Some Political Thoughts ...

Services for Real Estate Pros with Auto & Home & Life Insurance throughout North Carolina

If you think today is any different than other facets of our country's history, you may want to read up on that history.  While it's certainly more pronounced, more displayed and out there ... we probably aren't any more special than our predecessors.  I probably won't see the end of the world in my lifetime.

On to Politics ...

  • If one more moron starts talking to me about Michele Bachmann's migraines, I just might puke.  First off, that probably flirts with something that is against the Americans With Disabilities Act.  And even if it doesn't, who cares?  May I remind you that JFK was in pretty bad shape and on more pain medication (for his back) than your run-of-the-mill Rock God.  And look at Reagan, there are staunch possibilities that Alzheimer's was affecting him during his Presidency.   Listen, I wouldn't vote for Bachmann on a dare, but that particular argument against her just sucks. 
  • It would not make one iota of a difference in the defecit, but I'd love to hear one Representative tell me they will be taking a pay-cut.  In the fiscal matter of things, the reality of it wouldn't matter at all.  But there would be a hell of a perception change for that particular Representative.
  • Until FOX NEWS & MSNBC go the path that the WWE created to circument the athletic commissions back in the day and admit they are merely entertainment ... I'll continue watching both worlds.   I grew out of Jerry Springer too.
  • I'm Socially Liberal, Fiscally Conservative.  Apparently, there are many in that same boat.  I think they need a powerful voice to combat the far left and far right extremes whose voices tend to be the loudest.  For this cause, I nominate Leonard Cohen.  Not sure he agrees with the philosophy, but he has one hell of a voice.
  • Anyone recall that Civic Duty thing?  Not an occupation ...  ?
  • If Gay Marriage offends you and you haven't fucked your wife in the past three months, Shut Up, you queer!

Sardi - obviously, you are not a solopsist. But, as card carrying one, I firmly believe, that when I clock out, the world ends. As for Leonard, haven't you used that one before? I do prefer this, or this one.

great blog...brutal honesty and I agree...socially liberal and fiscally conservative here too.  Tired of hearing about the migraines too even though she is unelectable (outlawing porn is unAmerican) LOL

Excellent points! Cohen would make an excellent voice for our new party. I, for one, am ready for something a little more poetic in our stream of political blather.

Jason, You're one of the few that can post something on politics that I'll read.  Most others have their vehement stance one side or other without any hope of reconciliation betweenst the two sides.

The representatives taking a pay cut Jason? Is Hell freezing over? I think many events nowadays just seem to be amplified with the ALWAYS ON 24 hour media.

Gary - It was just a thought.  And for folks (and that particular trade is sales too), the PR may just be amazing.  Especially in this atmosphere.

Bill - I agree and that's a damn shame. 

MJ - Me too.  While perfection is always in the sights, I only ask a bit of evolvement from all concerned.  And each one of us, whether we care to realize it or not, are somehow concerned.

Paddy - Didn't know that tidbit about her, but I'm not surprised.  Debate, don't hate!  That's my slogan.  Then again, a selective few make hating extremes a worthwhile cause.

Jason, enjoy your blogs, but as they say, you can't fix stupid and that is Washington.

The smart money always bets against the end of the world - never bet against a streak. Plus if you're wrong who collects?

Home Realty Group - As with any entity that is piped into the vast medium that is our armchair scopes, anyone can seem stupid under the right light.  If they are stupid, then it says a whole lot about us who elected them ... across the board and political lines.  I don't think they are necessarily stupid; I just think that nobody has come up with (nor articulated) a proper solution to mop the stained floors with.  Spending, like living, starts at home.

Ron - I have a colorful shot at the "Right" for my answer, but I'll keep that one to myself for now.  Instead, I'll take a shot at the left ... Bob Marley :) ?

You said,

And look at Reagan, there are staunch possibilities that Alzheimer's was affecting him during his Presidency.

Really? I don't recall!

Love your thoughts.
