Mix it up at the polls, baby

November 15, 2013 

As Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n Roll and four-time Grammy Award winner for gospel music would say, TCB (Taking Care of Business), we must do. We will mix it up, baby.

In the 2014, 2015 and 2016 elections, of course we will vote Republican in the primaries. But in the big ones, the general elections, we will mix it up, baby. We will vote and elect Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Tea Party that are the best qualified and dedicated to the USA.

Oh, yes, we know how to vote a split ticket and no one can buy our votes. Now if you want to donate some dog and cat food, that would be great and a blessing and we will be very thankful. We need jobs, jobs, jobs and we need honest, qualified and dedicated candidates.

Just look around: poverty everywhere. This is the USA. We've got to have law and order. Quinn said bring in the National Guard for Chicago's high crime. Well how about East St. Louis, and all below the hill and Belleville crimes, guns, dope on the streets. Just look around, read the papers, turn on KQQZ and TV news. Enough is enough, folks.
