Pimp My Recession Part Deux!!

Oh, joy and wonders!! I received of box from Amazon this weekend with a gift for Claire - David McCullough's incredible biography on John Adams, and a treat for myself - David McCullough's new book "1776" (Both books were no#1 New York Times best sellers and winners of the Pulitzer prize at that!). American Revolutionary history...porn for conservatives!!!

The lovely Miss Claire and I went to our marriage prep course this weekend, which had more than it's share of pansy-ass progressives who were only there because they had to be. I don't know why people who have so many problems with the Catholic church stay. If you don't like the Pope and what he has to say, than maybe the Catholic church isn't the place for you. Why not join the United Church, or some other liberal religious outfit, rather than sit in condescension at the rest of us traditional Catholics? Why keep living with the fantasy that in a few years there's going to be a new Pope who's going to change Roman Catholic doctrine to reflect the wish list of the left? It's not going to happen. It's ok if the Catholic church doesn't fit with your liberalism, but would you keep going to McDonald's if you were a vegetarian, and keep complaining about all the beef they serve?

Anyway, hope you're enjoying your weekend. Here's the latest participant in our new feature, "Pimp My Recession", Mr. J.B. from Missouri.

Joe, I live in Missouri, metro Kansas City. I work for Ford Motor Company as an electrician and have been there for 21 years, prior to that I worked for General Motors. My degrees are in psychology, sociology and anthropology. I tend toward conservatism but only from a libertarian perspective. I am a Marine combat veteran of Vietnam and took an oath that has no expiration (to the Constitution). Times have been better economically than they are today, things aren't yet as bad as they were during the Carter Regime however. The current Occupant of the White House appears to be patterning himself after Benito Mussolini (look at the poses) with the failed programs of Franklin Roosevelt for economic guidance. Frankly he scares the hell out of me. I took my wife and sister to Cracker Barrel tonight--the place was packed. The parking lot of the Outback Steak House nearby was quite full as well.

Thanks JB. I'm assuming the Cracker Barrel is a restaurant. In Canada, Cracker Barrel is a brand of delicious cheddar cheese. Mmmmmm cheese.

Cordially

Joe
