With Christmas two weeks away, and me still undecided about what some people need/want for Christmas, I suppose it’s silly to be thinking about political elections in 2007 and 2008. But it’s important to remember that there’s less time than one might think, because the November choices will be no-brainers. The May primaries are when I actually have to make a choice. Fortunately, the choices in both years just got much easier with announcements in the last few days.
There’s been a lot of hysterical ranting recently about something inaccurately called the North American Union, brought to my attention by a loyal reader. There seems to be a lot of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) about what’s really been proposed, and the conspiracy freaks are too busy frothing at the mouth about secret meetings, black helicopters, etc. to take a breath and digest what it really is. I haven’t quite figured it out myself, but if Lou Dobbs and the John Birch Society are both against it, it can’t be all bad.
