The Election, The Economy, The Horror
Anyone have any thoughts on the up an coming presidential elections?
Thanks to the supreme court and Newt Gingrich's superpac we now clearly see the horror that unlimited spending can do to our democratic process. Barbra Bush says this is the "Worst campaign" she's ever seen. If I wasn't so cynical about the power of money I'd say this just might be the year that the Republican party self destructs.
I'm so used to the bad news, I'm skeptical of any good news about the economy... I'm about to embark on a life with a lot of traveling in my future and of course I just heard about airline prices not getting any lower for at least the next decade, due to lack of competition. And gas prices are at an all time high. I just can't get a break.
Well at least you can say you have been active in fighting for what you believe in. Sometimes it does feel like no matter what you do it's like you're banging your head against the wall, and that there is no where you can go in this world and get away from all you mentioned apart from moving to mars... But you gotta try and stay on the sunny side and think about all the great adventures you are about to embark on.
