I woke up today to find our boat has moved from the dock where we were loading the barge (with a good internet signal ), to an anchorage out in the Gulf of Mexico. The problem being, I can't upload photos of a wedding we crashed while on our trip to California, (weak internet signal), and our company dispatchers have no regard for my blog. Go figure.
Wedding photos and the story that goes with it will be posted when our company dispatchers relocate us to a place with a more favorable signal.
I made the mistake of checking out the news this morning. Before that I was in a good mood.
Would you agree this great country of ours is still in somewhat of a economic crisis? Or is that all over and I didn't get the memo?
Why are we holding fundraisers for rich people? Why are we raising millions of dollars for people who already have millions of dollars?
There are a hundred out of work homeless folks within spitting distance of the White House.
Our politicians, on both sides of the isle, throw millions around with the ease of a funnel cake maker at the State fair. What's with that?
How did the political arena turn from a discussion of ideas to a horse race for the rich? Is it just me or is anyone else sickened by the millions and millions of dollars that trade hands in this poker game called politics.
Recently, George Clooney helped raise 15 million ( there's that "million" word again ) for President Obama.
What in the hell is George Clooney doing sticking his nose in politics? If I want some advice on method acting, I'll ask George, but I really don't care about George's ideas of reducing our debt.
Good actor? Yes. Nice hair? Absolutely. But seriously George, why don't you go for a drive on Mullholand drive and leave the country's problems to those who deal with them on a daily basis.
How about this for an idea. How about we come up with a plan to vote for a candidate because of his political views and not because he has the best P.R. man or the best fundraising team.
