Politics

I never realized how politics worked in the states while we lived overseas. Now I know. With all the polling phone calls, folks at the door, and TV commercials it’s almost continual. Now I don’t mind talking to someone, but the robocalls get hung up on. I’m not going to give any information to a machine. That’s plain silly. We’ve had two of the local politicians come to the door looking for a vote. My wife listened to one, and the other wasn’t that interesting and I was courteous, but sent him on his way. Well, that and he was here at 9 in the morning. That’s just not right. We’re retired, and don’t like to be bothered early. 😉

I’ll be so glad when the election is over. All the BS in the commercials is really getting old. You can’t watch a show without being bombarded with it. I guess it’s a way to get the word out, but all the snickering is silly. State your case. Don’t try to stick it to your opponent. It doesn’t work for me, and I doubt it works for others.
