Politics over a $12 Sandwich


See full size image

Yesterday a friend and I went to Northstar Cafe on High Street for lunch. He was buying so I ordered the chicken and avacado sandwich with sweet potato fries. The food and company were both good and as is typically the case our discussion turned to politics.

His frustration with what’s going on in Washington was pretty apparent and I think reflects the views of alot of Americans these days because we don’t know what to do to get politicians on both sides of the aisle to work together.

When I asked him how he was planning on voting he told me he was thinking of voting against every incumbent on the ballot every November. Since the Democrats are in the majority right now this type of voting approach does not bode well for them.

Earlier today when I saw this clip on YouTube it made me wonder if voting the Republicans in to power will make things any better. I mean come on with all of the problems our country has right now our politicians are talking about skin color and golf. Argggggh, this is so frustrating.

As our Grandmother used to say, be careful what you wish for …..

  1. The key was to get the incumbents out in the primaries… bad democraps and republicans alike. At this point… I guess it’s vote for the lesser of two evils. I for one will be voting for the person who wants a smaller, less intrusive government! Glad to have come across your blog thanks to you being freshly pressed!
