Why This Blog?

    This blog is designed to be a place where the mind can freely stretch. If you are accustomed to confining your mind to close quarters, then you will find this blog an uncomfortable place. It is entitled 'Methinks' because these are my musings. I am not setting forth new doctrines. Rather, I am allowing myself to ponder whether old truths have been forgotten or misunderstood, and whether we have developed our own liturgy the same way a horse cart wears a path in a quaint rural road.  
   Here, in this blog you are free to express. The only requirement is that contributions represent a true exchange of ideas, not biases, or emotional responses.

what a pick!

i will say i was not enthused about having John McCain as a president - well i still am not, but now i wish i was in the states to vote in November.  a lot of people don't realize the impact that Palin will have on the GOP.  McCain's health is probably going to prohibit him from serving two terms, meaning that Palin would be an incumbent possibly as soon as 2012.  the liberal judges probably are hoping that McCain would lose to hillary the next time around, and won't retire, but if Palin were elected the older justices would die or retire prior to 2016-2020, meaning Palin would appoint up to 3 or four justices! Think about the possibilities

You know the thing that annoys me about Palin is what business does a 44 year old mother of 5 with a one year old child with downs syndrome, doing running for VP? I really would hope this woman would have the sense that her family was more important than any ol' race. I know that I am in the minority, but it would seem that there were better choices.

Well now I am proven right. It comes out that her 17 yo daughter is 5 months pregnant. Palin says, "She is going to marry the father", but big deal. If she is like most of America they would divorce is less than two years anyways. Now I am convinced that this woman should not be my VP. I will be voting for Ron Paul now. Sad day.

waste a vote if you want to. but what the 17 year old daughter may or may not do (divorce in two years) has nothing to do with her as a vp pick
