    Cat places third in Virginia Senate race

    lol ... this gave me a good laugh this morning! In a perverse sort of way, I'm actually very proud of my fellow Virginians for keeping their humor & perspective amidst the madness and for treating the recent politics with the respect or lack there of which most of it deserves.

    Stay the course, Hank, stay the course

    I'm a big fan of Hank's, I follow his newsfeed on FB and own FOUR! of his campaign t-shirts.

    If I think about it I really do believe that the cat would be less detrimental to the welfare of this country than the people in DC are to it now. Those people need a wake up call.

    What's cool about the Hank campaign is that any funds received via T-shirt sales, donations, etc go to various organizations that help homeless animals. And Hank's "campaign manager" writes some interesting comments on Hank's FB wall. Here are a couple:

    With the hundreds of political commercials airing every day now, I want to discuss something many campaigns claim to be a champion of, and yet end up actually severely hurting: small businesses. During the ever-growing campaign season, politicians on both sides spend millions on television advertisements (along with radio, print, etc.). The companies who run these stations and charge for the ads
    are aware that the closer we get to the election, the more each party will be willing to pay for coveted airplay - and of course there’s only so much time in each day to run these ads, so the space is limited. Many small businesses who rely on relatively cheap commercials on TV (perhaps $200-500 regularly) find themselves being told that to play their same commercial now will cost $7000 or more - simply because the candidates are willing to pay that price to air their own commercial praising their small business support 20 times during a single day. You might think this is typical every election year, but it has increased at an alarming rate - in Richmond, Virginia, campaigns have already spent more than 10 times as much as they did in all of 2008 on advertising. Perhaps if these candidates would instead follow my suggestion to donate 50% of their campaign funds to charity, they could save the ad space for the used car lots and rug cleaners trying to survive in a tough economy, and instead be mentioned regularly on the news broadcasts for their selfless act of helping those in need.
    The latest Congress has adjourned until after the election now, passing just the bare minimum budget to make sure the government continues to “work” for another six months. What was left behind includes the fate of the United States Postal Service, Bush era tax cuts, over $100 billion in spending cuts, budget adjustments, farm subsidies, and many other decisions ignored simply because of the pote
    ntial effect it would have on the re-election campaigns of many politicians.

    On the same note, the current approval rating of this past Congress is a whopping 13% - the lowest ever in an election year. I have very few doubts that my current approval rating among my supporters will ever dip below 14%, so it seems like we have this election in the bag. Of course, this does not mean it’s time to rest on my fluffy, warm cat bed - more than ever, I am working diligently on the campaign during these final weeks. I am certain, though, that once elected, I can continue to rely on my standard 16 hours of sleep each day, and still be able to achieve much more than our current leaders do.
