A very good friend came to visit us and I took some time off from blogging. I just didn’t want to waste my time in front of the computer, when we had a full schedule and such a great time. Blogging has become a part in my life, but I don’t want it to dictate my life, because that would take the fun out of it.
Blogging is really fun for me and I want to continue to spread the joy, but a little bit different than before.
As much as I tried to be non-political on my blog, it’s just not happening. It’s like Ron White once said: “I have the right to remain silent… but I don’t have the ability.” Left and right there are donkeys and elephants campaigning and for the first time ever, since I am allowed to vote, I don’t know where I belong. I mean I know where my principles and believes are, but I just don’t see anyone on the horizon who can get me excited, or who would deserve my vote.
I don’t believe anymore, I guess that’s what it all comes down to and I know, I am not the only one. I feel that a big majority in this country is disappointed in both parties. “Sick and tired” of the same old, that’s at least how I feel.
Many of us call it the clown mobile when we talk about some of the candidates and I wish I could laugh about it. Many things they say or stand for make me pretend to throw up in my imaginary bucket, that’s hidden under my desk.
So, we have a little bit more than one year of campaign torture to endure, until they Presidential election and there is no way I can hold back my opinion for that long…so screw it, now I am getting involved and will have some fun by doing so.
I have been a good ole Ladybug for over a year, now it’s time to spread my wings and make some turbulence :-).
I love political cartoons and caricature and I found a few good ones that I would like to share. Today I would like to start with my friends the elephants, just because they are just an easy target to begin with; here are some of this year’s best cartoons so far:
