Trigger warning: Politics
A group of lunatic Republicans (like there’s any other kind left) has managed to push through a recall election on California’s governor. Election Day is September 14th, but being a sane state for the most part, EVERY registered voter gets a mail-in ballot, or you can go stand in line next month. This political stunt will cost the taxpayers of CA something in excess of $250,000,000, which seems like a particularly stupid thing to be spending funds on when we’ve got massive brush fires covering close to a million acres of the state. Oh, and that little pandemic thing also. And a monstrously huge homeless crisis. And the global warming thing that’s going to kill EVERYONE ON THE PLANET in a couple hundred years, if not much sooner.
So, yeah. Guess where I stand on the issue?
Anyway, I got my first piece of Republican propaganda in the mail today. It annoyed me. I wanted to shred it instead of simply putting it into the recycle bin.
Not good enough.
Now, mind you, I’ve got a decent shredder.
It doesn’t just cut things into strips, it does the whole cross-cut bit with little tiny pieces.
Not good enough.
So I pulled all of the shredded bits out and ran them through the shredder again!!!
Look at how much smaller and closer to total disintegration those pieces are now!!!
It took a few minutes, made a mess, and was harder than I thought, but it was worth every second.
As it says on my pinned Tweet:
I don’t think that’s a wishy-washy or vague position. Do you?
If you’re in CA, grab that ballot, vote “NO” on Question One, leave Question Two blank, and get that ballot back in to your local election board. These psychotic fascist Death Cult members have to be stopped.
