Well, I’m kind of upset tonight because I’ve encountered some people with an attitude that is inexplicable to me. Privately I call them Tories because the exhibit all of the classical features of Toryism.
Perpetually gloomy about the prospect of liberty they sulk inflicting their pessimism on morale. They derive bitter satisfaction from their self-fulfilling prophecies of doom. Openly aristocratic and monarchist they are content that their new insect overlords beat them and cheat them, panting for scraps like a common cur except a dog has too noble a soul to accept such offal.
But the worst offenders are those who think like this but still expect our votes, money, and effort as if they had some God anointed right to join the gated Village and get away from the foul smelling rabble.
What country are you from?
You have no right to my labor, property, or allegiance. You are not the boss of me. I am in fact YOUR boss, I gave you that job and I sign your damn check and I expect respect from my employees otherwise I fire their sorry ass and hire somebody else.
I can’t understand how the admission of several Congress people that their vote on the August FISA was influenced by fear for their personal safety because of White House lies about a potential attack on the Capital is anything but craven cowardice. It is exactly the same thing as desertion in the face of the enemy. Brave men have died for our freedom. Do you have some special lucky charm that makes your miserable existence worth more than any of the 3892 that died for a lie in Iraq? Would you sell your child for $10 million?
That’s the going rate you know. I know what you are- now we’re just negotiating about the price. Unless you just give it away.
Oh wait, that’s what you do.
You should be afraid of me because I know what you are…
