    Oktoberfest  

We support Ron Paul for President 2012.  

I think the founding fathers would be very disappointed in what has become of the American government and its leaders; we now have a corrupt empire that largely ignores its own constitution and tramples on individuals' liberties.  The founding fathers would like Ron Paul, however.  Congressman Paul consistently votes no on issues that are unconstitutional. If elected Ron Paul will end our wars, close our hundreds of military bases across the globe and end our unsustainable, financially irresponsible empire.  Ron Paul has more support from US troops than all other presidential candidates combined!  Dr. Paul is critical of government corruption and believes in protecting whistleblowers.  As a congressman, Paul does not participate in the congressional pension, has never voted to raise congressional pay and as President he would draw a salary of just $39,336, which is the median salary of the American worker.  Paul believes the War on Drugs is not working, is a waste of money, and violates citizen's personal freedoms.  Congressman Paul has never voted for: raising taxes, an unbalanced budget, a federal restriction on gun ownership or an increase in the power of the executive branch.  Paul is the only presidential candidate proposing a viable balanced budget.  He voted against: the Patriot Act, the TARP bailouts, regulating the Internet and the Iraq war.  Search YouTube for " Ron Paul predicts " to see how Paul has predicted many of our current major problems and crises years or decades before they happened.  Please do not waste your vote on the status-quo; elect Ron Paul for US President in 2012.  - David & Joan Hall

 

Oktoberfest

(and Mud Bog - 2011)

9-13-2011 ~ Blog #405

This weekend was Oktoberfest at the Akron German Family Society in Brimfield.  Although the weather was nice on Friday, we had torrential downpours on Saturday and Sunday.  The grass parking/soccer field quickly became saturated; as patrons fled, their cars dug into the mud and became stuck leaving severe ruts.  On Sunday the crew covered grounds with straw which helped immensely.  The girls each soaked and mucked up a pair of dance shoes and socks each day.  Some of the dancing took place inside during the downpours.  Attendance was better than one would expect considering the rain.  Many hearty people stuck around and appeared to have a good time, however.  My job of grilling sausage was perhaps a third to half the normal Oktoberfest rate, which is not too bad considering the weather was the worst by far in GFS history.  Below are my 36 best shots of ~450 taken on Saturday and Sunday.
