Oh good grief!!!! Why is everyone giving this man so much press. This is the third time he has predicted the Rapture. Is the news so slow they need to make this guy into IMPORTANCE. He is a nut, he's been a nut and he will always be a nut. He's already had his 15 minutes of fame. Everyone stop enabling him. Please.

I grew up in Cocoa Beach, Florida and I remember my mom taking us to a Sonic-like seafood fast food. I always got shrimp and fries in a basket. My memory it was great.

You know the Kentucky Fried Chicken was kind of the division between Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral (the city), but I don't remember ever going there.

What issues???? All the guys running in Tennessee are too busy attacking their opponent to discuss their position on issues. People are so stupid. They expect a president to fix in two years what the Republicans screwed up in 8 years. And don't even talk about that crap about it was Clinton's fault. If it was heading down when Bush took office, he had 8 years to fix it. Now we're going to fill the Congress with the same guys who got us in this mess.

Another thing we're going to elect a doctor to Congress. A DOCTOR with no political experience and he's going to "REPEAL OBAMACARE" all by himself. Congress is a political machine, let's face it. Putting a doctor in is like putting a lamb in a lion's cage.

For governor here our choice is a Republican who is a nut and I mean he is a nut and a democrat who is an alcoholic. Who did I vote for. *SIGH* I just wish the candidates would run ads telling us what their values are, what their opinions are. How they feel about the issues that are important to Americans.

BTW the last time Tennessee put a doctor in the Senate he, after being their a quarter of his term, didn't show up for most of the votes thereafter nor did he run for another term. I am frustrated.

Let the flames begin.

I like the time I live in Now. I like air conditioning, I like sanitation. I like
CD's and DVD's and computers. I like being able to fly across the ocean to Europe in hours instead of months on a boat. I like being able to drive where I need to go in minutes instead of having to plan to be gone for a day to go to the store in town. I love cellphones and television. I love medicine and its advances each day (I am a nurse after all) I love the twenty-first century.

There's no other time period I would want tolive, of course I haven't seen the future.

Is this a rhetorical question? It is if you live in or around Nashville, Tennessee.

If you are about to take a trip that takes you to, through, or near our beautiful city let me give you the special "rules of the road" so you may keep your blood pressure down, prevent heart attacks and stroke, and preserve your sanity.

1. Right turns are made from the left lane but only if there is a car in the right hand lane just one car length or less behind you. This is especially true on interstates with a speed limit of seventy miles an hour. Extra points if its a tractor trailer in the right lane and they get him to jack knife.

2. When sitting at a stop sign driver must wait until a car is approaching in the cross lane and it must be less than three car lengths away before pulling in front of it, thus making it slam on its brakes. Extra points if it goes in a ditch or better yet hits you--WHIPLASH

3. Before giving someone a gesture out of frustration, remember, especially if the other vehicle is a pickup truck, they probably have a huntin' rifle or two with them. Extra points if you can out run them without at least getting your tires shot out.

4. Drivers here love playing chicken with tractor trailer drivers, crawling right up their bumpers hoping they'll slam on their brakes so they can run up under them thus decapitating themselves, or cut the driver off, and slam on your brakes letting him run over YOU. Though to my knowledge Tractor trailer versus almost every other vehicle on the road...The tractor trailer wins EVERY TIME. Go Figure.

5. Most important of all, at a four way stop, the most expensive vehicle goes first. This is the most dangerous one, since these little blue haired ladies who see through not over the steering wheel and driver boats are vicious as pit bulls. They carry canes and will beat at you & your car.

6. Never come if it may snow. Usual depths 1/2 to 2 inches. The rules change, drivers don't slow but go as fast as they can, slam on your brakes so you continue through intersections with your wheels locked, or spin in circles. And what is black ice again the television said this morning to beware of on bridges? Our policemen are way underpaid.

I always despise the way Nashville is displayed on TV, and movies as hicks and hillbillies. We do actually have a good deal of sophistication, plays, museums four star restaurants and five star hotels.

We have an overworked, did I mention underpaid police force, spending too much time dealing with traffic accidents. And while once truckers gave the name of MALFUNCTION JUNCTION to Knoxville, Tn. They may have taken a new vote, and rightly so.

*Note: Not a cop, nor married to one. Just sympathetic.
