This Week's News Older News

From the corner booth...

I wonder if voter turnout would improve if we could turn in those "I voted" stickers for prizes? We could have little booklets in which to put the sticks so we could track the size of the prize, just like the old S&H Green Stamps (for those of you who are old enough to remember them).

Why am I posting this graphic for Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic candidate for the US Senate from Texas? Mostly because I think that his Senate opponent, Ted Cruz, is an ass, even if he is a fellow former Canadian. As a matter of fact, anyone from Canada should be upset with Ted Cruz because he gives the rest of us a bad name. Unlike the former Senator John McCain, Ted Cruz has no honor and no scruples; he has no problems sucking up to Donald Trump in spite of what Trump said about him and his wife (and his father). I wonder how Cruz's wife feels about that. As for his opinions and policies, well, there's not enough space here for me to do a complete and informative analysis of his failings. As a proud recipient of an "A+" rating (and a lot of campaign funds) from the NRA, you know he's not going to let the deaths of a few (or a lot of) school kids stop him from promoting the full agenda of the NRA.

Luckily, though, Beto's positions and ethics make him a worthy leader amd a clear choice for that office. He's trying to bring people to work together as a country. He understands the constitution and realizes how it works for everyone unlike his opponent who panders to his corporate overlords and a lot of people who aren't smart to realize that the Republican agenda is actually going to screw them over. We need more people in Congress like Beto O'Rourke. The fact that he's intelligent and shows uncommon wisdom demonstrates who's the grownup in that race. Considering the combative attitudes of the people currently in Congress, we need someone who's mature and stable to step in and make everyone go sit in their respective corners.

See you on the dance floor.
