Experts on everything

Terry Haines

As I read the letters from the pseudo-intellectual lefties in our community, I find them expert in the following: world peace, world hunger, how to win a war on terrorism, how to run the government, joblessness, corporate management, housing, timber management, clean air and water, the ozone layer, abortion, animal rites, my diet, gay marriage, god, taxes, health care, energy, Alaska wildlands, homeland security, Tibet, who stole an election, SUVs, and last but not least, what’s good for me and how I should run my life!

Sounds like we should send this group to Washington or the U.N. How could we lose? But first let me see their resumes. Not the schooling. I want to see the howling success in their lives that tells me they can run my life and our country better than those chosen to do it!

And finally, I’m thankful my father’s generation had the guts to fight and kill regimes who did not declare war on us. I find that German and Japanese are difficult languages.
