Am I happy to be alive, yes. Am I happy to be married to my wife, yes.
Am I happy that young men are dying in wars we cannot win, no.
Am I happy that I cannot find work or buy decent health insurance because I am almost 61, no.
Am I happy because I am an American with rights guaranteed, such as the freedom of speech, which makes this website and others like it possible, yes.
Am I happy we have a Congress that is more concerned with party prestige than with real problems, no.
Therefore I guess I am happy, because as an American I have the right to voice my opinion about the things that make me unhappy.
