Just a little story I thought that I would share with you all. Last Friday while sitting in the lunch room during our dinner break, ( I work night shift) there were about 10 people sitting around engaging in a little political discourse about our new president, his fiscal and monetary policies, the action recently taken on Gitmo, the stimulus package, etc. Suddenly I blurted out the question, "How many of you took the time out of your busy schedules to vote"? Just as I thought. Not one hand went up. Of course they came up with the usual excuses. "Doesnt do any good anyway", "It doesnt matter who gets in there, they're all the same" blah blah. One guy is from Portugal and not an American citizen so he would have a legitamate excuse but he sits around bragging about how he cheats on his taxes every year and only lets the government have $1000 of his $55,000 yearly income and continually complains about the United States and what a great country Portugal is. Yet he stays here. Go figure. I know I am rambling now. Thanks for letting me vent.
