14. "Always been that way, will always be that way"
"And there's nothing you can do about it"

That's what my aunt used to tell me, when I'd be trying to get her to take action about this, that, or the other. That was, until Katrina. Now this Bush 2004 voter is eager to "vote for Hillary". I'd like to see her engage in some civil disobedience, though, before that time.
