Biden is Big dissapointment December 19, 2008

Well I guess Biden isn’t on the same animal compassionate side as Obama. But Biden BOUGHT a german shephard dog from a breeder, also not confirmed yet but there is speculation that it may have been from a puppy mill breeder which would be even worse.

Is this a “must have before you move into the white house staff” thing is to have a dog? It almost seems as a accesorie to be there, why didn’t they gets dogs before? 

Well hopefully people wont run out to buy dogs just becausethe  Bidens and Obamas did/are. I saw a article saying that now that Obamas are thinking of getting a dog that people are going to go out and get one… are you serious???!

I know not very bright people have done this in even more ridicolous situations such as 101 Dalmations and then a little while latter the shelters/pounds are filled with dalmation dogs since they aren’t the cute puppies that were in the movie anymore. Seriously, would you buy your kid a tiger because they saw Aladin? um no.. why would you buy your child a live animal just because they saw a movie. Pet sit, even foster an animal from rescue or shelter to get a feel of it, most likely your kid will not be interested any longer at the end of it and will be on the next thing.

I’m sorry if this is a bit ranty but this is a sore spot.


YAY! NO McCain-Palin!! November 5, 2008

So this was my first time voting. I never liked politics, well actually I hated them and I still do.  Last night as I stood in line for 2 hours to vote, with my feet killing me and me having to pee, by the time I actually got to a booth  I knew who I was going to vote for and who I wasn’t.

I voted for a liberal underdog, Bob Barr. The tough things was though knowing how close it’d be here in my state if I should vote for Obama-Biden since there was absolutely no way I’d vote for McCain-Palin( I knew that from the start, especially with Palin behind him). But in the end I choosed what I wanted and just hoped while watching ABC that McCain would not be winning. So YAY!

I asked PUnkyroo while I was nursing her in bed who she thought would win Obama or McCain, even thought she’s 2 I was curious to what she’d say, and what do you know…Obama!
