Lost Ideals...





The human told me that when she was young the country was going through a transition.
The times they were a changing...
She told me how you stopped a war, fought for civil rights, started recycling and the peace corps.
You sent a man to the moon!
It was a time of great optimism...
There was a desire to embrace the world and all of it's diversity...

Forty five years later a lot of those very same people are now isolationists and intolerant.
They have become judgmental and angry.
They want to take their country back.
They want to make America great again...

Mean while over in Britain, they have voted to leave the EU.
Everybody wants to build walls and reinstate boarders.
Somehow that's the answer to everything that's wrong.

Personally I can't figure out what the heck changed. I asked a few people and heard the same thing;
"we grew up". Pardon my French but that sounds like a load of crap.

I think it's a shame that you did all that work and fought so hard just to throw it all away because it didn't turn out exactly the way you thought it would be.

For those of you who are old enough to remember, here's a little something to remind you what you were fighting for and if you who are to young to remember, you should take a listen too;

Maybe with a little deeper thought and the right words and music, it will all come back to you.
In the end the world is only what you make it...

Oh, The Irony...

 
 
 



 
 
Isn't it ironic? Donald Trump ads compare him to a lion...both his sons hunt and kill big game in Africa, lions among them...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
After the killing of Cecil the lion, Donald Trump defended his sons killing of big game;

 
  

 
 
 
 
 

Just something to think about...



We would like to send or thoughts and prayers to the victims and their friends and families in Orlando, Florida. And to all those that this terrible tragedy has touched...
We are so very tired of writing posts addressing these types of events.
There have been far to many;
 
 
 
But now there may be a glimmer of hope.
Did you know that usually in congress Filibusters, even when tried, don't work.
But Thursday Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut stood for 15 hours unrelentingly and passionately speaking out for the victims of gun violence.
 
 
All he was asking for was a vote.
 
Over forty senators both democrat and republican ended up joining him and in the end their efforts paid off.
There will be a vote on back ground checks and on the no fly, no buy law which would make it illegal for persons on the terror watch list not to be able to purchase guns.
Yes, right now it's legal!
 




Have a wonderful weekend!

Historic Moments ...





Noodle thought; "When things seem beyond our reach we just have to try a little harder. Some of the hardest things to obtain are the most important..."


 

Which brings me to this;

‘HER!’: Newspaper front pages laud Hillary Clinton’s historic nomination

Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, Independent or other, whether you love her or hate her; remember this moment it is historic.

And in case you don't think a woman is up for the job, don't forget;







Have a wonderful weekend!

You've Got To Kiss A Lot Of Frogs......



                                                                    ( not Noodle )


March 23rd 2015 Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to announce he was running for president in 2016.
To put that in perspective that's one year, two months and eleven days ago...ah, seems like only yesterday ( if you have amnesia ).

We have since witnessed 17 republican candidates and 5 democrats vie for the title of  nominee of their respective parties.
So, yes we have kissed a lot of frogs but to what end?
Where is our white knight? Where is the happily ever after?
Seems like all we got for our trouble was a whole bunch of warts!

In keeping with our complete and unbiased objectivity, this week we take a look at Hillary...

First there are the main talking points;

The biggest complain being people don't think she's trustworthy.
Then there is, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!
Those Pesky e-mails.
Bill and his indiscretions with the ladies.
She's not warm and fuzzy.
She's not humble enough.

Hillary is like any other politician in that she has her share of warts.
Show me a politician who doesn't.
She's too defensive.
She doesn't have a sparkling personality.
She is a Washington insider.

But, ask yourself this simple question;
If I need medical attention would I go to Dr. Hillary or Mr. Trump?
Sure Mr.Trump says he knows what he's doing ( "trust me") but he has no medical degree and the closest thing he has to one is the fact that he played the game Operation really well when he was a kid.
DR. Hillary on the other hand does have a degree and plenty of experience.
She may not have a great bedside manner and I may not want to have a beer with her but she will save my life...
Not so hard to decide anymore is it?
And if you think because she's a woman she isn't tough enough; check this out...

My opinion; we need a president who is knowledgeable, fierce and will get the job done.
And has a record to back that up.
In this era of us all wanting the wow factor from a candidate, it might be wise to think long and hard about what we really want from the person who leads our country and not so much about how entertaining or likeable they are.

So yes, it's been a long ride and it's not over yet.
We've had to kiss a lot of frogs along the way and there is probably still more puckering to come.
We still have 5 months of this crap left!

We hope that Noodle's blog has helped sort through the slog of information out there and in the process has been as fair and bipartisan as we possibly could. We have truly made an effort to do so.

We will try to keep on top of all the candidates and their policies as well as bring you bits and pieces that may have slipped through the cracks or are just plain interesting.

We hope that you will always feel comfortable and free to call us out if you think we have misrepresented someone or something.
Politics should be discussed not screamed in anger or bullied into submission...

The most important thing any of us can do is VOTE. It's easy to get fed up with the process, throw your hands up and walk away.
But that just leaves a bigger mess later on down the road.




Have a wonderful weekend!
