As president-elect Obama takes leadership of a broken nation. He is the Man and we are the Wire.

That future belongs to our kids more than us, so let’s think forwardly and act presently.

Witness the fruits of deregulation. Are we practicing selective socialism for the few? Keeping the wealth in a limited group? Something is amiss here. Some accountability would be good.
