Original message Guys, I gotta say- I am truly depressed right now.
While I love DU and have depended on you guys for nearly a decade now,
as far as some voices of sanity in the wilderness- some of what I have been
reading just makes me so sad. And hopeless.
I no longer entertain the notion that we can salvage this country-
I think it is clear to some that the global elite have won, often with
the complacency of some our citizens, who simply are ignorant, not necessarily stupid,
that continue to vote against our best interest.
It is appalling to me that people like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann
can even be considered as viable candidates for the Presidency of the United States of America.
I mean, why not just elect Kim Kardashian and get it over with?
The rich have neared completion of completely separating and isolating themselves
from the rest of us. The middle class is a sick and dying bird, pushed out of its shabby
nest by those who will not miss its song in the morning.
As a matter of fact- they can't wait to cut down the tree where the nest was built
for their personal gain.
Sorry to be so dark, but I don't see any of it getting better in our
And I am truly depressed.
