The Shortest Day and the Longest Night of the Year


The winter solstice is one of my favorite days of the year.  This time last year was pretty rough at MDC Los Angeles.  This year is much better because I’ve had the chance to take my son to a couple of movies and buy him a few useful Christmas gifts.   Two years ago I was still trying to change the world in Texas through civil rights litigation.  It is now fairly apparent that the litigation route is not the way to stamp out Michael Jergins, Laurie J. Nowlin, Michael P. Davis, and their ilk in Central Texas.  As for the dawn of the Obama Nation in America?  Well, the man from…..wherever he’s from…who attended and or hung around so many of the same schools as I did (Harvard, University of Chicago) gave a wonderful acceptance speech election night and since then has basically been trying to make sure that there is no possible accusation that the first partly African ethnic President was a radical—or a fan of civil rights, or a fan of real change.  Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State?  Holdovers from the Bush Administration?  Continuity of all important domestic and foreign policies?  I can’t quite believe it—maybe the powers that be fixed this election because Barack Obama was the ONLY leader with the credibility to continue Bush’s policies.  It all makes me quite ill, in any event.  There is no prospect for real change in the United States, only a skin deep, cosmetic change in the complexion of the President.

  1. I agree….Obama’s a fake. Well, they let africans be the head of the useless U.N….why not let one buy the presidency and see what happens….besides higher taxes, that’s a given…I mean, after all….he is a democrat.

  2. I’ve been a victim of the Williamson County judicial process, as well. I don’t know what say – if you a civil rights activist have lost the will to fight (In Wilco). I’m doomed. Regarding President-Elect Obama, I’m hoping for the best but watchful and weary at the same time. I don’t like the appointment of Clinton retreads, Republicans to key post, and the appearance of continuing some of Bush’s policies.
