The poor, the needy, the greedy, the rich, have spoken loudly and clearly, electing Barack Obama for another term as president of the United States. And for good reason.

He hasn't finished the work he set out to do because of a do-nothing, Republican-controlled Congress. But worry not, the Republican-controlled Congress will either have to shape up or ship out. No doubt in my mind, they will shape up.

If this Congress wants things done, they will have to work with the Democratic Senate, and that's good for Americans looking for progress.

Donald Trump had ideas about using his money to run for president. Good thing he didn't try. He would have taken a whooping, just as Mitt Romney did.

Big money was behind Romney, to no avail. Americans all over the USA have sent a message to people of wealth: The United States is not for sale.

To all of you who supported Obama, thank you from the son of a coal miner and former steelworker.
