All I can say tonight after learning that the senate has passed the $70 billion bill for continuing Bush's tragic war machine, the closure of the Holloway case before they even know what happened to her, the rise in the price of fuel which causes the price of everything to rise, the slow decline of our economy and everything that has gone wrong since Bush took office I am sorely depressed and wish I had the magic solution to change the way things are spiralling downhill.

I will never understand why we think someone who plays sports for a living or a person who plays make believe on the big screen are more valuable than a doctor who holds life and death in his hands everyday or a scientist who can develop a cure or a normal everyday person who goes to work everyday, supports and raises a family and lives a decent life.

Then I see most everyone going around being merry xmas cheery, like the war isn't raging on, that we do not have one decent candidate running in either party that will make the changes needed to turn things around, that gas prices are at an all-time high, along with everything else and on and on and on...

I guess what I am saying is that it's all good, now that I've given up hope!

Wishing everyone Peace. Maybe tomorrow I will feel more bright and cheerful.

I agree with everything you said here. I can't wait for Bush to be out of office. This country is in a mess in more ways than one.

I hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I've been feeling the same way lately, especially today. And unfortunately, I have another grievance to add to the list: the FCC board's ridiculous vote today to repeal the broadcast/newspaper cross-ownership ban, which will effectively put an end to whatever semblance we still have of a free press.

I was going to blog about that today, but chose instead to go with the Chris Dodd filibuster story - it just seemed more... well, more hopeful. It's not often that I have kind words to say about any politican these days. Sure, he was probably just grandstanding for publicity, but at least he accomplished something useful...for the time being, at least.

Let's all hope that tomorrow brings better news... We're way past due for some glad tidings of great joy!
