Why McCain, Part II

A few nights ago I stumbled upon this blog, written by and for the little guy, and shows his "changes" in action. Definitely not for the better if you're middle class.

Good read.

Why McCain??

Why NOT!?

For starters, Obama's healthcare plan is way off-base. Government control of healthcare is not the answer to our problems. Have you ever heard anybody say anything positive about veterans' health benefits? About Tricare (military healthcare)? Personally I haven't. According to and, Obama's healthplan will still leave 8.5 MILLION people uninsured. So much for universal.

Also, with respect to healthcare, according to FactCheck, "the US's costs are NOT twice as much as others."

Next, affirmative action. Just seeing those two words makes me want to gag. I am a WHITE FEMALE and I HATE IT. Personally, I see it as a slap in the face to get hired for a job simply because I am a woman. I'd rather my prospective employer look at my QUALIFICATIONS, NOT GENDER OR RACE.

Next up, his campaign. I see and hear him saying, "This country needs this, This country needs that!," but NOTHING to back it up with- I still have yet to hear him say anything explaining HOW he plans to execute this grand "Change we can believe in." So with that said, how do I know he's not just another all-talk-no-action, or as some would put it, all-sizzle-no-steak, chatterbox?

For any homosexuals reading this, Obama wants to repeal the don't-ask-don't-tell policy in the military! I disagree (and I'm straight)- it's really none of anyone's business. KEEP don't-ask-don't-tell. PLEASE. If I was in the military I sure wouldn't want to know. No disrespect to you guys, but it is your business.

BTW, Obama has voted YES on "reauthorizing" the Patriot Act, and even voted for it after promising to repeal it this past January!!

And one of the most ongoing, controversial issues, Abortion. Simply put, IT'S A CHILD NOT A CHOICE!!! You see, these "products of conception" all have THEIR OWN DNA. If it was just a lifeless lump of tissue, it would be in the woman's breast or elsewhere, and HAVE THE SAME DNA. My personal favorite is being called "anti-choice" simply because I don't believe in abortion. If that's really the case, then those who are pro-abortion are anti-life. The real anti-choice measure is being pro-abortion. A link to some true stories of women who had abortions because they felt forced is at the bottom of this entry.

After this sad note (if your read even one or two stories you'll know what I am talking about), to be fair, I do agree with Obama on some things. Obama is apparently against exclusions of medical coverage for pre-existing medical conditions. I disagree with McCain on supporting the "one-man-one-woman" marriage. I think that marriage is something that the government should not be meddling in at all. (i.e. just live and let live, please!)

Here's where I got the info on Obama

And here's some info on McCain's stances.

Do we really want our daughters to "choose" this? This site contains NO graphic pics of aborted BABIES. Promise.

A sign??

So I will share a funny story... sort of... Driving home from work today on the highway, we have the option of an HOV lane (DH&Myself work together). I merge over into the lane and of course the car (slow-poke likes to leave a mile in front of him-type of driver) that was in front of me had to come over too. Then I noticed the first three letters of the license plate on the car: HCG.

The dialog was as follows:

Me: Honey, look at that license plate... HCG! HA HAAAA!
DH? What's that? (of course)
Me: The PREGNANCY hormone! Maybe it's a sign!
DH: Oh, okay...

LOL so needless to say it definitely made the traffic more enjoyable, thinking it MIGHT be a good sign! (i.e. Accepting any and all babydust donations)

In loving memory of Pumpkin, grew wings @7w, 4 days, 2/24/08.

The Surreal World

It's been a weird week. Yesterday was Baby Pumpkin's due date, but of course no baby. No pregnancy. Amazingly, though, I made it through the day without getting too weepy or being a total basket case. I've already told Pumpkin I miss him (I have felt that it was a baby boy), beaucoup times. Unfortunately it doesn't bring him back to life, or to my arms. But I know he is here in spirit, watching over me and Keith.

I was thumbing through a newspaper yesterday and saw the date. It stopped me. "October 9, 2008." Right then it felt so surreal to already be in October. Where's the time gone?

I am able to stay distracted, for the most part. Thanks to Myspace and their apps. I'd post the links, but I'm just too lazy tonight (sorry!). I've been kinda lazy, in fact, for the last couple of nights... must be the damn weather- it's creeping (or trying to) back into the mid/upper 80's again. After several days of 100+ degrees, Mama Nature can take her crap back. I now hate summer.

On a much lighter note, we're pretty much back in the saddle again, TTC our first Earth Angel. I hope s/he comes around soon.

October 15.. A very important date. Pgcy & Infant Loss Awareness Day...

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day: Take Action

(Thanks Jeanne for bringing this to my attention!)

October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in the United States. More than 25,000 children are stillborn in the United States every year leaving mothers, entire families and communities devastated. Estimates of the rate of occurrence of stillbirth make it at least as common as autism.

Stillbirth is not an intractable problem. Greater research would likely significantly reduce it's incidence, but good research requires good data. H.R. 5979: Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act is under consideration by Congress. This proposed bill would standardize stillbirth investigation and diagnosis, thus providing more data for the needed research. Better research means fewer children born still.

On October 15th, remember the thousands of unfinished children lost and the families who remain to grieve them. Honor them by taking action. Let's help pass H.R. 5979.

Action Steps:

Step 1. Use Your Blog to Enlist Others
-Copy the contents of this entire post and publish it on your blog immediately.

GOAL: Enlist 10 of your readers to spread the word

Step 2. Use Your E-mail to Enlist Others
-E-mail 5 bloggers and ask them (nicely and in an unspammy way) to publish these action steps on their blog. Consider contacting celebrity bloggers, political bloggers, medical bloggers, or bloggers who are not part of your reading community.

GOAL: Enlist 3 bloggers outside of your normal blog sphere to spread the word in other online communities.

Step 3. Help Pass the Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act
-By October 15th, publish a post on your blog supporting H.R. 5979 Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act. For maximum impact, title your post: "Stillbirth Awareness and Research Act."

GOAL: 1,000,000 Google results on October 15th when that term is searched for. Currently, Google only returns 20,400 pages - most of which have nothing to do with the bill.
