New Hampshire

Once again it’s election time.

Here we are in the same place we find ourselves every 2, 4, or 6 years.  It’s election time.  You can rest assured that Wed morning we’ll wake up with either Clinton or Trump the elected president and about half of us will be happy or bragging and the other half will be unhappy and possibly even complaining about how rigged the process is.  Then, a few days later we’ll all go back to our lives and forget about the process for another 2/4/6 years then it starts all over again.

I’ll admit, I don’t like the election process too much.  The delegates to elect the nominee is rigged plus the media likes to jump in and potentially influence the election (perfect example, Hillary Clinton announced she won the New Hampshire primary at 7:45PM eastern time even though the polls in New Hampshire were open until 8PM.  The news ran with this from that minute over the next 48 hours and then people oved onto the next set of states.  The truth?  Bernie Sanders won NH’s Democratic primary but not a single person or news agency went back and recanted the store about Clinton winning.  This isn’t the first time, too, remember Florida in 2000 when the news announced a winner even though polls were still open?

It’s safe to say that I have mixed feelings about it but a lot of this is also dealing with the people at the locations (so your mileage may vary).  I had my uBox at a uHaul storage facility and I loaded it up there (shuttling my stuff in my car, renting a cargo van one day to move large items).  This required at least 24 hour notice.
