This blog has become a hotbed of political debate.

It could be that the election cycle relentlessly shoves dumbed down politics in my face. I hate it. I understand that it’s self defeating to admit that your ideas are imperfect. I know that you don’t win elections by telling voters that the real world has scarce resources and that reasonable people can disagree with you. I realize that it’s easier to get elected if you can convince people that you’re 100% right or that your opponent isn’t human. I just hate listening to advocates. It bugs me and I start to tune it out. Elections seem to draw out the most shallow and zero sum rhetoric possible.

Anyway the blog has been slow.

I blame life everybody being busy at the same time. I also blame Samoans. They just have no conception of the inherent generosity of white man’s culture. Either way I have nothing original to say so I’m providing a link to Mr. Sun. He has great political buttons.

Try writing about something other than politics. Politics is boring as fuck. Not to mention the fact that being so close to election day we've all been BOMBARDED from every direction with that shit. I for one am sick and tired of it. DeVos is lying snake, and Granholm is the dirty bitch that ran this state into the ground. It's lose lose anyway I can look at it. This might be the first election in a long time I don't vote in. I truely hate them both. (But affirmative action is up on the ballot...so I'm probably gonna go vote to do away with that.)

Fuck!! You got me. Oh well. At least you won't be here for this circus of an election. I just don't know what to do! They're both a terrible choice.
