    Virginia Jeweler Closes Store for a Day to Mourn Obama's Reelection



    A Virginia jeweler incensed about the results of Tuesday's election has turned his storefront into a makeshift billboard, closing Lyons Jewelers for a day to protest four more years of President Obama.

    Lyons Jewelers in Bedford, Va., was shuttered on Wednesday, and six handwritten signs with political messages were posted in the windows. The largest read, "CLOSED: To mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us." Another vowed that the store "will reopen tomorrow to continue the fight against a president who seeks my demise." According to local ABC affiliate WSET-TV, people came to take pictures of the darkened store, posting them on Facebook. Many observers were displeased: One boy who appeared to be 12 or 13 remarked, "It's very childish."

    One customer responded with a sign of his or her own, taped to the glass: "I am sorry you feel this way!!! I do business I guess I will take it somewhere ELSE!"

    The man behind the messages is owner R.T. Lyons. In an interview with WDBJ7, the local CBS affiliate, Lyons sounded subdued and almost conciliatory, emphasizing his feelings of grief following Tuesday's result, rather than anger, and explaining that he feared some unspecified changes to the nature of American capitalism. According to Lyons, during Obama's first term, "I felt like I've been the fox at the fox hunt." Now, "not only is the fox hunt not over, it's gonna be four more years, and they're probably gonna add a few more dogs to the hunt."

    Yes, this is posted on the "mourning" site. I laughed so hard. Some of these people are really losing it. What they are really mourning is what they see as the white america they know disappearing...

    Didn't see the link at first.
    Watched it now.
    And I disagree, I doubt VERY much that a second term for Obama means the end of capitalism.
    Obama is VERY capitalist friendly, that notion is just fear mongering, conservative bs.
    Hibernation is a covert preparation for a more overt action.

    I can't remember exactly what he said but I think he said capitalism will no longer be the same under Obama. I don't know about that, but it's a point of view and more to my issue, there is nothing about that man that suggests that he has an issue with Obama's race.
    For guys like that, capitalism is about profit, less regulation and fair competition for markets and labour... and his is a reasonable view that Obama threatens that.

    I agree that ppl shouldn't be ostracized just because they don't like a presidents policies.
    A lot of democrats who are offended by ANY and EVERYONE who disagrees with Obama seriously need to check themselves.
    They sounding more and more like the bush supporters did during his regime/administration.
    Both parties are fulla hypocrites in my opinion, not to say there aren't exceptions to the rule....
