In the news: Romney has suspended his campaign. This is a surprise to me. As far as what's going to happen now, who knows. It looks like McCain will take the nomination and maybe take Huck on as a VP. Still not voting for him. I wish Rush would run but he says he can't take the pay cut.

I'm awfully boring today. I've tried to blog on a couple of topics, and it's like, zzzzzzzz.....

Uh, how about this.... assuming that Valentine's Day is a woman's holiday. (I know not everyone assumes that, but enough do) So, making that assumption, what would be a good holiday for guys? SuperBowl maybe...


  1. so, if the rep ticket goes McCain/Huckabee
    and the dem ticket goes Obama/?

    and you don't vote for the rep
    then you're giving your vote to the dems

    what gives?

    you're just gonna throw your right to vote out the window

    that's not smart

    if most conservatives think like that then it's a sure thing the liberal dems will take over

    think about it


    be smart

  2. it's as if you're saying

    "if I cannot have my way, then I won't play - hrmph"

    then stomp off to your room & slam the door

    you gotta fight

  3. anonymous are you being a chicken? a hen perhaps? I understand my sisters position. Not a mater of intellegence but principal. What if enough people did not vote because of the lack of a conservitive canidate? Maybe next time.. maybe the next 50 years or so they wont try that again and make sure we get a social conservitve canidate eh? Big picture...? Hopefully lou would say something about it.. and give the all clear.... or not.. it would be good to hear from the Fathers... and the Father ourselves... I personally believe (so far) because of Huck as a VP and McCain at least consistant on abortion.. I would vote for them. Better than extreeme liberals yes... for now. ??? peace - Rob

  4. oh my dear rob

    not chicken

    not hen

    just wondering

    what if all had that attitude

    not picking on jess

    not at all

    this is a not so good election year

    no really good candidate

    especially for the reps

    it is very very sad indeed

    i think it would be a mistake to
    not vote

    i don't care much for mccain

    but i won't throw my vote away to the dems

    would you

    no i don't think you would

    we gotta fight with our votes

    maybe the FATHER will enlighten mccain - open his eyes

    lets pray so

  5. It is principle. I have made a VOW. I won't break that.

  6. But it sounds like a lot of conservatives are saying similar things... mccain is pretty liberal, not sure how much difference there would be between him and the democratic candidates

  7. What Would Rush Do/Say?

    What Would Hannity Do/Say????

  8. here's the thing. it really bugs me to be called dumb, or not smart. For one thing, I AM. And also. I am thinking about this. I am not swallowing the party line. Shoot, I'm not even doing what Rush says.

    I am reasoning, and basing my decisions on my values and my principles. and that's DUMB??

  9. oh anonymous... you have no idea how much we have in common.... I love to pick on jess.. it is one of my favorite past times... in fact, i rarely say anything true when she is around.. just for kicks...ya know... but she IS my sister and I will always stick up for her if someone else dare and try to participate in my fun... :) ok now that were friends.... not a hen eh? so not an older (mature) house mom then... hmm...

    in other news.. Romney is out... I wander if Huck will keep going or Jump on the McCain ticket... Im sure we will know soon....

  10. just listend to Hannity.. on the way home.. It sounds like he is trying to beef up McCain.. can tell if he is joking or not. Go to 740am . com or google listen now or something.. peace :) I am going to check it out now.. here it is.. :)

  11. Jess- I wasn't calling YOU dumb yesterday, just saying that, to me, not voting at all is dumb. You are an intelligent person, I don't think YOU are dumb, I just think not voting is dumb.

    I understand you took a vow, so you have to decide what is right for you to do. I respect your contemplation and thinking on the issue. You have to do what you think is right based on how important that vow is to you.

  12. Romney is out because the man has spent a handsome $40 million of his own money on this campaign and he would have a long road to catch McCain. Romney was spending $900,000 per day in adverts and commercials the week before New Hampshire primary.

  13. Just remember folks, we get what we deserve, or at least, that is what it states (paraphrasing) in the Bible. In some ways, this is unnerving, but then, again, you have to trust God. With whom else can we put our trust? Certainly not our government or any other government. I wonder what the founding fathers of our nation would say right now?

    Our nation is so very sick; sick right to the core (heart).

