"Every vote counts!"

I live in a small town. And the town votes on things town related.

Recently the town had a vote on building a new 'senior center'...a center for people that are on the verge of dying.

Money not so well spent.

But anyhow...

So they had a vote about using tax dollars to build such a thing and I wasn't even aware of said vote until after the voting had passed.

I read about it after the fact. And the 'senior center' thingy passed by four (4) votes and the newspaper proclaimed:

"EVERY VOTE COUNTS! Don't ever let it be said that your ONE single vote doesn't matter because this vote PROVED that ONE vote does count."


You see....if I had voted the thing still would have passed by THREE (3) votes.

I'm glad I didn't waste my time voting...and hopefully after all the 'seniors' die they make that 'senior center' into maybe a cool pool room or cigar bar or gas station.

Or something.


One vote never counts. They should make each vote worth ten votes and then maybe more folks would vote. And I should be in charge.

Senior Ctrs are hugely important. It's where the REAL Cougars can be found.

My feet are cold. When you're in charge, will we all get new socks?

::makes a mental note to make sure IANO ends up in this particular 'Seniors Centre' when he's an ole fella::

Things that will happen if NoOpie is ever in charge:

* a ban on capri pants
* a ban on Croc shoes
* a ban on
* a ban on Hillary Clinton
* a ban on peas
* no votes on anything
* snazzy uniforms for all

Hmm, I'm sensing a little bit of a dictatorship here.

Hoagy isn't planning to go over there and boot the old people's card houses, is he? 'cause some of them seniors got mad ninja cane skills in hand to hand combat.

I heard Hoagy put on a poofy grey/gray wig, grabbed some fancy slippers, and moved in...and now he's scamming the poor ole folks at card games and makin' a killing.

Whatta troublemaker.

Senior citizens are like members of Hydra. For every one you kill, two more take their place.

The only way to keep from getting more is to kill everybody before they get old. Like in "Logan's Run."
