Time to put my political views aside before I drive away every conservative friend I have. By the way, I'm not the unabashed liberal my postings might make you think I am. I'm actually all for fiscal conservatism, which is why I never let a balance roll over on any of my credit cards.
Anyway, on to the important issues of the day.
MSU versus Ohio State.
In case you didn't know, Ohio State isn't having too good of a year (by their standards), and my team has been just tantalizing enough to keep me tuning in waiting for them to turn the corner.
Let's see how Damon Dowdell can do today, it's his last chance for redemption and it would make for a great story to end the season.
MSU needs 3 wins in these last 4 games to go bowling...today would be a hecuva step in the right direction for that.
Just wanted to let everyone know that I met the dog in the picture posted below. She's sweet as a dog can be....full of energy and happiness.
So now I have one day to decide if I can be the perfect home for her. I think I can handle it...I'll let you all know what I decide.
By the way...her name is Mia...and the good people at midwest lab rescue have done a great job for her.
For all the bitching people do about these movies...the themes make a lot of sense, they show what can happen in a society when people give up their rights to a charismatic leader who promises to keep them safe and to never betray their trust. Hmmm.....
My post-election thoughts.
1 - I should've known this was gonna be tough when John Kerry called Lambeau field "Lambert", and addressed a red state crowd saying "Who amongst us does not love NASCAR?"
2 - It's apparent to me that the democrats better find a way to retake some of the perceived moral center of the country. They won't win any national elections for some time without paying attentiont to the south. Kerry tried and it left him with no political options besides taking Ohio and hoping for the best, which didn't happen.
3 - Yes, 51 million people supported the president, and all of those people cannot be obsessed "right-wing nut jobs". Most of them live next door to everyone.
4 - Mitch Albom wrote a good column this morning: http://www.freep.com/sports/albom/albom3e_20041103.htm
5 - I like this pledge:
- Support the President, even if I didn't vote for him.
- Criticize the President, even if I did vote for him.
- Uphold standards of civilized discourse in blogs and in media while pushing both to be better.
- Unite as a nation, putting country over party, even as we work together to make America better.
So where are we now? Republicans hold power in all the legislative and executive branches, the supreme court is going to see at least 3 retirements in the near future....so it would appear the people have spoken, and overall, the country is not ready to move too far from the values and traditions that "brung us to the dance". Good enough.....
Just think, only 2 years until we start this crazy tango all over again.
