I'm Sad and Scared
"a country deserves it's president" - Howard Stern
"how does it feel to live in the dumbest country in the world" - co-worker
"it's a day of mourning" - friend
"I'm sad and scared" - me
"mostly it makes me sad b/c sooo many people in our country believe that Bush's approach (which is mostly the equivalent of a school yard bully) is the right one. also, that they don't see/understand the long range damage he is doing domestically" - another friend
I don't even know what to say. The war won't end. Many more soldiers will get killed. The stock market is up. The price of oil won't go down. The economy - well, damn it.
Maybe I'm wrong. If most Americans think it's ok to invade a country under false pretenses, then maybe it's right. If most Americans believe that slashing military benefits and paying teachers less is ok, then maybe it's right. If most Americans believe that a chump change "tax break" is ok, while the richest people in this country get a huge tax break, then maybe it's right. If most Americans don't care that the vice-president has anything to gain by Haliburton getting every contract in Iraq, then maybe I shouldn't. If most American's think it's ok to let the government have access to every little detail of your life, without letting you know, then maybe it is ok.
I get at least a couple of hours of being depressed. Plus, I've got either a cold or the flu, so I feel like caca.
We have to organize better. I know I didn't do enough.
