I've said this before, but it keeps getting worse....
I'm feeling down and unmotivated. It seems like everyday there is something horrible coming out of the White House, and I'm getting burned out. We are a nation of fat, lazy Americans and we are letting them get away with whatever they want. While the Senate passes an energy plan that funnels billions of dollars to energy companies, including tax breaks and loan guarantees for new nuclear power plants, we say that's awful and then go fill up our SUVs. While the U.S. House of Representatives approves billions of dollars in cuts to veterans programs over the next 10 years, we put the empty gesture of a "Support Our Troops" magnet on our cars. And while the treasonous Karl Rove gets a raise instead of a swift kick in the ass out of the White House, we do nothing. (Myself included.)
We can go on blogging about this and that, but it's not enough.
What is it going to take for real change to occur? This cannot go on. And, where the hell is Howard Dean in all of this? Maybe he isn't the one.
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
