Election 2010 - How many wasted trees??? How many wasted dollars???
Ok, it's Election time all over the country.
I'm just one guy with one house, one address, and about one million political fliers sitting on my front porch. You'll easily recognize my house by the politically littered front yard. When ever I come home form my "day job", it gives me great pleasure to tear up the political junk fliers and leave them on the porch and to let them fly around my yard. You'd think the next guy passing out misleading political BS would get the hint that I'm not interested in reading about empty promises, and mud slinging - opponent bashing, right? Nope... Wrong, Wrong, Wrong!
So now election time is upon us, I think it's safe to clean up my yard and recycle all those political tree carcasses. No wait! ... I think instead I'll make an art project out of them.
Is anyone else confused and frustrated by the waste of paper, time and MONEY on elections? Does anyone else toss and turn in bed at night wondering how many million pounds of paper gets tossed into the landfill during an election? Can you even begin to imagine how many millions, if not billions of dollars could have gone to support social causes, rather than to try and persuade us to vote a certain way without ever really giving us anything to sink our teeth into? Has the election process become nothing more than a reality TV show?
So how will I vote? Easy, see the collage I made below to help me decide.
Other interesting news:
Meg Whitman spent $150 MILLION of her own "hard earned" dollars on her campaign for California Governor. The billionaire former eBay CEO learned that not everything is up for auction! Just imagine what $150,000,000 could have done for so many worthy causes. *sigh* Only in America!
Carly Fiorina, multi-millionaire and former Hewlett-Packard CEO also learned a similar lesson in the US Senate race.
No Ladies, Money CAN'T buy you love... or an election in this case.
One last rant: Now that California's Prop 19 to legalize marijuana has failed, we'll just have to keep getting into fights, smashing our cars, killing people, and destroying our livers with the legal and, much safer, and very profitable drug... alcohol.
