About Me

Robert Earl is my name. Well, part of it. I live in the Great Smokies of NC. Aldo Leopold was a most influential writer to me. These days i do Occupy and work local politics trying to get good Democratic Party members elected. Watch my footprint on this blue-ball and check out chicks since i am quite single and available.

heh

I told that to a state appointed board one time. That the whole process we were enmeshed in reminded me of Soviet Russian Communism. That no matter what the people thought and no matter what the science said, there were just a few people whom, behind closed doors, were making all the decisions that affected millions of people in the region.

My side ended up winning. Or rather, we influenced the decision makers to change their minds, get out of the rut and make progress.

Reflecting on that and other more recent campaigns, it is reality that major decisions are made day in and day out by the 1%. It isn't communism in its purist sense, but Soviet style of government. Like Bush said, it would be great if this were a dictatorship, as long as he, Bush was the dictator.

America, i love you for what you could be and might have been!
