Some you win, some you lose

The election of 2006 is over. For the most part the outcome pleases me -- the Congress will no longer be a rubber stamp for our president. On the otherhand, what used to be called the Virginia Bill of Rights now excludes some people from certain rights. I am glad that out in Cousin Dale's new home they had the wisdom to reject a similar measure. Way To Go, Arizona!

Impeachment of George W. Bush? Hmmm. A tastey prospect, I must say. But I hope the newly Democratic Congress will get some nutritious work done first -- realigning the tax code with the real world in which most Americans live, raising the minimum wage, making sure that senior citizens rather than drug manufacturers receive the MediCare Prescription Benefit, and of course, get the US troops out of Iraq. Once we take care of our nutritional needs, maybe then we could have impeachment for dessert.

Hey now - Prop 107 in AZ could still pass - with only 34k votes down and over 250k votes not yet counted there is a real possiblity that it will still pass. I proudly voted for it!

You call congress a rubber stamp, but the reason the republicans got fired was not because they agreed with the Prez, but instead because they wouldn't use the bully pulpit to get anything done.

Impeachment is a pipe dream for librals - its never gonna happen. Taxes do need an overhaul, so does medicare and Iraq --- but I'm guessing we are thinking of much different solutions.

I hadn't heard from you in a while - talk to you soon...
