Thankful

I'm thankful.

I'm thankful for all the neocons out there, defending their right to make a profit with the blood of my friends, my family, my neighbors.

I'm thankful for all the politicians out there, ensuring all that monsanto and archer daniels midland can continue to murder the small family farm.

I'm thankful for all the fundamentalist preachers out there, saying that some of us are less human than others, and are undeserving of compassion and hope.

I'm thankful for all the demagogues out there, saying that waterboarding is just fine, that we're better than the Japanese when they did it.

I'm thankful for all the apathetics and cowards out there, saying that things can't get better, and why bother trying.

I'm thankful for those who have forgotten our past, who ask what this country is all about.

I'm thankful for the lies spewed, for the people murdered, for the dreams ruined. I'm thankful for the hatred, for the ignorance, for the fear.

I'm thankful.
