Not a great start to this Fourth Week of Advent (aka “last week before the good stuff”). The Senate went the next step toward a DADT repeal, which isn’t particularly nice of them. Bunch of spineless…bad words. Anyway, I’m just completely depressed and put off by that. Not sure what it bodes for our life, future, livelihood, etc. The whole thing is so dishonest from start to finish, the rhetoric is malicious and skewed, etc etc etc. I could write for a long time about, and not make a heck of a lot of sense, but I won’t. Too t’d off to do so, anyway.
Also, patrol cycle starts/started today. So that’ll ruin my next ten days or so. Nothing like waking up every morning wondering whether you’re still married to anybody.
Also having irritating misgivings about all manner of life decisions, including but not limited to the way I raise my kid, make my food, spend my money, etc.
Oh, and they are trying to repeal DADT. My buddy Danny (good ol, Danny) says not to worry, they’ll reinstate it on January 21st. It’ll be fine. Just don’t worry. But I have a hard time feeling it will be that easy. Can you imagine the backlash from the left? It’s awfully freaking hard to roll back something that the entire world is gushing about being a “great civil rights victory.”
Finally, all this has totally sapped my interest in and motivation to work on my school stuff. And I have a big discussion board due tonight. On World War II. And I haven’t done the reading. And right now I’m supposed to be motivated to be reading all like 115 pages of the relevant chapters.
Yeah. Not happening. Stupid Senate. Merry Christmas to you, too.
