Posts Tagged ‘Joe McCarthy’

All should appreciate the FBI speaking up.  I wish more of our leaders would.  But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up.  Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., calling Trump’s judicial attacks “the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” told The New York Times: “If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it …  There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary.”
Speaking of Donald Trump…
“He and I have both been incredibly blessed to have our opportunities in this country, and if you ask me, after military service, the most patriotic thing you can do is pay your taxes,” Cuban said.  “I have gotten a lot from this country and feel like I owe back something.  That’s not his feeling, and that’s his choice.”
  —  Mark Cuban
[As an admitted life-long Democrat (social liberal / fiscal conservative), I’d have to ask Senator Graham: “What time does your conscience say it is, now?”
I’d like to ask Mr. Cuban: “What is your opinion of any ‘America loving’, self-anointed patriot who is actually a chicken-hawk (a person who speaks out in support of war, yet has avoided active military service) and who also doesn’t want to pay his taxes in peace time or in war time?”
And I’d like to ask Mr. Trump: “We know you dodged the draft (four student deferments and one medical deferment) when it was your opportunity to serve, so where are the tax returns?”  —  KMAB]
