More Lines Of The Day

"I was Born a liberal, I'll be one till the day I die. What else could a reporter be?" – Helen Thomas

"As a libertarian, I'm all over choice. But strangely, today, liberals are mostly about what Americans should not be allowed to choose." – John Stossel 

I received a message this morning from someone who felt it was sad that the ugliness I referred to in another entry had marred such an historic moment. I replied that I didn't see it as so historic – because to me, Obama was just another man. I said that I thought it a tad racist that blacks and even whites were making such a big deal about skin color.

Just now, I came across this comment:

He is indeed the first "African American" President, unlike the millions of other black Americans whose ancestors were here longer than millions of white Americans. By the time that there was a United States of America, most black Americans had never seen Africa and neither had their grandparents. There is no group less eligible to be called hyphenated Americans. Nevertheless, Barack Obama is one of them— symbolically, at least— and race is part of the symbolism of this moment. – Thomas Sowell

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. Helen Thomas is why I don't like journalists and John Stossel proves there are extraordinary people that stand above the crowd.

    That's a fine epithet of her work as a journalist. Good riddance. I heard that quote played back over the Michael Medved show today. Along with it was another question. "You want me to cease thinking and caring?" as an answer to why she was Liberal. The chutzpah. She infers any non-Liberal is unthinking and/or uncaring.
