There’s Something Happening Here

by Mary Laney - August 12th, 2009 - Chicago Daily Observer

“There’s battle lines being drawn. Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong…”

Washington’s attacks on the protesting people have, in the words of Admiral Yamamoto, awakened a sleeping giant – Middle America. Average Americans have watched as companies closed, unemployment grew, and once-busy stores turned into boarded-up empty spaces. They’ve seen their retirement accounts evaporate. And, in the midst of this, as President Obama told the nation that they would have to make some sacrifices, they’ve watched this President plan to take his family to a multi million dollar estate on Cape Cod for the summer. They’ve watched Congressional members travel to far away places to snorkel under the ruse that they’re investigating climate change. They’ve watched the House attempt to tuck into a defense budget 500 million dollars for eight luxury jets for their own use. And they’ve noticed that, while they’re being told to accept a public option health plan, the President, members of Congress and all federal employees will continue to enjoy a health care plan that gives them private insurance top of the line coverage all paid for by them, the American taxpayers.

“Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep…”

This is a very interesting article. Published in the heart of Obama's power base, Chicago, and using the terminology of the left - it talks about the reality that American people do not like to be conned. And that is what they are starting to realize "Fishy" Obama is doing.

Like many others I have never been a fan of music by Buffalo Springfield, so it is truly ironic that an article woven around their famous anti-war song can stike such a supportive chord among so many who are not anti-war, just pro-American.
