Obama Sneaking in his ‘Disarmament’ Agenda

Watch out my fellow Americans. Obama is gradually getting to his own agenda of ‘disarming’ the United States. If you haven’t seen this video that Obama tells us in his own words, his plans for our military before his election, watch it now. It’s a little late to take any action on this. I watched the video before the election so therefore, Obama did not get my vote.

Here is the link to todays story Obama Scraps Bush’s… Defense Plan from the Associated Press.

Kanye West: Lashing Out…again!

Ok, all the blogs are talking about the same thing today. How could you not? My opinion is Kanye West has not been right since his mother died. They were very close and I believe the alcohol, or drugs or whatever is is doing to hide from the pain is not working.

Anyway, for those of you who do not know what I am talking about, (What planet are you from?)…

Click here to watch Kanye’s outburst.

So, the dude is crazy, whacked out, etc. Whatever you want to call it. I felt sorry for Taylor Swift but WOW! What a classy gal. She handled it beautifully.

Kanye’s blog had an apology but again, the ‘Mother’ reference, “Kanye posted an apology to Taylor on his website, KanyeUniversecity.com. “I’M SOOOOO SORRY TO TAYLOR SWIFT AND HER FANS AND HER MOM,” Kanye wrote on his site, AP reported. “I SPOKE TO HER MOTHER RIGHT AFTER AND SHE SAID THE SAME THING MY MOTHER WOULD’VE SAID. SHE IS VERY TALENTED!”

So, Kanye did not get thrown out or arrested, like any other person that would crash the stage would have been. I’m sure if his Mother were here it would be breaking her heart to see her son acting that way. I’m sure she raised him better than that.

Here is the video that Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video for “You Belong With Me.”

A Very Cool May and Congrats to the Graduates!!

Have you noticed how cool the weather has been this May? I don’t know about you but it seems kind of odd to wake up on May 16th and it’s only 38 degrees outside. We will have to see what June has in store for us. An older women that I met at our local Antique Mall mentioned that this is the first time she can remember wearing a coat to a graduation ceremony.

Also, congratulations to all the 2009 Graduates! It is an exciting and challenging time to be graduating.  I’m sure all of them will be up for the challenge and will come out on the other side of this stonger and better prepared for the future.

A special congratulations to the Kansas University Graduates!  Rock Chalk Jayhawks!!

My son graduating earlier this year!

Just a quick note…about my daughter’s wedding

Just a quick note…

I can’t wait to go wedding dress shopping with my darling daughter on Saturday. It’s supposed to snow and I have had enough of Winter. I want Spring. Now, back to the DRESS! She is leaning toward a short dress instead of a long one. At first I was having a hard time with it but, it is her wedding, not mine and I want her to be comfortable and happy. The wedding is August 1st so it will be hot, so for practical reasons, I can understand why a short wedding dress would be cooler. The dress is not like a mini skirt or anything, it is just below the knees and made out of organza with ribbon trim and is kind of flippy. Very cute. She is having 6 attendents and it will be in a church. Her colors are red and black and the bridesmaids dresses will be short as well. She thinks it will be cool to have really cute shoes, (she is a shoe-a-holic) so that will be fun.

So…what do you think? Have you been to a wedding where the bride wore a short dress or have you ever heard of a wedding where the bride wore a short dress? This is her first marriage and she is 22 years old. Can you tell I’m having a little bit of a hard time with this??? Oh well, what will be, will be, Que sara, sara! 🙂
I would appreciate your comments! Thanks so much.

Tonight’s the Night: American Idol Season 8

American Idol Season 8 kicks off tonight on Fox at 7 pm CST.

A new judge will be introduced, Kara DioGuardi. The old panel will be there as well as the newbie. Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson are ready to rate the ‘talent’, I use the word loosely. I hope this season has some real talent, like back in the day of Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, and others. There wasn’t that much competition in Season 7. I hope Paula can keep her act together and not forget what is going on.

Tonight will tell the tale of the new judge Kara. I hope she isn’t a ‘positive people pleaser’. A little honesty, kind of like Randy and Simon judge the contestants. Well, we’ll see how it goes.

Sarah Palin and Tina Fey SNL Skit; Not Fair to Women

“I think it’s really sad that in America, just because a woman is running for a high office, we have to make fun of her on Saturday Night Live. There is a black person on SNL, why aren’t they making fun of Obama? Because he is black, that’s why. It makes me so mad.” This is a quote from a 21 year old female college student who happens to be my daughter. Wow! Now that is an opinion!

It happens to be an opinion I agree with as a 51 year old woman. What the heck is going on here? Why is this okay?? I have to admit that Tina Fey is pretty funny doing the Sarah Palin Impressions but why isn’t anyone impersonating Obama? Now I think that would be hillarious!!

I don’t watch SNL but I did see replays on the news, (even that is pathetic). Now whenever I see Sarah Palin speak, I can’t help but think of Tina Fey, who has all the mannerisms down pat, and then I start to laugh and even I have a hard time  taking Mrs. Palin seriously. I have to agree with my daughter, not only is it sad, but it does make me mad. And it should make every mother in America mad. How will our daughters ever be taken seriously if we just write off every woman trying to make a change in this country as a bimbo? I can only hope next time there’s a serious female candidate running for a high office, we can get beyond the sexism and look at content of character. Why is it so many people have gotten past the racism with Obama, but can’t get past the sexism with Palin?

I understand that she is green. She does not have the experience she needs to answer the tough questions being thrown at her by the press. I’d like to have seen them ‘hounding’ Obama in the begining or even now. Oh, that’s right. They can’t because then it would be ‘racist.’

Okay, the game is over. It is time for us to get serious about who is going to be running this country for the next four years.
