Chillin’

If anyone has wondered why I haven’t continued punching the buttons of folks running for local office lately, just ponder the picture to the left.

If this was what you looked at every evening over supper (and breakfast, for that matter), would you bother wondering what the local miscreants are up to?

Nah. Anotherthing2 is covering it quite nicely. That’s where I go to see what’s really going on in my absence.

But I know that at least one of her/his questions is bound to be answered in the next day or two.

At right, Delta and Dog are enjoying a calm surf; it isn’t always so. On Monday, the undertow was so strong it swept Gamma, Delta and me all out past where we could touch the sand. Way past.

Lifeguard training from decades ago kicked in, and we all returned to shore safely. However, it was definitely time to stay shallow at that point.

And eat ice cream.

I do still care what’s going on at home, but at this point, it’s up to all of us to vote and put the best people in office. People who haven’t spent the last eight years building a political machine, sometimes crossing party lines but always extending the protection of government to certain individuals in a perversion of the American political system.

Sometimes I do have to wonder what sort of dirty laundry Beauchamp has on these elected officials to make them put up with his shenanigans.

Stay tuned.

    “always extending the protection of government to certain individuals in a perversion of the American political system”

    I think this is where you and I part ways. I don’t see this as a perversion, I see this as the American political system. It exists, now, for no other reason than to continue insuring those in power stay that way.
