Courting The Enemy

March 9, 2012 by  

Democrats for Santorum. Mitt Romney’s supporters are still smarting over appeals by Rick Santorum’s team to get Democrats to vote for their guy in the Republican primary in Michigan. Their efforts, which included robocalls to Democratic voters, were only partially successful. USA Today reported that 9 percent of Michigan voters identified themselves as Democrats. “More than half of those voters, or 53%, said they voted for Santorum,” the newspaper reported. But it wasn’t enough to give Santorum the win.

Guess we didn’t mail enough Christmas cards. The U.S. Postal Service ended 2011 with its worst three months in history. Fourth quarter losses came to $3.3 billion, the Postal Service revealed. It is losing so much money that some analysts predict it will have to declare bankruptcy by the end of the year. Maybe it’s time to consider a proposal I first advanced 30 years ago: Let’s give the Postal Service to FedEx and UPS Inc. and insist they pay taxes on all the grounds, buildings and vehicles they acquire.

Your stimulus money at work. The Omaha Public Schools used more than $130,000 in Federal stimulus dollars to purchase “diversity manuals” for every teacher, administrator and staff member. Reported the Omaha World-Herald: “The book says that teachers should acknowledge historical systemic oppression in schools, including racism, sexism, homophobia and ‘ableism.’” In case the last one is new to you, it means discrimination or prejudice against people with disabilities.

Wish Hillary would listen to Bill. Speaking at an energy conference recently, former President Bill Clinton said that this country should “embrace” the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport oil from Canada to refineries in Texas. The State Department, where his wife Hillary serves as Secretary, has refused to grant permits for the pipeline to be built across our border with Canada. Maybe Bill should have a chat with his wife.
