1. It's good to hear this voice from the past.

But sad to hear that things haven't changed. Except that our population has grown (probably almost doubled since then), and everything's the same way again it was in the 1930s...some 80 yrs ago.

2. Will Rogers was a better economist than most of the professional economists

we see today on the TeeVee. He got the number one most fundamental thing right--jobs matter more than all those other technical problems combined. If you've got millions out of work, willing and able to work, but unable to find jobs, that's more important than any "fiscal cliff."

Once again we find ourselves in the richest nation on Earth, with more corn, more wheat, more gold, more everything, yet with millions struggling to afford food.

3. Notice the lack of glib, polished, insider speak

MSM isn't in the business of expressing the truth, Will wouldn't even of had a shot today.

6. Longer version

"... I'm here this evening appearing on the bill with Mr Hoover ... I expect you won't hear any more of Amos and Andy ... It'll be Hoover and Rogers from now on ..."
