I've made bigger blue waves in a urinal...

My Blog is down for the moment, so let's do some Post-Election talk.... rambling actually. Or Train of Thought...

So - Hells yeah for keeping the Senate. There's no stopping our Judicial appointments now bitches! The Democrats better get out the life support for Darth Bader Ginsberg cause their powerless to stop Trumps Nominee's for the next two years. And the number of judges Trump has appointed, many for life terms, is freaking yuge. This is the sort of stuff that resonates for the next 30-40 years.

Not to mention we replaced several crappy Senate Republicans. (Suck it Flake.)

Is now a good time to mention that every single Senator who voted NO on Kavanaugh who was up for election this time lost? #KavanaughsRevenge should be trending...

What else..

Well, there is the House...

First off, to all the whiny Republican 'old guard' who couldn't stand Trump and threw in the towel and declared they wouldn't be running for re-election when the left/media start spewing this garbage about the BLUE WAVE coming... yeah - you assholes cost us the House.

The re-election for the House is something like 90-95%. So those 43ish House Republicans who didn't run, and their seats flipped - Good job douche-nozzles.

Second off, losing the house boosts Trumps re-election and Red Wave chances up significantly for 2020. Because after two years of awesomeness, now we are going to witness two years of childish whiny bitching from the House trying to suponea everyone and everything. Congress is going to be gridlocked over pettiness, and if Trumps Tweets prove anything, most Americans don't like pettiness from their politicians.

(Even if you and I think him verbally punching some liberal asshat in the face over Twitter is extremely satisfying.)

I take that back... most WOMEN voters don't like it. Because, like my wife, they tend to be more of the 'peacemaker' sort instead of the 'Bring it on turd burgler!' type.

So... the bad news.

Well, according to the stats - Millennials went hard left. Basically the big Republican voter block is the 40ish plus crowd and everyone younger banked towards Socialism. So we've got a shitty stretch ahead of us, even if we have a wonderful 6 more years.

In these 'kids' defense.. They've got bullshit degrees with huge loans, they can't afford a house down payment. They have the highest percentage of 'basement troll' status EVER. (They live with their parents).... AND society has babied the crap out of them, giving them participation trophies for nothing and telling them that they have worth without proving their worth. That ain't so. No one owes you jack or shit. EARN YOUR FREAKING WORTH.

I can see the appeal of Socialism to them. That's not an excuse, it's just a reality when our Education system fails so terribly to properly educate on why a Democratic Republic is awesome and Socialism/Communism/Collectivism is horrific.

Unfortunately, they're going to drag us down with them if there isn't a serious re-awakening in America.... which I don't forsee as long as the left controls public education.

Anyways. Long ramble, with no proof-reading. And I'm all jacked up on Monsters and Pre-Workout.

Well,

With the exception of the Border Wall Pres Trump has accomplished everything I voted him in for. It wasnt like Paul Ryan was a paragon of leadership.

The left has truly become unhinged and is letting their ugly show and it will probably only get worse. Letting their ugly show will only be a boone to Rethuglicans in 2020. I really hope Hillary tries to run again and tears the Dumbocrats apart.

Heard yesterday on NPR that 40% of African Americans voted for Trump and that 73% of white women did. Those are numbers that if kept or increased will insure the Dumbocrats are wrecked for quite awhile.

Great observations.

To your comment about the douchenozzles costing us the house my take is this is the cost of doing business with respect to the main task at hand, which is clearing out the rot in the GOP (Hello John Kasich you piece of shit I'm talking about you ..). It's why you don't let that rot take hold in the first place because, like cancer, when you need to rip it out you're gonna lose a lot of good along with the bad.

