One more week...Good...Riddance...Bush.
I've said a number of times that I do not know why anyone would want to be president at this time but for all our sakes, I wish Obama well and hope he is able to be effective. But as I've argued, change will come from us, not a president or new administration. So with one week to inauguration day, I have a couple questions to ask (I ask my students these questions at the end of every semester):
1. What local, national, and global issues would you like to see change?
(examples: education, health care, gang violence, police brutality, global warming, AIDS, Iraq War, freedom for Palestine, End "isms" like racism, sexism, etc.)
2. What DO you do to address your chosen social issues?
3. What CAN you do to address your chosen social issues?
Post replies in comments and let's start to build solutions to the problems Bush has made a million...times...worse. There's no time to waste.
