Getting on the computer, I quickly found myself on facebook. Looking for good new about my friends and family. I started to make a comment, and it just kept growing. That's why it turned into a blog. I wanted to comment about the polls that had been appearing lately about national health care, abortion, President Obama approval ratings, etc. I just realized that Obama is not approved as a word by my spell check. Facebook is not approved either. I bet the developer is not aware of this. I probably don't have the latest upgrade.
I think the polls are great. The poll creators are really wanting to now what the public thinks. Are the poll creators politically motivated, or just curious? If our laws and government polices were truly ran by the people, we could do something like America Idol, where we text our vote in. We could change things so fast that even if it was wrong, we could change it back before to much damage is done.
No, I must still be dreaming. How can life be simple at this stage of the game. It's taken over 40 years for me to realize that it is natural for the world to complicate and cause confusion between people. Once you know that, it makes it simpler for you to enjoy the day.
I wasn't even going to blog today, but I felt it my American eesponsibility to express my freedom of speach. This one power can change our Nation for the better. Surely there are those of you out there with better ideas than mine. Speak up America. Speak more positive into the future, and less negative about the past. Our history is just a learning lesson.

Well it's the third day in a row that I have looked outside and seen rain gleaming between the Oklahoma City street lights and the darkness that lingers. I'm glad we are getting the rain. The grass was turning brown and this will help grass fires from starting. I know the ranchers welcome the rain to help the grass grow for livestock purposes and the farmers need it for their crops. All those who enjoy going to the lake and fishing should appreciate the rain.
I spoke to a person yesterday who raises watermelons. He told me the rain would really help the melons to grow to the size that they needed to be if we could get a little sunshine.
Today I have family flying to other states, friends having funerals, and I will be driving to work in the rain. I'm going to have a mentality that will accept the rain as a blessing and be thankful for all the good that it does. Since we are 90 percent water, I'm sure a little rain is probably a good thing.

An empty refrigerator would make putting new things in it more exciting.
Maybe I should go through my life and discard the things that are not beneficial to me. Just grab it and throw it in the trash. The trash is always getting full anyway. What is an extra trip to the curb. It would just be less garbage in my life.

Sometimes in the morning, I like to look out the window where I work in downtown
I don't work in the high rise office building part of
As the real estate in
So if you’re at work and you are lucky enough to have even a little window, think about all that there is outside and expect good things to happen. You being where you are, play a part of it all.

In fact there are so many things to do, that making choices may be the hard part.
What do you like to do in Oklahoma City on your time off? What ever it is, we hope you enjoy it and are appreciative that we live in a country where you have options.

I'm sure the attacks have really stepped up from the opposition at the Nations Capital, and people dedicated to the powers of our new government have crept in on her and her family. She makes an excellent target for the drive by media, with her patriotic actions, and Christian beliefs. Being a republican makes you even a bigger target. As Governor of Alaska, and a 2008 Vice Presidential candidate, you have caused fear in a party that wants to control it's people.
This is why I would resign:
My hands were tied behind my back by the tangled web of politics.
My mind was consumed with business and time for my family was being reduced.
I had set out to accomplish an objective, and had been more than successful at it.
You trust your family, friends, and God to support you.
And most of all, it is a free country and as of yet, no one can make you work where you don't want to. Thank you for showing America this one thing. Yes Governor Palin, you are free to choose a life style that fits you. Hunting, fishing, surfing, movies, long walks on the beach, and all the other fun things that a lot of Americans are doing while the Government has been using you for a punching bag. Live out a new dream.
I'm celebrating this Fourth of July (Independence Day) with you in mind. An independent citizen of this United States of America, who can be thankful for the liberties we still have, and the opportunity to keep them.
LET YOUR FREEDOM RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA
