McCain’s ‘Obama Is An Arab’ – Lady

Gayle Quinnell, McCain supporter, volunteer and idiot

You look like a nice grandmother knitting sweaters for your grandchildren, but then I learned that you are mailing out smear letters for the McCain campaign and I saw you on national TV spewing hatred at one of McCain’s rallies in Minnesota, calling Barack an ‘Arab’ and even though McCain corrected your statement, you still called Barack a ‘Muslim Terrorist’ when interviewed after the rally.  How can a nice little old lady be so hateful?  I just have one message for you and your fellow McCain supporters who seem to have checked their brains at the door (and I’m trying to be as diplomatic as I possibly can):

MA’AM, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

Instead of just watching Fox News and listening to hateful diatribes from right-wing radio talk show hosts, why don’t you try to get information from a variety of sources?  There is absolutely no reason for anybody to be this uninformed with so many different news sources out there.  Maybe then you can start thinking for yourself and form your own opinion?  Believe me, that is actually possible.  After watching you and your fellow McCain supporters, I am just glad, and the polls seem to agree, that you belong to a dwindling breed.

As much as Gayle can claim ignorance, there’s just no excuse for the head of the Virginia GOP Jeffrey M. Frederick comparing Barack Obama to Osama Bin Laden.  Jeffrey, you ought to be ashamed of yourself!

BOTTOM LINE:

MCCAIN/PALIN CAMPAIGN IN SHORT:  

He’s definitely black;
probably Muslim;
and maybe a terrorist. — Josh Marshall,

JOHN AND SARAH, YOU CAN BE SO VERY PROUD OF YOURSELVES!

Sarah Palin And Michele Bachmann, Two Certified Morons

‘We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very pro-American areas of this great nation.’ — Sarah Palin in North Carolina.

Michele Bachmann, 6th District, Minnesota, suggested on a national TV show that Barack Obama might hold ‘anti-American views’ and wanted members of Congress investigated to see whether they are ‘pro-American’ or ‘anti-American.’

I guess the pro-American areas are the rural red states with small towns and the Republicans residing there which amount to, let’s be generous here, about 30% of the population.  And then the rest of us, the vast majority, are ‘anti-American, terrorist-loving, America-hating, socialists.’  Well, all right then.

Do we live in ‘Stupidistan?’  And is that located in the pro-American or the anti-American part of America?   🙂

De-Stress At Work

If you’re like me, you feel a little stressed out lately.  While we can’t avoid stress completely, it is important that we find ways to deal with it more effectively as it can be a contributing factor in more than 80% of illnesses.  The following are simple suggestions on how to deal better with stress at work.

*  Create a neat and organized workplace

Keep your workplace always neat and organized.  Nothing is more stressful than if you can’t find something one minute before you have to go into a meeting.  Surround yourself with beautiful things that give you joy, make you feel good and inspire you, like pictures of your kids and pets, plants, a cartoon, smiley face or anything that makes you laugh and smile.

*  Have an active lunch

Instead of sitting in a crowded restaurant for lunch, why not take a healthy lunch you prepared the day before and opt for physical activity instead?  The easiest exercise would be to take a brisk walk.  You can do it anywhere and only need some comfortable shoes.  Depending on the time you have, you could also go to the gym and work out, etc.  Whatever suits you–and take your co-workers with you!

*  Get a chair massage

Make a suggestion to have a massage therapist come to your office from time to time to give fifteen minute chair massages.  Not only will it relax your tight neck and shoulder muscles and improve your overall well being, but statistics have also shown that it will increase productivity levels in employees (which provides a great selling point to your boss).

*  Delegate as much as possible

If you are the boss/manager/supervisor, you don’t have to do it all yourself!  Delegate as much as you can in good conscience.  Not only will the people you work with appreciate the trust you place in them and will feel that they also have a stake in the success of the business, but it will help de-stress your life and you can concentrate on what is important to you while others work on issues they are perfectly able to handle.

*  Stay away from toxic co-workers

In every workplace, there seems to be somebody, sometimes more than one person, who radiates negativity, tries to engage people in vicious gossip, tries to play one against the other, tries to drag people down.  Stay away from that person as much as you can.  If you think you are that person, please read my suggestions on how to become happy, by visiting my website  www.FitwithAndrea.com  and click on ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy!’  

