Were those who investigated Rick Scott’s improprieties which led to a pleading of the fifth “paranoid?” If so, perhaps someone should read the book by the late central NY psychiatrist, Thomas Szaz, The Manufacture of Madness.
Look. Here is the situation. I donate several small monthly amounts to various campaigns. It just happens the credit card I use for these automatic withdrawals was breached when someone apparently made a duplicate copy and went on a spending spree in what I believe to be Rick Scott’s home county. How did someone obtain my credit card number and then was able to duplicate the card? Was it hacking on my computer? I lack evidence for anything, except for one thing. The perps went on a spending spree in Lee County, spending almost $2000 before being stopped.
This act alone has disrupted what little bit of money I am able to give each month to Democrats. Is this just coincidence? I don’t think so. But then, call me paranoid because I lack any evidence while I run my mouth. What does one think the right wing is doing? Have evidence which backs them up when they use advertisements to lie, deceive, libel, provide half-baked truths, and innuendo?
Furthermore, my sources tell me that Rick Scott has yet to appoint an African-American to any of the educational boards of trustees in Florida. Is this true? Rick Scott, the coward from Lee County who bullies those who have much less power and money than he does, but gladly works with those who are wealthy. Subtle bullying in which he and others can live in denial is still the same thing – bullying by cowards.
The arena of “sweat and blood,” which Teddy Roosevelt describes, is one in which a wealthy man challenges big pigs like JP Morgan. You know. The guy whose name is affixed to Chase Bank, the ones who hold my mortgage and other accounts. Another account which was attacked by thieves within two weeks of the event described above.
So, with lack of evidence, I am paranoid. OK. So be it. Amen. Bullies and cowards like Rick Scott and the Koch brothers make accusations such as that.
While on this subject, let’s perhaps speculate why Charlie departed from the Republicans – something which should be of interest to both DEMOCRATS and REPUBLICANS alike. Perhaps it was because there are several occasions when Charlie got into that arena described by TR and fought those who were on his same level. Those people are in the Republican Party and perhaps did not like this. But then, my wisdom is just an abstract term, is it not?
Fact is, TR fought the “bosses” and wealthy “captains of industry” who had just as much money as he did. He got on the wrong side of the Republican pigs who led the party. Unfortunately, TR began to avoid the “arena” and made “friends” with those he fought. He caved in. So when his 5th cousin, Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat who picked up on the programs TR had originally proposed, TR’s Republican children turned against FDR. Turns out, it appears it was Eleanor who had the “balls” in the family. Thank you Eleanor – TR’s niece.
Had TR still been alive during this period, would he, too, have turned on FDR? I doubt it, but cannot say for certain, only answer the question, “what if?” Nevertheless, cowards always stick together, like two feathers on a bird and that is what the TR clan of Oyster Bay, Long Island, did.
