It's a brand new day!

Yeah the sun is high!

All the birds are singin' cause... er... Obama's... the guy?

Now if I could just ignore my father's grumblings about moving to Canada, and how the Arabs are going to take over. I just keep patiently reminding myself that patricide is still considered a faux pas in even today's modern society.

And now if we could just slap California with a collective clue-by-four...

(At least both of our Amendments went the way I wanted them to, although it wasn't anything as important as in CA. Just a proposal to allow limited video lotto terminals to be set up, with at least some proceeds going to fund education, and one to allow early voting, so I won't have to be all envious of y'all that got it over with early for the next elections.)

That's my thought process..."Why Canada?"

Still, though. I mean, yes, the "Conservative party" in Canada is in power, but...I do no think it means what they think it means.

Yeah, but it's not a very good one.

"Mommy, if you don't give me a cookie, I'll...eat my vegetables!"

Yeah, I suspect it's more or less a "get the hell out of the country because we lost here" rather than thinking it through as to a really good place to live.

(Er, not that I'm trying to imply Canada's a bad place to live, but if you're a Conservative looking to move someplace more in line with your thinking...)

if you're a Conservative looking to move someplace more in line with your thinking...

... you should try Iran, or Somalia.

Depending on whether you're a theocrat or a kleptocrat, of course.

But both places have already implemented *all* of your policies! They're paradises!

Doesn't make sense to me either; perhaps people misunderstand politics here since Stephen Harper of the Conservatives is Prime Minister.

No marijuana decriminalisation ever passed, though; the Liberals lost power before it went ahead.

and how the Arabs are going to take over.

Meantime, the Arabic fella I'm married to is hopeful that he can stop feeling like he needs to hide his heritage, and can once again start feeling like the naturally born and raised US citizen that he is.

Yeah I know, I did confront him briefly about what exactly he meant, because I thought maybe he was going off the "Hussein" thing, but it's about Obama *gasp* wanting to pull the troops out of Iraq. For shame! Wanting to save American lives and resources. How dare he?

Well, I think he's more worried that now that we're not "taking the fight to them" they're gonna come over and invade or something. I'm not sure though, I try not to go too deep into that sorta thought process. *rolls eyes*

"Arabs" *headdesk*

My mother is probably saying the same thing, but I refuse to discuss it with her. Sigh.

Same here. I've had a "no politics" moratorium going on with almost all of my relatives during the entire election process.

My blood pressure needs no help to get to "Bad Kung-fu Sanguine Fountain" range, thank you.

Great icon!
Nov. 5th, 2008 06:07 pm (UTC)
Heh, thanks, it's one of my favorites of my own icons, and I probably don't use it enough.

Hey, I can sympathize, I made the mistake of talking politics last weekend with my sister -- she's apparently one of those Republicans who firmly believes that Obama is a Muslim. And corollary, that being a Muslim is a bad thing, on par with being a Nazi. Oh, and apparently he's racist. And yet illegal immigrants will now be camping out in emergency rooms so that no one can get medical care. And all of our taxes will be raised and given to crack-smoking welfare moms.

And this coming from a former crack-smoking welfare mom. Sheesh.

Personally, I'm just going to file that under "stupid sibling syndrome" and go back to doing my happy dance as Sarah Palin slinks back to her secessionist Pentecostal redneck friends in Alaska... :)
