". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

Thoughts on the Economy

Have you noticed that while the President-Elect has stated his intention to remain quiet on international affairs until he takes office (not wanting to step on the current occupant's toes), he is not at all shy about speaking out on the economy? (This is not my own observation. I stole it from someone, but can't remember the source.)

Does anyone besides me find it illogical that the government is going to take more money from us so that it can give us more money?

Did you happen to see the Republican response to Obama's economic speech yesterday (or was it the day before)? John Boehner and Mitch McConnell were doing their best to look like it mattered what they had to say. But the glazed looks in their eyes and the whipped expressions on their faces spoke much louder than their words.

It's going to be a very long four years. And yes, I'm holding out for no more than four.
