With only a few days left until the election, I sit here this morning wondering what is in store for out beautiful country. Our economy sucks right now, jobs are being lost at a high rate, gas prices were at an all time high but are finally coming, and we are all fixing to vote on November 4th! I remember back in 2000 when we were sitting around watching the returns come in and the state of Tennessee had voted for this guy we thought was going to take this country even further than Bill Clinton had already taken us. I didn’t vote back then but now I know I should have! The great careless and almost ignorant people of the state voted for president Bush along side of the whole country. I remember several years later at the Kroger’s while filling up with gas people were bitching about the gas prices, I looked at them and told these people hey who did you vote for back in 2000? One guy told me he voted for Bush and I told him well don’t bitch about the price of gas because Bush is going to make millions of gas while he is in office! The good ole boys in Washington are always going to be good ole boys like the ones here in Tennessee. My father said the other day that Tennessee will sit in their little shacks on the side on mountains in the state and will vote Republican this year. I just wish people would Wake up and do the right thing and vote for the right person this time andnot try to follow suit with the good ole boys! Gas prices are slowing falling now because of the election and the economy but its alittle late because millions have lost their homes and jobs and with the holidays coming up soon many won’t be able to have dinner. Don’t you good ole boys see what you have done to our country over the last 8 years? I am so sick of this! It is our American duty to go and vote. So I ask everyone to go ahead and make plans to get out Tuesday morning nd cast your vote but remember while standing in line that if you vote for the wrong guy it could be another four more years of what we are going through now!

GET READY, HERE SHE COMES!!!
POLL: MITAKIDES STRONGLY POSITIONED IN HER BID FOR U.S. CONGRESS
A just-completed poll by top national firm Lake Research shows 57% of voters in Ohio’s Third Congressional District are not planning on voting to re-elect incumbent Republican Congressman Mike Turner, strongly positioning Jane Mitakides in her bid for election to the U.S. Congress.
“We’re in a recession, and Washington is doing nothing about it,” said Jane Mitakides. “My opponent is a rubberstamp of President Bush’s failed policies and like the president, his approval rating suffers.”
Congressman Mike Turner votes with Bush nearly 90% of the time. Turner’s record of rank-and-file voting includes highly unpopular votes to rubberstamp Bush’s policies in Iraq, the economy, trade laws and billions of taxpayer subsidies for big oil and energy giants. Incredibly, he also votes against the interests of veterans 70% of the time, including voting against the GI Bill.
“The desire for change is palpable, evident not only from Turner’s weak job performance ratings, but also from voters’ plainly stated desire to see a Democrat elected to Congress,” explained Celinda Lake, president, Lake Research Partners.

Swing States Project
“OH-3, with a Cook PVI of just R+3 and centered in Dayton, was represented for a long time by a moderate Democrat Tony Hall… While this is not as “sexy” like some races that feature telegenic Dem candidates, are near big media centers, or which feature especially odious Republican incumbents, it certainly is not a “safe GOP” district…”

With everything that’s been going on with the city hall here in La Vergne Tn, I am beginning to wonder if our city officals have any pride? I know that some of the top officals and supervisors don’t even live in our city. Are they embarrassed by our city that they have to live elsewhere? I know that one aldreman is running for re-election this November and I am going to do everything in my power to have them re-elected. As for the others I could care less about them for they don’t stand up for our rights and they dont take pride in this city. There are citizens that could run city government better than what its going through now! Let’s stand up now and take back our great city.
I am so glad that Hillary won W Va. tonight. Now the talk is if she looses and Obama gets to go to the general election in Nov can he win W. Va.? I say no because he didn’t even spend enough time there and it shows the people in the state that he doesn’t care enough about them. Also if they don’t included Fl and Mi then the people of these 2 states will be angry enough not to vote and these 2 states will turn Republican. so Obama you have really messed things up now and all I can say is the Republicans will beat your ass so step on down now and let Hillary win this and become he VP!!