*  Recharge your battery

Take a few minutes from time to time throughout the day to take a break.  Get up and walk around, stretch your body and do some deep-breathing exercises.  Your body and mind will thank you for it.

*  Limit emails

Find ways to limit email use.  Don’t let email take over your life!

*  Carpool

If possible, try to find other people to carpool with, use public transportation or ride your bike.

Most of all:  Enjoy life!  Life is truly beautiful!   🙂

Fit, Sexy and Happy At Any Age!

Has this ever happened to you?  Somebody enters the room and you think to yourself ‘Wow!  What a presence that person has!’  And you notice how other people stop what they’re doing to look at the person as well.  If you would ask them, most people probably couldn’t tell you why exactly he or she draws all this attention.  Often they don’t even fit the stereotypical ‘beauty standard,’ and yet, there is something about them that makes them sexy and attractive to other people.  It almost feels like there is an aura around them.  What exactly is going on here?

Well, let me tell you a little secret:  It’s a mindset.  People who feel comfortable with themselves are generally happy and radiate positive energy wherever they go.  That in turn is being picked up by others and makes that person attractive, even sexy to them.  From a confident walk, to sparkling eyes, to a radiant smile, you can tell they feel good about themselves and it shows.

George Clooney and Queen Latifah are perfect examples for what I just described.  When they show up, people take notice.  You just know they are self-confident and like themselves, have a positive attitude, laugh often and enjoy life, and that makes them very attractive and sexy.

Now, you also can be fit, sexy and happy, no matter what age you are.  As I mentioned, it’s a mindset and a matter of attitude, and you can achieve it by developing a healthy lifestyle, getting in shape with a fit body, de-stressing and simplifying your life, and creating a positive mindset.  And when you do, you will find the  FIT, SEXY AND HAPPY  person that is already inside you just waiting to be awakened.  Visit my website   www.FitwithAndrea.com   and find out how.   🙂

Things Hanging From A Rear View Mirror


Okay, will somebody please explain this picture to me:  While waiting at a stop light right behind a pickup truck, I noticed something hanging from the guy’s rear view mirror.  At first glance it looked like some type of Christmas decoration.  But the second look revealed a pair of brass balls, cojones, or whatever name you like, dangling right next to the guy’s head.  In this part of the country you are confronted with all kinds of things but this was a first for me.   🙂

Now, while chuckling at the sight of these enormous testicles, I was wondering about the message he wanted to send:

a)  I wish I had a pair this big!
b)  My wife cut them off and all I can do is drive around next to them and insist that they are really mine!
c)  Redneck Christmas decoration
d)  Compensation for a small penis
e)  I don’t need a gun rack with my pickup truck, thank you very much, I have a pair of steel balls!
f)  Hey girls, see what you’re missing! ….. Same thing I’m missing!
g)  I entered a contest to be a Chippendale dancer and all I got was a pair of these!
h)  You may not like the look of them, but they have a wonderful scent!

Any suggestions?   🙂

I have yet to wait for the day when a woman decides to display a pair of fake boobs dangling from her rear view mirror.

By the way:  For the brass ball lovers among you and for everybody else who would like to view a gallery of shiny testicles in various colors and sizes in pure amazement, I found this website   www.bullsballs.com .

ENJOY!!!

My Ugly Confrontation With A McCain Supporter

“My statement was a reminder to all Americans that toxic language can lead to destructive behavior.” — Rep. John Lewis, Veteran of the Civil Rights Movement

In light of the recent events at the McCain/Palin KKK rallies, I decided to repost one of my blog entries which in retrospect is very telling of the character of some of the people we see at these rallies.  McCain and Palin with their hateful rhetoric are bringing to the forefront a hatred and racism that is bubbling right below the surface of some people as the following incident clearly demonstrates.  By the way, the entry is from July 22, well before the VP selection, the conventions, and the events of the past few weeks, just right after we knew that it would be a McCain/Obama match-up.  Here it is, word for word:

IGNORANCE

After having come to America from Germany in 1991 and making this city my home, every once in a while I am being reminded that you run into ignorance no matter where you choose to live.  One of those times was a few weeks ago when after a traffic altercation causing me to almost hit the guy cutting right in front of me, I ended up sitting next to him at the stop light that he got caught by only a few hundred yards down the road.  Isn’t it always like that?  Anyway, don’t ask me why I even looked over to him.  I guess I heard him yelling something.  And don’t ask me why I even rolled my window down.  I couldn’t exactly understand what he was yelling, so all I said was ‘I don’t know why you are yelling at me, you were the one almost causing the accident!’

