  • Jack Kemp remembered well

    Great for US. He’d have been a better quarterback for our country than #42.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    However recently when I read about a major conservative figure passing away I cant help but think, well at least he gets to watch the craziness from paradise.

    I am young enough that for the most part I learned about him from history rather than following him in real life but I still have immense respect for him.

    I heard him speak at Dorchester 1980.

    A great story he then told…

    “My little girl was talking to her grade school friend, who said to her: “I heard your dad is a football player.” She retorted: “He isn’t a football player, he is a Quarterback!”

    Jack was a great football player, a great quarterback, and a great civic leader. If he was on the top of the 1996 ticket, he would have made a great President, and nobody would have ever heard Monica.

    Check out this stupid condescending article about Jack Kemp from Blue Oregon

    http://www.blueoregon.com/2009/05/jack-kemp-the-last-great-conservative.html

    It seems they are authorities on everything. They remember Jack Kemp, but then remind us that he supported Reagan trickle down economics.all the while supporting Marxist Obama government.

    They are so stupid!
