Why Is Cindy Sheehan Smiling?
Air America in Trouble??
Plus the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that WHAT-AM is dropping Al Franken and Randi Rhodes. Last weekend, I heard Darryl Parks on 700 WLW radio making statements to the same effect including predicting the cancellation of the Randi Rhodes show in certain markets. WLW is one most successful of over 1,200 Clear Channel radio stations with listeners in 38 states.
Everyday on the way home from work, I try interspersing my listening of Sean Hannity with some music and Air America. Because my drive takes a little over an hour, I catch some of Ed Schultz and Randi Rhodes. Ed is OK but relatively boring. He talks with callers at length which indicates to me he doesn't have many.
Randi Rhodes must be the worst national radio host there is. At the beginning of each show she either goes on about her sex appeal and how some Republican politico would be happier if he had sex with her or does an poor politically oriented evangelical preacher routine which is supposed to be funny. Randi can run together disparate thoughts so fast that it's difficult to keep up with why they don't make sense.
Shouldn't be much of a loss if Air America goes under. Instapunk has some great insight and good suggestions on what Air America can do to survive.

Excellent Men's Issues Site
Part of the intro to her site:
I write on a wide variety of topics, from gender issues to academic politics to the debate over religion and secularism in America to the struggle for democracy and the Communist legacy in Russia. One of my goals in my writing is to cut through left/right stereotypes and focus on the issues from an independent perspective. My politics can be described as libertarian/conservative -- leaning more libertarian on some issues and more conservative on others.
I am a strong believer in individual rights and limited government. I believe in judging people as individuals, not on the basis of membership in a group. I believe that reality trumps ideology, left or right. I believe Western democracy, flawed through it is, is worth defending. Perhaps most important, I believe that it should be possible for honest and intelligent people to disagree on political issues and respect each other.
Available articles at her site include:
God Talk (January 2001)
The First Amendment vs. freedom of speech.
Where the Boys Are (February 2001)
Is America shortchanging male children?
The Mommy Wars (July 2000)
Why feminists and conservatives just don't get modern motherhood

All of the Sudden, Lots of Attention
I covered this topic here.
Now an article in USA Today gives figures that 135 females get Bachelor degrees for every 100 males and that the gender gap will continue to widen. Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds picks up on is and the ball is now rolling. Glenn Reynolds addresses the issue in this Tech Central column. The article in USA Today also mentions other ways men are falling behind.
Other spots the subject is addressed are a college student, Ann Althouse and Lies and Statistics (mostly lies this time).
Maybe things will start to get better. In the meantime, remember, your sons need your support more than ever.

Why Are Democrats Democrats
This reminded me of a farmer I knew who passed away a couple of years ago. At the time of his death, the farmer had a net worth of approximately $10,000,000.
This man was a devout Catholic. He once paid $10,000 for a signed photograph of the Pope to hang on his wall. Every Sunday and holy day of obligation, he could be seen at Mass. At the times he was too ill to attend he would watch a Mass on television. As prescribed by the Church, he did the sacrament of Reconciliation, etc. He refused to attend his daughter's wedding because she didn't get married in the Catholic church. A little much but illustrates my point on how seriously this man took his religion.
During Bill Clinton's campaign for a second term I asked him if he know that Clinton and the Democrats supported a woman's right to abortion. He did not. I told him that I wasn't voting for Clinton because of this and other reason. The farmer replied that he was voting Democrat because "everyone knows that the Democrats have done more for farmers than the Republicans ever would."
Politics is very much a game of power. Most politicians are politicians because they want to be in a position of power. The paradox of democracy is that to have power you have to convince a majority of the people to allow you to have that power. One really good way to do that is to take money from someone (the evil rich and evil corporations) and give it to someone else (groups of people that exist in large enough numbers to enable you to win an election if they vote for you).
Thus, many are Democrats because they believe that if they vote for Democrats they will get something for nothing, a free handout. Of course, the Democrats elected to power have to make sure these people never gain true independence because they (the Democrats) would no longer be able to lure their votes by promises of free money and other handouts. Farmer, "poor" people, whomever, the Democrats are trying to by their votes except for those in the top 5% of income.
For some, the fun of being a Democrat is living in an expensive house, in a lily white suburb shielded from the masses, getting rich off these same corporations you criticize while you pontificate about the evils and selfishness of others. And pretending you care.
I feel strongly that some higher officers, including Brigadier General Janis Karpinski, got off too easy on this one.

