So . . .GA6 and SC5 remain repub.
Okay. So what! In the last 7yrs the dems have lost well over a thousand seats across the board and now the GOP has control of BOTH the Senate and the HoR -- and now the WH. Yet, are we even close to REAL Obamacare repeal; or tax reform? No. Are we closer to REAL spending cuts or a Balanced Budget? Nuh-uh. How about the runaway costs of SocSec; any closer to any reform there? HAH!
So, excuse me for not popping the bubbly over the GA or SC "wins". I grade on actual legislative RESULTS - not merely on intentions. We get enough of that w/ the bullsh*t COMMON CORE education system.
That's my not-so-humble opinion!
Let's face it options exist. However let's face it solving this entire scandal is not in the interest of either party at the moment.
"At the mment", huh Pat! We're still in Afghanstan, for goodness sake! Osama bin Laden has been dead for six years now!
DC solves NOTHING!
DC is about ducking, rolling, CYA and get elected again.

DC solves NOTHING! Don't you think that that is intentional?
Valid question, Pat, and a relevant one for those that aren't knowledgeable about the goings on in DC (or the District of Corruption).
I'd say "yes" when referring to the democrats and D-INDies. I'd also include the progressive (or liberal) repubs as they are on board w/ the EU/UN globalism scam and amnesty-plus-benefits for ALL illegals. And lets not forget the clear resistance to completely repeal the ACA.
The Rs that had announced during the 2016 race that they'd opt to vote for Hillary-the-pooch over the MAJORITY's choice (DT) - is enough proof for me that those "Rs" had every intention to continue using their OLD EXCUSE that they would've done all those things that were PROMISED to us since 2010 - but that...well, gee, the voters had spoken. If you recall, back when Obamacare was passed and signed into law by EVERY dem in DC, including king O, the former Speaker/lush John Boehner, was quick to get in front of the cameras and mic to addept and acknowledge that Obamacare was now "the law of the land" and that it was time to move on.
Now, the ones that are genuinely trying to apply the Constitution to their law making...especially for repeals...are met w/ mockery, insults and even threats by the media and the DC-machine. These are the members of the Freedom Caucus. Their only active and open supporters in DC is Judicial Watch and the ACLJ (thank God, at least!)
Now, back to those RATS first mentioned. Make no misake, their motivation is, imo, twofold: 1. Get the USA within the EU/UN's control. Hence the sabotage; and 2. GET RICH by the progressive lobbyists on K Street and, of course, including Wall Street, Silicon Valley and George Soros $$$$.
Progressive money buys A LOT of crooked candidates and judges, instant-protestors (Antifa, BLM, Code Pink, etc), illegal voters (including "pardoned" felons) and violence. Imo, we're living within the birth pangs of worse times to come. These "fixes" that the Rs actually managed to get through...thanks to DT and the voters...are just TEMPORARY at best. The tax reform has a sunset and the body of Obamacare is still in tact. The OVER spending continues to rise quickly. These small advances WILL disappear the very next time the Ds get control of at least two of the three houses in DC. And bloody revenge is HARD on their minds! They're gonna get us back for setting back the momentum and totally global-progressive policies and regs bestowed by Obama.
Sorry to say tha it is coming. The left had a hundred year head start. Now I "hope" I'm wrong. But, to quote an old TPP friend: "Hope is no kind of strategy".
"Hope is no kind of strategy".
Neville Chamberlain used "hope" and good intentions during WW2. The Colonists (Founders and Framers) of the New World didn't change their course by merely hoping for it and saying pretty words. It was ACTION and SACRIFICE. Do w/ that what you will.
Neither are mere good intentions.
about my only 2¢ on the Rosanne reboot drama... the sudden cancelation and the barely covert political censorship tied to the cancelation reminds me of the suddenly canceled Smothers Brothers show comeback back in the 70s.
She's a PIG, Larry, I just posted a blog w/ my half penny's worth. izall I hafta say about it.
Uh oh! My reply reads as if Roseanne is a PIG...all by herself. My gosh! What a mistake. I apologize. I meant to say BOTH Barr and JARRETT are PIGS!
I have a memory I can't confirm as accurate with internet searches, of Roseanne in her very early standup career eating a fried chicken leg during her act, being as disgusting as she could be- almost drooling while she ate, seemingly playing on that.
