Crisis! Catastrophe! A Disaster From Which We May Never Recover!

February 15, 2009

I was at Macy’s today, looking for a new sofa.

I had to wait 10 minutes to find an empty parking spot at the mall.

I remember my mom’s stories about growing up at the end of the Great Depression, how hard it was to find a parking spot for your car at the mall for secondary national holidays.

No, wait, instead she talked about how it was a special treat to take the mule into town maybe once a month to buy a bottle of 7-Up.

I’m not saying times aren’t tough, and that you shouldn’t prepare, but keep it in perspective–93% of the people in this country are employed. 95% of homeowners are making their payments.

The current President and Hillary Clinton are both students of leftist thinker Saul Alinsky. One of his “Rules for Radicals” was that community organizing types should make any situation out to be as bad as possible so that people are ready for socialist change:

They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution. To bring on this reformation requires that the organizer work inside the system, among not only the middle class but the 40 per cent of American families – more than seventy million people – whose income range from $5,000 to $10,000 a year [in 1971].

Don’t put too much faith in the fear-mongering of the Panicker-In-Chief. He’s doing it for a reason.

Have not yet found a couch. šŸ™‚

    Come to Minnesota. I was at Macy’s on Thursday during a big sale. At the Mall of America, which has parking for thousands and thousands of cars, maybe 15 were outside Macy’s.

    I wish we didn’t have spots available; like a ghost town šŸ˜¦
