Fuck You, 2004; Hello 2005…

New Year’s Day.
Football on the television, a raging head cold…

Welcome, 2005.

2004 was a brutal year personally, politically, and in just about every way… It was a hard year. It was a year that ended with one of the worst disasters in history.

Never let it be said that this year did not kiss the Earth on its way out…

2005 can go either way.-

There are a lot of risks being taken as we go into the New Year on just about every level imaginable.

Fuck it.

Who knows what will happen? What do I know?

I do know this… This year will be hard.

HARD.

Our government? Ack… I go all Bill the Cat and I will choke a hairball at the mention.

The Media? As a Blogger, I need them… PLEASE?!? Please do better. Please quit hurting us.

Bloggers? Just link me…

Hot single women in Portland, OR? Just date me… Or throw me a lay before I go really strange…

My Ex? Just stay sane…

My Children? Just do not hurt each other…

My websites? Just do better… Please quit hurting us… Just link me… Just date me… Fuck me… Just stay sane and let’s not hurt each other…

A couple of notes for the New Year…

I added the counter yesterday. Please do not think that the nearly forty visitors noted there represent all of my readers since November.

And thank you to the 40 or so visitors who have wandered by in the last 24 hours or so…

Continuing on… I do not have much time, but I would like to personalize this blog more… I am looking at some ideas on the coding, though I hate it. I am more of a writer than a developer. Eventually, though, I would like to combine my Democracy In Distress homepage with my blog page, if it is possible…

Also, I will fix the flags on the Café Press merchandise, and I will design better items to sell there.

In the beginning, I imagined this site as primarily being about promoting the upside-down flag in distress as a symbol of protest. Instead, it turned into a political blog…

I spin a little on each side of that… What I have always wanted to see here is a forum for discussion leading to real political action on these challenges to our democracy.

We need to empower the left…
We need to keep the right in check…

Democracy.
That is what it is called.

And it is in distress.
It is in danger.

It is the Bush Administration.
It is the opposition.

And most of the blame lies with the traditional media.

Working together, we can fix this.
Working together, we can restore the America that we were all bred to love.
