Bhairitu, thinking about my family some more: rich people want to be hyper rich 
and they think Republicans will help them achieve that. I think that's the big 
mistake they make.

     The vote was reactionary.  California had a very low turnout because 
people were so disillusioned.  Those who voted Republican thinking they would 
fix things will learn differently over the next couple of years.

     Right, but in terms of the number of votes that were needed to bring the 
Republicans back into power, we're talking about more than a handful of 
billionaires. It's all the millionaires down the street who voted the 
Republicans into power.

          I'm not talking small business rich.  When we say "rich" these days 
we want to dispense with the clumsiness of saying "super rich" or "uber rich" 
etc.  Intelligent people know what we mean when we say "the rich" and that we 
don't mean the millionaire down the street.

    Bhairitu, my Dad and stepMom grew up in the Depression. My Dad started 
working  for his Dad when he was 16, didn't even finish high school. When I was 
little, we were lucky if we got 5 cents for a popcicle. What I'm saying is that 
I think the  extravagance came later and I think people who grew up in the 
Depression and then worked hard,  feel like they deserve "the good life" now. 
Where I see people a little spoiled are my sister's kids. They're in their 
early forties and late thirties, grew up  really comfortable, wearing expensive 
sneakers, driving expensive cars from age 16, etc. Heck, we wore Keds and I 
learned to drive in a VW.

          Capitalism is like candy and the rich  like spoiled kids.  They just 
want more and more candy.  Hence they get fat and cranky  and want their way 
all the time.  What we need to do is take away their  candy from them and let 
them dry out.  Otherwise they become a complete drag on  society.
 
 Free enterprise is not a bad  idea about capitalism run amok is very  
dangerous.  Sometimes you just have to  shut things down and spank the 
miscreants.

     Wayback, I've read Klein online  and found her to be a compelling  writer. 
But when I think  about my Dad and stepMom, staunch  Republicans, I bet they 
never  even heard of Silent Spring or Rachel  Carson. Even though my Dad's a 
nature lover. Mostly what they know  is being small and successful  business 
owners. They're gonna  choose capitalism over climate  every time. My guess is 
most  Republicans will simply label Klein a  liberal and not pay much  
attention to what she has to report.      From:

        An important new book just came  out about capitalism and climate  
change:  This Changes Everything:  Capitalism vs. the Climate, by Naomi  Klein. 
 But the converted, anti SUV folks  are probably the only ones who will read 
it. The review in today's NY  Times called it the most important environmental 
book since  Rachel Carson's Silent Spring.   (I gave a book report on Silent 
Spring  in high school, so it made an impression).  I will have to pop an 
antidepressant  before reading Klein's book, which I intend to do as soon as 
the library  gets  it.  I think the gist is that  capitalism as we know it 
cannot  continue if we intend to deal  with climate change.
