Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that it was “well past time” for President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to leave office, as evidenced by a cholera epidemic and crisis of the health care system.
For the past 8 years I have been writing and prophecizing about the demise of our economic system and expressed my concerns about the mismanagement of the Bush administration and the ever-increasing record number of home foreclosures; these issues were ignored blatantly by national and state officials. In addition, I was besieged by many responders to my commentaries that I didn’t know what I was talking about, that the economy was fine and that there was no need for concern.
So, for all of those folks here it is: “I told you so!”
As my last post on this site, I am reminded of a song from my childhood from the movie The Sound of Music. Here is my shortened renditon as my final farewell so as not to break any rules or infringe on anyone’s copyright.
Regretfully they tell us
But firmly they compel us
To say goodbye . . . . . . to you
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good bye
I hate to go and leave this internet site.
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to you and you and you
So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen
I’d like to stay but I won’t use my name!
The biggest obstacle that President-elect Barack Obama faces in his quest to unite America comes from partisans on both sides of the political fence.
Some Democrats already bitch that Obama’s picks aren’t liberal enough. Republicans complain he is too liberal and independents still don’t know what to make of the first African-American President in this nation’s history.
