TOPIC: John Kerry & Metal Fatigue
This isn't a political blog, but let's go ahead and get something straight. John Kerry is a liar. He has very little credibility and no real platform to run on. For instance, you can't vote for the war in Iraq and then talk trash against it. You can't vote for NAFTA (which sent hundreds of thousands of jobs streaming out of the US) then talk about creating jobs while stumping in the industrial North. If you do, Mr. Kerry, you're a liar and you have NO credibility. Yes, President Bush has his own problems and shortcomings, but at least he has integrity in his words. We may not always like what he does, but we CAN count on him to try and do what he says he'll do -- even if he has to go it alone.

I have heard about and read about blogging for months, but never thought I'd actually become a blogger myself. What did I have to write that people would want to read? Maybe nothing -- possibly something. I've always enjoyed debate and small group discussion -- including "soapbox" topics. Now, I blog...
