The slow motion train wreck continues its way through the evening. The Koch suckers are apparently winning the day for the house.
It's looking like America is going to hand the keys to the car over to the same goofs that drove it into the ditch. 82 percent of the National debt was spent by the Republikans and America's handing seats back to them so they can continue driving the car off the cliff.
Looks like more Blue Dogs got it than progressive Dems, though. I wonder what that portends, if anything at all, outside that old meme that given the choice between a Dem acting like a Con and a Con, the voters will gravitate towards the Connie most of the time.
The hedge fund manager types are feeding the "Libertarian"s the sociopathic stupid stuff they love to hear, and the majority is so confused on the facts it's going to be harder to solve anything. Are we going to have a re-run of the last depression where the stimulus was too small and the Connies cut it even farther trying to budget cut their way out of it to no avail? Is history going to repeat itself?
While I do love watching rich people squander their hard earned money it's been a huge waste of economic resources for this country that could have been better spent on stuff a nation really needs, but the media who got lots of money to air a lot of ads, so there was a little stimulus there just for them.
Being on the west coast is sucky because of the lag in reporting compared to the east, but it gives me more time to plan my continuing strategy to keep voting with my dollars every day until sanity wins the day.
It's sad when they show the color coded chart of house seats and there are only two white ones in the middle of the red and blue. Only one true Independent and a Lieberman represented and the remaining five hundred thirty three seats.
The Reds and Blues forget there is another color on the flag, and it's past the time Independents took it for their own. We need a white stripe coalition of true Independents to take as many of those red and blue seats as possible if we are going to ever keep the reds and blues from spending too much focus and energy on beating one another while they spend too little effort on doing what we sent them there to do. Both need to be benched for a season while people who aren't for sale and capable of recognizing the facts of our matters deal with implementing working solutions.

Drinking while blogging is worse than drunk dialing. With phone calls you don't have bother with what you said every time you pick up the phone, but I see this mangled syntax every time I click the Elections category and left it here as a reminder.
The good news is I have mirrored the content of the Solarbus Election Justice CD at a new Election Justice Center wiki.
