A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Thursday, once again. Time does fly. So on goes the thinking cap and out come the thoughts.
I think President Obama has a tremendous task before him and I believe he is quite possibly the best choice we could have made for the job. I will not be happy with every thing he does, but I have never been happy with every thing anybody has done. I expect to see Guantanamo Bay closed and America finding its soul once again. I fervently hope that Congress investigates the Bush administration and charges them with war crimes. I hope we can join the rest of western civilization and finally provide universal health care. Being well is not a privilege reserved for those who can afford it and it is obscene for people to make billions of dollars on the backs of people's health. I think that Congress needs to deal with American corporations which put their official headquarters in a closet in the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. I also think there needs to be a financial repercussion for shipping every job possible to a third world country. I think that Congress needs to hold the financial institutions accountable for the 350 billion dollars of taxpayer money that disappeared like smoke in the wind. I believe the welfare of the people needs to be placed above the welfare of business. We cannot allow Wall Street to determine Main Street. Wall Street needs to once again be a reflection of Main Street.
I think Gracie is doing better, finally, but I will know more after her Dr appointment today. I know she has caused us great stress.
I think the country will start to move forward again, as I believe how we feel effects how we act. We have collectively felt as if we had a jackboot firmly placed on the back of our necks.
I've been thinking that, other than Obama becoming President, the year 2009 has not started well for me personally. So, I think it must be time for it to get better. That would be nice!
I think that is enough thinks for now.