Well, naturally, he picked up on my accent and yelled over ‘Why don’t you go back to Russia?’  Here also, I don’t know why I even corrected him, but after hearing ‘Germany,’ he started this hateful barrage at me including the three words he knew about Germany, two of them being ‘Heil Hitler’ and all kinds of obscenities, telling me how glad he was that America had destroyed Germany in the war and on and on and on.  I literally was completely speechless and just looked at him thinking that this guy certainly was a walking time bomb with all this hatred.  Anyway, at that point I had reached my daily limit of being subjected to ignorance and started to let my window up and just let him know that I was glad that he is not representative of his fellow Americans.  And I thought about an incident we just had a few days prior to that where a woman shot somebody after a traffic incident.  I looked at him and wondered about the irony if his ancestors had emigrated from Germany!

I had my window almost completely up when I heard him yelling ‘John McCain, John McCain!’  And then it was clear to me that my ‘Obama’ sticker most likely was the initial cause of his hateful diatribe.  Now I just hope that he is not representative of his fellow McCain supporters!

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Naturally, looking at the racism and hatred incited by McCain/Palin and expressed by their supporters over the past few weeks, the hope stated in my last sentence was a bit optimistic.  Unfortunately, we all know now that this character indeed is representative of a large portion of his fellow McCain supporters.

Bottom line:  Barack Obama brings out the best in people.  John McCain brings out the worst in people.

Sarah Palin In 2012? – Republican Party R.I.P.

The reports of tensions between the ‘Rogue Diva’ and John McCain come a little early, usually that doesn’t become public until after the defeat is finalized.  It’s an indication that everybody wants to position themselves as soon as possible to point fingers and blame others.  McCain, I’m sure, wants to salvage whatever is left of his reputation after his hateful and negative campaign and in the end, his responsibility of having picked a totally unqualified person as his VP candidate.  Sarah Palin, However, the $150,000 hockey mom, might have other ambitions.  There are rumors of her going rogue and staging an insurgency within the McCain camp, disregarding her handlers and advisers.  That can only mean one thing, positioning herself for:

SARAH  PALIN  IN  2012 !!!

If that indeed should be the case, we can collectively pick out a headstone for the Republican party, reading ‘GOP – R.I.P.’ ….. For a decade, or even an entire generation.  I have a sense that we will be witnessing something close to a civil war within the Republican party, starting on November 5th, the day after the election.  And it’s going to be a fight for the soul of the Republican party.  If you look back in history when one or the other party found themselves in the wilderness, that’s what always happened and often it took quite some time before that particular party managed to come back.  The Republican party of today faces such a dilemma that definitely will require deep soul searching and an all out fight between the various factions, and maybe that’s a good thing.

SEARCHING  FOR  THE  SOUL  OF  THE  REPUBLICAN  PARTY !!!

The ever shrinking base consists almost exclusively of evangelical extremists and the racist and nutjob anti-intellectuals we have been witnessing at the McCain and Palin rallies lately.  Sarah Palin is their ‘star’ because she is one of them.  However, other Republicans and everybody else are completely turned off by these radicals and their ‘hero’ Sarah Palin.  So, with this base alone and Sarah Palin as their pick for 2012, the Republican party will remain in the wilderness for a long, long time.  If they want to avoid that prospect, it seems to me that the rest of the party will have to figure out over time how to become relevant again with the ‘normal’ Conservatives and Intellectuals being in charge without alienating the base because they still will need their votes.  The first step to that recovery from an almost certain rout on November 4th will be to

NOMINATE  SOMEBODY  ELSE  IN  2012 !!!

Just a thought.  Not that we particularly care.  

Message to Sarah:  Sorry, you only get one chance to make an initial impression and after flirting with you at first, we have discovered your real character and it’s not a pretty picture.  Sarah, we’re just not that much into you and decided we should start seeing other people.  You probably will be going back to your old boyfriend ‘Alaska,’ but after all that has happened over the past few weeks, the reunion may not be as sweet as you like.  

SARAH  PALIN  HAS  BECOME  SUCH  A  DRAG  ON  MCCAIN,  SHE’S  HIS  ‘DRAG  QUEEN.’   🙂
