Anderson: The doomed-economy weight-loss plan


Many new friend requests for my Facebook page. I accepted most of them and now can’t find them on my friends list; don’t know where they went.

While enjoying my sick-time reading, I came to realize how much time I spend commenting online on newspaper columns, including my own. While one meets some interesting people there, the ratio of intelligent to irrational is discouraging.

Checked out the information about the Republican convention that I’d missed. I don’t blame Richard Tisei for attending a Kiwanis pancake breakfast instead. There they go, Republicans fighting each other again instead of creating a unified front against the Democrats who are running this state into the ground. Think we’ll be able to elect the management ability to run our commonwealth during the coming national meltdown?

I am sick of the incompetent governor, the useless liberal Congress, the scandal-a-day in the local media. I’m sick of those whose priority is not freedom with personal responsibility, but forcing their agenda onto other people. I like to assume most readers of this column are rational and concerned about America. If you could read Daniel Smith’s book (from ebooks on Amazon), you might be in a bad mood, too.

Time for bed, need a dose of nighttime NyQuil. Can’t get the #*&*%$ childproof cap off. Knife, scissors, shred, kill.

Hey, I haven’t had any appetite all week, think I’ve lost weight? Wow, 12 pounds! A good start for spring. No more bad mood; I may fit into my favorite clothes by summer. Life is good, until the new Dark Age arrives.

Barbara Anderson of Marblehead is president of Citizens for Limited Taxation and a Salem News columnist.
