Too Close for Comfort

***This election is way too close for comfort. Another four years of Obama would be absolutely disastrous for this country. I really can't fathom why it is so close, Obama is such an obvious failure. What are people thinking?

***C'mon, did you really expect anything different? 

Reporting the release of the new Obama agenda two weeks out from the election, CNN's Jessica Yellin came out visibly annoyed: "There's not anything significantly new in here, it's just all compiled in a nice booklet now."

***Mitt did well in the debate last night, Obama was his usual self - an ass.

***Just another small-minded liberal. Don't sweat it, Ann.

However, the fashion world has remained particularly quiet on the Ann Romney fashion front, with many questioning whether or not outspoken Obama supporter Anna Wintour is keeping stylists and designers away, silently threatening their standing should they endeavor to promote their outfitting of the wife of a Republican presidential hopeful.

***Need more proof that liberalism is a mental disorder?


Imagine if the tables were turned. Think there'd be a bit more coverage?

***Cute costumes!

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,

"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.


He said, "Please excuse me too;

I wasn't watching for you."


We were very polite, this stranger and I.

We went on our way and we said goodbye.



But at home a different story is told,

How we treat our loved ones, young and old

.
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,

My son stood beside me very still.


When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
"Move out of the way," I said with a frown.



He walked away, his little heart broken.

I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.


While I lay awake in bed,

God's still small voice came to me and said,


"While dealing with a stranger, 
common courtesy you use, 

but the family you love, you seem to abuse.



Go and look on the kitchen floor,

You'll find some flowers there by the door.


Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.


He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,

you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes
.
By this time, I felt very small,

And now my tears began to fall.


I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.


"Are these the flowers you picked for me?

"
He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.


I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue.
I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;

I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.


He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway."
I said, "Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue."
