Think it won't work

Thursday, April 1, 2010

Dear Editor,

With regard to the opinion article, "Think it will work," March 29, 2010, all I can say is "Woe, Woe is me!" Another liberal Democrat has taken up his pen to criticize a local conservative who dared to suggest that the White House has been taken over by Nazis and / or communists. The author then follows with "I feel for someone who has so much hatred in their hearts ... I'll bet she considers herself a real Christian."

No, the inference of the last remark indicates that the writer feels that she is not a real Christian, and therefore we must conclude that he is a real Christian by comparison.

Like all liberal Democrats, the writer is a soft target for the sophistry that comes out of the White House as well as the democratic mantra that they are for the poor and the distribution of wealth and the rich be damned.

How many "sob stories" were paraded before the media by the Democrats to play on the sympathy of the American people to back their Obama Health Plan which makes it legal to kill babies?

It is easy to criticize Rush Limbaugh for using the word "bastards," but a stronger and more apt word would have been "We've got to get those demons."

Good luck to all real Christians of similar ilk and to the Democratic party that is poised to run rough-shod over the middle class with its array of sympathetic taxes that will redistribute wealth and make us all poor, right where the liberals want us to be. Oh, Woe, Woe is me! Entitlements! Entitlements! Will the liberals ever stop making us dependent on government?

J.G. McHale

  • One wonders if Mr.McHale could point to a time when we( whoever this inclusive we is)were not dependent on government.Perhaps the writer might ponder the probabilities of McCook's or even Nebraska's existence without the Homestead act or the government subsidies responsible for the transcontinental railroad.I'm amused that such sorts always seem to have a limit on their vision of who should be less dependent and how much- for instance subsidies to agriculture or the tax breaks businesses routinely receive.

    On the other hand I'm trying to think of anything the conservative impulse is responsible for. That conservative impulse which seems embodied in the aphorisms "if God had intended man to fly He'd have given us wings", and "get a horse".
