I'm a Fighting Liberal

Friday, 11:24 am

Without liberals, there would be no modern America, just a Nazi satelite state. Liberals weak on defense? Liberals created America’s defense. The conservatives only need vets at election time. It is time to stop looking for an accomodation with the right. They want none for us. They want to win, at any price. So, you have a choice: be a fighting liberal or sit quietly. I know what I am, what are you? I’m a fighting liberal This was written in ‘03 and is even truer today.  Thanks to Linkmeister for pointing me in the direction. 

I posted this on my facebook page and to date there have been 26 comments.  A record for me!!  Most from like minded friends, a couple from a holy roller that is allowed to post ONLY because he provides all of us with a great deal of amusement and keeps us busy thinking of new ways to make him froth at the mouth.  He is totally rabid......after all, he is convinced the word of authority and the only one, except God, of course, in this world is Rush--you know, he of the smelly cigar who must be making his way to Costa Rica for his healthcare as I write.  After all that IS what he said, isn’t it?  Anyway, if you have the time read this article, I hope it reaches out and grabs you the same way it did me.

PS--this is the 4th time I have tried to post this. Maybe it is time I read Kate’s directions instead of trying to wing it on my own.  cool smirk

The late, deeply-lamented Steve Gilliard was a brilliant and forceful thinker.  And, as he said, a fighting liberal.

He had another favorite catch-phrase as well.  As we near Opening Day, and as a life-long Phillies Phan, I remind everyone that I completely agree with Steve’s other mantra—FTFY.

(words 1 and 3 are the same, and word 4 is “Yankees")
