that nothing but rehash happens on the news over the weekend but then on Monday we have to recap all that went on over the weekend that we didn't know about? I'm confused.
Now I would like to breifly address the rehash that I was going to address last evening.
Oh, if you are just here for my POW it is the next post down.
I think it is hilarious that it is called mud when it is thrown, but truth or an "issue" when it is thrown the other way. And it is expected that people are going to believe there is a difference! And they do!
Look, why is it that you can basically call someone a fool and out of touch for their econmic plan but someone can't call you foolish and out of touch for who you have picked to help you launch your polital career?
Look, why does the media or my fellow citizen with a microphone in his face get to tell me what my issue is? My issue is who is a puppet and for whom?
I have looked into it and I have come to the conclusion that Obama doesn't mind using people because he allows people to use him. And I will continue to call for people to look into it. Look into who has propped him up. Ask why he thinks it is okay to launch his political career in a certain man's living room. I, personally, think it is very important as to who is backing you. It is what the whole out in the open party system is all about.
But even with what we are being told are real issues, candidate's approach to economics or defense plans, people approach it in several different ways. One is being willing only to listen and not self investigate, another is to engage in and think out the implications, this of course requires that "issues" be talked about by both sides. From there springs different political decision making approaches: the "conversation" can be taken by the citizens as a prompting to do our own research; or we can listen and make our decision on what we hear in ads or speeches; or we can plug our ears and say that it is all just to hard to figure out and both sides lie about things anyway and so toss a coin or vote for who ever is sexiest (ala Barbra Walters and the View).
We all get to decide for ourselves what type of citizen we are going to be. And because of free speech, I and others can try to influence you not only for the side we pick but for the way we pick them.
As far as the heat in the kitchen....
Oh, and you can dish anything you want to about my pick and why, just be ready for my comeback or my silence, because maybe I think your words will hang themselves.
On civility? Come on folks, it is a fight. It's a contest for the biggest job in America, and you want it to be all kissy kissy? If some guy can't slug it out with a fellow American then how can I expect him to slug it out with countries that would love to see our demise?
But remember after all is said and done and even during the slugfest, America is what it is we are fighting for. It may not be the most important thing in my life (it isn't even in the top 5) but it is what "this" is all about. And heck it only last for a couple of months out of forty-eight.
Yes, I am a fighter and I am a Christian, and so far I don't see that they are mutually exclusive. But even on that, you are welcome to express yourself, feel free to call me a crappy Christian because I am involved in the political discussion and I'm scrappy. But for me, that will be a yap for another day, I have plants to winterize today and a lute-fest to prepare for.
