phew! i was wrong [Nov. 5th, 2008|11:37 am]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |the lemonheads - mrs robinson]

i was born in the year martin luther king was killed

men landed on the moon
the berlin wall came down
9/11 happened
and i think today is possibly a moment in history equally pivotal.

after 9/11 america had the goodwill of the world
which george bush managed to piss very rapidly up the wall.

7 years later and america has that goodwill again
i believe barak obama is not going to make the same mistake.

Ah.... let's not be too hasty in saying America has anybody's goodwill again. Obama represents a change yes but he needs to do something before that goodwill is truly and properly restored. If he calls off that idiotic war and brings everybody home he'll make his point clear and the world will breathe a little easier.

This is really significant and it may be uphill from here. I'm optimistic but you should know that the opinion of America is so low around the world that this election by itself is not nearly enough to redeem 8 years of swine, lies, betrayal, corruption, greed, terror and arrogance.

of course i am being a little starry eyed.
the man's inherited a disaster area after all.
time for the information overload i guess...
but i somehow feel in safer hands.

ps. i'd give john mccain a job if he wanted one.
