At least libertarians order pizza

As most of you know, I grew up Mormon so I've been to a lot of boring meetings in my life. There are a lot of people who think they know how long and boring LDS church meetings are because a lot of non members have tagged along to visit a few meetings or maybe even joined for a while.

Unless you've been in the thick of it however; you have no idea.

All those cute little gifts they leave, the phone calls, the invites to dinner to new members or to those "investigating", they are all planned out at meetings and I cannot emphasis this next point enough, WITHOUT COFFEE.

This brings me to my main point and this point is hovering over me like a really long lasting dental appointment in the morning.

The county republican convention is tomorrow.

I have been told this thing will go from 8AM to 5PM-have I mentioned that I have four children with me ?

Republicans could learn a thing or two from libertarians (aside from the obvious like a whole new philosophy) .

For one thing, libertarians would never, under any circumstance, begin an event at 8AM. Also, I'm sure if they were to start something at that ridiculous hour, no one would be expected to be dressed to the nines. I have been to multiple libertarian events where pizza was delivered and I personally watched Arron Russo slip in late through a side door wearing a bathrobe and slippers.

I mean this thing is going to be long and boring for the people that actually care about what's being said.

I don't.

I'm there to nominate myself to the state convention, consult my cheat sheet for freedom loving candidates and hopefully, in the end, this will send a somewhat more effective, yet no where near as satisfying message as yelling "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore" from an opened window.
