Does anybody here see what I see???

07/03/2008: 1. It’s the 4th. Anyone want to come over and watch 1776 with me? Like maybe tonight??? I need some serious patriotism infusions (like the right kind, not what we’re hearing from Capitol Hill).

We’ve passed 3,000 American lives lost, who knows how many Iraqis, and NOW he’s going after Iran! When’s it going to stop? I’m not forwarding a plea from MoveOn.org, Read More …

Insanely busy the last couple of days…

Ok, so before I get started on the last couple of days, this I gotta share (thanks to RN, who finally forced me to get my own YouTube account).
