Zeal To Be Your Leader Makes Life Miserable

I mean- you can't look at or listen to damn near ANYTHING for all the political ads.

The budget these politicians raise to get elected to get their hands on MORE money (and power) is unreal.

It's all over television and radio- in newspapers- even the public "opinion" page. You can't even answer your phone- unless you have caller ID for all the political robo-calls.

It sucks and Americans just keep voting the same 2 parties in with the same results time after time.

I say restrict any and all political ads on electronic media to the week before the election. Citizens also SHOULD be able to opt out of idiotic robo-calls on their PRIVATE phone lines too.

The bottom line is: there is just TOO much money spent in these political campaigns and simple sheep-bleating won't stop it.

Where Is Meredith Hoenes

Since Ms. Hoenes disappeared from FAUX4 we've been wondering what has become of her.

We caught up with a post on a TV Jobs site signed by her name and dropped the poster a line asking (kindly) to update us on her job search.

No response after 2 weeks now- maybe Meredith's finally moved on.

Just another bio to add to the memory lane-revolving door of Kansas City TV talking heads.

Gasoline Prices Continue To Fall

With prices as low as $2.15 per gallon in Independence-MO (click on image for full size)- one has to wonder if maybe- just maybe- gas won't go BELOW $2 a gallon.

It's sure to make it easier to get to the soup kitchen or the bread lines.

Obama Making "History"- McCain Making McBush Clone-ness

Even though I intend to vote 3rd party in November- there are some pretty glaring differences how the Demoblican & Republicrat candidates are stumping for votes.

One of the candidates has rallies in open and public areas- usually open to anybody who wants to drop by and watch.

The other tends to restrict his appearances to mostly conservative venues where the only access is by ticket.

One candidate is making history as the first black major-party presidential candidate.

The other candidate is serving the status quo of the Destruction of America by the current Republicrat administration.

Barack Obama drew nearly 200000 citizens to Saturday rallies in St. Louis and Kansas City.

John McCain did well to draw 10000 to a couple of his rallies on the East Coast.

I still intend to vote for a 3rd party candidate. But I won't be angry at all if the open- historic candidate wins the presidency.
