Never stop fighting
I wish I could be a better writer and put the hundreds of thoughts that are currently racing through my mind down so eloquently as many of you have done today but I'll have to settle with what I got.

It's been a bad day for us all. We now have to endure the extensive gloating of those fucking morons in the media and on the internet. In a world that makes sense, if you break the law you go to jail regardless of power or money. Unfortunately, America stopped being that way eons ago.

I'm still holding out hope but it is a fading light. Today has been a hard slap in the face to all of us who have held out hope for months that one of these corrupt bastards would actually get what they deserve for once.

But I'll never give up. Having dealt with Bush supporters on the internet, I can safely say that they are the most vile, disgusting excuses for human beings you'd never want to meet (I seperate them from regular Republicans since it is obvious these creeps are NOT Republicans). I refuse to surrender to such scum. And I refuse to surrender to the corrupt media. And, finally, to the thugs that are currently running the country.

I'm taking my goddamned country back, no matter how long it takes.

1. Winston Churchill faced difficult times too.
An excerpt of one of Churhill's speeches:

"Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail."

"We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."


An interesting tidbit courtesy of an Amazon.com reviewer of a book titled "The Wicked Wit of Winston Churchill" named J. Guild:

One of Churchill's most famous speeches is that of June 1940: "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills..." It is said that, as he paused in the great uproar that greeted these words, Churchill muttered to a colleague next to him, 'And We'll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles because that's bloody well all we've got!

To wit... Though the going may get rough, we'll never give in, we'll never give up and we'll never give out!

In the end, truth and enlightenment will win (I believe... but if we don't stop this thing before it goes too much farther, it may be a long struggle indeed...).
