Whats Old is New Again?

See this.

A coalition of anti-war groups is vowing to protest this summer’s Democratic National Convention in Denver under the rubric “Re-create ’68,” prompting criticism from some on the left who are loath to revisit what they see as a disastrous time for both the anti-war movement and the Democratic Party.

With Winter Soldier II coming next month the above would be a fine way for some to grasp another few minutes of faded glory.

Life Happens

So I have had to cancel my trip to DC next month. I may try for a truncated visit, but the likelihood is diminishing with each day.

The mission matters, but life intrudes. In this case in the form of a Mother-in-Law who we may need to house and take care of.

MIL is in a nursing home in Ohio. This un-named nursing home chooses to deal drugs instead of care.

Now, my MIL is curmudgeonly (read cranky) with several health problems of note, but quality of life is what we've been trying to find for her and keeping her doped up seems to be the game plan.

So we're quickly remodeling what was to be my shop in our garage into a small apartment. The rest of our construction is coming to a halt in this effort. As does other aspects of our lives.

There's no resentment involved on my part... this could be me in a few years. However, there is some frustration. It seems we can't move her to another care home and none of the rest of the family seems willing to step up. So we have to move her four hours away from them to see that she gets cared for.

Again!!! So sayeth Don Feder.

It happens I agree, but bust his chops rather than mine.

Myself, I'll do what I must come November and you'll do what you must.

My mind is Made Up (or out of cream cheeze)

I don't get a vote once a gain... Super(?) Tuesday is around the corner and it's supposed to be the final shakeout prior to the conventions.

Likely pairings and my response come November:

McCain v. Clinton - Stay at home and drink beer in preparation for the fallout.

McCain v. Obama - Vote for Obama. His lack of Washington/political experience is good enough for me.

Romney v. Clinton - Vote for Romney. Lesser of two evils yet again.

Romney v. Obama - Toss a coin, but probably vote Romney simply out of habit.

I common enough, and I know what I want, do you?
