2016 World Series Champions

Wow, game 7 of the World Series last night was amazing.  It had everything you could ask for in a baseball game, and never let up.  It was a perfect ending to the series, and it’ll go down in history as something special.  It’s rare these days for such a GOOD thing to be in the news.  Sad to say, but it’s true.  It’s great to see everyone celebrating and enjoying the big win (except Cleveland and the Indians).  Just look at anything on the internet and you can’t miss it popping up somewhere.

Everyone’s tired today at work, but we have a good excuse.  Unfortunately we have to come back to reality all too soon and move on.  We have to get back to finishing off an insane election that I don’t think will make any happy, no matter which way it turns out, because, unfortunately, I only think it can come out one of two ways, and I don’t think either of them are the RIGHT way.  But it’s coming to a close early next week, so hold onto your hats, it’s going to get messy!

I’m going back to reading my Stephen King books.  Unfortunately, none of his stories are as scary as what’s about to happen to the country next week though!

Election 2016

Everyone asks where I stand on the presidential election.  My answer is “as far away as possible.”  This year’s election is, by far, the worst I’ve seen.  It’s always been a mess, from what I’ve seen, and there’s always been mudslinging in both directions, but I don’t think it’s ever been this bad or this nasty.  And I believe that’s because Donald Trump never imagined he’d be in this position.  He’s clearly not cut out to be a politician.  At all.  So there’s all this ugly past history of his that keeps popping up, and in turn his campaign keeps digging for something worse on Hillary Clinton, resulting in the fiasco we have now.

Who am I voting for?  I’m not saying.  I feel this is a private decision everyone should make on their own.  Publicly announcing your “side” only alienates you from certain groups of people, and these days it can bring out the worst in some people.  I’ll vote, that’s for sure.  Everyone should.  And early–the polls on election day this year will most likely be pretty busy, and we just might have a record turnout, so I’m going to vote early to avoid as much of it as possible.

Either way, we all know one of the two major candidates will win no matter what happens, and that’s sad.  The options this time around are just too small, in my opinion.
