election day blues

So, the Republicans have taken control of the House and gained seats in the Senate and have declared they will confront the President and foster their own agendas. 

Makes a girl proud, oh yes!
Whatever happened to working together.  
In my business life the first question, well one of the first questions I always asked when confronted with differing views, ideas, desires, demands was always ‘How can we make this work for all of us’.

ah well just needed a moment to rant –


About Debi in Merida

I moved from Colorado Springs, Colorado USA to Merida, Yucatan, MX in January 2006. I love to read, garden, travel, and hang out with friends.

    Hi All – Some thought that the discord would be good for the Country. I'm not sure I can get on board with that thought process. When is discord good? Healthy discussion on varying points of view, YES, definitely good. But when someone declares they will oppose you, regardless or is it irregardless?, well no that just isn't healthy, or good for anyone!
    My pain is in that how can we become all we can be, or move forward-progress, if part of the TEAM has declared WAR!
    ah well, just me rambling again!

    Sadly, my state saw fit to put back in a Senator who was involved with a ring of prostitutes in Washington, D.C. The prostitutes say he is fond of wearing a diaper. All we know for sure is that he moves around a lot. Nobody really knows him – so why does he have the money and votes to keep getting elected? Its nothing short of stupid when people – en mass – will vote for slime just to keep from voting for a good man who happens to be a Democrat.

    Yes, it's a sad day when politicians do anything…most of the time it doesn't help the guy on the bottom, just their buddies in the insurance business, the war business, the government hired more people last year then small mom and pop businesses did in the last decade…
    Reduce the size of government and we all win.

    Democracy can be a bit messy. But, like Josh, I am fine with the gridlock. Let the politicians yammer at each other and get out of our way so we can get on with our lives. It is one of the blessings of liberty that government is generally inconsequential to daily living.

    See you next week at the conference.

    I may be in the minority, but I'm thrilled. A Demo pres and a GOP House means gridlock. And the best economy the US has ever seen was under those very conditions.

    Being a good Libertarian at heart, the less government is involved, the better.

    If you feel bad, imagine how Obama feels. Working together looks like a good idea, as long as it's working together with everyone who looks, thinks and acts like themselves. Voila! A mob!

    Get what you pay for and I aint got that much money. The Dems stayed home yesterday, I doubt they will the next…

    I feel your pain.

    Yes, it's a sad day when the presumed new leader of the Republican house majority announces that his main goal is to limit the president to one term instead of making it his goal to work with the president to move the country forward. Once again we Americans have shot ourselves in the foot!
