Republicans seize Senate CNN - November 5, 2014
US mid-terms: Republicans win control of the Senate BBC - November 5, 2014
Though expected, this is a statement about how Americans feel about the failure of Congress in recent years and Barak Obama's Democratic party. Some people voted for their favorite candidate while others voted simple to make a statement about needed change. As always after an election night there will be cheers and tears today.
I was out most of yesterday enjoying the beautiful weather. Along the way I met my neighbor Bob who asked if I voted. He is my age and always opinionated. I quickly told him I no longer vote, that reality has an agenda, and I blogged that no one should be coerced (bullied) by the opinions of others. I understand that the US is supposed to be a democracy, but nothing is as it seems which we are learning as time and technology reveal the truth. I walked away before he could give me his 3D opinion. Does Bob understand we live in a hologram? He's not programmed to.
I spent the past week watching seasons 1 and 2 of the TV series The Newsroom before it airs its final 6 episodes beginning Sunday. Season 2 ended with the 2012 presidential election and the issues surrounding the Democrats and Obama. Jeff Daniels is brilliant as news anchor Will McAvoy, a Republican, whose views on ... everything make total sense perhaps allowing him to know that people are not Democrats nor Republicans, but we all want the same thing - freedom. The party system seems antiquated after 200+ years. It will be interesting to see if the show addresses ebola and other current issues as The Newsroom rolls into its final season and 2014 its final weeks. It's all about The Program.
And now people will turn their attention to the presidential race of 2016 highlighted by the Clintons ... Aargh!
If relationships still baffle you - here's the scoop for November - a little Scorpio - a little Sting. Someone in the relationship is suddenly triggered to tell their partner it's over. Of course we know this means their programming has ended for this relationship and underneath it all they been thinking about leaving for a while perhaps keeping it under wraps. Just as you're paying attention to the changes in weather and other things in your life ... so too should you take a few minutes to focus on your relationship.
