If you disagree... okay then, click the pick to buy your costume...
We got a call while I was out shopping and it was Barack Obama's campaign. Husband answers...
"Hello, I am calling from the Democratic Campaign of Barack Obama, and we wanted to know, as supporters of the Obama campaign, will you sign up to canvas for us in Maryland this weekend?"
Husband replies... "Dude, I think you got the wrong house, we're republican."
"Is this the house of E.L?"
"Yeah, that's my wife, and she is a staunch Republican, no way are we voting Democratic"
"Well sorry for that.. You folks have a great evening"
They hang up and I get home and get the run down of the conversation.
I * 69 the call...and get the following.
"Yes someone called my house campaigning for Barack Obama?"
"Yes, I made that call?"
"Well my husband made a mistake in his response. We are republican, but what he doesn't know that I am voting for Barack Obama this time around."
"oh.... wow... um... I hope I didn't get you in trouble?"
laughter ensued...lots of it.
Here it is folks.
Do I trust him? not fully.
but I am casting my vote for Barack Obama.
We can't have another 4 years of the Bush administration folks.
It's the first time I will be voting Democratic. Yes, there are still questions I have about Barack Obama.
Barack Obama will be the first Black President of the United States of America, and the first step in the right direction.

I took a drink from my can of Miller Lite, wiped the cold foam
from my lips, lifted my darkened Ray Ban sunglasses and
stared directly into the eyes of this nosy ass neighbor and
then calmly replied ..
"I am. ...That's why she cuts the grass!"

"It should go to middle-class people, people who make $150,000 a year."
If our taxes go up anymore, I don't know how we will be able to keep providing the way we do.

How does someone commit such an unspeakable crime?Jennifer's mother, brother, and nephew were all killed in one night.
Over the weekend, emotional pleas from the family were found on every news outlet, followed by Julian's picture.
A sweet, innocent, 7 year old little boy. How scared he must have been.
The thought makes me sick.
I sit here, honestly, trying not to cry.
I used to question whether or not emotions were real. How can we go from one extreme to the next and think that it's normal to 'feeeel' that way?
How can one person be so totally in love with someone... and that person not be in love with them? You would think that there was some deep connection that caused someone to fall so deeply and helplessly in love with the other person, right?
So then there is the reverse. I understand hatred. But how can you loathe someone for something so ridiculous that happened 10-15 years ago? How can someone hold a grudge for that long and still get enraged talking about it?
How can someone that hasn't seen a person in 10 years, still feel 'love' . Or have a dream and wake up feeling sad it was just a dream?
Can you be in love with two people at the same time?
Then there is mother/child/ father/child love? That is crazy love... I would step over anyone for my children.
Then there are feelings of 'like' and 'fondness'...
and Sadness.... why cry?... does it help? but we cry.. and boy oh boy when I am upset..do I cry.
Sometimes I scream in my pillow I am so upset/hurt.
And there is always grief. We have all experienced grief.
you go on a myspace page and there are more than 50 way's to describe how you are feeling for the day/ your mood...
Where does this post come from? just a dream I had.

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
Come on Biden....WTF??? I just pootied in my pants.... way to make the American people feel safe and secure.
WAIT THERE'S MORE!!!!
Gird your loins,(I think my husband has those)" Biden told the crowd. "We're gonna win with your help, God willing, we're gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It's like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just (this is more than just...just... just) a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy."
yeah you think I made a typo didn't you...nope, that is word for word....hold on...don't leave me yet!!!
"I've forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know, so I'm not being falsely humble with you. (crickets chirping now) I think I can be value added, but this guy has it," the Senate Foreign Relations chairman said of Obama. "This guy has it. But he's gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? Why is the polling so down? Why is this thing so tough?' We're gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I'm asking you now, I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you're going to have to reinforce us."
"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'," Biden continued. "Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound." ( Or the sound of crickets chirping)
Whoa, wait a minute, yo!! yo yo yo! Wait a minute...is that sound, or was that a sound of popular, I mean a popular sound, aw shit yo, I am popularly sound, I think..wait...say that again....Yo.
Now folks, I have been swaying in the wind lately, even kinda thought I might vote for Obama, then McCain, then Obama, then McCain, and realized that the Vice Presidents are the one's I am really looking at this time. And honestly, I didn't understand a F***ing word of that from Biden.
What are we getting ourselves into?

