Today is May 26, 2010, and I am starting to become stressed out from the recent current events. My happy-go-lucky disposition is slowly but surely transforming into a demeanor of antisocial resentment and distrust for those around me.
I have spent the past month absorbed in the study of current events that relate to the world around me and now, they're taking a tole on my sanity, they're starting to make me paranoid; I have a gnawing fear growing inside of me that things will not be okay this time around: I feel that we're headed for a national disaster that can't be undone.
I just turned 60 this past March and I can honestly say that things are more stressful for me now than they have ever been in my life. The only other time in my life that I can remember things being so stressful is when I was reaching my 19th birthday and the Vietnam military draft was hanging over my head.
What compounds my fear more than anything is that President Barrack Obama acts so nonchalant about what's going on (especially about the oil gusher in the gulf). He strikes me as a president whose floating through his last few months in office like a lame duck (when we need him most) but this quack still has three more years in office (if he hasn't totally destroyed America by then).
