Now that the election hubbub is finally over we can all go back to what’s truly important in our day-to-day lives. And we can finally watch TV free of political ads and full of ads on feminine hygiene products. Hooray tampons! Yay wings! Hallelujah FDS!
Sorry about that. Where was I?*
Oh yes. Getting back to the important day-to-day goings on in our lives and being thankful for them. I know that some of you are very upset about the election and some of you are extremely happy about the election. To all of you I say let’s work together and focus on the positive. We live in a country where we can voice our opinions and watch television commercials on everything from bad breath in dogs to an insurance lady who wears super bright red lipstick and is equal parts cute and obnoxious. Seriously, what is her strange appeal?
I’m clearly not very political and I really don’t appreciate the flat out rudeness that comes with the election every four years but I am thankful for free speech and the right as Americans (that’s pronounced ‘Mericans!) to write blogs about all sorts of nonsense while not being afraid of persecution. It’s your right to be a jerk face if you want. You can host a blog called “America Sucks and so does Lance Armstrong” if you choose to do so. It may end up resulting in a black eye (violence is not a right), it’s certainly better than being in a nation that locks you in a hole for eleventy thousand years for saying something that isn’t inline with your government.
So if you woke up yesterday really depressed about the future of ‘Merica just remember you can freely bitch about for four more years! And on the other hand, if you were super duper happy yesterday, you can say you picked the winner for four more years!**
Today, I’m thankful for free speech. And wings! What are you thankful for?
*Sorry there is not a single mention of running in this post.
**Please oh plesae don’t start a political dialogue in the comments. I can take no more.
Wings with adhesive, ah 😉
I watch TV while I'm on the treadmill on Monday and Wednesday nights, and I am SO thankful those freakin' ads are gone. Back to ads for laxatives, IHOP and life insurance during WoF and Jeopardy. And it sure seems like everyone on FB is ready to kill each other over the outcome of the election!
I am thankful that it is over for another three years, for early morning sunrise runs, and the ability to make Paleo Pancakes. I am also thankful for my coach and friend's, healthy baby boy she had on Tuesday morning in her home and that she is recovering nicely. I second B.O.B's Free speech thankfulness.
I'm thankful for my DVR and with it the ability to still see all those "great" political commercials that I missed the first time around!
Me gusta this post mucho! Amen for free speech sista!
I am certainly glad the election is over! But, I am also thankful for free speech and being able to vote….even if my Libetarian candidate didn't win. No surprise there, lol!
I am thankful for wings on Bald Eagles, feminine products and ones deep fried in Buffalo sauce. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Here in the MITTen state, we're thankful for the right to have bear arms and enjoy the rights bestowed on us by our four fathers!
Reason #78463 why I love you: You actually found and posted a pad commercial still on your blog.
The important thing people need to remember is that no matter how much it may look like we're going backwards at any given sliver of time, you can easily look back over the years and know we've made a lot of progress.
The biggest thing that creeps me out about the girl from the insurance commercials is that the characters name is "Flo". I'm sure it's a nod to Alice's Diner or something classic, but it still creeps me out a bit.
And the fact that you throw Flo into the next paragraph after talking about feminine hygiene products is why. Free Speech!
I will decline comment on polotics and wings…
but… what a country we live in!
we are free.
now let's all go for a run
I am thankful for TV, since it has enlightened much more than I ever wanted to be about feminine products.
i don't have the brain power to start any sort of educated discussion. yay maxi pads and erectile dysfunction!
