Yes we can, but not again…

Well, it seems like nothing will ever change.  The best looking, slick-sounding candidates seem to be getting the attention of the media.  In Germany, no one knows who Ron Paul is.  Everyone laughed at the charts from Ross Perot.  It seems that all of those things are coming to fruition.  Of course no one is …

Dear Mr. President…

Well, with all due respect to Pink, I think she needs a new song. A story:   One of broken promises and misplaced trust.  Here is the letter I wrote (but forged Jonathan’s name to), to Mr. Obama: Dear Mr. Obama, It is with deep regret that I write that you have failed.  You promised …

  Ok, it has been ages since I have written anything, and here is probably the least productive use of my efforts, but as they say in Germany “ich habe jetzt meine Schnauzevoll!”   (Try google translator if you don’t understand.)
