Ron Howard video

I'm not sure if I'm doing this right - I'm trying to embed, but I've never done this before. Someone sent me this via a link in an email, and as I love Ron Howard and the others involved (nostalgia!) I sent it to Monkeys. I could hear him laughing from the other room just now, so I'm posting it, too. Or trying to. It's from Funny or Die, so if I can't post it and you want to see what it is, then go to Funny or Die and search for Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, and Andy Griffith. Also, be amazed at what make-up and wigs can do.

I don't care what your political views are; you are welcome to whatever thoughts you think. You know mine.

I thought so! Of course, I agree with him, so maybe I'm biased. :) Regardless, it was really neat seeing them back in their old characters. (Also, I was stunned by how cute Ron Howard was.)

When Andy made the comment about butterfly ballots I lost it in a fit of giggles. (One of those, that's sad but funny moments. I am from Florida, it was my state that had the whole hanging chad issues. Argh!)

Your icon is PERFECT, by the way.

Well put! I hope lots of people think that way.

I have to admit it was cute.

The thing that irks me about most of the political talk, and this year is certainly no exception, is that people act and think that there are only two parties and it's "us against them" regardless of which party you profess to follow.

Did you know that there are at least 18 different parties running presidential candidates this year? How many are on your ballot (16 on Colorado's)? Ever wonder why?

Re: cute
I have gotten to hear cynthia mckinney speak on tv - I actually liked what I heard from her. (& yes, I know about the little altercation when she wasn't wearing her "I'm a Congressman!" pin. and of course I've heard from Ralph Nader, but I'm less enchanted with him after Gore lost. Darn it, I really really liked (and continue to like) Al Gore.

We have 13 names on our ballot (http://www.govote-okaloosa.com/content.aspx?id=49), but truthfully I have not investigated them this year. While some years I would consider "wasting my vote" (sarcasm, but in a sad/angry voice) on a non-main stream party candidate, but this year I want to make sure someone doesn't get elected as much as I want to see someone get elected. But I do agree we need to get beyond a two party system. I would love for some grassroots action to motivate people enough to vote outside the 2party and send a message to our politicians. We haven't had that since Perot, really. Unfortunately, there's a lot of lazy people like me out here who want to be spoon fed and not do a lot of research. (The amendments are extra tricky - I talk to my parents a bunch about them.) I certainly fall behind in what I ought to do and what i would like to do.

In my mind I like Libertarianism, on tests I score Socialism, and I'm registered Democrat as a protest (it's a very Republican county, as you know). I'm a bit confused!

I actually have voted for who I really wanted to win every time I've voted, although looking back on what I thought was the right thing is not what I think now...

What's awful on my part - I read the Colorado ballet you posted, I've never heard of the Tea Party! (Except the original one, of course).

Re: cute
Hehe, well at least you have bothered to think your positions through rather than blind loyalty to a person or party. I am happy with that since you can never reason a person out of an opinion they did not reason themselves into.

I have the luxury in this place of either voting Republican or "throwing my vote away", so Libertarian it is. See, this state has gone Republican for President every election post Goldwater/Johnson and with Palin as VP pick this year is not gonna be any different.
