Winter lingers in the trees, spring shimmers in the pond.
April first and I was thinking. I know that is shunned upon but I still try. Thanksgiving a Holiday where families get together, perhaps the most family oriented holiday where we put our differences aside. But every four years [2 if you count the off presidential election years] the coming of this holiday is mired in an election. During the 3.5 years of campaigning mud slinging, lying, bribing and dirty tricks we are subjected to are followed by a meal with family where the winners are gloating and the losers are sour. Of course there is that off hanging chad year where the fraud is so prevalent that it can’t be photoshopped out of our consciousness so we give our rights over to the courts for a fair decision. Ha ha ha ha. I digress. So as I dosed off last night I thought “Maybe we should change election day to April First?” It seems to me that would be more reflective of the true nature of the Democratic Process that for the last 3.5 years we have had rammed down our collective throats. Happy April Fools Day and don’t forget to get your taxes paid for some where there is a CEO and a Senator without enough fuel to fly the private jet to Palm Springs. enjoy pjc
