Politics or crap ?
Ok so the mud slinging has begun, in case there wasn’t enough already.
I will actually be out of the country on election day so if I don’t submit my ballot early I realize I have absolutely no say in the future of the nation’s presidency and electoral candidates.
I admit I need to read more and be more involved in some of the nation’s happenings. Most are too depressing to read, I can not solve the issues alone and I have my own things to worry about, just like everyone else.
But my latest feeling is that if I had a say in the campaign this year – I would say we START OVER !
Let’s scratch the present day options and go back to the drawing board completely.
The latest news, (the VP nom’s were released a few days ago), they are now finding the mud on the VP nominees, and today’s announcement concerns Sarah Palin’s teenage -unwed – daughter is preggers. Serioulsy. I think she is 17.
How sad, what we have come to be.
I will actually quote Lindsay Lohan here, She said, quote, “I think the real problem comes from the fact that we are taking the focus off of getting to know Sarah Palin and her political views, and what she can do to make our country a less destructive place.
“It’s distracting from the real issues, the real everyday problems that this country experiences.”
My other question is – if Sarh Palin were a man, a father, would it be a big deal if his daughter were pregnant at 17 ? or is it worse that a mother “let” her daugher get pregnant ?
I am not trying to get in to the mess and tell you who to vote for or even who I might vote for. Each party has their own issues, some of which are clearly obvious and don’t have to be discussed.
I just wonder what the future holds, or do we trust that the checks and balances will hold this country strong ? were the decisions set in place by our fore fathers great enough to help us through tims like this ?
We shall see.
and for a side bar – while not a good segue – it is an interesting story of how we as American’s see things and the “This will never happen to me syndrome” ……
MICHAEL JORDAN is in trouble with the American Cancer Society for playing in a celebrity softball game in Atlanta on Monday.
Their problem is that he had a cigar in his mouth THE ENTIRE GAME.
The former president of the ACS says, quote, “When high profile athletes publicly display unhealthful habits they can mislead young people to emulate their behavior.
“According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco use in this country is responsible for one-third of all cancers and remains the most preventable cause of death in our society.
“8.6 million Americans suffer from chronic smoking-related disease. Since 1964 smoking has cause more than 12 million premature deaths in the U.S.”
