Concerning the Upcoming Election
So. Now that Rick Santorum's out of the race, Mitt Romney has become the inevitable. The Republicans will go through the Five Stages of Grief, the fifth stage -acceptance- is the main stage in Tampa. Romney is the culmination of everything that's wrong with politicians. He's mendacious, smug, well-connected, and out-of-touch with his social lessers. Every politician has at least one of these traits, Romney has all of them.
We cannot judge this man by his words, only by his deeds. Mitt Romney has bolstered the rich, ignored the poor, and introduced the half-measure that is the Individual Mandate. There is no doubt, were he President, he would amass more power, as did every President in the history of the Republic. In terms of policy, Mitt Romney has only one difference with Obama worth mentioning: as a Republican, he is openly hostile to reproductive freedom, unless he was lying about that, too.
Yet the President is not an Emperor, there are others who hold authority. I don't know what

I hope I can get a job
I hope I can get the cash
I hope I can fix my car
I hope I don't seem too desperate
I hope I can find you after school
I hope I don't need to have a drink
I hope I can ask you out
I hope I don't seem too desperate.
I hope I don't nick myself shaving
I hope I have enough hair gel
I hope I don't make a fool of myself
I hope I don't seem too desperate
I hope you felt safe in the car (Buckle up!)
I hope you don't try and pay for the tickets
I hope you like the movie
I hope I don't seem too desperate.
I hope that the theater is dark
I hope that you don't mind if I talk
I hope you want to see me again
I hope I don't seem too desperate.
I wouldn't want to look desperate.

What the Founding Fathers Wanted
Citizens of the United States respect our Political Ancestors, the
“Founding Fathers”, more than the citizens of any other nation on
Earth. Most nations respect their major historical figures, but we
practically worship ours. We name our streets, social clubs
and companies after them, even putting their images on our currency
-as a reminder of what ideals we value. Thorough study of their deeds
tells us much of the origins of our nation, but they should not be
Iron Rails upon which we should set our future.
The Founding Fathers -or “Founders” if you’re into that
whole brevity thing-  are a hard to pin down group -there were
over 100 men we could call “Founding Fathers” -participants in
the Continental Congress, the American Revolution, and Constitutional
Convention. Many were lawyers, many were soldiers, all were white,
male, and of some means. There

It wasn’t my fault.
I was sitting on an iron throne when I set down my Iron Crown
I saw you dancing overhead.
So I stole you away.
You shouldn’t have danced so well.
Then the ground matched my crown.
And your mother came shrieking for me
It was cold on the surface, almost as cold as down here.
But you ate a pomegranate- tasted from my garden.
And now you have to stay with me, at least every once in a while.
Shed that wrap, put on the shroud
And make my hell a heaven.

Book Bites
Benjamin Franklin Carr was a famed Chemistry Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, until the day he became the world's most famous book publisher.
Carr's father was a manufacturer of coffee makers.  "Carr" emblazoned the front of commercial coffee makers in diners throughout the Brick City, and also sold very well around the shore of Lake Ontario.  Carr's grandfather was a tinker, plying his trade in the streets of Rochester, his cart filled with pots, pans and solder pulled by the same Clydesdale he led out of Alabama in 1924.  By the time Benjamin took an internship for Du Pont Chemicals, The family name was respected throughout Onondaga County.
     Ben Carr enjoyed his career at RIT for many years, but when he turned forty-eight years old, he had to endure the indignity all men face if they live long enough- a mid-life crisis.  Rather than cheat on his wife, or purchase a magnificent sports car, Carr decided

It's the first day of spring, the Equinox! It's also the first day of the year in the traditional persian calender, if I'm not mistaken. Equal parts day and night. Too bad it's 35 degrees outside right now. Not so much fun.

I keep putting off dA doings, for fear of ridicule. I'll get to it eventually.
