RIP: Maggie Thatcher

Today marks the passing of a giant in the world of leadership.  M. Thatcher died today at the age of 87.  She, and the recently deceased hero of the left, Mr. Chavez represent opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to freedom and dignity and the approval of the Press and Liberal Left.  She was first and foremost a staunch advocate of freedom and dignity unlike Mr. Chavez.  At the same time she was unlike him when it came to the approval of the Press and Liberal Left.  They adored Mr. Chavez and despised Maggie.

Why?  Maybe it was that Maggie’s Way turned out so much better than their way and that she had no problem pointing that out.  Maggie called it as she saw it.

 “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

 “If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.”

 “No one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had money as well.”

 “If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim.”

 You can bet Sean Penn and his Hollywood buddies won’t be at the funeral.  Neither will the liberal feminists.  But they could take lessons from her on what it means to be a woman.  She did it her way with the boys and did it with class, dignity and great effect.  “I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end,” she once remarked.

In the final analysis Mr. Chavez leaves the world a better place because he is gone, Maggie because she was here.

 RIP Maggie.  Say hello to Winston when he greets you at Heaven’s Gate.
