Ginga Boo on the Issues, 2012 edition

Well well well, it's been a long wait, but the US elections are upon us again. Ginga and BooBoo, being red blooded, natural born US citizens (though without birth certificates, long form or short - Ginga ate them when he was feeling particularly hungry one afternoon), have decided to share their opinions on the current issues facing the nation. Especially after the popularity of the last post in 2007, they felt it was their duty to inform their fellow citizens, of course, following in the footsteps of USA incorporated and outsourcing the back-office stuff (typing) to their favourite Indian.

1. Job creation
Ginga (Democrat) - Well, I will continue to have my job of sleeping, eating, pooping, peeing and getting massaged as long as my scientist parents can continue to pay me. So anyone that wants to fund science and technology has my vote.
BooBoo (Republican) - If we take the money out of government science funding and give it to corporations, they will spend it all on research and the parents will earn more and we'll eat treats all day, perhaps on a yacht in Nice.

2. Health care
Ginga (Republican) - I don't need to go to the doctor, I don't want to pay for BooBoo to go to the doctor. If I need anything there's always the emergency room.
BooBoo (Green party) - Pills are too expensive without insurance. Single payer all the way! We're moving to the UK (or at least Vermont, because I can't swim).

3. Gay rights
Ginga (Democrat) - Yeah, I have the right to be gay and the right to be straight. I want to be officially family with BooBoo.
BooBoo (a little too liberal) - No discrimination here. Let everyone have rights. Where is my beloved blanket?

4. Favourite election slogans
Ginga (Democrat) - On a bumper sticker I saw the other day - it's just like driving a car with automatic transmission, D to move forward, R for reverse.
BooBoo (Republican) - NoBama!

5. Favourite dog ?
Ginga - BooBoo.
BooBoo - Border collies are the only proper dogs. The rest of you are weird. Get back in your places, stop running all over! That goes for you humans too!
