Reading CNN.com at work today set me on the path to a discussion with my co-workers about the price of gas, our precarious national security situation because of our dependence on foreign oil and how there is no end in sight. This led to me becoming rather depressed about the fact that I drive a Chevy Blazer...a truck that I am pretty much stuck with for a while. Gas will be 5 dollars a gallon by the end of the year. Though, in reality, even if I was driving a smaller car, I'd not likely be saving all that much money at the end of the day. Or maybe I am just telling myself that. Either way, it bums me out to see things deteriorate in such a way. I wish I could install solar panels on my house, but I lack the know how and capital.
This feeling is compounded by the fear that Clinton will somehow win the nomination. It saddens me to think that people still get ahead by way of character assassination and fear mongering. If she wins the nomination, I am just going to sit this one out. Because a country ran by her or McCain will not be different one way or the other.
Man, I am really down about this.
