Explain further, I don't understand. Do you mean going from the government handing out money to countries in need to the individuals donating time and money to other countries in need? Is that what you mean?

Nono....I mean the people creating the need for change.... I mentioned the civil rights movement and MLK for an example.

It is usually after ones government grossly falls short that social movements are born....get what I mean?

I think that something has to happen
were nearing a Rome situation where were just too big and too bullyish and were gonna fall
I had the idea that america would do better to split up into three or two countries that were goverened differently since america is obviously deeply divided already
As of now we are practically in civil war mode amongst ourselves because of opinions on leadership and laws

I agree Tara...I think we are definetly on the verge of a huge social movement. And it has little to do with politics as much as it does the people.

The government only has as much power as we allow it...

Are you ready to talk about what's grumping you? Or you would rather talk about the new album arriving in just a few short weeks?

I have a WB Yeats poem stuck in my head

I need to type it to soothe my nerves

There was a man whom sorrow named his friend,
and he, of his high comrade sorrow dreaming,
went walking with slow steps along the gleaming
and humming sands, where windy surges wend:
and he called loudly to the stars to bend
from their pale thrones and comfort him, but they
among themselves laugh on and sing alway:

and then the man whom sorrow named his friend
cried out,
Dim sea, hear my most piteous story!
the sea wept on and cried her old cry still
rolling along in dreams from hill to hill
he fled the persecution of her glory.

and in a far off, gentle valley stopping,
cried all his story to the dewdrops glistening,
but naught they heard, for they are always listening
the dewdrops, to the sound of their own dropping.

and then the man whom sorrow named his friend,
sought once again the shore,
and found a shell.
and thought "I will my heavy story tell
till my own words re schoing shall send
their sadness through a hollow, pearly heart
and my own tale again for me shall sing
and my own whispering words be comfoteing
and lo my ancient burden may depart

then he sang softly night the pearly rim
but the sad dweller by the sea always lone
changed all he sang to inarticulate moan
among her wildering whirls,
forgetting him



okay, sorry if that was really long but i like it

not you. I was referring to the "heavy" topic that Stars introduced. I mean it's all our bar, so anything goes. I would just rather not get into politics here. But, everyone can bring up what's most on the heart as well.

Sorry Stars, just not in the mood for disagreeing right now.
