I noticed something about the majority of people who voted for obama. Many of them expected him to bail them out of their problems and set them up for a life of comfort if not luxury.
This reminded me of a little trip some of us took down to San Antonio, Texas years ago. I had a molecular frequency discriminator which claims to resonate with specific elements which you can locate using electrified dowsing rods. There are 11 provided frequencies which included; iron, silver, gold, platinum, ruby, diamond, lead and a few others I don't recall offhand.
In a discussion with friends I mentioned the machine and we tried to figure out somewhere we could go 'treasure hunting' and see if we could find anything.
One in our group knew an old family in San Antonio who had lived there for many years when it was still Mexican territory. The story went that this family had come from Spain, bought a huge tract of land and raised cattle. They were wealthy and held their wealth as family jewels and coins in a small chest.
I don't recall if it was Indians or Texans in the Spanish-American war that stormed the hacienda. Back then they had slaves and one was sent to bury the chest and return with the location of the hidden chest. The slave did bury it and came back wounded but died before he could say where it was.
This hacienda was built at the curve of a river which was now dried up. Later generations had laid down large stones, the size of an early Volkswagon, to bolster the river bank and minimize erosion.
There were three of us in the front of my truck and two in the back with the rear window open so we could communicate. During the drive we all talked then the three in front got quiet and were listening to two of the guys in the back. Both of them were planning to pay off all their bills and invest the rest of their share so they'd not have to work for the rest of their lives. They were quite serious.
It was very amusing because the trip was more of a lark than a well equipped treasure hunt which NEVER has any guarantee of paying off....and yet...and yet...these guys were thinking all their financial problems would be solved once they got their 1/6 share (family plus the five of us).
This is how I think many obama supporters think. That he would bail them out..the problem is he bailed out the wrong people and ignored all the ones who hoped they'd receive a life on easy street.
Oh, and about the treasure...we did get a triangulation which appeared to be under a big boulder. We didn't have the equipment or resources to move it, but showed the family its location if they wanted to dig it out one day and see if anything was actually there...
So we all drove back home, sunburned and some with calloused and bleeding hands from digging.
Disappointed but definitely reinforcing the cliche, 'Don't count your chickens before the eggs hatch.'
