Chit Chat Thread for the week of November 03, 2008

 

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

You mean before we vote, it's going to be interesting how long it takes to figure it all out after the law suites and such that will be filed because of corruption allegations before hand. http://tinyurl.com/5nof2u

Ohio being a State with a partisan secretary of state doesn't make it any easier,this just causes the lawyers to descend like vermin on polling places looking for corruption.

Ohio is one of the biggest prizes because its a very important state to carry in the election. It seems that no candidate can win the election without the state of Ohio, it’s only been done once since 1856 (by Kennedy) and it has never been done by a Republican.

Good luck to all eight Candidates!, and thank goodness it's all over except for our vote to see who would have won a popularity contest, then or course the Counting of the Electoral Votes to see who the next President is.

God Bless America
it doesn't matter who for, Just Vote!

Child Abuse

Cleveland, OH (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of a Cleveland courtroom drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.
The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he admittedly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Cleveland Browns, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

Get away from it all !

After all the months of political BS, we have decided to get away tomorrow after voting to a B&B in a Historical town about 100 miles away for a couple of nights. We requested and reserved a room WITHOUT a TV to avoid all the election return nonsense. Once we've voted it's out of our hands so we'll just find out who won on Wednesday !
This will be the 13th Presidential Election I will have voted in - I guess I'm just tired of all the rhetoric !
But, the important thing is "VOTE"

re: Polls

I guess we're lucky here in a rural area. We only waited about 15 minutes to vote. However, I took the only machine which was free at the time, in which you inputted your vote electronically, and it printed up the ballot. When I put the ballot in the machine, it just took it in and still said "Put Ballot in Machine". They had to call the county clerk to open the machine and it took awhile. Oh well I did my duty and made it home.

Go out and vote everybody!

Voted - Now Free Food!

Don't forget everyone - after you vote, proceed to your Krispy Kreme, Ben & Jerry's, and, or Starbucks.

Free Donut, scoop of ice cream, and large coffee, respectively.

My polling place usually has less than a dozen when I get there by 6 AM. Today, I was number 4 in line at 5:30, and at least 75 people when the door opened. When I left a few minutes later, I would guess there to have been at least a hundred and twenty five voters.

So - keeping it related, load up the POI for the stops of your choice. grin

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

Looking from the ouside in

Happy voting day to all you Americans from your cousins up north in Canada.

One thing that struck me in the last couple of weeks was the amount of air play CNN give to Obama. Every time I turned to CNN they were going live to a speech Obama was making and stayed with him until it was completed. In contrast, they only played sound bites from McCain and then poor one's at that.

I lost some respect for the "most trusted name in news" as a result. I have long thought they presented a fair balance in news reporting, but then are elections not news?

Cheers, may the best man win.

Went to the polling place

I stopped by at about 8:30 a.m., there were moderately long lines... Rather than make people who have to get to work wait for me, I decided to return in a couple of hours. Lots of things to vote for besides the presidency so be sure to get out and vote.... grin

Political Ads

I spent the weekend visiting my son in Virginia. I couldn't believe all of the political ads on tv there. Made me glad that Texas is not a battleground state.

And they seemed to time their ads so that if a candidate had an ad, blasting his/her opponent, the opponent had an ad right after that saying that the first person was saying lies.

Can't wait til its all over, but lawsuits are already starting, so who knows when it will end.

Just returned after an hour and 45 minute wait in line to vote!!! @#!$?%!

7am to 8pm here

Will vote before it is closed at 8pm. Hope by voting late, I would not be the citizen making the long line longer.

Did my duty

...and now we have a new president!

Not exactly a landslide as in FDR's first election, but it's a keeper. The ads will stop, but heaven help us all, the real work is just beginning.

Rally 'round the flag, boys....

Glad election is over

Here in the Phoenix metro area the political ads have been hot and heavy. Not necessarily ads for the presidential campaign but definitely for Congress and the state held propositions.

I never thought I would see the day when car ads on TV would look good to me, but it certainly has come to that. Although the first few ads on Election night have been Christmas ads by Walmart. I guess November 4th isn't rushing that season as much as Christmas trees on display in retail stores before Halloween were!

Darn

Does this mean I don't get to see Sarah Palin anymore? sad

I doubt this is the end of Sarah Palin on the National Scene. She will probibly be on another National ticket in the years to come given her age. Think of how many times Biden or John Edwards have run. This time Biden gets in as VP, but both Biden and Edwards have been in the Presidential Primaries several times. I suspect Sarah Palin will be as well in the years to come.

Now if she is electable or not I leave for further debate on other channels at other times.

Plenty more !

Oh you haven't seen the end of Sara Palin! Your going to see plenty of her for years to come.

Our new President Elect

I wish to take this time to congratulate Barack Obama the 44th President Elect of The United States of America.

May God Bless our new President in January and may God Bless the United States of America.

Electoral votes:
Obama - 349 McCain - 147

The 22 month presidential campaign is way to long, it should be no more that 6 - 9 months. especially if a incumbent is running, it takes away from the operation of daily business of the president.

I hope President Obama can bring about the change that he promised.

Can you say "gouging..."

Drove to Buffalo yesterday. Stopped on the Thruway to fill up. Big mistake. #3.19 a gallon for regular. $2.89 per gallon once I got off the Thruway. Back here in Cleveland, a gallon of regular is $1.99. Now 20 or 30 cents difference is one thing, but $1.20 a gallon difference!! That's highway, make that Thruway robbery. mad

Garmin 765T...Is it about the destination, or is it about the journey?

Change??

Hi, everyone,

If you'll recall, some two years ago, control of our Congress was taken over by the Dems. They "promised" change also. After two plus years, they've accomplished virtually nothing, and their approval rating is lower than ever. If our new President needs their help to accomplish his goals, I fear he's in big trouble before he ever gets started. I, like a lot of people, want to see some changes for the better, but our new President won't be able to do it by himself.
