This Shilly-Shallying is Absurd!

I interrupted my evening of revisiting my lines from "The Important of Being Ernest" to watch the third Presidential debate. Even though I won't be voting (because I’m dead) I do like to keep up with these things. The Senator from Illinois' name is Barack Obama and his wife's name is Michelle Obama. If you don't know, even at this stage, it's better to ask than remain ignorant.

Senator Obama, Senator McCain, Lily Ledbetter - THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT WAS NEVER PASSED IN THE UNITED STATES.

I wonder where they got those lovely water glasses?

Troops to Teachers - Just because it employs triple alliteration doesn't make it a good idea. (PTSD + children? See where I'm going with this?) I do want to add that even though Senator McCain said "with no evaluations or certification" - the Ed.gov site does work to get the soldier’s certificate, qualifications and licenses - which makes me feel a little better.)

I learned a new phrase "The Great Society." (I am not originally from this country.)

At least no one talked about cutting funds to the Arts when talking about trimming corners.

The only Joe I want any follow up on is Senator Joe Biden.

47 MILLION AMERICANS ARE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE.

THE UNITED STATES SPENDS MORE MONEY PER CAPITA ON EDUCATION THAN ANY OTHER NATION.

My favorite quote:

Senator Obama - "I don't think America's youth is a special interest group."

Well the kettle is boiling, so I must be off. I think a nice oolong ought to pick me up.

As always,

P.S. Please excuse my previous blog where I misspelled traveled as traveled. Thank you.
