Hello Bloggers! I'm still on hiatus, but I want to wish everyone in the blogosphere Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! I will be visiting friends and family in my hometown of New Orleans - to potential burglars, my house and pets will have a sitter. :) Anyway, I journey on to good food and good times! Go Saints! I hope you guys have great plans too.
Btw, it looks like our optimism involving the Democrats and their ability to pass real reform (health care, financial, etc.) was misguided at best. I don't know about you guys, but I've decided that Joe Lieberman is public enemy #1. I also feel the Progressive Caucus is incapable of playing hardball. Finally, I think Barack Obama and Rahm Emanuel are huge pussies. Change my ass!
The whole bunch make me sick, especially considering how much is at stake.
The Republicans are the worst of the worst, but unless something big changes soon, I will no longer consider myself a Democrat. I will re-register in early 2010 as an Independent and refuse to donate any more money to the Democratic Party. The whole system is just too corrupt in my opinion, and they don't deserve my support anymore. Feel free to try and talk me down, but that's the way I feel today.
I say let's forget about our pathetic political leaders and try to find some joy in our own lives during this holiday season. We have no choice really, since nothing good ever seems to come out of Washington anymore. I hope we can all find some peace despite the bitter disappointment.
I hope you guys have a great holiday and a fantastic New Year!
