I'm depressed and have reason to be.
1. No Pats game this weekend. I have to wait until next weekend to see if all my hopes are crushed. Or wait 2 more weekends to... to... (what can I say as a karma helper?)
2. I'm not a millionaire yet though I ate black eyed peas on New Years Day. Maybe it just takes awhile to kick in.
3. The Presidential campaign season is seriously on.
Now, as regards politics... I've protested I've voted and whenever I have to I pay taxes. I say this so you know I care... but. When I hear a Republican (Ron Paul) talk about "corporate fascism".... And David Cay Johnston talk about his new book on corporate subsidies... And a deafening SILENCE on universal health care (read: influence of drug and health care companies)...
(Sorry, but with only Kuscinich talking about universal health care that kinda equals silence.)
I'm so glad I don't own a T.V. I'd put a bag on it right now. Oh, and...
4. Baby its cold outside.
