Wow – what a week this has been for politics! We have a real grass roots effort opposing this administration – and what do the politicians do about it – they mock it. Not only that – but – we have their sheeple repeating exactly what they are saying. Some of this week’s submissions touch upon this subject a bit – others – well – given the broad spectrum that politics includes – we have some other really great submissions as well. Cash for Clunkers is another hot topic in this week’s submissions. I encourage you all to visit as many of these as you can.
I would like to thank all the contributors – without your submissions this carnival would not be successful. I would also like to thank all of you who continue to follow this blog and react to the submissions and for visiting them as well.
Also – I wanted to let everyone know the next edition will not be published until Sunday, August 23d. My birthday is Monday the 17th – we’re heading off to Disney for that weekend to celebrate my b-day – and – my 5 year old starts kindergarten the week of my b-day – this is our last vacation before he starts school full time. My blogging will be scarce beginning next Friday continuing in to the following Tuesday. For my contributors – please continue to submit your articles since they will still be published.
