Fact or Fiction

I read this article yesterday and wondered what you guys thought?

Since, I'm rooting for the winning team, I don't know that I can have a valid opinion.

Do you think the negative press of John McCain is based on fact or fiction?

Please be honest in your answers. And I will not tolerate any hatred on this blog.

Our Children Can Fly

I heard this on on NPR today.

Rosa sat
Martin could walk
Martin walked
Obama could run
Obama is running
Our children can fly

I'm Tired.

Vote Early

I can't stress this enough. If you want to avoid long lines, sore feet, back pain, gallons of frustration and loss of precious time, vote early.

In Utahthere are several places for you to go. It's fast and very convenient.

Please get up, get out and make your mark.

My (dear conservative) Friends

I have a few questions for you and you have to answer the questions with factual answers. "because he said he wants to give every citizen health care" isn't a good enough answer.

1.Can you tell me why Barack Obama is a Socialist?

2. Do you realize that we already practice some forms of "redistribution of wealth" in this country?

3.Do you understand what a social democracy is? Please define it for me.

4. Why do you insist on using the word "socialist" as a pejorative? Many of our allies succesfully practice this form of government. Imagine me, as your freind, saying you are a horrible parent, your form of parenting is less superior to mine since you decided not to breastfeed, co-sleep, feed you child only organic vegetables. It would be an insult would it not?

To my liberal/progressive freinds, can you tell me how you have dealt with your conservative family/friends using this term? I'm having trouble discussing it with co-workers and could use everyones help.

Wednesday funny

It's really sad that the next V.P. of the United States is Sarah Palin.

Republicans, you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting that woman.

America, you are better than that.

For this first time in 10 years an NHL exhibition game was hosted at the E Center in West Valley. Sharks (3) vs Kings (1).

Exciting times for the Franti family.

here's the little miss at her first professional hockey game.

I haven't been to an NHL game in almost ten years. I used to see the Ducks play in Anaheim when I was a lass but at the time I didn't really know what was going on; I just liked the speed of the game. Then I met NF who was skating backwards when some of us were still riding "Incredible Hulk" big wheels. Many years later, I know how the game is played, I know the players, their numbers, their positions, their past teams and all sorts of stupid, utterly meaningless to my existence, facts about them. (I still have a major crush the retired Steve Yzerman.) Don't ask me how I retain all that gibberish either....I just do.

Unlike football or baseball or basketball where it's all about the star player, hockey is a genuine team sport that is played with incredible speed, intelligence, precision, and if your lucky, hard hits. Watching those men do what they do on a little pair of skates is damn impressive too. If you don't agree, spend an hour watching NF skate and see if you're not a little bit impressed at the skill it takes to maneuver on ice.

I only have a few regrets in life and one is not putting the kid in a pair of skates when she was teeny little grommet. ( then I would have actually have something in common with Sarah Palin other than brown hair and glasses) It would have been my college savings plan 'cause I'm sure those mid-west universities could use more female players. But alas, the child doesn't like to move beyond the top shelf of the refrigerator. Fortunately, she doesn't mind watching the a game with the family and asking good questions about the rules.

Almost makes me look forward to little grand-grommits.
