    I don't expect a lot of major changes in my life and those of people I know. I am hoping that maybe this will keep it from getting much, much worse for people like me and most Americans. Maybe the opposite will happen. There's really no way to know.

    I do know I was not happy with the direction the country has been going and at the very least, it's nice to send a message to the powers that be (whomever they may actually be) that what they have been doing is not okay.

    And call me a racist if you like, but it's about time we had something other than a rich white guy in office. Long past time. I'm proud of my country for finally getting here. It won't change real life a lot, but it's a symbolic victory for African Americans and I think that's worth something. I feel fortunate to have lived to see it.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    That's not really racist. You'd have to say something like "You should have voted for ______ because of your race." No one says things like that these days. You're fine.

    No, I haven't seen you rant, I've been in and out a lot here lately and mostly skimming.

    If you've been saying this stuff before, good.

    Obama wants to give the Federal Reserve more power. I heard him say this in a speech a few weeks ago.
    Should be interesting.

    At least I can sleep tonight knowing that I won't wake up and find Sarah Palin president sometime during the next four years. *shudder*

    What upsets me is that if I'm forced to think of Obama and Star Wars concurrently, I think of Jabba the Hutt.
