What's your agenda? Everyone's got one, most folks have several agendas, intertwined into one another, creating the most fabulous patterns. It's hard to separate from these patterns, to see that they're just patterns, mine that is, and that the next door neighbor's patterns are every bit as legitimate.
I saw in the Washington Post this morning that the Kennedys are endorsing Obama, subsequent to his big win in S. Carolina. Okay. Obama is really a good guy. But I keep asking myself, do the Kennedys (and others) really believe Mr. Obama can pull this country out of its tailspin? Wow. Does Mr. Obama?
I should never say never, but ... well ... one of my agendas is based on my desire to learn how to live gracefully in an empire once powerful that's now on its last legs, staggering around like a dry drunk. The United States of America? Pathetic! That's why I like Hillary for president. She's so much more realistic about what can and can't be done.
Can't bear to watch Mr. Bush anymore, or listen to his voice, but I heard this morning that his State of the Union address was all about how everything is going well, we're winning in Iraq and the economy will bounce back. Talk about agendas! Yikes ... or in his case is it just denial?
It's a dark, gray and rainy day in Washington DC. In spite of the flagging empire, contradictory agendas, and an emperor with no clothes, the birds are chirping, people are going to work, you know, the usual. Jake is snoring peacefully while I drink tea and think about agendas. Life goes on. Why not?
