Another Piece of My Heart, Baby

The United States Postal Service came up with a winner recently with a Janis Joplin forever stamp available in panes of 16.  It's done with 1960's psychedelic-style ornate letter like might have appeared on a poster.  At last, there's a positive recognition of the counterculture of the 1960's.  Get a few panes and use them for personal mail.

Here's Janis Joplin (1943-1970) performing "Piece of My Heart":

Knaves, Fools, Douchebags, and Dingbats

Well, it's close to another election again; and I have the same sterile choices that the two major parties offer.  It's a dismal choice between the Democrat knaves, fools, and douchebags and the Republican knaves, fools, and douchebags.  I'd rather vote for my dog. 

Bad words.

That's why I'm voting for third party candidates, if any are there.  And I know, dammit, that they're not likely to win.  But don't give me that bull hockey about throwing my vote away.  I'm voting third party because it's the only way I have of flipping both the Republicans and Democrats the bird!  They both can perform coprophagic behavior, for all I care!

I'm afraid that part of our national problem is our being wedded to a two party system.  While there's a dime's worth of difference between the two, unlike the late, unlamented George Wallace claimed, neither alternative is attractive.

AS a matter of fact, I'd rather vote for a loony than a Democrat or a Republican.  Honest craziness does have its appeal.

And I'm voting against all of those damned amendments!
