I Need An Exemption!

Let's wise up, people! (says Terrie, my friend, Suzette's terrier)


My previous post extolled the virtues of my "complaint-free world" bracelet that I've started wearing and must switch to the other wrist whenever I complain...about anything! I have really, really tried. I'd say my complaining about minor issues has been cut in half. EXCEPT FOR POLITICS!

This is not the year to stop complaining COLD TURKEY. And, to exploit the favorite subject this week from the "talking heads" ...it's making me bitter.

Okay, folks. Enough is enough. No matter which side you're on, let's debate what's really important. Health care, the economy, Iraq, housing crisis, climate change, anything that doesn't revolve around the "horrors" of the word, bitter.

Are voters really as shallow as the press portrays? I'd love to hear some opinions.

(Whew! Glad I took politics out of the complaint/bracelet equation.)

Yup. It's up to us voters to pave the road to change.

At least this year's election is NOT boring and that is something to cheer about! And that I am no longer teaching high school with 150+ teens repeating their parents' opinions with no thought behind them.

Yep, Janet. Honest, open dialogue would help! Your comment is spot-on!

Oh, Zan Marie! I can't imagine the stress! Glad you're out of that, too. Thanks for commenting.

I think people are yearning for a hero. And Obama is such a charismatic speaker.
I don't think people are shallow. Just very tired and overworked. Head down and march onward mentality, I think.

Great post!
