Mom, Getting Better and Better

Mom is doing great. During my last trip to Italy, which was three weeks long like the time before, her appetite improved a lot. When I first arrived, the thought of eating anything was repulsive to her. By the time I left, she was eating her meals with gusto.

Since coming home, I've been told her progress every day. Every day she has walked a little more than the day before. Before too long, she'll be walking better than before and going up and down stairs. That's the only thing she had left to do to get better and go home!

Obama Supporter?

Yes, yes, I am. I believe Barack Obama is the best hope we have to turn this country around and get us back on a firm footing. I believe that President Bush will be seen by historians as among the worst we've ever had. The reasons are many and I don't need to list them here - they have been written many times by many others.

I believe John McCain is too much like George Bush, agreeing with his policies 90% of the time. I believe the only presidential decision he has been able to make, the choice of a vice-presidential candidate, was very poorly made, leading to one of the least qualified vice-presidential candidates ever, especially when you consider McCain's advanced age and the lower probability that he will survive another four years without diminished capacity.

I have studied Barack's proposed policies and promises and agree strongly with him. I have also studied John McCain's and find myself dismayed by what he says, even when you take into account the number of times he has changed position. Obama has been consistent and he is a good man who will lead this country with honesty and wisdom.

I will apologize to nobody for my decision to support Obama and Biden. I take heart in the fact that the American people are starting to see through the lies and fear-mongering of McCain's people (Example: Obama is a Muslim terrorist! Obama's Christian pastor is a terrorist! Well, which is it? Is he a Muslim or is a Christian?).

On the other hand there are still too many racists in this country. Members of the ACORN organization have had their lives threatened and have had horrendously racist voice mails, laced with profanity, left on their voice mail. If you are not weak of stomach, you can see and hear what I mean by clicking here.

Please, look past your prejudices and ask yourselves whether you are really better off now than you were eight years ago, four years ago, even four months ago. If you really think George Bush was a great president, and if you do, you're one of the only 20% who still do, then by all means vote for John McSame and the totally unprepared and dangerous person who will take his place if he doesn't live another four years, Sarah Palin. If not, cast your vote for real change, wonderful change, and vote for Obama/Biden.

This is my blog and my opinion, based on real facts. If you disagree with me, write your own blog. If you wish to write negative comments, I will not post them. That's my right. You would just show me that you wish to attack me personally, because nobody else will see those comments. I don't want this to turn into a forum for racism and ignorance. If you are forward-thinking and ready for a change, you're welcome to post your comments here.

Life Has No Meaning

I have not had coffee in 12 days now. I had decided I was getting too addicted and wanted to cleanse my body of all that caffeine, so from the minute I got off the plane from Italy, I have not let a drop pass my lips. I also have been short on money so that's another reason. As I wrote a while back, Scott Adams, maker of Dilbert, had written that life without caffeine has no meaning. Well, I know what he means! I have been so sleepy, though luckily the headaches have stopped.

Maybe I'll one day have a cup of coffee again. I still have a lot of cravings for it. We'll see!

Last night I had a dream in which someone handed me a cup of coffee. I took a sip...and I woke up! Wow, that was powerful coffee!
