Send ‘Ol Blind Joe to China
THE TOODYAY Herald should be embarrassed to publish the one-sided leftist rantings of Ol’ Blind Joe.
Since he continuously makes it clear that he despises capitalism in his regular columns in The Herald, why doesn’t he (as I urged him in a previous letter to the editor) move to that basket-case country Venezuela where the economy and society have been destroyed by socialism.
When he is there, let him enjoy the poverty, oppression and empty supermarket shelves.
Or perhaps he should move to China where he can experience the not-so-blissful anti-freedom and anti-humanitarian communism first hand.Read more
Perhaps he could stage a protest about the Tiananmen Square massacre of peace-loving Chinese citizens 30 years ago by the Chinese Communist Party.
He could report back to The Herald on his experiences which would be much more enlightening than his current diatribe. (no prizes for guessing why reporting back would be short lived.)
Joe, hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times (capitalism/free society).
Good times create weak men and weak men create hard times (socialism/oppression).
