It's time

If the election were today, I would vote for Obama. It's still five days until super-tuesday but I have been impressed thus far. Personally I don't think Hillary is electable at this time....I have never been a fan of hers and only lean her direction because of Bill and even he is wearing thin on me right now.
On the right I think the biggest competition would come from McCain. The others are batshit crazy and completely out of touch with the people. I think McCain got seriously screwed by the republicans the last time around and we ended up with the worst president in the history of the country.
On super tuesday I will vote Obama.

There is one absolute positive about the coming Presidential election. There is no chance that George Bush will be elected. Things can only get better.


I met a guy at work. He is about my age. He was born in Cuba and came to the United States in 1980. He has never been back to his home. We chatted about the U.S. and it's bizzare problem with Cuba. For fifty years we have made Cuba off-limits. We have trade sanctions. We have severed diplomatic ties. We have them on "full shun" mode. They are dirty rotten communists. Fidel is a bad person and that is that.

While we currently are indebt to "COMMUNIST" China to the tune of 400 billion dollars. The trade disparity is of epic proportions. Their human rights policy is disgusting. Yet if they chose to they could destroy our economy. Not by calling in the debt, but merely by turning off the "loan faucet". Mortgage rates would explode. Money would become very expensive.

Or they could shut off the amount of goods they sell to the U.S. and the laws of supply and demand would cause significant inflation. Granted they are making so much money from the U.S. that these scenario's are highly unlikely. But shouldn't it be a concern that another nation could literally crush us from within by destroying our economy? Granted we are trying pretty damn hard to destroy our own economy right now.

Question?: didn't we drive the Soviets bankrupt by driving them to spend beyond their ability?

From my ultra-right wing sister

Electile Dysfunction: the inability to become aroused over any of the choices for president put forth by either party in the 2008 election year.

Mitt being Hip!

Gotta Love Mitt.
oh, so very white.
oh so out of touch
Another proud Republican moment.

From my 78 year old mother

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine and those who don't.

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in feces In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine &beer (or tequila, rum,
whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink win e and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service

Dictators or Democracy

Which do we want really?
Some we want to beat up some we give 20 billion dollars arms deals. (and they sponsor terror and fund Hamas)

It's a good thing?!

Good thing we don't have Socialized Medicine. We would hate to have the same shitty care that they have in the UK or in Canada.

I am sure everyone has seen this "nutbag's" story on the news. I am sorry he had a bad experience in the ER and during his surgery. No one deserves that. I am so happy that he is now informing us that there are problems in the system.

When my son was four he fell off of an old trunk and cut his hand on the latch. It was clear that he needed stitches. His mother whisked him to the ER, a nearly empty ER, where they sat for 3 hours. The four year old was stoic (more so than the mother). His only question, as he looked at the bloody towel around his hand, was "why won't they fix it?"

A handful of years ago, while in San Antonio, a friend of mine thought he was having a heart attack. Chest pain, shortness of breath, numbness in the left arm...the whole scary list. There is a hospital two blocks from the hotel..but the doorman at the Hotel says "don't go to that one, it is horrible...go to..." and I have forgotten the name, but it was a good 10-15 blocks away. So, zoom, we go.....we arrive at a crowded ER and I check him in at the desk. I tell the admitting humanoid his symptoms and that he has had previous heart issues...we are asked to fill out paper work and have a seat. Six hours later....SIX hours later (and yes I did ask several times how long it would take and did he have to fall over to see someone)
Six hours later he is moved to a long hallway that is partitioned off with those hanging drape things...they put him in a bed...and leave us for another 2.5 hours!!

A doctor finally comes, zap, zing...they do an ekg (in a normal amount of time) and they admit him, and basically leave him in a room (which is filthy and actually had splotches of someones blood on the floor) for the night and toss him out the next day..telling him to come back if the symptoms return.

Cost? $4700.00

Our health care sucks. Granted if you have the coin or insurance and need significant services....yes the world flocks to the US. But for the average persons, average care? It basically sucks and it costs tooooo much.

Thank you George Bush!!!

Thank you for making more Americans care about elections. Thank you for motivating people to pay attention to campaigns. Thank you for showing the entire planet that who the President is matters. Thank you Mr. President and the past Congress that should us all just how important "checks and balances" truly are. Thank you for ignoring so many aspects of the Constitution, because as they say ,"you really don't know what you have until it's gone".

Thank you for letting us meet all those wonderful friends of yours; Dick Cheney, Carl Rove, Scooter Libby, Tom Delay, Ken Lay....
oh goodness the list is so long..... go here for more fun facts about the legacy that this President has left.
