In 89 Days the Weight-endowed Person Sings


I’m trying to be politically correct, lest I offend any sensitive readers, so I was afraid to title this blog, “In 89 Days the Fat Lady Sings.” Anyway you describe it, in 89 days the election hype will be over, at least the campaigning aspect will be finished. God forbid we have a hanging chad incident or a tie. I don’t think the American people can tolerate more of the baloney we have been fed for almost a year.
trump 2hillaryIf you feel like I do, you wonder how in  a country of 320 million people, these two candidates were the best we could do?
Can’t we have another choice on the ballot such asnewman NONE OF THE ABOVE.
Or what about Alfred E Newman, of Mad Magazine fame? What me worry?
How are people who are still reasonable sane expected to survive during the next 89 days? Here area my suggestions:
1. Do your Christmas shopping now.
2. Buy a huge sports package and watch sports 24 hours a day on your TV
3. Avoid talking to people, except children under the age of 2.
4. Log off Facebook and stay off.
5. Read a book, make sure it is fiction. Political books are not fiction!
6. Turn off the news, and  block CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and similar channels.
7. Exercise, alone.
8. Buy and consume voluminous amounts of strong adult beverages.
9. Volunteer at an animal shelter. Talk only to the dogs and cats.
10. And remember, like consuming a spicy bowl of chilli, this too will pass.  Fssst.
To cheer you, I’ve given you famous quotes to ponder:

Well said TJ.
In life events often go from bad to worse, but in politics events go from worse to worser.  RWG
politics 3
political 2Such a useless bridge was actually built by politicians in Louisiana.  It was “called the bridge to nowhere.” For years the huge bridge over the Mississippi River sat unused, because no roads had access to it. A  monolith of political stupidity.
And my personal favorite:
political 3
                                                          Could it be that they are both full of shit?

    I fell to the floor in laughter. I can commiserate with Walt. I, too, yell at the TV. Margaret reminds me they cannot hear me. Sounds like you are enjoying a full, happy retirement. We continue to work. I am still a Safety Manager (because all the frigging law school graduates snatch up all the paralegal positions). Well, at $7.00 to $10.00 an hour they can have them.We are going to the beach for Labor Day. Had to put my ailing and eldertly cat Max down. Part of his ashes are buried in a garden by our patio (named, appropriately, “Max’s Garden”). The rest of his ashes are buried with my mother. Have a safe trip to Nebraska.While I seldom comment, I read your blog religiously.
