    Default Who would you vote for???

    I got this in an e-mail and I found it quite interesting. Ill wait a day or two to see who you all pick then let you know whos who.



    It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three candidates.


    Candidate A.

    Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist. He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.


    Candidate B.

    He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.


    Candidate C.
    He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.


    Which of these candidates would be your choice?
    Fire Marshal/Safety Officer

    IAAI-NFPA-IAFC/VCOS-Retired IAFF

    i read this one and FYI for all those who would choose Canidate C, beware.

    Im not going to ruin it for everybody by revealing the names, but it certainlly makes you think when you see who they are.

    Default Lets vote together

    It is important for fire fighters of this country to stick together and vote together to get a common out come. This will also show the country that we are united.

    The IAFF will give us information on all the people running. The most important thing to keep in mind is the bill in the house known as HR980.

    This bill would help the fire fighters in the south out a lot. If a candidate is for this bill, then I will vote for HIM!

    Notice I said HIM!

    Paid fire fighters in the south are suffering because we do not have bargaining rights. We need this bill to pass. Thanks.

    If you would like more information please go to IAFF online under legislation and find out all you need to know.

    I'm one of the few that don't know who the 3 are....so on that note.

    My choice would be B...

    Kicked out of office..Why...could have not agreed with everyone else.
    Sleeps in till noon....Me too..(until I hear the wife clock go off)
    Used opium...means he's not a saint
    Drinks whiskey every night...depends on brand...I have a beer often also
    Overall sounds like a person who understands the struggles of everyday people.

    Candidate A....smokes and has martinis daily...oh well
    couple mistresses...hope he didn't run on the "family values" ticket..
    consults an astrologist...possibly can't make a decision on his own
    associates with crooked politicians...aren't they all though?

    Candidate C...sounds too good to be true
    Decorated war vet....all that means is he did exceptional in war...doesn't mean he will be a good politician (we have retired FF's on our state legislature and they want to cut things like collective bargaining and such, stuff that benefited them as FF's)
    Vegetarian...so what....maybe won't be for hunters though, doesn't drink, never cheated on his wife...Lots of people don't.

    I personally just like B, mostly because he has done what many people do. Not the opium thing though, but many people have experimented with drugs in their past. The big question is if he was honest about that. Did he inhale?

    Talking Well..........

    My Three Choices IN ORDER, are.......... (Drum Roll)...........

    1....... B

    2....... A

    3....... A Jointly held Co-Position by B and A.

    By way of explanation, I wouldn't trust C with anything, people like Him/Her should be ordered off the Planet. C's ONLY redeeming feature on that list is "Decorated War Hero".

    AND, "C" is starting to look like John Kerry........

    Lol, sorry chief, wrong end of the political spectrum (sp?) there. Candidate C is at the other side from John Kerry.

    I've seen this before. And I also know who all three candidate names.

    It will be surprising when they are finally revealed.

    Actually, i think Hitler had at least 2 mistresses. Eva Braun was his mistress for quite some time before the two married. They met when Hitler was actually engaged to someone else.

    Also, which Roosevelt was that in option A? Was is Teddy or Franklin?
