I'm sure there are.
The big thing that I hope people take away from this election is that it wasn't a landslide victory. The "majority" of the country may have chosen our president, but I put it in quotation marks because it wasn't an overwhelming majority. Both major parties have shifted to the extremes over the last few years and I believe that it is in the best interest of our nation for the leaders (starting with the president) to find a way to bring us back to the center as a whole. That is the only way to unite us.
Even when it is a landslide victory, the losers are equally deserving of having their point of view acknowledged and honored, if not necessarily implemented.That's how you avoid tyranny.

Pellen,
It is a hollow victory when the reclusive Jesse Jackson Jr wins re-election by a landslide.
Congratulations on a job well done.

I agree with you on that one. What is equally amazing is that his Congressional district includes a large chunk of far south suburbs and rural areas, not just Rainbow Push City constituents .

The Feds will proecute him and he will resign . I think they hold special elections for vacnt Rep seats rather than let a governor appoint an interim Rep.

OKay. Put your money where your mouth is.

Your County has a strong Republican organization. Get active. Star like Jess at the grass root.
Run for office or try for a job in a congressional rep's office.
Instead of griping, take some action.
Keep your job, just add the extras to have your point of view heard.
Write letters to your congressmen outlining specifically what you think should be done and how to do it.
You are intelligent and articulate.
You are a vet with a college degree and the knowldege of a work place.
If you don't know who to call, send me a PM and I will get you a name and phone number.

I am waiting for Mr Romney to release teh specifics of teh plan he had to create jobs on Day 1 of his administration, so, for teh good of the country, more people can go to work. Ryan at least published his budget before he was chosen as a candiadte.Rather than just griping, he did something tangible

Ryan also gave us something full of so many inaccuracies and holes, it was easy to rip apart and show that he didn't have a clue what he was talking about.

maybe he was too busy making up fake times for the marathons he never actually ran.

new Miss manners column:

DEAR MISS MANNERS,

I am married to a wonderful man who is in excellent physical shape. He works out regularly, and has the stature to show for it.

It happens quite often that we will be at a social gathering and someone will inevitably ask him "what he does" to maintain his physique. He is always happy to briefly explain that he lifts weights consistently, takes nutritional supplements in addition to a healthy diet, etc.

However, I am dismayed at how often this will be followed by some implication that he uses illegal steroids. Joking or not, this strikes me as incredibly rude and inappropriate.

Heaven forbid a man got his biceps the old fashioned way! A "that's none of your business" type response seems to us to imply that he does use steroids, so how can we counter this question without being hostile?

GENTLE READER,

"By being shocked. This is such an effective way of stopping people dead that Miss Manners wonders why it is not used more often.

At the mention of steroids, jokingly or not, he or you --or both, if you are both present-- should shoot your eyebrows up to your hairline and say, "Don't you know that's bad for you? You should never, never consider doing that!" and so on and on."

***

How about: "Ha, no way does he take anabolic steroids, you should see the size of his balls!"

WHAT resurgence? The one he promised four years ago or the one he's promising four years from now?

My coworker whose daughter cried four years ago, thinking we'd all die from terrorist attacks because Obama got elected, just told me that she would rather be in bed crying all day the rest of the week, because she fears for our safety.

My goodness.

I'd love to sit and watch her at a Chris Rock show. Or Dane Cook. Or Dice Clay. Or Old School Eddie Murphy. Or Carlos Mencia.

This woman would shit her pants at the inappropriateness in the air. If that question, when its obviously a joke, offends her so much, I'm guessing any joke higher than a kintergarten level would bother her.

My republican HR director told me that our former company president, also a republican, told her that he'd looked back over his life and was able to determine that no election really had much effect on his life, either to the better or to the worse. His life and his options pretty much stayed the same over time.

I think that's true for most or many of us. It's the poorest and the richest who see the most benefit or loss from various political decisions.
