OK Election 2012, here’s what I want & need as an undecided voter who’s concerned with the following practical issue(s) that need properly prioritized and managed not just for the next four years but for many more down the line.
I was lucky enough to grow-up in a household where there were plenty of resources to go around = However, this was not to say that it was “some big giant party.” Ha! My Italian grandmother who lived with us sat over every bill that was sent with the groceries from our Italian Grocer “Mikey” who she fully trusted but that was just how things were done. Her thinking, “Did I order this? Did I pay for this. Do we need this? Did we pay for this.”
When it was time to tighten-the-belt my attorney & businessman father certainly would let us know and it was either work as a team to tighten-the-belt or “get the belt.” This was serious stuff.
Notwithstanding, this is serious stuff here we face this Nov 2012.
What I’m looking for is someone to cut the B.S. and realize for our U.S. A., for our nation, “we need to tighten-the-belt or get-the-belt yet with the careful understanding of what’s “that fat” and what’s the real human services, educational, defense & cultural edification needed to not only survive as a nation but thrive as a nation.”
Can I get an AMEN brothers & sisters?!

Sure, you may not be required to read these books for your instruction at Uni, however, it would be in everybody's best interest if you did (including your own, of course). .. My father always told me that "outside the classroom reading is mandatory for your higher education." --- I’m no teacher but I thought these books were a prerequisite for modern day life. hahaha!
