ENOUGH ALREADY!!

Enough already!

I'm tired of all the political phone calls. We received FOURTEEN of them the other day. What gives? We have an unlisted, unpublished phone number, but the calls keep coming!

AND don't let me get started on ALL of the political post cards and flyers in our mail.

I've come up with a idea or two for the flyers and cards. I'll get some spray paint, any color, and paint the cards and flyers. Next, I'll take some tape or a big black magic marker and draw targets on them. Ta-da -- we now have some cheap homemade targets to take to the range.

Or get some clothes pins (do they even have these anymore?) and your scissors. Cut up the cards and the flyers to the size of playing cards. For those flyers that are a bit flimsy, you might have to tape or glue them together to make them a bit thicker. Now, you need to find a bicycle. Take the cut up flyer or postcard and a clothes pin. Place the card or flyer so that it protrudes into the spokes just a bit then clothespin it to the frame. Now, when you ride your bicycle, it will make like a put-put sound. Hand them out to everyone in your neighborhood. Help them attach them to their bikes.

Or fold them and make a few cuts. Unfold and you have a decorative, homemade snow flake to hang from your window or on your Christmas tree. Or, if you can figure out where in the heck all of those cards and flyers came from, take them back and deliver them back to whomever sent them. Or drop them off in the middle of the night to the campaign offices of the people running.

It's enough to drive a person nuts.

It's enough to make me want to pull my hair out (if I still had hair to pull).

Do you mute your television when the political ads come on? I'll bet a lot of you do.

ALL OF THEM -- EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM -- should only be allowed to do their politicking two weeks before election time. I'm surprised that they don't make all of this election stuff a holiday, like Halloween, or Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Give everyone time off for election vacation! That way, we can ALL give it our FULL attention. Hee hee.

Yeah, enough is enough.

I've already mailed my ballot in!

  1. I agree with you. The channel switch on our remotes are just about worn out from switching every.single.time a political commercial comes on.

    And don't get me started on the $1m they have spent on those oversized stupid postcards. I haven't read a single one, what a waste of $$$.

  2. I would love to have the money both parties have spent on mail, television and radio commercials.
