ran 3.3 miles
Listening to our leader, Barack Obama, speak makes me feel like I am a hopeless, deprived, victimized adult with the attention span and brain power of an eight-year-old.  I know that I am none of these things, but the manner in which he addresses us makes you wonder if he doesn’t think it.

“We can either settle for an economy where a few people do well and everyone else struggles to get by…”

Nice use of hyperbole, Mr. President.  And your broad definition of the “middleclass” lacks all meaning when you lump together everyone excluding the elite and those on poverty.  I am a member of the middle class.  Most of the people I know are members of the middle class and we have no interest in what you’re selling.

“Everyone does their fair share and everyone plays by the same rules…”

Are we in the same universe, Mr. President?  There is a certain amount of human unaccountability and fallibility that is etched into our existence as a species and when you speak of farfetched utopias like a world where everyone plays fair and everyone is a winner, I have to think you are completely out of touch with reality.  I would rather an approach where individuals passionately try to succeed on their own, fail multiple times, succeed multiple times, and then fail again---all without the intervention of the federal government.  That is what life is about, learning from mistakes and using what was learned to succeed---not a mantra of organized fairness that actually requires hundreds of billions in tax dollars to pay for mediocrity when unleashed potential at the cost of smaller government is the better, American alternative.

294.0 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day215.
