We're in it together

Lou Dobbs on ‘the Daily Show’ calls for a return to progressive values:

Why don’t we take on the concept that’s held the country in pretty good stead for 200 years and return to a national vision of shared burdens, shared responsibilities and shared sacrifice.

Why don't we indeed? And that's a conservative speaking.


  1. Yeah
    But these conservatives (the world over) don't usually mean a 50/50 share of burdens, responsibilities and sacrifices.

  2. Yeah, MadPriest. But the radical conservatives we've got in power now don't believe in ANY kind of sharing. They believe you're on your own: "I've got mine; screw you." And that's putting it politely.
