You might want to think about getting out of the Lounge...
I've been hanging in the Lounge for the past week or so, because I am so burned out and disheartened and exhausted by the current political situation...but I ventured into LBN today and there is really an awful lot of stuff going on, stuff that is NOT being covered by MSM. Stuff like:

1. Habeus corpus going down the tubes
2. Bush blatantly lying on ABC
3. The WH admitting they WANTED North Korea to test nukes, so they could invade

Weirdly enough, I'm encouraged. It seems to be that the blatantness of these latest actions points to the neocon's increasing desperation. I am heartened to believe that we are going to retake congress in November. These people are getting more obvious in their insanity, and none but the most diehard neocon will be able to ignore it.

First time I've ever felt BETTER going into LBN! :hi:
