Hooray! It's February, the shortest month of the year. I'm faking excitement because that means a few hundred words less than other months. The last time I tried this exercise, one of my submitted entries disappeared for some reason, thus disqualifying a few weeks of diligence (pretty discouraging, yet I lived). I tried to keep writing, but hit my self-motivation wall. A few times I missed the first of the month, and kept promising myself, "next month, next month." So I'm finally taking another stab at this; grinding out some diction friction and getting all up in your semicolons.

It used to be easy to believe in God. All I had to do was look up at the clouds drifting overhead or watch some amazing sunset and the whole idea of there being a God seemed self evident, though quite what I imagined God to be Iím not sure. When I was very young I used to imagine a benevolent old man with a white beard peering down on my every move below. As I grew older the gender issue kicked in. Did God have a penis? If so, why? If not, then how could God be considered male?

Accountability of the People:
The biggest problem on the back end is there is NO accountability. Some level of a bailout is a necessity to keep the train running, but the most important thing going forward is to lay out the system where accountability is the cornerstone for everyone. If you choose to live beyond your means, then you are held accountable. If you choose to make bad loans; you are held accountable. If you make bad decisions on any level; you are held accountable. The Governmentís job is not to protect stupid, but to create an environment of accountability.
