For Now

This and This. Consider your lady bits when you go to the polls - and excuse any humor, this is actually really really serious business. This actually reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend about a week and a half ago - a point Flotsam brings up - as if choosing abortion would ever be the "easy" way out. Sad.

Also, I went to a fabulous and beautiful heartfelt wedding this weekend. Just lovely, pictures/descriptions forthcoming, but for now:

there was a drunken cousin there (not mine!) who cornered Jamaal and me, told us to vote McCain/Palin because "just because I make $350,000 a year doesn't mean I'm not middle class and Obama's gonna tax the hell out of me" and then made us justify why we were both voting for Obama ( about point #1: you make 9x what I make and Jamaal and I would have to combine and then double our joint income to even come close to a tax increase under the Obama plan). While I must say I respect her blatant honesty as opposed to the people who won't come out with their real reason for voting one way or the other - ie "Sarah Palin is just so lovely" "John McCain is a maverick" "Obama lacks experience" or even the pro-Obama folk who are just like "da dee dum dum dum he's a democrat - he is, therefore I vote" (which is great cause it's a vote for Obama, but couldn't you at least come up with a more interesting line of reason?) Anywho, I wonder if drunk cousin Sxxxxx, as a mother of three, would have kept up her argument had she known this stance. Of course given that she didn't even recognize me the next day, I'm thinking she wouldn't have remembered the conversation anyways.

This is old news, but direct from the campaign website:

John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned

Also, if I were ever to make $350,000 a year I would just suck it up and pay the tax.

ha ha ha me too, and be glad that I fell in that tax bracket. I mean we're talking about 350,000 in MISSOURI. Not to be a jerk, but that's a far cry from 350,000 in Boston, yet if I had 350,000 a year in Boston, I'd still be wealthy! SHE HAD A SOUTH AMERICAN LIVE IN AU PAIR!!!

As for the abortion thing - my mind was made up long ago, bit if there was ever any wavering, it just went out the door. For good. Of course I am so anti-government interference when it comes to my body, especially the lady bits, that I would probably vote for a candidate based on that issue alone. STAY AWAY FROM MY UTERUS GOP! GRRRR!
