The Labor Day weekend is depressing to me, as it signals the end of summer. I am a fool for Fall though (my favorite season), but thegrandson acts like this is the end of playing in the yard, and enjoying outside activities. I've assured him that is not the case.

I still have a number of things rolling around in my head, but I prefer to digest and organize the thought before posting anything...or it will sound like (rightfully so) garbage.

the on thing I can say is: I'm sick and tired of all the bipartisan efforts that have been made - and I say enough already. Work with your own party and let the chips fall where they may. There are so many in the country at the moment - that will do or say anything to destroy this administration - just because he is an African-American. If you don't like that statement - too damn fucking bad! It's the truth. The rethuglicans have no proposals of their own - they choose to send out 19 page proposals and call it the greatest. No, their time is better spent propagating lies and distortions - what a sad state of affairs.

I have tried to carry on rather intelligent conversations with my right wing friends and others - and they can only recite verbatim, all the talking points of the right - and cannot back up one single position with fact. That's tragic.

Anyway....I found this on Liberality's blog and I will post also - as it speaks volumes to the mentality of this "news" agency's followers. (I use that term loosely btw).

Tomorrow I will be calling thegrandson's school to see if the students will be viewing Pres. Obama's address. If they are not...decisions will have to be made, whether I want to take this to the school board. If I thought this speech would be televised here at home, I would let him stay and watch from here.

Also, I look forward to Wednesday nights address to Congress. If I were advising Obama, I would tell him to pull out all the stops and start playing hardball.

For someone who wasn't going to write much here, I've gone over my limit. Have a safe and nice Labor Day weekend. Later...............

That Faux Noise cartoon says it all, doesn't it? I can't believe the idiots that believe that crap.

I have a friend who is otherwise intelligent, creative and charming who buys it hook, line and sinker. Heck, she even made a sign, put on her Birkenstocks and went to that stupid tea bagger party a few months ago. I thought it funny that she had to go alone because she couldn't find a friend to go with. Like I said, she's otherwise bright and fun to be around-- just don't mention politics.

Things I can't wait for:

a) National Healtcare (and, yes, I do know what I'm talking about I lived in a country with National Health for a year...Have you Mr. Faux News?

b) That drug-abuse-induced deafness that they promised us would hit Limbaugh. Even that probably wouldn't shut him up.

Love the toons and agree fully that when one part of the bipartisan effort has shown they have no interest in ever taking part in a bipartisan effort to PASS anything, then the other part need to leave them in the dust and label them as "the people who tried to keep you from having affordable healthcare" for every election until the end of time.

The boys' school called us today to let us know they'd be showing the speech. I just figured all of them would.

If the school chooses not to let the kids watch The. President. Of. The. United. States. as He makes his speech to our youth? Take him out of school for that portion of the day and watch it with him at home.
I was hoping our school was immune to all of that BS, and I cannot fukking believe it....I learned that there are e-mails complaining.... I am so angry I am beside myself. Our solution is that we will be watching in the "Greatroom", but the classrooms will be open for those who wish to "opt out." Our school administrator, who is a neighbor and a treasured friend, says she tries to keep out of the policical stuff of the parents at the school.... I can't. I don't know how she does it???? She told me, just this past Friday, that some of our kids came to school wearing black after he won the election. I was absolutely HORRIFIED!!! I did not know that in this day and age, in our loverly, well educated, suburban world that people really did that!! My ignorance is bliss....

my kids are out of school BUT I still think it's a crying shame that the school system here REFUSED to show President Obama's speech.
