Blog was down, now it’s up. Having some domain issues of my own doing…
But let’s do some somewhat rambling Post-Election talk….
So – Heck Yeah for not only keeping the Senate, but increasing our body count. There’s no stopping our Judicial appointments now! The Democrats better get out the life support for Darth Bader Ginsberg cause their powerless to stop Trumps Nominee’s for the next two years. And the number of judges Trump has appointed, many for life terms, is yuge. This is the sort of stuff that resonates for the next 30-40 years.
Not to mention we replaced several wimpy Senate Republicans. (So long Flake!)
Is now a good time to mention that every single Senator who voted NO on Kavanaugh who was up for election this time lost? #KavanaughsRevenge should be trending…
Well, there is the House…
First off, to all the US House Republican ‘old guard’ who couldn’t stand Trump and threw in the towel and declared they wouldn’t be running for re-election when the left/media start spewing this talk about the BLUE WAVE coming… yeah – you guys cost us the House.
The re-election percentages for the House incumbents is something like 90-95%. So those 43ish House Republicans who didn’t run, most of their seats flipped – Good job goons. (But hey, at least we drained the swamp of you!)
Second off, losing the house boosts Trumps re-election and Red Wave chances up significantly for 2020. Because after two years of awesomeness, now we are going to witness two years of childish frothing craziness coming from the House trying to subpoena everyone and everything related to Trump. Congress is going to be gridlocked over pettiness, and if Trumps tweets prove anything, most Americans don’t like pettiness from their politicians.
So… the bad news.
Well, according to the stats – Millennials went hard left. Basically the big Republican voter block is the 40ish plus crowd and everyone younger banked towards Socialism. So we’ve got a crummy stretch ahead of us, even if we have a wonderful 6 more years.
In these ‘kids’ defense.. They’ve got bullshit degrees with huge loans. They can’t afford a down payment on a house. They have the highest percentage of ‘basement troll’ status EVER. (By that I mean they live with their parents)…. AND society has babied the crap out of them, giving them participation trophies for nothing and telling them that they are special snowflakes and deserve the world. That ain’t so. No one owes you jack.
I can see the appeal of Socialism to them. That’s not an excuse, it’s just a reality when our Education system fails so terribly to properly educate on why a Democratic Republic is awesome and Socialism/Communism/Collectivism is horrific.
Unfortunately, they’re going to drag us down with them if there isn’t a serious re-awakening in America…. which I don’t foresee as long as the left controls public education. BUT as another fella mentioned to me, the 60’s had a lot of pro-communist kids, and most of them woke up when the real world smacked them in the face with a job, taxes, government regulations and responsibilities. So there is hope that these fools will convert to sensible and wonderful Capitalists still.
Long early morning ramble.
Overall, pretty darn good election.

I’m glad that house republicans that couldn’t stand trump are gone. I’d rather have a house that’s controlled by people openly not working with Trump than a house full of red that still doesn’t work with Trump. We had the House, the Senate, and the presidency. We should have been introducing, passing, and signing legislation like it’s going out of style! What happened? Some nice tax cuts, and… ? I’m a gun owner, so the tabling of the SHARE Act will likely live within me for forever (I’m good at grudges), but that’s far from the only thing that didn’t happen.
Honestly, what means more to me is that the ability to appoint whatever judges Trump wants for the next two years. Let’s hope RBG gets replaced with someone who thinks like Ron Paul.

Agreed! I suppose the first six months, at least, the GOP figured Trump would be kicked out of office and was suckered into this entire collusion/stolen election mumbo-jumbo. That wasted a lot of time.
Comparatively speaking, the left has an entire list of things to push for as soon as they take office.
It’s one of the annoying things about Republicans. They’ll only band together and fight when they are the minority party. It’s like whenever they take the majority they throw their hands up in the air like Ricky Bobby and go, “What do we do?!”

I’ll give the left this: they can cooperate and legislate when it’s time to legislate. Republicans are pretty good at defense, but they have no offense, no drive to improve. They only know how to act from a position of vulnerability.
Huh. I just realized that they have more in common with the victimhood claiming ‘snowflakes’ than I imagined.
