Clinton and McCain think you are SHEEP! Pay close attention to who you vote for! Don't be SHEEPLE!!

The Gas Tax Holiday won't work period. Want to know why Obama knows? Because he voted for the gas tax holiday happen in Illinois. Wait, if he did it there - he must be a flip flopper if he doesn't want it now? Not exactly. He did something our government hasn't done in a long time: Obama learned from his mistake. It WON'T WORK.

From ABC news:

“There’s not an expert out there that believes that this is going to work. There’s not an editorial out there that has said this is actually the answer to high gas prices,” Obama said of the gas tax holiday plan. “In fact, my understanding is, today, Sen. Clinton had to send out a surrogate to speak on behalf of this plan, and all she could find was, get this, a lobbyist for Shell Oil to explain how this is going to be good for consumers. It’s a shell game, literally.”

Obama was referencing Steve Elmendorf, a Clinton supporter, who told CNN that Clinton’s gas tax holiday plan was a good proposal. Elmendorf is also a lobbyist from Shell Oil.

“We can’t afford to settle for a Washington where our energy policy, and our health care policy, and our tax policy is sold to the highest-bidding lobbyist,” Obama said, and criticized Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., for a plan that he said would do nothing to solve the gas price problem. “This is what passes for leadership in Washington -- phony ideas, calculated to win elections instead of actually solving problems.”

Florida Trip

Went on a little 4 day trip to visit my brother Scott. He's been in Florida for 2+ years and haven't really even talked to him much.

One great thing about me and Scottie is that we pick up where we left off - like it was yesterday we hung out. I remember when he went into the Navy - we didn't even talk for 2 years and I called him up - this is an exact transcript of the conversation:

me: Scottie!

S: Hey, Pappy!

me: I'm coming to visit you.


me: I'll be there on the 16th


me: I'll stay a week


me: bye

S: bye

The conversation for Florida wasn't much different.

I'll tell you this, we did a great job of packing each day full, here are a few pictures of it - for the whole album clickjack on over to flickr to see them all.
