So...that said, I'll wait to continue my Deadly Sin post with your hero/heroine until I can give it the time it deserves.
I am writing three stories the old fashioned way at the moment. One is a novella that takes place before the action of my e-book, The Treasures of Carmelidrium. The other two are children's books. One is complete but no art yet so in the meantime I'm working on it's sequel and a Christmas book inspired by my granddaughter.
Now for our feature presentation. Popcorn anyone?
American Politics...the nominees are:
Looks like Romney for the Republicans and Obama for the Democrats. Why is it that you can land a job with experience but in politics experience seems to be a dirty word?
If I'm an employer, the first thing I want to know is: Can you do the job? Hay, that's a fair question. If you are a repubican you will claim that Obama hasn't fixed the economy. If you have any memory at all you will know that Obama said it would take longer than 4 years. If you are a democrat you will have heart trouble over Romney. Both think the other party borders on stupidity. This is why I don't participate, cause I'm not stupid.
So, purly from the perspective of an American citizen I want to ask. Does Romney remind you of Richard Gere's character in pretty woman? Or of pirates on the open sea before Johnny Depp turned priates into all time super cool guys? Let's take a narrow minded close up.
Romeny was CEO of a company that took over failing buisness', fired all the American workers, sold off the company in bits and pecies and pocketed the profit. Do you really want this guy as our President? Where is the scene where Julia Roberts takes him to a park to walk barefoot and smell the flowers? Richard got a conscious afterwards, I think Romney left his in the limo.
Family story time:
During the Great Depression, Roosevelt had some pretty unpopular plans to save America and get everyone back to work. Just before the election for his third term as President, or maybe it was his second, you can correct me, it's okay. The jobs started coming back to America. Roosevelt hadn't been popular until that happened.
My grandparents were farmers in Minnesota on rich abundant land. They didn't have the issues of the mid-west dust bowl. They fed their entire family through the depression into WWII. At that time, with so many American's fighting overseas, German prisoners of war where brought in to help harvest the crops.
My grandfather took one of them aside and said. "Do you like Hitler?"
The German soldier was a young man around 17 years, he said. "Do you like Roosevelt?"
My family were Republicans from the time of Lincoln. You can imagine my grandfather's reply.
See you all next time. I hope it is sooner than later.
