Local Politics

Its been a while since I blogged and have forgotten how cathartic it is!
My latest gripe is the local politics.Our elections are coming up in July.
Two years ago,we had a bunch of crooks running the show.And yes,I literally mean that.The DA's husband was the county comissioner and their best friend was the sheriff.Together they ruined the county I live in.The DA had so many cases on backlog it was not even funny.The sherriff went around giving every single one of his friends a badge,fired all the white cops(they sued him for that),gang related crimes increased etc.They were all voted out of office,mostly in run offs and things had limped back to normalcy since then.Last heard the DA and her husband ran a law firm and the sherriff was sued for all the firings and lost.He declared bankruptcy and went to work as a car salesman.
Well,this time around they are all running for office.
Sad part is,if people dont go and vote these idiots will win

People have become so complacent about voting until it's too late. We are only in control if we vote. I say vote early, vote often!!

Ah, the importance of voting. I am with you! I get tickled at your profile. My husband is also from India (we are in FL, I am white) and he is a republican which is a rarity in his family/culture. I can relate. I have heard such political wranglings ....Blessings!!!
