Great Quotes

“Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” John Steinbeck

Election Reaction

My reaction to the elections is a bit delayed.  I guess I’m still a little in shock.  Needless to say I did not expect the outcome.  When I discussed it with Professor Levine at UT and he predicted a 50 seat loss in the house.  I REALLY thought that was impossible, I told him maybe 30 seats.  WOW was I wrong!  So, Renan, you were right and I was wrong.
I still don’t believe the American people have actually bought-in to the Tea Party agenda.
