A New Day Begins

It is a new day. Obama now gets it that he has to fix this broken culture and dying Nation. The Fiscal Cliff is just the start. The slaughter of twenty innocent children and six of their teachers in Newtown has even the NRA coming to terms with reality. The Tea Party lunatics, the Right Wing Republican morons, and now even the pro-gun nuts are on the run. This is our time, and we well take it. The Rich will be taxed, the Corporations and guns will be regulated, the environment will be protected; we are going to fix this. It still won’t be easy to be poor, put it will suck less. It still will be difficult to stay in the Middle Class, but it will be possible. This is all going to get fixed, and we all will at least have a chance at survival. We came close in the late 1960s and now we have a second chance to change the world for the better.

If not, take your head out of the sand or your ass; reject their self-serving lies and the Capitalist myth of upward mobility; and vote for the people who will try to—and may actually—help you, or at least give a damn about you and not screw you mercilessly, [the Democrats]. Elect Democrats at every level of government; not for me, for your planet and species; and you and your descendants…
