In an attempt to update how my site works like a week ago I apparently brought it down for 99% of the internet. Pretty much everywhere but my work. Whoops. I rule. So now it probably is back up. Some peoples might still get a 403 error but that should go away as their ISPs recache their DNS. My bad.
Those who have no idea WTF I just said, smile and nod. You’re better off, trust me.
So I know that not many people read my blog these days (taking it down for a week at a time doesn’t help), but I’ve gotta say that I’m . . . disappointed . . . in Senator McCain and his choices. No surprise there from someone so liberal they sometimes go Independent because their own party pisses them off so much. It’s just so transparent a move! And I’m even more disappointed by some of the women (and even some of the men) that I’ve overheard talking about it who REALLY should be able to see through it. People were afraid that Hilary Clinton would be elected just because she’s a woman and now all these neo-cons just can’t WAIT to vote for this MILF just because of her gender. When I try to engage in actual conversation about her, like her pro-life stance, her pro-handgun stance, her impressive two year history as governor, and of course point out things like the fact that she was pro-Alaskan oil drilling they really do just shrug and say “So? I want that. It’ll bring our prices down.”

At this point I just have to walk away. Do people not understand that things take TIME?!? And MONEY?!? And that there’s NOT ENOUGH THERE TO MAKE MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE IN THE FIRST PLACE?!?! It’s like someone saying “I want corn on the cob for dinner tonight. I’m going to go plant some corn in the back yard 10 minutes before I want to eat.” Gah. I really don’t even know what more to say. It’s so completely ridiculous that it boggles my mind.
A friend of mine at work was so refreshing in his attitude. I asked if he had read anything about her and he said “nope.” And I said “Oh yeah? Why not?” And he said “Because all I want from a President is someone who is going to get me alternative fuel for my car. I don’t want someone who talks about not relying on foreign oil or anything like that. Even the Saudis are researching alternative fuel. If THEY can see that this is a necessity then we need to, too. I figure I’ll get that question answered soon enough by the two candidates and that’s the one I’ll vote for.”
It’s nice to have just one issue to care about. Kinda considering it myself.
