Voting Incentives

I voted today.

Then I went to my favorite addiction, even though I only get decaf, and got a free tall coffee.  Yes, all Starbucks are participating, so you can go and get one too!

However, I was a bit startled to find that the "Way I See It" quote on my free-voting cup was as follows:

"Politics is about getting outside of yourself and your own problems for a little while and fully immersing yourself in the lies and the deceit of others. "  -Stephen Elliott

Hmm.  Coincidence?

Let's hope. Otherwise, they will have some sort of uproar at some of our favorite caffeine locations.

 If not, then we have far bigger problems:  our stay awake potion that we put in our veins is anti-government.  Crap.

Thanks for letting me know! I went to Starbucks this morning and couldn't figure out why on earth there were so many people there! :) Now I know.

I voted AND went to Starbucks, but it was only for a tall coffee, and I don't drink coffee. You would think in Utah they would also do hot chocolate. :(

Don't forget there are similar incentives at Krispy Kreme and Ben & Jerry's.
