Check it Out/Autobots & Decepticons

I'll be back this evening, but if you want the story about Mark Schauer's playing games with Stryker money you'll find it at RightMichigan. Just click on the link.
See ya later.

A day is never a waste if you learn something--my motto. And today I expanded my universe to include autobots and decepticons. I'm sure you are all way ahead of me so I don't need to explain, but I would like to say this: After watching a couple of video clips my vote for the best line of dialog went like "you can't live with 'em and you can't melt them down." (And if you don't get that, let me know.)

Another random thought: What is it about Democrats that they are so often late? I can remember when as a State Senator Mark Schauer always kept an audience waiting (at least 10 and sometimes as many as 20 minutes) to watch a debate or panel discussion. Last night Obama didn't start his speech until a long time after the advertised start time. I'm not sure whether to call it a Power Play in the "I'm more important than you are" game or just simple disrespect of the value of someone else's time and I really would rather not be here, but aren't you lucky to have me."

Speaking of last night, how did you like another power play (small letters, not caps) of Ms. Pelosi. I almost felt sorry for poor old Joe Biden trying to keep up with her jumping up and down in her game of "one up on you, Joe."

One last thought and I'm going waaaay out on a limb here. My husband returned home today and one of his bits of news was talking to a young man who was adamantly supporting Obama--had a bumper sticker and everything on his Toyota. He drives for FedEx. I have this gut feeling that the next generation of drivers at UPS have a higher ratio of Republicans who drive American cars than FedEx. Why? Because I remember reading the biography of the founder of UPS and what I remember most about him was his patriotism--something like the guy who ran Mack Truck. Maybe it's a generational thing?

See ya tomorrow. Sleep well.
