    I saw that on facebook this morning and reposted it. Sometimes I think I actually enjoy pissing off the conservative republican's on my page


    Side note: I remember after Obama won his first election, I called my in laws the day after, because my husband was in Iraq and had called and wanted me to ask them something for him, and his dad asked me how I felt about the election. When I replied with "I'm honestly excited and happy." his instant response was "well, here's your mother in law" and then handed off the phone. I laughed.
    Ugh I hate people like that. My grandma always says the devil himself could be running democrat and she would still never vote republican. so over the top!

    I know. Sometimes blind loyalty is just as dangerous as not voting at all. My in-laws and husband have an annoying tendency to vote on single subjects, for them generally, that would be guns. They have all bought into the NRA bs line of "the democrats will take away your guns if the get enough power"...and all but my DH are members of the NRA (I finally got through to him, about a year ago).



    Found this article on the debate and the media coverage interesting.

    Im so in love with you hunny. I know I have never felt this powerful of a love before, I have only thought it was possible for those rare lucky few. And now I think we have it. Or are we just now part of the lucky rare few? XOXO Love you hun. -DH 9/8/11

    Isn't that how it went for Obama when he first ran? Grassroots campaign with a lot of momentum and promising change for young people. It could work again. I really thought when I heard Hillary was running she would be a shoe in, but Sanders is talking about changing exactly the kind of stuff that really bothers the average American, I think.

    I also think finally the older Republican crowd is dwindling. The younger, more progressive crowd that wants to see exactly the kind of change Sanders is talking about are older and more responsible and voting now. Here's to hoping, anyway!

    I noticed that too.

    I'm seriously annoyed with how many news networks are so far up Hillary's ass that they genuinely believe she won that debate I cannot wait for primaries, I really hope Sanders pulls it off and beats her. If the viewer polls don't lie, most people already like Bernie over Hillary anyways.
