OJ is guilty. Wow. I feel bad for Ron's dad. Can't OJ just go away? Oh, maybe he is.
On to more important things at hand. Like the Cubs down 2-0. Didn't this happen the year the Reds won it? Weren't they down like 3 games with just a few outs left, and they turned it around? One can only hope. I can only say I can't bear to watch the Cubs lose. I watched the debate instead of watching them lose (although my blackberry has the Cubs link on it, and I watched until they were down 5-0. Ouch! ) But I digress...
Oh yeah! There was a debate, wasn't there?
What's all this nonsense, "A tie is a win..."? Please. Senator Biden was clear, was concise, was passionate, was smart, was.. everything you want in a Vice President. Damn. And then, on the other side.. bless her heart, "why doncha, c'mon there, let's wink, wink, can I call ya Joe? Seriously, I'm mom six pack, I'm just like you, and you should vote for me, cause I'm just like you .. except that.. I'm not."
"Because I'm a liar. I stand up in front of you and say that I've hired diverse people in Alaska," when everyone knows she hired everyone from her grade school and high school class. She'll stand up there and lie about the bridge to nowhere, (not mentioned, thankfully) or lie about terrorists being in Iraq (weren't there until we invited them), lie about Obama's tax plan (taxing people who make 40 grand a year!) lie about Biden's record, about Obama's record.. just.. oh, it pain's me to say it - stop with the lying already!!!!
And these pundits who look for the lowest common denominator in our candidates. "Gee, I could drink a beer with Bush." I'll tell you, I'd rather drink a beer with Gore any day, Kerry too. They have their faults, they may not have been the best person in the country to spank George Bush, but a day has not gone by when W was in office, I didn't rue the day he stole the election. And if we're talking about Sarah, then she's a winner, if she didn't make an ass out of herself, she's a winner.. is the American public that retarded? I'm sorry, mentally challenged?
But past is past, and past is prologue. Let's move on. Sarah, I think you're in over your head. I think your between a rock (Iraq - or is it eye-rack?) and a hard place. You can't quit, the nation's made a laughing stock of you, and because of McCain's callous call to bring you onto the ticket, your life has been turned upside down. Everyone is Alaska is shocked at finding out who the real Sarah Palin is - with a million dollar net worth, and a long history of bullying, prevaricating and nonsense following you around. John McCain has not only ruined your reputation, he's ruined your career at future office. Didn't really think that one through when he went along with Karl Rove's suggestion, now did he?
So goodluck to you Ms. Palin, I'm sorry you had to have a bath by fire, but it's not fair for us either, to have to watch the nation go down in flames along with you. My take on elections; he or she with the best sense of humor wins. It's always been the case. As long as any President I remember; it's always the guy who stands there and says something clever, and pulls it off with grace and charm. JFK, LBJ, then Nixon over Humphrey (Hubert was not a funny guy, and Nixon, as much as I loathed him, was more 'interesting') Carter, Reagan, Bush, sorry to say Gore and Kerry looked way too serious all the time - something about being flippant that brings out the sympathy in all of us - and McCain has lost his sense of humor. And he's a funny guy. But it shows. He's tired and very uncool. And flappable. And Obama is not.. he's got an easy smile and a quick mind. Now if he could just add some laughs...
My two cents.
Okay, I'm not a psychic. I don't claim to be a psychic, but I'm convinced that if you focus on something, and listen, you'll get the answer. I know this sounds new agey, and for a guy who's working in Hollywood, not so far off the track. But I want to add some info to the Steve Fossett disappearance.
A week or so after he disappeared, Google sponsored a search for him online. I, like many others, joined in the online search. I combed a certain area, and then looked for others. However, I've also had some success with something called "remote viewing." For those of you who know what it is, I don't have to repeat it here, but for those of you who don't, it's the ability to "see" images from afar, and if you can tune into an image, get something out of it that's tangible.
When the little Utah girl was missing, my wife and I tried an experiment in remote viewing. I came up with "Wasatch mts., a mine shaft, and an image of a woman with long gray hair and owl glasses taking care of Elizabeth Smart" - very much alive. Later on, it turned out to be true. There was an older gray haired woman with owl glasses who took care of her. I saw her in the post arrest, and recognized her immediately. (I wrote all this down and forwarded it to the authorities by the way, no response, but that's understandable.)
I've also had some success with connecting with my kids when I'm further away. There was a study done at the University of Virgian, Ian Stevenson's group, which showed that people could tune in to their loved ones over long distances. In my case, I've been able to see my daughter in various places - particularly Disney land - while I was in Paris. I didn't know she was going there, but later called my wife and said "So, you guys were eating french fries in a yellow restaurant in Disney land today." She asked how I knew. I said "I meditated on it, saw the yellow walls, and got a sense of you and our daughter together eating French Fries - and she said that you weren't too happy." My wife confirmed that the long bus ride and long lines had made her grumpy.
Okay, back to Mr. Fossett. So I sat back and meditated on Steve, and instantly got the message "Catastrophic heart attack" "Mono Lake" "Was dead before the plane crashed." I wrote to the people sponsoring the search, didn't mention Remote Viewing, but did mention that I knew someone who'd "seen and heard" these details (me, of course) wrote to Steve's company to let them know what I thought I saw or heard - understandably, they didn't respond, but I suggested that someone look in or near Mono Lake for his plane. (a few miles from the crash site). So when the news came that they found his plane near Mono Lake, needless to say, I felt like I already knew that - and now am predicting if they can figure out what killed him - it will be a massive heart attack.. although I doubt they'll be able to do that with what's left of his remains. Either way, I'm putting this out there, if only to help those who've lost loved ones, to encourage them to meditate on them, and the answers that you're seeking will come to you. You heard it here first.
Steve, you were quite the adventurer, and you lived your life at the edge at all times. More power to you, and thanks for being a beacon to others. Rest in peace.
