What is the GOP solution to balancing the budget? End education, take away seniors income and give it to CEOs,take food and shelter away from the poor; give the power back to the CEOs instead of doctors to decide who should live and who should die, more deregulation, and outsourcing of jobs. And the rich live happily ever after.
So far us Californians are not buying the teaparty's offer. We are still reeling from the Terminator's policies that have stripped our education system down to a skeleton. However, states like Nevada, Alaska, Florida, wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky, and a few more states seem to be in favor of the GOP teaparty candidates whether they are qualified or not.
According to the polls the GOP party will be taking back control of the House and Senate. And those who stand to suffer the most from their policies love it! Either the people are having a bit of "Bush years" notalgia and missing the days of corruption in mortgage and lending, banking business, and big corporation trickled up economics or they are bewitched. If it is the latter, praying folks better pray harder that the people snap out of it before November 2.
Although there is another explanation for the polls showing favorable ratings for the GOP party I've noticed going on this midterm election season. Democrats haven't been getting any telephone calls from the polling people. Usually about this time, my telephone would be ringing off the hook. However, my phone hasn't rung once for this midterm election. Strange thing is that most people I've asked say they've been experiencing the same thing and tell me that they haven't been getting any either. Only the Republicans have.
Depression could be another explanation. It is an emotion that will sometimes affect people's thinking and have them not thinking at all. Due to the mortgage and job crises it is understandable and perceivable that the majority of Americans are depressed and not being rational right now. I mean no one would hurt their own-self unless they have some type of mental disorder.
And face it with all the stress people are going through right now there are plenty of mental disorders spreading around right about now. That's the only rational way to explain people voting for people like this and this and this and this.
On November 2, I plan to make sure that my vote is counted win or lose because it is not over until the "Fat Lady Sings."

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
