how are you all? I have this bad habit of not posting. Sorry about that... This past month has been going well. The cat is doing good. she's got a follow up appointment next week. the vet had said she was a under weight so I've been feeding her kitten food trying to pork her up. not sure if it's worked, but I guess we'll find out.. getting herself locked in the attic for about 2 days sure didn't help my efforts though. (oops)

the family is finally feeling better after a rough few weeks with some nasty bug, that kicked everyone in the house on their asses.. except me.. I didn't get it. after it was all said and done, though, I woke up last friday with an earache. It hurt and I couldn't focus on anything! I went to the doctor's and got eardrops.. it worked apparantly.. my ear is now fine.

Anybody else still not sure who the hell their going to vote for for president. Let me just say that I tend to vote Democrat, but I'm on the progressive side of the spectrum. I listen to left-wing radio shows in the car.. (the Disney Channel has left me unable to watch news at home when the kids are around) I listen to the local AM station that has local news in the morning, and then switches to syndicated radio shows. I like it. It makes me feel informed.

After watching SiCKO my biggest thing I want to hear about in a candidate (besides teh Iraq fiasco) is what their plans are regarding health insurance. I like Kucinich's idea of Medicare for all. His plan is to phase it in over 3 years. The only other plan that I've heard talked about (not to say that others haven't been, I jsut haven't heard it) is Hillary's plan... which I absolutely DON'T support! it's pretty much teh same crap that we have going on here in Massachusetts.. where insurance will be required, and if you can't get it through you're employer you can purchase certain plans from the state from a sliding scale for fees. This is a good idea... IN THEORY!.. and of course Fmr. Gov Romney implemented this plan... let's get him and Hillary to live on say 19K a year.. and busting their ass working to do so at a industrial or manufacturing job.. and let's make them live in an area where the cost of living is fairly high.. where the median income is about 35k-40k.. let's watch them see how they pay their bills, rent, and food, and just for fun let's make them HAVE to pay for the health insurance they can't afford.. even with the sliding scale.. ha.. they would never do that, yet they expect many in our lovely state to do just this, and now Hillary wants the country to have battle this too! that's Crap and it makes me angry. It makes me angier that the media is not talking about this in regards to Romney, and to Hillary..

but at the same time, I think she'll be an okay president if it weren't for this healthcare crap. *sigh*.. atleast by the time elections come around here to MA many will have dropped out of the race and I won't have as many candidates to choose from.

and while I've got yor attention on pres candidates.. why hasn't the media gotten Romney to explain why when he left our great commonwealth, why she swore up and down that he was leaving us in $2 million (or there abouts) in a surplus when it was really in fact, a $2 million DEFICIT (or there abouts) that gave a new Gov a run for his money, and gave him a rough start in office.. (of course there is always the office furnishings and the new car)


  1. I am a nonpartisan. I do not want to commit to a party.

    And as for Hillary and the health insurance thing. I remember when Bill Clinton was campaigning for president. His big pitch was healthcare reform & after he was elected, he appointed Hillary to the congressional committee (the Hillary headband days) and it obviously did not fly. Anyway, I think because of that, she wants to make it work, but who knows. Promises don't mean sh*t unless they materialize...which in politics, rarely happens.

  2. Yeah, intentions n accomplishments never seem to match at the end of the term.

    Personally, I think the Dems may be doomed because No one wants to elect a woman (especially Bill's) or a black man.

    Johnathan Edwards will have to take care of his ill wife n kids as priority, though he gives a good speech, some of his ideas are out there-
    McCain has lost so many times it's pathetic... Maybe he deserves a win now! At least he's competent.

    Then for Repubs we have to toss out Mitt because he's mormon. Alot of folks hate that Guillani is Mr. 911 from NY.

    Is anyone left? Mr Perfect is on holiday!

  3. you guys are right.. I too am sick of empty promises. the intentions are good (I htink) when they say they'd like to do this or that, but sometimes the problem lies with the congress, that congress can't settle on a bill and when they do they attach other things to the bill as well. and often it's something so ludacris (this is not if reference to the past couple bills that got vetoed by dubbya)that the President has to veto a good bill b/c of the stupid crap they added on. Had a sane president been in office I htink the last few things that dubbya vetoed, would've gotten passed for the betterment of htis country
