    that to my neighbors and family (estranged)?

    Because they see that as a reason to redouble their efforts because all their worst nightmares are coming true.

    I'm trying to point out that we who are lucid and sober see it as a bust.

    To the paranoid and delusional addled mind, they see yesterday as evidence of an oppressive state-run media campaign that shut them out, and now Fox News and Limbaugh are going to be their go-to heros to fill them in on how to rise up the next time  and get it right.

    That's why Keyes ended with the chant

    "Do not let them tear it down"

    Someone in the crowd mentioned July 4 -

    You really think this is over?

    F**K - I would sleep so much easier if I could just believe that, and go back to being normal again.

    The latest economic news said there is a positive shift in the economy....which will lag six months to a year behind any change in the housing or job market, and therefore the forecast for foreclosures is expected to see a sharp RISE in the next few months to a year, which could start the cycle all over again.

    Or did the librul media just brainwash me....?

    I'm trying hard to be optimistic and think these clowns are all just bluster and they'll go home silently in shame.

    But a lot of people who feel shame decide to take it out on someone else.

    Let's get together again after the Fourth of July and we can measure how the country has come back together again...or not.

    I'd like nothing more to have egg on my face in a few months and see that the country is back on it's feet and rolling and the Republicans are now the most popular cartoons and bobble-head dolls.

    I'd like to be proven wrong about all this, really.

    George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"
