At the Firehouse

Ned after two beers:

“My secret fantasies involve older, overweight women; -- if that ever got out I’d probably get elected to Congress. And politics ain't ready for me: I’m a conservogressive: conserve our nation’s freedom & beauty; strong military/strong borders; everybody’s got a job; affordable education & health-care. Use money wisely but don’t let it buy votes. ‘In God we believe and in the United States we put our trust.’ After a couple-of-years with the tax-policies of the Nixon or even Eisenhower Administrations {adjusted for inflation} foreign indebtedness will cease and we’ll have prosperity for all. Never happen, of course; average folks will die broke. Ike as President was dull and sometimes dithering but an accountable grownup."
