S/V Hello World's Travel Log

holy crap

This is not a political blog. This is not about Christy's and my opinions on anything other than marine toilet maintenance (it sucks). It's about a Seattle couple that bought a boat and want to go places on it. Also - funny poop stories. But mostly the boat thing.

However, today is a watershed moment in American history and it's worth taking a step back to say "wow". We've elected a man to the highest office in the land who just so happens to be black. During this unending election cycle, the discourse was never really about the man's skin color. He was in more danger of losing this election due to his middle name than being a black man in America running for President. I don't care what your politics are - Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, whatever - this moment in time is big. We get to say goodbye to what will likely go down in the books as the worst presidential administration in the United States' modern history in virtually every quantifiable metric. But even more important is what lies ahead for our country.

To Bush and Dick (hehehe) I say "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out".

To the rest of you, I say this:


(updated - I got rid of the Bush/Cheney/Beavis/Butthead image and replaced it with the image above. As much as that image cracks me up, this is the time we need to spend shoveling dirt on their time in office, not remembering it.)