Are Obama's ideas of "Sharing the Wealth" ... socialist?
Let's look at this a bit.
Socialism is defined "social and economic doctrine that calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work in isolation but live in cooperation with one another. Furthermore, everything that people produce is in some sense a social product, and everyone who contributes to the production of a good is entitled to a share in it. Society as a whole, therefore, should own or at least control property for the benefit of all its members."
So are McCains statements entirely true? I think it's middle ground, as much as anything else is in this campaign. That is what pisses me off so much, everything is so middle and there is no clear definition on either side as to where each stands. Too much is left up to compromising (or flip flop)
I am not for over taxing the poor, and I am not for over taxing the rich. I don't think that $250,000 is rich either. Not when you are taxed higher, have to provide insurance for every employee, taxed on self employment, taxed on goods still in stock, then taxed on the things you buy, places you live...ect. tax tax tax.
why can't everyone be taxed equally? would we generate the same income?
Maybe that is a niave thought...or ignorant. I will leave that up to you to correct me.
lets have a discussion this time folks... I know you are here b/c my 12,000 hits on my hidden tracker say so.

To me (my opinion), I think it's too lenient. Why should the sign look like any other?
I like the judge in Kansas that ordered a sex offender to post this sign. He had to have one on his car and his house. The guy of course said that he thought the punishment was too severe, but what about what the children he molested are going to suffer with for the rest of their lives? Don't they deserve some assurance that this offender won't re-offend, and don't the people in his neighborhood deserve to know who is living next to them. I think the moment he committed the crime, he gave up his rights to live in peace.
I like New York, where the police will knock on your door and tell you that a sex offender has just moved in, They aren't allowed to live with family members or friends that have children, they aren't allowed to live with in a quarter mile of a school, and everything is posted on the net with the details of their crimes. But where do they go, they go to Coram, that creepy town in Long Island that has 45 high-risk registered sex offenders in the town, 17 on the same block and 7 in the same house. So I say put out a sign. And in the case of Coram...a BIG one!
Shit I would say, tattoo their arms....but to me.. I think that there is no rehabilitation for sex offenders. I think that sex offenders should get life in prison. I'm not saying that the 18 year old that got convicted of statutory rape of his 17 year old girl friend should (some of those laws need to be re-visited). I am saying that people who molest young children, rape, torture, people who rape women (& men) you get my drift, should go to prison with no possibility of parole. I would be willing to pay a little more in my taxes if it assured my children were safe(r)
Don't know how many live near you? Go to The National Registry of Sex Offenders
you might be surprised by the result.

But instead I am feeling like a victim today. Or should I say my son, Tyler, was the victim today.
He had to get his shots, and like his mother he is a bit scared of shots.
I have learned to be a big girl now. After Tyler recieved so many shots his first hours of life, IV's and such, then in his first year had two major surgeries. I had no rights to complain.
I suffered through numerous amounts of shots when pregnant with Emma, and thank God for every one because I have been blessed with a perfect little girl.
But today, even I was scared by the mean nurse that had cared for my son. The taunting voice and the mean threats, and to add to it all, she left a hand print, bruised on my childs arm, from holding him so tightly.
And it was not the first time.
So here is my letter. (if you want to read it)

HOMELESS 'DRIVEN' TO VOTE OBAMA (click headline for article)
"CLEVELAND - Volunteers supporting Barack Obama picked up hundreds of people at homeless shelters, soup kitchens and drug-rehab centers and drove them to a polling place yesterday on the last day that Ohioans could register and vote on the same day, almost no questions asked...."
"Early today, Stadlin's van picked up William Woods, 59, at the soup kitchen of the Bishop Cosgrove Center."I never voted before," Woods said, because of a felony conviction that previously barred him from the polls. "Without this service, I would have had no way to get here."
Am I missing something here? I can understand drumming up voters and all, but picking up the homeless and shuffling them to the voting polls b/c you can register the same day as you can vote without any background verification in Ohio, seems a bit wrong and desparate.
Yes I know that the homeless still have a right to vote, and that is not what I am saying. But I have a problem b/c they are taking advantage of the Ohio laws which might lead to higher fraud in the voting process. Hasn't this been a problem in the past?
3.5 million people are homeless in the United States. I wonder, will voting help them? Or are they going to be used as pawns of the process. I guess it would be illegal to promise them a meal if they vote.
Just something about it doesn't sit well for me.
