Silence


I haven't been blogging for a while. Mainly, it's because I'm depressed and befuddled over the election.

Depressed because there's really no point in discussing economic policy with Bush in the White House and the Republicans controlling Congress. They're going to run the country into the ground no matter what anybody does, so why bother? Befuddled because it's just hard to switch gears after so many months of thinking about Kerry vs. Bush.

If I were a better person, I'd could be thinking about ways to achieve change at the local level. Or I could be criticizing Bush's plan to privatize Social Security and turn this country into Argentina by running up the debt, like everybody else. Or I'd be proposing ways for the Democrats to win with new and improved rhetoric. Or I would at least be reading the newspaper.

Instead, I've been shopping and rearranging my personal finances. So that's what I'm going to blog about until I get bored of it, or get interested in politics and policy again.
