new middle, farmers, hurricane, fb musing

this debt limit crisis is making me fed up with politics
dont mess with our economy
both political parties are to blame
neither side should get a free pass on this
this is how washington doesnt work

the republicans have become too far to the right on issues and
the democrats are too far to the left
its the middle america that decides every election
they just seem to pick the lesser of two evils

always said we need a new party called the middle party
because thats where most of us are politically
the only problem is that this party would always dominate
the democrats and republicans as both would be always
out numbered

well apparently according to this article in the new york times
-make way for the radical middle-there is a new party
forming for the next election on the internet
the first state ballot they will be on is in california
could this be the start of that third party that we probably
need to balance out all those special interests that really
run things on both sides now

the website is called http://www.americanselect.org/
it may be a good start to a fresh approach to politics

its so hot and dry here now that we all are suffering from the
heat (my lower porch at 6 am was still warm from the day before
it already started out in the mid 80s in the cool of the early am)

the farmers are really suffering
some have even shut down production for the fall
they have to plant now for the fall season
tuff to do in this hot dry weather

support them at your farmers markets as much as possible
we dont want to lose them and have to totally depend on
whoever and wherever produces those veggies at the grocery store

we need rain
our hope lies in a hurricane developing in the gulf
well that tropical wave has gone from yellow to red and
from a 10% chance to a 70% chance and is headed our way
hopefully it doesnt get diverted by that big high thats making
us all suffer
stay tuned

thanks nm and ag for this one
be tender to the young, compassionate to the aged, and
tolerant to the weak as you will all three in your lifetime
