Howdy, pards.

More video fun. Putting together Clark's vid last week was fun, and I'll have another half-assed artsy music vid next week, but today we're back to the politics of class warfare.

And that's the crux of it all, isn't it? One group of Americans favors rules to make sure that all have a fair shot at economic security and advancement, while another thinks there should be no rules at all, so long as they are on top. And, despite the rhetoric, both groups love government, so long as it serves their agendae.

And one of those groups is most assuredly winning the fight.

I look at that chart, noting that mid-20th century sweet spot of increased opportunity and prosperity and remember again why, despite its failures and frauds, I support the Democratic party.

Anyway, do enjoy the new vid. The song is, near as I can tell, my most (illegally) downloaded cut, so someone out there may like it. Students cramming for history tests may get a boost from it, too.

I'll be trying to figure out some whoop do do launch for it next week, but for now, sit back, and enjoy 70 years in 3 minutes. Please let me know if I got anything really, really wrong.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
