Logos and LEGOs and…Debbie Wasserman Schultz!

One would think that given the sorry state of our country the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, might actually have something intelligent and inspiring to say. Guess again! The esteemed chairman of the DNC is setting new lows in political babble.

In the space of the past few days she attacked Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney for having the audacity to suggest that “corporations are people” and then lambasted Governor Rick Perry after his announcement to run for the presidency calling all Republican candidates “LEGO blocks”.

Is Exxon Mobil a person?

In essence, according to Ms. Wasserman Schultz, the entire private sector and the Republican candidates are just logos and LEGOs. That’s quite an observation from the head of a major political party.

All this time I thought we were human

This important news item was quickly picked up by Think Progress, the left wing blog, funded by George Soros, and protector of our liberties. Using their standard breathtaking announcements, Think Progress trumpeted the inhumanity of American corporations and the disgraceful political values of the Republican candidates. One supporter even commented that “all corporate shareholders should be put under house arrest.” I assume that would include Mr. Soros and anyone having a pension fund, 401K or other retirement investments.

Ms Wasserman Schultz strongly reminds me of, Katie Morosky, the character played by Barbara Streisand in the movie “The Way We Were”; Katie is a rabid political activist whose key purpose appears to be the activism itself without regard to condequences. Watching Ms. Wasserman Schultz in action is as if she’s trying to morph herself into the Barbara Streisand role.

Look at those capitalist plunderers!

So what is a corporation? Ms Wasserman Schultz asks: “Is Exxon Mobil a person?”  “Does GE have human like qualities?” If she’s referring to the corporate logos probably not. But, if you ask Exxon Mobil’s 85,000 employees and GE’s 287,000 workers, I believe they would say they were people. If you question each corporation’s millions of shareholders, they would probably tell you that they have human like qualities. In fact many of them are actually democrats and even union members!

GE: Don't we have human qualities?

On the subject of being LEGO like Ms Wasserman Schultz likes to say that all Republican candidates are so similar they might as well be LEGO blocks. Couldn’t the same be said for Ms Wasserman Schultz, Howard Dean, Senator Harry Reid, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and President Barack Obama? I suppose if these five LEGO blocks had paid a little more attention to corporate functions and management (done by actual people) they might even be able to read a balance sheet and income statement!  Think of the impact that might have had on our debt!

Change is easy...just replace a few LEGO blocks!

Mitt Romney: “Corporations are people”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “Is Exxon Mobil a person?”

Hubbell Gardner(The Way We Were): “People are more important than their principles.”

Katie Morosky(The Way We Were):  “People ARE their principles “!

 

And that’s the way it is here: “a little left of right”
