So Much to Say…

With the start of the war against Iraq, I have so much that I want to say, but it all keeps coming out in jumbled thoughts. Maybe if I make a list:

:: I support our troops. They and their families left behind are in my thoughts and prayers. I am sad to see us at war.

:: They sounded surprised on the news tonight when they got word that we lost a Marine helicoptor. This is a WAR. That is what happens. It annoys me that they acted like it wouldn’t. I hate seeing lives lost like this.

:: In the past, when we wanted to liberate a country and take a leader out, we just went in and did it. In, out, done and over. Why on earth did we give Saddam all these warnings if that is what we really want to do? Why the final 48 hour warning? Why not just do it? I know why we did it, but it still annoys me. If we “end” this war without taking Saddam out of power, that will annoy me even more.

:: When in Texas, don’t say anything negative about Bush. In these parts, he could be sleeping with Monica Lewinski and people would still defend him much more than he deserves. Just a bit overly zealous.

:: Solonor said it best the other day when he this. I think I agreed with every single point. “We are attacking a country, ignoring the will of the people, in order to get rid of a dictator that ignores the will of his people.”

:: Anything that Solonor didn’t cover, George hit pretty well in his latest post. I’m annoyed that we have been Species-Jacked.

:: Robyn posted the perfect quote. “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.” – President Theodore Roosevelt. Standing up and questioning government is the very foundation of our country. Pay attention. It’s your job as a citizen.

:: My throat hurts. It’s adding to my somewhat grumpy mood. My glands hurt on the side of my neck. And I don’t have insurance until April 1.

:: I loved Houston today. It was absolutely gorgeous outside and the temperature was perfect. We might be lucky and have a few more weeks of this perfect weather before the heat settles in. I won’t like Houston then.

:: Work is going really well. I enjoy digging deeper in to the cases – and I received unexpected praise today, which is always a nice thing.

:: I’ve lost 9.2 pounds so far with more to go – I’m giving up weight for Lent. I owe it to Weight Watchers and journaling what I eat.

:: Thank you to the many people that have upgraded their RSS feeds this week. It makes my life sooooo much easier to read through Newzcrawler.

:: I’m considering watching HGTV and TechTV non-stop for the next few weeks. Network television will drive me mad. How many times can they say the same thing over and over?

There you have it – all of my random rambling thoughts…

i love your list…and you summed so many things up, so well.

the weather HAS been simply gorgeous, i’d pay higher taxes for this year round.

i’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying your new job, and congrats on the weight loss, what an amazing feeling!

i will be upgrading my rss this weekend…I PROMISE (yes, i told Jennifer, too!)

and i always just watch HGTV and Techtv non-stop…

hey, you forgot…it’s FRIDAY! happy, happy!

yep! thank God it’s Friday! i’m so happy for Friday! my work week has been pure hell. and the weather outside has been very good to us. it’s a little nippy at nights, but i like snuggling up in my comforter.

have a great day and hope to see you tomorrow! Jen/J-mo should come out, too! 🙂

I just wish I hadn’t cleared so many shows off of my Tivo last week! I guess I need to spend some time on Saturday finding more shows to record so I have more options on the Tivo!

Jen, I almost added “It’s Friday!” to my list, but I’m enjoying work so much right now it just didn’t seem right! 😉

When they start putting in special reports over at UPN and WB … that’s when I start to get irritated. Hope the sore throat goes away and glad you’re enjoying the job.

This country has always been a democracy where the majority rules. The majority of the votes get you elected. Today, 76% of American’s are behind the war. I would say that the will of the people here is being heard and done. Why do people always say the “will of the people” is ignored when it is their opinion that didn’t win?

Bush didn’t get elected by the majority of votes, he got in by the majority of Electoral College votes and even that is still questioned. He lost the popular vote though. And polls a few weeks ago showed that the majority of the people were NOT for war. Of course sentiments change. When it comes to polls, you can play the numbers a variety of ways and it all depends on how you ask the questions. If you ask me if I support the troops – yes, I do. If you ask me if I support the war, I’m on the fence. If we actually take Saddam out this time, great. But I’m still annoyed that we didn’t do it 12 years ago.

Shock & Awe Blah
… is underway. I’ve heard too many people commenting on how it’s finally getting good and how the war thus far has been boring as if it’s some network tv show we’re evaluating. It makes me sick to think people…
