This story is from June, but is really important now because if you folow the news like me it is known that Obama is in Mauee Hawaii celebrating the victory. It is so nice to know that we are having a presdident who only has a paper thin resume of 3 years in the senate to lead our country. I for one look forward to the next 4 years knowing we have a expereinced leader. Now I want to know who is the VP and cabinet people. I am giddy. I also like that the Obama HQ in Palo Alto is so close to Happy Donuts, I go there a lot for the rainbow sprinkle kind. We get to go to war in georgia now which is good so Obama can get Jimmy carter who we all know screwed up our relacions with Iran so that is why Bush had to attack Hussien. So things are going good for us now, I believe change is good and you can always use it to buy more when it is there for you. Why won't anyone buy my house now?

"...pro-life, guns, oil..think about it!"

Jack, absolutely, think about it!

Drill for oil (and support nuclear and solar and wind, etc.) - why not?

Guns? I don't feel safe, anymore, in Palo Alto. The police simply cannot protect us. We need our own individual guns. It is now the law of the land that we deserve them.

Pro-life? What do you want, pro-death? So-called "pro-choice" does not give a choice to the unborn child, which is at the whim of his/her parent(s) to determine the incredible torture that faces her/him. One would think, that at a minimum, we could decide that a timeline could be chosen, so that an incredible torture, with immense pain, is not suffered by the unborn child.

Sarah Palin is an awakening for many of us. She is a born leader.

Julie,

So you think a teen-ager raped by her stepfather should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term?

Supporting the rights of rapists, are you, to choose the mother of their child?

There are better and safer ways to protect one's self against street crimes than guns. A dog's a good one. If you have children it is completely reckless to keep a gun accessible--which gets in the way of it being a ready defense against sudden intruders.
