grow up, america.
honestly? i am pissed that we are even bandying about these elementary ass issues that every other industrialized, western nation has done something about or acted like fking GROWN UPS on...on paper at the very least.
we need to get on the ball, and fast. this is really not helping anybody. we're so far behind, it's not even funny.
one of the most pointed things that obama did was speak about looking 10 years down the line.
that's the energy we need, not a symbol of the breed that's dying in state and parliment houses all over the world.
thinking only about the next 4-8 years and then expecting that to garner some kind of change is ridiculous, at best.
get a grip.
vote for whoever you want to--we're not gonna get outta this mess in less than a decade (or more) anyway. may even take a generation. and i'm sure you can already guess where i'm leaning.
but we need to take a good, long look at what we're doing and what we're turning into. and if we wanna make it better, we need to start thinking like big boys and girls, not infantile automatons fueled on xenophobic fear, soundbites, and walmart goods.
playtime's over, y'all.
