  I feel as though I must share some joyous news with all my fellow Kossacks. The other night my girlfriend informed me that she and I have finally succeeded in getting pregnant, and our first baby is due to arrive sometime in July. It is to early to determine what sex the baby is, because she is only about a month along, but it's an exciting time in our house nonetheless.

  On the other hand, I'm quite nervous, and unsure about bringing a new life into the world at this time (wars, economy, etc...), but I'm also extremely optomistic about all of it at the same time...

  You see, my child will not have to know first hand, what it is like to live in a country that is being governed by a dim-witted rube, a senile old man, or a lunatic hockey-mom.

  The first four years (hopefully the first eight years) of my child's existence will begin in the same time that we begin writing a new chapter of American history. He, or she, will grow in an time where our leader uses insightful thought, intense debate, and calm, careful deliberation.

  I will be there to answer questions, and to teach tolerance, acceptence, and love. I will also instill in my child that it is good to be an individual, while still being part of a community. He, or she, will be well informed about the lunatic wingers and their tactics of hate, fear, and division, and if/when, he, or she, decides to get into politics, and political discourse, I will guide him (her) here, to jump into the deep water feet first.

  I can't wait til my very own roley-poley, chubby-cheeked, shit-machine gets here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
