Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 10/19/2016

19 October 2016 at 10:11:25 AM

Heads down this week working on some code for some charts. Since starting to code with php a few years ago, I've gotten better and better, including looking at other's code and seeing how to modify it. And, getting geared up to repair the oven glass door. I'm cooking on top of the stove right now. Although this isn't the same model, found a video on how to get to the glass and replace it, looks fairly easy. 

This is very cool. Lighting up a Norwegian forest with lights

Turns out there's an award for EVERYTHING. La Porte wins 2016 "Tank of the year". My favorite continues to be, in Kentucky, the "Florence Y'all" that was originalliy named for Florence Mall. 

Another debate tonight? Hah, I saw Exedrin is pushing the hashtag #DebateHeadache in preparation. 

Incidentally, can we all just STOP with quoting people in print about stuff like Sotomayer hitting Scalia with a baseball bat? You know she was kidding, not plotting some murderous activity. I have, in my own life, said things like this, with NO MURDEROUS INTENT, more hyperbole meant to show that what was being said or someone was doing was annoying. i'll bet you have, too. 

Hah. It isn't that Marco Rubio is taking the high road about wikileaks, it's that he can see that his day might be coming. 

Groom dumps bride after he sees her without makeup. Reminds me of what Judge Judy said, that she would get up early in the monring BEFORE HER HUSBAND WOKE UP, to put on makeup. My hub is always telling me that he thinks I look great without makeup. I suspect he's saying that to save a dime, which he will not do as long as I have breath in my body and eyeliner in my bag:)

The newspaper Aletihad reported that the couple went swimming at the Al Mamzar beach in Sharjah – and he saw her ‘features change’ after her make-up washed off.

He realised that not only did she wear a lot of make-up, she’d had cosmetic surgery and wore false eyelashes and coloured contacts

I'm with this person

People are quick to judge me or get angry with me when they learn about my intention to vote third party, especially on social media with comments, statuses, or shared memes. My peers tell me that I’m wasting my vote, that I’m lazy, or that I’m just trying to be seen as different. Older voters tell me over and over again about the Nader election, when the Green Party candidate supposedly split the progressive vote and gave the reins over to Bush.

Regardless of who is getting mad at me, they always use the same argument: that I’m giving the election over to whichever candidate they hate the most. How can I be helping and hurting both Clinton and Trump at the same time? People just want to get mad at anyone who isn’t voting for their team.

I really don’t see my vote as a waste. Yes, I am fully aware that either Trump or Clinton will definitely be president. And, yes, I know that I’m in a swing state where the stakes are higher. But that doesn’t mean that my third-party vote doesn’t count for anything.

To me, it is a deliberate stand against the two-party system. It’s a stand against the Democratic Party, a way to communicate to them that they need to address the more progressive wing of this country and shift their policies to the left. It’s just one part of a larger movement that includes electing third-party politicians on a local level, grassroots activism, and change from the bottom. We need to chip away at the system at every level.

Ugh. democrat inciting violence at republican rally. Add this to WhyDemocratsArenotBetterThanRepublicans

Shut up, Facebook
