Did you hear that?
No? EXACTLY my point. It's quiet.
Not one political ad polluting the air.
I hope you got your vote on. I did!
You know what that means?
Absolutely correct, I have a valid, unrestricted license to bitch!
How about yours?
It should be illegal to bitch with a suspended or expired license.
I don't know about anyone else but I love voting.
I love going to the polls.
I love to walk in and have people look me in my face and know that I have a voice and I am going to exercise it.
I like to think on election days that people are looking around with the understanding that we are all in this together.
Standing there as I was yesterday; exhausted from working night shift, in uniform, shirt unbuttoned and untucked, mp3 player in my ears, dreadlocks flowing; I hope that it says loud and clear I will not shut up. I will not be ignored. I have not forgotten what it cost a great deal of people for me to have the right to have my say.
I tell you, voting is a joy.
Watching election results...well some years that is a very different story.
Although it was a joy this year....Uncle Blackwell lost. Poor Tom....er, Ken.
