Are We Slippin Into Darkness Again?

Sitting here looking at the horrific weekly unemployment numbers and awaiting the scheduled release of the January unemployment figures tomorrow and looking at the DOW, currently dropping like a stone at over -200 and headed below 10,000 from the looks of things, a song started playing in my head. I can hardly even notice it, very faintly.

When I see the Obama administration going after Toyota to boost GM’s bottom line, the song gets a bit louder. I can almost hear it now. Boom, boom, boom.

When I see the massive and crushing debt Obama intends to grow exponentially, the bass cuts through in my head.

When I see Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Obama with their finger on a self destruct button labeled Cap and Trade, and another labeled Health Care Reform, the guitars cut in.

And when I think that we have just under 3 years left of this horrible Administration, and I am wondering how we will ever recover from this Obama Plague, the vocals and Harmonica cut in and I remember the song in total clarity now.

The band: War
The song: Slippin’ into Darkness
The year: 1972

The Vietnam War, Agent Orange, Hanoi Bombings, Watergate, racism. The whole world seemed ready to crumble.

Somehow, those dark days seem a lot brighter today.

Enjoy the flavor of what used to be.


I miss Don Cornelius.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
