While I am still trying desparately to wrap my mind around the political outlook in this country, I am extremely concerned about Yemen. Yes, I said Yemen. If we go back to the end of the last two term president, it was the fall of 2000. October 12th, the USS Cole was bombed in Yemeni… Continue reading Yemen: Ignored or Deja vu?
Okay, so everyone was up in arms over The New Yorker’s cover that was a caricature of Barack Obama and his wife Michelle. What will people think about Vanity Fair’s caricature of John McCain and his wife Cindy, which is a spoof? Vanity Fair Cover Now, the first thing I notice is the hand full… Continue reading Vanity Fair Hits GOP Candidate with Spoof
Ah, a headline like that is definitely what McCain’s campaign doesn’t need. What else can be said, though, after McCain’s own admission that he doesn’t know how to get online yet? I admit I telecommute so spend more time on a computer than a lot of people. I have had a web site since the… Continue reading John McCain and the 21st Century
While it seems that the cover of the July 21 edition of The New Yorker is causing quite a stir, I think that it will unfortunately overshadow the article about Barack Obama’s political beginnings. While reading the online fifteen pages, I am drawn to the fact that Obama has played in the dirt of Chicago politics. I… Continue reading The New Yorker Cover
I realize the democratic party is worried about getting itself unified if a frontrunner is not clearly defined soon. But should one of those running for the party’s nomination say that those who vote after March 4, 2008 don’t matter. “Now we’ve got to campaign hard in Texas and Ohio. But after March 4th, I… Continue reading Is this a smart thing to say?
Just a few more thoughts that seem to keep coming into the forefront in my head about last Thursday night’s democratic debate. I have often wondered about actual debate etiquette, for lack of a better term. When the two candidates came out, they both seemed to shake hands with Wolf Blitzer without any hesitation. When… Continue reading The Democrats … Again
First, let me say I am sitting here typing prior to 7am as February is coming in like the lion March is suppose to be. My kids have snow day although there may be little snow happening. I can hear the sleet and freezing rain on the windows now which means I will most likely,… Continue reading CNN’s Democratic 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?