Psychologist Comes to Lynndie's Defense
Amador, who has his own website, has extensive media experience and has published several books. I wonder is he has spoken to Lynndie given this regarding the Unabomber: -"Amador, who never met Kaczynski at all, based his judgment on the "delusional beliefs" he detected in Kaczynski's writing."
My father is a clinical psychologist and I grew up knowing many psychologists. During the 1980's, I worked for approximately 5 years at one of the most reputable mental health centers in Tennessee. I view everything mental health professionals say with a jaundiced eye.
Psychology is a very inexact science. In general the people I worked with at the mental health center were the craziest bunch of people I ever worked with in any setting. Lots of agendas, personal issues, etc.
I am something of a health/fitness freak, much more so when I worked at the mental health center. My favorite activity at that time was whitewater kayaking. One of the other workers who smoked two packs of Pall Malls a day constantly told me that I was at greater risk of dying than he. His reasoning was that I participated in a high risk activity. A heart attack at age 43 followed by a double by pass, shut him up.
I've worked in health clubs, at a newspaper, nursing home, and now work as a computer programmer. No where was the staff nearly as crazy as that at the mental health center. Additionally, they could weave a great sounding rationalization to support nearly anything.
attorneys use "the defendant isn't responsible for her/his actions" defense whenever there is no real defense. The result can be that responsible people get away with crimes they shouldn't.
Let's treat adults as adults. Poor, poor, Lynndie. Couldn't say "No" to her boyfriend.
Cows, Constitution and the Ten Commandments
THREE THINGS THAT WE MUST THINK ABOUT IN THE YEARS TO COME: COWS, THE CONSTITUTION, AND THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington. And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and we're not using it anymore.
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse! You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery" and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians! It creates a hostile work environment!
BTW - Noticed that the spell checker provided by blogspot doesn't recognize the word "blog."
The few persons who have visited my blog may be surprised that I came out a little to the left economically. A better indication of the source of many of my views is the Social Libertarian/Authoritarian score. My score is more anti-authoritarian than Ghandi.
To me, this makes perfect sense of my views concerning some of the issues regarding the Boy Scouts, Christianity, etc. I see the lefties (ACLU and many others) as taking an authoritarian approach in attempting to force these groups to conform to their (ACLU, etc.) interpretation of how the world should be. While the Boy Scouts, Christians, atheist, Frisbeetarians, may not be right, forcing them to conform is not always right either. Historical authoritarian figures include Stalin, Hitler and Margaret Thatcher according to politicalcompass.org.
My political compass
Economic Left/Right: -1.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.69
BTW - a Frisbeetarian is someone who believes the when you die your soul goes up and lies on the roof like a Frisbee.
Huh!! Cherokees and the Ten Commandments
Never dreamed of something like this. The Cherokee Nation, not having to conform to the Bill of Rights or the ACLU's interpretation of it, has decided to display the Ten Commandments in the council house where government meetings are held. The motion passed unanimously
While I grew up just across the mountains from Cherokee and visited Cherokee many times, I never know the Cherokee had such a strong Christian leaing. Sure hope the white man visitors can stand the pain of viewing the Ten Commandments.

The Devil Made Her Do It
As has become the custom Lynndie England and her attorney has taken the tried and trued approach of "it's the man's fault." According to this article at CNN.com, it seems "was impressionable and under the sway of her soldier boyfriend, whom prosecutors have labeled the ringleader of detainee abuse."
Seems she needs a lesson on equal responsibility to go with those equal rights.
Just Not Right
Jesus himself consorted with and recruited prostitutes and other social outcasts into his flock. The school has lost an opportunity to show a child the loving, caring, brave side of Christianity instead of the side that rejects and shuns all that scares them.
'No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place' - Zen proverb
Matthew 25:40 - And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
As I remember in my readings, Jesus didn't reject people. He drove the merchants out of the temple and often rubbed it in the faces of the Pharisees. But he always accepted anyone who came to him.
Somewhere, my understanding and the understanding of those that run this school took different forks in the road. If your faith and belief are strong enough, the presence of a child whose parents are gay would not be a threat.
The fact that this girls parents wanted to send her to a Christian school and decided to take no action when the girl was rejected gives me great respect for them.
Towards the end of the article there is another case where a lesbian girl insists on kissing her girlfriend on school grounds. When I was in high school holding hands, kissng, etc. was not allowed. I say this should be the rule in school regardless of sexual orientation.

