Election day is Tuesday. If you have not already voted, you really really have to. Although George Carlin said you don’t get to complain about a bad representative if you voted for him or her (most of the bad ones are hims) – apologies if you live in Michelle Bachmann’s district) – I say you don’t get to complain about any politician if, like George Carlin, you didn’t vote at all. For what it’s worth, my endorsements in selected races are here.
If you are looking for a single issue to determine your vote in a particular campaign, you may want to consider which candidate accepts the science on global warming. Here’s the latest warming, er warning, from the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) courtesy of the Guardian. My new website is now up at www.halginsberg.com. Previously, that link took you to www.radiomonterey.com. If it still does, then clear the cache of your browser. If you don’t know how to do that, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget I also have a new call-in number. You can only talk to me onair by calling 1 (844) FOR-HALG/1 (844) 367-4254 to reach the Hal Ginsberg Morning Show.
In every weekly newsletter, I urge recipients to forward it. Let me here emphasize the importance of spreading the word. Without a terrestrial radio signal, I am wholly dependent on people making an extra effort to find us on their computer or via their smart device. So, please please pretty please with sugar on topic forward this newsletter to any friend, relative, acquaintance, casual contact, frenemy, enemy, or nemesis, whom you think would enjoy learning about the Morning Show.
You can connect with other California Central Coast progressive talk fans on facebook at The Hal Ginsberg Morning Show on Facebook. You can also find me on twitter at @HalGinsberg.
