Barack’s Pre-Presidential Address

Last night (October 29th) Barack Obama addressed the American nation on 7 television networks with a half hour “infomercial” that drew an “American Idol”-sized audience delaying the baseball World Series. (some saying that this very act was un-american *rolls eyes* Palin *cough*)

More than 33.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the Democratic presidential nominee give a clear representation of his message and plans for his precidency. A large portion of this is spent showing real people with real problems. I commend the Obama campaign for taking the time to do this. There is alot of talk out there but only the people truly going through these every day problems actually know how bad the economy really is, how hard life is these days.

I know there is alot of speculation about Obama’s bank roll, the fact that he paid each network easily a million a peice to do this is in my humble opinion, admirable and exactly why Obama should win. He didnt use his money for special interests, he used it to support his message for change, the way he should.

Here’s the infomercial, the Obama campaign posted it on youtube:

Again I feel I must say, As a Canadian, I truly would be happier to see to Obama as the American President over McCain any day, 8 years of Bush Policy has affected Canada and another 4 years of the same policy will trickle down and continue to make things worse…Obama wants to look out for America, for the world. He’s worried about the people that need to be worried about and I for one truly encourage all American’s to look and see what your future could be. Give your children a chance for change. Give the rest of us a chance for change. Think of your fellow Earthican’s America (*yay futurama reference*)

Only 5 days left, lets hope they end well.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Family Guy = <3, Palin = :(

As a big Seth MacFarlane fan I’ve seen almost every (if not every) episode of Family Guy, most of American Dad and am even subscribed to his channel on youtube. I’ve yet to come across the Cleveland Show tho…

But As of tonight’s Family guy episode I’m just incredibly fanstruck!

Road to Germany  (From Tv.Com)

While looking for the bathroom, Mort Goldman accidentally steps into Stewie’s time machine and winds up in 1939 Poland in the middle of the Nazi invasion. Brian and Stewie follow him to Nazi Germany in an attempt to save him and bring him back to the present safely.

Everything from the cheap Jew jokes, to a poke at about why America won’t invade Germany (No oil)

And one particular scene that deserves to be noted, ONLY Seth MacFarlane could get away with this:

Freakin Hilarious! The American Election is just about 2 weeks away, this was the perfect time to associate McCain/Palin with Nazi Germany. Might as well of had Hitler come on screen and say “Hi my Name is Adolf Hitler and I approved this Message” Just Brilliant.

Which leads me to my next bit of randomness…

Sarah Palin was a guest on SNL this weekend….and I have to say that Tina Fey makes a better Sarah Palin then Sarah Palin does! lol It opens with Tina Fey portraying her at a mock Press confrence in front of the studio audience. Her first line: “First off, I just want to say how excited I am to be in front of both the liberal elite media as well as the liberal regular media,” said Fey. “I am looking forward to a portion of your questions.”

Moments later the real Palin is speaking to executive producer Lorne Michaels “You know, Lorne, I just don’t think it’s a realistic depiction of the way my press conferences would have gone,” Then the left-leaning Alec Baldwin then stumbled on stage, mistook Palin for Fey, and pleaded with Michaels not to let the two women share a platform. “This is the most important election in our nation’s history and you want her, our Tina, to … stand with that horrible woman?” (LMAO) Soon Lorne Micheals introduces Palin to Alec Baldwin who quickly says “I see. Forgive me. I feel I must say this: You are way hotter in person.”

Shortly afterwards, Palin walked on to the fake news conference set to deliver the programme’s stock opening line. “No, I’m not going to take any of your questions,” she told a cheering studio audience. “But I do want to take this opportunity to say, ‘Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night’.”

Her final appearance came in the closing skit, a mock news sketch in which Amy Poehler, launched into an extended, Eminem-style rap, about Palin’s folksy campaign, with lyrics that included “from my porch I can see, Russia and such.” Palin was supposed to do the skit herself but had decided before airing that it would hurt the campaign..The Rap ended with a large moose dancing on the set, followed by the sound of gunshots, a joke poking at Palin’s fondness for hunting. Throughout the sketch, Palin rocked back and forth in her anchor seat, pumping her arms in the air, like the lame teacher at a brightly-lit school disco. *rolls eyes*

I unfortunatly can not find any video’s of Palin’s appearance that I can post on here but here are the links to NBC, I’ll edit this post if I find any on youtube etc…Enjoy and Thanks for reading!

