Me neither.


I know exactly how you feel. We can't give up hope and we can't give up fighting, in our own little ways we all make a difference and we will get our country back. I truly believe that people will start waking up...I just hope it's sooner rather than later.

...It's the only thing that ever has.

Gig: I was looking for that quote for this post and couldn't find it. Thanks.

...the name's blue girl. It was "the clam" for a brief, brief period. Too funny.

You left out the part about our military's new practice of imprisoning Arab women to coerce their husbands into turning themselves in. (I read this on the front page of my usually rightish-wing local paper). And then we get the government's ridiculous claim that it's the war-protesters that are demoralizing the Army. Keep singing, Bond girl.

I have many problems with this Deepak Copra character and his bromides. Don't give him too much credit for stating the obvious. It was also common in the Eisenhower era to hear this idea of "starting with changing yourself." It was an easy way for the right to deflect the arguments of the slowly emerging left.

If you want to change the world, go right ahead. There's plenty of work to be done. Don't listen to this "change you own mindset" nonsense.

And keep up the good fight, Blue Girl. You'll get through to somebody ... someday!

Yeah, Kevin -- Chopra is pretty shmaltzy -- but I don't mind getting inspiration from all places.

I *really* believe in the idea of "changing your own mindset" -- there are way, way, way too many people who don't think twice about telling you how you should think, how you should live your life, what choices you should make because they *are good for you* -- but are completely oblivious to the fact that they don't live up to the ideals they lay on others so easily.

It's a major pet peeve of mine.

Its the town we live in. My solution is to go where very few people live then it doesn't matter what other people think because you don't see them anyway. This is how humans got along for millions of years: low population density. You and your family have to come up with us this summer.

blue girl

Hi Ann! It's more than just this little town -- it's everywhere!

We WILL go to the deserted island with you guys this summer!
