When The Only 'Good Times' Were On TV.

Are we being prepped for a return of the we-must-accept-a-lower-standard-of-living-from-now-on of the 1970's? This article from MiniTrue The New York Times seems to be pointing in that direction.

We do have a weak, lefty ideologue President with a messianic self-image, a spend-it-we'll-print-more fiscal policy, a self-defeating approach to energy policy, and an uber-partisan press - so a 70's deja vu is not unreasonable. But do not despair, dear readers, we will come out of this - once we find this generation's Reagan - and will prosper once again. My greatest fear is disco and the leisure suit make a return in the interim.
