I have no problem with it as long as it's one thread. It only becomes a problem when it becomes an All-Panther board.

One thread won't kill anyone.

Well I'm finally off for a week of vacation. I plan to stay completely away from any technology (computers, tv, etc). I don't even plan to read the paper. So, I hope to return refreshed and happy to find out:

gas has dropped to $2.00 a gallon
stock market has surged to 14,000
the Bobcats have traded for Carlos Boozer
I won the lottery

See ya in a week

If any of those things happen........

Well, I really don't have anything witty to say primarily because there's no chance in hell those things will even come close to occurring.

Well I did return and although none of my predictions came true, gas is a little cheaper. Anyway, looking forward to the Panthers and Cats and as usual I have high expectations for both.

It was great. Just me, the wife and our daughter on an island off the coast of Maine. Much lobster was consumed.

So what does everyone think of the upcoming election? I'm kinda cynical about both candidates.

I think I'm covered on what McCain is planning to do, but not really sure what Obama is gonna do.

I'm better off discussing something safe like the weather rather than stating my beliefs because y'all have a good idea of what I'm like when I have strong opinions. Though I have to say that I don't remember being so excited about a candidate or an election since JFK (that should give a strong hint) but I was too young to vote back then. (Really...)

I certainly understand people getting excited about Obama. Even though I think he spews as much B.S. as any politician, I can't deny the historical significance of his nomination.

And it's always good when scads of people register to vote--whomever they vote for--because they take a stake in the success of our country.

Even if one doesn't care for specific candidates there is far more to consider other than the candidates themselves. Republicans and Democrats generally differ on such important issues as states rights vs federal govt; strict interpretation of the Constitution vs interpretations that break ground as far as, for example, social and economic justice for racial and religious minorities, disabled people, etc.; differences in interpretations of the Constitution on issues such as gun ownership; issues of taxation and distribution of wealth; regulation vs laissez-faire economics and many other issues that speak to our individual values and perspectives and that define, more or less, how we identify ourselves as far as political party affiliation and other areas of life. So, we vote for something larger than a particular candidate. We vote for a particular vision of America as we see her and as we would like to see her.

Speaking of the weather, how about Fay? Sure she's not even anything tropical now, but we've gotten rain we desperately need. However, there's been at least 5 tornadoes reported in my area the past 2 days (which is totally rare, but sweet nonetheless). So yeah. Also, college is pretty freakin sweet, too.
