ran 4.0 miles
Funny how news moves like tides. I remember early on, when I started this blog, often I would grasp for something really worth posting about. I remember struggling just to find a story with real substance. And, if I did, it would require research, paraphrasing, consolidating, concision, and an amount of effort that many times I simply did not have enough hours in the day to make it worthwhile to mention. Nearly two years ago when I started this blog, it was still necessary to convince people that Barack Obama just might be a bad idea. But, now that we're nearing the two-minute warning, the game has been played, the score is tied, and come November one of two candidates are going to have the ball within ten yards of the end zone and it is going to come down to whether one team scores or the other's defense prevails. As we move closer to this monumental election, which will blaze a path in one of two very distinct and opposite directions, the tide is flowing in higher and higher with no sign of an ebb anytime soon. Breaking news is more abundant than ever and the tide was high today.

This campaign video is being reported as the best, most effective ad...ever. I usually change the channel when political ads come on so I'm not qualified to judge, but this guy did come up with something catchy and clever. 

Twice in two days President Barack Obama has referred to his daughters during speeches as "his sons", even with a teleprompter. That's eerie. 

Obama hosting Bushes at White House?


How does this president even poll with 50% of Americans supporting him?! The weakest link in the chain of our electoral process is ignorance. It is uninformed Americans stepping through the curtain to vote when they don't even know who the Speaker of the House is, when they don't even know how to contrast communism to free enterprise, when they don't appreciate everything this country has done to preserve the intentions of its founding fathers and they would rather whimsically compromise those roots with uneducated, unexplainable, frequently occurring lapses in judgment. 

And here is a story worth checking out. There is a new book chronicling Barack Obama's high school days in Hawaii. The author, David Maraniss, claims that marijuana was a much larger picture of our president's teenage years than Obama suggests. I'm not passing judgment but it's just one more thing that this man, who we know so little about, had covered up by the media in 2008. Stories that should have been exposed but were irresponsibly not are abounding exponentially as the election grows closer. Being able to say "I told you so" is only a minor form of gratification compared to the disappointment that those individuals who back this guy simply don't care about his shady and flawed past even though it has more and more light cast upon it daily.

111.6 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day270.
