    OK. I am going to admit...my understanding of "sweep picking" is a bit more refined now. Live and learn. 120355904_2975706339201102_6090773067046385949_o.jpg

    There’s nothing wrong with saying that you registered to vote. If it gets into a discussion of candidates, parties, etc. then it’s a problem.

    Exercise your franchise.
    It's not just a privilege, it's a responsibility.

    I'm so reliant on my volume pedal that this made me shudder. Yikes! Hope you heal up soon and thank you for your civic duty!!!!

    No big dramas. Had a collapsing arch since I was 5. Several decades later, it's time to rearrange the indoor furniture of my foot, so to speak. So far so good. Things are progressing on schedule, mild to moderate pain at worst. 8 weeks in a cast, and a year of rehab. I look forward to being able to fully utilize my foot pedals. The registered to vote part is political to the extent that, if it applies, if you value democracy, my cast is no better excuse than most whatever you might come up with to avoid or delay registering. End of sanctimonious lecture. Thanks for attending.

    So far, no itching, but it's 102 here so that may still be an option. The whiteout is a good taste choice as I prefer not to terrorize everyone with my toes going full monty.

    Good for you. As I ranted on another thread, any idiot can make any issue that really isn't political into a political issue with stupidity and lies. And unfortunately, yes, it is happening with voting itself.

    Poltics is not really about policy, it is about the allocation of power. Anything can become political when power is at stake.
