The one thing I left out of my lengthy diatribe about the GOP debate from January 30th is the timetable debate or name calling. Again, this was a discussion (again, I hope irony or sarcasm in blog terms comes from italics) between John McCain and Mitt Romney. Who else would it have been between since I think… Continue reading The Timetable Debate
Probably the only thing I liked about last night’s GOP debate was the setting. No one could have picked a beautiful and more significant location than the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Setting the four potential nominees in front of Air Force One from the Reagan era and having Nancy Regan in the front row was… Continue reading CNN’s Republican Debate
In our (a group of artists online) neverending way to work our way through Mary Todd Beam’s Celebrate Your Creative Self, we have been working on some white space in paintings. I understand the need for white space but I have trouble keeping it in creations. One method discussed in the books is wax resist.… Continue reading Wax Resist
Okay, I went to the dictionary. The synonyms for the word debate in the noun format are argument, controversy, disputation, contention. I guess I am way off, then, in saying that the recent “no rules” debates held on CNN are not what they should be. I delved further looking to see why I always thought… Continue reading Just what is a debate?
Or, in this case, the difference between democrat and republican. Today, I listened to two different candidates for their party’s presidential nominations withdraw from the races. The differences in the speeches these two men gave were vast. John Edwards spoke of his vision, his life’s purpose, the issues that had been the pinnacle of his… Continue reading The Difference Between Day and Night
Or so I thought when I awoke this morning. Believe it or not, here where the jokes are that we can count the days with sunshine on our fingers and toes the sun is shining brightly. That having been said, weather is a huge part of this wonderful (Does italics donate sarcasm in writing? I… Continue reading Just Another Winter Day
I am not a believer in litagious behaviour. I do think that our country would be in better shape if the answer to every alleged wrong was not a law suit. That having been said, if I were a registered democrat in either Michigan or Florida, I would be clamoring for a lawyer or the… Continue reading How do you feel if you are a democrat in Michigan or Florida?
I did not expect any lame duck president to give a State of the Union address that lasted over an hour. It seems that George W Bush is finally going to lay down the law to the Democratic Congress as the imperative that elected them is diminishing. A few little things that annoyed me to… Continue reading State of the Union
If any endorsement has made me think I should further investigate Barrack Obama, it was the Kennedy endorsement in the NY Times that did it. No, I am not referring to Senator Ted Kennedy. I already told you that I laughed so hard at his endorsement and the irony involved in it, my stomach hurt. … Continue reading The Other Kennedy Endorsement
