Another Collection of Links

This first piece is a lefty whine-fest about not doing enough to take care of the poor: Why won't Americans sacrifice a little for a just society? Well, I don't know. Let's ask the darlings of the left, those sexy socialists of the Champs Elysee, the French?! Oh, given their recent riots, maybe not.

Tying right in, a prominent leftie is tired of living in the bluest of the blue areas of the country, the Bay Area of Northern California. Why? It's too expensive! Go read about the tears being shed for him.

And RealClearPolitics.com gets two links today. The first discusses how 2005 ranks in terms of bad years for Presidents. The second is about the NY transit workers' strike, and the bankruptcy (both moral and financial) of their union. Did you know that the average transit worker in New York makes more money than I do? Granted, New York City is an expensive place to live, but how many of them live in the city anyway? How many of them have college degrees? How many of them do something besides drive around in circles all day? Hmmmm.

I've got plenty of original posts in the pipeline, for those of you who come here to read my, shall we say, unique take on things. But with the son at mom's now and dad's having several dozen quizzes to grade, now isn't the time for writing my own. Enjoy the remainder of your Christmas day!

And thank you for coming here to RightOnTheLeftCoast. I appreciate your visits.

Just be sure to norm the scores of the poor kids on those papers.
I wish I had learned about norming up and down years ago, it might have been helpful.

Remember, you don't have to do something they work at every day...justify their jobs and try and insure modernization (i.e. computer operated trains, like they have Europe) doesn't take their jobs!
