the trains won’t run on time

Another four years of Imperial wars
Another four years of Fatherland Security
Another four years of Ashcroft’s hands down your pants
Another four years of ignorant theocracy
Another four years of astounding deficit spending
Another four years of energy policy run by oilmen
Another four years of legalized torture
Another four years of hate from the rest of the world
Another four years of the cult of ignorance, the war on intellectuals
Another four years of government sponsored hate

Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell and George the Third… …may profit by their example. If this be treason, make the most of it. — Patrick Henry

    Don’t forget the likely four upcoming appointments to the Supreme Court.
    This nation is f*cked for the rest of my life, and I’m sick as hell over what I can do about it. Is it time to give up on trying to make a difference? Is it time to go into self-preservation mode for the next 40 years? Or is it time to simply decide that this brave new world is not one that I cannot live in?
    This gay man with a computer degree perfect for the “special skills draft” does not feel safe at all in America, and I hope beyond reason that some enlightened nation will open its doors to the new refugees from the USA.

      With the Supreme Court situation being an immediate concern, I’m strongly considering self-preservation mode, myself. As much as I hate to be chased out of my country by bigots, my partner and I have already had preliminary discussions about Canada and Europe. We’ll see. I’m far too upset to be making decisions tonight.
