Congresswoman Juanita Millender-McDonald, a Democratic hack politician, died yesterday at her home in Carson. While most commentators believe that we should not speak ill of the dead, I have never held this view.
Ms. Millender-McDonald was a terrible politician, believing that high taxes on successful wage earners were the sign of an enlightened nation. If that were so, France would be the envy of the world.
She supported divisive legislation to punish all Americans for the inhumanity of slavery -- even though no living person personally participated, in whole or in part, in such actions.
She was an adherent to the militant secular religion of environmentalism, believing that crushing the U.S. economy would slow so-called made-made global warming.
She supported higher oil prices at the gas pump by prohibiting oil companies from drilling for oil in the middle of no where in Alaska, even though such an idea is wildly popular among Alaskans. (Liberals know best! What, you local folks actually want to drill in the middle of nowhere. Well, you are just too stupid to decide this issue!)
Ms. Millender-McDonald was soft on the war against Islamic fascism and would have surrendered to Osama bin Ladin. Ms. Millender-McDonald voted against the interests of everyday Americans everyday she was in Congress.
She will not be missed.
