We as a culture and as individuals are in a meltdown pattern---the last legacy of George W. Bush---in a long,long list of failures his biggest failure---has been the destruction of the morale of the American people---and until the end of the election i think this condition will stay the same---people are well----well, just strange right now---it seems as if people are acting like dogs feeling the approach of a thunderstorm---they are anxious and know something is out there?? But they don't know what it is or which way to run---so the public is clawing at their pen or digging at the fence line in fear....trying to run to someplace, anywhere safe--unfortunately the Bush administration by taking away everything has now left us with nothing---am i the only one noticing this strange behavior in people---am i making something out of nothing?
The new model Prius is out in automobile spy photo's....pundits are claiming improved gas mileage due to a new gasoline engine which is larger than the model i have but that produces better fuel economy when in the gas mode and an improved electric power system for operation in town---NO PLUG IN however...Fall and Spring are always the best months for me mileage wise on my commute to work---once winter arrives and the headwind comes from the north i watch my mileage drop from 56 mpg daily to 46 mpg daily....balancing out to a yearly 51 mpg----for which i truly cannot bitch....and NO i am not rushing out to buy a new prius I'm happy with what i have and it is free and clear..Occasionally i do think about trying to locate and purchase a used honda insight--one of the original models from a few years ago and restore it...and use it for commuting---it was a two seater--which makes more sense as a smaller footprint vehicle--and actually beats the prius on overall mileage in some aspects--although---restoring a high-tech vehicle like this could be very difficult...right now it is just a thought experiment for me---but interesting to say the least...
The last debate summed it all up rather well---I was very proud of Obama--he stood up for Roe vs. Wade and did not run from it....McCain sounded exactly the same as all the republican one liner muck rakers we've had to deal with over the years and the difference between him and Obama was astounding and obvious according to all the polls the public rejected McCain's business as usual behavior patterns...the Washington Post in casting their endorsement for Obama wrote an excellent article summarizing the reasons why he is the Neo we need and describing Obama's message and his attitude....
Joining the Obama endorsement line-up is the Chicago Tribune a newspaper which has not endorsed a democratic candidate in 161 years---yes you read that right-----in 161 years of publishing Obama is the first democrat endorsed by the Chicago Tribune newspaper----
I was also pleased that the mob attitude of Palin's rallies came up in the debate---(which I described in my last blog) Then of course there's the latest prayer used at a McCain event which basically went like "our God is better than anyone else's and prove it by having McCain become President"---my brain says these people can't be for real but if you doubt it read this.....
I felt that Obama was a gentleman but strong in responding to McCain's lies on the Redneck event issues....today i did my early voting and there was about 20 people there doing the same thing...........my vote's in....what about yours?
My Soprano soundtrack is in and although i love the title track--woke up this morning---the cd itself plays as if it was badly mixed on my little home stereo------so it goes to the car--with the title track for usage driving into work..which is what i was truly thinking about when i purchased this item---I can't recommend this CD to you due to the well strange collection of other material on it and the overall bad quality of the mix-----
ART-i need to do more on a daily basis rather than as a special occasion project....GARDENING---i need to plan out for next year--what i want to do and how i intend to do it....PRIUS---i have had a mileage increasing, geek-birth control wheel cover project on hold for quite some time and i need to make that happen...WEATHER STATION---my old weather station was destroyed in the house remodel and i need to obtain a new one to begin monitoring the weather patterns at my house again...JOURNAL---the world has been so busy it has become difficult to set aside my previously normal recording of my life in my moleskins, i cannot let this fall by the wayside.....I'm not a putz just simply trying to get myself back on track when it comes to the small things in life that can get pushed aside so easily..
