With pressure on all sides at the moment for everyone I find it fascinating what comes up. Does it make you sad the blatant racism Obama has leveled at him? I get a bit sad about it since its obvious its systemic and anything that entrenched is here to stay. It is delightful that it passed health care yet there is this sense of lack of appreciation across the board. I am not saying we should be smug but doesn't everyone understand something had to give and by the way this isn't the most radical choice anyway? Is it that hard to understand that we are always told half truths on both sides and that THEY don't care about US. Meaning big business? It's not a society based on integrity and all for one and the higher good. It's a dog eat dog world.Its all for capitalism. I would listen to the extreme right pundits if they all would watch the last two Micheal Moore movies. I would...and I think every fundamentalist should read Chris Hitchens book about God. Its important to understand each other. I also think everyone who is bigoted against bigots should take a good look. The world is large enough for both. Yet its still bigotry to be bigoted against bigots...get it?
Finally I am happy Nancy Pelosi and company got something done. I am grateful for the whole shebang.
Looking forward to more advancement in taking care of America and I can almost endure, I say almost the lies and thinly veiled racism if it means no matter what we get stuff done that matters.
We can't win them all (battles) but we can win some of them...and that feels right.
We all should care.
