Then again — given the players who are still involved in the game — it’s no wonder things aren’t any better.
My father was a teacher, so I know that teaching can be an all-consuming profession. Nonetheless, it’s the job that my father chose — as do today’s educators. There’s no involuntary draft.
Obama’s victory means four more years with no hope or change.
When I think about what the future offers, it reminds me of the last thing I said during my closing remarks at a 2008 debate for state representative in Massachusetts. I said: “If you like the way things are, vote for the incumbent… and don’t complain.”
It’s not news that far too many environmentalists prefer trees, animals and insects over people.
In 1962, environmentalist icon Rachel Carson — a government bureaucrat at the time — chose nature. She created a stink about the highly-effective pesticide DDT, and countless millions of children have since paid the ultimate price as a result.
I’m not sure we’ve seen a generational shift like the one we’re experiencing today. As far as my limited perspective goes, the next generation takes control and life goes on. However, things are looking quite different as this whole Obama phenomenon plays itself out. This incoming generation is exhibiting the humility of a lion in a field of goats.
This election is all about the “change” and “hope” they tirelessly recite, but can’t define. It’s all about their future. But what happens if they get their way and Barack Obama becomes the President of the United States? And even more ominous, what happens if they don’t get their way?
Things could get ugly on a grand scale.
