94. I'm with you Goddess,
I agree that our country is FUBAR and we have a lot of work to do.

I want ALL the troops home and let people work out the principals of democracy and we can LEAD by example, not with fire-power.

I want all the good ideas of Green Jobs to become the reality. The Military Idustrial Complex will need to re-train it's agenda.

No more waiting for civil rights for LGBT community.

And is it all so corrupt and racist that bringing Mexico out of the 3rd world, is never even discussed?
Why is it always about them sneaking in?
How can we have a wholesome country when we border on a land of "The Grapes of Wrath?"

Even still, I love America.
