Off To The Polls

Some say that because I do not vote, I’ve no right to complain after the polls close. I’m here ta tell ya that I do indeed have the right to complain, ‘n here I’m tellin ya why!!!

Where’s the little box on the ballots ta check off if’n ya wants ta vote for None of the Above?? Was there ever a time that “None of the Above” was on the ballots??? Was “None ‘a the Above” gaining a little too much popularity???? Are we not all entitled to our own opinions, and with the right to express them???

Then pray do tell!!! When I go to the voting polls, where the dilio is the little box for me to check off to let the goobernment of this country know that there’s not one of ‘em I’d trust without shame, and of clear conscience ta run my household, never mind my constituency, my province, my country or state?? Nor, for that matter, to have anything to do with representing my interests in the field of international politics.

As well, I would be interested ta know what percentage of the voters would vote “None of the Above”. So should, I would like to think, every voter have an interest in knowing. And Hell!! Wouldn’t we have the right to know?? We know how many votes each candidate acquired. We know what percentage of votes each party obtains. Where is there a column in these stats what reflects the feelings, ‘n opinions of folk such as myself who believe not one of these candidates to be worthy ‘a takin on the posts they’s runnin for.

Politician:  (n) (synonyms)

representative, political figure, candidate, official, legislator, office-bearer, statesman, stateswoman

There Ya go!! Straight out ‘a the thesaurus!! Funniest danged thang though, the only time I hear these terms bein used is on the news, ‘n mostly during electoral process. What do I generally hear in conversation amongst the blue collar community?? It’s no small wonder they don’t add ‘em to the thesaurus, as there just ain’t a big enough book ta cover ‘em all!! Starting I spose in the “A’s” with azzwipe, ‘n endin in the “Z’s” with zombie. Including a few choice ones such as thieves, rat bastards, communists, backstabbers, koch knockers, and a large angry mouthful of others. Often with multiples ‘a these strung together to form a complete sentence, sort of. i.e.: Koch knockin muther phuckin thieving communistic backstabbing lying rat bastards!!!! This no doubt, would be someone who really wants ta make they’s point known. Does this person have the opportunity as well as the right to make they’s point known on voting day?? NO!!! Apparently, there’s no little box fer someone ta let they’s opinion be known if’n they’s honest informed opinion is, None of the Above!!!”

 

None of the Above” is my party, and I’ll complain if’n I wants to!!

Update: On advice of Niece Kelly’s comments made Sept 24, 2011, I am now a participating member of the voting public. Although it disgusts me that there is not a check box for none of the above, and that the number of voters liken to myself are not made public, an unmarked ballot does so seem the next best thang.   Smile

I do so hope and wish to see the day of a ‘Global Governing Body’ party with name on every ballot around the globe, and with position I could take pride in supporting. A single Political Party with Courage, Compassion,  Conviction and Commitment to one single simple mandate …

~ Green Peppers … Influenced ~   3 comments

There are times such that I really should refrain from tryin ta think on three (or more) different things at the same time. It can get confusing … especially under the influence. *wee chortles … * Ya gots ta love it though. A little something to maintain that delicate balance betwixed sanity, and insanity.

The words in thought from all what rambles through me wee nuget kind ‘a tumble out in a heap, and ordering a particular thought is like tryin ta put a jig-saw tagether. Like lookin for the pieces what kind ‘a look like that tree in the picture. … So, if I pick up the pieces what kind ‘a look like the green pepper, it would go somethin like this. …

What The Phuck Man!!! … How does the price of green peppers go from less than a dollar a pound, I’m thinkin bout a year ago, to ‘Four Dollar’ a pound as it is today?? In the course of about One year??

         That’s … FOUR      PHUCKIN      DOLLARS           a POUND!!!!!!!!

              It’s plain ole Green Peppers fer quap sakes!! 

                          Does That Not Seem a Wee Tad     INSANE!!!!

What are these corporate mooks goin ta be tellin me?? Green Peppers is turned to GOLD?? They goin ta tell me some Cold Snap in Californicate is done it?? How could that be with all ‘a that hot air they had blowin about out there. Arnold was Governor fer quap sakes!! Im tellin ya Man!!! It’s drivin me NUTS!!!! 

I can just imagine the last line of Arnold’s ‘Gone With the Windspeech. … I’ll Be Back!!!

Have we become conditioned?? Have we become so conditioned as to expect, and accept that every time we hear there bin some nasty bad thing happen somewheres, the price ‘a some danged thang or t’other is going Up??? … So conditioned that the powers to be wait with bated breath for the next escuse to Jack up the prices?? Guaran-Dang-Teed???  I mean Shyte Man!! This or that may or may not effect the supply to the demand, but up goes the prices just as a matter ‘a standard practice. When do they come down?? When is the catastrophe done with??

     Price Hikes. … Ya hear Hydro goin ta be havin at us again?? Yeah!! They’ll have ta put a little more extra lube on they bills fer the next couple ‘a months. Till we get used to it.      

It makes me laugh, the only thing I can laugh about when it comes to the oil spill in the Golf of Mexico, that I don’t recall hearing that the price ‘a gas was going up on account ‘a that oil spewing into the gulf, turning it into an environmental kill zone. Not directly anyways. Certainly not a lot. Not by any great and lofty ideals. That’s why the rat bastards is gone ‘n invented … The Libya Thang

I  remember!! … Do you remember?? Do you remember the daze when a dime bag was a dime?? A sawbuck!!     Ten bucks a bag, Man!!  Whatever in Mother Nature’s almost green earth (somewhat green .. still), did happen to they daze???

So, Yeah … That Libya Thingy!!! *sheesh … *

Natural Disasters … i.e.: War, Drought, Hale, Hurricane, Tsunamis, all nature ‘a shyte what can effect the price ‘a somethin or another, but they ‘Cracker Heads’ couldn’t hold we wee peons responsible for that one. The Gulf oil spill was BP’s  Fault, and gall dangitBP’s  dammit well going ta be footin the tab for it!!  … Yeah Right!!!

     Get in line and bend over Muther Phucker!!    The ‘Sunshine’ pump is right over Here!!!

            Thank You Libya … *shhhhhhhsh … *  {That’s just ta throw the cent off to they corporate, and Gooberment rat bastards so’s they won’t know that I know that they know that I know.}

        So there ya goes … That’s pretty much all ‘a the pieces what kind ‘a look like…

               Golden Green Pepper  Enjoy Peace.
