President Elect Barack Hussein Obama has a new web site called OBAMAsChange.gov where he asks for our ideas. Perhaps if we took the time to write concise lists of what we favor in a format of
1.Pigs provided with wings
2.Free nachos for all etc
with a small argument for our points it will be easy for the Obama administration to have a compilation of issues that matter to us.
I think that the internet allows us to contribute to what follows an election in a unique way if we use it rationally. I have heard that there are many who read blogs and take them seriously as an indication of what the electorate is thinking.
Well Okay, maybe the progressives. I have visited conservative sites and there isn't much constructive thought going on. But this is a wonderful tool and we should make a concerted effort to use it. Ok maybe it is the mathematician in me but I always think rationality is the best course. Sometimes I am shocked by the stunning irrationality of many.
I have found myself once again wanting to read up on issues and think about problems and solutions in a way I have not been inspired to do for nearly 30 years. So now I keep a notepad at my computer to note what I want to research. I am 56 year old baby boomer who is on fire like I was in the heyday of the 60s. YES WE CAN!
PS Don't you just love saying President Elect Barack HUSSEIN Obama. I laugh with joy every time I say or write it
