Red, White and Blue

I’m being proactive this week.  I called the Prince George’s County Board of Elections to check to see what I needed to do to get my address updated in order to receive my ballot for the November election.  If you remember I was not able to vote in the Maryland Primary Election due to an error in record keeping at the Board of Elections and I am not about to let that happen again.  The woman that I spoke to remembered me (I really did raise a stink back then), she told me that I could either mail or fax my request.  I’m going to fax and then follow up with a call.

As I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs today I came across a link to The Overseas Vote Foundation.  I clicked, I read, I’m impressed.  They have all the information you need right on this one website.  I’m using it.  Of course I’m also going to send my fax, well because I WILL VOTE IN THIS ELECTION).  Thanks Monica for linking to this site!  What a wonderful resource for us Americans overseas.

Now I realize I’m probably opening up a can of worms but here goes…

I watched a muppet video that was posted on youtube in which the American flag is displayed incorrectly.   As I was waiting for the video to load I looked at the flag and thought something just didn’t seem quite right and that led to my google search in which I found this.  Notice anything wrong?  How about this one?  Do these guys even have a clue? I mean the Muppet’s I can understand, but a man who wants to be our Commander in Chief AND “The” Commander in Chief?  Common guys!  Oh, and if you are a geek like me here’s a link to the Flag Code.
