"President Bush MADE me loose my house." Wow...REALLY?

Really? Come on people.... WAKE the eff up. President Bush MADE you loose your house? So, he FORCED you to not do research on ARM loans? He FORCED you to get a house you couldn't afford? He put a gun to your head and MADE you purchase a home you didn't do research on? Come on people! I am so sick of hearing people say "President Bush made me loose my home." I am not 100% defending the man, but COME ON! He has such a bum deal in the white house. He is just getting such a bad rap. Also, let me remind you that the power in congress is democrat for some time now. So before you go blame republicans for our economy.....take a look at yourself and the government. We have three branches of government for a reason. Three forces to make a decisions. The president surely doesn't make those decisions all by himself.

If you want the economy to change....you need to change yourself. Americans live on credit. We purchase EVERYTHING on credit. We buy homes that we can not afford. We buy SUVs (in the city...they cost so much, we never take them off the interstate) that we can not afford the gas, let alone the payments. Then, we get into an accident and sue the insurance companies because you hurt your back and it is a fast easy way to get a small fortune. That increases everybody's premium. You go and blow that money on stupid crap. Before you know it, you are back in debt....again. Not able to pay the premiums on your vehicle insurance. No wonder why foreigners hate Americans.....they have a really good point. We look at the next month, not look into the future and plan on our world/economy changing. We just see it as today and we thing that is how the world will be tomorrow. We just see that big ass SUV and think how cool we will look flying down I-17 in it. We need to start to look at Europe and other successful countries that found away to survive the world and it's evolving ways. After all, everything that thrives...evolves after time. If it is a mammal or NASDQ, it will evolve.........someday. We will always evolve to our surroundings. Good or negative.

So, one week away from the elections....most of you are just thrilled that it is almost over. Sick of the right wings and left wings duking it out at work or hearing the mud slinging on the television. It is one week away. I know most of you have made your political choice. I am not going to tell you who to vote for (just pursued you =) ). I will tell you to do research and see who you want to evolve with. Someone who wants the ever so generic "change"? Really people? You think a socialistic government will give you the change you/we need? You just see someone who is charismatic on stage....who tells you that we need change. I think to myself...."what changes has he done"? He has not authored one bill. NOTHING since he has been a senator. So yes, our world does need change, but we also need a leader, a maverick. Or is most cases and scapegoat to blame when they repo your SUV. I have voted for both republican and democrat presidents. I am very much in the middle of the road. Extream liberalism, in my opinion, is just not the way to go. Socialism and taxing the crap out of the citizens to give to the baby popping machines is just not the way to go.

We need a leader, a maverick. Individuals with experience.

Six Months....WOW!

Six months....can you believe it? So I keeping getting ask....how is your marriage? First off, my initial reaction is, it has only been six months people. Overall, marriage has suited me just fine. I very much like being married to Ryan. We have a great relationship. We laugh, we joke, we have a great time. We have our own lives as well. Ryan has taught me so much about myself and the world. He taught me how to relax and have a great time. We both are naturally serious people, but put us in a room together....we magically become funny and less serious. Ryan has made me become a stronger person. I make decisions and not let people walk on top of me. Ryan has made me be the person I am proud of. He has stood by me when I was super sick and still told me I looked beautiful. Our marriage so far.... it's perfect for me! I am very happy and very proud of what we built and we have the tools to make it a successful marriage. We both understand that marriage is not 50-50. Marriage is 100% from both people.

For our sixth month anniversary....we went back to the place where it all went down. We went back to Vegas, baby! Ryan had a craps tournament. We gambled our ass's off! We had such a great time. I won a very nice fleece pull over. Ryan won a daily drawing of $150 from PH. We both got into a blackjack tournament in November. Which, I am sure we will both go to. Overall, just a fantastic time. We both heart Vegas so much!
