Election Aftermath

Reason: "1. We're still on the fast track to the poor house. When the GOP ran the show with George W. Bush, they spent like drunken sailors (apologies to drunken sailors).
2. Nobody's talking about foreign policy and ending the warfare state. In constant dollars, defense spending has basically doubled since 2000 and is projected to stay at levels hundreds of billions of dollars above what it was before the Cold War ended. " 

(I'll leave 3 after the hop)
Good video as well.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

However, I still think this election has positive results, if only because of the potential for gridlock on the hill. It won't make things better, but at least it can slow down the descent. If that is the most to pray for, then so be it. 
If this gridlock can lead to Americans thinking about reality again, let the bells of liberty ring true once again.
Small steps, but maybe they can lead somewhere. 

In other news, Robin Hood was really good. Review forthcoming.
