There has been a lot of discussion about the surprise, even shock, felt by ‘conservatives’ at the failure of Romney to win the presidency. Some of it, such as this article in the NYTimes today, has focused on the discomfort of right-wingers with the ‘new’ America.
Well, during the Vietnam War protest era, there was a popular bumper sticker directed at those dissidents: America-Love It or Leave It! Now, what goes around has come around, and I say to those guys in Montana and Wyoming who just can’t see where they fit into the new multi-cultural, irreligious, liberal-welfare-state Democratic America: Love it or leave it, and I’d prefer that you just get up and leave, period!

…I couldn’t stop myself. I don’t like to make fun of well-meaning people, but sometimes…
This letter was in the New York Times today, or rather, in the Soviet equivalent in…1929?
To the Editor:
Citizen Osterbrook knocks down the straw man of zero-emissions coal-fired power plants to prop up arguments for a path towards bourgeois endorsement of old, dirty, dangerous technology.
He is mistaken when he says that new energy needs cannot be met with clean energy sources alone. We must stand with our forward-thinking leader and comrade on this, and meet our new energy needs by commanding the technologies of the future.
Instead of perpetuating coal, let us instead become again that country that, when put to the test, built socialism in one country!
Wind and solar power can meet our new energy needs through technology available today. All we need is the political will to harness it. Naysayers like Mr. Osterbrook will leave us in the dustbin of history!
