Nit picking...


                                       (baby Noodle archives)

They say cats are picky.

I've got news for you, humans have us beat a gizillion to one!

So I'm sitting there listening to the news (yes, cats watch the news) and there is a reporter talking to a group of undecided voters.

And I'm thinking how can they be undecided 10 days before this election?

And it dawns on me...

you have become a nation of nit pickers!

I heard things like" I just don't care for either one of them", Trump is terrible but I don't like what Biden has to say about what he would do with the Supreme Court, or how far left he'll go on health care".

Pic, pick, pick...

You people are on the Titanic and it's going down fast and there are those of you who can't make up their minds which life boat to get on so they don't get on any!

It reminds me of the old story;

There is a guy and he's in his house and there is a flood and the water is getting up to his waist and another guy comes by in a boat and says" hop on I'll give you a ride to safety".

And the guy says" no, that's okay God will save me.

Pretty soon the water is up to the guys chin and a family comes buy in another bigger boat an says" hop on and we'll take you to safety" and the guy says no, that's okay God will save me.

So the guy is now standing on his roof and the water is hitting his ankles and a man comes by in a helicopter. He looks down at the guy and says, "come on aboard I'll get you to safety".

"No" says the other man, " God will save me"

The next day the man is seen floating dead in the water.

He gets to Heaven and says to God" what happened, I had faith and I waited for you to save me".

And God says " what do you want from me I sent you 2 boats and a helicopter!"

That's who you guys are right now.

you are so busy getting so wrapped up in small individual petty grievances and minutia that you can't see the forest for the trees.

This is exactly what happened in 2016.

People were "Well, I don't like Hillary so I just won't vote".

You are supposed to learn from your mistakes and here you are on the verge of repeating the exact same thing that got you to this very dark, very scary, very unnecessary place.

Please...can you all just concentrate on the big picture?

10 days people! Vote like your life depends on it, it does!


Have a wonderful weekend...

    Excellent fable for the state of affairs, Noodle... the same could apply to some folk here in Scotland who seem determined to keep a hold of the sinking ship that is Westminster, England... lifeboats are not comfortable but are way better than the alternative!

  3. You're right, Noodle. We can't believe people focus on one issue. You have to look at everything.

  4. Undecided is hard to believe this close to an election, especially given the choices - sometimes I don't understand humans either Noodle. I love your kitten photo sweetie.

  7. If this doesn't work America is a nation in ruins. That's how it feels to be.
