Thank you Arianna

Yes, a Huffington article put things in perspective for me and I feel a calmer motivation today. Once more it is going to take us a lot of effort to get the message back to where it needs to be and off of the distraction. But things are so bad, I think that most will remember the party and in part the person (McCain) that got us in this desperate situation.

Things to think about and remind others off and to educate the masses about:

Gas was an average of $1.46 when Bush took office. McCain, like Cheney Bush, is in bed with big oil. His mantra of “drill drill drill” is more than enough evidence of it. And if you think things will change by drilling, you may be right, but they will not change for probably 20 years an by then, if we dedicate resources to an alternative, drilling and killing the environment for oil would be a moot point.

Barack Obama is not a Muslim. Most of these readers know that, but a lot of you live in areas and are related (like me) to people that continue this lie. Please tell everyone you know.

Over 4,000 US Soldiers have died in a conflict that has not been appropriately justified.

Our economy is suffering and spiraling out of control. And McCain wants to continue the same Bush economic plan that has gotten us in this situation.

Unemployment is on the rise. Foreclosures are running rampant.

These are just a few of the several things we all were thinking about a few weeks ago. We need to refocus and get back on track and reconsider who is the best to lead us out of the pit that we are in. McCain and Palin = Bush and Cheney. Thanks Arianna for reminding me of that. Please feel free to post other problems that we have encountered in the past 8 years.

  1. I’ll add a country divided. Left-wing/right-wing. We are all being forced into corners. Christians vs Everyone else. The widening chasm between the super-rich and the poor. “You are either with us or against us.” Tomorrow being the anniversary of the terrorist attacks, lets take a moment to also remember the civil liberties we’ve lost along the way.

  2. The US government has lost the respect of the rest of the world, whatever was left after 2 decades of increasingly radical conservatism. Thanks, Bush, what a legacy.

  3. Regarding Shelby’s comment, I’d like to point out that there are a number of reasonable people out there who are Christian and who are not part of that extreme “Christian” right-wing group. Obama is one of those people. I’m another. Most people like me are to the left of center, voted for Gore in 2000 and Kerry in 2004, and we are aghast at the policies of a Bush or McCain.
