{CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN}

It saddens me to report that the change we could believe in has been replaced with our regularly scheduled program called sit around and wait for something to happen, anything. We were going to tell you to believe in something that might happen if you were willing to believe in what we tell you but instead we replaced it with your favorite show and while you are sitting there can you please pass the remote I might want to change the channel to watching the time pass one of my favorite past times or oh-oh-oh, look, history and its historical allegorical interpretations that have nothing to do with me yet I keep making it have something to do with me because I can look at my own sad history of nothing going on. 

Absurdly though people, when are we going to wake up to the fact that you can see throughout the two hundred some odd history that we have in this country that no politician will ever be able to give you anything that you don't already possess, when are we going to wake up and realize the same thing about the religious zealots, the right wing, the left wing, air force one, the plane that crashed into the Hudson river the other day while trying to plow through the natural migrative course that birds fly in and other such things. 

You can ask me if I have the answer and I will tell you I most certainly don't have the answer for you because you are you, I am me and we are we. This brings me back to a memory of when I used to shit in my diaper and my mom used to change it for me, I was so helpless and fragile like most babies but we are all grown up now kids, when are we going to stop shitting ourselves and waiting for someone else to change our pants for us?
