Gee, it sure sounds good. Unfortunately it amounts to nothing more than Big Talk with nothing to back it up. Similar threats have been mumbled by millions of victims of playground bullies, but the simple truth is they're still too scared to fight back when the bully takes their lunch money again. So they resort to more mumbling, maybe even at home before a mirror so they can see how mean they look when the bully isn't around.

If nothing else, though, it makes us feel a little better about ourselves if we can pretend we have a modicum of control over the political issues which affect us all. Of course, it doesn't actually change anything - after all they ARE the bullies, and so they can still do whatever they want without fear of reprisals.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and make a prediction concerning next November's election:

We will elect either Democrats or Republicans to fill every available seat, and nothing will change, except to make things worse for the rest of us. At least 90% of all incumbents will retain their positions, and the American people will sit in their living rooms wondering WHY nothing has changed.

Look - I never claimed to be a modern-day Nostradamus; I just said I was going to make a prediction ...

Thanks Jim, very happy to have you commenting again! You're probably 100% correct. One reason why I'm looking forward to third party candidates instead of the same old name brand parties who have their feet in our backs shoving us into the abyss.
