All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.

I Got Nothing

Today is one of those days; it's been one of those weeks really. Nothing to say. Disgust and anger at the people we have chosen to represent us in the House and Senate. Disgust about the media. Disgust about the talking heads who recite and do not even think of the vapidity of what they are saying--even though they know it's a pack of lies.

Disgust at the pathetic choice we are given for arguably the most important job on the planet. Oh sure, there is a lesser of two evils--a very clear one; a no-brainer. But a no brainer to some is more like Newton discovering the Calculus for others.

I may need a few days, or weeks away from the fray. Work is intense. Life is intense. People want me dead because I was born in America--or even because I was born in America and happen to think it is a place worth preserving. As in, the experiment. As in Paul Revere is riding today--right now, but nobody seems to be listening.

Is the American Revolution dead? Have we finally capitulated to our lesser natures and given up on the dreams of Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson, and Adams? Have we forgotten the blood that was shed to get us here, to this magnificent place we are conspiring to toss into the dustbin of history?

I guess we will find out.
