The Veep? Please say no.

Well, Romney just announced it.  Paul Ryan, the Tea Party darling, is Mittens choice for Veep.  The Ryan budget is so unfair and so tilted toward the rich and powerful that even the most inattentive voter should be able to see the disaster to our country if he attains the  power to enact it.

(For you who read this post earlier:  You will notice that I deleted a paragraph.  I apologize and realized that I had made a big mistake.  I suddenly remembered that it was Issa that used McCarthey tactics and not Ryan.  Mea Culpa.)

So here we are folks.  Finally the Republican party has gone completely bonkers and half of the public don't even realize it.  God help us.
An update:  First, thanks to all of you who were kind enough to show concern and notify me that I had been hacked.  I even got a call from and old and dear friend from Wisconsin and one from my sister.  I really know how to create excitement.  From men in black to hidden men in Bangladesh.  Life is never dull at my house.

 I tried to change my e-mail address on both Yahoo and Gmail yesterday after the debacle of my careless click of the mouse resulting in the phishing letter most of you received.   While I was able to get a new account, Yahoo only accepted it as a security back-up and I assume Google did the same and neither account is activated.   You may continue to use my e-mail address; at least until I have another problem.

I did change my passwords and that seems to be all that is necessary.  I do hope that is the case.

I wonder what trouble I can get into today.

Well! When I heard the Veep selection on the news, I thought one thing we can be pretty sure of is Obama and Biden will need to focus voters on the issue that the two R's -- Romney/Ryan -- will want to privatize Medicare -- and that's just the beginning.

It's going to be a long hot summer and fall. Reaching those who are considering supporting the two R's -- without alienating such undecided voters, so they'll listen to reason -- is one of the major challenges I see.

BTW, I have a couple of unopened emails from you -- one that begins about Abbott and Costello and the other arrived today with visible lead saying it had been checked with Snopes. Just want10 to check to make sure you sent them before I open.

Completely bonkers....yep, I agree. I don't even have any more to say. ~Joy

What amazes me is that the country appears to remain nearly evenly divided on their choices and political opinions. Even after 8 years of G.W. Because we're so often polarized in our views, I agree that the potential for aliennating is very strong when we attempt to influence. Let's just hope that Obama supporters will come out in force once again and practice their right to vote.

I can't believe the American people are so stupid as to put those people in charge of destroying the few programs we have that actually work.

At least with this pick for veep, it should be clear to Americans for what they are voting. These guys are two peas in a pod with no concern for the poor or middle and a self-righteousness that shows all over their faces. I hope lefties now realize what is at stake and donate or offer their time. if they don't, this twosome will win based on money talks and the old P.T. Barnum saying-- there is a sucker born every minute. Make that second these days.

*Joared - Those e-mails are okay to open.

*Joy Des Jardins - Nothing more needs to be said, although I am sure I will be saying much more. ;-)

*Judy - One can only hope, Judy.

*Anne - Today I read about a poor section in upper New York. The people live in dilapidated trailers and the bumper stickers on their pick-ups are for Romney. Go figure.

*Rain Trueax - Love your comment and the P. T. Barnum quote.

You can try to phish yourself if you want to get into trouble!

*Rummuser - As usual you gave me a big laugh today. Thanks.
