Responding to a recent Nightline question about our economy, the President said he believed (quote): "all the choices we've made have been the right ones."  Let's see, crippling debt, unemployment, taxes, regulations, and big-foot government. Yep, he nailed it.  And speaking of dislike for our nation, "never let a serious crisis go to waste," sayeth the Gospel according to Rahm.  Thus, the American Nazi Party, Communist Party USA, Socialist Party USA, and other fans of complete central-control, are now associated, in varying ways, with the Occupy Wall Street crowd.   Members of the former-ACORN, now New York Communities for Change, also seem to be involved with that Puff The Magic Dragon camporee, as all of those anti-America clusters strive to deliver us from the nagging-inconvenience of freedom.  One sleep-over leader, disillusioned by free-loaders, made a far more expansive observation than she realized. Said she: "There's a lot of takers here, and they feel entitled."  Welcome to our national reality.  The entitlement-mentality.  Increased takers, decreased makers.  Explaining a core-cause fueling the "occupiers," D.C.'s political leadership, and lib-seduced big-media, the brilliant Dr. Thomas Sowell stated: "I think we're raising whole generations who regard facts as more or less optional."

Not only facts, but traditions.  The principal at an elementary school near Boston, emailed her staff objecting to Halloween and Thanksgiving, the latter due to perceived pilgrim misdeeds, centuries ago!  Once again, if the radicals don't undo us, absurd, over-bearing, pointless PC will.  The debilitating disease of political correctness remains a destructive epidemic.  For now, despite those rascal-pilgrims, may area kids experience a fun and safe Halloween, and our families enjoy a meaningful Thanksgiving to come.
