No, I don’t mean that Great Depression. I’m talking about the inevitable moment — maybe next week, maybe next year — when the Kool Aid wears off and the Obamatrons wake up to realize their hero offers nothing even approximating hope or change.The carefully calculated speeches — which have always been filled with empty, hollow phrases — will no longer soothe a battered and desperate populace and the Obamabots will suddenly recognize that the Pope of Hope has never been anything more than a human marketing strategy, a product. This year’s iPhone.

“Yes we can”? Merely the first three words of a longer phrase: “Yes we can continue to work, consume, and obey authority without question.”

A great depression, so to speak, will set in. According to Depression.com, some people say this condition feels “like a black curtain of despair . . . Many people feel like they have no energy and can’t concentrate. Others feel irritable all the time.” Other common symptoms include “empty” feelings and a sense of hopelessness.

Hopelessness: how frighteningly appropriate for the inescapable post-Obama comedown. Change we can bereave in.

Yes, a great and unpreventable depression will set in . . . but, you betcha, the damage is already done.

As for that other Great Depression looming on the horizon, well, here’s my short-term economic recovery plan:

  1. Cut the military budget by 75 percent
  2. Eliminate corporate welfare
  3. Return the corporate tax rate back to where it was in the 1950s

Hey, what can I say? I’m a maverick . . .
