    Of All Things Divine, smileycreek and our new Connections Ambassador of Awesomeness, sidepocket!!

    Excellent choices, both.

    You can't hear the rowdy cheering and applause, but it's makin' a hulluva racket out here.


    Having been accused of being a motor mouth, I try to put that to good best strategy is "Each one, reach one".  I am  utterly shameless and will engage anyone, anywhere into talking politics.

    I coax them into telling me what they think...then make them question why they think it.  People like to be asked what they think.  And as long as I keep my temper in check at some of the crazyassshitepeoplebelieve, I can reach most of them.

    Except.......MrRightWingIKnowItAll at the Jiffy Lube.  But..the upside was that after he left (in one piece, dammit) the young man who heard him ranting and me calmly replying started asking me questions.  Thankfully he didn't ask me anything I couldn't answer (that day) and I could send him to some other resources as well.

    And he thanked me!!  Cool beans! :-)

    As we get closer to the elections, I might have to really crank it up.  Then we get into getting people to the polls.  We keep saying it, "When we vote, we win."
