Subject: What are you going to do with your website if Obama is elected?

 

Hi Lisa,

I'm curious - what will you do once the new president is obama? i
mean,
he doesn't wear a hat ... and is not from texas. i love your humor,
but
does the change mean you change too? On the other hand, there is
always room for political criticism no matter who the president is, but
you must know that continuing with the same brand is a stretch. and
moving to another brand is also a stretch. i'm just wondering if you
think about that. i mean, costa rica is such a beautiful place to
think
about, and think in, so i imagine that you are thinking such thoughts.

cheers,
dennis

 

Thanks for writing, Dennis.

 

Well, the saying "All Hat and No Cattle" was around long before my website and, I suspect, will be around long after. And there will always be people (mainly Republicans) pretending to be what they are not -- no matter who is president.

 

Yes, I have thought such thoughts here in beautiful Costa Rica and also in beautiful Alabama.

 

No real change is planned other than I may redesign my banner and get rid of those ugly faces once a Democrat is back in the White House restoring honor and dignity.

 

I look at it this way, Have Supporters - Will Produce.  It's a loyalty thingy.

 

Big hug to my supporters! What do you think supporters?

 

Sadly, my fundraiser has stalled over the past few days.
