I'm back!

All was magical.

I haven't even looked at a TV for four days. It's true. Ignorance is bliss.

But who needs bliss when one can blog?

I haven't linked La Shawn Barber is a while. She stopped blogging on politics and started blogging mostly on her faith. She is a wonderful spiritual filled person and doesn't back away from the controversial subjects. This post, Fatherlessness as Child Abuse? is brutal, but honest and true.

Related, kinda.

Oh, a quick note on "The Hall of Presidents" at Disney World. At the end they have those robotron like things that look like all our Presidents across the stage and each President was represented and introduced. I noticed that that other than Kennedy, none of the Democrats got much applause. Reagan got the most. Bill Clinton got NONE. Not even a single hand clap from a bored 2 yr old. George Bush got the most, but that was probably because he was last, but maybe not. Just an observation.

CNS News reports:

Obama spoke in Albuquerque, N.M. last week about his commitment to the issue and his support of a Senate bill to make it easier to sue an employer for pay discrimination. "Mr. McCain is an honorable man, we respect his service. But when you look at our records and our plans on issues that matter to working women, the choice could not be clearer," Obama told the audience in New Mexico, a voter-swing state. "It starts with equal pay. Sixty-two percent of working women in America earn half or more than of their family's income. But women still earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men in 2008. You'd think that Washington would be united it its determination to fight for equal pay."

Which makes this funny and not surprising:

Democratic Sen. Barack Obama pays women staffers 87¢ for every $1 he pays his men.

Compare and contrast:

That is in contrast to Republican presidential candidate John McCain's Senate office, where women, for the most part, out-rank and are paid more than men.

I still can't believe that Gen. Wesley Clark dismissed McCain's service and sacrifice as any sort of qualification to become President. Obama, of course, refuted it and he continues to let others say the dirty mean stuff, while he stays above the fray being the saint that he is.

That's all for now. I must unpack and restore order.

I have a funny pic from Disney I will post later.
