SHE should be the “Straight Talk Express” – this 80 year old grandma cuts right to the heart of our political atmosphere now and makes no apologies for it. Man, to be like that now! (sigh)
Here’s a snippet of her latest post.
Now letâ€™s talk about taxes. John McCain is working overtime to scare the hell out of all the Joe the Fill-in-the-Blankâ€™s out there. Heâ€™s trying to fool them into thinking that they actually make enough money to be worried. That is the biggest joke the Republican party has managed to play on the good people of America. Most of us donâ€™t even make enough money in a life-time to afford the membership into that club. The idea of a progressive tax where the wealthy pay more in taxes than the poor is nothing new. Not even close. In fact 81% of economist agree with the conceptâ€¦ and here is a real eye opener – until he crapped his pants about losing this election John McCain supported the concept as well. Trust me, that dog donâ€™t hunt, he will say anything to win at this point. De-regulation of banks? He was for it, but now is against it. He was for privatization of social security and now he is against it. He was for the estate tax and now he is against it. He used to have a spine and now he doesnâ€™t. You know, at his age, he should know thereâ€™s medication for such personality swings.
If you are undecided – and I am at a complete loss for how you could be – please consider the following:
Which party has been screaming terrorist, socialist, Marxist, murder him and kill himâ€¦ and which party has been talking about hope and unity.
Which party has been throwing everything but the kitchen sink at you everyday for the past two weeks hoping to scare you into thinking that there is an Un-American part of the countryâ€¦ and which party has been sayng that there is no red America and no blue America but only the United States of America.
Which party thinks war is the answer to everythingâ€¦ and which party has suggested that maybe we need to sit down and talk this out to see if peace is possible.
Which Presidential candidate just gave a speech accusing Barack Obama of delaying the World Series game. I mean of all things. In fact, that is a lie. But my god, that is the McCain talking point for the day? Thatâ€™s a small thing I know, but when Harold hears something on TV about sports, thatâ€™s a big thing in our house. So he checked. It was a lie. But McCain is counting on you to not check to see if he was telling the truth. He is counting on Americans to be fat and lazy. And as silly and ridiculous as that little lie isâ€¦ what more do you need? He will lie to you to get your vote.
So tell me again why you are undecided?
Oh yes I forgot. The terrorists are going to get us.
Folks, Iâ€™m tired of living in fear. Life is too short. How about we try hope and optimism again and see how that works. It created the greatest nation in history and the world is better for it.
See? She’s awesome!
