Agreeing with Rush

A recent post of mine over on the Blog at Mises.org:

Agreeing with Rush

Jim Fedako

Yes, it's true. I agree with Rush Limbaugh: I do not want Obama to succeed.

According to Newt Gingrich, that makes me irrational. So be it. While I'm admitting my irrationality, I must also state that I do not want my governor, county commissioners, or township trustees to succeed either. Nor, for that matter, my local scenic river advisory council.

Note: When Gingrich states, "You're irrational if you don't want the president to succeed. Because if he doesn't succeed the country doesn't succeed," he's conflating country with its occupying force.

Oh, the things I don't want to succeed. Because practically nothing is as it appears on the surface. Last evening my doorbell rang and when I answered the door, there stood a young man, soliciting money. He was collecting for SAVE THE CHILDREN. Short story: He has a college degree but can't get a job so he is working for minimum wage (unless he meets his quota) and begging for money door-to-door. He told me he voted for AKA Obama. He gave me his sob story about SAVE THE CHILDREN and I gave him my regrets. I told him it was a shame he can't find work but the chickens have come home to roost. Then I went to my computer to research SAVE THE CHILDREN. And boy was I glad he did not get any of my money. I suggest others do the same. STC is associated with some of the worst of the worst.
