I will write about this more, but for now, because I am so emotional, I will simply post the lyrics to these two songs by the group Tears For Fears. That seems to be what our government has done, traded our current fears for our future tears. May our children forgive us…

Tears For Fears

I Believe

I believe that when the hurting and the pain has gone
We will be strong, Oh yes we will be strong.
And I believe that if I’m crying while I write these words
Is it absurd? Or am I being real?
I believe that if you knew just what these tears were for
They would just pour like every drop of rain.
That’s why I believe it is too late for anyone to believe.

I believe that if you thought for a moment, took your time
You would not resign yourself to your fate.
And I believe that if it’s written in the stars, that’s fine.
I can’t deny that I’m a Virgo too.
I believe that if you’re bristling while you hear this song
I could be wrong or have I hit a nerve ?
That’s why I believe it is too late for anyone to believe.

I believe that maybe somewhere in the darkness
In the nighttime, In the storm
In the casino
Casino spanish eyes…
I believe, no I can’t believe that every time you hear a new born scream,
You just can’t see the shaping of a life.
The shaping of a life.


Between the searching and the need to work it out
I stop believing everything will be alright.
We are broken.
I’m walking uphill being turned around and round,
Secret in motion when my feet are on the ground.
We are broken.
In my mind’s eye
One little boy anger one little man
Funny how time flies…

(Lyrics from the LP ‘Songs From The Big Chair‘)


Most of us are dissatisfied with the Bushie way of doing things. About 80% of the US thinks his administration is horrible for one reason or the other. Remember this day. Remember the day that our Democratic Congress capitulated to the Republican President with the Worst Approval Ratings In History.

And remember this:

The Executive Branch didn’t do this to us. The Legislative Branch did this to us. And We Let Them.

I am Jon, unhappy but undefeated.
