    I look at it this way - hope for the best, prepare for the worst and you will never be surprised by what actually happens.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I am still optimistic that things will get a little better.
    I was until I read the "pledge" thingy bull. It's CWA all over again, except it's unbelievably vague. I'm glad that many of the bad Democrats are going to be gone, but only about a 1/4 of the Republican's that will win are actually cuts of a different cloth that got us the bailouts, NCLB, and doubled medicare benefits. So I guess I'll try to be a little optimistic that maybe someone has learned something over the last 10 years even though my better judgement says not to.
