Flag-SpokaneWhen Francis Scott Key wrote “The Star-Spangled Banner” almost 200 years ago, he called America “the land of the free and home of the brave.”

Those words are as true today as they were back then.  Throughout our Nation’s history, American soldiers (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Coastguard) have bravely answered the call to defend our freedom.

Join me today, Veterans Day,  to honor all the men and women who have served our country and preserved our many freedoms.

2010-0524-vote4me-chrisDon’t we already feel powerless enough!

That’s right, I may have the right to vote, but with all the local advert shenanigans and corporate influence it seems like a meaningless effort.

And how many times do you need to call me in a day?  I’m not exaggerating about all the phone calls.  These politicians and political action committees are relentless.  Nothing better than a recorded message from a recorded politician begging for my vote so he or she can play in a game that essentially excludes me.  And what kind of crazy world do we live in where these backward politicos, believe like all spammers, that it’s perfectly okay to annoy me and waste my time.

Then there’s all this advertising hogwash about freedom and making America a better place.  Give me a break!  The messages sound like a “robot” politician with pre-programmed vocal gravitas.  Hey here’s an idea.  Give me freedom from robocalls and let me opt out of them?!  Give me freedom from money in politics relentlessly extorting truths and spinning lies.

If I had my way I’d let the politico spammers choke on their own TV ads.

So who do I call?  No one.  That’s right there is no one to call when it comes to politico spammers.  The National Do Not Call Registry provides no air cover.

Don’t politicians get it?  People hate robocalls and yet the phones keep ringing.

I wish my vote truly counted.  Then I’d take the names of everybody robocalling me and vote against them.  These self-centered asses who give not a whit about my privacy.  Can I call them at home during dinner and tell them what I want them to run on?  After they’re elected can I knock on their front door during their day off and bend their ear about what’s important to me?  Right… that would be annoying and a real pain!

That’s correct, they want time off and then some.  You get harassed on the internet and now we’re “bullied” by politico hacks who don’t take our privacy serious.

That’s how far we’ve come…
