Something to Reflect Upon as this Election Plays Out


To often we enjoy the comfort …

To me the election was more a narrative about the battle for supremacy of two political ideologies tangentially focused with the concerns of everyday Americans.  I think it was easy to get caught up in the divisive political rhetoric and forget that we each face many of the same challenges daily.

Both voting without action and democracy without education are effete. The fact that many people had to be jailed, killed, hosed down, mauled by dogs beat by cops to give us the opportunity to vote shows me that voting itself while effective, is lacking without careful planning and action  inclusive of everyone beyond ideology. It’s great to get out and vote but it’s a shame if that’s where the momentum stops. We need to think of things beyond opinions and that’s just my opinion.

The Beginning

Theme Song: 

I don’t like this song but right after the black eye peas made this video in japan an earthquake happened. I think this election will shake America up in such a way that mediocrity will continue to be the goal we collectively aspire #NonsequitorLogic

My Message to America As the Elections Wind Down


With the elections winding down to a close many of us will have a lot more free time . Gone will be the days where we stalked and trolled our ‘friend’s’ Facebook page, and left them boorishly sarcastic comments about how wrong they were about everything and how right we were.

Gone will be the 10 hours & 12 pages political debates typed into a tiny box. 140 characters at the time. And most sad of all, gone will be the days when we can feign offense to give our fallacious arguments more weight. A lot of people will no longer be blocked and will rejoin the fold of humanity (social media is all about quality not quantity.)

To all of you it has been fun! It has been insightful! I can’t remember a time where I felt simultaneously oddly excited, bellicose, ashamed, fatigued and in need of a shower. (Well I do remember but there would be many legal complications pending. I l look forward to participating again in this modern day remake of  a bacchanalia again in 2016.

In the meantime I leave with these parting words:

The sun has gone
To bed and so must I

So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye

Personal Note

Announcement: I’ll be live Tweeting my First time Voting for children that’ll Inhabit the Insipid wastelands of the Future


Announcement

Tomorrow is a historic day. Not because of the election but because I am going to vote as an experiment. It is my goal to provide commentary on the election as part of a book I’m putting together. (It’s a series of  disparate reflections before during and after the  election.)  When such a precious historic moment is upon us it deserves to be recorded in the annals of history which is why I will be live tweeting my voting experience starting from whenever it is I wake up till i got to sleep. There is a lil voyeur in all of you, and I’m bring it out for my first time.

The Official Hashtag

#Poliginity (Loosing My Political Virginity)

Elections have a serious sexual subtext to them. Two candidates like the hookers in Hunt Point (Bronx NYC) tell you everything you want to hear. They get all decked out and do a little dance for you to help you pick, all the while some how magically more and more money finds its way into their ‘coffers’. In the end you’re left all alone with nothing to show for it.

 I’m pretty sure voting for the first time will pretty much be like my first time sexually it will be over quicker than expected, 50% of those who participated will feel robbed and shortchanged, and I will just want to go back to bed and cry myself to sleep  foregoing the shower  as much as I can.
