How should we gauge the public who attend these debates? So far the audience since the start of the GOP primary debate season has cheered the number of executions under Governor Perry’s watch, cheered when it was asked if an uninsured man should be left to die, they booed a soldier who who happened to be gay when he asked about DADT and now they booed a moderator’s attempt to ask Herman Cain about his character apropos to the sexual harassment allegations. I know that this audience represents a subsection of our society but how wide of a swath do they encompass? I am heartened by the fact that collective bargaining won the day in Ohio and Mississippi said no to the personhood rights of a fertilized egg and that Maine upheld their right to keep their voting rights as is, I just hope that the democrats and progressives come out in force on every election day next year. Our vote especially now, is our most precious right and we need to exercise it mindfully each and every election.

Now I have Kenny Rogers song stuck in my head, thank you so much. I am not much of a card player, I forget the rules for 21, I know the object of the game but I can’t keep the rules concerning the dealer and myself straight in my head. You might be familiar with the scenario of when the dealer has a 12 he has to continue and you stay or maybe not, I can’t remember. I have the same problem with poker, I can’t remember which hand beats which when you are in the stronger hand area. I am speaking about a full hand versus a straight or a flush, which is stronger? I forget and that is not a good thing when you have to choose between holding them or folding them.
In the question of life decisions, I usually opt to hang in there with whatever job I have in front of me. I really dislike giving up, I feel a great responsibility to see what I choose to do all the way through to the best of my ability.
I have especially been keeping this in mind with my nanowri challenge. Writing 50000 words in a month is quite challenging and I will persevere by hook or by crook, I will complete this challenge to prove to myself that I can indeed write a book.
