PBS has this documentary on about the 60's and I've seen it before but at this time in history it's so freakin' obvious we have learned nothing. The republicans are still warmongers and have their version of Vietnam (Iraq) and are still distracting us with cries for "victory" while their cronies drain the economy dry. The police are still overpowered and overbearing. The only difference is that there is no draft now because they are more clever than that now, so there are fewer activists to fight the injustice.

But the first African American was nominated to be President of the United States today by a major political party and that's a singular striking difference, so maybe there just is hope for this country yet and we're not going in circles. Even though he's let me down with a couple of his decisions recently and he's far from perfect, I still think he can make up for a great deal of damage over the past decade. He certainly can't be any worse.
