Small Town Values

The harangue about "small town values" at the Republican convention is offensive and does not ring true.

I've lived in Manhattan and I've lived in Gray, Maine, pop. 5000. In neither place was there a wall of agreement on "values."

Doncha love it that the former mayor of New York makes fun of Obama for being too cosmopolitan. And small town folks grieve over those New Yorkers who died in the World Trade Center while dismissing their friends and families by implying that "real people" are only found in small towns.

Here
's a great take on the subject.

Let us not think. Let us believe. Salvation will be ours in the form of a theocratic government with fascist corporate overtones and a hint of oppression.

God Bless America.
