Read Dad’s reply to this email.

I have no idea where this came from or if it’s for real.  But it is interesting.  The version I got was bold but it screwed up the post if left it that way but that’s the only change.  I didn’t get the attachment.  Does anyone have it? 

hey Dad
Let’s talk later today. Looking for what you think and what you’ve been thinking. Here is mine. Give me the best reasons that I should vote for McCain and tell me if what I’ve found is a load of bull. I’m having trouble thinking it through. Maybe too much CNN & SNL haha Also need to check out what obama might do to small businesses – havn’t had time to do that do you have anything?I’m thinking okay, McCain has done such strange things over the last couple of weeks and Sarah Palin isn’t ready so thought it best to check out Obama’s tax plan for myself.

Taxes and taking care of my family is my issue – it’s the only issue as far as I’m concerned. However, McCain is obviously the only choice for national defense. Finally, a war hero as the president – – – – but that won’t pay my bills.

You’d have to make over $250,000 a year for your taxes to increase under the Obama plan. I’ve attached a chart. So this idea that he’s gonna raise taxes on us may not be right – unless your somebody that I’m not – no way I make close to $250,000 a year. I wish!

I’m also looking at gas prices. My taxes didn’t go down much during Bush’s time but gas has gone crazy. So they lowered my taxes by a few dollars and then raised the price of gas x 3.

And it ticks me off that the top people at oil companies are getting rich while we are getting robbed at the gas stations.

They had record profits and some CEOs made over $30 million in one year.

When Bush took office the average price of gasoline was $1.56 per gallon. Now it’s $4.07 . I don’t know who is to blame but I know that my tiny tax cut didn’t pay for the out of pocket that I have in gas.

Do you think that the numbers from the Census adjusted for inflation are right? I’m not sure how this works but it looks like most of us lost more than $2,000 a year in income since Bush has been in office. That makes since because at work we’re cutting back cutting back – asking to pay more of our own health insurance. While prices have gone up up up, work gives me less less less. Dad, is the Washington Times an okay sourc? Aren’t they conservative? Maybe I’m wrong if so discount this story – read title=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/aug/27/household-incomes-flat-during-bush-administration/” href=”http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/aug/27/household-incomes-flat-during-bush-administration/”>this story from the Washington Times. the country has lost jobs for the last 7 months and house values are zomming down.I know my house is worth lots less now. We wanted to move when Tom hit 6th grade but I don’t think we could pay off the mortage with what’d we’d get.

Here is the Obama tax thing in a nut shell – Looks like my taxes would go down. I’d have to make over $250,000 to get an increase.

Other stuff I found and it is making me lean against the party. I just can’t keep going backwards financially . Maybe you have to be rich for it to work for you. I’m I off here?

Exxon has had record profits. They booked $11.7 billion JUST IN one quarter. Here is an article on it:

Last year, the CEOs of the 15 largest oil companies took home a total of $512.9 million, averaging over $34 million each. The top earner of $95.1 million was Bill Greehey, top executive of Valero Energy, the la…you can read more here

Here it is – word for word – the latest post from Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson on Linday’s MySpace Blog. Not only do they slam Sarah Palin in detail, they also talk about the “Love Won Out Conference” being sponsored by Palin’s church. Yes, they are going to pray away the gay in Alaska.

Bent Alaska had a little blurb about the “conference”:

“Programs like Love Won Out are dangerous for kids and divisive for families,” said PFLAG National executive director Jody M. Huckaby. “Every bit of evidence available suggests that children who grow up in homes that accept them – and not try to change them – are far happier and healthier than those subjected to these anti-family tactics. It is nothing short of extremist to imply that families should do anything other than love their children as they are, and nothing short of outrageous to infer that LGBT kids aren’t fine just the way they are.”

UH OH!
Current mood: shocked

 

I really cannot bite my tongue anymore when it comes to Sarah Palin.

I couldn’t be more supportive of a woman in office, but let’s face it, it comes down to the person, and their beliefs, male or female.

Is it a sin to be gay? Should it be a sin to be straight? Or to use birth control? Or to have sex before marriage? Or even to have a child out of wedlock?

I find it quite interesting that a woman who now is running to be second in command of the United States, only 4 years ago had aspirations to be a television anchor. Which is probably all she is qualified to be… Also interesting that she got her passport in 2006.. And that she is not fond of environmental protection considering she’s FOR drilling for oil in some of our protected land…. Well hey, if she wants to drill for oil, she should DO IT IN HER OWN backyard. This really shows me her complete lack of real preparation to become the second most powerful person in this country.

Hmmmm-All of this gets me going-Fear, Anxiety, Concern, Disappointment, and Stress come into play…

Is our country so divided that the Republicans best hope is a narrow minded, media obsessed homophobe?

I know that the most important thing about this election is that people need to exercise their right to vote, regardless of their choice… I would have liked to have remained impartial, however I am afraid that the “lipstick on a pig” comments will overshadow the issues and the fact that I believe Barack Obama is the best choice, in this election, for president…

Palin’s Desire to “save and convert the gays”-really??

According to this Associated Press story, the church of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is hosting a kind of conference devoted to the “conversion of Gays” — no kidding.

Here’s the AP text:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ? Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

You’ll be encouraged by the power of God’s love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality,” according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed since she was a child.

Palin’s conservative Christian views have energized that part of the GOP electorate, which was lukewarm to John McCain’s candidacy before he named her as his vice presidential choice. She is staunchly anti-abortion, opposing exceptions for rape and incest, and opposes gay marriage and spousal rights for gay couples.

I feel it’s necessary for me to clarify that I am not against Sarah Palin as a mother or woman.

Women have come a long way in the fight to have the choice over what we do with our bodies… And its frightening to see that a woman in 2008 would negate all of that.

Oh, and…Hint Hint Pali Pal- Don’t pose for anymore tabloid covers, you’re not a celebrity, you’re running for office to represent our, your, my COUNTRY!

And in the words of Pamela Anderson, “She can suck it”..

Lindsay- “I have faith that this country will be all that it can be with the proper guidance. I really hope that all of you make your decisions based on the facts and what feels right to you in your heart-vote for obama!”

Samantha- “I love this country- however i wasn’t born here and don’t have the right to vote- so i beg of you all to really do your research and be educated when you cast your vote this coming november…. and if you’re in doubt- vote for obama! Mainly because if she gets elected my green card probably won’t get renewed!!!”
