People ask me where I stood politically you know. It's not that I disagree with Bush's economic policy or his foreign policy. But that I believe he was a child of Satan here to destroy the planet Earth.

Bill Hicks

I think I can take the stage today and speak in the name of the whole civilized world and say "phew..."

Obviously nobody knows what the election of Mr. Obama will actually mean to all of our futures, but it is clearly a sign that people believe in change. People long for change. We hope that this is a first step towards change.

Personally I will be very happy if by the end of his first term, America has a economy again. Extra points if no other third world country is invaded and double that if somehow some sort of foreign policy that involves stopping the embargo on Cuba, supporting developing nations with food, medicine and technology instead of weapons and money in the hands of right wing soon-to-become-if-not-yet tyrants is put in place.

In all honesty, I'll be fine if at least we have to try hard to make a good joke about the new government in the States, 'cause god knows that this last couple of years they've made it far too easy for us.

PS.: Here's a link to Bill Hicks famous "Revelantions" set for your entertainment pleasure. Now, go back to bed America.
