So I went to grab the rest of the stuff and take pictures of my car. The damage was not as bad as I thought but since my car is a 97 and repairs would cost more than $2,000 my car will most likely by totaled.
Can you see my tears?
It can definitely be called a compact car now

so at work today I had to wear a sticker that said in big bold letters "I'M IN!"
yeah I could not put it on without laughing, it is a horrible slogan for anything.
Today my parents are celebrating their 25th anniversary, I cannot even fathom being with some for a year dating wise. So I am blown away with people being together for 25 years that is a lot of time to spend around one another. Anybody who can hit that milestone or farther gets mad props in my book (that would be my book of props giving vol. 2)
Two completely different things but both necessary to write about enjoy.

So we were all expecting change right? Then why am I seeing a continuation of the Clinton era. Granted I do not know the qualifications of many of these people, all I have seen when each cabinet member is announced is "served in Clinton administration/appointed by Clinton." Not a good sign. I would say they should have campaigned against a third term for Clinton but that would probably have been met with applause. Everyone seems to have a sugar coated memory of him. Honestly he was no where near the smartest president the United States has had and his foreign policy was a joke, which is why I am not thrilled about his wife being named Secretary of State. What qualifications does she have for the job, there were plenty of better qualified Democrats, Republicans and probably independents as well who would have made better choices.
Adding to the celebration our Governor will be leaving us in the middle of her term to accept the position of Secretary of Homeland Security. This is not that uncommon so that does not shock me, what makes me upset is the fact that she is leaving Arizona in a financial mess. I hope Jan Brewer can help the state out, although I doubt anybody knows what her plans are, let alone her qualifications.

I pretty sure I died a little inside last night watching CNN. A good man was almost president, but now never will.
The United States did not turn any corner last night. Racism played a role in this election along with sexism, and ageism (i think that is how it is spelled), but the last two really did not get any coverage by the media. Actually the media used ageism in the questions to the public. We base our choices on the looks of others either because we like them or we do not. Not on the issues that face us and are important to our future.
Prop 102 passed
Sheriff Joe is still in office,
What is worse is that Andrew Thomas is still around, I think I would have been fine with Sheriff Arpaio as long as we had an Attorney General who had some integrity and was some what competent.
The election is over and what can you do. The choices were made and now we need to accept them and move on. In two years we get another chance to make certain changes if things are not working out as planned.

so it has almost been a week since the first presidential debate of the 08 Election.
My general consensus, the debate was........................a bust.
nothing new came out of the debate. It was the two candidates basically repeating their campaign speeches and their positions. If you went in a McCain supporter that is how you came out, with the added thought that he won the debate, and if you were an Obama supporter that is how you came out, also thinking that your candidate had won.
It was a little unlucky for both candidates that the first part of the debate ended up being about the economic issue, which it seemed that no one had prepared for. They repeated their economic plans and kind of stumbled around when asked if they would support the bailout bill. I was upset to see that neither candidate could come up with any programs they would have to cut from their plans due to the lack of funds and the bailout. After getting into foreign policy for a while the debate started to get a little more lively with the candidates going back and forth without being provoked by the moderator.
If you watch the debate on a split screen (seeing both candidates at the same time) you had a better idea of how the debate went because you can watch how each candidate responds. I have heard that McCain looked strained, and flustered (like he was getting upset) when Obama talked about foreign policy, and that Obama looked flustered and worried when McCain talked. That is up to interpretation. One thing was brought up was that throughout the entire debate McCain referred to Obama as Senator Obama, while Obama would address McCain as Senator McCain sometimes but mostly referred to him as John. Now because they both hold the same position they are allowed to drop the title and call each other by their first names. A House member cannot refer to a senator or governor in this manner and vice versa. In the case of Biden and Palin tonight, Biden must refer to Palin as Governor Palin, and Palin must refer to Biden as Senator Biden.
Since the debate was a draw people are giving it to Obama because he held his own in what is suppose to be "McCain's best area". A draw is a draw though.
I am hoping that the next debate is a town meeting format so that should be interesting and hopefully more lively.
I am excited for the Palin/Biden debate tonight I am a little uneasy that the moderator has written a book, which includes writing about Obama. It is a conflict of interest in my opinion, I am just hoping that she can be as impartial as she says she is. You can look back to one of the Democratic Nomination Debates where George Stephanopoulos, President Clinton's communications director, was one of the moderators and went easy on Senator Clinton but was harsher towards Senator Obama.
next post will probably be on the bail out

I deleted an earlier post because I was unhappy with its lack of objectivity. I will be posting soon about my thoughts on the debate that I will be objective about. so look forward to that.
So here is a question that I am just trying to get feedback to see what different people think.
here is the question:
Do you believe that people with higher incomes should be forced to pay higher taxes than people with lower incomes and why?
