I guess the first issue some hoopla I've been overhearing about the Cubs finally winning the World Series. The Red Sox had the so-called "Curse of the Babe," referring to the sale of Babe Ruth. They finally won the World Series, coming back from a 0-3 deficit, the first time that has ever happened. So, anything is possible, right? Nope.
First of all, the Cubs have to settle for a curse of a billy goat, not someone like Babe Ruth. Any idea as to the last time the Cubs won the World Series? Here is an illustration:
True, they did get into the world series in the 40s, so we nuked Japan to celebrate. But that has been it. The Cubs will not win the Word Series this year.
Cubs fans will not believe it. Think of it this way: it was not until the late 80s that the Cubs got lights installed and decided to play night games. Any idea what happened? No? I'll tell you: networks from all over the world came to cover it. Bill Murray sat in the broadcast booth, free. The biggest event in baseball history. Well, it was rained out in the third inning -- it wasn't even an official game. The Cubs will not win the Word Series this year.
THE NEXT DEPRESSION:
When all the fuss about Sallie Mae happened, I said this is just the beginning. Starting with Reagen, but reaching its culmination in Bush 43, every single measure taken by FDR to prevent another depression has been weakened or eliminated in order to "get the government off your back."
The Depression started with the policies of a prominent Republican, Herbert Hoover, who was recently quoted by John McCain:
After Hoover had his depression, FDR came along and adopted many of the policies advocated by Eugene Debs:
Since Debs was right, and since his ideas offended big business, he was put in prison by Warren Harding, the most corrupt President of the United States, at least until Richard Nixon came along, who held that honor until Bush 43 came along. Anyway, the last program in the FDR tradition, Medicare, came in the 60s and it, along with Social Security, would be given to the stock markets, like the one we have now, if George 43 had his way. Obama at least voted against it, McCain for it. right now, AIG has lost 90% of its value and there is talk of a bailout.
We don't need a bailout -- nationalize the damn thing. Nationalize Exxon-Mobile while we are at it. Nationalize every money sucking corporation on the Dow Jones. And be sure to nationalize Haliburton while we are at it -- that will keep us out of any future wars. Don't "privatize" what is working, nationalize what isn't.
Of course, they'd be after me if this had wider circulation, just as Harding did to Debs, but there is strength in invisablity. Who'd listen to that much common sense?
Besides, McCain has the answer: appoint a commission, just like 9/11.
This leads us to our final point, Obama's big mistake. We don't have to see Palin, explained below, or hear McCain quoting Hoover to know Obama's big lie. He said, "The American people aren't stupid!" Now let's face the truth: without that half of the electorate in love with Pain and devoted to McCain, the rest of us would only be normal.
The following was sent to me by one of your who had it sent to him. I don't know the source, but if you are and want credit, just comment. If you want it deleted, so be it.
Anyway, here it is:
