US Mid-terms 2014

So the Republicans have won control of both Houses of Congress in the mid-term elections. Here wer go for yet another two years with no proper budget in the US... perhaps we'll even have another shutdown.

While the Republicans have been highly obstructive, Obama has been a disappointment to say the least. His only achievement of note? Obamacare and that's not all it's cracked up to be (there has been an increase in premiums for many). The Russians have Crimea, the Arab Spring has produced Islamic State and firearm ownership is on the increase.

Well at least it's a good time to make cannabis; more states are legalising it following ballots yesterday.
