Had to wait until after I had seen SNL’s take on the third debate

and, of course, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, to post.  The debate itself made me sick to my stomach.

Pick a decade and see what each of the candidates was up to.

Closer to Home

I started reading over all of my voting mailings and was aghast by Oro Valley’s Proposition 439.  The Future General Plan asks for high-quality parks, the best streets in the region, and good schools.  Just good.  Not high-quality, not the best in the region. Unfortunately, I don’t know what the previous General Plan said – mediocre schools? What a great place to live.

Vote Early, and Vote Often

Not really – that’s the tongue-in-cheek political motto of Chicago.  But let’s get a big turnout.  Don’t let happen what occurred in Colombia:

Voters in Colombia have rejected a landmark peace deal with Farc rebels… The deal was signed last week by President Juan Manuel Santos and Farc leader Timoleon Jimenez after nearly four years of negotiations [after a 52-year-old war]… But in a surprise result, 50.2% of voters rejected the agreement compared with 49.8% who voted for it… Turnout was low with fewer than 38% of voters casting their votes.

One Response to “Meltdown”

  1. Jim Says:

    In Peru, they volted for president this year. All of the villagers went to Iquitos to vote, because those who did not vote had to pay a hefty fine.
