Top 5 Excuses I’m Tired of Hearing for Why People Won’t Vote

  1. I Don’t Have Time to Stand in Line

This excuse may be a valid one, if so many people weren’t willing to stand in line and wait for other things.  We all know a friend or family member that has woken up at the crack of dawn to stand in line at Best Buy or Walmart on Black Friday.  Heck, you yourself may have rolled out of bed to stand in line for two hours to wait to get a TV or two.  Or maybe you’ve been one of those people to wait in line to get the latest iPhone or pair of Jordans.

The point here is this.  People are eager to wait in line for small picture material items, but are reluctant to wait in line to vote.  That sounds crazy.  Taxes are always on the ballot.  If you want more money to spend on phones and shoes, try voting. In fact, if it will get you to the poll faster, think of voting as an opportunity to possibly earn you some extra spending money.   Everyone could use some extra coin.  And if you still can’t wrap your mind around waiting in line to vote, then GO vote early if your state allows it.

5 Things to Know Before You Jump into Cuffing Season

I know there are more important things on the horizon like the upcoming presidential election in a few weeks, but I’d like to point out that cuffing season is also quickly approaching. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, allow me to explain.  For all intent and purposes, the infamous cuffing season is like hibernation season for bears (real ones LOL).  When the cold weather hits, bears like to find them a cozy and intimate place, away from other aspects of nature.  Similarly during cuffing season, humans don’t like going to clubs and bars like they used to in the spring and summer, because of the winter air and its elements.  While humans like to be in a cozy and intimate place, they tend to want to be there with a warm body next to them, as in a boo.  A bae. A honey.  A boyfriend.  And I’m all here for people participating in cuffing season, but I just think there are rules to this.

Stopping Donald Trump

So in the past week, I’ve been reminded of a major reason why Trump is seemingly so popular.  The ignorance that he spews from his platform, preys on the very fears and ignorance many in America have.  His “othering” of Muslims, condemnation of Mexicans and Mexican Americans, and belittlement of women, strikes a chord with the apparent millions of people that treat minorities as a scapegoat for all the turmoil in this country.
