OK, time to slip into Cranky Old Guy Mode, but someone needs to say this:
It is bad enough that my mailbox fills up with expensively printed glossy pieces of political propaganda, bad enough that radio and television airwaves are unsafe during this time of year if you want to avoid exposure to political posturing and attacking, bad enough that unwanted visitors knock on my door to spread the word of their candidate or cause, and I really hate the phone calls. Even my email isn't safe.
This isn't educational. It isn't informative. It's advertising a product, and after awhile it becomes nagging and/or harassment.
But what I really can't stand are the volunteers who stand on busy street corners, holding signs and waving and smiling. It's wrong I tell you, wrong! Couldn't this activity be considered a threat to public safety? It is hard enough paying attention to driving hazards without this distraction.
Something is wrong with the way we select our elected public servants. It's degrading for both candidates and voters.
OK, I know JT will say, "stevenl is always in Cranky Old Guy Mode," what's the difference?
