One man's view of the world, from the top of this great big rock somewhere in the middle of God's Country, with an eye toward freedom....or at least some way to get back down without goin' over the edge.

The Theft of Hope (and a little Spare Change)

To my fellow "losers"...some words to ponder.

Yesterday was Obama's day. He deserved it.

Today we wake up, take a good hot shower, get dressed, have breakfast, take our kids to school, go to work...

Today is America's day, just like any other. Today we live our lives, same as we would have done if McCain had won the election.

Yes, there is the spectre of what might be coming down the pike once Obama gets his hands on the wheel for real. And yes, some of it is pretty ominous.

But you know what? That's OK. We got through eight years of the Clintons, and we'll get through this. Our turn will come again, just as it did for Obama's supporters this time around.

In that spirit...let's share a laugh with some people who, I think, truly appreciate our God-given right to believe and vote however we choose, and make complete asses of ourselves in public in the process if we really want to. (Because for what they do, we are talking SERIOUS job security here.)

Here's a hint:

You still think Bush's victory in 2000 was an inside job?

Fool, you ain't seen NUTHIN' yet.

MAN, I love this country.

Thanks, Cap'n Ed. We needed that.
