Roller Coaster

That pretty much sums up my week in a nut shell.
It has been crazy. I have gone through every emotion this week.....happy, sad, hacked off, drugged up (I'll explain later), hacked off again...and again....and again....confused and so on.

Obama won the election which is where a lot of my "hacked offness" came from. I honestly thought to myself the night before the election that there was no way....once people were in the booth...could they ever pull the lever for Obama. But, I, obviously was wrong.
I cannot understand how people can honestly feel comfortable electing a man that we know so little about. The news media did a great job avoiding the issues, the dirt, and the words actually used by B.O.
Key concerns:
1) His associations (Ayers, Wright, etc.)
2) Taxes - for those people that actually think they will not be affected by the tax increases, you are sadly mistaken. You had to have noticed how the tax increases mentioned went from those making 250k plus down to 200k plus, down to 150k plus.....that number will only continue to drop. And I don't know about you....but I don't like working 60 hours a week just to see most of that money pulled out of my paycheck and given to someone who is too lazy to work.

Not only taxes on personal income but on businesses as well.
1 of 3 things can happen - which none are good. Business will not be able to afford these tax increases so they'll a) pass them on to the consumer (no company pays taxes - it's all passed a long to us) b) businesses will shut down - meaning more job loss c) they will move over seas - where we'll have more job loss and be paying a premium to import their goods/services
3) Gun laws - enough said - I wish I had money to go buy every gun I could find:)
4) Abortion

But, you know what, there isn't anything we can do now but pray. Believe me...I hope and pray that Obama succeeds as president. It's obviously in the country's best interest. I hope and pray that what I think is going to happen - turns out to be false. My confidence in politicians in completely shot as is, so now all we can do is trust in the Lord and know full well that HE will deliver.

Any who - I'm done with politics - done with Washington - wish they'd fire EVERYONE up there and start from scratch.

Here's how the rest of my week went.....I only worked about 3 days this week. Thursday I had a dentist appointment with Jeff (it's still really weird for my brother to work on my toofs.) He did a great job......BUT....luckily for me, the tooth he was working on ended up having to be pulled - getting ready for an implant.
So the rest of the day thursday I was drugged up and looked like I got jacked in the mouth. I couldn't talk really....I drooled a lot...bled a lot....slept a lot....ate soft foods......and went back to bed. Friday it was pretty much the same thing. Went to work to catch up on what I missed the day before, left at 1 - went back to bed for a few hours......then it was time for dinner.

So, it's been a crazy week. Now it's time for bed meds are kicking in.
Goodnight people! God bless you and keep you.
