First off, I'd like to apologize if any find this post to be of little value. I'm new to this forum and I haven't really figured out the ropes yet.
I couldn't bring myself to watch Bush speak last night. In my own mind, I have created such a visceral loathing for the man, his vacuous expressions, his ugly smirk, his low-brow, down-home pedagogery, that the sight and sound of him comes nigh to making me physically ill.
It was a grim night. War is at hand. And it seems like all the voices, all the millions of people that have taken to the streets in protest, have passed unnoticed.
The world is fundamentally changing. This country has been seized by corporate interests. And we are now beginning to reap the bitter fruits of our ignorance and complacence.
One lesson, dearly learned, is that there is no satisfaction or vindication in being right....not when the price is this high.
We are not defeated...not yet. But it is a very dark hour, indeed.
