Who Did You Vote For And Why?

I am one of those evil Americans that didn’t vote yesterday. I had to work and sleep. Before you chastise me, I would be voting in a state where my vote would have been heavily overrun by many others. I know that isn’t an excuse but – frankly, if I had the option, I wouldn’t have voted for either anyway.

There are a few pros and some glaring cons to both sides so, to me, it was more of a “Which is the lesser evil?” situation.

That said, this one is for you!

Who did you vote for (or who would you have voted for, if you didn’t)?

To make this interesting, think of the biggest reason why you voted (or would’ve) for this candidate and sum it up in one word that you feel best explains your reasoning.

For example, if you were voting for Obama, you might have been interested in spreading the wealth. So you might say “sharing” as a word that would represent that. If you wanted Romney, maybe you were interested in changes promised by his Christian-themed morals, so you might say “morality”.

So, who was it?

The Things You Can’t Blog About, Even If You Want To

Google may keep your information for months, do you want that all over the web?

Google could keep past information for months.

I got into a hearty discussion today about some topics that shouldn’t be mentioned in a public blog.

At least, not one in which the author can be identified.

It got me to thinking about the lack of privacy on the web. You can do anything you want online, sure. But the moment you attach some sort of identifying information to it, you may as well throw your privacy to the wind.

Actually, the minute you post something online, just forget about any privacy.

Democrats Want to Conduct an Investigation…

These silly Democrats want to conduct a Weiner investigation…

The fact that this photo shows 2 women is even better.

I actually saw this on CNN yesterday while watching TV and had to stop and snap a photo of the headline.

Jay Leno, would you be interested??

Democrats want to investigate Republican Senator Anthony Weiner for reports of a sex scandal by sending raunchy photos of himself to women he met online. Senator Weiner allegedly sent photos of himself shirtless and even of his erection through his underwear. Some have even nicknamed the scandal Weinergate.

And just whose weiner do they want to investigate?

CNN – Next time you might want to think twice about how you word your headlines. Unless someone meant to be funny…

Osama Bin Laden Killed America

Osama Bin Laden is the ultimate “suicide bomber”. At the expense of his life, he pretty much “killed” America as intended.

We call ours a success but what have we actually gained from his death? A perceived sense of security? An ever-expanding national debt?

The suicide bombers will not simply shrivel up and die if they remain passionate about the cause (which is likely given that they claim religious reasoning).
