I would comment on the recent elections but I am exhausted and pissed off. This country does not seem to want to do anything but ask for immediate fixes by kicking out experienced help and replacing it with new unexperienced help. And that's fine. Maybe it will wake up both parties to the reality that being complacent is not going to work anymore. And maybe if Obama does not have his party at his back with the power of a majority, he might just show us some of the sand he insinuated when running for office.
I don't regret voting for him. He was and still is the best pick of the litter we had back in 08. I did not expect him to have things fixed, just progress on fixing them. For a variety of reasons, he and his party have disappointed me. The lack of intestinal fortitude being highest on my list.
So I refrain from venting my spleen as we countdown to election time. I have accepted the notion that my state will most likely have a poor governor once again. If either party's offering wins, that is what we will have. I have decided to vote for the dark horse just because I cannot give my vote to the front runners.
So just call this a a post to keep the process moving along. I'll be back with something more when I can.
