    The Election



    “Honey why don’t you turn that thing off?”

    “I want to see who won the School Board. Are the kids home yet?”

    “You know the TV can’t hear you! I’ll check on the kids now. You have the iPad?”

    “Yea. I was checking on the Internet…something about our State Senator election doesn’t seem right…you want it?”

    “Since you have it you can check on the kids.”

    “How do you…”

    “The amber color App with two people holding hands. Find Friends.”


    “You mean the yellow orange color? Found it.”

    “Scroll down to Alex…”

    “…I know how to do it.”

    “Hmmm. Have you ever seen it do this before?” Gus holds the iPad up for Inez to see not thinking that Inez was in the kitchen and Gus was in the living room.

    Inez carries a plate of Snickerdoodles straight from the oven and a glass of milk into the Living room for Gus. “Have I’ve seen what?”

    “Look!” Gus waves the iPad in front of Inez’s face. “Their location keeps jumping around. First they were in Tennessee almost to the Georgia border a few hours from their home. Now it has them in western Kentucky! That’s way out of their way. Why would they go that way home?”


    “Let me look…”

    “Now they are in Charlotte. That can’t be right”

    From frustration of trying to see the iPad that Gus insisted on waving, Inez holds a cookie out to Gus. Gus takes the offered bait and relinquishes the iPad to Inez. “It’s never done that before. Could it be something with the Internet?”

    “More cookies?”

    “You know what the Doctor said about losing some weight. You want the Pad back?”

    “Yea. I was looking for the population of our county. School Board election results seem to be off. Yea just I thought. There have been more votes then what the population of the county is. That can’t be right.” While Gus was waiting for the TV news banner scrolling across the bottom of the TV screen to get to the School Board election again he quietly walks out to the kitchen and managed to snagged three more cookies before getting whacked across his knuckles. “Did you hear that? That can’t be right either. The scum bag couldn’t have got that many votes, that is more then what the State population…”

    “Honey why don’t you turn that TV off and check on the kids again?”

    “Now the App doesn’t show them anywhere and the election results aren’t right either! Something is really screwed up somewhere!”


    “They have really messed this up big this time, Sir. It’s so obvious that a blind man can see it. Commence operation Reset as ordered, Sir?”

    “Confirmed and verified. Terminate all commercial and civilian availability of the Global Positioning System. Start interference at Level One on all national broadcasting frequencies. Release the prewritten notice to News media about unusual sunspot activity. Wait the prescribed one hour before gradually increasing broadcasting interference to level Five. Then terminate the Internet at the global level. At my mark start the twenty-four hour countdown to complete reset….MARK…”

    It is an amber alert, as in amber beer. Keeps the head from burning.
    Even thinking about having a couple helps. I keep thinking about one then decide to wait till later, and that works too.

    How is it that Fox news is predicting Dems take the house by a 95% probability when the repubs have held the lead for the last hour by 10 to 15 seats. I dislike Fox news more and more each day.

    Colorado just elected a Democratic, gay governor. I knew he was going to win months ago because of all of the campaigning he did.

    They are as comped as the rest except they are more sinister... more of a polish job, they "seem" to be right wing... It's just fodder for the real lefties...

    I am so glad not to have to listen to the political ads anymore! I cannot even watch YouTube videos without seeing them!
