So OK... we'd like to take a moment to congratulate the Republicans on their wins in the House and the Senate (no one can say we are sore losers). But now that they have won unfortunately I see only two possible scenarios for the newly elected Republican stronghold...
When you wish upon a star... 

Scenario #1...

OK you guys, now that we have the House AND the Senate we need to show the country that they should vote for us in 2016! Here's the plan; we sat around on our hands for 6 years doing nothing but being obstructive then we convinced everybody that the reason nothing got passed was all Obama's fault. His poll numbers dropped and we ran the board Tuesday night...but now that we are in... we pass some small bit of insignificant immigration reform, a watered down version of a  jobs bill, we throw a teeny tiny little bit of money at infrastructure all while passing the Keystone Pipeline, ripping out the Affordable care Act and lowering taxes on the rich even more. In other words business as usual...with a little smoke and mirrors thrown in!
Then in 2016, we look great and have a good chance of getting the Latino vote because, hey we actually passed something on immigration no matter how insignificant it was. We take back the White House and lock out the Dems forever with gerrymandering, dark money and our appointees to the Supreme Court...ta da!

Scenario #2...

Impeach the President
Overturn Obama Care
Take Personhood and make it law in all 50 states...
Impeach the President
Turn back gay rights
Abolish the minimum wage in all states
Impeach the President...
Oh, and expand gun rights to include tanks and rocket launchers ( or maybe those are already legal! )
and don't forget to...impeach the President!

And, the oh so unlikely scenario #3...

Of course there is a 3rd option but it's so remote that I hesitate to even mention it...
For whatever reason sanity prevails and everyone works together and the country prospers and the economy booms and we become the rational people's democracy that we were set up to be and we all live happily ever after...Fairy tales have been known to come true...

Watch this space!

  1. I'm quite happy with the election results so I'm going to be nice and just keep my mouth shut MOL :)

  2. Hmmm, most likely #2. The party who doesn’t want big government will pass bills legislating what goes on in our bedrooms, in our wombs, what we can smoke. They’ll cut funding even more on border patrol and the CDC while complaining how many illegal immigrants Obama is letting into the country and how he’s responsible for Ebola and Enterovirus D68. I’m guessing though that just like they sat on their hands and refused to vote on any of the President’s bills, he’s gonna veto anything they hand him but somehow they’ll come out looking like the good guys.

  3. I'm hoping for #3, but like you I am not holding my breath.

  4. Have a tremendous Thursday Noodle and crew and we heard the news over the pond.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Why do I somehow think it will be scenario #1 for you? Or a combo of #s 1 and 2?

    No country every will achieve scenario #3!

    Well, I won't give my opinion here about our own prime minister and his conservative party. The only thing positive I can say about our current administration is that his wife (equivalent to your First Lady, though not in the limelight in Canada) is a huge cat lover and has done a lot to support the Ottawa Humane Society. They've also adopted some number of shelter kitties.

    But ultimately it's about power and greed and making as much $$$$$$$ as you can, no matter the cost to any other Being or to Mother Earth.

    That applies to every administration on this planet, in my very cynical opinion.

    But I'm sure our conservatives will be happier than pigs in poop, to get the pipeline going! Well rah rah for them. :-P

  6. MOL Weez luv option 2. MOL We wuz rollin' in da floor laffin'.

    Luv ya'

  7. Well they may vote stuff, but the Prez can veto and they don't have enuf votes to override a veto. So nothing will get done as usual.

  8. Maybe if we all turn into corporations we can become people again.

  9. #3 would be wonderful. *sigh*
    It's a very nice dream....

  10. Ugh. It's just gonna be more of the same and nothing gets done.

  11. Everyone loves a fairytale endin'. Maybe number three will actually come true, huh? Paws crossed.


  12. PepiSmartDog: oh my goodness, all this sounds pretty tricky.
    We are not American so we don't really understand what's going on.
    Yayyy for the good guys and Boooo for the bad guys - whichever side they are. BOL!
