Conservatives are big meanies, right? We hate women, and minorities and children. We want dirty air and water, and we would throw Granny over the cliff in a heartbeat. All because we want to take money from poor people and give it to rich people.
Today I took my two-year old twin grandkids out for their first fishing experience. It was Grandpa heaven – digging the worms, baiting the hooks, enjoying the warm sunshine on the dock with a picnic lunch. Lydia caught a fat little catfish right away, and minutes later Conrad caught a perch. They were mesmerized, and Grandpa was a hero. “Goodbye, Mr. Fish,” they waved, as we threw them back in the water to get bigger for next time.
Yeah, I kind of care about these little guys. So much that I will do anything to protect them and their futures. I am compelled to work toward reducing the debt so they won’t be burdened with crushing taxes. I want to strengthen our private sector economy so they can have meaningful jobs and live in a secure, prosperous nation. I am driven to improve our educational system so their adult lives will be rich and rewarding. I would never condone anything in their environment that would harm them in any way.
Liberals, you can accuse me, and my fellow conservatives, of a lot of things. But let’s drop the crap about how we hate women and children.
Tom Balek – Rockin’ On the Right Side
Here’s a song I wrote for the kids a while back, looking forward to this day!
Let’s go fishin’, it’s a beautiful day
There’s not a single cloud in the sky, now, what do you say?
Nothin’ better than a fish on your line
Just take him off and throw him back, he’ll be bigger next time
