my thoughts on obama and a new tag-o-rama

For the record, I am disappointed with the outcome of the election, but not surprised. I wasn't crazy about either candidate, but I do think there was a lesser of two evils there. I found it frustrating how it was totally made out to be an election based on race rather than what the men had to say, their platform, their opinions, etc. What if a chinese american had run for president? Should we all vote him in just because he's different and we've never had a chinese american president before? Anyway, I'm sick of it all and will be glad to go back to the days without 8 hundred million political telemarketing calls all the live long day.

I congratulate the Obama platform and pray that they along with the Democratic House of Representatives will be responsible with our country. We've been told that the state of our government and country and world will get worse before it gets better, and I only fear that this is one more step toward our "constitution hanging on by a thread." (Joseph Smith) Let's pray not.

Now, on a lighter side, My friend Dahlene sent this survey to me via email, and since I am so sick to death of all the political talk, I thought I'd repost this and tag anyone interested.

Fill this out about your senior year of high school. The longer ago it was, the more fun the answers will be.

it was an 84 Dodge Aries I think. Even then, I don't think I ever drove it to school. I lived 45 miles away!

5. What kind of car do you have now? Honda Odyssey minivan

6. It's Friday night...where are you now? Home, doing homework likely

7. It is Friday night...where were you then? Home, doing homework likely (I said, I lived 45 MILES AWAY from the school! There wasn't much of a social life) I feel like I've come full-circle!

I would have to disagree on the race issue with the election. Obama never once in all of his running mentioned his race or that we should vote for him because of that. Media played that card, not the man who was running. I know many who voted for him because of his platform and plans and never once thought that they were voting for a black man. I have many many views on the election that I'm gonna post tonight, hopefully you will all stil like me after I say my thoughts =>

I didn't know you grew up in Salome. I grew up in Mayer and I always dreaded playing you guys. It was a 3 hour trip on the bus. Gotta love those small town schools!
