Let's now stop this silly pic-posting. It borderlines trolling.

Yes I'm happy to see that, I did vote for him, but I just hope he can make some corrections this time around. I'm hoping to see the country come together, and the world come together without the need of another 9/11.

I'm not sure if any man can make that happen, but best of luck that it does.

yes that graph also shows that the surplus was shrinking under the final years of clinton, and that the big drop didn't happen until after the largest terrorist attack in our nation's history. oh well...

and as for the first picture, i could post thousands of pics of torture done by saddam hussein & al qaeda, but this is not hte place for that.

I agree that it's better this way (getting married at a young age I think is usually a bad idea), but it doesn't necessarily prove anything about the moral character and maturity of blue-staters.

it may mean that they value marriage enough to wait until they are ready. they value marriage, and they likewise value gay relationships. the two are not mutually exclusive, as the Christian right would have us believe.

in fact, gays getting married is actually conservative. what could be more conservative than enabling people with the tools to live a life of monogamy and commitment?

Tell me about it. You should have seen it at school today... More people were talking about the US elections than they did about the Canadian elections a little while ago.

And do you know what? Everyone, except for a few (especially those who had parents serving in Iraq), was in a state of disbelief.

They said it accurately on CTV - if the rest of the world had the opportunity to vote, Bush wouldn't be there.

But the rest of the world does not have a vote, and judging by the rest of the world (embodied by the UN) that is a very good thing.

i just can't look at kerry anymore. pictures, video, anything. it just breaks my heart too much. i knew i liked him, i didn't realize that i had become THIS attached to the man, the person, not just the candidate. all day long i've been getting teary eyed, with a lump in my throat, my voice cracking, and the same is with my fellow kerry supporters at school. even the guys cried. i'm so hurt.

Well I'd take Kofi Annan over Bush any day.

You misinterpreted my post. It´s not about what side you ´re on, Headache Congratulations to American democracy.

It´s not about trolling either. Forgive me, mods. I know it´s a tuff post. But sometimes pictures speak louder than words. And life is much tuffer.

It´s about smiling and waving at the victory of your leader, who I called a killer. Just want to remind you, Headache, that indeed, Vietnam survived America - not the other way ´round. I want to remind you there´s always two sides of the story. I am your conscience speaking up.

After all, I´m speaking about Christian values, not about Saddam´s torturing.

You want an up2date picture? Here you go. This is what your re-elected President is responsible for. It´s not about Bush or Kerry, or which side you´re on.

This is about pain. Just about the reality of pain.




Go ahead dance!










Meanwhile, I will go to read the Bible.

John Edwards, if you're reading this (which i doubt but humor me), i IMPLORE you to run. Hillary would spell disaster for our party. Obama is too soon. We need YOU. I love you more than for your looks, but because of your faith and hope in America. My wounds are so deep, I need you to close them.

A lil humor for my downhearted Dems.

James Noon wrote the following on his blog:

The five stages of grief. Let's get this over with quickly.

Denial: We've still got those provisional ballots in Ohio to count. Absentee ballots all over the place. The electors could decide not to give their votes to Bush. It's not over yet.

Anger: FUCK YOU, America. FUCK. YOU. You like 100,000 dead Iraqi civilians because of your false war? 8000 wounded American soldiers and 1100 dead in Iraq because of imperial hubris and incompetent post-war planning not enough to quench your desire for misguided vengeance? Great, well you're gonna have a lot more blood on your hands. Don't want gay marriage? Fanfuckintastic. You got your way. A lot of good it's gonna do when you can't afford your prescription drugs, your unemployment benefits have run out, and your kid's fucking school is overcrowded. And don't think for a fucking second that "tort reform" is going to make a difference, because it won't. Global warming is real, motherfuckers, and you just sealed the deal. Balanced budget? Ha. And when the Bush Supreme Court makes abortion illegal again, and thousands of women are dying from unsafe back-alley abortions, that's on you, America. Thought the world just hated our government? Fuck that. The world hates you the people now, America, you stupid, weak, arrogant, ignorant sons of bitches. In thirty years, when people look back at what happened on November 2nd, 2004, and ask what people were thinking, all I'll have to say is, "Fuck you."

Bargaining: Please, America, think about what you've just done. We'll give you your tort reform and your partially privatized social security. We'll quit bitching about how the 2000 election was stolen. Take some school vouchers, give it another try, maybe it'll actually work this time around. More handguns for everyone. We'll lock away Michael Moore. Just please, please, please don't let Bush back in office for four more years.

Depression: Fuck. I mean, just, fuck. I can't take another four years of this. This is horrible. Disgusting. I just want to curl up in the fetal position and lie in the dark until it's over. Where's my tub of cake icing?

Acceptance: Bring it on, motherfuckers! Republicans control the House, the Senate, the White House, and Bush is gonna have three or four Supreme Court justices to appoint. Bring on the radical rightwing conservative agenda. No more blaming Clinton or the Democrats. It's on the Republicans' heads now. And on the bright side...umm...I'll get back to you on that one.
