Mid term elections are now heating up, and the insults, innuendo and accusations are beginning to fly. Up to this point it has almost seemed lackadaisical, or at least inconsistent, almost polite. No more, though, it is full swing, and the hate is evident.
Each candidate, more accurately each candidate's proxy, PAC or party apparatus is desperately trying to convince voters of the incompetence, and potentially criminal activity of the opponent. One can only assume it is much easier to compel people to believe the bad. "How could you possibly elect my opponent, he is so much worse?"
After only a couple of days we have decided that we, here at Life Explained, a company of sane, rational, productive, tax paying citizens of this nation, can not possibly waste our vote on any of these awful, despicable felons. In fact we are not sure they are wholesome enough, have the mental acuity, and moral faculties to clean bathrooms in Hell.
Of course, we are still committed to fulfilling our obligations in this grand experiment known as the United States. As Charles de Montesquieu said, so conveniently appropriate for the sake of this blog post, "the tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy." Well said, Mr Montesquieu, well said.
So, we have decided, since we need to vote, all of us, here at Life Explained, we are going to run Dr. Dawg in every race, in every district in which one of our fine employees, here at Life Explained, lives.
Needless to say, this is going to be very expensive, television ads, campaign staff, and all. So, please, for the sake of our country, give generously to the "Dr. Dawg (please fill in seat, judgeship, school board, or any elected position here). It is your civic duty. Remember, vote for Dr. Dawg, it is your only hope.

Mid Terms, Our Big Chance.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
