    Republicans are the party of the rich, right? It's a label that has stuck for decades, and you're hearing it again as Democrats complain about GOP opposition to raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment benefits. But in Congress, the wealthiest among us are more likely to be represented by a Democrat than a Republican. Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states like New York and California.

    If you brought back either of the Roosevelts—Teddy or Franklin—from the grave, the most astonishing thing they would find is that the “malefactors of great wealth” have become the benefactors of today’s liberalism, and Democrats have become the party of the rich. In the economic crisis of the 1930s, the rich hated FDR. Most of today’s rich love Barack Obama—so much so that Washington D.C. area airports ran out of space to handle all of the private jets flying in the well-heeled for both of his inaugurals. Forget the “limousine liberals” of the 1960s and 1970s, sending their own kids...

    On April 6, 2008, Barack Obama visited the San Francisco region, zipping from event to event all day long, from one end of the Bay Area to the other. What? you might ask. How did I miss that? If only I had known, I would have gone to see him. Well, there's a reason you didn't know about it. Obama didn't want you to know about it. Because the events he was attending weren't for people like you. They were for people with lots and lots of money, who use that money to gain access and influence with politicians --...

    ZombieTime marches into the Tomb of the Rich Written by Melanie Morgan    Tuesday, 08 April 2008 One of my heroes (unknown to me and I don't even have an e-mail address) took his/her camera into my adopted hometown of San Francisco to shoot the appearance of Barry Hussein Obama yesterday for a mega-rich billionaire fund-raiser. (Barry is for the little people, of course, and his wife Michelle wants to make sure no one makes TOO much money, because we need helpers in society--excluding the millionaire Obamas, of course.)  I get a huge kick out of this because I brought...

    Sen. Evan Bayh, weighing a run for president in 2008, challenged the Democratic Party to establish an agenda aimed at middle-class voters, a critical constituency that he said the party has let slip away. "We may consider ourselves the party of the middle class, but too many middle-class Americans no longer consider us their party," the Indiana Democrat said Monday. "They have left the Democratic Party in droves - costing us the last two presidential elections and the last six congressional elections. If we don't learn some lessons, we'll lose in 2006 and 2008 as well, and we must not...

    The County Press (Second Thoughts) ^ | 8-6-03 | William w. Lawrence
    Editorial Second Thoughts By: William W. Lawrence 08/05/2003 There is an important undertaking going on in Marple and Newtown Townships. The Marine Corps League, American Legion and VFW have joined the Marple Parks Department and USPS for a flag depository project which brings five mailboxes to the Marple and Newtown communities. The boxes sport handsome stars and stripes and the veterans' organization logos. They are marked "Flags Only" to discourage other items such as eyeglasses from being dropped in these special receptacles. I would like to see this enterprise take wings and spread through the rest of Delaware County. Old...
