Just sitting here listening to the
Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle, wondering what happened to our country. How did we get here. Is it because we returned Integrity, and family values to the White House, or is it because we were lied to? Just wondering...

1. Funny...
I was just thinking kind of along the same lines. But maybe more how I've personally changed.
In 1999 to 2000 my wife and I had just bought six acres of land in the rural town where I grew up. We were building this house that I'm sitting in right now. Our kids were 7 and 4. Basically in hindsight we were blissfully naive.

Then came Bush's "election". OK, a dissapointment maybe but how bad could the next four years be? The eighties were a great time to be a clueless teenager. How different could it be?

Then came 9/11. Holy crap! Friggin awful. Why do they hate us? Must figure this out I think to myself. Well bush figures this out for us... they're friggin nuts, hate our freedom etc. Yea right I think. Anyway going into Afghanistan seems reasonable.

Then comes the Iraq invasion. Holy fuck I think. This is crazy. Like some bad alternative history sci-fi novel. This is not how I saw things working out! I'm an adult now with a family to worry about. They must be stopped! I want our future back!

Program every damn Senators phone number into your cellphone. Call them constantly.

Tell everone who will hear the truth about MSM epecially Fox. Give them alternatives.

Make your way to D.C. on Jan. 20 if at all possible. Dress like a supporter. Smile. When Bush comes turn your back. Let's see them edit that out!

2. Sorry...
I didn't mean to rant. I think it's because we are being lied to.
