I don't want to turn my blog space into any sort of 'political rant' but here are two things that came to my attention this past week, that I though you might find interesting, amusing, or at the very least a 'sign of the times.
First, I received my sample ballot for voting in the State of Nevada. There are some items on the ballot that bear scrutiny. You know those 'trick questions', where you think you're voting to institute something, but a yes vote actually means no.
For instance, we're voting on legalizing marijuana. Seriously, this is a state where prostitution is basically NOT illegal and we're just getting around to legalizing Pot? Some things baffle the mind.
But, I did see something on the sample ballot that made me 'LAUGH OUT LOUD'. In all the years I've been voting I have never before seen this. See if you can spot it.
Is it just me, or just Nevada? I have never before notice in a Presidential Election an option to vote for 'None of These Candidates'. I don't believe that's actually the space for a write in candidate either, just a plain and simple vote for NOBODY LISTED.
Next up, today when I went by the Post Office, in front of the local grocery store were these ladies.
When I asked if I could take their picture, one of them got a little huffy and said. 'sure, can I take yours?' To which I replied, 'Of course.' Then she asked me why I wanted the pic and I told her it was for a blog post. She apologized for getting huffy and said they have taken a lot of flak, particularly from men, for being a 'hater'. Are you kidding me? Because these ladies are willing to come out and support someone they believe in they are 'haters'. I wonder if the person who said this to them considered them self to be a kind hearted, non-mean spirited soul. Anyway, I wanted to post their picture here to show that not all women are fooled by that ONE! (Go ahead, include me in that lovely group!)
Now, if you want to get the pitchforks and torches ready, know that I will not respond. Everyone has a right to their own opinion. I am not a 'hater'. Are you?
