Shakespeare lesson for 'lefties'

In response to Kevin Buck's Shakespeare-laden column in the Sept. 1 edition of The Signal ("The dog days of discourse"), I have some thoughts.

"Tea-baggers!" How almost-clever. My, how you lefties do love that little half-witticism.

Now, as to government-(taxpayer)-funded health care, it looks like both the Constitution and the Bard agree on that. As Polonius told Laertes, "Neither a borrower nor a lender be."

We can clearly see the future of these endless government giveaways by simply looking at the state of our own state right here in Commiefornia: bankruptcy and dysfunctional chaos.

But lefties never learn from experience.

Being reliable examples of Einstein's dictum that "The definition of insanity is repeating the same action while expecting different results," they continually advocate throwing OPM (other people's money) at endless social programs with the firm belief that this time, contrary to all the historical precedent, it will not only solve some perceived problem, but prove fiscally sound.

But of course, to liberals, this is "such stuff as dreams are made on."

"What light through yonder window breaks?" Why, it's the public's awareness of the emptiness of the Democrats' promises and their reaction to that awareness.

The fall in Obama's approval numbers, the public's contempt for Congress, the outrage expressed by common people at the various town hall meetings.

This truly is "the winter of our discontent."

"Nothing can come of nothing," a lesson that liberals constantly fail to learn, as evidenced by their endless promotion of schemes to give away money the government simply doesn't have.

But then, "the fool doth think he is wise," and "therein lies the tale."
