Obama is now our President. So good with his speech, so honest in his appearance. You could get absolutely caught up in it if you cared to do it. But I watched BRAVEHEART this week and it tells me that no matter what Obama wants to do, the entrenched power structure will remain in place and doing it's thing. Just like the Nobles did in Scotland when Wallace begged for their help to fight Edward Longshanks. They did what was good for them and to hell with Scotland. Nancy Pelosi is already marking her turf against Obama. Obama is idealistic and Pelosi is a party hack with no scruples what so ever.
But it was a good clean day and I liked the feeling. The pundits were not cutting down the new guy and everyone was happy and hopeful. Tomorrow will be the day the knives come back out.
The stock market puked for Obama's inauguration. Welcome to reality, Barack. The world economy is collapsing and there is noting you can do about it. It is a cruel jest that the Bushites have left for you to reap. You want America to roll up it's sleeves and get to work and there is 10 million unemployed out there. I am sure they would like to get back to making decent money again. I listened to Big John Lipscomb again last night and he was talking about the code words the speakers all know to use to get the crowd going their way. And that is true. The politicians are told by some very expensive advisors what to say and how to say it and it brings the cheers the politicians want to hear.
One thing I can take a lot of satisfaction from is the fact that Bush and Cheney are gone. Praise God they are gone. This administration could be worse but at this moment it is hard to figure out how.
I have not written in a few days and now I write today. I hope to start feeling some sort of satisfaction from all this work. It gets to be lonely at times. So take care and try your best to stay alive.
