I was very amused at Mr Warner's calling me a "reactionary"
when he points to his Democrats who are his 30% conservative
heroes. Including the likes of Henry "Scoop" Jackson,
Harry Truman, Herman Talmadge, etc. Those people lived and governed
fifty or more years ago and he calls me a reactionary!! Why
did he leave out George Washington and Julius Caesar?
Today's Democrat leader like Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean are
much closer in political philosophy to Che Guevera and Nikita
Kruschev than they are to Harry Truman. Today's Democrat party
has been hijacked by left-wing kooks who hope to gain power by
seducing those who want big government backed by high taxes
to support them on the backs of most workers who pay their own
way. Democrat voters are heavily welfare mothers, recent poor
immigrants who want free health care, the downtrodden, unwashed
and uneducated. The exception to this is government workers
including teachers and professors like Mr. Warner, off today
celebrating Columbus Day while the rest of us work for a living.
Civil Service workers generally retire with healthy pensions
and generous health benefits at age 55 while the rest of us have
to wait until age 67. Is this fair? It does explain their allegiance
to "Tax 'em high Democrats" though, doesn't it? Professors
get something called tenure after working for a few years after
which they have a job for life no mater how goofy, lazy or senile
they become. The party of low taxes, the GOP does not sanction
this kind of thing, Democrats do and so Mr. Warner becomes
an apologist for the Democrats, voting his pocketbook, protecting
the party that pays his way.
I was at the gym early this morning. A bunch of us were talking
about Columbus Day, kidding about how Mr Columbus was partying
at home today to celebrate his birthday as he is too old to go
to his favorite pizza parlor. The young clerk at the desk who
checks IDs and membership cards heard us talking and remarked
excitedly, "Oh my God. Columbus is still alive?!"
I don't know what school this kid attends or what his major is
but this I know for a fact. He is destined to become a Democrat
when he grows up --- for sure!
