Okay, I have never been much of a joiner. I have never been much into politics and this year I have Fox Noise to blame as well as the past 8 years of a disastrous manhandling of the country by GWB for getting me all interested in what is going on.

But it´s not fair to be solely motivated by hatred. In fact, I am really liking the hope that I feel for my country and I am not alone. Jessica (high school friend of mine) wrote a great post today that mirrored much of what I feel.

Yanqui Mike has been writing great posts for a while now, and in his tireless efforts managed to organize Democrats Abroad here in Argentina providing me with an outlet for my hatred/hope. Now, thanks to him, I have picked a side.

I also love seeing all the sites that are out there keeping track of the shenanigans of not only fox noise but bullshit in general. Thanks Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Indecision 2008, Media Matters, Crooks and Liars, Pharyngula, and Huffington Post.

There are others, but I do have a life and can´t spend the whole day in front of a computer you know. I have to take over Argentina with cookies and brownies. Speaking of others though. I leave you with this very funny video.

This is from This Week in Blackness.

Family first, I agree.
It´s all about love, recognition and principles. Have a great weekend!

Here via Jessica's place. I've been following "This Week in Blackness" for a few weeks. It is terrific!

Great post.

Hi 99! Thanks, I did and I hope you had a great one too.

Hi Bennie. Thanks for the comment. I was also sad to read about what happened to your stand. I have worked many fairs through my business so it was not a stretch to put myself in your shoes during that post.
