New Socialism

The DOW couldnt get much worse but right now it's trying very hard to do just that. Investors are losing faith. And more and more, government involvement, such as the multi billion dollar bailout, is starting to smack a little of socialism.

It's a Free country. We can be socialists if we want to.

With the Presidential Election closing in, there is a great deal of fingerpointing and mudslinging going on. Either way, the government is bigger and more self empowered than ever before.

It brings to mind a song I remember from Pink Floyd's, 'The Wall.' My thoughts are to the side.

Mother by Pink Floyd

Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb? (Gosh I hope not)
Mother do you think they'll like this song? (They did. I did. Still do.)
Mother do you think they'll try to break my balls? (Yes.)
Ohhhh.. Ahhhh.. Mother should I build a wall? (Don't we always? Haven't we already?)

Mother should I run for president? ('Change' the 'Country First.')
Mother should I trust the government? (No.)
Mother will they put me in the firing line? (Without hesitation. Then Oliver Stone will make a film about it.)

Ohhhh... Ahhhhh.. Mother is it just a waste of time? (It's Life. It's not a waste of time.)

Hush now baby don't you cry. (Good Advice. Bad Timing.)
Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true (Finally. Honesty.)
Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you, (It's called Propaganda.)
Mama's gonna keep you right here, under her wing, (That's called...Control.)
She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing, (You can talk... but you can't Act.)
Mama's gonna keep baby cozy and warm. (Trust Her...)

Ohhhh... Babe,
Ohhhh... Babe,
Ohh... Babe, of course mama's gonna help build the wall.

Of Course. All in all...we're all just bricks in The Wall.
