socio-political commentary

I have absolutely no sympathy for Sean "Diddy" Combs, or anyone else who makes the following complaint:

"I'm actually flying commercial," Diddy said before walking onto an airplane, sitting in a first-class seat and flashing his boarding pass to the camera. "That's how high gas prices are. I'm at the gate right now. This is really happening, proof gas prices are too high. Tell whoever the next president is we need to bring gas prices down."

The poor little rich man can no longer afford to fly his private jet across country because now it costs more than $200K to do so. Boo-Freaking-Hoo. When he has to choose between eating and paying bills or getting medical care, then he will be allowed to complain. Until then, he can kiss my empty wallet.


Another sign of the times? It turns out that Bristol, the 17 year old daughter of Sarah Palin (McCain's choice for Vice President), is 5 months preggers. Years ago, Palin wouldn't have even been considered for Veep with an underage, pregnant, unmarried daughter, but I guess McCain's so desperate, he'll choose just about anyone. Or maybe he's going for the sympathy vote, though I hope America's too smart to fall for that. Teen pregnancy aside, I'd be really hard pressed to vote this ticket simply based on the fact that I've never heard of this woman.

Hey, do you remember our friends from Alaska, Bud and Sharon LeDoux? We had lunch with them before they headed south to their winter 'home' [RV] in Arizona. {isn't this the way of the world] They said that Alaska LOVES Palin. I don't have a problem voting for her even though her daughter made a bad choice. We all know we can't control our kids 100%. I am about to kill Dallas myself with his attitude problems some days. When does that end by the way!!!!! Anyway, I like Palin. Go figure. I would shoot Moose too if I ate it. I like that she went to college in Idaho. But you know me...Pro-life, Pro-guns, Pro-hunting [if you eat it], Very Right Winger, however a bit fiscally and helping people liberal, and last but not least-- I like a strong bitching woman! :D I just am scared of all the non-votes that Obama has placed in the Senate. ALSO...HATE HATE HATE his policies for the military. The Clinton years were hell for us military folk. I really don't want to see more of that. Oh well, I am voting for the candidate not their running mate. I love Binden. Go figure. I love you too sweetie!
