Ebb and Flow

So now the Dems control the House and possible the Senate. Are they really going to be able to make the necessary changes with such a slim majority? We’ll see. For the past year I haven’t discussed politics much here or elsewhere. This is because it makes me so angry. Just typing this I feel my blood pressure go up. I have been known to really raise my voice and start yelling when the subject comes up. I can’t believe that after all the shit that went down in the last 6 years, this is all the Dems can win back? This slim majority? They didn’t lay out any strong alternative policy that draws up support for them. People just voted for them because they were sick of the Republicans’ shit. Jon Stewart expressed similar sentiments when he described the Democrats’ election strategy as “backing slowly out of the room as your sibling is getting yelled at for burning down the garage”.

Something tells me, we’re not out of the woods yet. If they don’t start cleaning house soon and mass mailing subpoenas, they are going to lose what they didn’t work so hard to get.

The European reaction.
