I hope Nancy Pelosi becomes speaker of the house and starts spreading her 'san francisco values' across the political arena. wouldn't it be nice to see compassion and acceptance spread to other parts of the country so that we could then watch civilization
it's weird isn't it. you'd expect that we would barely be able to hold a civil conversation here, considering all the things we do to tempt the downfall of All That We Hold Dear.
I was mentioning the other day in IM conversation with lisagail that if we got into a confrontation with north korea with the republicans in control of our side, they'd probably be willing to sacrifice san francisco without even firing back. I mean look at new orleans. what is the federal government doing in response there, even now? I'm hoping with a democratic congress someone will convince the administration that you don't treat nuclear-weapons weilding countries as children exhibiting 'bad behavior.' you talk to them. even if they are satan's minions. I'm not kidding about letting san francisco go. I bet it's been mentioned in the white house, even if just as a 'joke.'
seattle of course is closer and probably in worse peril, but I'd bet the administration really wouldn't lament the loss of any urban west coast area. well maybe they'd get a little teary-eyed about springfield oregon, but only for a minute. then they'd remember they'd gotten rid of eugene in the deal and brighten up.
but anyway three cheears for the country finally coming to its senses. too bad it's six years too late.
