Mary’s Plan to End the War

Could a 4 year-old be smarter than the government? (that’s a rhetorical question).

I was hanging around talking to Mary the other morning. Actually you listen to Mary you don’t talk to her. That little sweetie-pie could talk the ears off a jack rabbit.

So she’s talking about everything and nothing all at once. And then she starts talking about her plan to end the war. I didn’t even know she knew about the war.
Mary (4) has a friend her age who we will call Jay. Jay’s dad has been in Iraq since last fall and Mary says Jay misses his dad very much. I’m sure that is true.

Here is her plan:

"I think all the good soldiers (our side) should sneak home at night to see their beloveds (her word – 4 sisters will do that to ya). Then all the bad guys will say ‘hoorah we won’ and take a rest. Then the good guys can sneak back in the morning into the camp of the bad guys and kill them all (she’s a little violent – 6 brothers will do that to ya). Then ‘Jay’s’ dad could come home for good."

Sounds as good as any plan I’ve heard to end this stupid war.

So now who are you going to vote for?

Candidate A

Candidate B

Candidate C

I’d vote for candidate A personally. I’ve had it with lame candidates.
And I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils. Out of 300 million people in this country, McCain and Obama are the best your dems and reps could come up with? Is this election process as rigged as American Idol? (more rhetorical questions)

Whoa sorry for going all political on you...ok I feel better now...

Important note: this post is in no way directed at anyone serving in the Middle East. I have friends who were over there and ones still there. It's directed at politicians and politically appointed generals
