Some political fun

I saw this video on CNN and loved it.  Very fun.  What a great way to teach kids about our political process. Below are the lyrics from the web site of the school they attend in Atlanta. There is an opening verse about McCain that I can’t completely make out. They say something about serving in Vietnam, dropping our taxes, drilling offshore and the economy growing. Maybe you can figure out the words.

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

(McCain supporters)
McCain’s the best candidate
With Palin as his running mate
They’ll fight for gun rights, pro life,
The conservative right
Our future is bright
Better economy in site
And all the world will feel our military might

(Obama supporters)
But McCain and Bush are real close right
They vote alike and keep it tight
Obama’s new, he’s younger too
The Middle Class he will help you
He’ll bring a change, he’s got the brains
McCain and Bush are just the same
You are to blame, Iraq’s a shame
Four more years would be insane

Lower your Taxes – you know Obama Won’t
PROTECT THE LOWER CLASS – You know McCain won’t!
Have enough experience – you know that they don’t
STOP GLOBAL WARMING – you know that you won’t

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA
Stick with McCain and you’re going to have some drama
We need it
HE’LL BRING IT
He’ll be it
YOU’LL SEE IT
We’ll do it
GET TO IT
Let’s move it
DO IT!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

I’m talking big pipe lines, and low gas prices
Below $2.00 that would be nice

But to do it right we gotta start today
Finding renewable ways that are here to stay

I want Obama
FORGET OBAMA,
Stick wit McCain you gone have some drama
MORE WAR IN IRAQ
Iran he will attack
CAN’T BRING OUR TROOPS BACK
We gotta vote Barack!

Obama on the left
McCain on the right
We can talk politics all night
And you can vote however you like, I said
You can vote however you like, yeah

Democratic left
Republican right
November 4th we decide
And you can vote however you like, I said

You can vote however you like, yeah

Headed Home

It’s never fun driving home from vacation, but we had an awesome time and made some great memories. I’ll have some video and photo galleries up soon.

We always have the boys wait until the end of the trip to pick out one souvenier. This keeps them from asking to buy everything they see. They chose a dino playground and legos.

They had an assortment of breads, pastries, cereals and oatmeal. A simple breakfast, but a welcome change to the heavier meals we have been eating.

Every night at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, one of the cast members from Africa tells a traditional African story. It was a lot of fun sitting around the firepit listening to it.

We had dinner at the onsite restaurant at the resort-Boma. I really enjoyed it, but the African flavors were not for Jackie. Fortunately she was able to fill up on dessert. While we were waiting for our table, the boys enjoyed looking in the gift shop.

As usual the boys love the pool. It has a zero depth entry and a fast slide. It’s strange but it is a little chilly in the water. Who would have thought in Florida.
