"Ride the Storm and Direct the Whirlwind!"

Don't you just love it when they pull those old "Founding Fathers" out to make a point? No. Me neither. But still there is wisdom in some of those old corpses: Franklin, Jefferson, Washington, etc.

And then of course there's that very dead, but very hot, of the moment, Broadway-smash, hip-hop Superstar Alexander Hamilton. And what does old, decrepit, big-time dead Hamilton have to say to us this morning? This seems so spot-on it's a bit eerie.

Love the language, those old-timers all seemed so much more literate: "flattering prejudices," "shelter in the arms of monarchy for repose and security."

Some of this almost seems like PROPHECY

 Alexander Hamilton - 1792
