Because There's Still Hope....

I love Merle Haggard songs, and have previously put up the Seashores of Old Mexico. This one occurred to me today though. When you contemplate how deep the real recession still is for workers and the middle classes on both sides of the Atlantic--who have suffered the worst decline in purchasing power and wages since the Great Depression--it might be easy to just give in.

Equally, rising oil and food prices, the flood of QE into paper derivative markets, and the takeover of the western Treasuries by the banks and corporate world, disguised as a sovereign debt crisis, might make one despair. There are wars and plagues all over the place and the sky is dark with Damoclean swords.

But then again, all one needs in moments like that is a bike ride and a spot of Merle, and all is resolved. Things will get worse before they get better, but there is no need to wallow in despair; you and me, reader, will ride between the blades and raindrops. Good luck!
