Quote for the day -- taking pride

"Today this country is your country. Do not litter. Don't drive through traffic lights. Don't bribe. Don't forge paperwork. Don't drive the wrong way. Don't drive quickly to be cool while putting lives at risk. Don't enter through the exit door at the metro. Don't harass women. Don't say, 'It's not my problem.' Consider God in your work. We have no excuse anymore."

That's a hopeful message. I wish the Egyptian people well.

Unfortunately, not everyone does, especially not the rabid right wingers who see only negatives in what happened in Egypt because Mr. Obama happened to be the president during the revolution. And Dog know they have to be against anything positive that happens during his administration.

Now let's see what happens in Wisconsin where tens of thousands are gathered to protest a Tea Bagging governor who, by all appearances, is against working people and unions.

Good advice for Americans too! Lately it seems there are more angry people than ever before...drivers cutting you off in traffic, people bumping into you at the store without saying "sorry", kids bullying at school...makes me wonder what the heck's in our water!

I'm not as familiar with the Middle East as some, so I'm reading as much as I can about the "situation" and hoping that it all works out. I know Mubarack was a bad dude and I'm hoping that whomever they elect is good for their country, as well as ours.
