  1. The video I did after that shutdown has earned more hits and was reposted more widely than almost any video I’ve ever done. I hope it’s okay that I embed it here. Seems appropriate. (Title link is to my website page, listing sources.)

    • I like your choice of music!

      Another one I saw had the video of the barricades being carried away accompanied by “Do You Hear the People Sing” from Les Miserables, which was also very appropriate. 🙂

        Oh, yeah. IIRC, the music was about the last thing added, and really brought the whole collage together.

        Speaking of, this video was briefly flagged because someone said the music was theirs. I had to prove to YouTube that it was public domain U.S. Army Band!

        (This kind of claim must happen frequently – I had another video flagged for music use, when the only music was me playing “Shave and a Haircut – Two Bits” tune.)

      In only 12 short months, the legacy of Obama’s presidency is best captured by the motto of a well-known disaster restoration company: “like it never even happened.” With the exception of a shrinking Obamacare and the CFPB, no significant initiative of the Obama administration remains in place. The near doubling of the federal debt during his eight-year presidency — from $10 trillion to $19 trillion — seems like a very high price to pay for such ephemeral results.
