Because life is transitory and unfortunately this is not heaven.

Although you can make your life your own private idaho!

Like the bestselling book says, don't sweat the small stuff.

Trust me, I understand political burnout. I'm the one who's been yacking about this stupid eight-month campaign season. This is absolutely ludicrous. I can't do anything about it but I'm thinking of starting a group that doesn't like this at all because, well, I have the right to complain about this! I don't think it's good for the country because it's too easy for voters to get tired of this. Unfortunately the stupid media has way too much of a vested interest in these infernally long campaigns to care to do anything about it. They're laughing all the way to the bank. Damn.

You know, politicians only do the perpetual campaign because it works. Sad, irritating, but true.

My advice for burnout is to flip off the TV, stop reading the newspaper, news magazines, political websites (and political threads in other sites), pick up a good book (non political!), pop a favorite cd in, light up a joint (if you are so inclined), and enjoy life a bit. Repeat for the next two and a half months. About a week before the election, check up on what's been going on (trust me, you won't have missed much of substance) and then go vote. There you go.

I'd really rather you didn't go, Dread. Maybe just a break?

Hehe, when I leave, no one notices, perhaps I should've participated more.

I haven't posted here in weeks.

Goodbye dread, didn't know you that much, but it was nice to see some balance in politically themed forums.

You're right. The politicians have a vested interest in these damn campaignathons. And this year they turned up the volume damn early. There have been articles in the press saying you'd think it was October the way the campaigns are going. It's going to be a fight. One problem I have is that I am naturally not fond of discord. It annoys me. So I'm going to be taking several vacations from the campaign. I'm going to attend medieval faire events, where we do not ever discuss modern topics. Incidentally nearly all of my fellow re-enactors are Republican. I couldn't care less. We tend to all want to get away from politics as well as other hassles when we do our events. Sometimes politics doesn't matter. Also, I'm working on a painting that's a protest against incivility in politics. There is certainly nothing new about incivility in politics, but I don't have to like it. And I agree, you don't miss anything of substance when you don't pay attention to this . You miss alot of silliness, pettiness and stupidity. I hate to sound cynical but I believe that.
