R.I.P. Margaret Thatcher

I am saddened at the recent passing of who I consider to be one of the icons of twentieth century history. Of course I mean the great Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher. Indeed, one of her greatest quotes is the headliner of this very Blog..."The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other people's money." How true and this will become ever clearer with every tick of the clock as we slough toward our brave new utopian welfare state.

To recall, when she took over in 1980, things were so terrible in the UK that they could not even bury the dead. That is correct. Look it up. The government grave diggers union was on strike and the bodies where being stacked like cord wood. Maggie came in with Ronald Reagan and gave us a decade of economic rebirth that I am afraid will be reflected upon as the best of times.

To think that now in the UK they are having difficulty with her legacy and vilifying her as some terrible monster tells you all you need to know about modern Britain. As Johnnie Rotten and the Sex Pistols proclaimed "No future for you, and England's dreaming." The protests going on now are pathetic and sickening and deserving of your pity. The people who are now trying to debase her and her legacy are a bunch of wretched, filthy, dirty wankers.
