When I awoke today and saw the headline on the Huffington Post: "WE'VE MOVED ON," and read the piece in the Business Section of the NY Times proclaiming that the "Age of Reagan" was over, I heaved a 30-year sigh of relief. Now, it finally really was "Morning in America," three decades after Ronald Reagan hypnotized so many by declaring it so way back in the dark ages.
From the Times article:
"The bill that President Obama signed on Tuesday is the federal government’s biggest attack on economic inequality since inequality began rising more than three decades ago. Since 1980, median real household income has risen less than 15 percent. For most of the last three decades, tax rates for the wealthy have been falling, while their income has been rising rapidly. Real incomes at the 99.99th percentile have jumped more than 300 percent since 1980.
"Mr. Obama understood that the Reagan administration had gone too far, and he promised that if elected, he would try to put the country on a new trajectory. 'The project of the next president,' Mr. Obama said in an interview during the campaign, 'is figuring out how you create bottom-up economic growth, as opposed to the trickle-down economic growth.”
Peter Loffredo says: "WHEW!!!"
Now, don't get me wrong. I know that we create our own reality - completely - individually and en masse, consciously and not. So, it's not like this just happened, anymore than Reagan just happened.
My positive feelings about the destiny of humanity over the last thirty years, even in the midst of overt insanity, has mainly come from the many people I've seen and known who are working and have been working to elevate their consciousnesses. The election of Barack Obama and the exposure and demise of the "Frontal Lobers," otherwise known as the Republican Party, along with their teabagging supporters of Flat-Earth ideology, came about because people had evolved.
I felt it in 2008, and I feel it even more now.
Which brings me to... "The Wave."
