Our local Fox news channel has a segment every night during their 10 o'clock broadcast called the rant. This gives people the opportunity to call in a leave a voicemail or to email their rant in and then they air some of them during this news cast. I decided that there are a few things bugging me that I can't seem to get out of my head so I am hoping that by throwing them out into cyberspace maybe I can let them go. So sorry but here it goes!

1. If you can't drive 65 miles an hour stay off the freeway. I don't leave in a hurry most of the time so that is not what this is about. I am the kind of person who would rather be 10 minutes early than 1 minute late. This is about courtesy. If your car is so old or beat up that it can't go 65 miles an hour on the freeway TAKE A SURFACE STREET! Quit Fred Flinstonein' it in the left lane of the freeway.

2. Why are we having a carnival at the schools for fall if the school is sending home notes with all of their students asking for copy paper among other school supplies be donated because we are running out of these things 8 weeks into the school year?! Come on who really cares about the stupid carnival anyway. Take the money that you are spending on dumb prizes that get thrown away the minute we walk in the door and buy school supplies with it. I know that the budget is super low and only getting cut lower again so lets be smart about where the money that we do have goes.

3. (This one's about Justin) Quit coming to bed and turning on Fox News channel even if I am already asleep. I can't take it anymore. I don't care about the cost of Sarah Palin's wardrobe. Or about Michele Obama's J Crew suit. I don't want to listen to which poll says what about who is winning or losing. For cryin' out loud I don't want this crap in my head anymore. I am dreaming about Gretta's interview on a train and Hannity and Combs arguing about who is the better candidate. Just vote and shut up already.

4. I am really sorry for Jennifer Hudson. Really I am. I know what it is like to have someone you love die unexpectedly. But what about all the other people in the country that this happens to everyday. Two yeas ago nobody would have even heard about this but because she is famous now her tragedy is more significant than Average Joe who is also suffering from there own loss. I guess I just feel bad for all the other people too not just the one's who make it onto TMZ.

So there you have it my rants. Feel free to share your own rants. in my comments. You all probably think I am nuts now.

Hey I am so with you on the election thing!! If I have to hear one more thing about it I may combust!! I really think I will burst into flames..
And as for driving I just wish I could get in the car and put a foot on the peddle. Yes, I would even put up with Utah drivers to get behind the wheel.

Totally am sick of the election. But especially the wardrobe thing. It is all I hear about any more. I am so tired of them taking about all this crap that is so not relevant or that people should even care about. I just want it to be over with and find out if I need to move to Europe.
