Facebook issues, YT vid update

TGIF, yo! I am working to re-activate my Facebook page that was deactivated two days ago. Made lunches, dropped boy one @ school. Grabbed boy two, made it to doctor’s apt, shuttled to school BEFORE lunchtime (oh yeah, go me, go me…) and so half my day is gone. Luckily on Friday the boys have chess club, so I get and extra hour. It’s like a weekly daylight savings. Usually goes to cleaning a random something that suddenly needs it.

FB is really weird, though. Though I haven’t officially announced a specific campaign, an “exploratory committee”, if you will, I don’t see how that could have led to my page being shut down. Politicians use FB everyday, right? Hmmm…. I haven’t wanted a FB page. Ever. I was reluctant now, but that call is not up to me. I kinda HAVE to have one. In order to have a chance at even having a chance… the chips I put in my kids luches everyday have a Facebook page! If a politician doesn’t have one, then he is ‘not cool’ with the 35+ year old people who still claim they are 29 and relevant in popular culture. So…

YouTube video is written, images collected, I’ll start either later today or tomorrow shooting. If all goes well, drop it Sunday night. I’m nervious. “The Hastert Rule” seems to have been… um, bottlenecked… would be the polite way of stating it. It is understandable. Though not a wild crazy work of fantasy, the piece does deal with topics that are similar in nature to the ones being censored. I fear it may be caught up in the same net.

So all my hopes ride on my main plank video, the answer to the problems, the focus- End the Electoral College. So, its ‘put up or shut up’ cliché time. I’m hoping I can present an entertaining, motivating, memorable political science video.

…what could possibly go wrong?
