Thanks Wendy...I know you know I know that you know that I know that you know.
I think everyone (or most people anyway) have a "gut feeling" about many things.
I can't tell you how many times I've "felt" something, ignored it, and regretted it heartily later on. :sigh;
Can't agree more. Vote and don't waste the vote on trying to pick the winner. I can't tell you how many times I've heard, "I'd love to vote for so and so, but I know s/he won't win and I don't want to waste my vote."
That makes me WILD!!! EEEEUUUUUUGHGHGHGHGH!
Obama is here today, speaking to the VFW conference. Not a great day for him to be visiting. Hope it goes well for him.
I caught a bit of his speech today on NPR...one thing he said really stood out to me...Originally Posted by Tink, post: 35491
"One of the things that we *have* to change in this country is the idea that people can't disagree without challenging each other's character or their patriotism."
Well said. Huzzah!
Isn't that the TRUTH!!! Why is it when someone holds a different opinion on a topic they become the object of attack instead of the opinion. Very uncivilized and very unprofessional. :(
I can be hugely patriotic but find no redeeming value what so ever in having invaded Iraq. I don't want to hear ONE word about rescuing the Iraqis from a dictator. Let's take a look at Darfur shall we? No intervention there. How about Haiti and the mess WE created there and have walked away and left the country to criminals. How about the many places in Africa where dictators reign and are killing off their people... oh, DO NOT get me started, eh?
So yes, Obama does make all the sense in the world with that statement.
