My friends and family know... that I'm a self-professed 'apolitical' kind of chicky. I hate politics. And while many have said that I would make a great lawyer or judge, I think I'll leave that to other 'left-brain' folks who have a flair for such things.
Given it's a political year, and there's no escaping the topic, I've decided to add my two cents to the recent debate. Admittedly, I don't know much about bayonets, but I do know a little something about horses. They're stocky, loyal, intuitive and with a little training, they're dependable as hell (sounds like my ideal mate). I may digress from here ;)
I watched approx. 20 minutes of the entire 3 debates and sadly I walked away feeling unenlightened and uninspired. Why does this give me cause for pause? Maybe because I still believe in civility, respect and treating others the way we'd like to be treated.
The world is filled with too many mud-slingers and cheerio-pissers. It's time for a positive spin on things, don't ya think? That said, I'm considering throwing my hat into the ring and creating a new political party (I haven't received enough hate mail as MLS President ;)
Some may think I'm already a little looney... even my daughter said I must be having a mid-life crisis (this, for wanting to trade-in my gas guzzling SUV for a two-seater)... What the fish?! In any case, I'd like to think of my newfound political persuasion as a mid-life awakening. Yes, indeed... an awakening!
So my friends, I'd like to introduce you to my new political party... it's got a fab acronym... BAP, and it has a better zing than GOP, not to mention a cuter mascot than the other guys who sport a donkey (who picks a donkey anyway?). I'm becoming a Possibilitarian... just in the nick of time to fling some fairy dust over people at the polls. Yes folks, they say anything is possible!
