"here it is, your moment of zen"

wow. it is amazing how fast time flies when routine consumes your life. i've turned 27, gone to an octoberfest, survived my one year anniversary, had bfs come visit me in Beantown, and watched the Sox implode in the playoffs...

The Election looms ahead, and it remains a decision to vote between a giant douche and a turd sandwich... partisan politics aside, neither one will fulfill a single campaign promise. guaranteed. the first term will be spent a) doing damage control and b) preparing for re-election. tax cuts? alternative fuel sources? healthcare? withdrawing troops from Iraq? not. gonna. happen. when will Americans learn that politicians are not to be trusted? we bitch and moan about issues, yet do we realize that not only do they speak out of both sides of their mouths, but their hands are so deep into the pockets of special interests and they owe so many people, that actual progress will never happen. never. not as long as politicians run the government and Americans remain complacent in the status quo. change will only come when we put aside our addiction to luxury, and learn to live like the rest of world. we need to climb down from our ivory tower and earn some street cred, babies.


so, for now, I raise a glass and take a deep draught while i can still afford it...
