From a Facebook friend, a reminder that there are people who live lives of quiet desperation for whom even the smallest act of kindness can be immensely important.
There, but for extreme luck, go I…
This story, or your bring the focus of this story to your readers, seems to be showing me a metamorphosis on your “position”.
I read the other day that you blog about politics because you like politics… Clearly, I understand that, and the fascination.
When you start to look closer, and look past the jingoism, you start to see glimmers of truth. What the core beliefs are.
In the several years that I have been following this blog, I have seen you change, Doug.
Or maybe… just the folks with which you used to identify have drifted away from your views. I think we can agree that what was at first an imperceptible drift now has a visible accelerating pace.
Welcome to the other side.
I’m not sure what the connection between this story and Doug’s politics is.
I admit I merely followed Doug to OTB from his own personal blog, “Below the Beltway”. And I miss the old Doug, who was a leetle bit more direct than he is now, with a larger audience and co-editors. Aw, hell, he used to call people assholes when they deserved it.
Doug, thanks for bringing this to our attention. It’s too easy to get wrapped up in one’s own “problems” and forget people are out there truly suffering.
I thought the libertarian mindset here is that the woman needs to pull up her boot straps and fix her life. Why would you a libertarian spend time caring about the lack of available help for this woman? It’s not like you care about the people dying from lack of health care and such…
