In my travels, in real life and in cyberspace, I've been called everything from a member of the Taliban for supporting the SSPX, to a liberal for liking the Liturgia Horarum and particular parts of the New Mass. I've seen the same confusion of labeling on a large scale between various religious groups, publishers and parishes to question the reality whole "Novus Ordo v. traditional" bit.

I'm happy to call myself a simply Catholic and be done with it. To some this might seem like a cop-out, and maybe it is. But keeping an eye on current developments, the more I am convinced that we all better close ranks pretty soon before the social, political and economic stuff hits the fan. I have a feeling - and maybe it's just a feeling - that within the not too distant future a lot of stuff is going to go down. I want to shake people sometimes and tell them to stop worrying about about stupid things like the Sign of Peace at Mass or holding hands at the Pater Noster. Start worrying about things that matter. Stop worrying about if they used guitars at your latest Mass, and start caring about the number of Catholic kids who kill themselves, the problem of pornography amongst Christian men, the ambivalent attitude we believers have towards the poor, the abandonment of the elderly... SOS! SOS! The ship's going down! Start praying your breviaries, start praying your Rosaries, give a bum $20, turn off your TVs and read your Bibles, visit the abandoned. SOS! SOS! The stuff is going to hit to fan soon! Be prepared! SOS!...

To be fair....Im with you on that whole statement.
