Yes, indeed, I have been having an actual life. Impossible as it might seem to me, I turned 70 a month or more ago, among other things. Also, my dear Linda has been continuing to suffer horrendous physical challenges and is, in fact, facing another surgery today at 11:30 a.m. Please pray for her. This insanity has been going on since March and she is thin and fragile and thoroughly frustrated and I don't blame her. In the meantime, I've been observing the insanity called the political process and I have a few thoughts on the subject. First of all, Mitt Romney is not now nor has he ever been my first choice of candidate. That being said, what choice do we have? Another four years of that cretinous yahoo in the White House will go a long way toward destroying this country. And if that doesn't happen, his vice president will surely continue down the path of embarrassing this entire nation with his endless gaffes. Dan Quayle didn't make nearly as many verbal goofs and he was soundly ridiculed by every liberal in the nation. By comparison to Biden, he was a model of verbal genius! As a senior citizen, I seriously resent the continuing talk of Social Security and Medicare as an "entitlement". Have any of you looked at your pay stub lately (if indeed you are among the fortunate ones who still get such a thing)? Medicare money is deducted from each of our checks on a regular basis and both you and your employer are paying into Social Security regularly. So the Congress and the president need to stop acting like the monies reserved for the welfare and health care of seniors is a lottery they have just won and can fritter away at will! That's OUR MONEY and should be left alone - entirely - and carefully tended. The last thing any of you want is a bunch of ticked off seniors going to the ballot box. We have the TIME to vote and the will to do so. The advertising is the most disgusting from the Dems but I am really enjoying some of the hard hitting and on point ads being run by the RNC. I may feel disposed to send them a sheckel or two as a sign of gratitude for being ballsy enough not to try to curry favor with the liberal dimwits!
