They Did It

Well, Hope-n-Change got his way. Remember the third Chinese curse; "May you find what you are looking for." November will be interesting. November 2012 even more so. I'm still not clear exactly what passed (and neither is anyone who voted for it), but at least it looks like it was a straight vote on the Senate bill, not some un-constitutional parlimentary trick. The "fix" bill looks to be an even bigger fight than the bill itself, so we may as well plan on living with the Senate bill. And I still want to know how a $1 trillion bill reduces the deficit. My remedial math skills must be slipping. Or at least somebody's remedial math skills are.

We are getting the government we voted for, and we are getting it good and hard.

Debbie is in Michigan with her mom. I just got a call from her; she was just getting to the house after spending the night at the hospital. Her mom has still not slept more than a few minutes at a time, which is starting to concern everyone. Physically, she is doing fine and is pretty much where she ought to be. She is able to move around and has been getting out of bed routinely. There were rumors that she will be moved back to CCU where they hope to get her on a routine schedule that includes sleeping at night. Her last stay there didn't go so well, but maybe this time will be different.

Work is completely dead. Which explains why I'm doing this from work. I have a couple returns on hold that need to be followed up on and one or both may even get sent through. I have another return that was completed weeks ago and has been sitting here waiting for the wife to "have time" to sign the damn thing. People need to figure out the difference between being important and lacking basic time management skills.

I'll probably post more after work, unless I decide to start another geeky movie marathon.
