You know I have to be mighty pissed off if I'm writing an unscheduled post.
Back when I was but a lad from my daughter's age to my son's age (9-18), when it was time for my parents to vote, I didn't have gym that day.
Because my local elementary school was where everyone who lived in my particular section of the 100 Acre Woods voted at, and the gym is where the voting booths were set up.
Simple, right? Election day, no gym, still went to school.
Fast forward to the idiocy that is now.
Today we vote on whether to kick the bums out or install new bums to kick out later, or for a select minority, exercising their right to sit on their fat ass to bitch, moan, groan and complain and do NOTHING.
And both my kids have today off from school.
What. The. Phuc?
My wife has to be inconvenienced and my kids have to be inconvenienced because my stupid state declared today to be a HOLIDAY AND THUS NO SCHOOL TODAY.
Let me see if I understand this: At my daughter's school, the gym is being used as a polling station, which means the rest of the school is available for staff and children to use; my son's high school isn't being used as a polling station; and yet, there is NO SCHOOL TODAY.
This PSA has been brought to you by the letter I, which incidentally can be found on your hand when you're voicing your opinion about the ability of those who govern your town, state and country with the absolute minimal amount of brain cells and the emptiest wallet.
We return you now to regularly scheduled program that will be consistently interrupted with election updates every 90 seconds until you throw your t.v. out the window, in which case you'll discover the beauty of having an actual conversation with your significant other.
