I ripped this from by former priest's weekly blog.
"Herewith my Christmas list. I want for:
+ The president of the United States to announce the prompt withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan with some significant portion of the $190 million a day that war costs to be redirected to the relief of poverty here and abroad;
+ The newly victorious Republicans to surrender to the human impulse of generosity, that economic justice may roll down like waters and right-thinking like an everlasting stream;
+ The fascists of Hamas and their counterparts in Iran and sworn enemies in Israel to stand down and consent to an outbreak of peace; and finally + The hate mongers in such places as Uganda and the Sudan to forego their zeal for war and carnage."
Can't wait to hear what you gals are hoping for this year...Answer Question

I would like our current President and Congress to remember they work for us.
I would like our current President and Congress to keep in mind the money I earn is mine not theirs. When I hear some politicians speak I feel like they really think the money is theirs and they are being generous in allowing me to keep 70 percent of it. I pay in my fair share and don't like being demonized for doing well in life.
