13. The country is sure better off than it was 4 years ago

8 years of moving in the wrong direction; 3 1/2 now of moving back in the right direction. It will take another 4 1/2 years to finish the job.

And yes, I personally am better off. But that is irrelevant. The important thing is we now live in a country that does not condone torture, in which gay men and women are allowed to serve openly in the military, in which people will no longer be able to be kicked off their insurance when they're sick, in which women may bring suit at any time when they discover they've been discriminated against in pay. The list can go on and on. And, oh yes, we're better off than we were four years ago.
