DST and other things.

Yay for daylight savings time and the extra hour of snoozing last night. And Boo! to all you Hoosier voters who plan to vote against Mitch Daniels cause he brought it. First, its about time we caught up to the rest of the country. Second, to vote against someone for that reason alone is just plain dumb. And third, Jill Long Thompson is the recipient of all those votes against Mitch.

What. Are. You. People. Thinking!?! Any time she has been interviewed, the majority of her comments have been to bash Mitch. The few and far between times she has actually said what she would do as governor has not even made sense. I listened to an interview she gave to 93.1 WIBC radio and she said the solution to the loss of jobs in Indiana was to bring back manufacturing jobs because that's what makes Indiana strong. Then, when asked about the "brain drain" of Indiana college grads leaving the state for better jobs, she said we need to stop it. Oh, and bring back manufacturing to the state. That'll keep those college kids here. Um, what? Again, lets try looking forward. Manufacturing jobs are a step backward not forwards. And um, that's not what those college kids are going to school for. And what percent of those manufacturing jobs require a college degree anyway? Management positions maybe? Even if every position required a basic degree, what are we going to do with all those MBA"S that our colleges are spitting out. Don't say you haven't heard the commercials cause you have. They are almost as frequent as the election commercials. Speaking of which. I don't care if you agree with me or my politics, go vote! I am.

BTW, Have you seen the stories about flyers/email circulating info saying that because of the large expected turnout, repubs. are voting on Tuesday and Dems. on Wednesday? (or vice versa) Despicable. Doesn't matter if you don't agree with the other party, we ALL have the RIGHT to vote. On Tuesday. That is all.

And I can sleep well tonight knowing that my man Mitch prevailed :)
By a landslide in my opinion, the last I saw his lead was over 20%!
