After some elections I feel that the American people is a genius, other times I feel that the people is an idiot. I have mixed feelings this year because the GOP holds a forty seat edge in the House and a forty-five seat “majority” in the Senate.
But I’m happy and proud of the results at the top of the ticket. Folks in the “FIRE” sector (that is; finance, insurance and real estate) invested three to one in the Romney campaign. I see Obama’s win as a blow against plutocracy, rebuking the “smart money;” the “masters of the universe” who brought us the Crash of 2007.