How Bad Is It? Gas Price Fixing
Bill Cunningham is an attorney turned talk show host and a very intelligent man. Bill is on a first name basis with Newt Gingrich and other national Republican big wigs. The phrase "You're a great American." frequently heard on The Sean Hannity Show was coined by Bill. Bill gave Sean permission to use it.
When Bill says the free market isn't working and the oil companies need to be sued, believe it. He is no liberal flunky.

The Born A Vol Story
1951 is also the year the the University of Tennessee won its first national championship in football.
The other sutdent's wife drove my mother to the hospital but the problem was neither knew the route to the hospital. Cruising the streets of Memphis in a Model A Ford, the two finally found the hospital after consulting with a couple of drunks on a street corner. A few months later we moved back to Knoxville and I never saw the hospital I was born in until I was 33 years old.
I first became aware of Volunteer football at the age of 5 when Johnny Majors was playing. My father would listen to the games on the radio and frequently comment, "Wow, that Johnny Majors is something." My father had played high school football in Hamilton, Ohio. His team was runner-up to the state champions his junior year and won the state championship his senior year. Unfortunately, he had quit the team half way through the year because practices were too rough.
Because I was tall and skinny, until after high school, I always played basketball. But football is my favorite spectator sport. I virtually get shivers up my spine when I think of cheering on the Volunteer squad in with 108,000 other fans in Neyland Stadium.
When I was born my father was a student at the University of Tennessee where he earned his M.A. and Phd. in psychology. Upon graduation the university hired my father as an associate professor. He spent his entire career as a professor at the University of Tennessee. When my youngest sister entered grade school my mother entered the Univesity of Tennessee while in her mid-forties. She eventually earned a B.A. and M.A. My older sister earned a B.A. and J.D. from U.T. I earned a B.S. and M.S. from U.T. One of my brothers earned a B.S. from U.T. My youngest sister earned her Phd. at U.T. after getting her B.A. and M.S.W. from other schools not worth mentioning.
That's a lot of history at one school. In 1990, I moved to Maysville, Ky and currently live just across the Ohio River from Maysville. People often asked me if I was going to root for the University of Kentucky Wildcats and all I could say is, "Go Vols!" For many years I endured harassment and hardship living in this strange land. Last year redemption came.
Chris Lofton, a native Maysvillian, first string all-state basketball and first string all-state football player signed a basketball scholarship with the University of Tennessee after not even being recruited by U.K. Now, in Maysville, KY I can go into the Wal-Mart, a couple of sporting goods stores and several other stores and buy Big Orange hats, shirt, sweats, and other paraphenalia.
Chris, a truly good kid, earned Freshman All-American honors at Tennessee. Tubby Smith apologized to Chris and his parents for not recruiting him. I'm sure Tubby is truly sorry because Chris is one of the top three point shooters in the country. Tubby is going to have to watch Chris sink 40 footers against him for 3 more years.
More Money to Poorer Colleges and Universities
Why should the rich kids at the Ivy League schools and such get all the money. If we spread the money around to all schools the overall quality of education would rise. The typical college graduate would be better educated. The entire country would benefit the better operation of the businesses, schools, governmental agencies, etc. that these college graduate run.

