Change:etc

Sometimes you don’t like it & sometimes we think its a horrible thing but really let’s think where did you come from? Well the true answer is change! Where did your mother, father, your sister, your brother, well now to think of it your whole family come from, hmm? Well admit it, change! Basically everything came from changes so help make change don’t prevent it because one of the most important things in the universe is CHANGE!

Another one of the most important things in the universe is peace that’s why we’re not doing so well here on earth because some people don’t believe in peace & that effects other people some times & the effects can even turn out to be death or a serious injury or other horrible disasters, so every time you make a decision think how it affects other people. Peace & Change go hand in hand. They need each other and they need you to keep them alive.

hope-1

I’m not sure what to say. I was really happy, happier than I thought I’d be, when Obama was declared the winner.

I put a lot of faith in Nate Silver at 538, and he pretty much nailed it. I was not worried about Washington State going to Obama, so I picked a third party candidate. But I was feeling the chills when he was giving his acceptance speech. It was pretty amazing to see America do something right for a change.

As far as McCain goes, I thought his speech was dignified and statesmanlike. If we had seen that guy for the whole race I doubt it would have been such a blow-out.

Now I see that Obama has already picked Rahm Emanuel for his chief of Staff. At least that gets Rahm out of the Congress, which I think is a really good thing. this is the guy who has supported corporate hacks over truly progressive candidates for as long as I have been paying attention, so I hope with his departure from the scene that the Congress will move further Leftward.

So I guess I am truly happy that Obama won, but I am not holding out hope that it is going to be a lot better. I would like to see some smart appointments (we have a huge mess to clean up after the Huge Dick and his Fratboy Wonder) and an Apollo-program-like push for Made in America alternative energy program. Maybe that is too much to hope for, but I hear that hope is all the rage these days.

Just one more thing. When are the spellchecker guys (kinda like The Man) going to stop flagging Obama as a misspelled word? Seriously. WTF?
