For What It's Worth

A classic anti-establishment song that is today just as applicable, or maybe even moreso, than it was in the late 1960s.

Take it to the streets on April 1.

OK, so...was that Peter Tork (The Monkees) introducing the band? And Stephen Stills was a member of Buffalo Springfield, right? Wow, nice blast from the past.

Looks like we're going back into turbulent times, only this time the battle lines being drawn are between Dems and Republicans. The administration is taking a hard turn to the left, much to the chagrin of those of us who thought BHO would lead as a centrist. It's going to be a tough 4 years. Wish I had a crystal ball to see how it's going to turn out.

Yeah, I think that there will be enough of us to abandon both parties that a new party will emerge, likely some version of a libertarian party that will put our Constitutional Rights and Freedoms ahead of some party power plays and all the other garbage that has been in the forefront in the last 20 years. Government BY the People FOR the people, but not some communist/socialist collectivist bullshit that stomps on individuals for the sake of the "general welfare."

I'm trying to avoid making predictions, but my crystal ball does show me some of the possibilities.... There are a lot of people who are thinking and talking about secession options (not just way-out-there-wackos either) in the case that Obama takes his (and Pelosi's) socialist agenda too far.

But there are other things happening too like the "New Tea Party" protests. I always saw Obama as a socialist whose primary goal is to "redistribute the wealth", and everything he has done so far confirms that view. That is NOT what America is about. Well, I could go on forever about it.
