Two "political"-type things ... and one that's just full of win.

First, from Neatorama: "If you don't vote, you're a moron."



Which goes with my firmly-held belief that if you don't vote, you've surrendered your right to complain about our government. 
Vote responsibly, please. I don't care how you vote ... as long as you're not doing it randomly. Your vote counts (I don't want you possibly cancelling out my vote unless you MEAN it. ^_^)

(Also, I heart Craig Ferguson's accent. And he's very funny.)

And, if you don't subscribe to Eric D. Snider's weekly "Snide Remarks," you're missing out.
And here's the link to this week's. ^_^ It's all about double-talk and spinning. And it's hilarious. As his stuff always is. (If you're needing a good laugh, go to film.com and read his Bad Movie Reviews. Excellent.

And this is just full of win - 78-Year-Old Man is getting his Bar Mitzvah (from Neatorama).
If you're too busy to click over, Bernie Marks was in a ghetto in Nazi-ruled Poland, then in Auschwitz ... so he never had his Bar Mitzvah (to mark a boy's passage into manhood ... girls can have a Bas Mitzvah, but they don't seem to be as common). After he was liberated (with what remained of his family) in 1945, he was deemed too old for a Bar Mitzvah by the rabbis he talked to. 
Now, rabbis are much more merciful in when a Bar Matzvah can be done (instead of just around the age of 13). Better late than never. I'm excited for Bernie. He's been through so much. He deserves every happiness. And he looks SO excited. Good for him.

It just makes me happy when people love their religions. It's a good thing.
