Wherever Two Or More Democrats Are Gathered Together

Once I was rational.
I believed that, for all her faults, skeletons and pissed-off ex-husbands, America had overcome most of the demons that have plagued the vast majority of nations throughout what we affectionately but laughingly call, history.
I had the love of the idea of America that comes naturally to a child–most of all a child in some godforsaken shithole of a country, praying to God to take her to America.
Then a high school buddy introduced me to the New York Times.
Pretty soon I was sneaking The Nation so that my parents wouldn’t find out.
It was bad for awhile.
Well, I don’t need to tell anyone at this meeting that pretty soon I was justifying all kinds of really evil shit by blaming America for it.
And then the Jews.
That’s when I knew I’d hit bottom.
And so, with experience, strength, hope and fellowship, I have my soul back. My rationality.
And my golf swing is now AWESOME!
(Just kidding on the last part.)
Thank you for letting me share, and now I will turn it over to Ron, who will read Chapter Three from Basic Economics, by Thomas Sowell….