A Few Examples of Hostility Towards Christians
In March, 2003 Dean made disparaging, bigoted remarks regarding fundamentalist preachers.
Rod Dreher's article, "The Godless Party" sums up why many Christians are leaving the Democratic Party and other social prejudices against Christians.
At tolerance.org, a web project of The Southern Poverty Law Center, you can read about the evils for how Christmas is celebrated in this country. The point of the article is that Christians should give in to the intolerant demands of tolerance.org and remove any reference to Christmas during Christmas. This is necessary because other religions, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist have celebrations during this same general time period. Additionally, the anniversary of the prophet Zarathrustra falls during this time.
Imagine going to India, the home of Hinduism, and demanding that people carefullyl avoid using expressions that relate to Hinduism or not having Hindu related public displays during times of Hindu celebration. The same for the Asian countries that practice Bhuddism. Of course, I'm sure the the Islamic countries would be glad to discontinue the public references to Islam, as well as allow infidels into the city of Mecca.
I have no problem with people of other religions publicly displaying, publicly celebrating, etc. their religion. Anyone who cannot accept the public display o a religious event is intolerant. Maybe we should insist that the Greek churches quite calling their Greek Festivals, Greek Festivals. After all, this may offend Turkish or Italian people.
Currently, the nomination of John Roberts to the Supreme Court has raised much reaction from those that can't accept a Catholic in a position of authority. Fifty years ago or more, Pres. Bush would have been hailed as a great civil libertarian for nominating a Catholic. It took over 150 years for this country to elect a Catholic president. It seems liberals only believe in diversity when those being diversified fit into the left wing, liberal model.
More to come. Time to go to bed.

Liberal Columnist Uses Katrina to Attack Christians
A liberal co-worker pointed out Melinda Henneberger's article, "Overturning the Gospels," in the online edition of Newsweek by sending me an email with the subject line: "Someone who gets it!"
The problem is that Melinda Henneberger doesn't get it. I wonder if she even has a clue. She starts out by makeing the point that this is not a Bible verse: "God helps those who help themselves." She quotes Bill McKibben from Harper's who references a five year old unknown survey by a marketing research company, The Barna Group, that supposedly states that 3 out of 4 Americans think this is a Bible verse. (I assume The Barna Group is the source of this as it is the only place I could locate a survey on this subject.) The Barna Group had two places on their site that had a reference to this. In one spot Barna refers to the subjects of the survey as "born again Christians." Another place says the subjects are a random sampling 1002 adults from the general population. One could quibble over the validity of the survey(s) but it's really not that important.
I wonder how long and far McKibben had to look to find this info. It must have been really important to him to find something negative about Christian religious belief even though if it was a sampling of the general population about 23% weren't Christian. Check it out at U.S Census.
Melinda continues on:
Now, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, we have seen—and been unable to look away from— the direct result of this self-deception.?!?! Self-deception because a portion of the people, maybe or maybe not Christian, aren't sure of the source of a single sentence.
We as a nation—a proudly, increasingly loudly Christian nation—have somehow convinced ourselves that the selfish choice is usually the moral one, too.The admonition "God helps those who help themselves" was taught to me in parochial school as a mesage to do everything you can to succeed, do the right thing, drive carefully (yes, drive carefull), and be a good person and God will help you. If you don't put forth effort, God won't put forth much effort to help you.
What I was taught certainly seems different than Melinda's opinion. Part of being a good person is helping others. Additionally, Melinda may be too young to remember how loudly Christian this nation was 30, 40 years ago and more.
Melinda goes on and on:
Thus do we deny the working poor a living wage, resent welfare recipients expected to live on a few hundred dollars a month, object to the whopping .16 percent of our GNP that goes to foreign aid—and still manage to feel virtuous about all of the above.Where does this "we" come from? Maybe she's denying someone a live wage but I'm just doing the best I can to get by myself. She's not describing anyone I know.
The next paragraph starts with:
Which is how "Christian'' morality got to be all about other people's sex lives...What?!?! What a leap!!! She continues:
Less so. Telling gay people what they can't do? Piece o' cake. But responding to the wretched? Loving the unlovable? Forgiving the ever-so-occasionally annoying people you actually know?The crux of it all, Christians are horrible because they won't endorse gay marriage. I wonder how long it will be until the liberals will start putting people in jail because they oppose homosexuality and gay marriage as in Canada. Maybe Melinda would prefer Christians deal with gays the way Muslims do.
Melinda continues to ramble for a few more paragraphs with examples of how this action or that comment points out how bad Christians and/or Bush are, how suspending some environmental regulations concerning gas is a bad thing, etc., etc. Melinda does not seem to be able to make the distinction between Bush, Christians, environmental issues, energy supply concerns and maybe anything.
Maybe Melinda feels really guilty for having it all. She's married to an editor at the Washington Post and lives in Maryland. I bet it's not a neighborhood anything like the 9th Ward in New Orleans. She and her family probably have more money than they really "need." They should give it to the Salvation Army, a nice Christian organization that does all the things she claims Christians don't. Or, she could spread it out amongst all those churchs that provided shelter for the refugees
Melinda ends with this:
I still dare to hope Democrats may yet remember why they are Democrats, though. And that would be a real come-to-Jesus moment.Why are Democrats Democrats. God only knows.
This is what being a Democrat was for one man:
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.Melinda overturns this philosophy. For her its all about what the country can do for you.
My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

