Let my armies be the trees and the birds in the sky

I've been playing around on Aviary, and this is one thing that I have come up with so far.

Nazis. I hate these guys.

I'm so angry right now. My 80 year old aunt, who I always tough was a little too thought on her daughters but still respected and liked, said this evening that we have four years of Nazism to look forward to, comparing Obama and the Democratic party to Hitler and his followers.
I didn't call her on it. What would I have said? She doesn't respect any opinions that dissent from her own. She voted for McCain because he was Pro-Life, never mind that he doesn't actually believe it. Or that if he had won, he would have been little more than a puppet for the Neo-conservative agenda. Or that Obama actually had a platform with a plan to help women that decided against abortion, something that McCain lacked.
I don't have a problem with honest to goodness Conservatism. People have a right to their opinion and I also think that both sides need the other to rein them in. I also think that conservatism has its merits, I just don't happen to agree with them at all. I'm just not conservative minded. But what irks me is Neo-conservatism and its Scare tactics, using fear to control and motivate people and to divided them against one another in the name of patriotism. It's not just bad, it's truly small minded and to use these tactics is cruel and hateful.
I know that there are people who dislike the two party system, and perhaps we do need a third or Fourth party. But so far we do have just the two parties, and it works well when we agree to listen to each other instead of insist that our party is right and the other are traitors. That gets us no were. Or it gives us the last eight years.
Since it is all we have we need to work together. Not resort to name calling.
But it does give me a certain amount of satisfaction to lambaste a woman who will never find me on the Internet. It may not be the most grown up thing to do. But neither is comparing Obama to Hitler.
I feel better now.

Spitting distance? How vivid!

Did someone just cure Aids?
I read this article on my rss feeder and it just seemed so surreal. A German doctor has apparently cured AIDS. Let me say that again. There may be a cure for HIV. That disease that kills hundreds, thousands, of people all over the world everyday may have a cure now.

Why is this not bigger news?!? I mean, yay Obama and all that, but AIDS. Dude's not even in office yet and already theirs a cure for AIDS. What's next, he's going to fix the Global Economy? Ok, that's a joke. Especially since the cure was admiistered 2 years ago, which is why it's being reported now. It seems to be working.
I had heard about a vaccine, but that is still in the research stage.

This is just so cool.

Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

I thought this was cool. I may not remember the Civil rights movement, and may not get the full impact of this history in the making, but I can try.

Just a curse. Have a nice day.

Dear God,
I'm ready for this election to be over. But if you feel the need to kill me in the near future, please let me at least first cast my ballot and cancel out the "person" who ripped my Obama bumper sticker in half and felt the need to key my car while I was in class. If possible I would like to see Obama win. On the other hand, if he's going to lose, I would rather not know.
Thanks bunches,

PS. If I do have to go, can you also take out the person or people responsible for defacing the "Eastern Shore For Obama" signs. Especially the one who put the Sickle and Hammer on them. I mean, come on, the Socialist Candidate and his supporters are a bit miffed that he's being called a socialist when he's clearly not a socialist. And I also did not see one McCain sign defaced. And I was looking. So, really, it's only fair.
