Destructive Ignorance

We are days away from the election and I must say I am buzzing with anticipation. I think I’m going to follow in tangobaby’s lead and vote early. Hopefully without all the delays and judges and petitions and things.

I am not writing to tell you about my desire to vote early, however, I am writing to express my complete disgust with many people’s lack of desire to critically analyze the presidential candidates. I am not here promote one candidate or another, but to urge you to find out the facts about the matters that concern you most and please don’t base your decisions on the results you got by adding letters to the names of candidates.

“I can not vote for the Obama Biden team because it’s like voting for Osama Binladen. See if you change the B with an S in Obama, it becomes oSama and then insert the insert NLA after the”i” in Biden and it becomes biNLAden for OSAMA BINLADEN”

That is part of an actual email chain that I managed to get onto. It is disturbing to me that this person is less than the usual seven degrees of separation from me.

Please don’t let yourself be caught up in non-sense because it is very likely distracting you from the things that should actually be upsetting you. Imagine if you will, what we might be missing while we are caught up in conversations about anagrams and lipstick.
