  •  Reading lately about pre-Prohibition (3+ / 0-)

    era in Midwest.  Quite a few local breweries were forced to close and move to Illinois and Ohio when Righties rammed through their No Alcohol laws in Iowa.
    Guess what I'm thinking here is that we've always had a bunch of self-righteous Righties who want to rule the world.  Not enough to live the way they believe they should - they want/need to be in charge of the rest of us too.  
    Maybe it really is true about all this coming and going in waves.  Seems like it'd be just about time for that wave to head in the other direction, yes?  
    That's the hopeful thought.  The other one is that people really don't learn anything, and we just keep doing the same thing over and over.  That we're going to go back to the Age Of Robber Barons, do the whole Labor movement, Women's Rights, Civil Rights again.  
    Guess that means we're going to see an entirely new generation of Liberals/Progressives rise.  
    And that's a very good thing.
