Men Don't Change

Inspired by a post over t'Library Grape, here's some Harry T:

“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home--but not for housing. They are strong for labor--but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage--the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all--but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine--for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing--but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”

As true or truer still. And, dammit, I missed out on this'un when Cain was shooting his fool ignorance-proud mouth off about not being a reader:

“Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”

Read through the list; it'd be useful if there were more Harrys around today. My uncle used to say Truman was the last of the old guys....