    Can a nation be changed in one day?

  14. i know that McCain is really a democrat. but what did he say/think or whatever that is so bad a conservative would vote for OBAMA!?

    someone please fill me in.

    why the vow?

  15. the vow I made is to never vote for a candidate that is not pro-life. Bound4life
    and rush and ann and hannity all have major problems with his politics, I could get around that if he did not support embryonic stem cell research.

  16. what if obamarama is elected
    what if he wants to be sworn in on koran not bible
    what if he chooses not to salute american flag
    what if he chooses not to say pledge of allegience
    what if he wants to give american rights away to illegals
    what is he is a pansy to terrorists
    what if......

    god is in control

  17. anoms have strong political opinions...
    who says USA is sick? take it back and let's be patriotic!
    stand up for our country and our leaders

  18. anonyms are cowards...

  19. Jess I definately agree that you are not dumb. And I for one have not made my decision what to do.

    My sisters idea is to vote for everything but President. She says if it ends up McCain and Obama we are going to get a liberal either way so what difference does it make. And if enough people did that maybe it would speak to the Republican party about what we stand for.

    But I will pray and let God tell me what to do.

    Jess I think you are very brave. I know how much you love politics, and that you want to make your vote count. But to put all that aside for your vow is awesome. Do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

    Has everyone forgotten what a vow to God means! That is her personal promise and to say she should break that just to vote I think is wrong. God honors his vows to us. And if God wants Jess to vote he will release her from her vow and she will know that she has been released. But until then I say girl, stick to your guns and don't let them bully you!

  20. ...sneakily drove past our house, ... then parked down the street, then crept back.... (i could see him out the kitchen window...but he didn't know i was watching...) and he...

  21. Mamapc you are starting to sound like Ratking. What are you talking about? I thought we were going to keep this light? or was that just for Brynn? This is getting heated. I think I want to stay out of the kitchen. No opinion whatsoever on politics. None at all. That should make me the most unpopular person on the blog. UMMMM maybe Batboy is less popular not sure.

  22. Ratking for Loser '08

  24. Anons are chickens! Stand up and state your name you yellow-bellied roosters.-G

  25. Why I despise the comments I am getting here. I resent the fact that I am totally unrepresented legally in any fashion at all. Jess, defend me, tell them I am not a hopeless, helpless little rat hiding in the Netherlands, afraid of any thing shorter than the pope.-Ratking

  26. Batboy

    I put an ad out in the paper for you. They want to buy you in Hong Kong. Go!, get a life.-Ratking

  27. This Ratking fellow bothers me. I don't know what or who he is, but I wish he would show his face.

    And as for Batboy or butt, or whatever they call him, Didn't he have the illegitimate child of Rev Jesse Jackson? Or is he that child? Or did he see Elvis, or is he living in a bunker in Chile with Hitler? Or doesn't he know where Suddam Hussein is REALLY hiding? Or is he the daughter or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes?-G

  28. Batboy Cruise.... It has a ring to it-Batboy

  29. Rat King for Paranoid Schizophrenic, with Rat King for Vice Paranoid Schizophrenic '08!

  34. Nice stuff, Richy.-G

  35. Woooo

    A vow is a vow........

    I do not know what to do or how to vote at this point.....but I strongly agree you can never ever break a vow.......

    I am proud of you Jess......

  36. You will never FIND me. Ratking

  37. Jessica Loves ME! Ratking

  38. I am getting so tired of these Rat and Bats. I think we should shoot them both.-G

  39. I am just innocently campaigning here, bothering no one

  40. I will always be able to find you, RK... I just follow the ODOR

  41. Yeah, the odor of burning fur, thanks to certain rodents.-Ratking

  42. Can we just get on with blogging? Do we have to put up with these awful representations of fictional sickness? I mean one candidate is as good as the other when they are both so close to the ends of their own party lines.

    Ratking can write and has some self eradicating habits
    Batboy is a loyal drug pushing sadist

    The voting should be evenly twisted. I think.-G

  43. Hey, "G"... you have a way with words. you ever done campaign management? Gimme a ringy-ding

  44. Campaigning! What? now we have the entire blog voting?!!! What have you done to me this time? I don't want to campaign!

