Let me tell ya where I stand

I can't freakin' wait for elections to be over.

It has nothing to do with the incessant mud-slinging from both sides, although that would be enough. It's not even the fact that I can't sit down to watch tv or have dinner with my family without the commercials running, or the phone ringing, telling me how to think, how not to think, who I should vote for.

It's the arguing.

Not the candidates; us. I hate it. I liked it much better when I was younger and didn't give a shit. Picking a side polarizes, obviously. I am not one to have a lively discussion and agree to disagree. I try, but I can't. Well, I should say, I'm going to now. People keep asking me where I stand, and I haven't even wanted to get into it. So, here it goes, this is where I stand.

I believe in the sanctity of marriage. But I also believe you should be able to love whoever you love and have the same rights as I do. With everything else that's shitty in the world, do we have to point and tell you who you can marry? Worry about something else already.

I don't believe in killing babies. But I also don't believe it should go back to being done in back alleys.

I believe in assistance, helping someone who can't help themselves. But I don't believe in 'sharing the wealth'. If my husband works his ass off to provide for his family, I don't believe part of it should be given to the guy who drinks beer all day and sits in front of the tv, because he's too 'stressed' to get a job. Call me kooky, call me a neo-con fascist, I don't really care.

I don't believe all Muslims are evil. I also don't believe all Christians are evil either.

I don't believe Bill Clinton was the greatest president in history, and how the economy under his presidency was 'awesome'. I think he's a charming guy who got lucky in the fact that the big internet boom was going on at the same time, boosting the economy. Yes, luck, in the same sense of how not lucky it was for another president to have 4 planes crashing our country during his first few months in office.

Yes, I voted for George Bush. Twice. There, I said it. And I still think he was the better choice at the time. I believe in why we went to war. I don't believe we should still be there, but I don't have an answer for how we can get out safely. Do I believe there was a complete foobar over there? Hell yes I do. But I also don't think it was one man's fault.

I like Barack Obama. I voted for him in the primaries. I wish he would win for the fact that I think he would be a great roll model for young black men, AND young white men. I think he's got some great ideas, and I think he really cares. Honestly. But he scares me. I don't think socialism works.

Sarah Palin? I don't think she's the idiot people say she is; quite frankly she couldn't be and get where she is. So she winks at the camera and acts flirty? HELLO! Have you ever met a pretty woman that didn't?! That's what we're taught to do to get ahead in life!!

John McCain? Who knows. Yeah, he's an old dude. But he deserves a big amount of respect for his service to this country and I challenge anybody to say he hasn't.

Smarmy Biden? Yikes. People make fun of Bush for his glib attitude? You can almost see the *ding* of light reflecting off his perfect teeth. I can't STAND this guy, and it's not even about his great work in his home state. (uh...???!)

So, who am I voting for? I don't have a freakin clue. All I know is, I'm really worried about everything that's going on right now. My faith tells me to just pray for whoever the right person is to win. So that's what I intend to do. I'm also going to go all Rodney King and start shouting, "Can't we all just get along?!?!" I have very dear friends who I adore, and will never agree with on politics, or religion, so I intend to not discuss it with them, and hope that they love me enough to let me believe the way I want to believe, as I love them for what they believe. And forgive me for that terrible run-on sentence while they're at it.

A fantastic Fall day

Saturday the fam and I were able to take advantage of a beautiful day and went hiking with our friends Kev, Shan & McKenna in the Cuyahoga Valley. It was awesome and beautiful and even though we all were completely worn out and exhausted by the end of the trail, we had a great time!

An Open Letter to my Fellow Man (and Woman)

Hello Sir or Madam,

I have many years of experience in working with you. I have served you faithfully over the years, in many aspects. In my younger days, I have been able to let most things roll off my back. But since I am getting older, and less patient, I feel I have to make my feelings known.

Here are just a few guidelines I think you need to go by:

1.) I don't give a damn who says it, the customer is not always right. Sometimes you are just an asshole.

2.) When you go up to a counter, I don't care how big of a hurry you are in, if someone is being waited on, do not interrupt to ask a stupid question. It makes you look stupid and rude. Wait politely to the side until the employee makes eye contact. At that point, it's fair game to ask a dumb question. YOU are NOT more important than the person in front of you. Sorry to break it to you.

3.) While it is ok to call a place of business to ask a quick question, such as prices, availability, or store hours, it is NOT ok to keep that person on the phone for a complete rundown of every price on every service in the store, and to tell said person on the phone your entire life history. What you are doing by this is, a.) making the person who got off their ass and drove down to the store to get something in person wait, and b.) tie up the employee unnecessarily. Both are unacceptable. Douche.

4.) Watch your kids. This should be obvious, but for some needs to be emphasized. Please don't let your little monkey crawl all over my counter, because inevitably, it will be a filthy, semi-diseased, snot-filled mutant that will either a.) sneeze on me and make me take something nasty home to my own kids, b.) get something sticky all over my phone, or c.) fall and crack their pointed heads, thus creating that huge piercing scream that goes so well with the yapping pomeranians that are crapping on the other side of my desk.

5.) Do a google search for 'common courtesy' and find out what it means. It's not hard to hold open a frickin' door for someone, or God forbid, say THANK YOU when someone does it for you. My children know how to say thank you, what is it about a 30 yr old woman that she has forgotten? Don't you realize you can make or break a person's day just by saying or refusing to say 'thank you'?

6.) There is nothing wrong with someone that makes minimum wage. Let me repeat that: THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH SOMEONE THAT MAKES MINIMUM WAGE! It does not mean they are lazy or stupid or whatever. You don't need to treat us as such. Just because you may make more money than I do, DOES NOT give you the permission to talk down to me and make me feel less than you. Because you are not any better than the person handing you your change. Bitch.

I am on the other side of the counter as well, and believe me, I know it can be annoying to have an obnoxious little twit waiting on you. But I also know, that no matter how bad a day I am having, or how many people have pissed me off, or any tragedy in the day to day drama of life, if I have someone smile at me, I refuse to be rude to them. I am not that much of a bitch. And there is no reason for you to be either.

So suck it.
