Something along the lines of...

"Certainly a better option than a traitor-giggolo-snob!"

When I voted for PRESIDENT Bush, I was thinking of the defense of this nation. I was thinking about the duplicity of liberal kook politicians and the way liberal politicians undermine the war effort with their un-American statements and how invested in defeat liberals are. And I was thinking of the alternative; a traitor who met with communists in France while the Vietnam was going on, a coward whose claim to fame was shooting a Vietnamese teenager in the back, and an elitist who couldn't decide from one day to the next what his position was on any given topic.

Guess what? The economy is booming. Unemployment is down to it's lowest level in a generation. The only negativity is in your mind.

If you want to inject politics onto this board, and I recommend against doing that, you need to educate yourself before you try it. Your ignorance is showing.

Well, I didn't vote for either. I wrote in "Jessica Simpson" because she has a nice, trustworthy smile...

Seriously, I think Dubya believes he is doing the right things. Much of America appears to agree. I don't happen to be one of them, but I respect our process. I had my one vote.

I was thinking of marriages being dissolved by liberal judges seated by democrats and republicans alike - liberal judges who are unraveling the definition of family.

I was thinking about electing a man who stood on principle, not on public opinion polls.

I was wishing that more of the population could see past the propoganda produced by the liberal media, and ask a soldier what it was really like to serve in Iraq - what the people of Iraq really feel about this country...

I was thinking of the pervasiveness that evil has taken root in our culture - of the shaming behavior of liberal voters who don't understand that infidelity is connected to the neutralization of moral code - by the ACLU and the liberal politicians who support that dissolution of morality.

Definitely I was thinking! What were you doing? <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/pfft.gif" alt="" />

The ? that made recovery possible: "Which lovebuster do I do the most that hurts the worst"?

The statement that signaled my personal recovery and the turning point in our marriage recovery: "I don't need to be married that badly!"

If you're interested in saving your relationship, you'll work on it when it's convenient. If you're committed, you'll accept no excuses.

So let me ask...would you vote for a man of principle even if those principles were very different from your own?

I can respect a man of principle. I do respect Dubya. I don't necessarily agree with his policies.

I am not ignorant.I am following this news very closely.

Ummmm... These things *might* be mutually exclusive! ESPECIALLY if you believe what you see in it!

But you're too smart to believe everything you see on the news, right?

One only need to turn on the news or read the paper to see that it's true.

Alas, perhaps not. <img src="/ubbt/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

Three words for ya... and you can tell me how they impact your blind faith in the news media:

Dan Rather, fax-gate

I found my wife, while she was in the deepest of her fog, to be more trustworthy than the newsmedia... But, hey, that's just me.

I voted for Bush.

I can not understand why Dems (and I am a Dem) ran with such a weak candidate, John Kerry.

he and his administration have infused a sense of deep negativity that could be affecting our marriages too

sorry octy..gotta disagree on that issue....

Clinton in my opinion damaged many many more marriages with his blatant finger waving lies...

and his redefinition of sexual encounters to exclude oral activity has brought great damage to the younger generation who really have convinced themselves that IT is not IT...

and that six years later we are still suffering the fallout of that onto this generation and marriages

OT to this discussion...

I'm 99% sure that my H is an Enneagram Type 1-like you are...

What's your thoughts about this?

I've become interested in the Enneagram stuff..

This "absurd war" started with terrorist killing 3,000 Americans. Exactly how have you forgotten that? Oh, you've bought into the idiocy Iraq wasn't supporting terrorism. Guess what? THEY WERE and now we've liberated 25 MILLION human beings from a crazy man. Are you aware they have found HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of bodies in mass graves in Iraq that Saddam had killed. (Contrast that to ZERO mass graves in Kososvo, and only 3,000 dead male muslims of military age.)

Un-American means copying Muslim terrorist propoganda and repeating it ad naseum. Un-American means doing and saying things against our nation when what you say is bull. If the shoe fits, wear it.

How curious. You criticize President Bush for misspeaking. You can't dispute him on his integrity and ideals. You are critical of the most trivial of things. You're all about show. President Bush is about substance. Doesn't your concentration on trivialites concern you in the slightest? Call 1-800-Waaaaaanh to see if anyone cares about them.

The ALLEGATIONS of wrong-doing have not been proven and will not be. The charges are being brought by liberal prosecutors. Did you know, btw, the liberal leader in the Senate, Senator Reid, is one of 3 individuals in the glare of the spotlight because of funds he took from Abrahmov? There's a criminal investigation under way targeting him and two others.

Again, your ignorance is showing. I suggest you not post until you educate yourself. You're embarrasing yourself.

By the way, I spent 26 years in uniform making sure you have the right to be ignorant. What did you do to earn that right?

O Girl:

Regarding the Enneagram..I'm a 1, 2 or 3..

I have to really think how I have answered the questions. The questions aren't easy for me to answer for some reason..

On Google..type in failure as your Search term..underneath that rather than clicking on GOOGLE SEARCH..click on I'M FEELING LUCKY...

Pep, you are probably right..Hillary will doom the Democrats since the country has turned so conservative..

However, have you guys noticed all the women presidents that have recently been elected in other countries...

The new woman President of Chile( I think it is) is surprisingly an agnostic...


I made it happen..a joyful life..filled with peace, contentment, happiness and fabulocity.
