    Finally, perhaps, I've found a place to air my thoughts, opinions, questions.....somewhere besides my husband's ear.....and to expand my consciousness on all things political. I am a 52 yr old white female and find that the older I get, the less I worry about making everyone happy. Can't be done. I definitely have a filter between my brain and my mouth, but I am more apt to speak my mind than I was 10 years ago.

    I am a registered Republican and was raised by staunch Republican parents. However, I rarely vote straight ticket - I vote, instead, by my beliefs on the issues at hand. I am disenchanted with the current administration/government. Sometimes I think we ought to throw them all out and start from scratch, and only let REAL people back into Washington. No lawyers, no career politicians, no former lobbyists. Just real, everyday people who live the issues, deal with the real world on a daily basis, and who don't have an underlying agenda. People who truly want this country to be better, work better; people who truly want to solve the problems that are pulling us down; people who are less interested in their own popularity and fame and more interested in listening to those who voted them into office.

    This could be fun.............! :cool:

    Welcome Jellybean.

    First the important question, are you a grape jellybean, a licorice jellybean, green, red, blue, yellow, pink, orange... um, what colors am I missing? :D

    Let me say that I agree with you on our current government. I think we would be better off if we would shuffle us commoners in and out of the capital on a regular basis. Basically have a draft... anyone wanting the position is automatically disqualified.

    By the way, I want to be President. :D

    Please enjoy your time with us and remember to have fun.

    Immie

    MMMmm, Lemon is good, but the licorice are my favorites. We fight over them in my house.

    Okay, remember me for the Presidential election, but don't forget what I said about those who want the job... it applies to the President as well!

    First, you must run the gauntlet.

    What is the air speed velocity of an unladen English swallow?

    Holy cow! That's easy...

    The Swallow Question

    I like the last one:

    Is it over or under weight?

    Give her something really challenging.
