  •  I Feel Your Pain, KV (11+ / 0-)

    When my cousin and her hubby came to town, we were fine for hours until I said something about unemployment and they started spurting hate about illegal immigrants.

    I lost control and actually danced around saying No, no, no, no. We were standing in a blocked-off street across from the Capitol building, between two buildings of the Library of Congress.

    I wonder what Thomas Jefferson would have thought.

    Let there be light. Then let there be a cat, a cocktail, and a good book.

        Well, his grandchildren adored him, and he adored them. He became their father. The house was always overflowing with grandchildren, and there are many wonderful stories that the grandchildren tell, particularly about running after him with delight in the garden, chasing him, enjoying watching the blossoms come up, knowing though never to set foot in a planting bed. He would never have to tell them. He never raised his voice to them. He would simply say "Do" or "Do not" very quietly. And they listened. There was never a question. No wish of theirs was too small for him. Ellen said he seemed to read their hearts. He was like...he would wave a fairy wand and produce exactly what they wanted: a first silk dress, a guitar, a watch. He knew their hearts. They could come to him with problems; they could talk to him. This reserved, austere man just unwound with his grandchildren, just let himself go, understood them, responded to them.

        I think Mister Jefferson would have similar thoughts of JG.

        As we have long suspected here on dKos, the answer really does turn out to be "pie"

        At least, I can't see it.

        We need another Huey P. Long and federal funding for abortion. -9.00, -4.05