Joe the Plumber

From the New York Times:

His rise was swift and somewhat unexpected: overnight, it seemed, the lowly plumber had been elevated from the man with soaring fees and sagging pants to an emblem of the American working class.

Vinnie DiRoma, 48, a plumber for 17 years for the George Breslaw & Sons plumbing company, working on the West Side.

To Senators John McCain and Barack Obama, who studded their discussions at Wednesday night’s presidential debate with fawning references to “Joe the Plumber,” the once-derided tradesman was a classic hands-on hero, a celebrated common man, the sort of guy who puts the “I can” back into American.

But to plumbers around New York, the quick ascent seemed a good deal more complex. Granted, they said, the political machine had seized them as a symbol. But of what?

You can still find “the chubby guy with the cigar,” said Gil Perez, a Staten Island plumber who holds a law degree, “but it’s really not like that anymore. Plumbers today are businessmen. Some are metrosexuals. Especially in New York City, they’re not what you think.”

What many people think — at least according to the old cliché — is that your average plumber is essentially a schlub. He spends his days beneath your sink or peering into the clogged bowl of your toilet. His work is dirty; his fingernails are rough.

He is not — traditionally speaking — the sort of man to make an offhand reference to the black-tie affair he recently attended at the New York Public Library, as did Richard Breslaw of the George Breslaw & Sons plumbing company in Manhattan. Mr. Breslaw recounted how he charmed a young woman at the function by referring to his job as “the first thing you think about when you wake up.”

Long the object of putdowns and distasteful humor — Mr. Breslaw cited the classic “If you don’t go to high school, guess what you become?” — plumbers are, in many cases, exceedingly well paid. Mr. Breslaw said that one of his top men “clears two, maybe two-and-a-quarter” every year. He even paraphrased Einstein: “If I had my life to live over again, I’d be a plumber.”

It’s probably fair to say that plumbers like this are not what the candidates had in mind. Indeed, when Sarah Palin, Mr. McCain’s running mate, said on Thursday that she wanted to cut taxes because “we think like Joe or Jane the Plumber,” she was referring to a certain version.

One, perhaps, like Anthony Caiazzo, a Brooklyn plumber so well versed in politics that, completely unbidden, he answered a reporter’s call by saying, “Joe the Plumber here.” Mr. Caiazzo is somewhere in the middle of his field: “a blue-collar guy,” he said, who happens to have a 4,000-square-foot office, where on occasion he has been known to appear in a suit and tie.

As for big-picture politics, the national plumbers’ union has endorsed Senator Obama, saying he “has always fought for working people throughout his career.” George W. Reilly, business manager of the New York local, was reached by cellphone Thursday morning and said that in the industry, Joe the Plumber was all the rage.

“We’re not unhappy with the situation,” said Mr. Reilly, who was at a plumbers’ conference in Cooperstown, N.Y. “Raising public recognition of a trade that’s been around for thousands of years is pretty interesting.”

Of course, it’s possible that today’s Joe the Plumber will end up like yesterday’s Wal-Mart Dad or the day before that’s Soccer Mom — a symbol that seemed prescient at the moment it was coined, but grew to tire over time. In fact, the real Joe the Plumber, Samuel J. Wurzelbacher of Ohio, has already had his taxes and apparent lack of a license examined by the news media — the other side of fame.

At least for the moment, though, his less illustrious colleagues seemed to be basking in a tardy glow of celebration.

“I take it as a compliment,” Mr. Caiazzo said. “Joe the Plumber is blue collar — we’re blue collar. We might own the business, but realistically most of us came up in the trenches.”

“Being Joe the Plumber,” he went on, “I’m O.K. with that.”

