Local Rebel -- True, true....I guess that's the gossipy woman in me. And, ummmm, I love a good mystery, too, I guess.
I'm almost afraid to put what I know is on the public record with regard to the current pres. When working for a certain national legal publication, I reported one of the very little publicized lawsuits in my homestate which had to do with the lottery scandal here. Need I say more. The story was kept out of the national publication and limited to local distribution (and this was supposed to be an independent media source for lawmakers, at the time)!! Geeeeez Shall I go on.....shall I tell you that while my husband worked for Haliburton in Indonesia, that his branch of the company was sold out beneath him and we were the only family in Indonesia that did not know for six months how we would get back to the U.S. because my husband's contract was sold, as well and he was not offered a renewal; and the purchaser took no responsibility for us and that this felt to be very intentional! So much for the H story.....guess who was in charge at that time?? I know that should not have any bearing on my feelings, but there is so much more, being that I'm from Houston....word gets around, yaknow?. And with the whole B family, there's that trail of business entites that the same names keep popping up in; or maybe their brothers names or father's name, and that is on the record, sharing distintion with some royalty from Saudi Arabia. I see conflict of interest written all over everything with this current administration. I don't know if he's a good man or a bad man, a smart man (with a speech problem) or a dumb man. His job is to serve us, and I see conflict of interest. And as for the C guy, well, I have no doubt he's a smart guy, and likeable, but, once again, conflict of interest. Okay.....nuf of my ranting. Whew, must be the moon.
Came back to add this: I agree...we should look at the record. But as to the man's principles....how can you really tell with any politician except to see if his actions match his words. And even that is confusing because of all of the supposed "Bush Quotes." Maybe he really does mean some of the things he's said....hehehe ...I guess I'm taking this a little too far. It's redundant to say his principles are capitalistic; yes, the buck stops with him. (pun intended) How do we know that isn't true of all politicians?
Karen & Reb -- I know that game. I stink at it. My daughter used to drive me nuts with it. But, it is true, I think....just 6.
