As a Socialist and a Clinton Democrat, I think Obama's just a Liberal Democrat who actually made it upstairs. So few of them have since Nixon.
Somebody somewhere gave me the figure that recessions happen every seven (7) years, and that they always take two or three years to recover from. I think what happened in 2008 was a small-d depression, and nobody wanted to use the D-word out loud for fear of starting a panic, just the way nobody in medicine wants to use the word, Epidemic.
Meanwhile, the Russian Band Pussy Riot has been sentenced to Soviet-style justice by Vladimir Putin for criticising him in a church. Blasphemy is a crime in Russia. France 24 is where I heard of this band's fate first. Then The BBC, then Deutche Welle. Only when the event appeared in American news stations was anyone reluctant to say the name of the band.
