Sorry for the rambling. I'm a little drunk and a lot of upset over today's events. If you don't like this "diary", I don't blame you. But I have to get this off my chest.

I always believed in America. I always believed there was always a better day ahead of us. My dad came form nothing and built a good life for his family. He made sure I was educated. I was able to get a good job to provide for my family. Because of that, I thought the American Dream was real. No matter how dark things got, no matter how evil the temporary occupants of power, there was a better day ahead.

Now, the public sector workers of Ohio and Wisconsin are stripped of their right. Gabby Giffords struggles every day to return to a normal life while the Right was able to get off the hook for inspiring a madman to pull the trigger. Muslim=Americans are now the subject of House hearings just like the Japanese and Germans during the two World Wars. A New York Times reporter has thus far gotten away with almost placing the blame on an 11-year old girl for being gang raped. No, our best days are not ahead. It's all downhill form here. I'm going to start reading up on the Roman Empire because that's where we are headed.

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.
