My Thursday’s Thoughts are political once again. It came to me after watching numerous rallies in Pennsylvania over the past week.

 

You may think that your vote is worth as much as any other citizen of the United States, but sorry I must “burst your bubble”.  I can’t allow you to continue living a lie and in denial. Unless you live in one of the designated “swing states”, your vote may not mean that much. If you do not believe me, ask yourself “how many times have the candidates been to your state campaigning?” How much money is being spent on advertisements and calls in your area? If that number is really low or maybe even zero, then you’re not worth as much as say, “a swing state voter or independent”, in the campaigns’ eyes.

I don’t understand why voters don’t complain when candidates don’t treat their vote as important as the next person. With the candidates spending so much time in every nook and cranny of PA, OH, FL, CO, NC, and probably a few others, I began to feel unappreciated. The electoral college makes this voting process seem unfair and makes it very apparent that my vote is not worth as much as a Floridian’s vote.

So I’m wondering: How much is your vote really worth?

Today I’m just going to write about a few things that have been on my mind and have made me say, hmmm.

Here goes:

  • Why does John McCain insist that he has been tested? I may be missing something here, but when was he ever president? How can one be tested at a position that he/she has never occupied?

  • Why exactly did John McCain pick Sarah Palin?

  • Why didn’t Barack Obama pick Hillary Clinton?

  • Will Sarah Palin really donate her wardrobe to charity?

  • Will the votes from this election be counted fairly?

  • Why can’t somebody, anybody make a voting machine that REALLY works?

  • Is there really such a thing as a true Republican or a true Democrat?

  • Will the electoral college be done away with?

  • Why is Natasha nicknamed Sasha instead of Tasha?

  • Is it better to do early voting?

Thursday’s Thoughts are back once again.

My brain is twirling with a few things that I have questions about and I will try to discuss one today that was brought to my attention by my friend. (My friend and I have weird conversations when I think about it.) Well, to get back on topic, today I will be discussing…..light bread. Makes me laugh when I think about it.

I have a few questions about the elusive light bread like:

  • Is it called light bread because it’s darker than wheat bread? Crazy that I think this way…lol

  • Why isn’t it just called white bread?

  • Where did the term “light bread” come from?

  • My friend said it’s called light bread because it’s lighter than cornbread. I have no idea where this came from, but it was funny.

My grandmothers or father, for that matter, could probably tell me why they think it’s called that, but I’ll hold off and ask them later.

This week or month thus far has just been crazy, there is no other word to describe it. There are quite a few things that have occurred that have made me think Ashton Kutcher is gonna jump out the bushes any minute. Just to name a few:

  • we have had an influx of people to come stay at this house.
  • there are now more people visiting than those that actually live here.
  • how can a person who is not insane send their own child away for someone else to keep, but go and recruit end up babysitting for someone else?
  • how can a 2 year old eat as much as I do?
  • how can a 7 year old eat twice as much as me and still want more?
  • why can’t I make up my mind about my wedding attire?
  • why do certain people constantly ask me to do things that they clearly should be asking a significant other or a family member?
  • why does NuNu eyes leak? from her mouth, her words…lol
  • why does my bank account dwindle while others’ flourish?
  •  and one last thing…do these kids actually think I’m going to let them play on “my life”?

I am just overwhelmed and a lil bit confused, maybe it’ll all resolve itself before my head explodes.
