Guarantees in Life

During the Super Bowl, last January, Clint Eastwood appeared in ad that seems to suggest he was an Obama supporter and folks were surprised. Many cried fowl saying the commerial, albeit for Chrysler motors was inappropriate and should not have been a political statement. Well, lo and behold, just recently Clint Eastwood came out with his public endorsement for Mitt Romney and tonight at the Republic National Convention he is making a public appearance. I find it amusing that so many people are jumping to conclusions about who is doing what for who and why... which reminds me of this quote by Clint Eastwood himself. "if you want a guarantee in life- buy a toaster" Funny I didn't know toasters still came with a guarantee- that alone is enough for me to go out tomorrow and buy one.

I was surprised, but only because I had seen the show featuring his wife: Mrs. Eastwood and Company. In it, his wife appears to be rather liberal, opening her home to their children's friends and to a band that she is helping out; got her belly button pierce just to keep her daughter from doing the same; and other similar situations, so I was expecting him to be a bit more liberal. That's ok...I think it would have been livened up had they allowed Nugent to be there. I might have even popped over to watch (but my football team is playing pre-season and I'd rather support them).

I just couldn't believe all the hype over it and I am so tired of the hype from both sides. I too, would rather watch football. Dare I ask what team you support? Depending on which team, the discussion could get alot more heated than any political debate.

Every time I mention them, I'm mocked. They've gone to the big dance twice, yet never manage to finish what they start. I can't help it-I bleed green for the Eagles (I grew up 13 miles outside of the city, over the border, plus my mom was one too). Silly Cowgirls fans laugh at me, but um, when was the last time they got to the NFC Championship game? A lot longer than the Birds, if my research is correct. But that's ok-I'm enjoying the game with my dog Yoda. He just hates dancing with me and the Eagles gnome my boyfriend got me last year-I think he's scared of it!

I guess it ok to dance for the Eagles. It is certainly better than cheering for the Lions. I used to live in Michigan but was never a Lions fan. Heh- have fun with it- life is to short not too.

These days people are changing their minds and their allegiances as often as they change their underwear. THis is both a good thing and a bad thing. It is good because it means people are at least thinking and not just going down the same old track because that is what their dad did and that is what they have always done. It is bad because it means there is no real loyalty anymore and people will jump ship at the slightest provocation or when the next best thing comes along. It is that way in relationships, politics, sports. We don't know how to stick it out anymore.

So true. I usually stay away from controversial subjects as one never know how someone is going to respond. They either love em or hate em and sometimes you just don't know what to say. People change their minds and it seems really don't give serious issues serious thinking. Sadly, a sign of the times.

It seems to me that people are constantly speculating about other people's political standings and in many situations, it turns out that those speculations are completely wrong. With that said, I could care less who stands up for which politician because I'm not a person that is very politically inclined. As far as guarantees in life, I know that there are really no guarantees in life and that is something that I'm able to live with.
