Tuesday's Top 10

So I've decided to start a Tuesday's Top 10. I'm sure if it even exists, but if not, I have created it! I guess it will be similar to Thursday Thirteen. So here goes!

Top 10 Reasons I Voted for McCain

1. He's been in a war before. He has a little insight on how to deal with them. He has enough sense to know that we can't simply leave and believe everything will be just fine and dandy.

2. He is against recognizing a homosexual couple as a marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman.

3. He plans to give tax breaks to small busineses. My husband owns his own shop. We could really use a break.

4. He is not going to take more of my money just to give more to all of these sorry low-lifes that do not need to be on Welfare. Please understand, I am totally for helping out people who cannot work or provide for themselves. However, there are way too many scumbags who work very hard to not work. "I'll just work at McDonald's for the rest of my life so I'll be under the income limit. I'll just shack up and have a kid so I can get a bigger check. And to top it all off, not only can I get a check every month, but I also get a cell phone!" In the words of Dave Ramsey, "Are you kidding me?!?!" This really really REALLY makes me mad! I have worked too hard on getting my college degree to have my money taken away to help these sorry people.

5. He is against the mass genocide of babies, also known as abortion.

6. To my knowledge, McCain's friends aren't former terrorists, criminals, and racist preachers. I cannot trust anyone who has been involved with such a high number questionable characters.

7. John doesn't want to take my guns away.

8. Palin is supposedly going to make us an energy efficient country. No, it will not happen overnight, but if we start now, things will speed up. We have to start somewhere!

9. McCain has said that he will strictly enforce immigration laws. Obama says he will, but then turns around and suggests that they should be able to bypass the entire process and just be made citizens. Afterall, they're already here, why not? I don't think so. The laws are there for a reason.

10. He publicly claims to be a Christian. He doesn't change his religious affiliation depending on the audience he's speaking to. He is a Christian. Period.

Once upon a time...

...I used to blog on this thing! So it has been quite a while, but this is yet another attempt to get back in the groove. First, let me give an update on me:

I am now married to Josh. We were married August 4, 2007. We FINALLY finished our house and moved in April of this year. I'm still attending UNCG and will be graduating next summer (WOOHOO!) with a degree in accounting. Josh and I still do not have any children. I could not imagine having children right now with everything that's going on! We do, however, have a great big dog that is my baby. His name is Otis. He is a Cane Corso (Italian) Mastiff. He's only 10 months old and weighs about 130 lbs! I'm not sure if I had mentioned previously that Josh is a mechanic, but if I have, it won't hurt to read it again. Well, he has now opened his own shop in Eden, Josh Smith Auto Repair, LLC. I'm now attending Dan River Wesleyan Church with Josh, and I love it. Everyone there just took me in when I came.

So that's my life for the past year in a paragraph.

I would like to say that I will be glad when this election is over. Back in December when there were still multiple people running for each party's nomination, I really got into politics. For the first time, I followed what was happening and halfway understood. My interest in politics has grown so much since then. However, I'm now burned out. I am tired of the ads, the new stories of corruption and lies, and trying to figure out why people think the way that they do. It is beyond me how anyone could think that murdering a child is okay. Shocked to hear that some think it's okay?? Abortions are happening everyday all over this country. I don't understand how someone can take a passage out of the Bible, that specifically says that homosexuality is an abomination of God, and decide that it's really not that bad. That it's okay. It's beyond me that anyone could believe that if we pull out all of our troops from Iraq, that everything will be fine and the war over. Well I've got some news for you: it may be over for a while, but not a long while. It won't be long before they're knocking on our door again. But then again, I guess the world would be boring if we all thought the same way. I will just be glad when we know when our next president is and we can all deal with it and go on. Either way the country votes, things are going to get worse. All we can do is pray that the people that are put into office are intelligent enough to make it a little bit more bearable.

I'll try to put up some more current pictures of our family soon!
