Dear Barack:

Monday, May 19, 2008
I'm sitting in my air-conditioned apartment, and I just ate fried chicken for dinner, followed by the small portion of chocolate M&M's I allow myself.

I don't recall having asked the rest of the world for their opinion. Should they care to offer an opinion, I would be quite happy to refer them to the complaints department. In the Christian theological place of eternal punishment. With my firm suggestion that they repair to that location, along with the conveyance upon which they arrived.

Yours sincerely,

Seneca

The amount of crazy talk that geysers out of that guy's mouth is truly amazing.

It is really hard to imagine a message of higher taxes and a lower life style is going to fly over the long haul.

Tough to say. Much of 20th century history involved the effects of intellectuals looking for a secular messiah. Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini, Hitler, Peron, Castro, Mao, Che, Walk to any university - where old ideas go to die - and you'll see some kid in a Che t-shirt. These urges go pretty deep, at least among our intellectual betters.

I keep forgetting. Does fried chicken cause Atlantic hurricanes or is it M & M's?

Well if GWB is unpopular now, imagine the unpopularity of Obama if he succeeds in the short run with his ambitions of trimming our sails. And when people find out the world is in a cooling phase...geez.

Ah, but warming or cooling, we and our spendthrift individualistic ways were the cause. Of course, the sell-by date on that sort of thing comes along pretty quick. The intellectualoids may get us into these messes, but we'll work our way out of it, though at some cost.
