Been a while since I blogged here. They actually disabled my account. Can you imagine? Only twelve years.... Perhaps I didn't blog much because I think that during the Obama years we had it good: understanding, intelligent president, lost of government transparency, and progress on things I care about like the environment, discrimination, and healthcare. Sure, there's always room for improvement, but at least it was solid leadership. I have very little positive to say about the current administration. Wait, there is one thing: Vice President Pence has selected a MAS (Miniature...
 
True Colors

Not as close as what the mainstream media wants you to believe. When the media declared a "dead heat" today, they are misleading the public. I believe that in order for Kerry to win, he MUST take Florida. Even then, it might be close. But he must change the focus of his message to appeal to senior citizens and bring in as many heavy hitters as he can to stump for him. To his credit, Kerry chose to show up for the AARP convention...
