Finally, it is here. I am thankful in many ways, because it means that I will be have less political propaganda to sift through when I get the mail everyday. It means that I won’t have the urge to give people with a particular candidate’s bumper stickers a big fat thumbs down. It means that we can start getting back to life when people decorated their yards with gnomes instead of banners with peoples’ faces on them. I should call the neighborhood association on some of these people. Their signs have got to be in violation of some beautification laws. When I was little, I remember my mom getting so angry about a house in our neighborhood that kept a ladder propped against the front of their house for months. I don’t think this is any different. It is annoying, ugly and telling of this country’s willingness to follow someone just because of their charisma. That’s all you will hear about it from me. I just want my city to be beautiful and civil again.
I wonder what these environmentally conscious people, who don’t think we should drill in Alaska in order to save the wildlife are going to do with all these posters when the election is over. If you fall into that category, here is a resource for you: http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/conserve/rrr/composting/index.htm.
P.S. I am thinking about running for president. I think I could give some darn good speeches.
