Where is the love?

Filed under: Politics — Tags: — choosetheright @ 10:40 pm

The country seems so incredibly divided at this time.  Prop 8 in California and 102 here in AZ about gay marriage, and the economy, and Obama/McCain supporters seem to split the population with extremely different opinions. 

I was listening to Glenn Beck today and he was talking about this.  And he was saying how much hatred there is between the parties. He said the first step to getting over this is admitting there is a problem.  Everyone is entitled to their opinions.  And everyone needs to respect other’s opinions. 

Sometimes I think I forget that.  I’ll be honest, and say that a lot of times I mumble about people who don’t believe the same as I do.  I think I’ll start to be part of the solution by stopping that.  I love debate and different opinions.  I think that’s part of the beauty of America. 

So I appriciate all your comments, and hope you can still feel the love. Even if we’re polar opposites.  🙂

Venting.

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — choosetheright @ 10:07 pm

So I’ve been tuning back into my talk radio.  Can’t help it, I’m hooked.  A lot has happened since my last post. (Powell’s endorsement, Biden’s prophecy,.. ) I don’t even know what to say about it.  I originally started this blog because I enjoyed the debate and conversation it stirred. It was a place for me to feel like I was voicing my opinion and getting out there somewhere in the blogosphere and standing for what I believe.  But the truth?  I’m a mommy-blogger.  Who happens to like political talk radio and agrees 99% of the time with Glenn Beck.  I don’t like controversy.  I thought on the blog I didn’t mind it, but really it started to consume me and I would be thinking about what to say all day!  And I got obsessed with statistics. 

So I took a break.

But now I just want to talk about a few things that I just don’t really get.  Like Obama’s association with the “New Party”, ACORN, Ayers, Rev. Wright, etc.  Isn’t obvious this man has really bad judgement??  Or he’ll do absolutely anything to get elected.  And his quote that I’ve heard 2,394 about “redistributing the wealth”.  Is everyone really willing to see the end of capitolism?  Do you really want to see the end of the best healthcare in the world?

There’s all this talk about change.  The change I’d like to see is going back to our roots.  Let’s READ the constitution.  Let’s end career politics.  It used to be that people would leave their farms and whatever, go to congress for two years, then go back to their life.  They stayed in touch with reality.  For the people, by the people.  I think we need to go back to the ideals and values America was founded on. 

I know this will never happen.  But I think McCain might be just a smidge closer than Obama.  Not that either is a saint.  (Notice I didn’t even post about the last two debates?  Just disgusting.)  I really don’t think the election is “over”, as much of the media has said.  Almost everyone is saying it will certainly be president Obama.  I’m not so sure.  But even if it is, let’s hope he is who he says he is.  Let’s hope all the right-wing talking heads are wrong.  Let’s hope his association with Ayers means nothing.  Let’s hope our children’s future isn’t mortaged anymore than it is already. 

Anyone else ready for the whole thing to just be over?

VP Debate

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , — choosetheright @ 3:56 am

I’ll be honest, again I missed most of the debate, and it’s been a rough night for my baby.  But I listened to as much as I could.  I heard the beginning and the end, and some of the middle.  Here’s what I came away with.

Biden said something along the lines of the job of the VP is to support the President.  Every time Palin speaks, she always sounds so supportive of McCain.  Even though there are areas they disagree, and she open about that, she is very aware of his accomplishments and you hear her respect for him in her voice.  I think that’s so important and crucial to being VP.  I do not get that same impression from Biden.  The impression I get from Biden is “I’m better than you.” 

Palin brought up so many good points about education, taxes, oil, etc.  I agreed with about 90% of what I heard from her.  Maybe it’s because I put so much value on motherhood, but I think her experience is enough to qualify her for VP and even the presidency.  Right now a major issue is oil, and I really think that she knows exactly what she’s talking about when it comes to the oil supply in Alaska and taking on oil companies. 

I loved when she said that there are no promises made that they can’t keep.  And on major principles she’s never changed her mind.  But really tonight, I just liked her.  I relate to her.  She’s charming and real.  That in no way qualifies her for VP, but tonight I cried realizing here is a woman who is not so different than me and she’s running for VP.  American really is the land of opportunity.

But I’ll end by saying, she definitely held her own tonight and I think she hit the grand slam the McCain camp needed her to tonight.

(Oh, and I guess Gwenn Ifill didn’t do so bad afterall 🙂 )

More liberal bias in the media.

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — choosetheright @ 7:35 pm

Gwen Ifill is set to host the VP debate tomorrow night. 

Did you know she has a book due out on inauguration day?  Not just a book, a pro-Obama book.

Hmm, what bias could she possibly have that might influence the debate?

This woman will make money if Obama wins the election.

This is a horrible idea, and I hope they do something about it.  Even if Ifill is fair (and that’s a big if), you know everyone is going to scrutinize every comment and question.

I am not Catholic, but have to agree with this video.  It’s pretty dramatic, a little over-the-top but I’m hormonal and it made me cry anway. 

By the way, in order to vote you have to be registered by October 3rd.  (At least in Arizona.)  That’s just ’round the corner!

Born Alive Infants Protection Act

Filed under: Obama-Hatin', Politics — Tags: , , — choosetheright @ 4:56 pm

Okay I have done a lot of research on this act because I seriously couldn’t believe what I read (in my Glenn Beck newsletter).  Here’s the quote that started me on this rampage:

Well, this is the story of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and it goes back to a hospital in the southwest suburbs of Chicago called Christ Hospital where they were performing on a regular basis induced labor abortions and these are late second, early third trimester abortions in which the drugs are given to the mother to induce violent labor and the baby is usually killed in the contractions and comes out. But about 15 to 20% of the time this produces a a live baby is born, I should say. And sometimes the babies will live just for a few minutes, sometimes for several hours. But this hospital was not giving any thought to medical treatment for them when they survived and could have potentially lived on and saved in incubator under whatever sort of medical technology we have to keep premature babies alive. They were simply shelving them and

Here Glenn cuts him off and makes sure he heard him correctly.  These babies were surviving abortions and the hospital was just letting them die.  And this law that was going before legislation in Illinois was not even to stop them from doing this, but to change the conditions in which these babies were being left to die. Check out testimonies of Jill Stanek  These babies were being stored in the same utility closets that were being used for medical waste.  No one was against this at the Federal level.  George Bush signed the federal law in December of 2006.  The only person on the Senate voting against this law was Barak Obama.  You can read the transcript of the interview where this is discussed here: http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/196/15318/.  Obama has some really sketchy reasons as to why he doesn’t support this law.  (It finally did pass in 2005 when Obama was out of the Senate).  He says it would place another burden on women and “he just couldn’t support that”.  Even Hillary Clinton agrees a women’s right to chose is gone when the baby leaves her womb.

I researched most of what David Freddoso had to say in this interview myself.  I literally could not believe what I was reading.  This man is not just liberal, I believe if he is elected it will truely be the end of America as we know it.  I will be honest, I have a lot to learn about John McCain, but anything anything  is better than someone who supports infantcide.  If you are seriously supporting Obama please research seriously where he stands on the ISSUES.  It’s great that he can deliver a speech like no one else, but is that really what matters when it comes to running this country?
