A retired power lineman and unabashed leftist, I refuse to be identified as "progressive" as the term has been co-opted by liberal Democrats. I never, ever had any illusions about Obama and it is my firm conclusion that to the degree "progressives" remain mired in "Obamaphilia," a genuine left opposition will forever spin its wheels. In '68 I and a buddy bicycled across the US, from Berkeley to Bar Harbor, Me. and managed not to suffer the fate of Capt. America and Billy. I like bicycles, don't like self-entitled, sanctimonious bicyclists; I ride Harleys.
