"Things could be worse!"

... my neighbor would reassure me during the early days of the Great Depression. No matter how bad things got, he would trot out that saying.

And -- you know something? -- He was RIGHT!  -- Things got worse!

~Will Rogers, supposedly. I do recall reading of him saying something like this, but have been unable to confirm it through google. But, "Life's too short!" I'm gonna stand by my recollection.

Our nightmare has now been renewed and there's nothing for it but to survive it.

I'm removing a lot of posts that concerned the debates, as their "sell by" date has expired.

One post I am not removing is Criminally negligent manslaughter ... , my indictment in which I accuse President Barack Obama of needlessly allowing four Americans to be killed, while neither sending in a support and rescue mission nor allowing anyone else to do so.

My original intent was to take down that post when Obama left the office of the Presidency, which I fully expected to occur on Sunday, 20 Jan 2013.

BUT, I've heard that God answers all prayers; sometimes the answer is NO!

I suspect that, a reply from HIM would be ...

"Some of you Republicans got into a snit over Romney not being conservative enough for you and either sat out the election or wasted your vote on 3rd party candidate Gary Johnson. For whatever reasons, you gave Romney fewer votes than McCain got four years ago. And now, you come crying to ME over what's just happened?!!! This is YOUR mess to clean up. Give me a call when you feel up to doing your part."

So, it would appear that Obama's leave-taking has been postponed for up to four more years.

On reflection, my original intent for that post mentioned above still sounds like a plan, so its removal has also been postponed for -- oh, I don't know -- say up to four more years?

As it's not practical to keep it at the top for all that time, I've replaced my header (just below my site's main picture) with a link and invitation, that will be promenent on any page of my blog.

I'm not going to let this go.

Back to God ...

HE might continue ...

"If you think I'm so unforgiving, you might consider this tender mercy I've bestowed upon you. I did let you hang onto the House, so that on Inauguration Day, 20 Jan 2013, you will NOT be presented with this as Speaker of the House ..."

"I wouldn't do that to anybody. Even the guy below feels remorse for having inflicted that upon you before. So, STOP WHINING!  And get on with it."

"So, could things really be any worse than they are now? Oh, you betcha!"

Update 08 Feb 2013 - I HAVE removed the "Crimially negligent" post I mentioned above, for reasons cited in "Do what you have to do."
