Doesn’t Barack Obama know that Joe Biden is a big mouthed phony?  Can’t he see that Biden is quite full of himself?  That’s not a good quality in a leader.  Both have some time to go in this final stretch of the way too long race to The White House.  There’s a lot of crap out there regarding Mr. Biden, which I’m sure will start flinging full speed on Monday.

For the record, I’m not an Obama fan, but thought he had a better chance without Biden — In other words, I don’t know enough about Obama to become an immediate cheerleader like much of the media.  It doesn’t make sense.  I don’t have anything against him, but I’m not falling for his well delivered speeches.  That’s just fluff.

My vote will most likely be for John McCain, since Mitt Romney dropped out way too soon, or I may vote for Bob Barr — I’m not completely sure.  I want real change, not just the promise of it.  We hear the same promise each race, but don’t see it from the two over-emphasized parties.  It’s just a tug of war.  And once again we’re forced to pick the best of the worst.

Back to the heading — I do think Obama blew his chance to become President by picking Joe Biden.  I thought he was a little smarter than that.  It’s almost comical — Joe Biden is not change, he’s status quo. 

I hear that Delaware residents are happy that Biden got picked to be Obama’s running mate, since it will get him out of their state.  If that’s the popular consensus in Delaware, it’s not a good sign for the rest of the country.

POST ELECTION UPDATE:  Barack Obama won the Presidential Election, but I don’t think Joe Biden helped any — Yet perhaps he might have swayed those who never heard of him.  He was on his best behavior with his big perma-smile.  Now that he’s going to be our Vice President, I hope he does the right thing.  And let’s see this CHANGE they talked about.

How are Leaf Blowers allowed to exist?  They obviously pollute and annoy.  Just walk by one to breathe in the gas fumes and the debris being BLOWN into the air.  Why do its operators wear masks if it’s okay for the rest of us?  I usually see the debris being blown from one property to another — From the paying neighbor’s yard out onto the public streets, or onto another neighbor’s car or yard.  Why can’t the debris be swept and picked up like it used to be?  It’s relatively not that strenuous of a job.

Leaf Blowers are a nuisance and should be completely banned.  How do they exist in such a hypersensitive environmental culture?  Is it politics?  The race card?  I really hope not.  I’m sorry all Gardeners, Leaf Blowers aren’t good for the overall public, especially how I see them being used.

Yesterday’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Decision to uphold the Ramos and Compean convictions is just not right.  Law Enforcement should not be punished for trying to do an honest job.  They put their lives at risk and are required to make important split-second decisions on a daily basis.  It’s a lot of responsibility without proportionate support.  And since we’re only human here, we might not always do what’s best — But does it really make sense to send these two to prison for (10) years?  The answer is definitely NO.
 
What’s the real story here?  Who is being protected?  It’s certainly not American citizens.  We need to allow Law Enforcement to protect all those living here and simply enforce the laws.  It appears that enforcing laws has become an arbitrary or politically motivated practice.  They’re selectively being applied when there’s something to be gained by a certain party or lobbying group, not for the benefit of the American population as a whole. 
 
Why are we seeing so many gray areas in Law Enforcement?  The law is the law.  Either something is illegal, or it’s not.  We need to allow those who choose a Law Enforcement career to do their job, without the fear of unfair prosecution or political scrutiny — Otherwise, who is going to want the position?  I certainly wouldn’t.
 
The decision to prosecute Ramos and Compean, the withholding of important information during trial, and the upholding of these bad decisions effect all our safety, but most specifically here – The Ramos and Compean families who are unjustly hurting tremendously.  Why are we protecting the Mexican drug cartel?  Come on now.  We need to speak out or we’re just going to lose more — I’m happy that KFI cares.
