My philosophy (as if you care)

My philosophy regarding elections ...
I will never again vote for an incumbent. All politicians do, once they are elected, is try to position themselves for the next election. All of my votes now go to virgins.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that 4 people asked me for advice on personal situations yesterday -- well, I guess I'm grateful for this but I'm just a middle-aged drunk trying to live one day at a time

for the Tenth Step meeting yesterday - a topic for the ages

for a chat with a newcomer yesterday afternoon at, um, Starbucks

for this weeks topic on SOBRIETY SOCIETY- drop by, read, share

that I will vote later this morning - because I can!

that no matter who wins any particular election, it doesn't get my dander up -- Life is too short to allow some stupid politician to get me all upset. I am reminded that we live in a corrupt society/democracy whether we want to admit it or not. It's been this way for 230 years and it's not likely to change during my lifetime. The government (local, state and federal) continues to operate in spite of itself and who is in charge. The economy flourishes as it goes through its cycles. Our differences lie within our own philosophies and opinions of how the corruption should be applied and who should apply it.
Whatever your opinion may be, exercise your privilege and VOTE!

NOTE: I ALMOST NEVER WRITE HERE ABOUT POLITICS. TODAY IS AN EXCEPTION. PLEASE EXCUSE THIS RANT AND IT WON'T HAPPEN AGAIN SOON, HOPEFULLY.
MY NAME IS DAVID, I'M AN ALCOHOLIC AND I APPROVED THIS MESSAGE.

I am trying to find my drivers license so that I can go vote. Maybe it is in my glove compartment.

Good idea, don't vote for the incumbents.... I don't see it changing, we are too selfish as a society. Great post Dave!
