After ten years in the House of Representatives and 24 in the Senate, California’s Barbara Boxer is retiring.
Don’t let the door hit you in the tuchas on the way out.
I don’t know which is more appalling–Boxer calling politics a “noble profession,” or The Los Angeles Times’ sycophantic puff piece on how great she’s been ( http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-barbara-boxer-analysis-20161207-story.html ).
But if “noble” means enlarging the government at every opportunity, voting for Obamacare, voting for public funding for abortion, and voting to confirm the appointments of every left-wing tin-pot Democrats could find to head up bureaucracies, sit on federal courts, and make a mess of our republic–well, gee, Washington D.C. is chock-full of noble people.
We have gone from elected officials as public servants to lifelong politicians as our masters, thanks in large part to careerists like Boxer. Their arrogance takes one’s breath away: remember then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (thank you so much, California!) saying, of Obamacare, “You have to pass it to find out what’s in it”?
These–ahem!–leaders are God’s chastisement of our nation for our sins. May He now call us back to our senses: and this time, may we listen!
There are a lot of Boxer types to get rid of, before our country can be right again.
