I'VE GOT THE KNITTING COVERED

I came across an oldy but a goody, an ollld blog post Varifrank wrote during the last election cycle. Still relevant.

This next election is not the last election, just the next one in the line. There will be another in 2 years, and another 2 years after than and so on and so forth. Let's knock this crap off that "this is the most important election in our lifetimes"; they are all important. Just vote. Do a reasonably good job of knowing the issues, accept people who take a different view than you and then go take up rock polishing or go knit sweaters for the other 23 months in between the election season. Let's all go find a hobbies to keep us busy for Gods' sake.

The founding fathers really meant for us to do other things besides talk about tax rates every damn day of the year. You want to change the employment situation, then get a job, if you've got one help someone else. Start with your family and work your way out to friends, and on to acquiantances and then on to strangers. Got too much and feel guilty about it? then give somebody something you dont need. You want to do something about education? then go volunteer for lunchroom duty at the local elementary school.

Stop expecting these half-wit lawyers in Washington to improve your lives. You can improve your life all by yourself, you don't need John Edwards to sue someone for you to get a better life.

1 "The founding fathers really meant for us to do other things besides talk about tax rates every damn day of the year." - well said, Varifrank. I vote we join the militia instead ;-). On an only-slightly-more-serious note, though, the leftist agenda in this country for almost a century has been to incapacitate the people and empower the government, and we'd be amazed at what we "ordinary people" could accomplish if we all remembered our power and started working in our own spheres of influence. *happy sigh* Thanks for posting that, Sarah!
