Election Day 2012

The mechanics involved in our very antiquated voting system may be flawed and I’m sure we’re gonna hear about all kinds of irregularities and voter intimidation this year — in fact, we’re already hearing about it! — but, the truth is, every vote matters, especially in a year like this. So, I don’t care where you have to go or what you have to do, or even who you vote for (actually, wait…I do kinda care about that a little) I just want you to vote.

I have taken Greta with me to the polls every time I’ve voted since she’s been alive and she loves it. We vote at a retirement home near our place and they don’t always let me bring her into the voting booth with me, but, even now, Greta knows that election day is something special. She also knows that Daddy and Mommy get stickers when they vote, so, that’s a pretty big selling point too.

But, whether she’s there for the stickers or the free candy — those oldies love to give her candy! — or even just the fawning old folks in the lobby, Greta comes with us, every single time we vote. I hope your kids do too. Voting matters, and the sooner we teach the next generation about it, the better. As the sign above says: “It’s time to vote!” So, get on out there and do it today!

Long live Obamacare!

Wow, just wow. Every once in a while the Supreme Court gets it right and today they got it crazy right. I don’t think Obamacare is perfect, but, it’s a much needed step in the right direction. And as a SAHD whose family of three, in an effort to save money, has three separate health care plans with three separate providers and all the paperwork and bullshit that comes with it, all I can say is…amen, baby. Let’s fix this shit! Long live, Obamacare!

And long live Chief Justice John Roberts for breaking rank with his backwards-thinking cronies for a change. As Joe Biden would say: “This is a big fucking deal!”
