Mr. Boehner, Mr. Ryan, Mr. Kantor: Which one of these Presidents qualifies as a "Big Spender"?
? ? ? ?
As would-be president Mitt Romney tells it: “I will lead us out of this debt and spending inferno.” Almost everyone believes that Obama has presided over a massive increase in federal spending, an “inferno” of spending that threatens our jobs, our businesses and our children’s future. Even Democrats seem to think it’s true.
Remember, this piece came from the online Market Watch feature of the Wall Street Journal, a publication not noted for its liberal propensities.
How to spot members of the “Legion of the Gullible.” There are many in your community. If they meet two or more of these criteria, they may belong to the “Legion.” More than two, they are likely to be charter members, and probably beyond redemption, no longer being able to distinguish truth from untruth.
Some of the "Legion of the Gullible." (Their faces are grim because they are "settling" for Mitt Romney as their nominee. They would have preferred Bachmann, Santorum or Ron Paul. They may vote Republican this year but for all of the wrong reasons.)
Caused by Email
The de-personalization of communications caused by Email and other electronic media is something that should be of concern to all of us. People sometimes will say something in an Email which they might find it difficult to say in face-to-face contact or even over the telephone. I once worked for a firm in pre-Email days which laid off employees by sending them a impersonal Western Union telegram, avoiding an uncomfortable confrontation in the boss’s office. I suspect that today, they might be sending the “pink slip” by Email.
