A Mormon for President?

MSNBC is running a story and a poll at www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15936002/ asking if you would be willing to vote for a Mormon for President of the United States. In 2006 (and even more so in 2008), why does it matter what one’s religion is? Shouldn’t you vote for someone (or not vote for someone, as the case maybe) because of their political views? Because of their stance of issues that are important to you?

Public Expression of Religion Act (H.R. 2679)

There is a bill that has passed the House. It just needs to pass the Senate. This Bill would prohibit groups like the ACLU from suing the States because of 10 Commands, Nativities, etc.

I think this is great. I called and left Senator Ensign a message, with my support and urging him to try to get it voted on before the end of the session. Senator Reid’s voicemail box was full. Kinda funny.

Sen. Ensign – (202) 224-6244
Sen. Reid – (202) 224-3542

I’ve included the Text, etc, from thomas.loc.gov.

Smell that air? It's smoke free! (coming soon, at least)

We’re are so happy that question 5, the “Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act” passed. We will be able to go out and get food, gas, etc, and not have to smell smoke! There is a gas station just down the street from us that the employees are always smoking in. No more! Yeah. We had actually stopped going there months ago because of it, even though they normally have good prices and is on the way home.

2006 Mid-Term Elections

So, not all the precincts have reported yet, but it looks like some of the people I voted for won, and some didn’t. The big ones in Nevada that I wanted to win looks like they will win, including Jim Gibbons, John Ensign, John Porter, and Dean Heller. Jerry Airola didn’t win (it wasn’t even close!). Also, question 5 looks like it will pass, which will outlaw smoking in most public places!!

I was wrong when I said I didn’t think the Democrats will take the House.

Election Day 2006

The midterm Elections are being held tomorrow. The Wife & I already voted. I know everyone keeps saying that the Democrats will take control of the House, maybe the Senate. I just don’t think they will. I think the Republicans will hold the house by the skin of their teeth… but I do think they’ll hold it.

I guess we’ll find out, hopefully tomorrow, but if not, by Wednesday.

Kerry's Apology vs Foley's Apology

So, on Monday, John Kerry said “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” Finally, John Kerry apologize, kinda. At least, one was posted on his website. Makes me wonder if he wrote it or just a staffer wrote it for him. It took him 7 tries (or so) to even get that out. Well, to compare that to Mark Foley, Kerry complained and complained and accused the “ring-wing” to be trying to set him up. Mark Foley apologized immediately and resigned. I’m not trying to excuse what Foley did, but it is interesting to note that both of them only communications. Neither one actually did anything, other than talk! The Foley story was a top news items for weeks after he apologized. Yet, everyone is suppose to stop talking about Kerry immediately after apologizing? That’s the Liberal Media for you.
