It was one year ago that I woke up on this first Wednesday of November feeling, no knowing, that it would get better. The nightmare, embarrassment, fear about what kind of country I was living in, a citizen of, had become, ended.
I was certain then, and I am certain now, that things will be alright. Things are better.
Health care will be a right not a privilege. And issues of civil rights (read gay marriage) will not be up for a popular vote (read Maine 2009). Wars will not be started over nothing, and hopefully wars that were started over nothing, will end. I don't hope, I know. I believe.
So to all those political pundits who want to make news out of the fact that the Republicans won a few elections yesterday, we have not forgotten what this party did to our country. And if there is anyone out there who has forgotten. Shame on you!
The expectations on our president to fix
the broken economy, reform health care, stop two wars, repair international
reputation, restore national respect... AND get "grief" (read crap) for not having it done
in 10 months.
Give me a break!
