Two More Years ...

Well, it looks as though since November rolled around the country has begun to awaken to what many of us thought had been obvious for a long time. Even the president's rose-colored glasses can no longer hide the insanity of the situation we've put ourselves into. And yet still we're hearing that policy change will be slow and phrases are used that might translate as "I'm going to look at all this new input -- but I'm gonna do it my way."

One can't help but wonder if those of us who are retirement age will ever see the current mess cleaned up. I take heart that the powers in the nation's capital are now divided between two parties so neither gets free rein.
