Bathroom Sink Drain Stopper Clogged

I was having a little problem with my computer figuring out how I could attach a book file to an e-mail and feeling dumb that the answer didn't just pop into this head of mine when I looked online at some of the news. The different government agencies in Washington seem to be having problems with their computers too. The V. A. records seem to be in chaos. The IRS claims problems with computers holding vital information have been crashing. The State Department’s global database for issuing travel documents is experiencing problems, resulting in major delays for potentially millions of people around the world waiting for U.S. passports and visas, officials said Wednesday. The folks running Social Security Disability programshave spent many millions of dollars and apparently are now admitting that it hasn't accomplished much if anything and I don't want to talk about computers and Obamacare. I wouldn't know where to start.
So, all in all I figure I am in pretty good shape. I can recall when computers were first introduced at the railroad where I was employed. At first, none of the department heads wanted to have anything to do with them. About a decade later they had found some acceptance but nobody trusted them. The problem was they had a tendency to crash when you needed the information they contained. Decades later they have become reasonably dependable.
Now here we are well into the 21st Century and billions of dollars later and Washington still hasn't figured out how to handle information and hang onto it competently. Sure makes my little problems seem insignificant.

Vote - You have heard this over and over again. It sounds so simply, but it's true. Most complainers never vote or they vote without first educating themselves about their candidates.
- Absentee Ballots – Always register for absentee ballots. This allows you the time to research and learn about the candidates and proposals. It’s amazing how many people see the slate of candidates and proposals for the first time when they are standing in line to vote. DON’T STAND IN LINE TO VOTE.
Find Information About Your Specific State
- If you don’t know, never vote for an incumbent. Sounds simple, but the facts show that incumbents always have an advantage.
- Don’t vote along party lines. Know your issues and support those who will most like support your ideas.
Campaign – Work and support those who you want to see in office.
Local Politics First – Involve yourself first on the local campaigns and elections.
Leave Negative Politics in the Trash – Although bad mouthing those who differ from your point of view sometimes work, it does not to actually change attitudes and legislation.
Listen – If you do nothing at all, listen! If you “really” listen, you will easily discover who the closed minded people are, those that are all talk and no action, those who are shallow, and those who have negative and personal agendas.
Issues – Don’t try to become an expert on all issues. Research, read, question and work hard trying to find out as much information as you can about very specific issues that are near and true to your heart.
