Funny thing .... I know a bunch of folks that got ‘laid off’ permanently yesterday and a relative of mine who owns a small business is downsizing yet again this week (now under 20 from 85 ... no work). Nobody ‘on the ground’ believes things are looking up ... unless they’re on the ground wallowing in unicorn road apples.

That is why these last election results are so puzzling to me; did that many people think things had improved over the past four years? I think it is more likely that they realized their only hope was to become a ward of the nanny-state, and vote for the parasite POS that would give them the most freebies.
Obama’s re-election was indeed cause for despair.
