I was so rushed yesterday that I didn't even have 5 minutes to drop an entry into my journal! So, I'll cover yesterday and today in this one!
I didnt really do much yesterday, but what little I did do was time consuming!
Work went by pretty fast, and then I had to pick up Julie's sis, take her to work, then go and pick up Julie, come back home, help julie give the kids a bath, catch a quick nap, then we got up, went to church, came home, watched Survivor and went tobed. Hmm....looking at that list, I'm not really sure why that took all day, but at any rate, it did.
Today was pretty boring as well. Went to work, and was very hot most of the day. These screwy temperatures are messing with my sinuses! And now they are saying that it's supposed to be in the lower 40s this weekend!!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
I'm watching my kids today, while Julie is at work (which I do every day until 8:30pm, except for Sat. and Sun.). Jacob is asleep right now, so I came down to drop a few lines. I bought a few Spongebb videos for Jake today, so I'll sit down with him and watch them later today.
I am becoming addicted to Talk Radio, and it scares me. The FM stations here are so lame, and they play the same 10 songs over and over and over, so because I wanted to hear the war coverage, I turned it to the AM and found a Talk-24 station. Listening to those people argue with each other about everything from the Iraqi war to shampoo cracks me up! One woman was screaming about how she doesn't support the war at all, but she supports the troops, and that she thinks that they (the Iraqi soldiers) should be stopped by any means possible......but then she was trashing the troops for their actions. WHAT?! I know that by reading that sentence.....it makes no sense. Well, that's what this woman was making: NO SENSE! She was just babbling, and the hosts were laughing at her and talking over her. What a loser!
My rant is: Why do people feel the need to make fools of themselves? Out of all of these people protesting the war, I guarantee that there are VERY FEW who actually know WHY they are protesting. most are just doing it because its a form of rebellion, and the others are probably just there for the free snakcs/drinks/t-shirts or whatever!!! For example, if I hear someone saying that they oppose the war, and then I ask why, almost EVERY SINGLE PERSON says that we do not need their oil.
HELLO! It's not about oil! It's about this insane person who DOES have chemical weapons, and who HAS used them against his own people, and who DOES have links to the group that smashed planes into the WTC on 9/11.........if we wanted oil, and were so heartless as to just start bombing people to get it...wouldn't we go after Saudi Arabia?
I dunno......I'm sad that there is a war, and I may not back it 100%, but still.....I understand that it's something that must be done, and WE ALL need to understand that the government has information that we do not have. For all we know, they have absolute proof that there have been some sort of deals between Hussein and Bin Laden. For all we know, we could be hours away from a huge chemical attack against our troops......and meanwhile, we have all of these idiots blocking streets in Manhattan, claiming that they want to 'disgruntle' the people of this country so that they can see what its like to be inconvenienced like the people of Iraq. Well, if you're truly wanting to make us understand what the Iraqi people are going through, then you should've started starving us and blocking our streets and killing us 25 years ago. It's not over war, and it's not a 'cleaning up' war that George W. Bush is doing to finish what his insane father started 12 years ago......
It's mind-numbing! That's what it is! I'm so tired of hearing people complain about the war! I'm tired of people praising the people behind the war........does it really matter what we think? No matter what we say or do, our government is not going to suddenly be like "Oh, wait! The people are pissed! Let's bring all the troops home!"
There is no turning back now, so let's all just support the troops and pray for their safe return. Oh, and Saddam spelled backwards is almost 'Mad Ass'
