11. I don't think anyone has won anything yet.....
Edited on Sun Aug-16-09 06:11 PM by FrenchieCat
But if we keep saying that someone has won, then perhaps someone will, and it won't be us.

It's called self defeatism.....and it happens to the best of us...
It can be caused by just about any turn of events or of a phrase or the appearance of such...
wording too ambigious for all liking, a statement not made that we wanted to hear,
and POOF...we are off the reservation! e.g., something a Secretary of the Administration
stating that the Public Option is not the end all of all,
and the AP takes that as saying "Fuck the Public Option" and prints the blaring headlines
as that being so....and then just waits.

Sad that we are this weak....actually as weak if not weaker than the elected Democrats we profess
are fucking it all up for us.

We are the ones that we are waiting for. Not the media, not this President, not this congress,
not the Republicans, and not the loonies. We are waiting for us....and from what I can tell,
looks like you've cancelled your appointment, and I know, that's an easy thing to do; takes
no effort at all.
