Day Seven: Hacking and Harumph

No, we're not coughing...I'm just sitting at Joe's computer (as mine is not doing so well, and sitting in the trunk of my car. Why won't it get to Nerds on Call by itself?), and I started to troll through his Facebook page, forgetting that it was his, not mine, and came across a clip from Mel Brooks' movie, Blazing Saddles.

Which is neither PC nor serious, but funny if you're not taking life too seriously.

While this is generally not a political blog, as I'm not a super political person, I tend to believe that folks get too worked up about the election, and then gloat in the end, either outcome, either partyline, etc. Which in my humble opinion is annoying.

We're trying to fix that, at our house, as we explain it to our kids. We told Anna, our seven year old, this morning that President Obama was still the President, and when she started to protest, as she did not vote for Obama in the school's election (citing that she had to defend her choice on the playground against kids who said Romney was going to take away Cartoon Network...or PBS...either way, it's just spin and misinterpretation, right?), we explained to her that while she may have disagreed with the outcome of the election, he is our leader, and we have to be respectful of that.



Anyway, while we conservative Midwesterners are a little nervous at the outcome (did you see all the red in the middle, and then a blue win? Tell me when politics or anyone worries about the Midwest, and then I'll get more political), as more government sometimes equals more difficulties as far as agriculture goes, we're ready to move on, and I guess, gulp, move forward.

So enjoy this silly video, and while it's a little crude and crass, there is some truth to protecting phoney baloney jobs, which is funny and sad at the same time.
