The rantings and ravings of the Army life

...and life in general

The Facts:

I am a nurse, a mother, an Army wife and a National Guard soldier. I love all my jobs and my family. I tend to cry too much, laugh too loud, and make jokes that are offensive. I'm a nature-loving, gym addict, and overall fun person. I hate drama, but I love me some good gossip!

Canada is looking good

So I received this post from a friend of mine, I will be the first to say that this Presidential election of '08 has really frustrated me. I consider myself a "in the middle democrat". However I am(and so is my husband) in the military, so a Republican in office would ensure job security, yearly raises and new military funding as well as veterans benefits and education boosts. I had learned a lot about Obama over the last year and was not all approving, yet this Senator McCain, mind you, from my own home state of AZ, is a bit extreme in his own rights! So I thought I would share this post a friend sent me. I am not agreeing or supporting claims here. Just some info to chew on.

We're all a little confused. Let me see if I h
ave this straight.....

If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you're
'exotic, different.
' Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, a
quintessential American story.

If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

Attend 5 different s
mall colleges before graduating, you're well

If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, creat
e a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,
spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.

If your total resume is: local we
ather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with fewer than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 dau
ghters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

If you cheated on your first wife
with a rich heiress named Cindy Lou, and left your wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a good Christian...

If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of soci

, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible...
Never mind that you & First Dude eloped because of your own out-of-wedlock pregnancy...

If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America 's.

If you're husband is nicknamed 'First Dude,' with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA , your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

I hope this helps you figure o
ut who you really want in the White House people.
