So in grand fashion, with the economic pressure on our new president did what politicians over the ages have long resorted to, he reached for the bacon, promising a chicken in every pot and a pool in every back yard, a thousand bucks to every illegal alien and loads of money for every left wing program proposed over the last 40 years .It reads like a laundry list or a wish list resulting in no good deed going unpunished. So much for all that “change”. The only change so far is the price tag, which seems to be growing by leaps and bounds.
The rush to the extreme left is not as extreme as many talk radio commentators such as Rush Limbaugh surmise. Again I repeat it’s just a generational thing the folks who came of age in the 1970’s were never really invested in the free market to begin with. After all they never reaped the benefits or even saw it in action. They were the generation of bad disco, Watergate, hyper inflation, failure in Vietnam, stagflation, drug addiction, the hostage crisis and gas lines. Even the Olympics in Munich were tarnished by violence. These folks have spent there whole lives emotional scared from the trauma of growing up in the 70’s and now is there turn for revenge. Their goal is to punish everyone who has or has done anything and they view the Obama administration as the vehicle to make this happen.
