Return to Normal...

So, I freaked out a little bit yesterday. Those people at BlogHer (who don't get EVERY blog I write), think I'm a nut now. I'll just go away for a while, and lurk a bit... The news I gave you is old, except that whole thing about the North Carolina Driver's license.

I still don't know what to think. I've probably watched one too many conspiracy movies, read one too many conspiracy books, and have an overly active imagination. But when Not the Momma and I talked a bit about it the other day, I knew nothing of this whole "North American Union." or the SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America). I still think there is a lot of fact behind the whole conspiracy theory. The fact that there is a crazy conspiracy theory that is debunking a lot of the real stuff is a bit unsettling, because people will dismiss the whole thing as false, rather than looking into the facts, and the truth.

The SPP is real. It is REAL.

From their Myth/Fact website:
Myth: The SPP is being undertaken without the knowledge of the U.S. Congress.

Fact: U.S. agencies involved with SPP regularly update and consult with members of Congress on our efforts and plans.

So, they talk to congress about what they're doing, but Congress doesn't necessarily help make or change or have authority over the decisions? I mean, just because I "update and consult" with my husband about things I want to do doesn't mean I'm asking permission, or that if he disagrees that I am bound to that decision. It's just a bit eerie. Mostly, because I don't know enough about our government and how it's run. That 9th grade 'government' class was a joke. The teacher was terrible, so full of himself that he could barely speak to us at a 9th grade level, let alone actually teach us about the real government.

Because I value my husband's career, (because he's the one who has one that brings in enough money to -- feed, clothe, house, and keep us in our TVs and Wiis), I will probably make this the last post about governmental conspiracies, and politics. For now.

Glad you are returning back to normalcy. :0)
My government teacher was great, but that doesn't mean that I'm up on everything governmental. :0) I'm clueless. I think it's chosen ignorance though.

Hmm. It's been a while since i had a government class. Like 12 years. Crap. I am out of the loop mostly on the whole political thing. About the only political thing I have been following is the three ring circus that is election 2008.

So now that I know you are staying away from politics for a while, how do you feel about term limits in Nebraska? :)

I said I wouldn't POST, I didn't say anything about COMMENTING! ha ha ha ha! Term Limits in Nebraska... Well, we all know how I feel about Mr. Ernie Chambers. I often wonder if term limits weren't voted in BECAUSE of him. :) I wouldn't doubt it. Mr. Ernie Chambers will NO Longer be able to annoy the squat out of Nebraskans because the man is OUTTA THERE next year! 2009 baby! 2009!

I figured you would be excited about that. :) I know how much you liked him. We were back in NE a few weeks ago and I heard about the term limits, and I was like, Mary is gonna be SO happy.
