Yippee! Yahoo! Yowza!

I'm linking this post to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday. The letter this week is "Y." Y is for Yippee, yahoo, and yowza.

It's Tuesday night, and the election is winding down. Romney gave a gracious concession speech, and I'm waiting for Obama to give his victory speech.

I try to stay away from politics as much as possible, but I'm in a celebratory mood.

If your politics agree with mine, then feel free to celebrate with me.

If your politics don't agree with mine, then I hope you can find a reason to celebrate somehow.

    1. I can certainly understand that too! It's a long, painful process.

    1. I must admit, the commercials didn't bother me. For one thing, I don't watch a lot of television. And when I do watch, it's only recorded programs so I can skip commercials. Yay!

      Those stupid robo-calls were driving me nuts though!

    1. Haha! That's a positive way to look at it.

      I'm always trying to teach my daughter how to handle things that don't go her way, because let's face it...life oftentimes doesn't go our way. I'll have to remember this in my arsenal of coping skills for her. "Hey, do your homework. It's only going to be an hour you're doing something you don't enjoy!"

  5. Can't say I celebrate with you.... I'm saddened by the division of our country and by the way so many people find it necessary to insult each other and their beliefs. I wish we could get past our differences and be truly united.

    1. I couldn't agree more. I'm hoping it starts with our politicians working together. While Superstorm Sandy was awful, one bright spot was seeing Obama and Christie working together and supporting each other. They put politics aside to work together for the greater good. We need more of that. I really think if the republicans went back to putting their moderates front and center--like it was during the Reagan years--we wouldn't have as divisive a country. Just my opinion, but I think it really would get us out of red state/blue state mentality.

      I agree that Romney was gracious. I hope people take his words to heart.

  8. I heard in our News in Belgium, that ALL European countries were happy that Obama was re-elected and 90 % of the whole world too ! I think that you made the good choice.

  10. I celebrate with you, Cheryl. But rather quietly as Mrs. Jim and I canceled our votes with each other. I think Romney was the best of any of the Rep candidates and a very nice man. But four years under him would have been a scary affair.

    Mostly, I want to keep the Affordable Health Care Act as I am a senior. I am tired of paying taxes for those people who use the public to pay for their health care at the emergency rooms and others that they stiff the hosptials for. It is us, the payers and tax payers that pay their bills.

    Many of these can afford insurance (my own daughter for one, she is against insurance companies) and the ones who can't then this law will help them pay for what they cannot.

    I also think that those making more than around $100k should be paying more taxes. At least until we get our country out of this horrible debt. That is partly why we are in debt, the taxes have been cut for the rich (to stimulate spending? Come on!!).

    Finally Romney hurt my feelings. I am not a deadbeat but have been doing lower paid jobs (U.S. Army five years, teaching 22 years, fixed retirement ($214/month) for NASA work 17 years) and so am almost on wellfare for retirement. Savings would keep me from that. But definitely we are in the 47% Romney trash talked about.

    I would have called him Garfield too but I am not very familiar with Garfield as I do not read him. And this was taken near Southampton, U.K. and I didn't know if England knew Garfield. So I just called him a yellow animal. Thank you.

  11. I'm just celebrating the quiet. My phone isn't ringing off the hook and that makes me a LOT happier!

    Jim's comment really hit a chord with me. I share his frustration with health care.

    Thanks for such a celebratory link!

    A+
