    I'm in MO and it's pretty intense here. I'm looking forward to tomorrow with hope and fear. Trying to focus on the hope.

    Can you hear me, Major Tom? I think I love you.

    Re: They are willing to destroy this country

    Hey so American friends, can someone explain midterms to me? Why vote in the middle of a four year electoral period?

    ...and, is the news good overall? Or just in a few states?
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    Hot Pickle!

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

    Different offices have different terms. The Pres is elected to a 4 year term. House Reps are elected to 2 year terms and Senators are elected to 6 year terms but at staggered intervals. An elections is held every two years but presidential elections are every 4. Any normal federal election where the presidency isn't in play is a midterm. The entire House and a third of the Senate are at stake. As for this midterm, Dems win the Hoise which means once the new congress swears in (early January), any major legislation needs bipartisan support or it won't happen. It also means that the House oversight committees are no longered controlled by Trump lackeys. The Senate stayed red (which is disappointing but was always a pretty likely result) so McConnel can keep rubberstamping conservative judges.

    Basically, yesterday was good but not as good I really wanted.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    I'm delighted about the House turn out. It made me happy and most of the measures for my state turned out the way I voted so that was great too.

    I can't wait for the day Mitch McTurtle is out of the Senate.

    Michigan has legal weed, a special committe to draw district lines, a voter's rights law, and a D for governor (finally).
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    also ,it looks like Trump is starting to panic about the mueller.

    Whitaker is expected to take charge of the Russia investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Whitaker has been openly critical of Mueller and the investigation and Democrats immediately called on him to recuse himself, just as Sessions had.


    Will trump make his stupid in the open?

    Trump Says He Won’t Turn Over His Tax Returns. It’s Not Up To Him Anymore.

    Can't wait to see where this goes.

    But that’s actually not up to the president ― according to the law, at least.

    The leaders of key congressional committees can ask the IRS for anybody’s tax returns. Republicans simply did not want to do so. Democrats said in October that they would ask the IRS for Trump’s returns if they regained control of the House, which they did on Tuesday night.


    see here.

    I think trump is starting to unravel,some of his moves now reflect fear on his part.
