My Opinion November 11, 2012 at 04:11 PM
Personally I do not understand how some can stand in long lines for the new IPhone or days to be the first to see a new movie but when it comes to voting they say "just did not have time to wait"! People elections come every two/four years: plan ahead and make it as important as getting that first Iphone or seeing a new movie! Someone, a business owner, tried to debate the outcome of this election with me yesterday and my response was "it's over" get over it and for those of us who lived with W for 8 years and did not threaten him or our employees the next four years will be easy......quit complaining and get to work! jmho

PS I personally will not spend a dime of my hard EARNED, yes I earned it, money on any business that penalizes their employees because we reelected OUR President~! Applebee's has the honor of being the first on my list.....Walmart has always been on that list and no I will not spend my money at that "store"!

Yes, no one should wait in line to vote. But everyone here can solve that problem themselves and do absentee voting on their own time. I did it this year and there was no line at my mailbox. We should do 100% mail in ballots in Maryland just like Oregon and Washington and save a whole bunch of money and trouble. I know crazy idea saving money and time.

"Obama won. Get OVER IT! You have a Black President for another 4 years! Na-na-na-na-na!" 7 Oaks Mom? Its a shame someone with that kind of childish mentality is a mom. Love how you capitalize the B in black, it speaks volumes.
