    Simple Pleasures

    I got home from the range early today. Of course, I voted on my way home. Now, I don't know what is happening around your neck of the woods, but we've been beseiged by political phone calls.

    So, I've done my civil duty and voted. Now, I'm answering every call- seven so far and counting..... I'm having so much fun screwing with the callers, it's probably an damn good indication I need a life.

    If a Democratic poll person calls, I'm telling them I voted Republician and if a Republician calls, I'm saying the opposite. Just doing my part to screw up the exit polls!

    I actually had one almost go speechless when I told her I voted already.

    She asked if I voted Democrat- I responded with "Why would I do that- I pay enough taxes all ready".

    She said, "Oh, so you're happy with the way things are?" I said, "No!"

    She asked, "What are you not happy about?" I said, "There's too many Democrats in office as of right now."

    She said, "Well, hopefully we'll still be around next year." I replied, "Maybe if enough Republicians get elected, you'll all just move to Canada or something; isn't that the usual thing you guys say?"

    She hung up on me!

    Ah, the fun a person can have just by answering the phone!

    Ha..... I had some lady call me this morning on my CELL PHONE. I asked them, "Who are you representing? And what was your name again"

    She answered, "My name is Rachel, I am calling on behalf of the Democratic (something or another)... blah blah...organization supporting Granholm for governor."

    So I came back with, "oh…. you want me to vote for Granholm?" She of course said yes.

    That's when I told her that I had planned to vote for Granholm, “but now that this phone call woke me up from my nap, I am voting Republican.”

    She was dumbfounded and didn't know what to say. She apologized and asked if she could call back another time. I couldn't resist, so I told her to try back tomorrow.

    She said, "but election day is today." I rebutted, “I know that, I already voted."

    She hung up. I called the # back and asked to speak with her. She actually answered the phone and I said, “Hey.... (long pause) .... BIIIIIIIIIIIIITCH! ! ! ! (for those Drew & Mike fans out there) don't hang up on me, and I hung up.

    I felt better after that.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Most people hate junk phone calls, but I love them! Asking them what they're wearing or if they want to go out to get a bite to eat always makes them uncomfortable!

    I am SO FED UP with politicians acting like Gods and as if they were NOT responsive to our needs and wishes. You can tell that they care less except when it comes to their own pocketbooks or war chests. Most of them vote relative to there own party and influential leaders or businessmen. That is where there money is!!
    When is the last time you saw or met with a politician at a town meeting or group meeting and being able to really express your feelings and thoughts on government issues....
    I was a member of a police union when I heard another board member ACTUALLY say they would NOT go by the vote of the board because they voted the other way. When I told them that you had to back the boards vote of members, I was informed that it would damage there career goal and chances of transfer, etc. This really disgusted me as an active member, who believed in the democratic process.
    WHY can't just a FEW political leaders take a stand and show the true way of meeting with there constituents and then voting the way their voters expressed. Of course, this would mean meeting with many of them across there local boundaries and LISTENING and TALKING and REPORTING BACK to them. God help us!!
    Sorry about the rant but I had to get that off my chest.
    You ALL take care and be safe out there and cover each other!!

    I've been getting calls on my home and cell phone lately.

    I got a call yesterday from a person wanting me to vote for our current TN Gov. Bredesen (Dem). I asked her if she knew what it means when you fly the US flag upside down, she said no. So I explained it to her. I then asked her if she wanted people who like to fly US flags upside down in political office, she said no. So I told her, good, i'll vote for Bryson (Rep) then, Seeing how our current Gov. is flying our own state flag upside down in his ads.

    How the hell do you expect to be govenor if you can't even figure out which way the flag goes? Yes we have a harder than average flag, that makes it easier to weed out the morons. It's two stars up fool!


    I had someone call my cell early this morning, and they didn't even know my name. Instead of telling her my name when she asked, I returned the question "You called me, WHO are you?" When she told me she was with the (dem) ford campaign, I gave her a fake name. I told her I'd love to vote, but didn't have any means of transportation. She then offered to send someone to come pick me up. Well i'm working the front desk today, so I gave the address for here, and an hour later this van pulls up, the guy gets out, comes in and says he's here to pick up Tom Wicker (my spur of the moment fake name). I'm like "he's not ready to go yet, he's still in lockup". He replies with "well how long will he be, i'm 'spose to take him to go vote". I then asked him if he was aware it was illegal for felons to vote, or if he was intentionally trying to help felons vote. Before he could say anything more than "I uh..." I announced "you know you can be arrested for that right?" and started reaching for my handcuffs. He started apologizing profusely and saying he didn't know Tom was a felon, and left.

    It wasn't the greatest prank by far, and ronin's was much better, but i'm happy at least in giving someone a scare and wasting their gas.

    I don't know why, but I always get called by the democraps, and never by the republicans. Not that I want to be called at all, there is a rerason i'm unlisted, but still. It seems like I'd get calls from the party i'm registered as.

    No calls today.

    I guess they just don't care anymore now that the damage is done....

    But Memphis gave me one helluva idea for the next time around. I didn't even think about the whole "we'll come get you and take you to vote" thing. I bet I can get a few people to show up playing that angle.
