Newt Gingrich was born on June 17, 1943, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His mother Kathleen Daugherty and father Newton Searles McPherson divorced soon after Newt was born. Kathleen remarried to an Army officer named Robert Gingrich, who adopted the boy. Gingrich has three younger half-sisters, Candace, Susan, and Roberta.Growing up, Gingrich's family moved around frequently, like many military families. He graduated from Baker High School in Columbus, Georgia, and received a B.A. from Emory University in 1965.
I can certainly associate myself with moving frequently; by the time I was eighteen, I had lived in three trailers, five apartments, and twenty-one houses. By the time I graduated high school, I had been enrolled in ten different schools. I believe that moving all over the country made me a better citizen, and I bet it did the same for Gingrich. Maybe it didn't make him, or me, a better person, but I don't have any doubt that Newt loves America just as much as I do. Having seen the whole damn place, I know what is good about America.
I would prefer that Newt had spent some time in the service himself, but compared to someone like Willard, who thinks his sons are serving the country by trying to get him elected, Newt understands what real service looks like. So I like that about him.
I think I can live with Newt's stance on immigration. Personally, I feel the best way to secure our border is to arrest people for hiring illegal aliens. I believe letting some of these employers spend five months in Martha Stewart jail would effectively shut down illegal immigration. As for the drugs and other stuff crossing the border, we need to decide just how bad we don't want that crap here, then take appropriate actions. Seriously, you don't have a "war" with cops. If we have really declared a war on drugs, we should be fighting it with troops. And we should be killing the people responsible for sending all that crap over here. And for all you liberal turds who think the drugs are coming here because American druggies are demanding them, I say kill them, too. Lower the cost of healthcare, jails, government handouts. Remove the dregs of society, improve the society.
I think I can live with Newt's philosophy on globull warming. I tend to agree with him. We should cut back on our carbon emissions; if not cause it may be damaging the atmosphere, then because we should leave something in the trough for those coming after us. Probably more because of the Obama Depression than any vain attempt at saving the planet, I have already cut my driving down to only when absolutely necessary. We no longer run to the store when we need butter or eggs (although with a yard full of chickens, we rarely need for eggs). We make lists, and stop at the store on the way from more important business. And my children do not like it when they miss the school bus. I already paid for the gas in that bus, so I get irate with them when I have to buy more gas to take them to school.
So, I think I may be able to get on the Newt bandwagon. An added bonus to Newt: He will decimate Obowma in a debate. Even MudPILE would have to admit that.
