Just a Thought About the Debate

About the debate on 9/26/08:



I don't think McCain explained in enough detail, why our country should strive to win this war. I have a hard time understanding why it is a bad idea to begin to pull out of a battle that is costing us so much. I hear him saying, "We have to win this war. We have to win," and it peeves me. How can he be so concerned with winning a war in another country, when we're losing a battle right here at home. This war is costing our country too much and it seems like McCain just doesn't get it.

  1. You do have a point on why he is so concerned about the war when there are other problems here at home.

    I think it's because him being a soldier during Vietnam nd since we lost that war, I think he really doesn't want to give up on Iraq and he wants to make sure we don't come back defeated. . . .even if it is costing us a fortune.

    It's weird, I know.

    And I have the same confusion towards Obama as well.

    They both can be confusing. . .

  2. Yeah, I figured the Vietnam thing must play a big role in McCain wanting to win this war so bad.

    My main concern is our country and the kind of economy our children will have to live in when they are adults.

    Between fighting to win a costly war and working to overturn Roe v. Wade, I don't think McCain plans to do much helping the economy.

  3. I do agree that there is too much focus on winning the war. To understand that we would have to understand a man's way of thinking. It's a struggle for power, which not only causes casualties on the battlefield, but right here at home. To the average American, with any common sense, catching up the national deficit is far more important than spending 10 billion a month, on a war, we shouldn't even be in. Bin Laden-Been Laughing at us. I can hear him now, "Look at those infidels, they're going broke, losing lives, and they still can't touch me. While they focus on us, they're in so much debt with China, and their constituents are outraged with their politicians... aw yes, chaos in America, I'm loving it!" We keep sleeping over here and one day we'll be one of those "occupied territories".

  4. I feel the same exact way. I think not only Bin Laden, but other people are laughing at us too. It's crazy and I just hope that our country can get through this. We need a Democrat back in the White House now.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it

Trust

Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
