Sarah Palin for VP???–Yes!!!! McCain/Palin Ticket for America!!

Well if you listen to Fox and believe the hype then it looks as though Sarah Palin will be McCain’s pick for a running mate. How do I feel about this you might ask? Well I like it. It shows the McCain is smart enough to know that the American voter does want change, but not the kool-aid change that Hussein is dishing out.

Now for those who don’t know who Palin is then you can get to her Wikipedia page here. For the most part she is the current gov. of Alaska,  who ran on the platform of getting rid of the corruption that has plagued the Alaskan govt for years.

I feel this could be the pick that not only seals the deal for McCain, but I think this will bring the women that are still pissed bc Clinton was screwed over!!

Now don’t get me wrong I love the idea of Liberman on the ticket or Romney, but I feel this is the best pick for McCain, and having Palin on the ticket should lead to a win in Nov! Now a lot of folks from the left will say she lacks the experience to be President if something were to McCain, well that’s an easy fix. Obama doesn’t have the experience to be President and he is on top of the Dem ticket!!!! So that dog won’t hunt!!!

Updates will follow as the information is put out!

Update #1:

According to Hot Air Palin will be the pick, click here for the info.

Update #2:

According to Fox Palin has been confirmed as McCain’s VP as is CNN!!!

Update #3:

Well it is offical McCain-Palin!!!

Here is a video you canwatch that should inspire you:

The DNC- fun fun in crazy land!!

OK so were do I begin? Well first would be sorry to any readers that I may have for not posting in a while. It has been a long month. So let me get to it!

Over the last week or so there has been a lot of commotion come out during the campaigns for President. Both sides have been trying to talk the other side down and state why they are better to lead the country.  For a while it seems as though Barrack Hussein Obama had some momentum  within the polls and going into his convention that he would just tear the polls up. But then all of a sudden, he picks Biden for his VP and not Clinton! Now I am not a genius, but that was the dumbest move ever!! So since he picked Biden his lead in the polls have all but disappeared, in fact one poll had McCain leading. Now we can’t blame the non-Biden bounce on this, there are plenty of other things that can be blamed, so lets go thru some of them.

1. How many houses does McCain own?- Well my honest answer to this: who gives a shit? I mean really! The man is married to a woman whose family has lived the American dream. The fact that her family has been able to make a lot of money and can afford more then one house has nothing to do with weather or not McCain should be President. The fact the Mrs. McCain’s family can afford more then one house and they can afford a lot more then I can only means one thing, they have money! But it does bring up a good point that the McCain folks have brought up: how many houses does Hussein have that he got without the help of a convicted felon?? My guess would be 0!!! How can a man who has taken help from a slum lord to buy his Mansion have the balls to come out and say that McCain has to many homes while others in this nation are losing there homes! Well I have no sympathy for someone losing their home, why you ask, well I have a home in Memphis that has sat empty for 8 months because I could not sell it nor could I get someone to rent it, yet my wife and I made the payments on time every month, while renting a home here in NW Arkansas!!! The fact is there were mortgage companies that were giving out loans to people that should not have qualified for them in the first place! Not only that you have developers building neighborhoods like hot cakes! I currently, but not for long, work in the civil engineering business, have for the last 10 years, and I can not tell you the number of subdivisions that I have worked on in the last 4 years since I got home from Iraq!! So here you have to many homes being built, to many loans given to folks that shouldn’t have them, and no one could for see a problem coming? All it would take is the economy to turn and all would be lost, and what’s the one thing in the American economy that if its price changes it affects everything??? OIL!!! So when some asshat on Wall Street decides to see if he could get the cost of a barrel to go over $100 and succeeds then well the rest is history! It’s a domino effect!! When oil prices sky rocket then the cost of everything else goes up because it costs more to make it and to ship it! Its not rocket science!!!! So the whole McCain doesn’t know how many house he has, has no footing for this election! Oh by the way how many home does Kerry own??

2. Hussein and his buddy Ayers: Ok this has been out there for a while, but yet no one has mentioned it till lately, and I am glad they have. The fact that AIP had made an ad asking why is it ok for Hussein to be friends with a known terrorist and in fact use him as an adviser for his campaign makes me smile! Here is a guy that on Sept 11th had the balls to say that his organization “didn’t do enough” when asked about his BOMBING the Capital building!!! Again I am not a genius, but why would someone that wants to be President of the United States of America, after the worse terrorist attack this country has ever had against it, during the middle of 2 wars, have the AUDACITY to have a terrorist as one of his advisers and expect people to be ok with it?? So we have this ad come out about there connection, and what does the Hussein camp do? They make there own ad, but in this ad they say that Hussein was 8 when Ayers bombed the Capital building! Did anyone ask him how old he was when that happened? Did anyone ask why did he help Ayers do the bombings? NO!! They asked how can he have the audacity to associate with a known terrorist and think the American people wouldn’t mind it!!!! No one gives a shit how old you were when he did his attacks against this country!! Can someone please give this a guy a clue on what’s going on?!?!?!? Oh and now the Hussein camp is petitioned the Department of Justice to have the ad removed from the air and have the AIP investigated because of possible election fraud! Can you say CENSORSHIP??

