Off The Beaten Path

Georgia, United States
Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Thinking About It

Here in the US we are in an election year. Georgia has already had it's primary vote and although McCain didn't win here in Georgia, he is most likely to be the Republican Candidate at the General election.

The Democratic candidate, the main contender running against Obama, is Hillary Clinton. Personally as a Republican, I hope neither wins, but I certainly do not want Hillary.

I would like to present you with two thoughts currently on my mind.

1. Two men, both extremely wealthy, one sponsors terrorism, the other is a developer of relatively cheap software and gives billions of dollars anonymously to charity. This being the case, why was it that the Clinton Administration spent more money chasing Bill Gates over an eight year period, than trying to catch Osama bin Laden?

2. Hillary netted $8 Million for her memoir, Bill was promised about $12 million for his, yet these two people were unable to recall anything about their past events when questioned, under oath, by the Grand Jury.

Hi Quilly, I just thought it worth mentioning. haha

I only want good management for the country, the ability to decide where my money goes, and being able to live in safety. So Is that to much to ask? ;) haha
