X-Ray Spex - Oh Bondage Up Yours!

On warm summer days when I'm feeling like a cheeky monkey I blare this song in my car with the windows down while driving around my conservative hometown's downtown area and assault the yuppies during their alfresco lunch.

Elation, then reality

I was practically glued to the election results Tuesday night, more than any other presidential election in my time. Granted I was at work and had to take breaks to actually get my work done. Then I turned the TV back on and McCain was giving his seceeding speach. I couldn't believe it, I practically cried with joy and then kicked myself for not being in Chicago to see in person Obama's acceptance speach. It just made me think of MLK's "I have a dream" speach and JFK's "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" speach.

I immediately came out of my funk and finally had a feeling of hope for our country. A feeling I haven't had in 8 yrs.. A drive to take my meds more regularly so I could stay healthy. A drive to volunteer more. A drive to be the best I could be....

Then I heard on the radio this morning that Randy Gray a white supremacist of Midland marched back and forth on the corner of the busy roads of Eastman and Saginaw rds. in Midland Wednesday dressed in his KKK uniform holding an American flag. I almost cried hearing this. I work less than a block from this corner. The police were called but I guess couldn't do anything since he was just standing there. People driving by were screaming at him. What I don't understand is why this group isn't considered terrorist. Oh and he was also carrying a concealed hand gun, Michigan allows this as long as you have a permit, which he did.
