"Hopey Changey Thing"

I apologize for the recent influx of political content, but Chris and I are both very politically active, and it's hard for us to keep our mouths shut when it comes to certain things.

One of those things is how our President is doing as Commander in Chief. He gets a lot of flack from the right, but it seems they're also busy worrying about what words Palin is making up, or the extremists that are starting to feel at home in the Tea Party.

I'd like to take this opportunity to mention the 100 Accomplishments of Barack Obama so far. Well, this was written in March, so there are likely more than 100 by now, and there are actual valid links in that blog article for you to follow up on, if you're into checking sources like I am. I know the blog format can be off-putting if you're looking for actual fact, but he just compiled a tidy list!

Yes, Mrs Palin, it's working out well, thanks for asking!

Meanwhile, all I can do is urge people to be careful what they listen to on the news and on the radio, what they read in the papers and on the internet. The news media out there is about as useful as a tit on a bull these days, no matter which party you're a part of (or not a part of!). It's your right as an American to have a say in how your country is run! I really do wish more people would pay careful attention to what our government is up to. I know politics can be as boring as watching paint dry, but we're supposed to be the police of this nation. Our politicians can only get away with what we let them get away with.
