(Nearly) Wordless Thursday (instead of Wednesday)

I intended to get this up on Wednesday, but have been waiting for a little more certainty in the last couple states (I'm looking at you Missouri and North Carolina):
(I had pink and blue highlighters at my desk and am a big proponent of using what's available.)

And how could I not include a scan of this page from a packet on voting from my son's class:

Your son's answer on that worksheet cracks me up!

We all must try to fight Proposition 8 which takes away rights already granted.
Please consider a boycott of Sundance, Utah and Mormons

or donating money to the Northern California ACLU
http://www.aclunc.org/ .
I am not affiliated with either. I am just trying to make a difference. Thanks.

In response to the second commenter, we never go to Sundance (or know anyone who does) and we're atheists so we have permanently boycotted all religions in a way. ;-)
I suppose we could donate to the ACLU, but the thing everyone seems to be forgetting is that all of these amendments will be struck down once someone gets married in MA and takes that marriage to one of these states. The Amendments violate the Full Faith and Credit clause ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_faith_and_credit_clause ) of the US Constitution (the reason the right wanted a federal amendment) and the right just handed us a state that will push this case through in record time to have it tested with the highest court. They may actually have saved us time. Chins up.

I love his answer! L.'s school had some ridiculous vote for striped shirts or solid shirts and it was tied--ha!

I'm sure they were trying to pick something non-controversial (like the Turtle vs. Fish on Scooter's worksheet), but that sort of misses the point and an opportunity to get them excited about elections. Even if they didn't want to go with the actual election, they could have done something like "pizza party vs ice cream party." I do love that it was a tie!
