Congressional Democrats (mostly white, of course) are ganging up on Congressman Rangel of Harlem who is black. He is also old, in his 80s.The congressman appears to have committed some minor improprieties involving condos and tax exemptions, and such. The Democratic leadership wants to take him down after 40 years of service. It’s unfair. I kind of like Rangel. He is a thieving politician of the old school: $20,000, here, $40.000 there. Moderate graft, all in all. He never offended good taste and decorum. He never thought of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs.He is also a decorated war hero. This counts for something.
The Democrats are throwing him under the bus because they are in a panic. They need to show they are serious. Rangel is dispensable, His is a safe seat. Harlem will not elect a Republican. Period.
Getting rid of Rangel will save us, tax-payers $100,000, maybe $200,000, over the next four or five years and make us forget the Obama billions of debts. They are going crazy!
African-American congresswoman Maxine Waters is climbing on the death wagon too, also for financial improprieties. In her case, I don’t mind. She is an extremist leftist and a real snake personally.
Does anyone remember how the Communist unelected leaders of the world first “socialist state,” the Soviet Union, soon found themselves saddled with luxurious “dachas” that beat Camp David hands-down?
In Ms Water’s case, I would be glad to whip to a trot the horse that tows the death wagon.
In the meantime, Senator Kerry, the whiter than white former presidential candidate, the same who has a talent for marrying rich widows, owns a 74 foot yacht. He shelters it, in all senses of the word, including fiscal, in Rhodes Island rather than in Mass, the state he represents, the state where he lives when he is not in DC. Taxes happen to be lower in R I, but there is no connection, he says.
Senator Kerry wants to be French, it’s well known. Once that he stubbed his toe and there were journalists within hear-shot, he muttered loudly, “Ah, merde!” The Senator could have put his yacht in dry-dock in France. I could have arranged it for him. Would have cost little.
