  • I Fully Support President Obama

    I voted for John McCain, so did Lois (or so she told me). Each of us admitted to the other, that even though we knew in advance that we were voting for McCain, we hesitated in the voting booth, and wanted to vote for Obama. Not because we believed the rhetoric, and certainly […]

  • Selling the Presidency

    Yesterday, The NY Times had an article discussing the size of the ad budgets of both campaigns. Regardless of the statistics provided in that article, it crystalized for me something I had been feeling for a long while, but couldn’t articulate, even to myself.

You can read the story from a professional news organization, on the off chance that you do live under a rock. Nowadays, making a gaffe like that requires some […]

  • Presidential Candidates Three

    Disclaimer: There are no facts in this post. Everything below is my opinion only. I have made no attempt to find any supporting facts either, life is too short! Whew, now that that’s out of the way, let me also say that everything I’m about say is also correct. 😉 I’m rushing this […]
