Why “Regular Joe” Should Be Mad…

Posted in Current Events, Life, news, opinion, Politics, Reflection, sarah palin, Straight Debate with tags , , , , , , on October 2, 2008 by missify

No…a regular “Joe” six-pack (poor Joe) does NOT have to name a Supreme Court decision.  “Pookie and Ray-Ray” do not have to understand the bailout plan and WHO actually benefits (and is adversely affected) by the proposals in Congress. 

But one who is a 72-year old heartbeat away from running this country….BETTER KNOW!

I have taken a break from Palin (refusing to watch most things that cover her if I can help it) because I am trying to stay focused on the two ACTUAL candidates for presidency.  But as America waits for tonight at what is probably the most anticipated VP-debate in television history, I just want everyone to look in the mirror for a moment.  My prayer is that though our hues, facial characteristics, and other features may be different, our CRANIUMS possess the same mass.  How we use  our brain varies drastically.  Some look at the fact that Palin cannot name a single Supreme Court case as a further representation of “normal” America…and as she keeps mentioning “Joes with six packs” all I keep thinking is one thing…POOR JOE.

Film Critic, Roger Ebert, goes off on John McCain

Film critic can’t understand why GOP nominee couldn’t look Obama in the eye during debate.

Sept 30, 2008

Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert did not appreciate the nonverbal behavior of Sen. John McCain during Friday’s first presidential debate with Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama.

       The longtime movie reviewer took personal offense at McCain’s body language, particularly the GOP senator’s failure to even look at Obama.     

      The following is Ebert’s blog in its entirety:

Guess who’s not coming to dinner – by Roger Ebert

I do not like you, John McCain. My feeling has nothing to do with issues. It has to do with common courtesy. During the debate, you refused to look Barack Obama in the eye. Indeed, you refused to look at him at all. Even when the two of you shook hands at the start, you used your eyes only to locate his hand, and then gazed past him as you shook it.

Obama is my guy. If you are rude to him, you are rude to me. If you came to dinner at my house and refused to look at or speak with one of my guests, that would be bad manners and I would be offended. Same thing if I went to your house. During the debate, you were America’s guest.

What was your problem? Do you hold this man in such contempt that you cannot bear to gaze upon him? Will you not even speak to him directly?

Do you think he doesn’t have the right to be running for President? Continue reading

Ok… I’m back from my (badly needed) hiatus.  In the last week and a half, I started working and got sick (exciting stuff people) with a cold.  But that didn’t stop me from watching the market crash, the presidential debate, and all the talk on “gotcha” politics (I’m telling you…all the good stuff occured during my ailment).  But…I’m healthy now…so let’s continue shall we…

Law #18–Do Not Build Fortresses to Protect Yourself–Isolation Is Dangerous

Posted in Life, opinion with tags , , , on September 23, 2008 by missify

The world is dangerous and enemies are everywhere–everyone has to protect themselves.  A fortress seems the safest.  But isolation exposes you to dangers than it protects you from–it cuts you off from valuable information, it makes you conspicuous and an easy target.  Better to circulate among people, find allies, mingle.  You are shielded from your enemies by the crowd.

Excerpt from The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene.
