AFTER-WORD – Monday, November 8, 2004
On Tuesday night my son and his friend were walking toward the polling place at New Brighton on Staten Island when two young men in hiphop gear wearing do-rags on their heads approached them. “Yo, vote for Bush,” they said in unison.Kewl. HT to a MAKPA visitor who asked to be called "Pietro."
My son thought they were kidding, but as they passed by, one of the youth said in a defiant tone, “We got to finish the job. Make sure we win the war.”
That evening, my son ran into three other minority-group youths voicing similar sentiments. The liberal elite of New York might find that attitude difficult to understand, because it is completely and totally disconnected from the “heart and soul” of America.
"I look with increasing horror, along with growing numbers of other Americans, at the great and bitter division that's taking place in our politics and the cynicism that is the result of power for power's sake," he told about 400 listeners at a state museum in the capital, Trenton.He promoted his alleged homosexual lover, who denies it, to critical and well-payed State position, dragged the State government through the mud, and resigned because he feared he would be sued.
He gives homosexuals a bad name, in that no one group is comprised of corrupt married men who break their vows with the hetereosexual wives and the people they were elected to govern. His sexuality is coincidental to his lack of morality.
(A friend tells me that this idea is outmoded, and I am gently reminded that President Reagan is dead.)
Keep them in your prayers.
