Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Obama and McCain's - make that 7 homes. I think. 7?

The latest news out of the McCain/Obama camps about McCain's "housing issue" is another reason why I eschew politicians and the mockery most make out of our political system.

Presidential candidate Senator John McCain (R), in an interview with The Politico several days ago, couldn't recall how many houses he owns. Democrats pounced. ABC World News said Presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama (D) "and the Democrats smell blood in the water. And they're using the quote to paint McCain as out of touch."

OK. Obama leases ONE million dollar home in Chicago. Now if Obama really wanted to paint McCain as "out of touch", you'd think he (Obama) could have chosen a $300,000 home, let's say, to live in. So 8, million dollar homes versus 1. Kinda of the pot calling the kettle black, isn't it?

For the record, I'm neither for nor against these candidates. I'm undecided. But isn't it rather silly for a debate to arise over the homes of one of the candidates OR the fact that he can't remember how many he owns? Does that really mean McCain is "out of touch" with the American economy? There are certainly other issues to discuss - the Iraq War, the economy, Social Security, taxes, illegal immigration, gas prices, education, health care....

Hey - Obama camp. You missed one of McCain's homes...the Hanoi Hilton - where he spent 5 1/2 years as a POW while serving this country during the Vietnam War.

As a war veteran, McCain deserves EVERYTHING this country has to offer him. After all, it IS the American dream, ain't it? Would rather have him on the street - penniless and homeless - like other vets? Have you been to the VA hospital in your city? They suck - and those are our men and women who gave themselves for our country - some giving the ultimate sacrifice - and our government treats them like shit.

(For the record, the McCain family owns eight properties. The Politico reports McCain's family "owns at least eight properties -- not the seven Democrats are alleging or the four McCain's staff identified - according to a Politico analysis of property and tax records, as well as interviews." Sen. McCain himself does not own any of the properties. They're all owned by Cindy McCain, her dependent children and the trusts and companies they control.)
