So, another crap year flushed down the sewers of history. 2k5, I'm not going to miss you. Here's looking towards the future with the hope that things can only get better.

Edit: Oh, ha-fucking-ha, fate! My mom called this morning to tell me that my grandma died sometime yesterday. Shit end to a shit year, indeed.

I'd say I hate to be the cynic, except that I don't hate it, it's just what I am.

There's always room for worse, and with the yahoo's that are in power now I'd say there's a whole mess of room for worse.

Cheap oil is a thing of the past.
Peak oil is approaching at break neck speed.
Drilling for Oil in ANWR is still a political possibility.
The President has fallen off the wagon, is a sociopath, and is suffering from pre-senile dementia. This is the man who makes decisions on whether to go to war.
Congress is utterly impotent and corrupt.
The Republicans are teh 3v1l, the Democrats are spineless.
The American People are more concerned with abortion, gay marriage, evolution vs. creationism, and "family values"; than they are with the approach of Peak Oil, the fantastic 8 trillion dollar federal debt, health care, and civil rights.

I only see a downward spiral.

Point me in the direction of a few cc's of pure PCP, a mess of guns, and a load of people that need killing. I'd like to go out in a blaze of glory, please.