Personally, while it does shed light on one of many jobs out there that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves, I still think its pathetic that someone so hardworking is being used as a politcal ploy…its all because Palin decided to use the phrase “we think like Joe or Jane the Plumber” …

(They found Joe so where’s Jane? lol)

McCain and Palin obviously don’t think like the Middle Class…I’m sure that Sarah Palin has had to struggle to put food on the table to feed her kids…I’m sure that she’s done things she’s not proud of just to get by…and ofcourse I’m sure on her nice big government salary that she’s had to go to thrift stores to find clothes, gone to walmart for school supplies etc…yep Sarah Palin is the perfect poster girl for poverty and the common man….*rolls eyes*

Only a few more weeks of this gong show left folks…Hopefully America will choose the right Canidate 🙂

Take Care 🙂 (And Vote OBAMA)



Sarah McCain Palin Ciptak

Layla Ciptak thought she and her husband had settled on the name “Ava Grace Ciptak” for their baby daughter, but Mark Ciptak had an entirely different idea, now their baby daughter’s birth certificate reads: “Sarah McCain Palin Ciptak” The Republican supporter wanted “to get the word out” about John McCain and Sarah Palin and encourage people to vote for them. “I took one for the cause,” he said. An American Red Cross employee, Mr Ciptak told the Kingsport Times-News that he had limited cash to donate to the McCain-Palin campaign and the baby naming was a “little token” instead. “It’s something that I did to help out the campaign and the cause.”

At first, he chickened out of telling his wife. “As of right now, I’m just trying to get up enough nerve to tell her what I’ve done and hope for the best. I hope I’m still living to tell the tale tomorrow. She thought it was a done deal with Ava Grace, Only some friends and family members who I have called for prayer support know at this point.” He did tell her later. “I don’t think she believes me yet. It’s going to take some more convincing” and then added “I do have a sign up in my yard, but I can do very little. Is this going to change the course of the election? I doubt it.”

I Can’t believe this Election…could there be anymore Hype? its so sad that John McCain is going to win, and you want to know how? Probally not even by actual vote…I was watching CNN this morning and it turns out that there are alot of vote count issue’s in atleast half of the american states…everything from audit procedures to electronic vote count errors, and Election officials have known about this since 2000…

Sarah Palin action figure’s, movie and now a namesake…what’s next?

Please please please Americans, vote for Obama, atleast try to change your future. I know Canada is stuck with the same policy for the next 4 years (Stephan Harper Relected *rolls eyes*) doesnt mean you have to be…

Peace 🙂



Here he comes to save the Day!

Dear Lovely Readers,

I’ve been quiet as of late as I’ve been moving but rest assured more posts of randomness are on their way 🙂 Thanks for the emails asking where i’ve been, its nice to be missed 🙂

So without further ado…

In the spirit of all things random, A tribute to Mighty Mouse!

From 1942, the Very first Mighty Mouse Cartoon..

In a town called Mouseville, the cats spend all their time chasing mice. The cats capture all the mice except for one; the little fellow escapes and finds himself in a supermarket. He bathes in super soap, he eats super celery, and he dines on super cheese— and behold: Mighty Mouse is born!

The very first Mighty Mouse (here called Super Mouse) cartoon was Created by I. (Izzy) Klein in the spring of 1940, this character was originally designed as a fly. Paul Terry liked the concept, and green-lighted the project after changing the fly to a mouse called, “Super Mouse.” After two years on the screen, the Super Mouse name was changed to Mighty Mouse. Some reports are that the threat of a lawsuit from DC Comics was behind this name change. Others insist that Terry did not want to compete against a character of the same name that an ex-TerryToons employee drew for Coo Coo Comics. In any case, in 1944, the character’s name was changed, and the Super Mouse cartoons were retitled to the new name.
THE MOUSE OF TOMORROW!

Hope you’ve all enjoyed it 🙂 And don’t forget to get your super food at the super market 😉

Vice Presidential Debate – SNL Style

SNL’s opening sketch last night of the VP debate was Hilarious thanks to Fey’s once again brilliant Palin impression. Winking and giving answers not always directly related to Queen Latifah’s (moderator Gwen Ifill) questions, Fey’s Palin said that if she was elected, her decisions would be guided by considering “what would a maverick do?” She also Thanked America for letting her speak without a media filter that asked pesky followup questions and cared about facts. At the end of the segment, she even asked with flute in hand, “Are we not doing the talent portion?” (Palin was runnerup in the 1984 Miss Alaska contest)

*LMAO*

Tina Fey, Your my Hero ❤

Enjoy 😀
