Week in Review: The Economic Detriment Package of 2009

"He's got yesterdays values, living in tomorrows industry ..." - Dropkick Murphys "Tomorrows Industry" from the album 'The Meanest of Times'

When I review the facts of what is occurring? I have a proposal to make.

I leave you with the lyrics to the Dropkick Murphys song: "Tomorrows Industry". Strangely appropriate as we are staring at another Depression, straight in the face.

Young Kids in Schools
Elderly Parents Living Under Your Roof
You Pay The Bills and You Pay The Price
You Don't Back Down and You Won't Play Nice
The Disgraced Values of the Company Man
Are Why you Fight And Sacrafice
Don't Bend or Break for Their One Way Rules
Or Run From Battles you Know You'll Lose

Chorus:
Greed is Blinding You
But We Can See
He's Got Yesterday's Values
Living In Tomorrow's Industry

They See Your Eyes, They see your face
But's it's your soul they wanna take
Yeah, welcome to the future it don't seem fair
But this is your struggle, the cross you bear
They know your pain, they don't think trwice
There's a dollar value on your life
You Don't comprimise and you don't break
Yeah, It's our principles at stake

Chorus:
Greed is Blinding You
But We Can See
He's Got Yesterday's Values
Living In Tomorrow's Industry

The Daily Outlook it's so bleak
Saving every dollar of every week
Living month to month, youv'e got to get ahead
but all the while falling deeper in debt

Chorus:
Greed is Blinding You
But We Can See
He's Got Yesterday's Values
Living In Tomorrow's Industry

The wright falls hard ib tge stabd up guy
The one you can count on you can rely
This is your future It don't seem right
But this is your battle, this is your fight
Something in this country has got to change
If wer'e ever gonna see those days again
Your Parents may have done it with just one job
But now we're working for less and twice as hard


And I have to tell you, I feel a very personal connection to the line: "He's got yesterday's values, living in tomorrow's industry" ...

Please. For the love of all that is holy. Stay safe ... and trade well.
