There is so much acrimony floating around. I've never seen so much emotional outpouriing over an election. We're in a sea of sore losers and lousy winners and it's all done, folks. Youse can go on being all shrill and waste a bunch more time and money doing that or youse can put on your grown up pants and start fixing things.
In case nobody noticed, the NYC/Jersey Shore area is still a Katrina wreck. People need help.
The same people who were struggling and on the edge haven't moved up any since Tuesday.
The same people who didn't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of are still potless and windowless.
People are acting like schoolyard bullies on both sides when what we should be doing is rising above all this crap and fixing things!
Think on this a minute:
Don't let us rejoice in punishment, even when the hand of God alone inflicts it. The best of us are but poor wretches, just saved from shipwreck: can we feel anything but awe and pity when we see a fellow-passenger swallowed by the waves? - George Eliot
Enough with the pointing fingers, accusations, nah nahs and gotchas. There's no time to waste. Let's grow up and get to work.
