Not Dead Yet

If you haven't seen it yet, http://www.tumblerockfarm.com is live and in desperate need of one of us having some time to actually do some site design work. Nis four weeks old today, and doing great.

Q is doing well in school. His friend, E, is coming over to spend the day with us on Saturday.

Because of my long commute and unpredictable overtime, I cast an absentee ballot today. I did not vote for John McCain. I desperately wanted on some level to be able to vote for Obama, but in the end, I just couldn't. The socialist agenda of the democrats frighten me, and no matter how independent Obama claims to be, I can't help but think that he would have a hard time vetoing the bills that will come out of a filibuster-proof democratic congress. I voted for Baldwin, nationally of the Constitutional Party, but in Virginia on the Independent Green ticket. For those well-versed in their [info]happypete lore, they are nodding in recognition that the Independent Green Party-then known as the "Fairfax Greens" co-endorsed my run as a Libertarian candidate for House of Delegates in 1999. Needless to say the "Independent Greens" are not part of the national or state "Green Party." Most Green Party members wouldn't be caught dead endorsing me, nor any candidate [such as Baldwin] endorsed by Ron Paul. I did do my bit to fire Frank Wolf for his part in further bankrupting the United States in the guise of a "bailout." I hope Judy Feder wins--she did creditably in her last run, and Wolf is substantially weaker now than two years ago. I voted for my friend William Redpath, the Libertarian. I wish I had volunteered time and money for his campaign this year, but there was just no way I could help in any meaningful way.
