VOTE

I found a new shop online that I’m totally crushing on right now.

It’s Akira.com and they have quirky designs that I love.

Take for instance this GET OUT AND VOTE shirt, which I just purchased:

Now, I’m not sure if wearing it is going to encourage people to vote.

I certainly hope so.

I will probably pair this shirt with some edgy black pleather leggings, a rhinestone belt, a white handbag with black trim accents and some seriously kick ass black booties.

My birthday is the day before election day this year and I plan to wear this shirt dress ALL DAY LONG in support of democracy and the democratic process, in the hope that this election year the popular vote matches the electoral college vote.

One can only hope.

Outrageous

I voted.

I can’t remember the last time I skipped voting.

I think it’s important to make my voice and opinions heard, regardless of whether or not I’m a huge fan of the candidates, measures, or propositions.

This is not a political blog.

I don’t write about my political beliefs, although I do occasionally let my distaste for certain politicians be known.

I have a few friends who have a different political persuasion than me.

And honestly, I have found that NOT DISCUSSING POLITICS is the best way to stay friends.

But sometimes I JUST HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING.

And for that, I don’t apologize.

I have at least one friend who is to some degree a Trump supporter.

The other day he posted on his Facebook page that he was never going to watch Saturday Night Live again because a cast member made a joke about veterans.

I think the joke was in poor taste and missed its mark.

I don’t watch SNL nor do I plan to.

However, I found it HUGELY ironic that my friend felt this was worthy of a boycott while still supporting a man who joked about sexually assaulting women.

Grab them by the pussy.

It’s just locker room talk.

Totally excusable.

But heaven forbid someone make a bad joke about veterans.

I’m not excusing the veteran joke.

It was a bad joke and other castmates have spoken out against it.

However, if you’re going to get outraged about things people say, then I think that outrage over someone bragging about sexually assaulting women is not misplaced.

If we generously ASSUME Trump was making a joke, I personally think both “jokes “are distasteful and worthy of my spite.

Just saying.
