I’ve been bored a lot lately, especially since Justin moved back onto the Mt. Whitney where a cellphone signal goes to die. I know I could be out exploring the world and stuff, but of course I’ve found myself with my laptop and an alcoholic beverage in hand. Why would you expect any more from me? Somehow, I found myself knee deep in political news articles. It’s not a hard thing to do these days after the circus that is the 2016 Presidential Election has begun. I say “begun” but really I’m several years behind, and so are you. Why? Because you shouldn’t be voting on anyone based off of their political party. No, not at all. You should be voting on a politician based off of your beliefs and what they are doing to protect them. However, you can’t trust what a politician says about gun control, abortion, foreign policy, immigration laws, etc. based off of what they said in their last press conference. Instead, you must look at what is in black and white: their voting history.
In honor of Father’s Day, I present a “flash back” piece dug up from my pre-vino vault–Vino Ramblings: High School Edition.
You know those old men who sit around telling stories about a ten-foot, one-hundred-pound fish that they almost caught? My dad tells those “big fish” stories to whoever will stop and listen.
