Once a member of the Bush Dynasty gets a mandate, does Fox News bother with any debates about what the voters meant by their decision? When Fox decrees, does any other team in the Journalism game dare to risk being labeled "conspiracy theory nutcases" and deviate from the norm established by Fox?
A promise not to make any new political predictions doesn't mean that we won't occasionally make snarky remarks such as noting that President Obama seems to be sanctioning the closure of places where medical pot is available and that Occupy protests are getting the same swift reaction that student anti-war demonstrations got in 1968 from the governor of California and then asking: "Does that prove that Obama is a Reagan Democrat?"
Is there irony in the fact that Occupy Protesters tents were removed from public parks, but in the travel section of the April 29, 2012, edition of the New York Times, an article by Elaine Glusac suggested using a web site named Campinmygarden to find places in Great Britain to rent urban space where tourists could pitch their tents during the Olympic games?

In the Thirties atmosphere of class struggle, some wealthy people voiced the opinion that if a homeless person were on fire, the swells wouldn't urinate on them to put out the fire. Would it be an example of sadism if people condoned (symbolically) urinating on a worker struggling with payments for a house that is "under water"?
When it was discovered that banks were using improper procedures for home foreclosures, did any court issue an immediate injunction on additional foreclosure proceedings or no? Perhaps in all the excitement, the banks have lost count of how many foreclosures they made. Was it 500,000 or was it 600,000? Now you have to ask yourself another question. "Doe it matter?"

Now the disk jockey will play Max Frost and the Troopers' song "Shape of Things to Come," Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz," and (from 1966) the New Breed's song "I've Been Wrong Before." [If W. C. Fields were still alive would he say: "A man's gotta believe in something and I believe "I'll Have Another" will win!"?] We have to go to National Free Comics Day, a Cinco de Mayo celebration, and place a bet on a real horse race. Have a "frisked for weapons" type week.
