People need to stop talking on their phones sans Bluetooth. Talking on the phone is so obviously distracting and it annoys me that these people think it's okay to talk on their phones while driving and swerving in their lanes. I don't want to die because of some other person's failure to comply with the law. Thanks.
But, besides seeing people lobbying for the legalization of pot (i.e. Marijuana) this weekend, I hope Chelsea Clinton had a fantastic wedding - it was indeed her special day.
On another note, I'm happy to hear that President Obama is bringing our troops home within his new 19-month (as opposed to the original 16-month) timeline. The troop withdrawal will minimize the numbers from approximately 170,000 troops to about 30,000. These remaining 30,000 troops of brave men and women will be responsible for aiding in the continuing project of rebuilding Iraq and dealing with terrorist groups. All American troops will be out of there by the end of 2011, according to the agreement between former President George W. Bush and the Iraqis. After a long war, if you can really call it that, I'm glad these people are allowed to finally come home.
But, then of course I had to be reminded of the fact that President Obama has increased the number of troops by 30,000 in Afghanistan - it's a 9-year project over there, folks. I suppose the fighting never ends in this world, but I wish that the United States didn't have to so often be a part of it.
Nevertheless, I hope people don't continue to disrespect the troops fighting overseas by saying this fighting is futile - each man and woman is sacrificing his/her time and putting his/her life on the line for the United States of America.
I'm grateful....are you, America?
