Today I will be a bit all over the place. Everyone needs to touch base on a variety of subjects now and then, and today it is my turn. Three weeks ago, John McCain said that our economy was fundamentally strong. After Obama said, “What?” McCain said he meant the American worker is fundamentally strong. He acted as though anybody should know “fundamentally” meant the American worker. Say what? An adverb is a noun? Last night McCain stated “he had a plan to fix the economy.” Really? And he is saving the idea, why?
I do really try to keep politics out of my blog. You know that I do humor and it is broad based. But at times I need to vent. Today is one of those days. I’ve made no secret that I support Barrack Obama. But my support is not because he is a Democrat. I don’t belong to a party. I voted for Ronald Reagan, twice. I voted for Bill Clinton, twice. I look for the message. The policies. The intellect. The vision. And John, can you lose the expression “my friends”? I do not know in which of your seven estates that you thought that shit up, but this practice is not a brilliant idea. Because it really sucks. I do not know you. I am not your “friend”.
I have not spoken to anyone in a long time that had anything but contempt for Bush. How a candidate that supported almost every bone-headed Bush moment is only behind by single digits in the most recent polls is mind numbing. Now I am not naïve. I understand that are an awfully large amount of white voters who have (some degree of) racism out there. They won’t admit it, but the color of Obama’s skin scares them. Sarah Palin tried to make it sound last week as though Barrack Obama supported the radical Black Panthers. He was five when the Black Panthers were around. But Sarah “I broke the world records for winks during a debate” Palin just wants to scare us. It is high time for a woman vice-president or president. But a former mayor of a town of 71 and a Governor of a state where she can see Russia? Ladies, you deserve better. MUCH better. When she just takes her hockey mom crap and “dog gone it” back to Alaska it will not be soon enough.
Have you noticed that we are now on the hook for this bailout and it might not solve a fucking thing? Gee, I was hoping that the government would grab nearly $2500 from each of us and we still could watch the economy collapse. Maybe it is just I, but this is a rather fucked up time to be living in.
And we won’t leave Iraq until we have “Peace with honor”. Where have I heard that before? Right. Vietnam and Richard Nixon. If leaving in the middle of the night before the enemy overruns you is peace with honor, I hope we don’t get that in Iraq. There can be no victory for us in Iraq. Meanwhile you tell me that the surge worked? To my way of thinking, the only way the surge could have worked was if it ended this fucked up misguided, Bush lie-ridden war. Please get those honorable American soldiers out of harms way. Today.
Since I am changing subjects, let me turn to a blogging issue. Entrecard does not help your blog’s traffic. “What?” you say, “I see the numbers and I get referrals.” Yes you do. What you are seeing is other Entrecard members checking out your blog to see if they should advertise on it. This is perhaps the fifth scam of this type that I have either seen or participated in. Do not misunderstand me, it suckered me in as well. This one may be the worst. You better not play music automatically on your blog. They toss those people. Of course, you’d have to be reported. Piss someone off. Anybody. Say goodbye to your Entrecard. I say fuck Entrecard and their rules. You are just giving away your soul, your time and advertising space. Have you seen an Entrecard ad and said, “I gotta read that fucking blog!” I didn’t think so. But don’t take my word for it, research it yourself on the net.
Okay, I’m done with serious shit. We have two final items. First, I do want to thank Jodi at Moody Blue for the Kreativ Blogger Award. I sincerely appreciate it. Jodi is truly one of the nicest friends you could have in the blogosphere. I appreciate her wit and sincerity a great deal. And a great thing about Jodi is that she understands people. Other winners she asked to pass it on. With me, she acknowledged that I do not like to “tag” and told me not to worry about. Thanks again Jodi, you are a good friend. And notice it is now placed in my sidebar.
Finally, my son James’ band So Long Davey! just released a new music video. It is featured on YouTube. Please give it a watch and let me know what you think. (Even if you HATE it. I’d just like feedback.) Thank you Mimi Lenox for the assist in posting the video. If you’d like to purchase their latest EP, the info is in my sidebar. The song is titled, You Got Me, which explain today’s post title. Thanks!
