Big time running withdraws...

When the back-quack told me to stop running for a few days, after he adjusted a few of my lower vertabrates, i cringed. Two days later for a follow up adjusted, he said i could walk but to do nothing jarring. Riding a bike could be ok, but i shouldn't push anything.

Wednesday, i go back for a third and hopefully final pushadjustment. He knows i am trying to marathon train, and like every other sane person i know, is real big on letting my body heal.

Since, i can't seem to post about running and i don't feel yet like typing about new work things, let's go back to a nice political rant.......

i guess i still remember hearing that George Bush doesn't care about black people, and now it seems to be the entire GOP. Big shock, eh? At the recent NAACP convention in Detroit, all presidential candidates from the Democratic and Republican parties were invited to attend.

One Republican showed up. One...Tom Tancredo, who used his time to talk about illegal immigration. Now this seems dumb to me cause, in a convention center filled with members of the NAACP, i guess you expect the majority of the attendees to be...black. Why not speak to your audience??? When many members of group you are speaking to can trace their origins back to slavery, ergo...immigration via abduction and cruelty....

i just think it may not be the front-running topic for the NAACP.

...but Giuliani was right here. He attended a $2500.00 plate fundraiser is Novi. Half an hour drive to Cobo Convention Center Downtown. Sure demographically, most members of the NAACP vote democratic, but what a snub. It wasn't even worth an hour of Rudy's time to make an appearance.

...alas, the now defunct "vote for Mike '08" did not receive an invitation to attend

i love a good conspiracy theory....

O.k. here's the deal...Once in a while, i get to thinking about terrorism. i think how our own government tells us terrorist may or may not be planning to attack us. And while i stare blankly at the idiocy of such a comment, i know many people begin to panic.

And while i never stocked up on duct-tape to protect my family from the non-existent dirty bombs that were en route to my little suburb via non-existent inter-continental iraqi weaponry, i know many who did. Sad but True

After reading the Downing Street Memo's i do not believe anything our government says and little the media tells me. Cause the media is just a pawn, and freedom of the press is dead....

So....i don't really believe the two unexploded cars found in London were planted by terrorist.

Sounds dumb, but i figure in a country where leadership just changed and a new prime minister could be rallied by public support to get out of iraq; it's not in the terrorists best interest to ensure Great Britain stays in Iraq....but it sure is in USA's best interest.

Since when do we hear about unexploding car bombs.....
Since when do terrorist have two that don't explode at the same time....
ooooh, don't we all feel just a little un-safer

pass the dust-tape....

i really need to get back to running soon....

thanks for reading

Ugh...I'm sorry about the running or lack thereof.

If it makes you feel any better, my race today was less-than-stellar. I was 9 mins. slower today.

Gettin' older sucks sometimes....

Running updates are great, but I really do enjoy your political rants. Keep 'em coming!

While I know most of your blogging is about running I enjoy anything you choose to write about. While I enjoy the running blogs I can't really understand not being a runner. Anyway, whatever you write, I'll read.

Hope you feel better soon. Thoughts on why you seem to be having these little injuries?

I think the first post I ever read of yours was in a similar conspiracy theory Vein. While I share some of your views on trust of goverment. Our view on the media is quite different. I think the public are the pawns and the media is the chess player letting the media push them where they want them to go. It's prett sad actually when you really stop to think about it.

Not sure the US really gives to sh*** weather or not GB stays in Iraq. Face it we are short timers there. As soon as this next political cycle gets up and running the pull out will begin and let the spin fly.

But I have to agree, those must have been some pretty bad terrorists in London. Not one but two that don't work, definetly makes you wonder.

Guiliani is an elitist disguised in the cloak of the common man. Typical political bullsh*t, really.

On the terrorist point, you are probably on to something. We'll never know the entire story, not even when history sorts it all out.

Using fear as a means to garner support is the easiest - and most insidious - way to gather support no matter the party. If that's the tool a politician uses, then you know they are bankrupt on ideas.

Good luck with the back. You've been making huge gains in your running hobby. Perhaps your body is reminding your brain that it still can control the show a bit!?

When you are going again, we'll have to get a couple runs in including at least one on ole Paint Creek Trail?
