One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. ---Plato

Okay, so I haven't entirely abandoned political commentary.  This is a little message of inspiration for those of us who are smarting about the election and wondering what we should do now.  And a reply, of sorts, to those who are exhorting us to sit down, shut up, and line up behind the President.


  1. You go, girl. It's a darn shame that we have to pay for the mistakes of the voters who didn't bother to become informed and fell for that phoney, dumb, next-door-neighbor type. He's as cunning as a fox.

  2. LOL! This is one of the quotes I came across. I saved it to use should I be spurred to write an apropo entry.

    Now to figure out what participation means to me. To start, I'm thinking of writing letters to my Congresspeople. One of the most frustrating and disappointing things to me was how the Dems laid down to the Repubos after 9/11. They gave Bush free reign, unchecked. I hope this election was a wake up call to the damage that they too did by not being a voice of reason when the voice was most needed.

  3. Go T-bird! Go T-bird!

  4. Amen to that sistah!   I have been referring to his administration as “flaunting mediocrity.”

  5. Go Plato.  My new philosophy is, "don't get mad, get organized."

  6. I never was one for standing in line.....

    Love the quote...so appropriate these days!
