Post Election Scare

After observing the post election elation from most media outlets and the relative lack of concern of most people in the U.S., Ol' BC's world tilted suddenly. I actually found myself agreeing with FROMA HARROP.

I don't actually recalling this ever happening in the past, although I must admit I don't read her on a regular basis but do more than just occasionally. She is a genuine nutcase - nearly always on the socialist side of any issue. Big government all the way. Nothing leads one to believe that she would have any appreciation for moderation. Now I find myself in agreement with her.

I guess the possibility exists that she has seen the light.

Whatever a new President Obama and his supercharged Democratic majorities owe
labor can be paid in other ways. The ridiculously named Employee Free Choice Act
really is disturbing and undemocratic — and can be easily caricatured as such by
the Republican opposition. It is also bad PR for unions. If they have so much to
offer, why are they afraid of a secret ballot?

While Harrop may be on the money on this issue, it's way too early to assume she's is drifting towards the center politically. It does however make you pause and take a good look when you find yourself in agreement with her.

Just a thought.
