A Little Political Humor...!
I figured that there must be something besides the politicians to laugh at during this election time! There is and I found a bit of it!
Let's face it! We need all the grins we can get before the elections...because we all know that the real laughs will come after the elections, when we see just what and who managed to get put into office!
Are you ready? Then here we go...!

It's a shame that the upcoming elections don't hold a promise of better leaders and a better future...but take my word for it, boys and girls, any light to speak of in our future will be furnished by us!
Don't look to any government agency, elected officials, or any one person that has the stench of politics hanging over them like a dark, foreboding cloud! Regardless of whatever promises, bribes, or rewards they may offer...all you need to do is to look back at past performance, and learn the lessons that history provides!
Those that don't learn from history, are doomed to repeat it!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit! There's a bit of history that bears repeating, for sure!
