The other one is for fun

So, I haven't written on here for quite a while. I do have a reason. It wasn't because I was extremely busy or tired or ______. It is because I didn't want to write another blog saying, "I am still looking for a job and barely paying bills with "blood" money (actually plasma money is a better description, but it is more fun saying it the other way.). I can, finally, report that I do have somewhat of a job. It isn't everyday, but it is something, enough that with donating, I will finally start to have a little extra cash. I got an email from my boss at the Bookstore on campus. In that email, she sent the schedule for the next two weeks, and I am scheduled to work two days each week. It isn't much, but it is something. I am still waiting to hear back from several other locations, but I am not going to hold my breath. I am still going to try to find another job that will allow me to work the other days that I am not working there. If I find out anything, I will let put something on here. I do want to not have to sell plasma anymore, especially after today. If you have ever had someone "dig" for your vessel, then you can relate to what happened today. Let's just say that my left arm is very sore and I can't bend it completely without wincing in pain. Well, it is 3:45 pm on Saturday the 28th of June and I am sitting in Panera using their free WiFi. I still have to go run a few places, so I need to go. Enjoy the next blog. There are two that I posted, be sure to read both.

DO YOU QUALIFY AS A RACIST?

My local Pastor sent this to me. I couldn't resist sharing it. I wish I could give credit to whomever wrote it, but I do not know who it was. So, to the mysterious writer, thank you.

DO YOU QUALIFY AS A RACIST?
It's becoming increasingly clear what the Democratic campaign strategy is going to be this election season: Vote for Obama or you're a racist. I'm not sure I think too much of this approach to bullying the American electorate into selecting a candidate. Aside from the fact that, if you're a Republican, it's always a mistake to let your adversary define you, it also seems to me to free people from certain otherwise laudatory restraints.

As for me, because I'm preemptively being defined as a racist (since I most certainly won't vote for Obama), I've decided to step up to the plate and embrace that definition. From here on in, I've got my mantra.

When I vote against Obama on November 4, 2008:

a.. It won't be because Obama wants to withdraw from Iraq, which I think will weaken America's interests beyond repair; it will be because I'm a racist.
b.. It won't be because Obama thinks that a nuclear Iran is no threat to the Western World, it will be because I'm a racist.
c.. It won't be because I think it's an incredibly stupid idea for the most powerful nation in the world to approach evil totalitarian dictators as a supplicant, it will be because I'm a racist.
d.. It won't be because I hate the idea of a President who will subordinate America's interests to the UN (as he inevitably will), it will be because I'm a racist.
e.. It won't be because Obama has the thinnest resume ever in the history of Presidential candidates; it will be because I'm a racist.
f.. It won't be because I think Obama's Leftist connections (Ayres, Dohrn, Soros, Pfleger, Wright, etc.) show him to be either stupid about or complicit with an agenda antithetical to basic American values; it will be because I'm a racist.
g.. It won't be because Obama consistently chooses as advisers people who have opted for the wrong side in the completely binary debate about Israel's right to exist, it will be because I'm a racist.
h.. It won't be because Obama wants to socialize American medicine, which I believe will destroy the high quality of medical care available to most Americans, it will be because I'm a racist.
I.. It won't be because Obama wants to gut the military and reduce us to a nation with a big target painted on our collective backside, it will be because I'm a racist.
j.. It won't be because Obama wants to gut the Second Amendment and destroy Americans' Constitutional right to protect themselves from foreign and domestic enemies, it will be because I'm a racist.
k.. It won't be because Obama has already announced loud and clear that he will support activist judges who place their "feelings" above the law, it will be because I'm a racist.
l.. It won't be because Obama supports judicial decisions creating a right to gay marriage, when I think that decision is one for the voters, it will be because I'm a racist.
m.. It won't be because Obama's announced that he will dramatically increase taxes, putting the slow, inflexible, ill-informed government in charge of what should be a quick-reacting, knowledgeable marketplace, it will be because I'm a racist.
n.. It won't be because Obama's record in the Senate (albeit short and undistinguished) has been so liberal he makes Teddy Kennedy look like a reactionary, it will be because I'm a racist.
o.. It won't be because Obama's an open-borders kind of guy, it will be because I'm a racist.
p.. It won't be because Obama has shown himself to be a scarily slow thinker and speaker when released from the teleprompter (which really doesn't bode well for those cozy private chats with Ahmadinejad, Jong-Il, and Assad), it will be because I'm a racist.
q.. It won't be because Obama's wife clearly loathes America and everything it stands for, despite the fact that she's done pretty well out of it, it will be because I'm a racist.
r.. It won't be because Obama was affiliated for more than 20 years with a church that preached white hatred and began to care only when it looked as if it would affect his campaign, it will be because I'm a racist.
s.. It won't be because Obama was good buddies with Tony Rezko, and other sleazy characters (showing again that Obama was complicit or a singularly bad judgment of character), it will be because I'm a racist.
t.. It won't be because Obama's a compulsive liar who clearly thinks we in the public are too stupid to catch up with his lies, it will be because I'm a racist.
u.. It won't be because Obama's campaign has proven to be fly-paper for every two bit troofer and anti-Semite in America, it will be because I'm a racist.
v.. It won't be because Obama's promised already to start down the totalitarian path of purging his predecessors through criminal prosecutions, it will be because I'm a racist.

All things considered, when I think about being a racist as I've defined it, not as they have, let me say it loud and let me say it proud: On November 4, 2008, this racist is not voting for Obama!
