Weekly Vitals - Get Your Fix.

Wine-o's of the world rejoice, this Bud's for you!
Wine continues to increase in popularity, at the expense of beer.
Since 1992, Gallup has been asking Americans who drink alcohol (a little less than two-thirds of the population) which of three types of alcoholic beverages they prefer: wine, beer, or liquor. The trend is clear: Beer has dropped in popularity while wine's popularity has increased.
In 1992, 27% of drinkers said they preferred wine, while 47% preferred beer. Now, according to Gallup's July 7-10 poll, 39% of drinkers prefer wine while 36% prefer beer. The percentage preferring liquor has stayed about the same since 1992.

Can't escape it, residing here in the nation's capital - the POTUS Approval.
The real question is, what does the POTUS think of us - the people of The United States?
The People's Approval rating, by The President of the United States, at 40% (lower than his own); but, all hope is not lost because
"God loves you, and I love you. And you can count on both of us as a powerful message that people who wonder about their future can hear." George W. Bush, Los Angeles, Calif., March 3, 2004
*Contact Vitals' author to receive polling methodology that arrived at the 40% statistic

Bush Approval at 44%
: Lowest measurement of his presidency
The July 25-28 [2005] Gallup Poll finds 44% of Americans approving and 51% disapproving of the job Bush is doing as president. Bush's prior low approval rating was 45%, which occurred once in March and once again in June of this year.

Contrary to popular belief, this approval rating information is not meant to push any type of political agenda or to make the POTUS feel unloved, unpopular or ugly. There are many people and many country's that do not embrace democratic principals or believe that citizens should be granted the freedom of speech or expression. If we don't exercise these rights, how will anyone stay informed, become quizzical or motivate themselves to perform extended research on a controversial topic. Have a daily latte and don't forget to exercise your rights!

Do you remember why certain vacations stand out from others? They were probably filled with more family oriented fun. Great Family Vacation
