The Madness

I am so very encouraged by our young people and so very discouraged by our older people. The Conservatives and the Republicans are in a full-court press right now using every tactic they can find to disrupt and protest each time a Democrat appears in public.

I fully support any and all protests but they should have some nexus to an issue. What is going on right now is all over the place. They are protesting for the sake of getting the attention of the media.

Colorado Governor Bill Ritter was shouted down at the Club 20 meeting in Grand Junction yesterday. Protesters in Las Vegas were screaming at the top of their lungs at meetings in Las Vegas about any and everything that came to their collective minds.

One commentator said that the protesters were wearing the same T Shirt that Timothy McVeigh wore to explain his killing of 160 or so people in Oklahoma City over gun laws.

These people are so very angry over the fact that we have a black, Democrat president. They act like they would do anything or everything to see he and his programs defeated.

I am reminded of the quote by Burke, "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men (and women) do nothing." It is time for those who disagree to do something. It is up to you and I to do something now.
