A Thought (or two)

Well after being told that a few people like my writing, I have also had an experience that I had only heard about. Writers Block. For a long time now, I haven't been able to express myself via written word. This feeble attempt is my first attempt in a long time, for good or bad. Here goes...

Having voted for Barak Obama, I THOUGHT I was actually going to see things change, (maybe too soon on my end), but, with the choosing of the VP, all the way down to the cabinet positions. It's Washington as usual
But so far (I have to give President Obama the benefit of the doubt) all I have seen are the OLD, TIRED, Professional politicians that go through the revolving door. Hillary as Sec of State? might as well appoint Bill too. There is a LOT of baggage there alone. Didn't those people just finished a particularily nasty primary race? Never once heard Bill actually come out and truly endorse our new President, ever.

I'd say more, but I had to sell my soapbox to pay my rent.

Speaking of, all of these bailouts, from corporations through home owners, not once have I heard a peep about some of our brothers and sisters who can't now or ever will actually own a house. Of course those people are not really equal, they don't /can't contribute to campaigns. There are a LOT of people a paycheck away from being homeless, who have no say in things, but society doesn't see or hear them anyway, so most don't even bother. I've been there, invisible even at 450+ lbs.

I can still hope for things to CHANGE, and dreams are free...

    I like your way of thinking.

    I'm sorry, Obama is not changing anything... hope I'm wrong...
