    Maybe not the whole country, but Cali is now France without the Seine.

    I was off looking at rural properties yesterday and today, so tonight when I turned the PC on, I figured I should come over to Sondrakistan and see if everyone had jumped off a cliff.

    Does anybody here really believe that the hurricane and the coverage of same really swing the election back to O?

    Hugh Hewitt, who I am not as big a fan of as I used to be, seems to think it is the major reason for the loss.

    I’m not so sure.

    Steve, the OTHER 1/2 of the country jumped off a cliff yesterday..kinlaw has it right.

    First liberal I ran into today started complaining about a morbidly obese guy she knows on Medicare who’s getting cataract surgery “with no intention of paying for it “…I got to tell her to make sure she takes care of him. She made him……….

    Hmmm. “Tax increase now for spending cuts later.”

    Haven’t the R’s already fallen for that once?

    I woke up this morning to find out that here in MN the frakkin’ Libs took the state house AND senate last night. Nice addition to Frikkin Gov Dayton. Crap. This week is just getting better and better. The “one man, one woman” mariage amendment went down. Voter ID did not happen. WTF? At least we didnt legalize pot…. OTOH maybe that might have been a good thing to get my mind off reality.

    My home child care business has a huge freakin target painted on it. (Long story) The only thing in my favor was that the dems did not have the legislature….until now.

    My ass hurts.

    Now entertaining options of any republican state left to move to.

    Why is the Champs Elysee lined by trees?

    At least California has better wine.

    Probably more expensive soon, though.

    Until all the new regulations put them out of business and out of the state.

    MikeG @ 7 “Now entertaining options of any republican state left to move to.”

    May I suggest Alabama? My property taxes last year were less than $500. We’re not all stereotypical, cud-chewing rednecks down here. If you prefer a more high-tech climate, try the area around Huntsville. More PhDs in Limestone County than any other US county (or so I’m told).

    Mojo @ 8 “Why is the Champs Elysee lined by trees?

    Because the Germans prefer marching in the shade.

    From Family Security Matters blog:

    Game Called on account of darkness

    The lights have gone out in America now. They may come back. They may not. It’s up to us. No one is going to come help us do it. Other countries have America. We have ourselves.
    . . .
    Revolutions are not born out of success, they are born out of despair. They rise out of the dark hours of the night. They come from the understanding that all the other options are running out. Sometimes you have to fall down to rise and sometimes you have to hit bottom, to gather one last breath and fight to reach the top.

    This is still a wonderful country. It is the finest place that this civilization has produced. Despite the events of the last day, it is worth fighting for.

    Never been to Alabama, Baxter. But I do enjoy the folks south of the Mason Dixon. All the waitresses call me “Honey”

    Why? Because negotiations with the unions to mow the grounds took too long.
    Why? So the immigrants can overturn and burn cars in the shade.

    The Mayan calendar was right about the world ending in 2012. They were just off by a month.

    My advice to Rick: next time talk less and shoot first.

    ZZ, Reminds me a a favorite quote from “Man of La Mancha.”

    “What is illness to the body of a knight errant? What matter wounds? For each time he falls he shall rise again, and WOE to the wicked!”

    “Sancho! My armor and my sword!”

    Fat Baxter, if I lived in one of the deep-blue states instead of fairly close to Memphis, I’d seriously consider Abalama.

    I mean, they speak English there (sorta) and I can bring all my gunz.

    Merovign, all the components for making good wine are available off the shelf. Some assembly required. If I can do it, anyone can.

    This picture is perfect! That is EXACTLY how I felt about 11:30 Tuesday night, when I realized, against all hope, that moronic stupidity had reached epidemic proportions in our beloved country.

    Now find a picture of King Kong ripping the h-ll out of New York City, ’cause that’s how I feel today!

    Never give in! Never give up!
