Northern Liberals Drag This Country Down

Don't get me wrong. I live in the north, and I love the north. I spend my Saturday afternoons watching PBS; I enjoy true quality organic and fusion cuisine; I eat my tofu and aoili; and the people are very sophisticated. I simply disagree with them about politics. The political beliefs of liberal northerners drag this country down.

It has always been this way since World War I. Most liberals refused to take the Communist threat seriously. They derided anti-Communists as paranoids while the Ukranian famine was in full swing. And they refused to support Reagan when it came time to defeat the Soviets once and for all.

We all know what happened. The Soviet Union could not match us militarily and crumbled. Modern liberalism was founded on the defense of centralized government and "progressive" socialist programs. After decades of playing up the success of communist economics and centralized control, it fell apart in front of our eyes.

The liberals are still wrong. If it wasn't for them, William Jefferson Clinton would have had no chance of getting elected. He could rely on the liberals to vote for him in a block, and so can Kerry.

Then there is the war on terror which has been one difficult fight after another. Let's make this clear. Internationally, intelligence agencies agreed: Saddam was working towards WMD and was a threat to international security. The UN sanctions were failing and would have been stopped. Fighting a war of liberation is not a crime.

It is evident that we have a hippie traitor as a presidential candidate. Unfortunately, northnern liberals by and large support him even though his policies such as indecision on Iraq put our country at risk. Their blind disloyalty to America brings this country down.

About the dude Mark Gelbart: He's written a novel entitled Talk Radio. It has very little to do with reality, but it appeals to hate-filled liberals who want to believe the worst about right-wing alternative media.

The eleven states of the CSA should have closed their borders long ago to the contamination of Yankees moving south. They have brought nothing but their d*mn liberal ideas and their grossly incorrect superiority complex. They should be shunned for the carpetbaggers they have always been, exploiting the South and Southerners while looking down their noses. We are sick of it.

Long ago, during the summer between my Freshman and Sophomore years in college, I worked part-time pumping gas at a small Exxon station in the Shenandoah Valley.

We put up with a lott of crap from Yankees 'come down to gloat' at the battlefields.

One day, after listening patiently to about 5 minutes of diatribe (things were slow) from the driver of a car with New Jersey plates, I asked the fellow if he would like any gas?

When he replied, "Fill 'er up!", I said "No. You can go 30 miles the way you are headed, or back twenty, they have gas there. I'm not selling you a damned drop!"

I then informed him that if he didn't move his piece of junk and stop blocking my pumps I'd call the County Sherrif and have him arrested for trespassing.

It felt good to send one smarta$$ off with his tail between his legs.

I thought my boss might be mad at me but he got a real kick out of it when I told him.

The most openly racist white people I have ever met live in and around New York City and Boston. Of course, this doesn't stop certain members of my family from talking about those "backward rednecks" down South even though they go out of their way to send their kids to all white schools and would call the cops if they saw a black man walking in their neighbohood. GGRRRRRR!!!

Sweet Home Alabama

Written by Ed King - Ronnie Van Zant - Gary Rossington


Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think its a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home Alabama
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the governor's true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Yea, yea Montgomery's got the answer

Thanks, I almost got arrested in Huntsville last winter. I did a perfectly customary Massachusetts style rolling stop at the airport, got jumped all over by a pair of Huntsville constabulary, apologized profusely, the more I tried to agree with them, the madder they got. I gotta remember were I am. The barbecue (and schnitzel - this was Huntsville) was outstanding and 'cept for that one misunderstanding with the local smokies the people were definitely hospitable.

Well, Southerners do generally make really bad presidents. Dubya may be the first one since Andrew Jackson that doesn't fall into the complete disaster category. (Bush I really is a Yankee)

Conservatism isn't just relegate to white people in the South.


Though that seems to be what you are getting at. What you are really attempting to say is that Conservatism is what is dragging this country down.

Quick Question: except for the notable exception of John F. Kennedy, where did the last few Democratic Presidents come from?

Answer:

LBJ: Texas
Clinton: Arkansas
Carter: Georgia

At least we conservatives here don't couch our words in race-baiting language like you do. We simply say the upper-northeastern blue-blood elitist liberalism is bad for the country.

We don't go on to point out that most upper-north east liberal blue blood happen to be white.

"Crank theory on tax cuts

Tools


Subscribe to this paper
Larger / Smaller Text


Monday, June 23, 2003



Dear Editor:
I live in Augusta, Ga., and the Augusta Chronicle recently ran one of your editorials entitled "Tax Cuts Warranted." In your editorial, you claimed that under Reagan, tax cuts boosted tax revenues. This is completely false. Here are the statistics from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget's annual historical tables (1987):

Year Tax Collections in Constant (adjusted for inflation) 1987 dollars

1981 $766.6 billion

1982 $738.2 billion Reagan's tax cuts go in effect here.

1983 $684.3 billion Revenue from corporate income tax fell so drastically that Reagan agreed to a corporate

tax hike here. Remember his "revenue enhancement" as a euphemism for a tax increase?

1984 $730.4 billion

1985 $776.1 billion

It took five years for the tax collections to equal what they were before Reagan cut taxes, and this is when the tax revenue base is naturally increasing with the increase in the GDP which occurs every year, unless there is a recession. Economists are in near unanimous agreement that supply-side theory has been proven false. In fact, there is not a single supply-side wing in any college economics department in the United States.

It's a crank theory, popular with politicians who think they can promise us the moon and the stars.

Mark Gelbart"

Mr. Gelbart:

I see you only posted the years 1981 - 1985.

Gee, I'm just curious. Since you bothered to look this up, I'm wondering......what was the Collected Tax Reveune like for the LAST 3 YEARS Reagan was in office? You know, like Reagan was President from 1980 to 1988?

Where are the figures for 1986, 1987 and 1988?

Perhaps you'd like to post it?

Or should I?
