Neo: There’s a feeling in the air: hope and change on the right

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
And I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand
I’ve seen your face before my friend, but I don’t know if you know who I am
Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you’ve been
It’s all been a pack of lies

And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord
I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
Well I’ve been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord

neo-neocon notes:  There’s a feeling in the air: hope and change on the right As Professor William Jacobson has succinctly put it at Legal Insurrection:

We are used to losing institutions. The left is not. They are waking up to the possibility that the judiciary may be restored to the neutral role it should play, and would no longer serve as a liberal super-legislature.


That is one of many reasons that their reaction is so intense. These developments are as much a surprise to them as the election of Donald Trump itself, or their failure to drive him out so far, or his rising public approval rating. But the Supreme Court, which they thought would be theirs for the foreseeable future on Hillary Clinton’s election to the presidency, appears to be escaping their grasp. And it may escape it for a long, long time.

    April 15, 2009; the Yamamoto premonition.

    “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

    I was there. Titusville, Florida. In front of City Hall on US1. Fifty very ordinary citizens showed up to paint some signs and wave them at the passing traffic. I was amazed at the response. Maybe half the passing throng smiled or gave a thumbs up. One, just one, in a lowered pimpmobile yelled out “You lost, get over it”. The response? “We have not yet begun to fight!”

    I had a feeling, a hopeful dream really, that our long sad descent into the miasma of the state might be slowed, even stopped, or reversed. I’ve watched over the years since. Sarah Palin, our Joan d’Arc, was martyred. The calumny heaped upon the Tea Party was harbinger to the slander of Americans as clingers, as racists, as deplorables.

    But our revenge came at the voting booth. That’s the way we, the people, do things here. First the House. Then the Senate. Then the improbable orange man descended from his golden palace to be our Patton. Donny Two Scoops, the Tea Party’s revenge.

    I am at peace.

    @Ray, until he enacts a 90% cut in ALL gov’t employees and ALL taxes, it’s just business as usual as far as I’m concerned. Nothing Trump has done thus far has any effect on me at all.

    POTUS Trump began having an enormous effect on the economy and jobs beginning with his nomination at the RNC in mid-summer 2016. It is delicious to watch as the stiff-necked NeverTrumpers and anti-Trumpers are finally bending down from their arrogance and “True Conservative” utopias to concede (even a little bit) that he is creating positive change in America. They like to think they are just being tough customers, but what they don’t realize is their Johnny-come-lately attitudes and declarations make them look foolish to Trumpsters who — using another kind of intellect (because there is more than one) — anted up and went all in; unburdened by the fear of their peers’ opinions.

    I sympathize with you — my own politics are libertarian — but I’m sure (given what you’ve said here about how you make your living) that you’re aware of an old saying among engineers: “The best is the enemy of the good-enough.”

    Is Trump the best-possible person for the job of rolling back the Progressive nightmare we, our parents, and grandparents have been living in for the last century or so? Maybe not. BUT he’s good-enough for now, and maybe he can “pave the way” for others to complete the job of demolishing Leviathan.

    My two cents’ worth.
