Lauds to Bill Byrne of Marietta for his “Free stuff proved irresistible to Obama voters” letter printed Aug. 27. The same to Scott Chadwick, also of Marietta, for his “Assad making fool of Obama” letter of last week.
The “Free stuff” letter probably reminds a slew of us of Mark Antony’s speech to the greedy, illiterate mob who crammed together to hear what he and Brutus had to say about the slaying of Julius Caesar. Brutus, speaking first, informed the mob that Caesar had to bite the dust.
Antony appealed to their emotions, but more importantly, to their greed. His speech set all hell loose in Rome.
Chadwick advanced this idea from a different slant. He pointed out that Obama treats the American public as idiots who cannot, or will not, call him out on his bombastic and meaningless rhetoric. What’s more, the non-presidential president has the destructive liberals of this country following his slop to the trough. Way too many supposed public servants are clearly self-serving opportunists.
Evidence suggests an increasing number of people here are 1. Uninformed, 2. Uncaring, 3. Illegal, 4. Terroristic, 5. Greedy, or 6. a combination of all or part of the above.
Is it imaginable that those people are seriously starting to out-number the rest of us who love America and do our best (including going to vote in an intelligent way) to keep our ship of state seaworthy?
