    I'm out



    I got out last night about 7 and by 7:30 I was at the polls

    The most important offices went my way but when I look at the County map this morning we are an ever decreasing "red zone". At least 80% of our once solid red county is now blue.

    To my surprise, my neighbor lost his State Senator seat---I have to confess that I did vote for him while holding my nose since he "was ours".

    Our Democratic Senator was re-elected by wide margin. He is a waste of air and does nothing---including answering letters and emails. I voted for the Libertarian.

    The Republican candidate who is now a Representative was heavly supported by the Party and Trump was embarrassed. He is part of the coal mafia and the only place he could get elected is in the coal fields. They seem to have an ingrained love for crooks

    I have to issue a correction to my above post---my neighbor persevered---I'm told. He pulled ahead on absentee ballots.

    To give you an idea of how this area is turning blue---his opponent was a black women who 4 years ago wouldn't have raised a dust.

    Glad you're home. Much better than being in the hospital.

    The coming leadership of committees in the House will look like the bar scene in the first Star Wars movie.

    Fight Club. Glad you got out of the hospital and are doing better.
    We should never forget the Constitution wasn't written to restrain citizens behavior, it was written to restrain the governments behavior.

    It’s gonna be fun. I’m too old to really care anymore and just look forward to the entertainment element in politics now. Lord knows we have some goofy character actors playing out their parts now.
