It's Time!

"It was we the people, not we the white male citizens; but we the whole people who formed the union." - Susan B. Anthony

Ok, folks. This is it. It's November the 7th, 2006. You know what this means, don't you?

Of course you do. It means that you have until the polls close this evening to get your tails down to your local polling place and vote. Don't know where your local polling station is? Not sure where to go? These people can tell you.

And ladies especially, you have no excuses here as far as I'm concerned. It wasn't all that long ago that we weren't allowed to vote. Your great grandma would be spinning in her grave if she found out that the rights that she may have marched and picketed for, the rights that some women went to jail for, are not being exercised today. Back in 1920 we managed to get the men to drop the weenie check at the voting booth and let a person with a uterus cast a ballot. Don't throw that away.

Not to mention that female candidates are poised to take over a lot of seats in Congress today. Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Besides, if you don't go vote today, you are not allowed to complain about anything the government does to you for at least the next two years. That's my own personal rule and I will enforce it. (ah-hem)

You might even get a little sticker that says "I Voted" too. Won't that be nice?

Now get out there and tell Congress what you think of them! Oh, and for those of you who think that your one little vote doesn't really matter, I have three words for you....Florida and Ohio.

I agree with you 100%. Anyone (man or woman) who doesn't exercise his or her right to vote and bitches about the way our society is, those folks ought to be flogged!

And yes, I have my sticker.

Chica, I have voted in every election since I was able to, including by absentee ballot mailed by priority from Utah and do you know I don't think I have ever received one of those "I voted" stickers? Went tonight after dinner, walked to my polling place with dad and the bro, no sticker. But my vote was cast!

Ruthie, thanks for the comment. :) Luv your purty flower.

Marz and Ms.S - you go girls! So happy that you earned your right to bitch about the administration with me. But, I can't believe they did'nt give you sticker, Marz. What's up with that?

Yay! Yay!

I clearly have post-election hyperactivity disorder (p.e.h.d.) because while I'm not a democrat (Green all the way, baby!) I'm happy to see them take the house and the senate (close) and give the freaks in the white house a nice big finger.

And the abortion ban in South Dakota was overturned!

yay! yay!
