Free Speech Letters, 6/28/11

What has the crybaby done for me lately?
So Rep. Weiner has resigned. The more apt question is what has Boehner done to create jobs? What has Boehner done to force the American wealthy to pay for the war in Iraq/Afghanistan that he helped President Bush start? Boehner is making a big deal about not wanting troops on the ground in Libya but the thesis in Libya is exactly what he supported, “democratizing the region,” in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s time Boehner stopped cutting the legs out from under the middle class and started removing the pedestals that the rich are propped up on. Tax the top one percent and get this country EMPLOYED again!

Thanks for the stick love
I just read your GREAT article on A Wiggle In Its Walk at Wegerzyn … where I work as the horticulturist and where I experience the sculpture on a daily basis.
Your article was extremely good; I thought: well written (real flair) and with a clear understanding of what the work and Patrick are all about. Thank you, thank you!
The public response has been very good and your piece can only enhance that response.
I gather you did not meet him while he was here?  If not, I’m sorry, because he’s an incredibly nice man, with NO artistic ego to get in the way of his working with everyone. If you did not meet him and ever get the chance, it’s worth your time to do so.
Thank you again and again for a great piece … good writing is such a pleasure to read!

PETA gone wild
PETA went WAAAY over the top this time. They ARE a bunch of radicals and need to STFU about their silly cause. I’m an animal lover, believe me. I LOVE all creatures, great and small. I just love eating some of them BETTER! I believe the good Lord put all little creatures here for us to enjoy. For supper. I don’t care who you think you are or what you THINK you know, but man (and woman) requires protein in the form of MEAT. Period. Sheesh!
