Reminding You to Get Out There and Vote on Tuesday!

It's no good living in a representative democracy if you don't even bother to vote. You're voting this year. No excuses.

It's no good living in a representative democracy if you don't even bother to vote. What's the matter? Scared of the polling booth? Don't be. My baby and I went down to our county building for early voting yesterday. We waited for almost an hour in line. If she can wait patiently with only an apple to munch on, what's your problem? Take your smartphone, your magazine, and your franchise, and vote.

No, seriously, do you not understand what women went through to vote not even a 100 years ago? Beatings, arrests, protests, and worse. TO VOTE. So get your lazy bum to the polls. Get out there and vote on Tuesday. Take your kids (I always do; I want them to see me voting.) Most polling places are open 7am-8pm on Tuesday. I don't want to hear any excuses. And thank you.

One Resolution for 2012: Get Out of the House with My Kids

2011 wasn’t a big year for getting out on the town. Or really, out of the house at all for that matter...
