I didn't vote today.  Before you blast me (if anyone is reading this) I alwasy vote, since I was 18 all theway down to the county level (I almost nver live anywhere that has anything more local than that) and this time I decided to opt out... as a republic I have a right to opt out for a round.  Most people I know that are my age don't vote at all.  Not only do I vote (generaly) but I rally for things I suport, protest things I don't like and write my congressmen about things.  The first letter I wrote to a president was Jimmy Carter when I was six (I think) it was about nucler bombs (I didn't know he was a physicist at the time.  I only learned that during the 3-mile island problem... I live down wind and I remember clearly the fall out shelter in the basment of my school)

I'm tired and sick.  I'm sick and frustrated.  I'm not going to be able to change things.  I hate both canidates and I feel like nothing will ever change until we have more than two viable canadates.  The founding fathers did NOT invision a two party system (the fact is they didn't invision a party system at all).  This election gave me no option that I was willing to vote for I feel strongly that nither canadate is worth my vote.  Netiher man is a good leader or a good man. 

Before you chastise me for not trying to get a thrid option I voted for the Green party/Ralph Nader last time, I was one of the people that allowed them/him to get the presentage needed to get on the balet for this election.  Maybe if they could have worked toghter to work out the difrences they had insted of starting court cases over who would be on the balets in what states we would have a third party down the road but none of them seem to be able to hold it together. 

I don't know why I'm so pissed off about this right now but I am.

other than that my cat got out today and got up a tree... she's OK.  But she got chased around alot by some biger cats.

I know...1% of precincts left to go...
Bush is at 51%, Kerry at 49% and Nader at 1%...
Even if the final count of this 1% is in Kerry's favor, I don't think he'll get it.

America: Dammit Jim, I'm a doctor not a miracle worker...
Makes me sad.

not in the least. My cat is missing. She always meats me at the door and she wasn't there when I got home. Dad was in and out of the basment all day and he TOLD me last night that he colsed the window but it was OPIN when I got home. He drove my husband away and now he LOST my cat. If the cat dosen't turn up I am so fucking out of here even if I have to walk 11 miles to work each day and live on the street I can't take this shit from him any more! It's like living with a 2 year old
