ELECTION UPDATE

I don't know what to write.

I'm not going to vote.

To me the biggest problems, the problems that eclispe all other problems, even the unemployment rate and the national debt and the Iraq War are Global Warming and Peak Oil.

None of the candidates talk about these things.

There should be snow on the ground right now. Yesterday I was in the mountains of PA, and there should have been at least 2 to 3 feet of snow there. There was when I was a kid at this time of the year. It should have been like 18 degrees. Instead there was no snow and I was wearing a hoody. The average high for yesterday is 32 degrees for Clarion PA. Yesterday the high was 54. It broke the record by 3 degrees.

If gas prices hit 6 dollars a gallon, no one will be able to drive to work anyway.

So what does unemployment, the amount of good jobs, education, illegal mexicans and a million other little problems matter if no one can drive to work, the south has no water, the farmers in the midwest bread basket don't have rain, if semi-truck companies can't afford gas.

You might notice that a lot of your products are getting smaller. Companies are spending so much on gas that they are making their products smaller to fit more in the trucks. Where I work, just at a little steak house. Today we are changing our 9 once sirloin to a 7 once sirloin. Instead of having a delmonico, we are having a 7 once ny strip. Instead of giant sweet potatoes we are getting little tiny ones. And this has happened all through the menu.

I guess this is going to shampoo, body washes, and all kinds of other products.

But the thing is, you are still paying the same. A person will be paying the same for a little sweet potato as a giant one.

These are just facts though. The candidates aren't dealing with facts. They are dealing with sad people that want to maintain a world where everyone has cars, houses, microwaves, giant televisions with cable, block buster movies staring Tom Cruise, Oscar shows, Mcdonalds, a world where people are born into a place where they never have to learn to make their own clothes, build their own well, bury their own garbage, live in an emotionally isolated state of alientation because it is better to drive places and watch reality television.

someone said somewhere on the internet, 'the election gives me the feeling that most americans probably have when they watch a tv sitcom'

and i thought that strange

and that it is the same thing

and i felt annoyed at that person

I guess none of that stuff would matter either if foreign countries are going to gang up on us and make us bite the curb because we're power hungry assholes. It might help if Obama became a representative. It might prove to the world how we're not just a bunch of dumb white people.

I don't know. I cracked open Obama's best seller at a bookstore near campus and thought he had the writing style of an eigth grader with an expensive education. No flash; but's that's probably good.

The choices have been much worse I suppose. I remember not too long ago when it was 'choose between bad or worse'. Now it's mediocre versus decent, which makes at least not hopeless which lends for optimism with time.

I might vote.

you should all vote. it might count. you never know. that's why i vote. because it might count. i voted in the primaries. i voted for obama. i bought his book. then i went home and watched reality tv. a show about celebrities with drug problems. with what's his name, from loveline. i thought about what's his name from loveline who i think is very self-assured and confident and masturbated to the idea of being self-assured and confident and then drank some unsuccessfully. i drink unsuccessfully. i haven't read a book in months. i was scolded this week for working overtime and not getting paid for it. i've started rereading the bible. you should vote.
