I must admit that the timing for taking on a challenge such as NaBloPoMo has been less than ideal. With a head full of congestion and eyes that prefer to slam shut at any moment it's a struggle even though it's only the second day! But to quote Shania Twain "I Ain't No Quitter".
The best thing about sleeping so much during the day
while the TV blares away providing much needed background noise, at
least I am missing about half of the political ads while I sleep. It
becomes more and more difficult to determine who and what to vote for
with the constant negativity of the ads. It's more important than ever
to do your research to make sure you are voting for what you want. You
can't take anything at face value and don't believe any of the ads.
Consider who is sponsoring the ads, look beyond the sound bite and find
out what was really said, what the candidate really supported and did
not support. I know we are all tired of hearing all of it by now and we
just want it to be over. Let's face it, we won't get anyone who will
be able to live up to all of their promises, it's democracy at
work...and that's a good thing, it just means we have to be careful what
we ask for. It's great to be allowed to show our passion for different
points of view and be able to disagree with each other, no matter who
is elected we will get through it...we are a strong country and we have
been through a lot...Can't we all just get along?
I tried to
warn you this could be a lame post...it's the best I can do when I feel
like crap. My point is that I hope you vote...no matter who you vote
for...be thankful you have the opportunity.
