This blog is about Lewy Body Dementia from the perspective of two fellows that have it. Think: Beavis and Butthead on dementia.
We stand with Ukraine and I personally stand with the efforts of Anonymous. If things were different I would be out there too.
Serving up the snarky side of dementia since 2018
Demented Citizens for a Saner America
Citizens for a Saner America seeks to encourage the public in general
and those who have differing diagnoses of dementia in particular to
register to vote and then do so. We are affiliated with no political
party nor will we be supporting any particular candidates. Our
primary goal is to awaken an untapped voting block that is
continually overlooked, those with dementia. There are ~25 million of
us in the US. Many are still of sound enough mind to cast a reasoned
vote. We encourage you to make you voices heard by doing so.
In support of our
encouragement of the demented vote we offer the following:
1. There’s no
denying the highly partisan and divisive nature of today’s
political environment. Much of that can be blamed on voter apathy. We
can still do our part to change that.
2. Through increased
voter turnout we could conceivably return to a more civil time, both
politically and societally.
3. As evidenced by
recent events, those in power today have little to no compunction
with cheating, lying and generally short-circuiting the democratic
process to achieve their own ends. However, rather than trying to
out-cheat the card sharks, it is better to simply deny them the
battlefield. Voting them out of power is just about the only tangible
means a civilian has of effecting this.
4. Since the party
in power right now has no interest in governing, let alone doing so
fairly, we need to put someone else in charge that does have our best
interests at-heart. Who is that person/candidate? At this point,
literally any other group can and will do better than those currently
5. Witnesses to the
chicanery of the current administration assume that karma will come
for them eventually; voting now makes you part of that karma.
6. Another important
reason to vote those in power out of office is that they are
currently running around displaying what many consider un-American
behavior and values and doing so in our (collective) name.
Personally, I don’t want these people being how the rest of the
world judges all Americans. These people embarrass us greatly and
will continue to do so until stopped.
In summary: if you
have a problem with attacking our friends and embracing our stated
enemies on the world stage, if you have a problem with the “good
old boys network” running things, if you don’t like the state the
country is in, if you feel that the very things that made this
country great are being legislated out of existence, if you have a
problem with the national debt sky-rocketing with no end in sight, if
you just plain hate seeing neighbor turned against neighbor, get out
and vote on November 6th.
Make your demented voice known,
because even to the demented, the current state of this land
certainly qualifies as “crazy”. End the insanity in government,
even if you cannot do so for yourself. Think of it this way: you are in all likelihood voting out someone crazier than yourself, and that can only be a good thing.
Update 23 October 2018: I voted. May the deity help the other guys...
