get up stand up

Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.

George Jean Nathan (1882-1958) critic, essayist and editor

tut-tut inspired me to try to post every day this month; really I shouldn't let my momentum from october wane (woo-hoo 26 posts - a record high for 2010). november is the only month this year when I'm not scheduled for a wander! the other day I was wondering why I've felt so behind, then I looked at my calendar and realized I've been a way for a chuck of every month - a minimum of five days away and some months, many many more days than five. hmmmm....

I like the 'disclaimer' that tut-tut used when she committed to NaBloPoMo, please tut be complimented when I repeat your words to say: I'm posting every day in November, the mundane, the boring, the tragic; I'm letting it all go. Maybe I'll even have an insight or two. Who knows?

the mouse's thought for today: tomorrow's election day in the united states; if you are registered don't be an ass and vote! if you're not registered and you are qualified, well, we really don't need call you any names - but, get off your ass and get registered! then you will be all set for the next time an election comes around- and remember, elections are not confined to november. don't put it off, add 'register to vote' on your 'to do' list!

perhaps bob put it best get up stand up!!

the vid of marley singing get up stand up I wanted to use is 'disabled' (am sur bob wouldn't approve of that!) - however, this version is fun it mixes marley singing the song with a little bit of interviews and kids dancing and kids lip syncing the tune.

I wish I could say I felt good about any one of the candidates this year...but I don't. I think it was all the negative ad campaigning that's turned me off.
