Puppy Dog Thoughts

-Guys like dogs. But we usually like rough and ready dogs like the Doberman, German Shepherd, hounds, and bullies.
-Marcela has been set on getting a puppy for a while. Yesterday she won.
-She picked out a soft little white Maltese boy and named him Maximus. Maximus could have been named Minimus since he is supposed to grow to about 6-9 pounds.
-He’s a very sweet little fella, but he doesn’t look very tough. He’s not going to be able to protect Marcela from much more than a mouse.
-This breed is supposed to be the ultimate companion dog and they supposedly do not shed. And according to all that I have read, they are not prone to excessive barking, digging, chewing, or health issues.
-We have got to get rid of all the other critters in the house. We have little parrots, a turtle with fish, and two hermit crabs.
-In the debate last night, as I was watching I was thinking that McCain won. At the end of the debate, the commentators explained that Obama won. I just don’t understand the criteria of a debate. I thought it was based on issues, but apparently it’s based on personality and the ability to talk smoothly.
-Why does the mainstream news ignore other big domestic issues like immigration, gun control, and judicial restraint? McCain has not pushed the point either, even though his views line up with the majority of America.
-The election is less than three weeks away and the McCain campaign has shown a lack of discipline on message and theme. Who nominated him? He’s the better of the two choices by far, but he is too liberal for my preference.
-One of the major issues facing this nation is the entitlement mentality. Under a President Obama, entitlement programs will grow. The cuts proposed by Obama will not address welfare or entitlements. You can be sure the military will be cut and taxes will be increased if he is elected.
-Maybe next time around, the conservatives will come out and ensure we are afforded a true conservative choice.
-“Joe the Plumber” is America’s most popular guy. Too bad he is rich and will have to pay more taxes. He is going to have to spread his wealth to the poor.

Presidential Election Turned Upside Down

Who would have thought that at this point in the campaign: Obama would be struggling to meet fundraising benchmarks, he would be trying to hide celebrities, as the ticket of “change” he would be running with an establishment Democrat (Biden) while trying to suppress his opposition by saying the VP is too inexperienced; that McCain who is a long term senator would be running his campaign on the theme of “change”, his VP candidate (Palin) would be the most popular politician in the US, his campaign would be destroying fundraising benchmarks and being greeted with huge record crowds, his VP would be the “Rock Star”, old white Republican men would be stating that a woman is best equipped to be vice president while liberal feminists would be saying that a mother of 5 should not be VP but should stay home and take care of the kids?
