I've never personally had a slave, and no one in my ancestry has either. They immigrated here from Scandinavia after the civil war. And no black person alive now has ever been a slave....so....can we just move on?

That's what I was just telling my husband. Obama is making racial issues so much worse than they were. I grew up thinking that racial issues were a thing of the past. I was wrong. It's just shifting as to which races are being crapped on. This has moved beyond ridiculous.

I recently had a conversation at church with the doctor who delivered me and all but 1 of my siblings. He told me that he used to be able to just write off and forgive debts that he knew people couldn't pay, but he could no longer do that because of medicaid and medicare. You know what? I honestly think that if everyone were allowed to keep more of the money they earn instead of having it stolen for the government, people who are less fortunate would still be taken care of because people are a lot more generous when they actually have money to donate and help their neighbors out with. What's going to happen to places like Primary Children's hospital or St Jude's that are operated based on donations if Obamacare passes?

I think it would be neat if we could develop technology to take a fetus from one mother who would otherwise have an abortion and put it into someone who's willing to carry the baby to full term. That would certainly take the "babies dont grow in a petri dish" wind out of their sails. Of course they'd come up with a completely new argument for killing babies but I'm willing to bet it would save a few lives anyway. I think it'd be something to work on.

Well...way to fight the good fight then? You've got quite the conviction and stamina. I mean, it's been what, a few months? I think the founding fathers would be proud of your effort....they only fought the revolutionary war for almost a decade but you know, typing at your computer for a few months is pretty hard work too. Giving up seems like the best option.

I believe it's moderation in all things, not moderation in some things. In a relationship some jealousy is healthy. I think I'd be pretty worried if I was going out with other men and my husband just didn't care. Jealousy also is a factor that drives ambition. If everyone was 100% content with exactly what they have there would be no personal progress. Also, you have to use prejudice sometimes. If you're walking out to your car in a parking lot at night and there's a scary looking guy standing around you should probably use preconceived judgment and take some precautions. There are all sorts of instances we use prejudice. Dating, hiring employees, etc. They aren't all bad.

Her voting record is still a little iffy. She's been voting present on a lot of things and has still voted FOR some spending. I like her better than most but I'm having a hard time being convinced on how sincere she is.
