Ronald Reagan said that we can disagree without being disagreeable. Unfortunately, many who disagree with me are both downright unreasonable and extremely disagreeable. Just because I don’t agree with them I am now, according to those with the political power of the press, un-American, unpatriotic, a member of the mob, Astroturf, a hooligan and a political terrorist.
I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you are not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.
I said that well, didn’t I? Ok, gang. Before I’m accused of plagiarism let me admit that even though I feel that way those are not my words.I should have quotation marks around them and given credit to Hillary Clinton. Those were her words when the shoe was on the other foot.
Because words can be thrown back at you, one has to be very careful of what he says. One also has to be very cautious about what he may he wish for. He just may get that wish. For two years I wished Hillary would not get the nomination. I said it here many times. I am now standing with my hand over my heart, with a thousand regrets%u2026.I am a man who got his wish and I am so sorry. When you compare her to who we have in the White House now, Hillary looks better and better and I do know that I am not the only patriotic American that feels that way. My liberal friends are busy removing their Obama bumper stickers. National politics will be very interesting in two years.
A couple of columns ago I told you that less than 20% of the cars bought inthe Cash For Clunkers program were General Motors cars. More than 60% were Japanese. Now we have learned that General Motors intends to increase the numbers of autos to be built and will do so by adding shifts of workers to various GM plants. Production shifts will be added and thus far 1350 employees will be put back to work at the plants in Lordstown, Ohio and Ontario Canada. 450 workers will be hired for two of its plants in Mexico. Those numbers will be increased as needed.CANADA??? MEXICO??? It’s bad enough that 60% of the bottom line profits are going to Tokyo. Now, a Washington, DC program funded by American tax dollars is hiring Mexicans and Canadians to work in their home countries. These guys in the nation’s capitol are crazy.
I am StanGershbein@Bellsouth.net reminding you to please mail your letters with commemorative postage stamps. They cost the same and you just might be helping a nine year old philatelist in another town.
