Sorry to hear about all that oppressive heat! I had my mother out yesterday and the temps were up to 30 C so way too hot for me. She had a sweater on. The AC was on in the car but still too cool for her. We came to a good solution that would work. Too bad the Republican/Teabaggers couldn't negotiate like my mother and I! From last Friday through Monday we've had some rain and temps around 17-20 C which is fine for me.

Puzzle — 3:59! Nothing like a drink of cool fresh water when you're getting heated up over a puzzle!

MoveOn — I did the quiz and I'm an investigator same as 18.4% of respondents. Hmmm… guess I should have figured that as I am always asking questions of digging into something. I used to try to fix broken adding machines at work 40 years ago (no calculators) with springs from ballpoint pens, spitballs and chewing gum. I became so proficient at it that the real repair person left a set of tools for me to use. I lived in rural or northern towns where the repairman turned up once a month at best unless it was a real emergency.

Truth Team — I don't have TV so I don't get American TV to see the all ads. But the ones I have seen here and on-line stack up as being 100% negative on the Rmoney side. All he seems to do is attack Mr Obama but does not articulate his vision or policies. Mr Obama's ads are partially negative, but in a way of contrasting what he has and proposes to do which he articulates. I have no respect for any politician that does nothing but negative ads.

I happened across a url on Care 2 which has a total non scientific quiz to see who you align with. No surprises here for me. I align with Mr Obama 88%, Jill Stein 87%, and LOL with Rmoney on 0% of the major issues. I align with 77% of the American voters. Have some fun and try it.

Olympics — So much for showcasing 'Made in America'! I don't pay much attention to the Olympics but do know there is already a controversy since the staff displayed the South Korean flag instead of the North Korean flag, causing the North Koreans to walk off the field. Oops!

Cartoon — That man looks like pure evil with the snarl on his face!

Excellent video by the Obama campaign - Ms Cutter is intelligent, competent and convincing.

OMD!!! Jill Stien 86%, Obama 81% Green Party 86%, Democratic Party 81% Rmoney...0% RethugCon Party 0% Well no revelation there!

Wow........environment is most important to me.....well DUH.
Yeah I took the survey, y'all should too.

Thanks for posting it Lynn.

As for Darth Vader Cheney......why is he not in prison for WAR CRIMES?????? If Obama doesn't change course on his domestic and foreign policies that smack of Bush/Cheney/Wolfie/Rummy....he too will be up for war crimes. What scares me (well, not really, kinda expect it out Fascists) is that Cheney and the whole NeoCon bag of vermin are advising Mr. Fascism 101 Rmoney, the new puppet. He cannot, CANNOT win this election or buy it or be 'appointed' by the Supremes. We cannot let that occur or we will see more war, more poverty, more pain at the pump, more of everything that will slowly kill us, the 'little people'. Dawg help us all.
