My Political Views, Part 2
I suspect the only thing that drives the left as bonkers as refuting Global Warming, is one Denver Bronco Quarterback, named Tim Tebow....he's a wacky Christian you know:
Gotta love it...Tim Tebow is the Atheist/Progressive world's worst nightmare....so much fun watching them lose it when he wins....The Broncos, with the Bengals out as of Saturday, are my "new" team to root for down the stretch in the Playoffs...taking on New England next weekend.
While the loser left hates Tebow, it worships Mother Earth, and the fake science of Man-Made Global Warming..."Chicken Littles" that they be.
My Political Views part #2____
Going through many of her papers, photos, and post cards, after I took possession of her home, that she shared with daughters Cecil, and Eva, back in the late 1990s. Her political leanings, which I had a bit of knowledge about before, came into full light at that time. Wilda was not only a Republican, she was a far right one. A member of many right leaning organizations, she especially, disliked the policies of FDR, and the progressives like Woodrow Wilson, that came before Roosevelt.
I found and kept, invitations to political events, including a personally signed one from newly elected Governor of Ohio, John Bricker, inviting her to his Inauguration in early 1939.
Bricker served as Ohio Governor from 1939 through 1945, was the VP Candidate for the GOP in the 1944 Presidential Election, a losing effort to FDR and his Socialist cohorts. He went on to become a Ohio/US Senator from 1947 until 1959.
Grandma's politics rubbed off on her kids that were interested...I know Eva, Cecil, and Stan Houseworth, my dad, were conservatives...not so much as I would become, but for back in the FDR madness, when America was coddling Communists, they were pretty far to the right. The others, my uncles John and Forrest? I gotta believe John was a Republican, and believe that Uncle "Housie" Forrest, didn't really give a rat's behind about politics.
While the Houseworths and Waldrons were Republican Conservatives...mom's side of the family, consisted on mainly Irish Democrats, with one notable exception. My GG-Grandfather Patrick Feeley, who immigrated from Ireland in 1860, was a rock ribbed Republican from Chester, Pennsylvania, who served in the City Council or as Ward Chairman.
The Democrats are not the friend of the working American, or any American, that I know...in fact both major political parties, have major issues, that I find disturbing. ..I guess I should note that at least two members of the DeVore clan were Republicans...mom, certainly is not a Democrat, and never has been in my years of knowing her.
Tomorrow, I will recollect how my political views have moved from center moderate to far right semi libertarian over the years.....
Photos-Tim Tebow, whether at Florida or with the Denver Broncos, drives the Liberals and Atheists nuts.....Yep,Global Warming, as fake as Barack Obama's Birth Certificate, Grandma Houseworth, standing, in her days at the Scott, Ohio, Phone Company(around 1920), was an early political force for me. John Bricker, Governor and Senator from Ohio from 1939 through 1959, was the GOP VP pick in 1944...and my uncle Bill DeVore, a World War 2 combat veteran, was a union Democrat...other than that, there wasn't much I didn't like about Uncle Bill....we just choose not to discuss politics when I stayed with him and Aunt Agnes, some 40 + years ago, instead talking about our favorite subject, baseball.
