Absolute Moral Authority

Vote Wisely

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 2, 2010

Forwarded to me from a friend of the family:


While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator..

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really?, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises…

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven..”

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell..

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says,

“Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted..”

  1. Voted, inconvenient a little bit, because of multiple registrations that I’m not responsible for, luckily I carried a couple of bills with me just in case of a conflict. Even if vote goes to old address I’m still in same district, so lets hope I don’t get booted.

    Now I just wait for 5 hours, till the early returns come in. It’s like being a pimply teen virgin going to prom with a fat girl. You know it’s gonna happen, you just don’t know how good, but good, Oh, good it will be.

    Time to show the dems our “oh face.”

    In my state, if you live in the same county and/or precinct, your vote should be counted. It’s the ones who have moved from a different county or another state who have trouble (or should have trouble) casting a legal ballot.

    I kid you not, I once had a voter request to vote at a precinct I was managing and when I asked where she lived, she said, “Chicago.” I offered her a paper ballot, as the law requires, but told her that I would challenge her vote since she is not even a resident of Mississippi (challenging inauthentic ballots is a required duty by poll managers). She declined to vote and left. That’s how they roll in Chicago, I guess.

  5. Does Maetenlock actually come to his stuff organically? Or just forget to attribute links?

    I’ve been curious about that for a while. I’m banned at AoS, but he still attributes me when I send him something, which is very nice of him.

    WP, come over to the chat thingie.

  7. Why? they won’t clear me. I never left,I watch every once in a while but I’m still in moderation.

  8. I can understand why 2 people hate me, but I also understand why I made them hate me, that is a net ~

    Everyone else? That is Knight in Shining armor Shitstain. And ANYONE who holds the deletion against me, I mailed WP, and all I had to do was tell them Which account would hold the keys.

    Not a ONE! of the grand loving heroes stood up, in fact, (I was disappointed by this) Patty said “we all have the Keys.” and many others repeated it. Mike said the same thing, and he said HE would take “the keys”

    What happened? NOTHING!

    I have to give WP my info, and others have to offer it as well.

    THAT is how you hand off a wordpress blog. I didn’t DESTROY content, I deleted Ignored content.

    Every Last one of the hostage admins had a chance to take the keys. None did, so I decided to stop being a bully boy, and I did, EXACTLY as I said.

    That isn’t being a jerk, It took me a MONTH! to do that, how is that, whatever. I don’t get it.

    Note: the last isn’t me trying to be a victim, it’s me genuinely confused about how it’s my fault for offering something up to everyone who wanted to have it, only for you not to take it?

    If anything made me angry, it was that. You guys getting angry about me responding appropriately and then Me getting angry and you getting angry.

    Ask Forged right for the reasonable breakdown.