    I want to throw you off a bridge
    I want to hit you with a fridge
    I want to make sure you are indig(inate)

    I want you incarcerated, erasibated,
    Clinically terminated, permanently refrigerated.


  45. a ringy ding? LOL -G

  46. I must go to bed. Mike is about through watching Antwone Fisher. I am tired. Let the battle continue through the night.

    May the best rodent win-G

  47. She thinks she is soooo smart-Ratking

  48. The Netherlands is not that far...


  49. thanks, Jess!

    I forgot about the stem cell research. That's pretty important. I forget that not everyone's definition of "pro-life" is necessarily the same.

    i'm very interested in your opinion.

    go here:

    that's what mccain says he believes about stemcell research.
    it's under the section, "Addressing the Moral Concerns of Advanced Technology."

  50. this is his voting history... he's been saying differently lately

  51. how does one tell one anon from another

  52. MINNEAPOLIS -- A man was sentenced Wednesday to five years probation for robbing a woman of her keys and cell phone, then licking her toes.

    Carlton Jermaine Davis, 26, was warned that he faces 21 months in prison if he fails to complete his probation.

    According to a criminal complaint, Davis approached the woman around 1 a.m. on Sept. 9 as she was leaving work and forced her to put her phone and purse inside a bag.

    Then he told her, "Now I'm going to suck your feet."

  53. Religious police in Saudi Arabia arrest mother for sitting with a man

    A 37-year-old American businesswoman and married mother of three is seeking justice after she was thrown in jail by Saudi Arabia's religious police for sitting with a male colleague at a Starbucks coffee shop in Riyadh.

    Yara, who does not want her last name published for fear of retribution, was bruised and crying when she was freed from a day in prison after she was strip-searched, threatened and forced to sign false confessions by the Kingdom's “Mutaween” police.

    Her story offers a rare first-hand glimpse of the discrimination faced by women living in Saudi Arabia. In her first interview with the foreign press, Yara told The Times that she would remain in Saudi Arabia to challenge its harsh enforcement of conservative Islam rather than return to America.

    “If I want to make a difference I have to stick around. If I leave they win. I can't just surrender to the terrorist acts of these people,” said Yara, who moved to Jeddah eight years ago with her husband, a prominent businessman.

    Her ordeal began with a routine visit to the new Riyadh offices of her finance company, where she is a managing partner.

    The electricity temporarily cut out, so Yara and her colleagues — who are all men — went to a nearby Starbucks to use its wireless internet.

    She sat in a curtained booth with her business partner in the café's “family” area, the only seats where men and women are allowed to mix.

    For Yara, it was a matter of convenience. But in Saudi Arabia, public contact between unrelated men and women is strictly prohibited.

    “Some men came up to us with very long beards and white dresses. They asked ‘Why are you here together?'. I explained about the power being out in our office. They got very angry and told me what I was doing was a great sin,” recalled Yara, who wears an abaya and headscarf, like most Saudi women.

    The men were from Saudi Arabia's Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, a police force of several thousand men charged with enforcing dress codes, sex segregation and the observance of prayers.

    Yara, whose parents are Jordanian and grew up in Salt Lake City, once believed that life in Saudi Arabia was becoming more liberal. But on Monday the religious police took her mobile phone, pushed her into a cab and drove her to Malaz prison in Riyadh. She was interrogated, strip-searched and forced to sign and fingerprint a series of confessions pleading guilty to her “crime”.

    “They took me into a filthy bathroom, full of water and dirt. They made me take off my clothes and squat and they threw my clothes in this slush and made me put them back on,” she said. Eventually she was taken before a judge.

    “He said 'You are sinful and you are going to burn in hell'. I told him I was sorry. I was very submissive. I had given up. I felt hopeless,” she said.

    Yara's husband, Hatim, used his political contacts in Jeddah to track her whereabouts. He was able to secure her release.

    “I was lucky. I met other women in that prison who don't have the connections I did,” she said. Her story has received rare coverage in Saudi Arabia, where the press has been sharply critical of the police.

    Yara was visited yesterday by officials from the American Embassy, who promised they would file a report.

    An embassy official told The Times that it was being treated as “an internal Saudi matter” and refused to comment on her case.
