fear in action

so i've stopped talking politics with my family 6 months ago. they are
the classic example of the 'but the republicans are evil and we'll all
die if you don't vote straight blue'. tonight i was dragged into a
fight where my concientious voting objector position was compared to
the nazis, at least it was until i pionted out that the line being
used (the only thing needed for evil to flourish is for good men to do
nothing) is generally used when describing good germans. this whole
awful fight was because i don't appreciate how hard dems have worked
but they are thwarted at every turn by republicans. i am just not
grateful enough and can't do the simple math that 59 or 57 isn't a
the entire time this fight is going on the cnn news scroll reads
'white house comes out against moratorium on foreclosures'. but
everything is the republicans' fault. uh huh.

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
