What once mattered...

I would like to list a few things you actually might have cared about five minutes ago.

1. Fred Thompson
2. The Sex and the City Movie
3. Hillary Clinton versus Barack Obama
4. Valerie Plame
5. The Final Episode of the Sopranos

Now...what do you give a shit about right now?

Take a breath.

I actually do still care about Valerie Plame, at least as a subset of "horrible illegal and/or unConstitutional offenses committed by this Administration," which is always on my mind.

The other things on that list . . . nah, never cared, except maybe Clinton/Obama.

As for now, what concerns me?

1. Dangerous, illegal, traitorous actions by this Administration.
2. My health.
3. My work.
4. Finding a time to get some kind of rest.
5. Money.

That the constitution no longer seems to matter.
Repeat that 4 times.

1. Having not insured my car in three years.
2. Having not insured my health in ten years.
3. Finding work for a tech school graduate with gang tattoos on his neck.
4. Finding work for another guy who can't pass a drug screen, but has an adorable two year old daughter and a house in foreclosure.
5. An insulated ruling majority of white people that believe they're doing just fine on minority rights.

I agree with Ian: I still care about Plame. She's the physical incarnation of the "High Crimes and Misdemeanors" (a/k/a "those 16 words") committed by our current administration.

right now: offshore drilling and the petroleum reserve - if oil prices continue to drop we'll be back to guzzling before the election.
