Pizza shop owner bear hugs President Obama

Pizza shop owner bear hugs President Obama

Upon walking into the Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Ft. Pierce, Fla., Sunday afternoon, President Obama received an enthusiastic greeting by the shop’s owner who wrapped his arms around the president’s back for a bear hug and and lifted him him off the ground.

I was really bothered by this. Seriously, this is a President of the United States! Why would you think this is EVER okay? Dude is lucky the Secret Service didn’t absolutely massacre this guy.

Is it my right NOT to vote?


For the first time in my life, I am seriously considering staying home on election day.  I am opting-out of the political process.  I have come to believe “freedom” to choose who runs our country is an illusion and that American society has no real choice in who becomes President. These two candidates we have today were bought and paid for long ago.

The electoral college is bullshit. The current system of “winner takes all” in each state warps presidential elections. Through polling, candidates and media divide the country into red and blue states, and those categorized as “swing” acquire the attention. A Washington Post analysis shows the 2012 election will be decided by roughly 916,643 “undecided” voters in six swing states.

Consider me “decided.” I have decided to sit at home, pour some Grey Goose over ice, and exercise my right NOT to vote.  Am I wrong?

The older I get, the more I see how painfully true this is.
