(Please note this is fiction. Or is it?)
Warm, wet, and welcome rain today. Glad to see the recent droughts are finally breaking.
Nothing but bad news on the radio again today. Europe has relapsed into recession as we have over the past year, and rumblings and rumors of war make me especially nervous knowing that this president of the left's would like nothing more than to get involved in it and call it a jobs program or somesuch rubbish. 'Happy Days Are Here Again' - bah! For the bankers and bomb makers, I wager!
I wouldn't put it past him to break with tradition and seek a third term of office. It would take a Constitutional amendment to prevent it if war came to our shores. What nation could make a decision to change leaders with their sons on foreign battlefields?
If he can't get into a war he'll likely devise some way or another to turn on the money presses again like he did his first few months in office. But this trick wears thin eventually, and can only hasten the day when the devastated dollar is abandoned altogether.
Wow! Sounds a lot like today. I'm so glad I wrote this.
