We’ve been entertained for the last while with the goings on in Wisconsin. The Mobs ransacking the capitol there… the protests… the threats of violence… and worse is the flotsam and jetsam that floats to the top. This time it’s Jesse Jackson and Mike Moore. These people are talking about Democracy… but they are showing us what they are really about. To them, Democracy is a code word for straight up Communism.
Just look at the similarities between the what they are doing in Wisconsin, and what the people were doing at the early stages of the Communist Revolution is Russia.
At best, Democracy is the Rule of the Mob. The Majority running roughshod over the Minority. In this case, it’s the Minority threatening and intimidating the Majority Leadership. It’s ugly and it’s wrong, and it’s not the American Way… because America is not a Democracy. We need to stop teaching that to School Kids. Public Education has programed kids to think we are what we are not. We are a Constitutional Republic. There is a huge difference… and that difference is what’s clashing in Wisconsin.
It is with both a great deal of amusement and with some disappointment that I read the news about the games Senate Democrats in the great state of Wisconsin are playing.
Before you can take your ball and run home with it… it needs to be your ball, Senators. You people have sworn oaths of office, and I know that means so very little to Democrats, but you still took the oath. The topic of controversy is spending, and here you are running off into another state, which is costing the Wisconsin Taxpayer even more money for your silliness and you are holding up the functions of the Wisconsin State Government.
This is not what you were voted for. You folks are behaving foolishly. Yet at the same time, not unexpectedly. The Democrat Party has been reprehensible for some time and your behavior as a national party has only been getting worse. You people are disgusting. Either get back to work, or quit and let those willing to do the job step up.
This is about the day I almost died… and the day that I too became a Packers fan.
It was a cold December day many years ago. I was in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I was in a family restaurant that was within a stone’s throw of that famous stadium.
The joint was filled with a hungry and talkative lunch crowd. The place was loud with conversations, tinkling of silverware against the flatware, and waitresses buzzing around the tables busy as bees.
The guy across the table said, “So, who’s your favorite football team?”
I remember I had just picked up a french fry and before I popped it into my mouth, I said “The Niners.”
The whole place got absolutely silent. I heard the dropping of a fork on a plate and in the distance a dog barked. Angrily.
You see, that’s Green Bay. By and large, that’s Wisconsin. They love the Packers. No other team has a Home Town like the Packers. No one.
I got two chews on that fry before I quickly said “After the Packers of course.”
Large bearded men sat back down and the waitresses started waiting again. Conversations picked back up and the angel of death turned and walked away from me.
I learned an important lesson then. If you don’t like the Packers – just STFU. I spent a lot of time in Wisconsin, Especially around Appleton, Osh Kosh, and a Rhinelander. But I will always remember that day in Green Bay. I learned to love the Packers too.
