I don' know if president-elect Obama is really as amazing as he sounds, or if he just has a great speech writer, but DAMN.
To hear the president of the US talk about investing in alternative energy and transparency in spending and accounting is just knocking my socks off. I know there is a long way to go in this country, but I do feel a sense of hope in this moment that perhaps the same values I uphold might just make it to the forefront of peoples minds.... maybe because of a little pain, but not because of the great suffering that is possible if we continue on in the way we have been.

Wishing you all prosperity, ease, and honesty in the year of the Earth Ox

i know. he's a damn good speaker. what thrilled me was hearing him say "if you disagree with me, that means i'm going to listen more closely to you to make sure i understand what you're saying." awesome.
