We are sitting here today on the last day of summer. Oh, you have noticed the date… Well here in Oregon it hasn’t rained since the beginning of July and we are staring down the barrel of a weeks worth of rain. They say we need six inches by the end of the month to catch up… I think we just might do it. Today we are in a dire situation. Obama is running against a crazy man that a vast portion of the country is trusting for turning against everything good he has ever done. Romney is insane and ready to set the clock back to 1950. Tonight the vice president candidates had their debate. There is a complete disconnect in the Republican party. They seem to care so much about the unborn but will leave everyone else to their wits. Fetuses are not the only humans who need help. The problems with welfare are not that there is too much money being given to unreasonable people but that there are unreasonable people. Increase the morality of the people, that is where the debate should be focused. The only way to do that is to make education a priority. The Republican party wants to privatize this. To give it over to a giant monopoly. If we don’t change our schools will run no better than comcast or Verizon. Welcome to the new world. The big news on the home front is that we are weeks away from the birth of our new baby. It’s so close that if we blink we will miss it. Everyone is excited everyone is waiting. I will plan on updating here. This time we have a scheduled c section so there will be a lot less drama surrounding it. Still look for important updates here. The biggest change since Gwendolen was born regarding this site has been that Facebook is by far the most popular status update site. Since AkebonoVision has been my status update for going on 10 years there is no reason to change. This time will be smooth to as most of the technical difficulties have been fixed in the past 4 years. See you then!
