212. Sorry wasn't ignoring you. My response is in light of having family
who are going to vote for *. I watched it listening to see/hear what they would see/hear because they do watch programs like 60 Minutes and Dateline when they won't watch or listen to anything else but Faux News.

Once they said that he had been demoted and that the papers did not stated "Wrong Answer" along with a couple of other things, well it was three strikes you are out pretty much.

As Catwoman or someone said, there is still the public testimony for the 9-11 commission...I only hope it will help to break the dark cloud over the American people.

I just got into an argument with my Mom several days ago after finding out that my daughter-in-law was laid off w/o notice as a lab tech with a petroleum/chemical type plant. She has a BA in Science. I stated, well and I guess you will all still vote for *. I said it was all due to * and this outsourcing crap and the economy due to his ignorance.

She argued that it has NOTHING to do with him. I stated no you are right as long as they profess to pray to God and believe in Jesus then there is nothing that they do that is wrong. I ended the conversation on a not good note.

There was NO doubt in her at all about NOT voting for *. I don't usually get into the personal thing and get upset with my mom about politics, etc., but now part of my family is hurting due to his assine shit!

What is even more maddening is that it's like someone being in an abused relationship and NOT seeing that the beatings and such are killing them...they just can't or won't see the truth because of the fear!

I'm sure it is just something left over from that mess that is causing me to be overly pessimistc and I apologize. I'm not trying to dampen anyone's parade or shine an ugly light on something that will hopefully break the spell that is over the people of the US.

Cheers to you all...
