11. These are outstanding rants, 1SBM!

It's as if the writer has been living in my mind! Only he expresses himself much better. Thanks so much for posting the initial link and, thanks to you, I have bookmarked this blog and have become a Milt Shook fan. I'll be reading it from now on.

From this rant at the same blog: http://pleasecutthecrap.com/while-far-lefties-were-sleeping/

Many of the people who need our help the most Ė you know, the poor people PUBs and pro lefties claim to be advocating for, still donít have access to healthcare, and itís not because we donít have a single-payer system, itís because a number of Republican-led states have refused to provide Medicaid to the poor in their state. Everyone in poverty in every state in the union would have access to free or really cheap healthcare if Republicans were not in charge.

And that is the key. For all of their hemming and hawing and your pretending to care about those who have nothing, they have apparently been sleeping and not noticed that, while they have been dreaming about frog-marching Bush and Cheney to The Hague and parading ďbankstersĒ to prison in orange jumpsuits during their slumber, the poor in this country have been royally screwed by a major political party that is not the Democrats and is most certainly not Hillary Clinton.

Wake up and get a clue, far lefties; Democrats are not the enemy. Not even close. If you really want to make the United States more progressive, start by embracing Democrats and getting rid of the current GOP. Thatís the first step in any such plan.


And this one: http://pleasecutthecrap.com/tilting-at-the-third-way-windmill/

I am an idealist, just like them. The only difference is, I have both feet planted in the real world, where making demands results in absolutely nothing getting done. The real difference between the morons on the far left, with all of their screaming and demands, and me is that I can appreciate the concept of nuance.

Why have these idiots not realized that nothing they demand ever actually gets done? And why would it get done? The key to a democratic system is getting the most people to vote for your side, but who the hell wants to support a group of people who are always screaming at others, for Chrissakes? I mean, when two crazy people are shouting at each other on the sidewalk, are you more likely to cross the street to get away from them or do you listen more closely, to see whoís making the better point? Again, I live in the real world; like most people, I cross the street.


Darn you, 1SBM! I may end up reading EVERY post in this blog!
