The election is over...

I predict the left is going to be very disappointed with Obama's performance. For example, if he keeps his promise to "bankrupt" the coal industry, the higher heating costs will push us further into recession.

There are some good things that came of the election:

1. The Democrats have no excuses now. They have the Presidency and both houses. The ball is entirely in their court. The only thing I would fight them for would be Supreme Court judges.

2. California said "NO" to gay marriage, and the gays are not so gay today! They are marching in the streets in protest.

3. We have proved racism is dead in America, although it looks like sexism is still alive and well (Hillary, and Palin were both treated extrememly unfairly).

4. Republicans can now get their party back on track with conservative ideas.

5. There were no riots!

The people have spoken... Some of them more than once.

But I heard Al Sharpton say this very morning that to assume racism is dead is naive. I fear that racism will never be dead in the eyes of some people.

Brooke, didn't you vote twice? JUST KIDDING...

Hi Cube, Well, they will certainly look stupid if they keep harping on that... but then they are, so I guess that makes sense in the long run.

It was never about the excuses. It always was and will be about power. And NOT having power is always a "bad" thing. There's nothing "good" that can come from helplessness. "Reasoning" is for cowards. ;-)

How all occasions do inform against me,
And spur my dull revenge! What is a man,
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? a beast, no more.
Sure, he that made us with such large discourse,
Looking before and after, gave us not
That capability and god-like reason
To fust in us unused. Now, whether it be
Bestial oblivion, or some craven scruple
Of thinking too precisely on the event,
A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom
And ever three parts coward, I do not know
Why yet I live to say 'This thing's to do;'
Sith I have cause and will and strength and means
To do't.
Examples gross as earth exhort me:
Witness this army of such mass and charge
Led by a delicate and tender prince,
Whose spirit with divine ambition puff'd
Makes mouths at the invisible event,
Exposing what is mortal and unsure
To all that fortune, death and danger dare,
Even for an egg-shell. Rightly to be great
Is not to stir without great argument,
But greatly to find quarrel in a straw
When honour's at the stake. How stand I then,
That have a father kill'd, a mother stain'd,
Excitements of my reason and my blood,
And let all sleep? while, to my shame, I see
The imminent death of twenty thousand men,
That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,
Go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot
Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause,
Which is not tomb enough and continent
To hide the slain? O, from this time forth,
My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!

Hi FJ, Let's hope it's only for 2 years - then take back the House of Reps.
