Kindred in thought

For some time how I have been meaning to express solidarity with Michael Harp, a man who not only provides a breath of fresh air and a voice of reason in counterpoint to the cadre of tea partiers who repeatedly write to your paper (not to deny their right to do so, not at all) and more important, a man with whom I usually agree.

As for the topic of his most recent letter, hell yes, I have long considered the Republicans and especially the Tea Party the party of repression if you’re not part of their circle. It is highly ironic that the Tea Party not too long back compared Obama to Hitler — guess which regime comes to mind when I think of the Tea Party crowds?

And, you’d think they’d advocate abortion for women they consider undesirables, as it would lower the number of undesirables they would produce.
