What ever happens, we are fucked. We've been used
and abused and there is nothing left.

3. If the foreplay leaves one with a bad feeling, just wait until the inflation hits. nt

9. I didn't feel this beaten down under GWB
Because then there was always this hope that if we could just survive till the end of his term, we could get a dem in there to set things right. Do the right thing- even if it was hard. Now I realize that was just a dream.

Now we have a dem railing against us for asking him to do what's right.

It's a backward, upside down, fucked up world...

Where do you even go from here?

12. I'm just mad at myself for not seeing this coming.
I was 100% snowed. 2 years ago, I never thought we'd be here. Never. 6 months ago I woke the fuck up and stopped making excuses and rationalizations. It's gone downhill from there.

But at least my eyes are wide open now. Some are still in dreamland. It's a blue pill red pill situation.

13. Right.
I knew the Bush years would suck (although they sucked a lot more than I could have imagined). But it's a whole different ballgame when your own team is playing against you.

15. What really bothers me is that there is no direction
at this point within the democratic party and even within this nation.

27. Just because hope is gone doesn't mean
we can't persevere.

We are the heroines and heroes. No one is DC is going to help us. We must organize locally and form our own communities so to survive in a sharing and caring atmosphere.

Since, I'm stuck in Dumfukistan (formerly known as the state of Ohio), I'm thinking of hiding in a rural area. I haven't met many like-minded people...but when they wake up and find themselves in The Greater Depression, I don't think they'll be too happy. So hiding might be a good idea.

I already encounter much anger.

Get your pitchforks now. I'm sure they're all made in China. I might go to Amish country and see if I can buy one there.
