Election digestion

My friend and Northern Alliance Radio Network colleague Mitch Berg summed it up much better than I ever could. And yes, I endorse the following:

So, Obama, Dayton and DFL voters: you got your wish.

So when your job goes away because a company moves to another state (and I know at least one major MN employer that's planning exactly that)? When your company decides to move its plant to Mexico, Canada or offshore? See this tiny violin?

Health insurance premiums going up 30%? Suck it up, lil' camper.

Tytler said "Democracy can only survive until the majority discovers they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury" - meaning "the minority". And that's just what happened tonight.

Imperfect as Romney was, he at least realized there was a fiscal cliff coming; between him and Ryan, there was at least a notion of how to deal with it.

Now? Unlike Greece, there is no Germany to come along and bail the US out. The depression that will follow will make the Great Depression seem like the Dotcom deflation.

The main order of business right now, if you're smart (and that rules out a small majority of our population as of tonight) is to get yourselves and your families ready for what's about to happen.
