Super Tuesday

Yesterday was super Tuesday. Of course I went to vote because I believe if you don't vote you can't complain about the government. I took Curly Q. with to explain the democratic process. I have to say that child "shows" so well. She honestly makes homeschooling look great. As they were checking is she explained why we were voting yes on the school referendum, but no on the park district referendum. She was more articulate than most adults I have heard discuss it.

Of course both the referendums failed AGAIN. Actually almost every referendum in our county failed. I feel really bad about the high school one because the school is terribly overcrowded. The reason it keeps failing is that people can't agree on the boundries for the new school. Everyone wants their kids to go to the NEW school. Of course the old school was completely rebuilt less than 10 years ago, and it is amazing. Still everyone wants to fight over the dividing lines. It drives me CRAZY. My kids may never even go to public high school, and I can see that it is needed.

As for the primary, I am happy to see that Obama is doing well. I have nothing against Hillary, but I don't think that a woman trying to negotiate in the middle east is in our country's best interest. The republicans all frighten me, but I am surprised to see how many people actually vote for Huckabee. Do they really know what he stands for?

I know this post have been a bit off topic, but I'll get back to business in my next post (and I'll make it soon.)
