The other day Henry Osmer questioned my ability to read but I must assure him that I can indeed, although after reading more of his thinking I might wish I couldn't. Henry keeps trying to revise history, suggesting to readers that the Iraq was strictly a Bush/Republican deal. He even suggested I look up the vote, so I did. In the Senate the vote to give the president the authority to use force was 77 yea to 23 nay and the yeas included 48 Republicans and 23 Democrats. In the House it was 297 yea and 133 nay, which included 82 Democrats voting yea with the 215 Republicans. Liberals don't have to like it but the votes were bipartisan, so they can stop trying to change the facts of history any time now.
On another subject, Henry responded to a statement in one of my letters saying solar panels and wind turbines are subsidized by the government. His response was that the Wars in Iraq an Afghanistan cost much more then these subsidies. While true, so what? The subject of my letter was energy production not wars. Liberals like Henry, when unable to respond to a factual statement always either try to change the subject (this example), or try to attack the author of the statement. While Henry offered to engage me in civil debate on issues he has shown he is incapable of doing so. A few days ago he demanded we all turn off Fox News and tune into a MSNBC program. No thanks Henry, though I realize MSNBC and Saturday Night Live are probably where you get all your information. I prefer a balanced network.
To show the absurdity of relying on MSNBC, the other day Chris Mathews gave the definition of racism as: One race, the white race, thinking it has the right to rule all the other races. For readers information that IS NOT the definition of racism. Look it up if you doubt me.
