Feeling proud of your home is a good thing. We should do that. We should celebrate all the things that are good about our culture, and those who make sacrifices for it. I am an American, and I am proud of a great deal of American history. I am an Oklahoman, and I am proud to be from a state that had to work hard to become a livable home. I also acknowledge that neither of those organizations I belong to is perfect, and much of that imperfection is self-inflicted damage.
Hypocrisy is a forgivable sin in politics. Should it be?
Every time the last president played golf, we heard fake outrage from the same people who remain silent at the current president’s 13th time in his first 60 days, without question the defining days of a presidency and its legacy.
At this point it’s more probable that Donald Trump is either going to win the national election, or the tie will go to the House of Representatives to pick the winner, which most likely would be a Trump win as well.
The House and Senate both appear to be a safe keep for the Republican Party also tonight.
As of midnight EST, I am showing Kerry at 188 Electoral Votes and Bush at 237 Votes. If they both win their projected states (and none of the states have turned yet) This will bring the total to Kerry 266, Bush 271. One vote over the 270 required to win. It all depends on Ohio right now.
If Kerry wins in Ohio, (still at 70%) then the Electoral vote will go Bush 251 / Kerry 286. Right now Bush is ahead in Ohio by a small lead. You could probably crack a diamond with the ass tension in both party headquarters right now.
