“It’s a Wonderful Life” is one of those films which I watch every year.  Every. Single. Year.  It’s been that way for the better part of a decade, and the movie never seems to get old, it never seems to grow stale.

This year though, I saw something new in it, an added resonance.  No, not the bit above about us all being George Bailey (or at least wanting to be George Bailey), but what exactly that means today and how exactly that works.  Our wanting to be George Bailey can be used against us and what we have to remember is that George Bailey fought and struggled and never took anything from anyone else.

Confused?  Just listen.
