Nothing New

So...a few people voted, a bunch of Republicans got in, and now...two years of gridlock ahead. While what?  While we grow economically.  And that will only bode well for the Democrats.

As long as the president is from the Blue Party and we continue on this upward trajectory, we will get what we've been wanting for a long time: a Blue Lady Prez.

In the meantime, I'm going to do other things. I've seen this show before.

My Big Political Questions from November 4

1. If our country believes the road to happiness is lined with dollars, why do the heads of the fast food industry want to deny their workers this joy? Could it be because we still believe in slavery?

2. If we still live with slavery among our citizens, how can the people who promulgate this peculiar institution still be walking the streets and not, logically, put in prison?

3. If you destroy my air with your effluent and all my nieces and nephews get asthma, why are you not made responsible to sequester and treat every single molecule of your waste? Do we condone this kind of abuse for some purpose?

4. If women are being held down financially, and they are, how can you say we are not a misogynistic society?

5. If transgender members of our society are not given complete equal rights to hold any job anywhere at any time, do we not then understand that this is nothing but bigotry?

6. If children are used as the excuse to stop anything, at all (except for the trafficking of children and any abuse of children including health abuse by corporations) then is this not an abuse of children? Causing them undue ignorance?

7. If a woman's right to choose is removed, is there no end to what else a woman should be told what to do?

8. If guns are allowed for the purpose of forming a militia, shouldn't we be able to form a militia to go house to house to remove all the guns?

9. If Obamacare is so awful, is it because people enjoy watching poor people die as a punishment for not graduating from a solid university followed by a six figure salary and trips to Antigua?

10. If the Republicans take over everything while Obama's duck gets lame, won't this be a great set up for Democrats to take over everything in two years?

I like, certainly, Four Things about New York

The Air
The Water
Spring
and
Autumn


I spent the first five years of my life living high up on the Hudson and now that I am living on that river again, something feels correct at a cellular level. The moisture content is right.

I do think this city would have benefited from less greed and less "culture" and more attention paid to its pretty spectacular setting. But I like plants and animals more than another remake of The Elephant Man. Though I do wish Bradley C. well.

NYC: Come for the theater and restaurants, stay for the groundhogs.
