Phew... I am so so so so so (x10000000000000) glad that it is finally election day. I will no longer have to see another smear commercial or field another recorded phone call. Now, I'm a very politically involved person (despite the fact that I'm too young to vote), so I guess I can't understand why the hell voters can't just go out and inform themselves instead of relying on the boob tube to tell them about the wealthiest candidates. I will never be elected first female president if it continues to come down to wealth... I was watching that VH1 Fabulous Life episode with Bush and Kerry today for like the 50th time... it's sick... really sick... if I could vote, I would write in the name of the homeless guy I see all the time by Muffin Break... I'm pretty sure he's over 35...

Today, I write to you from my community college computer lab. I'm going to bite my tongue and not say anything about the presidential election because I'm resolved to be a good American and support my leaders ::snicker::.
::is still resolved::
::continues to be resolved::
AHH!! Screw being polite, I'm disappointed! The American Democratic system sucks! know what? I'm moving to France or Switzerland first chance I get! Au revoir

Sometimes she is called the Innocent. Other times she is called the Beautiful Soul or the Pure Heart. She is the Brave Warrior's other half. She is a beloved archetype.
I speak of Penelope, Andromakhe, and Cleopatra. She is strong, capable, but above all, faithful. Can you see her yet?
What if I called her an Army Wife.
Lately her image has been following me around everywhere. On Monday, I watched "We Were Soldiers," which is a great movie, punctuated by sad scenes of weeping women who have just learned that their men will not be returning home.
The next day, after work, I come home, turn on the TV, and there's a black and white about a bunch of Air Force officers and their wives on a base in Japan during the Korean War. Now I realize this film was made in the sixties, but I could hardly believe it when one of the vetran wives intimates to a newcomer:
"There's hardly any quarreling here... Our motto is 'keep 'em happy, because you don't know if they'll be back."'
No. You know what? That's not how it works.
I'm probably going to ruffle some feathers here, especially since it's the fourth of July, but soldiers are not special. I've dated my share of them, and almost married one. They are grunts. Whether they are "good people" is dependent upon their personality and actions, not their service status.
Even so, I can't come up with a single culture that doesn't revere the Warrior, and by proxy, the Innocent. Watch the news sometime. When they want to effect your sentiment about the "military action" in Iraq, they use the Innocent.
When they want you to hate the war, she's a crying widow.
When they want you to love the war, she's a proud matriarch, full of hope.
Ok, maybe none of this makes any sense, but it's a very raw sentiment of mine.
