Costco has had their Christmas stuff out for a couple weeks now. Target was putting theirs out last week right before Halloween. Most houses around here still have their Halloween decorations out.

Pretty soon people will be bringing out their giant Christmas inflatables, complete with noisy fans.
(suburbs FTW)

I wonder if anywhere else in the world can rival the decorations that US people put up for X-Mas? Probably not.

Heh, I was about to say at least you didn't go with Costco because their Christmas shit has been up for a while now.

Respect Thanksgiving, put that Christmas stuff away 83.

Mailed my ballot in a week ago.

R-74! So senior citizens can live in sin and the gays can get married.

(Seriously, the mailings you get on this tout that it allows seniors to have domestic partnerships so they don't lose benefits if they re-marry)

R-74 and I-502 are pretty interesting this year. I have seen next to no opposition to I-502, which surprises me, and a disgusting amount of negative press for R-74. While driving around on Saturday I saw a bunch of protesters bannering the highway against R-74. Fuck ups.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

I've seen almost no negative press for R-74. Have gotten about 3 pro fliers in my mailbox for it, and have probably seen that commercial featuring the old republican lady about 20 times. (It's a pro commercial)

Have seen nothing about I-502. The marijuana one, right?

Unfortunately living so close to Portland, all of the political news/fliers I get are Oregon related.
SW WA pretty much gets ignored by the rest of the state.

Yea I-502 is marijuana. A lot of pro- stuff on TV here (stuff like "I don't like it, but we might as well tax and regulate it and put the money to schools" which is actually a good idea). Last polls I saw had it at 57% yes or something, which is really crazy.

But in the Seattle metro area there is a lot of opposition to R-74 for some reason. Signs everywhere, old people protesting anything, and even commercials ("I lost my business because of the gays" I shit you not that was an ad). I'm hoping it doesn't work.

In this day and age who, under the age of 50, should be homophobic anymore? It doesn't fail to surprise me when I see even younger people in uproar about any talk of gay people...?

Austin being in Texas makes it even better. You can have all the liberal hippie bullshit you want and still have the good conservative things like less strict gun control.

Watching the Eagles get their ass handed to them by NO made me think...

Why does the New Orleans mascot have testicles on his face?

Went to the Giants world series parade. It was cool. Shitload of people. Only one naked old dude which is not bad for being on the same day as Halloween in SF.

Pic in spoiler not of said naked dude. Sorry.

Morning, OTT. Polling place was 15 deep this morning, and that was :30 minutes before the doors open...and it's cold out.

I'll be hitting it (:whee:) on my way home after work.

It took me about 50 minutes to vote this morning. It wasn't too bad, except that they had a no electronics policy. :( I snuck in a tweet, though. :)

You actually can't physically vote down here at the polling places. You had to have gotten your mail in ballot ahead of time. Everything else is drop off.

(I think you can file a contested ballot still)

We'll soon have (state) legal marijuana and gay marriage. No chance of a new I-5 bridge though.
Oregon's marijuina is likely to go down, it's pretty poorly written.

I really wish they'd just drop the 'medicinal' cover story though and just admit they're smoking to get high.

Legal weed, hm. Well...alcohol is already given out like candy all over the place so I guess weed isn't going to be a whole lot worse.

Neither are exactly great for safety concerns though (driving, etc.)

The Washington law will put pretty strict rules on DUI and testing and such. They're really trying to spin it as being exactly the same as alcohol intoxication.

Right. Although some claim the washingon DUI standard of nine nanograms (ug) is too low.
The Oregon law proposedhad no limits on the amount of plants owned and would set up a comission overseen by growers and users, nothing independent.

Oh man, my wife fell for the "Buy my steaks from this truck" scam. It was a painted, licensed truck, but still.... :rolls eyes:

Just found out we have a ballot measure that would force porn stars to wear condoms for filming. I need to get out and vote today!

Kmart's going to have Max Payne 3 for $9 on Thanksgiving I think.
