"Americans used to say where there's a will, there's a way. Nowadays, it's where there's a pill, there's a way out." - - Burnt Toast

Blood In The Streets. . .

It's over.  And by that, I mean the two years of political insanity that has enveloped this country in a shroud of misery and frustration since the coronation of King Obama is done like the Christmas turkey. Pray that this new group of Republicans can shake off the filthy politics of Washington DC and provide common sense solutions to our common problems.

At some point, these idiotic politicians need to realize that spend, spend, spend is doing nothing but digging, digging, digging a gigantic finanical hole that we are likely to not get out of for decades, if ever. If the people that "run" our country were in charge of a publicly traded entity, they would have been sacked by their shareholders many months ago. You don't have to be an economic genius to realize that spending more than you have is bad for business.

I am pleased at the results of last night's elections, but I don't let the excitement get to my head. Once this new group arrives in Washington, it will be a very long, uphill battle to solvency for this nation. And it's unlikely that Demoncrats, stung by the losses, will cooperate on many issues even though our fearless leader Obama has offered to reach out and embrace the new Congress. He's made a healthy living at lying, why believe him now?

At a minimum, maybe a little fiscal sanity will be restored, that's all we can hope for really. Politics is politics, a filthy business in which the squeaky palm gets the grease, but heaving out a good portion of the folks who got us into the mess is a fine start.

Can't wait till 2012.
