I heard a great joke today! If pro is the opposite of con, than isn't the opposite of progress, congress? Ha! Ha! It has already been interesting to see how President Elect Obama is taking control before he is inaugurated. In January we will again be a country dominated by the Democratic party. It will be fascinating to see if it makes any difference at all. It needs to, and I believe that America is hopeful that we will see 'CHANGE'! Historically, however, (at least since 1968) we have become a country of divided government where we like to have one party in the executive branch and another that controls Congress. We will have to wait a couple of years. Only time will tell, but we may have hit a new era in politics! Hooray!

We do live in interesting times. I was listening to a report this morning about the privatization of the federal government that has happened over the past 30 years. It will be interesting to see how the Democrats try to bring us out of recession without the major government agencies of the New Deal era.
