She must be the dumbvest woman that ever lived.
Demand that all members of the politburo, elected and appointed, be shackled under the same system they impose on the rest of the nation.
That will keep them “honest” or at least miserable.
Yes, I do think it normal for a teenager to have a socialist viewpoint. Churchill’s quote comes to mind. Teenagers have a naive view of the world. Save the whales. Save the cute furry animals. Why can’t we help all the poor people? Love and peace for everyone! Teens want to rebel but have no idea how to make the world work. Most conservatives (at least most of the prominent ones I’ve seen online) started out fairly liberal in their youth. But then they, ... grew up. They matured and realized they don’t have all the answers nor even know the questions. They learned to take responsibility for their own lives and others’ lives.
Leftists never learned those lessons. They have been coddled and allow to slide through life without putting the hard work to achieve real goals that matter. This is why a lot of Hollyweird actors are leftist: they made millions on the looks, or play acting, or playing as themselves. This is why Obama and his administration are leftist: they slide by on skin color or gender or ethnicity or lying. They never had to face consequences of bad decisions or prove competency.
In 2010, she had her first opponent.
Karen Harrington got 25k votes to her 40k. Not a bad start for purple gerry-mandered Broward county.
I plan on volunteering in Karen’s office before the next election.
That's a damning indictment of the way "we" raise teenagers, IMO. Seems to me a teenager is more than smart enough to realize that robbing Peter to pay Paul to do nothing is a bad idea ... the Churchill quote has always seemed bizarre to me. I and my high-school friends were always at odds with our leftist history and "social studies" teachers.
Well, you *are* raising teenagers to be responsible adults. Most people do, but we have a large slice of the population who are not. Think of the Paris Hiltons who never learned responsibility until a judge finally threw her jail (after the 24th offense). Or the actor Will Smith who gets paid $20M per movie for basically being himself. $20M for just being there.
It seems to me the stories of conservatives are similar. Many were naive when young and then they matured.
Change “Jones” to “Bush” and this is precisely what we have today. Romney may have his faults, but he is gracious and does not engage in erecting strawmen and hobgoblins.