"The evidence of the physical acts are quite overwhelming. But there are mitigating factors," Axelrod said. "He brainwashed her."

Woman Kills Boyfriend in Ohio Despite Proctective Order
Woman kills her boyfriend and pays boys to help here hide the body.
"Jarnigan (the victim - added) filed for a civil protective order in Butler County Domestic Relations Court. The order to keep Romano away from him was dismissed at a hearing five days later."
I wonder if she'll claim she was abused. That's the easy way for a woman to get away with murder.
In 1995, Gov. Brereton Jones of Kentucky granted clemency to 13 women who were in prison for killing or fighting back against their abusive spouses, fathers, boyfriends, etc. Like your typical courageous politician, Gov. Jones did this on his last day in office. In some of the cases, I must agree that this was the right thing to do. But, as I remember, one woman, in Louisville, had hired hitman to kill her husband (who was a policeman) and abuse wasn't alleged until after she had been convicted. Another woman in Flemng County had shot her estranged husband in the back through a closed door while he walked to his car.
Abuse alleged in the past but no evidence whatsoever. Where is the cut-off point that indicates the abuse warrants justifiable homicide? My mother spanked her six children with a long wooden spoon. Once she spanked my sister so hard with a hair brush that bruch broke.
I worked at a small Kentucky newspaper at the time and remember the clemencies well. Try finding news stories in the WWW about it now. The full truth doesn't fit with the liberal agenda.
Governor Celeste of Ohio had earlier taken similiar action when he, bravely, left office in 1990. In California, women prisoners have their own website to garner sympathy and support. How could a woman actually do something BAD? Remember, all women are victims and any illegal acts they commit stem from their having been victimized.
Some see overturning the judgement of the courts and a jury of your peers as a good thing.
This is the "Knight in Shining Armor" syndrome. Honorable men must rescue the fair maidens in distress, even if they aren't in distress and even if they are causing the distress. It's ironic that the feminists appeal to the medival values of men to attain their goals.
Men make up about 75% of all murder victims and the overwhelming majority of victims of violent crime. This needs and deserves more attention.

