The way lefties think and why most of them should not be in charge of children

Lakshmi and Rama, my neighborhood liquor store owners have a beautiful, gentle daughter. Their daughter is now attending a college of medicine in Poland. Their daughter is a talented pianist and a straight A student.

Lakshmi and Rama have worked at liquor stores, gas stations and check cashing businesses. Sacrificing any semblance of a normal life to raise and educate their daughter, Rama was shot while working at a check cashing business and he lost his right eye as a result.

They work 14 to 20 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are like the cartoon character Apu, the Quicky Mart owner in the Simpson's show. In one episode Apu stands up at a town meeting and says, "I have been shot 5 times and as a consequence I almost missed work, once."

They have been robbed twice in their current location and Lakshmi told me that she does not let her daughter hang out in the store any more because she is afraid that they will be robbed again and her daughter will be harmed. In her early years, the daughter stocked supplies.

They sent their daughter to a strict Catholic school. Sometimes money got tight, but their daughter told them that public school here was not an option. She worked her butt off in a school that had high academic standards. Last year whilst attending college in Pennsylvania, she was disappointed to find the course work involved using textbooks and materials she had already studied in high school.

During her final year of high school, she won a $1,000 scholarship from a scholarship funded by President Bush. During the ceremony given to the winners of the high school scholarships the principals of the public high schools and the catholic high schools attended. One of the principals recognized Lakshmi and Rama from the liquor store. He walked up to their daughter and said, "I know you. You don't deserve this scholarship, because your parents own a liquor store."

Lakshmi said her daughter was furious. "I do deserve it. I worked hard for this scholarship," she replied.

AA principal.

Once you understand that liberals are engaged in a no holds barred war on decency everything becomes clear.

dear Ms C, your story is readable, but you would name a Leftist everyone who does something wrong. The monkey who throws down a cononut on the head of Livingstone, in your title would be called The Leftist Monkey

I do blame you lefties for every mother effing thing that is wrong with this world.

No good deed goes upunished, and so it seems the same can now be said for working your ass off at school, especially "IF" you just happen to be the "WRONG KIND" of minority, and your parents work their asses off as well, not to mention "OWNING" their own business. Wow! If I had known that just owning 1(one) Liquor Store put you in the upper crust category of the rich, and undeserving, I'd be out there slingin' hooch!
I am very impressed that their daughter was brought up so well, that she was able to defend herself verbally, and intelligently. If she had been Africa-American, or Mexican, there probably would have been at least a fist fight, and a major lawsuit against that principal, and the school.
What happened to the times where your hard work, and achievement of a goal were congratulated, and rewarded? When did we lose this? Why do they (yes the lefties) love, and reward self induced loser-dom?

Virtue, like civility, is sometimes its own reward. That principal will never live down his inability to produce, or be, a Lakshmi's daughter.
