‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran: Collectivist Way Ahead Of Warren And Obama

Patrick Murray on FaceBook brings up an old chestnut, featuring my bloody-minded Congresstool in fine form. Here he anticipates the famous Elizabeth Warren diatribe, which also pre-figured #OccupyResoluteDesk’s “You didn’t build that” in Roanoke, VA.

Virginia led this country to independence. Jim Moran, living in the shadow of Mount Vernon, would cheerfully lead this country back to dependence. Emphasis mine in the transcript:

Q: Should the government protect peaceful citizens against people that want to use force to take their money?
Moran: Yes.
Q: Can you live well if other people can legally gang up on you and forcefully take your money?
Moran: No.
Q: Should the government redistribute its citizen’s wealth by forecefull taking money from some citizens through taxes in order to provide goods and services for others?
Moran: If that’s the quest you’re asking, the answer is: yes. Because . . . the people who are making the wealth in this country are making it as a result of the investment that has been put into the education of the workforce that produces their goods. . .the money that has been put into the roads and transit systems and rails, uh, that carry the commerce that produces much of their profit and the money from their taxes that has gone into the military that protects their wealth.
Q: Did you agree that the government should protect peaceful citizens against people that want to use force to take their money?
Moran: You’ve asked me that question.
Q: Did you agree that the government should protect them:
Moran: Yes.
Q: So, when the government is forcefully taking money from some citizens in order to give it to others. . .
Moran: [sputtering, ejects]

What a sad little tool. Thankfully, someone who can retire this lousy buffoon is at hand:

Moran combines the ugliness of Elizabeth Warren’s policy ideas with the stench of #OccupyResoluteDesk’s gutter campaign

    Good post…except for the fact Massachusetts led us to Independence.  Richard Henry Lee acted on a suggestion from John Adams.

  • smitty

    There was much leadership in those days.

    Sorry, I don’t compromise with Virginians — never have, never will.

  • smitty

    I’m a born Oregonian, anyway. Now, the WYB might take you to task. Give him time.

    Hank Johnson won re-election with over 70% of the vote AFTER his famous “Guam might tip over” fiasco.

    Never under estimate the stupidity of the average voter.

    Pardon my utter impatience with these old tools but good night, what an ALPHA HOTEL this old fart is. He needs to accept the gold watch already and get out!

    ‘Moran’, more like  ‘Moron’.

    I like to think of him as Ted Kennedy Lite.

    Too…many…jokes. Brain…’sploding…
