  •  Y'know, I can feel for the jewelry store guy. (3+ / 0-)

    The day GWB won his second term, I had to attend a freaking "Seven Habits" seminar that my boss had insisted we all sign up for.  I was in deep, deep grief and I was supposed to be making happy-smarmy-management talk about maximizing my human and business potential.  When I was supposed to share some kind of happy-talk, I burst out with "I can't think about that right now.  I'm too upset about this election.  I feel that history will judge my country harshly for this day."  Everyone stared at me like I was some kind of two-headed freak.  

    And, better than most wingnuts he seems to have some level of acceptance that the election was legitimate and that  elections have consequences:

    "He has every right to get his agenda done now," Lyons said. "He's been put in by the people and that's what he should do."   .... He worries that Obama will raise taxes on the wealthy people who patronize his jewelry store.
    Of course, wealthy people were taxed to a level that would currently be considered to the hilt, during the pre-Reagan years, and I never heard that it kept them from buying jewelry.
