Obama will serve the Status Quo

OK, so right now, the media is buzzing with clips of Obama's speech on patriotism. I haven't taken in any more than the clips, but I get the gist of it. He is attempting to raise the standard of debate, to stop people from saying "you're not a patriot" anytime they disagree about what is right for the country. He has a long row to hoe, because our media and frankly our educational system have been dumbing us down politically for decades. But then I get an email with these lists. Behind the cut are the people that Obama is meeting with, in private meetings. What this means to me is that he will continue the system of corporate welfare at the expense of the taxpayer. How very patriotic of him.

My Garden

is a wreck. It has gone completely wild. All those plants that I left in there, months ago when nothing was growing fast, have taken off. The one that looked like a carrot plant may be queen anne's lace. The three lettuce plants have gone to seed. Those leaves are very bitter. The lavendar plant is useless there, when there is yards of lavendar along the front of the neighbor's yard. I'm going to pull this one. And kill the queen anne's lace as soon as the flowers open a little more.
