If I do notstop myself from watching live TV I will lose my mind the next time one of those anti-Onama commercials come on. Do they think I'm stupid? Damn.

Do people really believe gas prices are Obama's fault? Really?

If one more person calls here trying to sell me a low interest credit card I think I'll lose my mind. First of all, they are not supposed to be calling and then they have the nerve to ask if I have credit card debt! What nerve! I've turned into a telephone bitch. The pleasant patient person no longer exists.

Cannot believe what the republicans are trying to sell........nor can I believe that so many Americans are buying it.

check this out.....

TRUTH what other countries think about Republicans                                                      


The Republican presidential contest in America is a “freak show,” said Marc Pitzke in the German Der Spiegel. The candidates vie with one another to spew the most outrageous hard-right positions, denying evolution while endorsing torture and joking about electrocuting illegal immigrants. How did a major party in the world’s sole superpower become a “club of liars, debtors, betrayers, adulterers, exaggerators, hypocrites, and ignoramuses?” These know-nothings are enabled by a U.S. press that has been “neutered by the demands of political correctness” so that it can’t say what’s obvious: These people are daft! Instead, it “proclaims one clown after the next to be the new front-runner.” The current favorite, Newt Gingrich, is actually considered an intellectual merely because he can create sentences with multiple clauses. Scarcely a one has even the most basic grasp of foreign policy. One said Africa is a country, another that the Taliban rule in Libya . Collectively, “they expose a political, economic, geographic, and historical ignorance that makes George W. Bush look like a scholar.”


That’s the scariest part, said Lorraine Millot in the ParisLiberation. The only GOP candidate who knows a thing about diplomacy, Jon Huntsman, is dead last in most polls. The others “careen to extreme positions that include starting new wars and abandoning old allies.” And that’s when they even have a position. Herman Cain, now thankfully out of the race, was the front-runner even though he couldn’t find a single coherent word to say about President Obama’s policy on Libya . He even boasted of knowing little about foreign countries. And yet it was his adultery, not his astounding ignorance that brought him down.


There’s a simple explanation for this bizarre phenomenon, said Max Hastings in the London Daily Mail. In the “lunatic, gun-toting badlands of America ’s Hicks-ville, Tea Party country,” it’s considered suspiciously elitist to show any interest in modern science or the world beyond America ’s borders. “Say what you like about British politics, no MP of any party would dare to offer themselves as town dog-catcher while knowing as little about the world as the Republican presidential candidates.” We take public service seriously. Yet we in Britain , and everyone in the rest of the world, will suffer if “one of the lunatics” vying for the nomination makes it to the White House. “The American political system has seldom, if ever, looked soinadequate.”

Don’t worry, said Matthew Norman in the London Independent. The fact that Gingrich is the latest threat to Mitt Romney’s inevitability just “confirms how inevitable” Romney’s nomination is. The thrice-married, ethically challenged Gingrich is unlikable in the extreme. Which means the nominee will be Romney, “the slimiest, phoniest opportunist to run for president since...well, ever.” So sit back and enjoy this circus passing for a presidential election. It can’t possibly end in a GOP victory. Can it?

Don't know if  I can take this election crap until november. Thinking about not watching any news at all. Ignorance is bliss?

Some man calls the house repeatedly, at least every 2-3 days.He's one of these people trying to get you to sign up to lower your credit card interest rate. The SAME man has spoken to me and to Tom....he has been screamed at, hung up on, cussed out...nicely and not so nicely. I've repeatedly asked him to take our number  off of the call list and he says he cannot then hangs up when you ask for the manager. WTF!! On a mission to find out how to block his and other annoying calls. With the election coming up I dread answering the phone.

Do I really care about the Iowa caucus? Hell no...sure will be glad when all this BS is over. November can't come fast enough. Hopefully will be celebrating at my house on inauguration day a little over a year from now like we did 4 years ago. Whoo Hoo!

Lost 2 family members last week. Maybe that's why I hesitate to get excited about the holidays....if it were not for the grands and great-grands....Will do my best not to check out during the holidays.

Sometimes holidays suck.  I miss my Mama sooooo much!....can I get just one more day?

Can I just say that, after recent personal experience, I prefer to go through labor and delivery than to pass a kidney stone. Another one of life's mysteries......something so small can cause such pain....you can't walk it away, you can't sit, you can't stand, you can't lie down....all the while you are puking your guts out. Then when the stone finally passes and you are fortunate enough to catch it, the thing is so tiny you can hardly see it AND YOU HATE IT AND WISH YOU COULD CHOKE THE CRAP OUT OF IT. At least with labor and delivery, the end result is not the bowling ball that it feels like coming out of your coochie but a baby that you can touch, see, feel, kiss love forever.

I tire of living with MS sometimes. It is hard to stay positive, but I do thank you all for your love and support. Tripping around, being extra, extra cautious when I'm out so I don't fall and embarass or hurt myself...that just sucks. I must say,though, that people are so nice and are always ready to help. Honestly, sometimes my nerves are plucked with the "stranger kindness" but I get over it quickly.   I got this, hahaha. Just say'n. Should you catch a news story about someone being beaten with a cane by a crazed black woman because of a simple act of kindness call Tom, he might need help with my bail.

Herman Cain, Republicans. Do you think we're STUPID?
