    like that in front of my kids.  She's a republican, but hates government on general principles and thinks "all politicians suck".

    I told her that if my kids grow up with that shitty attitude, then what's the poiint in even being involved?  Why even try?  We might as well all slit our writsts now and call it a day.

      I hope you are not happy that the Obama justice department charged DeChristopher a month after the auction that he disrupted was ruled illegal.  I hope you are not pleased that Bradley Manning is being tortured while the commander in chief does nothing.  I hope you are not pleased that the justice department has done precious little to prosecute the Wall Street criminals that have wrecked our economy.  No one is asking you to slash your wrists or embrace anarchism, but for the sake of your kids you should demand a hell of a lot better than we are getting from either party.
