Only will affirm the truth behind the title of this thread.
You speak as if gridlock is a bad thing. When someone is trying to move things in a way that I feel is very wrong, if I can't turn them around, then at least I want to hold them where they are. With the current admin, I applaud the reps ability to achieve what you are terming gridlock. As least we aren't proceeding down the wrong path. Any good outdoorsman knows that when you are truly lost, the best action is to hold your position until help arrives.
