A New Era in Divided Gov't

The people have spoken, and we can safely say that we are all better for it! The democrats have taken power in the House of Representatives and are on the brink of claiming the Senate. Donald Rumsfeld is finally out! And Cheney has been rebuffed by Bush for the first time publicly! What difference one night and a humiliating defeat makes! For the first time the President seems humble and willing to be bipartisan(like he has any other choice). The tone of the President's noon press conference was very subdued, though still defiant when it came to Iraq. The Republicans seem shocked back into reality and their reign, dictatorial at times, is at an end. A new era of divided gov't is about to begin, and it could not have come at a more urgent time. The american people have taken their country back from the radical right, the neoconservatives, and the evangelicals. With the resignation of Don Rumsfeld and the rebuffing of Dick Cheney (who did not want Rumsfeld gone and then wanted another idealogue to replace him) by the president, the neoconservative movement is all but done, at least for a good while. Bush has found independence and freedom himself at the hands of an overwhelming Democratic victory. Ironically he brings in Robert Gates, former CIA director and a Bush 41 team member, in what could possibly be a merger between Bush 41 and Bush 43 policy. All in all, some will say that "father ultimately knows best". How funny it seems that Bush 43 has to go back to daddy and his team to help him get out of yet another mess. The return to a more sensible foreign policy seems at hand. The neocons are dead in the water as the President faces a more lonely future than he has in the past. He will have to depend more on his judgement than on his advisors', whose ideology has been flatly rejected by the people. Some think this is a scary thought, and it very well could be, but no scarier than if Cheney and has neocons were to run policy. At least there is opposition with power to say, NO NO NO! Let the '08 presidential games begin!

In this connection, I cannot get away from the thought that I regret this disbursement.. The substitutes were red jeans, which, while they did not well match his court costume, were better able to withstand the old man's abuse, for if, in addition to his frequent religious excursions astride his beast, there ever was a man who was fond of sitting down with his feet higher than his head, it was this selfsame Elder Brown.. This neglect is really harmless; however much the emotions of the child's spirit may be stirred, they find the approach to consciousness rendered difficult, and that to movement blocked in consequence of the state of sleep.. Quoene sit historia Reformationis in Ungaria? quoth Haliburton, after some thought. Edward Morland felt as if he could say, Had I three ears I'd hear thee.. The next morning her story was that during the night she had been on the sea, thus continuing the interrupted trip.. He was got out at last, half coaxed, half hustled; and the gentle public only half understanding what had been set forth thus unexpectedly, made quite a pretty row of it.. It would be impossible to do this without passing directly in her range of vision, and he did not intend to try to avoid it. There's not a single mirror left in the house! she moaned.. Physicians dealing with purely physical cases have begun to take into serious consideration the mental factors which have predisposed a patient to certain ailments.. It is because they make him too far-sighted, perhaps, interrupted Prue quietly, as she took the silver soup-ladle from the sideboard.. He opened it in the fewest possible words, and said other gentlemen were present who would entertain them better than he.. Only one who really analyzes dreams, that is to say, who pushes forward from their manifest content to the latent dream thoughts, can form an opinion on this subject--never the person who is satisfied with registering the manifest content (as, for example, Naecke in his works on sexual dreams).. Both writers on the whole may be said to have lowered the standards of American literature, since both worked in the surface of life with theatric intent and always without moral background, O.. Where, for instance, a chieftain has been urged through a dream to engage in a bold undertaking the success of which has had the effect of changing history, a new problem results only so long as the dream, regarded as a strange power, is contrasted with other more familiar psychic forces; the problem, however, disappears when we regard the dream as a form of expression for feelings which are burdened with resistance during the day and which can receive reinforcements at night from deep emotional sources.. Uncle Billy leaned blankly back in his chair.. The singing went forward fitfully. This danger is released through the full sway of the dream process.. Hotchkiss was here seized by one of those important and inconsistent rages which occasionally betray the habitually cautious and timid man.. But shouldn't it be the other way round ? This inversion obviously took place in the dream when Goethe attacked the young man, which is absurd, whilst any one, however young, can to-day easily attack the great Goethe...