To your comment about millenials, well the kids have always been communists. We who came of age in the 60s and got to watch it up front and personal know this pretty well. Your comments about the numbers are well taken, but then this is how it was back then too. Nothing new, but you're right about it being a challenge and we are going to spend the next couple decades dealing with the fallout from this. And truthfully many of these punkass little bitches are probably beyond saving. On the bright side when they crash, and crash they will we can advertise them as what happens when you spend your first twenty years contemplating your own navels to the generation coming behind them. And to be honest we probably should just write them off, as the generation coming behind the millenials is the one we really need to focus on.

To being jacked up on monsters and pre-workout, sounds like morning time to me .

Republicans did not come out and vote.

They essentially voted against the tax cuts and improved economy, along with the brain dead persons who voted for democrats; democrats who vow to destroy all of their economic prosperity, brought by Trump.

I blame the republicans most for staying home and allowing this to happen.

It helps to remember much of the republican leadership does not support tax cuts or domestic economic prosperity, they just make noises like they do. The offshoring of American technology, industry and prosperity was and remains driven by republicans. Always has been, which is why the labor movement threw down with the demoqueers back in the day.

There are likely many reasons for the loss of the house but as Jim points out Paul Ryan should get much of the blame. He's earned it.

To be honest it would have been much worse if not for the Donald, and we did pick up seats in the Senate. We held what needed to be held, and that's a good thing. We get to watch Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of 'em remind everyone on a daily basis what lunatics they really are between now and the next election and that's a great thing. They're going to squeal like stuck pigs and none of their stuff is gonna go anywhere. We're gonna keep ramming judicial nominations down their collective little throats and there ain't shit any of 'em can do about it.

The current POTUS 'lost' 23 seats, correct?

By the picture above, the Mid-Terms was a giant success for Republicans and Trump. It irks me that Trump comes out and says it was a success and is mocked for it. But then, these are the same people who think that Popular Vote should matter for control of both Houses of Congress. -SMH-

Personally, I TOLD people I expected a Red Wave.

And it wasn't what I expected. I thought we'd take bigger percentages of both houses. But, essentially... A Red Wave slapped the Blue Wave down and mitigated the damage big time.

The millennial generation will be a big ass problem for us all in the next few years if we don't buttress for it now. They have proven themselves to be a whiney bunch and are quite capable of mischief and extreme violence as is any other generation. I certainly hate to "lose" an entire generation due to sloppy and/or new age bullschitt parenting, but here we are.
Personally, I find it next to impossible to deal with this bunch. Local Texas kids are one thing, and you can tell a country boy a mile away, and Thank God for a Country Boy, but these California Kids coming in here stick out like sore thumbs.
BMWs, Range Rovers, Priuses, Teslas, bullschitt haircuts, sunglasses doing everything on their heads except actually keeping the sun out of their eyes, and always, always, always needing to be first. Always. If they ain't first, then fukk you.
Here at my shop, it's usually fukk you. I'd rather work on a Chevy 2500 than a BMW 5 series anyway, so go fukk yourself.

I guess I just wish they'd just go back to where they came from and leave Texas for Texans, or at least those willing to adopt the right attitude, dammit.

And what irks me is almost 50% of Texans voted for a damned COMMUNIST.

Yep. All they do is kick their trashy labor down here. Put their asses on a drilling rig in the Gulf and sort this out.

Theyíre here too. Cali and NY. Some Massholes too. Calis you can tell because they got the low rider trucks with the small fat wheels sticking 1 foot outside the fenders.
And the rest of them love to suddenly just dart across 5 lanes of traffic at a 45 degree angle doing 70 mph, no warning, nothing, 50 ft before their exit. Thatís a Cali specialty. I hate those bastards and I hope they die slow, painful deaths.

Looks like the Democrats are trying to steal a couple of the Republican wins by recounting and 'finding' all the Democratic votes that weren't counted on election night. You know...

My guess is that something is going to give...

Florida Law says early and provisional ballots to be counted within 30 minutes of polls closing. Dems decided they’ll take as long as they need

The Dem chick involved in all this has been in trouble before. This is way, way past that, though

It ain't the voting that counts, it's the counting that counts.
