Wow. Suddenly being from Massachusetts isn’t so bad.
On a side note I did end up voting this past weekend. But still, I felt like it was a complete waste of time. Why did I vote? beats me. For some unknown reason I felt guilty not voting.
my problem is that I think the current voting system is flawed. I kind of feel guilty having voted, thus participating in a system that I don’t fully support. really though, I guess I’m not one to talk. because I have yet to come up with a better system. When I do, I’ll let y’all know.
You can be sure that my system will have at least these two improvements:
1. The candidate debate process would involve a halo showdown
2. When you cast your vote you get a free bag of jelly beans.
ahh Jelly beans. Nature’s candy.
you know? Jon Stewart should run for president.
J.S. for Prez. 2008.
It was also stated in the New York Times on September 26th that the estimated cost of going out and voting is about $10 per person. That 10 dollars could go to something a lot more useful: like buying myself 6 cans of B&M baked beans.
I struggle to see the point of voting. Especially for a Massachusetts voter. I’ll bet anyone my $10 that Kerry will win MA regardless of my vote.
I am expecting a counter arguement from Rick Richter in the comments.
In other news, Expect BIG things in tomorrow’s post. be excited!
I’m really thinking the U.S. and Canada should just throw caution to the wind and join forces thus creating a supernation. Imagine the possibilities!
yes, Americanada would quickly surpass all other countries in its coolness.
- Mounties would be seen regularly in city parks, protecting the Americanada way of life.
- Americanada businesses would have the perfect blend of polite restraint and business gung-ho.
- The drinking age would average out at 19 and a half years.
- The new national animal would be a beaver riding on the back of a bald eagle.

I’ve made my case.
If you recall, a few weeks back I said that if I were pres. Natalie Portman’s face would be put on the new nickels.
Did the current administration listen to my great ideas? no.
All we’ve got is Jefferson, Buffalos, and the Pacific Ocean.
I think I’d make a pretty awesome president. The first thing I’d do is get an aircraft carrier named after me.
u.s.s. mike d: the aircraft carrier.
It would have the words ‘AMERICA ROCKS’ painted on the side and every couple years on July 4th it would make its way back to U.S. harbors turn on its freakin’ huge sub woofers and light up the skies with fireworks and tracers. It’d be totally pimped out too, with speed flame decals on the back and a spoiler the size of my house.
Then I would pull the plug on social security. and invest the government’s money heavily into Google Stock.
I would ban boy-bands declaring them a violation of humanity’s right to “pursuit of happiness”
Natalie Portman’s face would be put onto the new Nickles.
Jessica alba would pose for the new 5 dollar bill.
