The American Condition Politically, Culturally, Economically
ROSEN AND "NON WORKING MOTHERS -- A BIT ON MAHER ALSO
Hilary Rosen, Obama's frequent visitor to OUR White House, is archtypical of the type of person that has highjacked the once honorable and proud Democratic Party, that of most of my forebearers. If you haven't heard Rosen's gutter comment about Mrs. Romney never having worked, you should seek it out and listen, not only to the comment but to her later defense of the indefensible. She is in the same league as Bill Maher and other radical Progressives.
I was raised by one of these mothers who "never worked" a la Rosen. Her priorities were taking care of my sister and me and our father while making a home for all of us. NOT easy. Her dedication to family and her faith defined her...a wonderful person.
Once while I sat with Mom in her waning days (her winter season of life), Maher asserted on CNN that any person of faith was stupid. Later he said "anyone that believes the Jesus story is and Idiot." My mother was astounded. She was also deeply hurt. I hope to be able to confront the sorry piece of humanity before my checkout date. Would Maher apologize? Hell NO. He is always "right." He's also typical of the radicals who have taken over the Democratic Party. Also, he is a supporter of Obama and has publicly given $1 million to Obama's reelection.
Mrs. Romney should not expend one breath of air defending herself. Push it back into the disrespectful mouth and mind of Ms. Rosen. If you've already guessed it, yes, I'm very angry at those who highjacked the Democratic Party of my great and honorable forebearers.
"Trying to persuade a prejudiced mind is as Sisyphean as trying to open a closed mind is Quixotic." Mann, May 2012 In
a blog post herein below on May 1, 2013, I outlined what we who
manage people and enterprises know as absolutes about performances of
people who are put into management and supervisory positions for
which they haven't requisite qualifications. For those who have
progressed through several jobs to their level of incompetence, this
is known as the Peter Principle as defined by Laurence J. Peter. In
all likelihood, all who have managed people for any length of time
have seen this principle played out. While Peter's observation
applies to progression through multiple job levels, if a person is
put into any job for which he is unqualified, the concept is also
valid. Elective political positions is where I see this most often
played out. The
election of Barack Obama as President of the United States is the
most significant example of this in my lifetime. I w…
I apologize for the structure of the post below, with no segmentation, but the system refuses to do it my way. To my post yesterday re AMR's chapter 11 filing relating my experiences over many years flying with AA, an AA pilot wrote a thoughtful comment that caused me to think a bit more about the precursors to conditions of their bankruptcy. Frankly, I have what is perhaps too much experience with trade unions and their excesses, but know less about others such as the airlines. After learning more about the negotiations of AA with their unions, I now think it's justifiable to post the comments below. I've seen too many industries destroyed by union excesses coupled with management incompetence in caving to excess demands. Start with coal (dead for many years), steel, textiles, shoes, electronics manufacturing, and more. The Detroit 3 (once the big 3) deserves special mention. As their costs rose to $72/hour (fully loaded) and costs in the southern industry …
