Politics Are a Pain in the Neck

Hi everyone.  I'm here having another day of pain in my neck, although it isn't quite as intense today.  I have been popping one Motrin after another during the day and popping Vicodin in the evening.  What a life huh?
 
I chatted with my dear friend JP last night.  That helped to lift my spirits and I hope that he realizes that.  He is such a sweetie.
 
What is it with the Democratic primaries anyway?  It is confusing me and it seems in my estimation that so many voters in some of the biggest states aren't being allowed to have a vote that counts towards nominating our next nominee for President.  For the second time, the first being Michigan, and now in Florida, the voters who voted to give Hillary Clinton a victory will not be allowed to have delegates at the Democratic National Convention in Denver later this summer.  You tell me, is it fair to not have your vote counted.  The DNC apparently said that since these states moved up their primaries that no delegates will be seated.  The candidates weren't even allowed to campaign in these states.  I think that is a set up for a disaster both at the convention and maybe even the general election in November.
 
As I write this, McCain was just projected the winner  over Romney in a close election with Giuliani a very distant third.  He may drop out of the race soon and possibly endorse McCain.
 
That is all for my politics for tonight.  I'm sure you are all glad about that.  I hope you will have a nice and happy tomorrow.  Luv ya!  TTFN

I hope your neck feels better :(   I didn't know that about politics. I really dont' believe any of them that run really. I think that even those with true intentions are great, but in the end it's the congress that holds more then 1/2 the deck, so my thought is, a president potential can say what he/she wants to get the votes, but int he end they mean little if they don't have congress with them.  Does that make sense?? I want Oprah for president :) HA HA HA HA
Hugs

Hi Allison,  I hope by the time I leave this comment that you're feeling better.  A pain in the neck is just that-a pain in the neck.  And politics?  Don't get me started.  I hate to say this, but by the time we get to the elections, I will be so heartily sick and tired of all the crap and backstabbing, one-upmanship.  In one local area here in Michigan, less than 17% voted.  That's Democrats and Republicans.  
                                              Smiles,  Leigh

Hey there,
I know you don't yet, but I hope you feel better soon. The phrase "pain in the neck" takes on a whole new meaning now, right?

In regard to politics, I'm just glad we have a few months to keep making the decision. It's not clear to me just who to vote for.

Luv ya

Neck still bad huh? Don't worry about the politics at the moment, just in case you jar your neck with frustration ;-)
