History Made!

From the students from Selma, to the Tuskegee Airman, those who made the journey and braved the frigid temperatures bear witness to history. As I sit alone in Oakland, California (half a world away) I bear witness in awe. My hands are shaking as I hold my head and view the coming change. It is more than the undeniable charisma of one man; it is instead the collective dreams of a nation come to beautifully vivid reality. This moment possible because of millions who wished it so.

Still trying to find the words

Two days removed from the historic election, I am still trying to find the words to describe how I feel. The joy and elation (now ebbing), and giving way to nervousness and uncertainty. Not for the country, not for the man, but for us. As I rode the bus yesterday I heard the cheers and chants of the young kids not old enough to vote. In the morning they were jubilant and full of promise, by mid afternoon they had degenerated into mindlessness and foolishness.

I have argued and admired with others. I have delved into this process far more than even I would have thought. It is no small event.The historic nature is of course the draw. The possibility and symbolism of a black U.S. president is no small feat. Continue reading Change or Die!

Fuck-Tards are running our country

I’m sitting here at my desk playing spider Solitaire and listening to MSNBC in the back ground. As you know the Republican National Conference is going on and it’s an even bigger joke than anyone could fictionalize. These idiots keep spitting out the exact same lines over and over again no matter what the question. It’s starting to look like Dubbya is the smartest one in that party. These vie bastards who have done everything in the last eight years to destroy this country and disregard the constitution, alienate our allies and spread war and death across the globe.
