2 Days, 21 Hours, 45 Minutes. Not That I Am COunting Or Anything

The countdown thing I have had on the page for as long as I can remember is ticking down.

I can recall when there was a large number there. And it would depress me. That number seemed so big. And it counted down so slowly.

But now we are down to under 3 days. As of right now, as I type this, 2 days 21 hours and 46 minutes.

45 minutes now.

I remember when I put the counter up. Get ANYONE else. It did not matter who. Just as long as it was someone else.

And so here we are. We got someone else. And I am pleased with the choice. The new guy is not in the office yet, and so has not done anything yet. But already the right is predicting failure, fires, floods, plagues, terror attacks, and whatever else they can possibly think of.

But I am the one full of doom and gloom.

Assholes on the radio are talking about the "Obama recession" because the stock market did not immediately recover the day after the election.

As if that has anything to do with anything.

I can remember early 2001 fairly vividly. The conformation hearings. Crony after crony was paraded in. The one party in power was quick to confirm them all. Anyone who questioned and appointment was just carrying sour grapes from the 2000 election results.

So we made a horse breeder head of FEMA. We put a dolt in charge of the justice department. We put a good man in charge of the State Department, and a criminal in as Secretary Of Defense.

The good man quit after 4 years - his once perfect reputation in tatters.

Compare that to now. Look at who the appointees are. People who might actually be able to do a decent job. Sure there are questions - and they are being asked. As they should. But not one appointment is based strictly on being "loyal" or being a long time personal friend who has no real claim to the job - other than the king wants you to have it.

We do not know what the future has to hold. I expect there to be good times, and bad times. Maybe more bad times than good. Who really knows.

But as far as the executive branch is concerned, I have more confidence that better decisions will be made.

The Congress - I am not so sure about. I do not know if the house will be willing or able to pull towards the center. The senate will probably be able to pull itself more to the center.

I have little doubt that the new executive branch will govern from and push an agenda for the center. At least I hope so.

So, out with the old and in with the new - in accordance with American tradition and government structure. There is no revolution. No overthrowing anything. Nothing but an orderly transition from one administration to another. Something that is not really as common as it needs to be in this world.

To the old - just go already. You really do not have to wait for the last minute. Do not forget to pardon yourself and everyone connected to you, so that you can admit guilt and the new administration will NOT have to drag the nation through investigations and whatnot. It can just end. Otherwise there will be investigations into possible wrong doing (which you already admitted to on TV when you claimed that you got legal opinions before violating various international agreements that the USA was a steward of) - or calls for investigations into why there are no investigations. A self appointed pardon will make all of that unneeded.

To the new - do not screw up. You are going to be held to a higher standard. Other than that - nobody can really say anything. We have to just wait to see what you do.

Even my father, who has been a dyed-in-the-wool republican since the 1980's, said that he's sure Obama will be a better president than Bush. I said that my dopey dachshund, Cujo, would be a better president than Bush, but I agreed that Obama will certainly be better.

TLP - The end of an ERROR is almost over.

Lily - you know, a lot of Bush voters are realizing this. I do not think that they will back a retard ever again.

TO THE WORLD!! - Sorry! We fucked up. Well I did not fuck up - I ALWAYS voted for the other guy. I tried. But as a nation we fucked up, and we are very very sorry. PLEASE forgive us.

There's a lot of things I don't like about the Democrat's agenda. But it is true, the Bush administration has been a bit of a disappointment.

Wіth havin so much content do you ever run into аny ρroblems of ρlаgorism
or copyrіght violаtion? My website has а lot of
comρletely unique сοntent I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd ԁefinitely
apprеciate it.

What yοu ωrotе was actually very reаsonable.
But, what аbоut this? what if you
wrote a catchіеr title? I mean, I
dοn't want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a headline to maybe grab people's
attention? I mean "2 Days, 21 Hours, 45 Minutes. Not That I Am COunting Or Anything" is κinda boring.
You could glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you've got to ѕаy.

Just my οpinion, it might bring your posts a littlе bit mοre
intеrestіng.
