Christmas 2010

I have only one wish for this Christmas: Peace. These last two years have been hell in the American political system. Too much rhetoric, too much venom. The reward for the most progressive Congress in 40 years?...One-third of them were sent home. That was the by-product of anger and fear, not peace.

When we are peaceful, when we are civil, we are productive. It is time for American politics, and in turn American government, to be productive again, on a consistent basis. I have a feeling that my wish will not come true because too many in the process benefit from the rancor that has plagued Washington, DC for too long.

That is a shame because America cannot be all it can be when it is at war with itself...Merry Christmas everyone! May all your wishes come true...
