My small part of history


My small part of history, originally uploaded by freeloosedirt.

If you didn't gasp

and get a little lump in your throat, then I feel sorry for you

Is this what it felt like

when America was new?

Get Out The Frickin' Vote!!!

I hope that you had the pleasure of going to a "Get Out The Vote" calling party this election. I did, and was very impressed by the organization of the Obama campaign. Initially, I was a little intimidated by the automated nature of the calling; I called a number from my cell phone, entered a user ID and password, hung up and waited for a call back. From that moment on, I waited for the "beep" and was connected to a home in Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Florida or Pennsylvania depending on the day and time of day. I didn't know who this person was on the other end: maybe they were an Obama supporter, a McCain supporter, were they home? were they needing the information that I had in front of me about finding the polling place?

I'm glad I spent the time doing this. I wish I had done more. I hope you feel good about what you did this election.

Why Are You Supporting McCain??

I am voting for John McCain for President because:

3) Obama is radical black militant
4) I like McCain because he opposed the Iraq War
4a) I like McCain because he became a cheerleader for the Iraq War
4b) I like McCain because he was a proponent for "The Surge" which
would calm violence in Iraq and give the Iraqi government space to
govern so US troops could leave
4c) I like McCain because he said "The Surge" worked when violence increased
4d) I like McCain because he said "The Surge" worked when violence decreased
4e) I like McCain because he said "The Surge" worked and now we can't leave Iraq
5) I like McCain because he stood against torture and sponsored a bill
forbidding torture
5a) I like McCain because he voted against his own bill
6) I like McCain because he stood up to his own party for sensible
immigration reform
6a)I like McCain because he opposed his previous position on immigration.
7) I liked it when McCain called the Bush tax cuts irresponsible given
the deficit
7a) I liked it when McCain proposed making the tax cuts permanent
because to roll them back would be irresponsible given the deficit.
8) I liked it when McCain pointed out that Obama was too inexperienced
to become president
8a) I liked it when McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate,
because she was a small town mayor less than two years ago.
9) McCain was a POW
10) I think it would have been cool if 40% of my retirement had been eaten up in the Wall Street collapse.
11) Joe The Plumber looks like "Teh Hot"
