  1. OK - we're at 36 and counting - hmmmm - that works out to be 10+ companies per year of the obama regime. Perhaps the date of the failures would be illuminating. And all within a very narrow type of company; maybe the SEC or some such should be investigating the cause of the failures.......

  3. That was my Navy recruit company's theme song, also. I'm betting that everyone that was in boot camp in the 1980 time period has fond memories of it. I was in Orlando, now sadly closed. Where were you, Kurt?
