    Excuse the pun, 'mean,' as usually applied to Democrats/Liberals.....in this case I mean the mathematical mean, the average, the usual behavior.






    1. Consider these two cartoons as predictions for the House Democrat's plans:

    And this....

    2. Based on the anger, hostility, violence and immaturity of the Left/Democrats/Liberals/Antifa, one might expect the next two years to be nothing but lawyers and charges, not governance.





    But....a girl can dream, can't she.

    Now, Celly.....

    ....when you look at what Trump has done in his short tenure......how can you be opposed to the rapidity of bringing America back into being the America of the Founders???

    /----/ Trump is the exception - not the rule. All democRATs will do for 2 years is investigate, bitch, moan and complain. Not much will happen on the House side. Trump will get his Judges through thanks to the GOP Senate and the Dingy Harry rule.

    I see little more than upsides.

    1) Divided gubmint means that they'll have a hard time trampling even more of our liberties (precious few that remain).

    2) The democrats will put their sheer lunacy out front and center for all to see.

    3) I have a nice stockpile of popcorn.

    "Trump is the exception - not the rule."

    Amen to that!


    One of our gripes for years has been that the Democrats are street fighters, and the GOP is filled with Caspar Milquetoasts.


    Not Trump.

    He gets up each day, and slips the brass knuckles into his gloves......


    The Dems can't believe that this guy hits back!
    Not used to that from Republicans.

    Just ask Jim Acosta.

    The House is supposed to hold the purse strings and that's a scary thought.

    Need to get back to having Congress submit a yearly budget and stick to it.

    *****SMILE*****

    3. Based on the outcome, Democrat voters for the House of Representatives appear not to realize the reason for electing representatives.


    Skin color, gender, and sexual orientation…and what might be called ‘revenge,’ are the coin of the realm, rather than accomplishments that favor and award America and the American people.





    4. For eight years of a failed presidency Obama talked a good game….but did naught but lower expectations:

    “Team Obama: Sorry, America, the ‘new normal’ may be here to stay

    The good times may be over for good. In a speech to the Economic Club of New York yesterday, US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said the US GDP growth rate, adjusted for inflation, is now projected to run a little above 2% a year.”
    Team Obama: Sorry, America, the 'new normal' may be here to stay - AEI


    Then, along came Trump….

    In two short years Trump’s policies and expertise provided an economic miracle.






    5. Now….will the Democrats of the House add to that….or will they do something else?

    A "divided" government is not such a bad thing. The pity is that those bastard Senators from Arizona and the Far North were able to prevent so much of the Trump agenda during the past two years.

    Like it or not, Madam Pelosi will control the H.R. agenda for the foreseeable future; and on the other side, the Republicans don't have a "Newt" to confront her.

    But still, Our Exalted President has many arrows in his quiver, and his prospects for 2020 are looking quite rosy for now.
