In My Not-so-Humble Opinion


Baby Gap Ad
Originally uploaded by Mainline Mom
I've been getting complaints that this here blog is B.O.R.I.N.G. Yes, I suppose all the details of my humdrum life are boring. So why did my blog used to be less boring? I think it's because I used to offer my opinion on things, and then I started not wanting to piss anybody off or seem too "opinionated" or something. So perhaps to liven things up I will start offering more opinions on things. Some may be very informed and well thought out opinions. Some may be very off the cuff. I'm sure plenty of people will disagree with me. Plenty of people will not care at all about the topic. What the hell....

Where should I start? Hmm....how 'bout presidential politics. You can argue with me, I may or may not choose to argue back. Remember, these are just my cold, hard, opinions.

On the left:
Hillary is a self-promoting, power hungry bitch. She doesn't really care deep down what's good for this country, she cares what's good for her. Too bad she'll probably win.

Barak Obama seems like a pretty good guy but with some faulty liberal ideals. I think he may actually care what's good for this country, but I don't agree with many of his platforms.

John Edwards is a wuss, and a clueless one at that.

Ok on the right:
I don't like John McCain. McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform turned me off on him. He just seems old and stiff.

I like Rudy Guiliani but it bothers me that he cheated on his wife and was estranged from his kids and has had a generally messed up personal life. His postions on abortion and gay marriage don't bother me as much, but I'm not sure he's got the skillz to be President.

So far I like Mit Romney but I don't know enough about his policies either. It doesn't bother me that he changed his mind on abortion, people have a right to change their mind on something major like that, as long as it's not a back and forth whenever it's convenient thing. I don't care that he's LDS, most Mormons I've met are really good people...with the exception of Andy Reid's kids....what the hell is up with them?

My neighbor wants me to support Mike Huckabee. I think my sister does too. From what I hear he's got the right positions on family values, but isn't as firm on immigration as most die-hard conservatives. Personally, after Bill Clinton I'm wary of any governor from the deep south. Texas doesn't count, Texas is like it's own country. Anyway I could support Mike Huckabee, but....

I like Ron Paul. So far I like what I've heard from him. I like that he's an OB/GYN, and a strongly prolife one at that. I like that he's in favor of less government, hands-off government. Not sure I like his position on immigration, he seems a little TOO uncompassionate, don't give the illegals squat. At least he's consistant on that, I guess.

Anyway I'm a long way off from deciding who to vote for. So that's my opinion of the day. Many more to follow.

Mike Huckabee is a liar and says what ever he wants to appease the evangelical crowd. He urged a pardon for a convicted rapist who raped a 17 yr old girl who happened to be a cousin of Bill Clintons and when he was released he raped and killed at least one other woman.
He thinks gays should be quarantined from society, or he did.
AND last but not least he's for the "Fair Tax" which will put a 30% increase on all the goods you buy. Yep good ole Huckabee...lookin out for America.
Vote Ron Paul. They can't find any dirt on him so the media attacks his supporters.

Hey cool, another opinion! I will have to do a bit of research on your Huckabee claims.

LOL. You crack me up. I like hearing your opinions. I have none on this matter. Which is why I like reading other people's. ;-)

While some of your readers appreciate your opinion on the B.O.R.I.N.G. Presidential race...

Alex is wearing a hoodie! It's just like a hat!

Thanks for delivering on what the rest of your readers want: hilarious baby pictures.

I hope Obama wins. It would be nice to see America go in the correct direction again. He certainly has his work cut out for him after Bush has screwed things up so bad the last seven years.

I dig your Opinions.

I'm sure you've realized by now that our political beliefs are pretty much a 180 of each other, but I love that you'll put it out there!!

Agreed with Booster on Huckabee, he's a rat. Check him out thoroughly.

I'm actually about 50% with you on Hilary.
Hillary is a self-promoting, power hungry bitch.
True. But I don't think she only cares for herself above the country. I think she is just very driven, which any woman would have to be to get to the point where we would consider her to run the country. I'm not saying I'm going to vote for her (I really don't know who I'm going to vote for yet...), but I definitely want to see what she does during campaigning.

Can we debate same-sex marriage again... that was fun. ;-)

You have to check this out: stainless steel thighs. It's not exactly an opinion, but I think it's hilarious--does that count?

I am glad you are giving your opinions even though I don't agree with them I think it is good to give our opinions.

I am a fan of Obama!
