I just filled out my ballot. I’m an absentee voter. It helps, because I don’t have to face long lines and crowded rooms (neither of which agree with me unless it’s at Disneyland).

It will go in the mail tomorrow, to be delivered in a timely manner to the Registrar of Voters.

You’ve heard me say it a lot. In fact, if you’re around any of my family lately, you’ve heard us all say it. A lot.


America is at a crossroads right now. It’s not just differing opinions. Politics are getting uglier and more conniving. I’m not talking about just the ads. I’m talking about how the elected are taking care of themselves when they should be taking care of business.

It’s so important that you choose the best candidate to keep America strong, and to rebuild what’s been weakened.

I’m not here to tell you the simple answer. Because there isn’t one. The solution to my struggles is the same for you, because your struggles are different. My views on life may not be the same as yours.

The important thing is that you find your voice. Take a stand.


For the last few Presidential elections, there’s been a sense of apathy that we can no longer afford. Too many people are taking the easy way out, shrugging their shoulders and then complaining when things don’t get better.

I urge you, I plead with you, please:


There is nothing more important we can do for our country, our states, our governments, our economy, and our future.

Don’t just choose the pretty names or the candidates with the most signs. Learn what they stand for. Make sure you choose the one that will best represent your interests for long-term success.

Read. Research. And cast it.


No. Matter. What.

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
