Blogiversary just around the corner........ Best of Part One

Well, September the 4th is my one year blogiversary.  I have 406 prior posts, 1009 comments and 13,666 hits on the hit meter.

It's a lot of fun and I have so enjoyed sharing my opinions, my life, my thoughts and my dreams with all of my readers. 

I have readers from all over the world and I have had hits from every inhabited continent on the planet it's simply amazing that someone in South Africa would find something interesting to read on my little part of the interwebz.  The top 10 countries where I get the most hits are:

United States
Germany
United Kingdom
Canada
Russia
Australia
Ukraine
Italy
Singapore
France

That's a very interesting list to me and I'm truly happy to have readers from all over the world.

So enough of my back patting.  Over the next few days, I will be posting some of my favorite posts starting with my very first, below.


APATHY OR JUST PLAIN TIRED

With November just around the corner and yet another election under way, I can’t help but to find myself strangely apathetic towards the whole deal this time around. It’s really not like me to be so disinterested during an election cycle but the fact of the matter is that I don’t particularly like my choices
In the Texas Governor’s race, I have either Rick Perry or Bill White to choose from. Neither is a viable choice in my book so needless to say I will most likely vote 3rd party, much to my husband’s angst. I realize that a vote for third party might be a vote for Bill White but to be honest with you, I see very little difference between Governor Good Hair and Mayor Monkey Face, except for the hair and face. Both are ineffectual and neither have the people of Texas’ best interests at heart.

My district is a solid conservative district and I really have no problems with my elected officials. It’s unfortunate, however, I have no control over how people in other districts vote. All I can really do is sit and wait and hope that the people in Sheila Jackson Lee’s district wake up and smell the coffee and vote her butt right out of office. Of course, that is about as likely as the possibility that she would refuse a photo op.
I think that my biggest problem is that I really do not see any difference in the two parties which represent the status quo. Both parties are corrupt and both parties are hungry for power. That is power over you and me. The only difference between the two is that one wants to control our daily lives by forcing us to drive cars they think we should drive, and force us to buy government healthcare, the other party wants to make our moral choices for us. Neither scenario is acceptable to me.

I can only hope that at some point, these grass roots movements will take hold and people will wake up and realize that they are simply voting away our freedoms, our individual liberties, our lifeblood simply by sticking to the status quo. My advice? Fire them all……..
