    Angry Thank GOD for November 8th!!

    I am so freakin' sick of all these sleazy douchebag politicians invading my home and my life for the past few months. This is Monday, the 6th of November and I swear to GOD that I received twelve phone calls today from political campaigns and I watched TV for only three hours today and saw no less than about twenty political commercials. At this point in time, I am going to vote for the candidates who did not yet piss me off. Lesson to be learned for those of you who consider running in the future!

    Thank GOD it's over in 24 hrs and I hope everyone bagged their limit. Damn! Just leave me alone!

    I encourage everyone to get out and vote. Voting for, and putting in office, a politician, is more important than ever before.

    Remember, you can only complain but so much when you don't vote.

    indeed... this shit is annoying. Especially since most, if not all candidates who go out and advertise just sit around badmouthing everyone else most of the time... Im tempted to just vote for anyone who hasn't been talking shit...

    Glad you're all as sick of politicians over there.

    I honestly can't bring myself to vote for anyone one here.
    They are all as bad as each other.
    My last vote was more about keeping a certain party out than trying to put one in.
    the sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

    I voted already via absentee ballot as I was supposed to be traveling this week. I am so sick of the phone calls, the mailings, and the campaign literature that I find almost daily wedged inside my storm door.

    I love not having a house phone. I haven't gotten a single phone call, and TV-ads can be muted

    Here are some Propositions I'd like to see:

    Prop TS: The TeleShock Prop. Allows a shock feature on your phone. May only be used for telemarketers though.

    Prop FL: The Fast Lane Prop. Fines anyone using the fast lane at, or below the speed limit.

    Prop 911: A surcharge on anyone using 911 for 411, or who hangs up on 911 and doesn't answer on call-back because their too embaressed to say "oops."

    Prop NotYoMamma: A surcharge on anyone using law enforcement for their "out of control" kids.

    Prop OrYourDaddy: A surcharge for anyone using law enforcement because the other parent is 10 minutes late returning the kids from visitation. Also provides for additional charges for anyone that can't exchange their kids in a civil manner, thereby involving law enforcement to babysit you both.

    Do not puff, shade, skew, tailor, firm up, stretch, massage,
    or otherwise distort statements of fact.

    lol... not bad... especially the phone shocker

    by the way, does anyone know what the caller ID is supposed to say on a 911 call-back? Some guy accidently called 911 from my house before and hung up , but I dont think they ever called back.. (and the guy didn't tell me what he did...) I just answered the door a while later and found a pair of cops standing there... Confused the hell outta me... lol

    The 911 callback here comes up as coming from either the county or city.

    And no, I was being good. I called in a burglarly in progress across the street, she said "thank you, we'll send an officer right over" and disconnected. I think the responding officers told her to get me back on the phone ASAP so they could find out where the BGs were. That was a fun night for almost everyone. The officers were laughing and joking after, but the BGs didn't seem too happy. The cops here have a great sense of humor though, I jokingly asked them if they wanted to give us a hand moving furniture around the living room, and they did. A hand as in a round of applause, that is.

    Should show the agency name, or county and a regular phone number.

    Did your friend make a call right after he hung up on 911? We usually try 2 call backs and an interrupt when the line is busy, but we don't keep trying after that.

    I dont know If he made a call or not afterward...

    Whats an interrupt? Do you beep the phone like a call-waiting thing, or just sort of jump into their ear and start talking? Never heard of that... pretty cool...

    sorry, im too tired to think right now...

    We have the operator break thru and announce that the Sheriff's department wants to talk to them, then they put us through.

    Anyone can do that - regular folks get charged for it though.

    I voted. I feel all citizenish now.

    Yeah, now we just have to see outdated bumper stickers for the next decade. I don't care who anybody voted for, but damn, there's so many '04 bumper stickers running around here still that I could scream. Hell, i've even seen a couple of '00!
