Some of you may actually believe the hype lathered on by self-serving politicians that our economy today is the worst since the great depression. This is hooey of course just like everything else you hear a politician say as he tries to divert you from the tax burden he stuck you with. We have had several ‘bad ‘economies since the depression and I am not thinking about the 90’s. Remember that we are not just cantankerous coots, we are cantankerous OLD coots. We lived through the oil embargoes, odd-even gas buying days and sanctimonious Jimmy Carter. So just to help you keep some perspective in these dire days, listen to this rant from the good old days of 1976. Pardon the French subtitles.
