On Nov 5, I posted this:

O! What can I say.
That thing with feathers -- it did soar.
Let's soar some more, before we're forced to go down to earth and dirty ourselves playing with some mud, to make bricks, to find uses for.

This post attracted quite a few trolls, whose comments were up for a few hours at a time (the price I pay for being far away from home and not always in my hotel room)-- one claiming Obama is Jewish (confusing our poor readers in Texas even more), one that he is bipolar. I then no longer allowed anonymous comments, which made some people get five-second identities on Blogger to, for instance, claim that Obama is going to be first and foremost America's president.


As a result, I will now moderate all comments. Which means nothing -- everything will pass, except when you troll.

Of course, I'm also getting quite tired of blogging per se. There is no use to it, but not in the same delightful way there is no use to fiction writing.

Now that Barack Obama has won the election, one thing is certain... he will preside over the largest expansion of the government's role in the economy since the 1930s -- with enormous consequences for your investments.
This "New New Deal," as some Democrats are already calling it, may well have the same result as the original one: to turn a sharp, painful recession into a long Depression.

Will that set the stage for a GOP president in 2012 -- the way '70s stagflation under Jimmy Carter set the stage for Ronald Reagan? I doubt it. More likely, Obama will be able to parlay the hard economic times into a second term.

How? The same way FDR did… by blaming everything that happens on his watch on his predecessors. The worse things get, the more the Obamacrats will blame it on "eight years of Republican deregulation, tax cuts and greed," calling for even more government intervention as the solution.

And the media, of course, will back them up.
