The Friday Chronicles

I'm [somewhat un-]officially starting The Friday Chronicles. In it, I'll jot down all the things/thoughts/funnies that happened during the week that may or may not have made it into my posts from the past week. Enjoy.

......................................................................................

- Ah, Joe the Plumber. The media wasted no time, did they? They lapped that up like barn cats in the milkhouse. The guy was just outside, playing with his kid, when Obama came sauntering up the street, politicking old-school. Joe seized the moment and asked Obama a question that forced him to tell the truth (oh, where are your campaign advisors when you need them, huh, Barack?): he will raise taxes and he wants to "spread the wealth." Mm-hmm. On to my next point...

- I'm light-headed and considering slamming my head in a drawer.

- *rendering myself unconscious* *twitching*

- Jesus Tapdancing Christ. There's a Socalism activist group alive and well in the United States? And Barack Obama signed a contract with them in 1996 when he first ran for a seat in the Illinois state senate.

- Enough with Obama. We all know I'm a moderate Conservative and that I vehemently oppose Barack Obama. If I'd had to choose between the lesser of the two evils, Hillary would have been easier to accept.

- You'll note that I said I'm a moderate Conservative. Why "moderate?" Because Prop 8 is going to be on my California ballot next month and I'll be connecting the little arrow - I vote by absentee ballot, no standing in lines for hours for me, thanks, and yes, I'm okay with not getting the "I voted!" sticker - that says, "No." It's the one point my husband and I are at odds on. We can't discuss it, really. We both get mad.



- I had a really nice day today. My kids and I went to Hell-Mart Wal-Mart, got the carpt & upholstry cleaner for our Hoover Steamvac, I jammed out to music all the way there and all the way back, and when Rob came home early due to lack of work - shocker, I know - we reminisced our seven years together. Our 6th anniversary is Sunday and we're just in a really good place. Yay!

Have a nice weekend, folks!

My absentee voting ballot came with an "I voted" sticker. I bet you get one too.

I can't discuss politics with almost anyone except my husband. It always ends in someone being angry. I am okay with that though, we all have our own opinions.

Many things to comment on (was there any doubt?)...Joe the Plumber...could he have been anymore of a plant by the McCain people? Besides that, how many plumbers do you know that make that kinda green? Seriously, he is not just some minimum wage worker. Also, in our system, we pay taxes for things the government does, that's a fact, and if Joe the Plumber's go up, I'm sure he will be able to handle. Obama never said "read my lips, no new taxes", he's said that for most people, they won't. I'd bet I'm in that "most people"...think you are?
Also, glad to hear your support of Hillary! :)
Also I totally am feeling your pain on not being able to discuss some things with the guy! Scott and I decide to break up a few times a week during election years! We go around about pretty much every topic! Why oh why do I decide to date a repulican?
