The government is still shut down. An article in Time
said that most Republicans are not concerned about their re-election, because gerrymandering and voter restrictions have assured them of re-election. It case you are not
familiar with the term, according to Wikipedia, gerrymandering is “:a practice that attempts to establish a political advantage for a particular party or group by manipulating district boundaries to create partisan
advantaged districts.” Of course, demographics can change. Neighborhoods that once were white-senior citizens-protestants can change quickly into ethnic-middle class-Catholics faster than the time it takes for gerrymandering. The courts can change voter restrictions. Is there any good reason to re-elect the current politicians?
There have been many spoofs of Miley Cyrus’s "Wrecking
Ball" music video in which she is nude while riding a wrecking ball. I hope they stop soon. Now Hulk Hogan, the ex-pro wrestler, has donned a thong in a new ad for web hosting service Hostamania. Hogan stripped down to a thong and rode on a swinging wrecking ball. He did wear his trademark yellow boots, sunglasses, wristbands, and bandanna, along with a yellow feather boa. Now that you have that picture in your mind, picture a 400-pound man wearing a thong, if you can even see the thong. Try to get that image out of your mind for the rest of the day. It is enough to make the voices in your head go crazy. Please make them stop.
