Nice!

Speaking of politics...

Former president Barack Obama is back on the campaign trail as he made his way to at Cox Pavilion at UNLV in Las Vegas to speak at a Democratic rally ahead of the midterm elections. POTUS told voters they can't afford to NOT vote if they want to see changes in the White House and in Congress.

“The biggest threat to our democracy is indifference,” he told the thousands of people gathered at the rally. “The biggest threat to our democracy is cynicism that says we’re just going to stay home because my voice doesn’t matter. Don’t tell me your vote doesn’t count,” Obama said. “If you don’t like what’s going on right now — and you shouldn’t — don’t complain. Don’t get anxious. Don’t throw up your hands. Don’t boo. Vote.”

Ha! Peep his speech above.

Make your vote count on November 6th!  If you want checks on the Head Cheeto In Charge, you gotta flip Congress blue and focus on your local government as well.

 

EXTRAS:

1.  Bombs are being mailed to The Obamas in D.C., Hillary Clinton's and George Soros' home in Westchester, NY, the CNN building in NYC, and the FBI.  All were intercepted, and authorities believe they're all from the same place. STORY
