i've never gotten involved in politics much at all. in fact, usually, whenever someone starts talking about it, my eyes immediately glaze over and my mind starts humming 'i can't hear you i can't hear you' to the tune of 'mary had a little lamb'.

but this election.... egads. things are getting ugly and horrific. our government, from everything i read, is threatening another terrorist attack on us, if we vote for kerry. that, to me, is a threat. that, to me, makes it sound more like a dictatorship than a democracy. 'do as we tell you, or you will be smited!'

after dealing with all of the unemployment of the last few years, of dealing with dropped sales because people can't afford to go out and shop, of hearing accusation after accusation towards other countries, after seeing country after country either come to hate us, or get in trouble for assisting us...

i just want to shake everyone and scream 'THE LAST FOUR YEARS OBVIOUSLY HAVEN'T WORKED OUT!!!! IT'S TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW!!!!'

i mean, the definition of insanity is 'continuing the same action and expecting a different reaction', isn't it!?

grah.

No kidding. I keep meaning to drop her from my flist but I'm too nice.

I am actually furious at Billy now. He's been such a pandering little wimp since he had his bypass that I can't even look at him. I'd still rather have him there than the PoS that we have now but no one ever listens to me.

i was looking at 'the u.s. presidents for dummies' book at barnes and noble today and reading the lowest rated presidents in u.s. history. one ranking had been done by cnn academics, and the other by a cnn viewer poll (i think it was). james buchanan (the guy that helped us into the civil war) ranked lowest for both, but bill clinton was voted in the top 10 (if i remember correctly) by the academics, but something like 4th from the bottom by the viewer poll.

george bush the first ranked high on both lists, surprisingly.
