  • I think everyone should educate themselves on what's going on in the political world and be VERY careful who you listen to. I know WAY too many people that hear a celebrity spout their opinion and JUST because they like their movies, they agree with them. Find out what the candidate and even the parties themselves stand for. I was asked at the last election if I was voting for Obama. I said, "No." I was automatically looked at like I was being prejudiced. "Don't you want our first black president??!!!" they asked. I had to explain that I didn't think Obama was black, he was black AND white and was raised by white people. Also, I don't believe in abortion or the Democrat's party platform. It has nothing to do with race or color. I sure would like the opportunity to vote for Condoleeza Rice!!!!! If we don't educate ourselves, we shouldn't vote. It's way too important.

  • Eh, sometimes, but not always. It has been a little more than usual since November 2008. :)

  • Shhh, careful or next there will be a Depression Czar... Nope, I find politics, infuriating! I am astounded at the waste of money this administration has allowed and continues to allow... Just to name a few: Our tax $$$ spent on monkeys getting cocaine, drunk gay people's choices for sex partners, teaching African American men to cleanse their uncircumcised penises in order to stop the spread of Aids, Nancy's marsh rodents, the carp and their Czar... Completely ludicrous!  I'm just a little confused on the penis cleansing; if the HIV carrier enters his partner clean and ejaculates, because his foreskin was clean, he can't spread Aids? WOW and here I thought it was in the body fluids, now this is really good ta know, eh?

  • Nope. It's exciting. It's like football season.

  • In a way. It depresses me that people would rather point fingers, mud sling, or bicker/argue than actually work together to do what needs to be done for this country....
