The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Right on Ike
Thanks to reader Kris for this tasty quote...

In a 1954 letter to his brother Edgar, President Dwight Eisenhower wrote the following:
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.
