What Albert Camus Would Say Of Paul Ryan

Posted: April 9, 2014

I could not resist applying the import of your cryptoquote of April 4, which came from Albert Camus, to today’s GOP:  “Real nobility is based on scorn, courage and profound indifference.”

They support the very rich “nobles” through virtually total and, in their mind, courageous disdain for the rest of us.  For example, 69 percent of the proposed Ryan budget cuts target the neediest among us, while providing huge benefits to “Big Oil” and the wealthy.

The obvious message? Kiss the ring!
