  •  "When will they ever learn?" (7+ / 0-)

    I remember sitting in a circle of like-minded DFW's in the late '60's, strumming a guitar and singing that old antiwar anthem.  That was during my teen years--the beginning of my life.

    Now I am entering my twilight years (damn!) and NOTHING HAS CHANGED--we are still living in Ike's military-industrial hell; in fact it seems worse than ever.

    I worked for, donated to, and was a delegate for Obama--in hopes that he would be our progressive savior.  Now it is becoming apparent that we were Fooled Again; that he is just another corporatist dead-set on bankrupting the country so corporate criminals can continue to suck us dry with their wars of aggression, while domestic needs go begging even worse than they were then.  I am depressed and disgusted--and angry and tired.

    "When will they ever learn?"  Never, I fear.

    "Listen, son, said the man with the gun/There's room for you inside."
