Who do I box today.
For all my extolling of the virtues of the vote, I want to puke!
As a friend reminded me yesterday, Emma Goldman once said, “If voting changed anything they’d make it illegal.” In a new variant on that, voting seems to have assured yet another period of acrimony and division in the service of big business and bigotry.
So who do I box today?
The public has “spoken.”
I’m just glad I don’t live in Arizona where the public voted to ban affirmative action. Or Wisconsin for that matter where Senator Russ Feingold was voted out of office, the only Senator with the temerity to vote “no” on the Patriot Act of 2001 and one of ten who voted against the renewal of 2006. Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t like the idea of people reading my mail without the consent of an open court.
Oy! I’m so depressed!
I guess it’s time to hit the bag.
