Beginning to clear out the augean stables of various note pads strewn throughout various pockets, desks, tables including dining room, shelves, and other points of interest:
* Old friend Bob K., Democrat leaning Socialist if not there already, quotes Scripture to his purpose of selling the then in ramming process now accompli Obama-scare, a.k.a.
(not kidding), while dwelling also on plight of poor. To him I say, as to old friend Joan, who buttonholed me on OP Avenue some months back and recommended my reading the Bible, your unimpeachable motivation should not be confused with strategy.
You assume Obama-scare is good for poor people, even as public school and other public budgets are slashed because of a dearth of public money. Tax more, you say, but there’s an end to that somewhere, as businesses cut back under tax burdens and the nation heads for big fiscal trouble.
Bob, Joan, all you good Christian and other kind-hearted people, consider what you want done to the common weal. Your commendable impulses are getting us all in big trouble, especially the poorest among us, as I told you, Bob, in our recent email exchange. I won’t say “repent” — I’m not one to offer or demand that alternative — but I do say rethink your position.
* More later from the stables . . . .