Liberal Conspiracy to Hold Down Blacks
"The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." --Verbal Kint, The Usual Suspects
Liberal Democrats have successfully conspired to hold down the Black masses for over 40 years. The beginnings of this modern oppression took root with Lyndon B. Johnson's "Great Society." Malcolm X considered Johnson a "fox" and Barry Goldwater a "wolf."
Malcolm X writes in his autobiography, "In a wolf's den, I'd always known exactly where I stood; I'd watch the dangerous wolf closer than I would the smooth, sly fox. The wolf's very growling would keep me alert and fighting to survive, whereas I might be lulled and fooled by the tricky fox."
From an editorial at the "The Militant" website:
As Malcolm X put it, working people need to shed all illusions that there are fundamental differences between Democrats and Republicans. “One is the wolf, the other is a fox,” he said. No matter which one of the two is in the White House working people go to the wall. In the 1964 presidential elections, when the main candidates were Lyndon B. Johnson (the “peace” candidate) and Barry Goldwater (the “war” candidate), Malcolm X exposed the deceit of this phony distinction.
“The shrewd capitalists, the shrewd imperialists,” he said, “knew that the only way people would run towards the fox [Johnson] would be if you showed them the wolf [Goldwater]. So they created a ghastly alternative… And at the moment he [Johnson] had troops invading the Congo and South Vietnam.”
What does a fox do to its victims? It uses its cunning to gain their trust and trick them into believing their deceptions. The deception here lays in the lie that liberal Democrats want to help Blacks to rise above the ravages of past slavery and current racism.
One of the keystones of this deception are welfare programs purported to "help" the oppressed. However, the actual effects are quite different.
Government subsidized housing projects create ready made ghettos in which to keep Blacks in a contained, controllable area. Who cares about the violence, murder, rape, and drugs that go on in these areas. The liberal Democrats are in their plush homes in the suburbs and countryside.
Financial, medical, child care, food subsidies work to create an ever growing dependence on government handouts for sustinance. However, these programs are designed in such a way that breaking away from them and attaining true independence is quite difficult. Somehow, the programs just don't supply that needed boost to get one over the hump and becoming self-supporting.
Why would liberal Democrats create such a conspiracy? Racism. Increasingly, during the 20th century, courts were affirming the civil rights of Black. During the 1950's and 1960's the Civil Rights movement reached critical mass. Using the slyness of a fox, liberal Democrats pretended (still pretend) to be the champion of civil rights for Blacks.
Liberal Democrats lured Blacks into their lair with the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the "Great Society" programs instigated by Lyndon Johnson. The programs worked wonderfully at keeping Blacks subjugated.
From what states have the last three Democratic presidents, Johnson, Carter and Clinton, hailed? Texas, Georgia, and Arkansas. All states that were members of the Confederacy and fought to continue slavery. Hmmm.
Democratic Senator Robert Byrd was once a member of the KKK.
And the liberal Democrats have used the tactic described by Malcolm X, created "a ghastly alternative," i.e. George W. Bush, etc.
The evil that Blacks face lurks not in George W. Bush or the Republican Party but in the trickery and deceit of the liberal Democrats and their conspiracy to subjugate the Blacks.
Liberal Democrats have convinced the Black world that the Democrats' racism doesn't exist.
But it does.

Will Bush Suffer the Consequences?
Liberals Use Pain and Suffering of Victims To Score Points
Who wants to really profit from the pain and suffering of the victims of this disaster. Sure, shysters will be working their scams. Various companies and individuals hope to gain some windfall profits by providing needed legitimate services and products. But the ones really trying to gain from the pain and suffering are the liberals.
On Air America, Ed Schultz complained that George Bush's speech wasn't inspirational enough. You can't eat and drink inspiration. Randi Rhodes claimed the levees failed because of funding cutbacks. Meanwhile, conservative talkshow host, Sean Hannity, worked to raise aid for the victims of the storm. Those levees weren't designed to handle a class 4 or 5 hurricane. The levees have actually heavily contributed to the loss of wetlands that provide natural protcection for New Orleans thereby making a natural disaster, such as the one we now see, more likely.
The liberals are so desperate to score point they've taken to criticicism of Barbara Bush, the president's mother. You better watch your words because a liberal may be close by to crucify you.
I wonder how the race baiters such as Howard Dean, Jesse Jackson and Al "Speedy" Sharpton explian the lack of aid to St. Bernard and Plaquemines parishes. St. Bernard is over 88% white and Plaquemines is about 70% white. Howard Dean made the brilliant observation, "We have to come to terms with the ugly truth that skin color, age and economics played a significant role in who survived and who did not." Age and economics always makes a difference in who survives natural disasters. People from puberty to middle age tend to be stronger and healthier and thus survive. Part of Darwin's theory of evolution that the libs love so much. Too bad they can't accept it. People of higher economic levels generally have more resources, therefore they survive more often. Amazing. Do you think that the reason that most of the victims in New Orleans are black is because over 67% of the population there is black? Maybe.
Howard Dean belongs to the rich, white, powerful class that he so love to criticize. Mr. Dean "said he once considered East Hampton his "first home.""
From the December 28, 2003, New York Times regarding Mr. Dean:
All told, for instance, Dr. Dean's parents have given him and his family nearly $1 million in cash gifts over the last two decades, including a single gift of $200,000 in the early 1980's. And his wife's parents gave the couple $60,000 in 1985 to help them pay $161,700 in cash for the family's house on Burlington's south side, freeing the couple from monthly mortgage payments.
The Deans have amassed a nest egg of about $4 million, not including the value of their house, despite an annual income that has never exceeded $170,000.
