Where's the outrage?

Good question. There is certainly enough reason to be outraged - more than enough reason to be outraged. If you're not already outraged, you should be. You really, really should be. While I'm sure that there are plenty of folks who are all abuzz about Obama and "change", I can't help but wonder if there's any consideration of the genuine suffering that is occurring, and seems likely to continue occurring for the foreseeable future, at the hands of the US government. Did you really believe that the Dems would somehow stop the war and torture in the aftermath of their 2006 victories? Do you really believe that in spite of their abysmal record thus far that they'll somehow manage to do the right thing this next time? Do you still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny? Like Jim Branum, I want to be hopeful. I just see very reason to have "hope" as long as the status quo remains intact.
