How many of you folks remember this song?
You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
Goto http://www.rienzihills.com/SING/accentuate.htm, read the words, listen to the music, and think about where you were in 1944.
I was just 14 years old but I remember that period and the song like it was yesterday. Folks were going through and had been through some very tough times. We had survived the great depression and were fighting hard to survive the great war.
Nobody had anything, but we sure as hell were not about to give up the little that we had. Times were tough and we were fighting hard. We, the United States of America, needed that song and as I recall everybody was singing it.
I strongly suggest that we adopt this song as our “theme song” as we start the 2005 phase of our fight to regain what military retirees were promised, and earned. Let's accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, and don't mess with the other guy in-between.
