Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

screenshot-ballotAs we head into the last four days of this election cycle, I continue to hang up on the pollsters. They can try to figure out who’s ahead in NH without me. I’m toast.

I thought it was kind of interesting that the Country Music Association awarded 2016 song of the year this week to Lori McKenna for Humble and Kind, sung by Tim McGraw.

Maybe we can be humble and kind next year?   🇺🇸

  1. Good luck with all that will happen in the coming week. We’re even being inundated with election stories here in Australia and on election day, which is actually Wednesday here, there will be 24/7 coverage on the TV. Netflix is looking better and better!

    I wish the election was today, nobody wins, and they leave us alone to just rule ourselves!

  3. You are so right. The whole darn thing is disheartening

    I echo your hope for next year: Humility and kindness all around. Please.

    Humility and kindness seems to have passed right by our politicians. And hanging up on the pollsters is almost a full time job!! The CMA Awards were a welcome relief from the chaos. And as if this never ending election nonsense isn’t enough, we have to turn the damn clocks back!!

    Great photo for the theme.

    Great photo for this theme! Why can I not think of something like that 😉 And I second that, let’s be humble and kind. I’m not actually American but this is something everyone should strive for.

    Wow – there’s definitely been an absence of humility and kindness during this campaign. I have my fingers crossed that the US can find their way out of this mess because it isn’t looking very good right now.

    btw – I’m not a country & western fan, but I LOVE that song!

  9. I think that the chaos thus far is nothing compared the chaos that is going to follow the election — no matter WHO wins. Thank you for actually knowing what chaos is and recognizing that it is NOT a pile of Legos 🙂

    Unfortunately for you, Judy. You might be seeing 2020 candidates before too long. This one is in the trash heap.

    I’ll watch these elections on TV live, Judy. ‘Euronews’ said would translate all day.

    I wish this post weren’t so spot-on. “I’m toast” speaks for me too. I laughed out loud when I read Joyce’s comment, though there were tears in my laughter. With Marilyn, I fear the aftermath. And I hope hope hope that Dan is wrong; my brain would melt. Thanks for allowing this forum for reasonable people!

    I can’t wait for Tuesday! I’m so ready to vote and to have the (right!) decision made! And to move on, with humility and kindness, one hopes!

    Humility? Kindness? Wouldn’t that be a change? I just hope I make it through the election with my sanity intact. And I agree with Marilyn, no matter the outcome, it will be rough going forward.

  20. You have it nailed! I am so sick of politics and election cycles lasting practically 4 years! I wish there was ONE primary date for the entire country, no sooner than Sept 1st. I felt disenfranchised in late April when it was our primary, and 3/4 of the field was already out of the race. Let the voters, not the media decide. I stopped answering the house phone a year ago. They get the machine and I tell them all about our Model Railroad Club when they listen to my outgoing message! Humility in politics? Never happen. Turn off the TV; go quilt is my mantra!

  21. We use to watch local and national news in the morning and then in the evening. We now watch local news in the morning – end of story. We can’t take any more than that. This morning they started telling us about how they are going to keep us ‘safe’ on Tuesday. Who said we weren’t going to be safe going to the local church to vote? So, now for the next four days in additional to all the political rhetoric they will fear monger about how we could be attacked while voting. Thank heave for the on and off and mute buttons. 🙂

    Living in New Hampshire we get non-stop calls for polls and mail pieces. Some of the mail pieces are getting so mean I just throw them away without looking at them anymore. I’ve unplugged the phone until Wednesday.

    It has gotten to the point where I don’t even watch the news anymore. Doesn’t matter if it’s an American or Canadian network, I know that if the news is on within 10 minutes there’s going to be another segment related to your election – ugh.
    I’m toast too and I don’t even live there 🙂

  24. Judy, my first thought was exactly the same as yours, but I didn’t know what picture to use. Kudos on finding the right one. I wouldn’t mind so much if issues and how to deal with them were what was highlighted. Instead, we get unbridled negativity, spin, downright lies, and so much nastiness and hatred that I wonder how people think we’re supposed to live together once it’s all over.

    Great and neutrally written post, Judy. I tend to comment upon blogs but keep mine empty of politics! The humble and kind “next year” comment was so true!
    Politics creates funny fodder on “SNL,” though. . . 😀

    We weren’t humble and kind to one another this year – that is for sure! SOON it will all be over and unwanted phone messages won’t fill up the answering machine. I know it is worse where you are but I am done.

  29. Wake up! It was all a bad dream, silly. Of COURSE something as surreal as the Clintons getting back into the White House or Donald Trump being president can’t be real. It was just a nightmare you had….
