I was disappointed yesterday when I read that Obama voted for the FISA bill going against his promise to vote against it. I still think he is the best candidate for president but wish he would have voted ‘no’. It’s also interesting that Clinton voted ‘no’ for the bill. Maybe she will try to make a comeback based on this vote?

Yesterday, when Alisse and I were outside by her car. She heard geese and was starting looking to see where they were. I turned toward the direction of the noise and there, on top of the building across the street were to geese! The building was probably 20-25 feet tall. Alisse and I turned and looked at each other and burst into laughter. I wish I had a camera, it was really funny.
I don’t think I had ever seen geese perch on a building that high. Yes, they were ‘Canadian’ geese (to some and ‘Canada’ geese to others.)
We didn’t get to Obama this weekend. It was a little disappointing after waiting in line for so long. But we did go to Bed Bath and Beyond and registered for a bunch of stuff.
Two real men, the same age:

- Earned three letters of commendation from the White House
- Total of 6 years active duty.
- Four deferments for college
- One deferment for being a prospective father.

I’m really looking forward to Super Tuesday, I’m also a little nervous. I’m excited because ‘front runners’ for each party should be decided and nervous for my favorite candidate. ‘Who might that be?’, you might ask and I would say it’s ‘Barack Obama’. There are many reasons why I like Obama. One reason is Obama is a Mac and I like Macs .

Last week, I wrote a email to my senator urging her to vote for the Federal Marriage Amendment. (I tried to email my other senator but his email box was full.) I received a response from her. Manly, she said that the issue of marriage should be dealt with at the state level. I checked the Senate’s website for the voting record and both of the Michigan Senates vote nay on the Amendment. I’m disappointed, but I’m looking forward to voting in the November election.
One interesting thing I noticed, was the list of Senators that didn’t vote. Yep, there are two names there: Kerry and Edwards. I would think that voting on a Constitutional Amendment would be an important enough thing for Kerry and Edwards to take a break from their all to important campaigning and go to their job (they are Senators you know, not just candidates). It seems like this shows a good deal of irresponsibility on their part. Do you really want them running the country? They can’t even go to their current job in the government.
