Back from La La Land

*breathes the nice clean air*

Well, we got back from Glendora around 6pm today. I had a better time there than I thought I would, but I'm still glad to be home with my kitty and my puppy and my Internet connection!

I've skimmed my sjhw mail and my non-list mail. Samandjack... I hope it's been behaving. And if it hasn't been... well, I really don't want to know about it! I haven't even touched my lj friends page yet. I'm scared to.

Glad to hear that Kelly saw her first full JL episode, Maid of Honor!

Sue and I had lots of fun on Sunday -- we went to the Sierra Madre Wisteria Festival, walked around a lot, and I got a tan! Monday I went to the Ontario Mills mall with my family... my God, you could fit every mall in CC County inside Ontario Mills. Yikes. We also went to see the NASCAR 3D IMAX movie, which was cool. I mean, I liked the 3D part better than the NASCAR part, but eh ;)

And I thought the gas prices here were bad. I saw upwards of $2.35 down south.

I feel kind of disconnected from everything, being away from the Net and the news. Heard about Spain going socialist, which is really a pity. But there are those who fight terrorists and those who want only to appease them, and I suppose that's every nation's choice to make.

Listening to the radio/satellite thingy and heard Cheney's speech at the Reagan Library (which actually wasn't far from where we were). He made some really awesome points. There's also a contest going on Laura Ingraham's site for the Kerry campaign theme song. Nominations so far include "Flipper" (from the TV show), "Jive Talkin'" (Bee Gees), "Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?" (Lovin' Spoonfuls), the Adams Family theme, and others. Hysterical!

tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk. I never ever tho' you would post something like this. Really, I thought you first did learn about what you posted and didn't post just following what you think is right without knowing if it's really the reason why people votes PSOE.

*sighs* okay, round 6 (I think) I try to make an USA person who shows close mind the reason why PSOE won (damn, you would thought that I at least voted them but not ! FCOL).

PSOE won not because of the islamists...they won 'cause PP did it wrong for too long and the people who didn't like moved their ass and went to vote, that's as clear as it is. What had they done wrong? For starters yeah the war that the 90% of population didn't like and then letting the soldiers there when also the 90% didn't want them there, but that's not the only thing that went 'bad'...The Prestige (which I think is not completely their fault but well I'm not an anti-PP), PHN (Plan Hidrológico Nacional), the info that came from the public tv channel (have in mind here our channels are not as many by nature as over USA) was totally manipulated by 'em, plus making Spain more spanishnationalist and antiotherrealculturesthatdoinfactexistinthiscountry.

the PHN is (since I'm guessing you have no idea what it is, if you already do then better) a plan where they took water from the Ebro (a river) and take it to the areas of Spain that don't have water. That would leave the Ebro with lot less of water in the river itself = all the rice making that is in the end of the river would be 'out' since there wouldn't be enough water; it would be cheaper to create places to take out the salt of the sea water and make it able to 'earth'-consumption. Plus the solution to the lack of water was to say they would redirect some rivers from the Pyrenees to the Ebro (stupidly when it's cheaper to do that of no-salt).

Of course there's also the AVE which means looooooooots of money and practically there's less than 10% of people that use it (oh and it's always late so...)


oh and want only to appease them if we had wanted to appease terrorist actually (well ages ago) ETA would had got the Basque Country to be totally independent.

oh and that shit of appeasing or fighting...eat it, with all due respect in Spain we do know what is to have terrorism and even with the 11-S how long had you suffer terrorism? Count that, count then how long had we (Spain, Ireland, you name it) got terrorism and let's see hows the best way to end it? Seems Ireland ways is the best...mainly 'cause they did succeed and *checks* yeah no one had succeed by the arms (well yeah, killing everyone alive in their own country and the other country ... if that's the solution)

and I suppose that's every nation's choice to make.

then why do certain US people decide that they have to comment this? (saying US 'cause the only people who I know had commented this are from US) if it's every nation choice then don't judge anyone.


and my intention wasn't to get you or anyone else angry but I'm tired of people judging us without having any idea what's all the politics and stuff around about, to understand Spain's politic you have to had been living here for a long time and known a lot of people from here. It's probably one of the countries hardest to understand but that's what makes our diversity even if not all people know that some of us have another culture as native one.
Hey Lyd,

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the terrorist factor wasn't the only one that led to this guy being elected. But the fact remains that the terrorists are happy about it, just like they would be happy if Kerry was elected over here in November. They don't want world leaders who act and are going to threaten them... they want leaders who are going to pull back and let the status quo remain as is.

then why do certain US people decide that they have to comment this? (saying US 'cause the only people who I know had commented this are from US) if it's every nation choice then don't judge anyone.

Because I enjoy my God-given right to free speech :)
