A little bit ‘o this and a little bit ‘o that…

Having nothing prepared nor any strange dreams to report, so I decided to comment on things I’ve noticed.

Bob’s Politics:
Looks like Barack may choose Hillary for Vice President. Seems like a logical choice. She has a strong following which can help get rid of the current “Republic” and replace it with Democracy. In my opinion, politically, she is the best choice; however, logically, for the nation, John Edwards would be the wisest choice. Besides after a couple terms as Vice President, who else would be a better President who would continue our shift from an empire to a great nation.

John McCain’s a good fellow who deserves to be President, but his time has past. Bush was a poor choice back in 2000. But what was even more foolish was choosing Bush in 2004. How many times do we have to go broke from trickle down economics before we, as a nation, figure out it just doesn’t work. Bush had the country goose-steping to the Republican war machine while he danced a jig on the constitution with his wire tapping and torture and Git-Mo. In the future, the history of this Republican administration will be an embarrassment, like slavery and Hiroshima.

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I think we need a good Republican in office and sometimes we need a good Democrat. Back in 2000 we needed a Republican and I would have voted hands down for McCain if he won the nomination. But that was then, and this is now. Right now we need at least 4 Democratic Presidents in the white house to set things straight…being they are good Democrats. That can change depending on what we have to work with.

Bob’s Home:
Our garage door window broke. It was glass and I replaced it with pexiglass. A garage guy looked at it and he said they would replace the whole quarter thing and get customized fitting glass and blah, blah, blah, It would cost about $450 and he suggested that I might as well replace the whole garage door for $1000.00, since our home insurance deductible is $500.

So I decided to fix it myself for $50. I went to Lowes and got the pexiglass cut to size. Mistake: I bought a tube of silicone to seal the window. I’m sure after watching re-runs of Bay Watch, you might think squeezing silicone would be lots of fun. No, no, no! That stuff is really hard to squeeze out of those tubes, my hands feel like someone smashed all my fingers with a hammer, poured gasoline on them and lit them on fire! Anyways, if you ever get stuck with a similar job, spend a couple of extra dollars to buy a caulking gun.
