Nothing Else Matters

This entry will stay at the top of the page until the polls close in Hawaii. Read it, e-mail all your “undecided” friends and tell them to read it, and then scroll down for the other stuff.

While huffing and puffing on the torture-me machine at the gym, trying not to watch the televisions, because I’m in news overload (will somebody please just medicate me until it’s over?) into the corner of my eye intruded something about yet another poll. The question had to do with what issues people felt most strongly about going to the polls–i.e. national security, health care, the economy, etc.

In a perfect world, we could worry all day long about health care and the economy. A CrankyBeach Clue-BatTM upside the head to those economy and health care voters. Get your nose out of your navel and think of something bigger for a change. If national security fails, there will be no economy or healthcare to worry about!

Ask the people who had to choose between fire and a long death drop what matters more. Ask the people who sacrificed their lives aboard Flight 93 and thus saved the White House or the Capitol. Ask any of the 3000 souls who departed this earth that day.

And then go vote your conscience.
