Stuff

(Izzy, looking a little puzzled. October 2008.)

Political/U.S. government stuff

Via David, whose blog I believe is still private and so I can’t link to him here (but want to say thanks!), I was led to The Third Eve’s explanation of the bailout.  Worth taking the time to read.

My opinion stuff

I’ve had enough of the political ads.  Enough.  I’m tired of the mudslinging, the scare tactics, and the angelic looks and music that follow the dark and evil descriptions of the opponent.  Rather than point fingers (isn’t there some saying about how when you point your finger at someone else, the rest of your fingers are pointing back at you?), why not stand up and tell me what YOU plan to do if voted into office?

I wish I could say (and mean it) that I won’t vote for anyone who uses these tactics in their ads.  Unfortunately, that would mean I’d be unable to vote for anyone at all.

I may start taping any television shows I watch just so I can fast-forward through the obnoxious, stinky swamp of political commercials.  Or just stop watching television completely.  It’s pretty much a vast wasteland anyhow.

    I decided a long time ago who I was going to vote for this year. I live in a battleground state, so have been taping shows for months to avoid the attack ads. It is great. I highly recommend it!

    Hi Calvin. I’ve started taping since writing this post. You’re right. It’s great. 🙂
