Friends With Benefits
"When I was a boy".....and only white men voted, things were much simpler. Boss Crump reigned and a favor begat a vote. We all went to bed after casting our ballots and woke up to the answer, which nobody disputed.

A democrat was a democrat and a republican was a republican. Nobody crossed those lines....not even when the other party's candidate seemed to be a bit more sane. Projections would have been absurd. It ain't over til the fat lady sings to us.

Ahh...but things are different these days. There is a megabucks industry dependent on voters for their big salaries and celebrity status. For the first time in history, voters have seized their hard earned right to speak their peace ( all of 'em....regardless of gender or ethic background or age ) by voting.

The only thing scarier than wondering if your vote counts is not knowing how much of the latest Al Jazeera broadcast you actually saw. He probably said something about yo momma in the un-edited version. Hmm....sounds suspiciously like Watergate with those missing minutes.

"They" say that bloggers have influenced this election tremendously. I'd have to say that's a truth....because blogging is a freedom that we as Americans are fortunate to have. Ditto for peaceful demonstration and pursuit of happiness.

The thing that bothers me the most about this country and its' citizenry, is the sense of entitlement that many seem to have. Feed me...gimme a flu shot....make MY vote count....make it go my way. Make other folks live by MY rules and punish them if they don't.

Friends with benefits.

Y'all call me this weekend and tell me who won.

And keep the faith. ^j^
