Advice for Voters
Yes, I'm going there!
I thought this was very good advice:
My friend Laura says that chromosome counting is not adequate criteria for vote casting. She says that she will not be deciding who to vote for based on the fact that Trig Palin has an extra chromosome (like her son.) Or on the fact that Sarah Palin has two X chromosomes (like her.) Or on the fact that the two presidential candidates have both X and Y chromosomes like many people she knows.
She will be looking at other criteria to make her decision.
Are you not proud of her? Do you not think she is hilarious? Shouldn't she have a blog of her own? (She should, she is an excellent writer!)
She felt that after a few things she'd read this position needed clarifying!
I am the mother of three, wife of one. I am a Partners in Policymaking graduate and a committed disability advocate. I want to catch up on my scrapbooking, learn more about art-journaling, get my house in order, read all the books I have set aside to read and change the world--not necessarily in that order. The opinions in this blog are my own and not those of any of employers.
