Funny, just the other day, Nemo and I were trading comments about whether or not Americans’ despair would account for low turnout at protests. Then news about this blog started making the rounds, and the following heart-breaker jumped out at me:
I’m finding it harder and harder to care whether America lasts or not.
This may not be so heart-breaking to everyone, but as a fellow American, I’m terribly sorry to see this, and occasionally, to feel this.
At least, though, it’s a form of protest, right, she asked, grasping for reasons to hope? I mean, the title of the blog refers directly to the arguments about raising taxes on the wealthiest 1% of Americans. And the blog protests. As Lynne McFall says, even bitterness is an assertion that one deserves better, and still has reason to expect better from fellows.
