SunFyre for President

A few years back I did a post that was tongue-in-cheek saying that I wasn't comfortable voting for George W. Bush or John Kerry.  Therefore, I had decided to run myself.  I didn't win.

This year I'm much more comfortable voting for Barack Obama or John McCain.  I'll let you know on Wednesday in November who got my vote, but until then it's my little secret.  The reality is that I don't think we can go wrong with either man as President.  Both seem to be intelligent, high integrity, and honest individuals who are both running for office for the right reasons.  You may disagree with me, but compared to the last four elections I think we have better opportunities for a good president than we've had in two decades.

With that being said, I'm still going to run.  Unfortunately I forgot to submit my paperwork so you'll have to write me in.  I'd be a great President, but I am a procrastinator.

Over the next few days I'm going to publish my platform on my blog.  I encourage your comments, even negative ones.  If you think I'm an idiot then tell me so, but be prepared to back it up.  If you think I'm a freaking genius... I already know you are correct, but it would be nice to hear it anyhow.

Here's my slogan... fixing everything that is wrong in the world, and fixing a few things that were perfectly fine.

By the way, I'm also excepting ideas for my vice presidential short list, so send me your nominations by e-mail (SunFyre@SunFyre.com) or posting a comment.

  1. I see no platform. The election isn't that far away. If you want any votes, you'd better stop procrastinating and start writing.

I'm Disabled and I Can Prove It

I'm disabled. 
I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.
Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse.
It’s the mother’s fault!
I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
