‘Tis a day to kick back and catch one’s breath. The most expensive election in history is over and the wealthy have not yet bought themselves a government — though it was very close and don’t think for a moment their efforts will end with this election. People in other countries look at the amounts of money that went into the political toilet in this election and think what immense good could have been done with it and they are sick. I am too. It’s positively obscene.
But the right man won the highest office in the land and the people did the right thing, barely. Let’s hope that now since he need not worry about another election he will have the brass to stand up against the wealthy fat-cats and do the right thing — especially on the environment which can be regarded as job #1 when tied to the economy: clean energy can create millions of jobs and help the economy recover: it’s win/win. Keep your fingers crossed.