3. Surge in Iraq: So it is obvious that the surge has worked in Iraq, in fact it is so obvious that Hussein himself was able to go to Iraq and see for himself that it has worked! But does Hussein come out and say it has worked?? Nope! Not once! Well I guess he has his head in the sand, but do really think he is going to come out and say it? My guess would be No!

4. Clinton not the VP: Alright this is a big thing with some of the left wing nut cases, me personally, I am glad he didn’t pick her.My fear was he picked her and there would be nothing to stop them to a win in Nov. She would  had brought all of the women that are pissed off at the Democrat Party and have decided to vote for McCain in 08 that there would be no stopping them. So in his very first major decision, that can be looked upon as a Presidential decision, he f’ed it up and picked Biden. A man that not only was busted for plagiarism when he ran for President in 1988, but a guy that has thrown out a ton of racists comments, the latest about Indians owning all of the 7-11’s in Delaware. Not only that Hussein’s campaign has been all about “change” in Washington DC, yet he picks a guy that has been in the Senate since 1972, he was elected at the age of 29, so his entire adult life he has been in the Senate. So please explain to me how that is “change”!!!!

That’s all for this post right now, I will have more later!

Update: Here is a video about Hussien and Ayers:

Update # 3..I think

Well it has been a while since my last post, and for those that actually read this blog I am sorry. It has been a busy month for me, and I am here to explain what has been going on.

On July 13th I left for Memphis, I had to be in Memphis to get ready to go to my Annual Training for the Army Reserves. This year my unit went out to California to do some actual engineer training, this being the first time in my 11 year Army carrear. So I spent a total of 21 days out there doing Army stuff,  we ended up having 2, 24 hour periods were 16 Sapper (engineer) squads competed in 16 Sapper Stakes (lanes)..baiscly there were 16, 8 man teams that had to go thru 16 training lanes, each one dealing from common army tasks to complex engineering tasks. And to make it even more fun, the higher ups decide to make a competition out of it. The only bad thing is the unit that was putting this thing on also had 4 teams involved so can you guess who one? Hint: it was one of th units that put this all togerther, in fact all 4 teams were in the top six, they would have been 1-4, but the 1st squad from my unit finsished 3rd so thatdidn’t happen, the team I lead, 3rd Squad finished 8th, even thought on the last day my squad, 1st squad and the winner were each battling for first for 20 plus hours, and some how I finished 8th?? Seems fishy to me! Anyways, so while doing this we had some good fun, and got to see some of the infamous California fires while out there.

Well to make this trip even more fun, prior to leaving for California, the wife, my daughter and I went to San Antinio, TX and met up with my mom, sister and brother-in-law to surprise my daughter for her birthday.  We went to Sea World and Six Flags over the July 4th weekend (daughter’s bday is July 5th), so we had a good time doing that. well that was short lived, when we got home, we got a notice from the bankruptcy court in California, that the owner’s of the house we were renting had filed for banruptcy and the house was included in it, so we were under the threat of being evicted once the back got the house. So this lead to a time crunch to find a new house to rent and prepare to move once I got home from California. Luckly we found one really quick so that was taken care of before I left, the bad thing was we were moving 2 days after I got home from 3 weeks in Califonia, so that really sucked!!

Luckily my wife being the genius that she is, hired some movers to help with all the big and heavy items, so that saved my back and knees! So the move went off with out a hitch, thank goodness.

Well while in California, I received a call from the Siloam Springs, AR Poilce Department, they decided to move my hire date up to the 1st of Sept instead of the 1st of Oct. So that brightened my trip big time!! For those that might not know, I took a test anf interviewed with them back in June, then they did my background check short there after. I then recieved a letter offering me a job at a later date, so I knew I had the job, but I didn’t have a stat date untill I got the call.  So needless to say I am happy that I am leaving the crappy job that I have now, which I only have sue to being laid off from the job that I loved back in April (damn economy!!), and now I am going to a profession that I have been wanting to be part of for the last 8 years, and I am finally going to fullfill a dream!!!

So that ends the update. I am hoping to get some more posts on the elections and events going on around the world soon, so keep an eye out for them!!
