That campaign season has started up once again. The every 4 HY season where citizens decide who will be the next President of the United States. Actually, it seems to many of us who are excluded from the process, like the Presidential Campaign season neVer ends. Like as soon as the election is over & the decision made by the voters, members of the opposing party start looking around for the next possible candidate to topple the present President. Seems like there’s only the period btw the election & the inauguration that is devoid of campaign-like speeches & seeking of the limelight so the face & name will be known during the next election cycle. Name & face recognition as it is known.
Now tho, it’s getting good & interesting. But it seems that campaigning itself doesn’t change much from cycle to cycle. When it comes to selecting the best candidates to compete for the highest office in our country, U. S. A!, the dialogue never much gets above name calling & mud slinging. Calling each other names & naming opponents’ shortcomings. Using descriptive language that would never eVer cross the lips of self-respecting Offspring of Great Todo, if said Self-Respecting Offspring of Great Todo could actually speak the language understood by humans.
Sometimes I think K9 Nation is much more civilized & adaptable than the humans we are charged with guiding & assisting. After all, we can understand & respond to human language, praise & commands. Humans aren’t able to perceive what dogs are trying to express without aid of computer analytics, modeling. You know. Electronic devices to boost user confidence in assumptions & conclusions.
Yep! Tis that season again. Now they are campaigning all over as the Primaries heat up. Now the rhetoric & debate has descended to comparing the size of the candidates’ various body parts. Another discussion us dogs would never stoop to even if we could stoop or debate.
& here’s an interesting new idea that gives us dogs hope for the K9 Franchise in the near future. We’ll hafta monitor how it goes here in this cycle. An elected official in my state, the Great State of CA, is suggesting that the franchise for humans should be extended to humans who achieve the age of 16 in HY. We, here at Todo Chronicles, speaking for K9 Nation, would be more than satisfied if the franchise were extended to those of us who achieve the age of 21 in K9Y. It is still our position that we understand what is going on & display as much interest in exercising the franchise as about 75% of the human citizens of our country. Yep. Tis THAT season . . . again.
