Brodie woofs about the “Spin”

Round One of the presidential debates…ding, ding…over…who won…who knows…do you care?!?… Some demonstrate excessive patterns with this race to the White House…like pundits, the media, newspaper writers, pollsters…and a conglomerate of human beings that continue to “spin” the “after-debate” to favor their candidate…ad nausea…Hey how about that word!  But let’s get back to spin.

According to the Cambridge Dictionary…spin as a noun refers to a particular way of representing an event or situation to the public so that it will be understood in a way that you want it to be understood, i.e., “They put a positive spin on the story, but no one was fooled.” Now…spin as verb means to turn around and around, or to cause something or someone to turn.  That’s the spin my four-legged brain understands.

See…one of my canine friends suddenly became hooked on the spin…spinning and chasing his tail…he’d do this frantically when he was super stressed out…and once he got going there was no stopping him until he reached complete exhaustion.  His loving people took him to a dog behaviorist…and wow… He learned to run through tunnel agility courses in straight lines…he increased his daily exercise routine & mental stimulation… worked with activity toys, puzzles and problem solving games that helped relieve stress and re-focus his mind and Voila!…no more spin!  So…clearly we have a simple cure to reduce the spin…like…avoid stress…be sure to exercise, run straight lines and work challenging puzzles…got that?!?!

Next debate is between the vice presidential candidates schedules on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, 9 p.m. EST.  Paws up and run those tunnels…

Brodie howls “presidential debates”

On your mark, get set…watch the presidential debates.  Don’t give up on this horse race until somebody crosses the November finish line.  Two favorites…a seasoned political mare wearing blue, a never been in the political world wild stallion sporting red… both at the gate along with two long shots…an independent entry in gold silks and a green & progressive entry in green silks. So don’t tune out…tune in and get ready to pick your winner… forget the place & show…it’s winner take all.  Take the polls with a few grains of salt.  If you ever took a course in simple statistics you understand how the survey process works and that the management of data can reach about any outcome…the larger the sample, the smaller the margin of error…with a 4 percent margin of error…see that sounds good…but trust yourself and the information you have gathered.

My golden ears and eyes are open to this horse race as they make the turn to the finish and my racing form waits ready for the following dates:
