There’s something happening here…

 

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear

                                                                        Buffalo Springfield

I can feel it, the anxiety turning to anger. No longer are people afraid of only losing their fortune; they now fear the nation is slipping away. Big government, diminished hopes, broken promises. And fiscal immorality.

People are taking to the streets. Grandma hoists signs. Working people who have never written to a letter to the Op-Ed page are showing up. Yelling, too.

Our  effete media calls them a ‘mob.’ Anderson Cooper labels them with venal slurs. Barney Frank lashes out. None of them listen; none pay attention to the message. And so it escalates.

I read this week the ‘Tea Party’ is now more popular than either the Democrat or Republican parties.

For the first time in my life I attended a protest. Yes, me. I’ve always trusted the government. I never belonged to a party, Just a regular voter and taxpayer. That changed last spring.

 

We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, now, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
Stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
