to pregnant daughter at some point in time. What about that hateful MySpace page that he tried to get rid of. Inside Edition found it!
I think this snowball is just starting to roll down the mountain folks, stay tuned!

Hey John! Way to go, Buddy! Know how to pick 'em, Johnny! If you win and need something done for you I hear she's a great "organizer" and "hard worker", and a good shot I understand. I guess the VP job is now, a 'WORK STUDY PROGRAM', at the local community college. Have you signed her up for classes yet. Better hurry, spaces are filling fast! Hey John. Was this a 'NYAH, NYAH I GOT A GIRL ON MY SIDE' ploy to destroy the Dems? I hear she got excited when she learned part of her job would be RACE issues in America. She thought she'd be getting 'Pit Passes' for the race for her and her brood. Did she kill a moose too? I heard something about a bikini picture, probably a Photoshop job.

I have to end this now because this has disgusted me from the beginning. We have 2 men, 1 black and 1 white, from the U.S. Senate running against 1 Senator and a woman sportscaster from Alaska who JUST became Governor of the same state with 0 experience in politics, let alone world and domestic affairs. Dr. Kevorkian, where are you when we need you? Where are all the QUALIFIED candidates. We couldn't find any after 8 YEARS?!

First of the Month!


White Rabbit! The Brits will know what I mean. :)

Gold for Cash? Right!


This is going to be a short piece today because I can't take watching these commercials anymore. Why would somebody actually think that if they put their gold in a special envelope and mail it away they will get an honest, fair market value for it in the mail a day later. That's right, I said a day later. I watched this commercial too many times to know I heard right. The woman said she "sent back my first wedding ring and received a check the very next day"! WOW! I guess the increase in the postal rates really did buy faster service. Yeah, RIGHT! I knew that after making this type of claim the rest of the offer had to be far from true. What they don't tell you when you send in, say a class ring, is that most of the weight of that heavy ring is mostly junk metal that you are mot getting anything for. I wouldn't pay someone for it either, why should they. Every time there is a commodity that spikes in value you will always find marketers that are right there to make some money on it.
Seller beware, the gold you are mailing may have more value as a complete piece sold to a jeweler, or pawn agent, than you will receive as 'scrap' value. Several jewelers told me the same thing. Oh yes, what happens to any stones that are attached to the gold? I'm sure those will be returned with your check. Right? ;)

Who's It Gonna Be?




I have a political question I'd like to put to you the reader of this blog. It's not a difficult question, just a question to see how politically savvy you really are. Okay? Here we go.

Do you vote for Obama because he is the best qualified black candidate, or
Do you vote for McCain because he has a female vice presidential running mate?

If you answered Yes to either of these scenarios you are indeed an IDIOT! Look what you are voting for? Your vote will determine who leads the largest free democratic nation in the world! If you cast your vote because he is BLACK or she is a WOMAN you are throwing away something that many, many people wish that they had. A vote that counts! I could care less what color someone is or what kind of genitalia they have. I want someone who will use all of their skills and abilities to successfully lead this country back to where we were before the dark time of the past 8 years.

I sincerely hope that whoever wins this election, they will go beyond basic expectations and respect our wishes as Americans, as well as get us back the respect we once had, with other nations that we lost under President Cheney's time in office. No, that's not a typo, think about it.
Be smart! Be selfish! Vote for the BEST candidate based on who they are, not what they are.
I've said my part, now go out and do yours. Get out and VOTE and make your voice count.

ps. I'm sure the Clintons would like to see McCain/Palin win so that Hillary can go up against Palin in 2012. I don't think John McCain's health will allow him any more than 1 term if he wins. Just my opinion and observations.

Note: The size, placement and postures presented in the pictures shown are in no way indicative of any candidate I am supporting, or trying to direct more attention towards. I tried to get a decent picture of both parties.

That Slippery Stuff from Where? Who's Packin?




I'm a little sleep deprived so I wanted to ask a question. It is my understanding that most of the crude oil, the United States imports, is from our neighbor to the north, Canada? So why is it then we are so dependent on what level of oil production the middle east can turn out to set our prices? Also, why is it that the oil companies seem to be portrayed as 'victims of circumstance' that happen to be reaping huge profits at the same time? One last thing to ponder because I still don't understand. How is this supposed to work out for the consumer? Why do we give the oil companies these tax breaks for developing 'NEW' energy alternatives to break away from fossil fuel dependence? Isn't it their primary duty to ensure we stay addicted to fossil fuels? Wouldn't alternative energy be contrary to their business plans? I know if I ran the oil conglomerates I would do everything in my power to stop alternative energy sources to continue my windfall profits. I guess I would make a bad executive in this field, or would I? In Florida, Governor Charlie Crist has fought long and hard to stop offshore drilling because of environmental and tourism reasons (people from Wisconsin, or wherever, don't want to see oil rigs many miles out in the Gulf of Mexico. Talk about great eyesight!). I don't think the Chinese oil drilling contractors care about all that while they prepare to drill off the coast of Cuba for oil for the Cuban govt. Hey, isn't that the same body of water next to Florida? Too bad their safety and environmental standards don't meet ours. By the way, did I mention something Gov. Crist did fight to get into law? In Florida you can legally bring a gun to work but you must leave it in your car trunk (I guess that means you don't need to drive home to get it when you get fired, it's already there). Disney World was trying to fight it because they have classrooms on the property but the fight wasn't going too well last time I heard anything. I think I'm tired now and I thank you for your patience. These are just my thoughts and if I am mistaken please let me know so I can make any necessary corrections.
Till next time.
