What can I say?
Obama won, and he won with a mandate! This country is moving more left, which is a good thing. Being under the rule of the neo-cons for so long has done nothing but damaged this country and her reputation. The country spoke, the world spoke. We are going to earn our reputation back.
The below map shows what counties shifted more democrat over the last election. It is a true indicator that the country as a whole is progressing. There are only a few areas that were redder, which are the hillbilly hick parts of the nation and are to be expected anyway.
Obama definitely got the Latin and the black vote out, by the failures of the bigot amendments in California, Arizona, and Florida you can tell that. The black and Latin vote tends to be a lot more conservative when it comes to that kind of things but progressive when it comes to other issues. This is again a general observation. I think that this is a step in the right direction with a mutt for a president (His words, not mine). It will take time.
I am fighting with my mom and younger sister over this. What the Mormon church has done is wrong, it isn’t their place. It isn’t like there are gay men in sets of two knocking on people’s doors and trying to convert people to gayism or anything.
In other news I am completely fucked. I went to the bank today to get money to pay bills and the bank decided to take my money, apply it to the overdraft, and then close my account. So I am fucked for a bit. I ended up having to take out some money out of my 401(k) to be able to pay for the bills I need to pay. I then killed direct deposit to my now extinct checking account and applied it all to my savings. Hopefully it all goes to savings this next check. I have rent to pay.
Anyway, I think I will be fine, but I don’t know how I am going to get gas money between now and when the check clears. Also I have a concert I was going to go to on Monday, looks like I won’t be going to that. It sucks because the ticket is already bought but I don’t have the money to pay for the ticket.
On a brighter note the company gave out the $25 gift certificates to Publix, so at least I can get food and TP.
