What an ego trip Kerry is on

by TONI H / October 29, 2004 8:53 AM PDT

On Peter Jennings tonight, short clips of Bush and Kerry speaking in Spanish (coveting the Spanish TV channel for Saturday night to Latino voters), Bush asked for their vote..........

Kerry said 'this is the most important election of your lives'.........

Why the most important when we've had so many in our lifetimes already??????????? Because HE'S running, of course.

Oh, jeeezzzz.........

ALL of us projecting our egos outside of the home are on an Ego Trip

Politicians and Donald Trumps are on the Biggest Ego Trips. And must be or they would wither away from the heat of competition.

And this -IS- the most important election in living memory.

This is the election that determines whether we look forward with a realistic expectation of redeeming our former respect among civilized nations OR do we regress further into cowboys and indian mind games that cannot succeed but to mobilize BILLIONS of potential new terrorists?

Generalizations are the first step to spur more in-depth thinking out of critical issues.

No knee jerks need kick this post. But they may, they very well may, with my full blessing and appetite to debate on issues instead of vain appearances.

Actually to many the fact he's running may make it one of the most important, to be sure he's not elected.

I guess we'll know soon enough. I'll be glad when the campaign is over (next Tuesday) and the legal wrangling (Jan probably).

But I'm betting no matter what the outcome, people will be complaining about how it came to be.

Intend to not say anything at all if Bush wins, and offer a gracious "Congratulations" if Kerry wins.

I'll continue praying either way. Wink

Only way to go Mark. The voters will elect one or the other. Who ever wins we must unite and support.

This is the election that decides whether the US continues to progress, or turns the clock back to the 1950's and earlier by appointment of three Thomas/Scallia clones to the SCOTUS. This is the election that may decide whether personal liberties live in the US, or die on the altar of "increased security," as Ben Franklin warned they might 200+ years ago. Most important election of our lifetime? You betcha! And I wish Kerry weren't running, because several other candidates would have a better chance of forestalling the reactionary forces in danger of overtaking the country. Though the way a moderate like Clinton was demonized, anyone who opposed Bush would have been subject to the same scurrilous character assassination that's been visited on Kerry. After all, they did it to John McCain (now rehabilitated) and Max Cleland before...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
