Looks like eight years of Republican rule/fuckery is over.Â Out country finally has a president who is not a rich white male.Â That’s great news.Â I doubted we’d ever see such progress in my lifetime.Â Of course, that’s because I have no faith in people, who are really the worst form of life on this planet, even worse than dogs or teens.
I remain cautiously optimistic that change is on the way.Â Obama has a DemocraticÂ Congressional majority, and it’s entirely possible that the Congressional Democrats will finally grow a pair and attempt to accomplish something.
On the other hand…
It looks like California, Florida, and Arizona have banned gay marriage. Arkansas has banned gays from adopting.Â There’s a long way to go, because it appears we’re still a nationÂ that only “says” all men are created equal.Â It sickens me more than a little, just like it sickened me when my vote didn’t stop a similar ban from passing in Texas last election.
So there’s that.Â I’m going to go back to being optimistic now.
