Last month we published tweets from my first thirty days on Twitter. This month, we publish a sampling of my best tweets ever, gleaned from the three years I tweeted regularly. A lot of thought went into each tweet when it was composed, and more thought has gone into selecting the “finalists” which made it into this new collection. We hope you find them entertaining and thought provoking.
I’ve come to regret tweeting some of my original tweets, which, in retrospect, seemed to me too emotional and extreme. My son once told me my tweets were dumb. After reviewing all of them, it’s clear he was right about at least some of them. I no longer tweet regularly on Twitter.
Anyway, get ready for a controversial ride. These tweets are hot. If you disagree or have doubts, or if you’re simply curious, click on the many embedded links to learn more.
Note: links have been added to some of the original tweets to provide readers with background and context. A few tweets have been edited for clarity.

Employers threatening to shut-down if Obama re-elected reminds me of threats to close shop if Civil Rights Act passed in 1964.

How can anyone say USA is free when 400 families have sequestered 1/8 of our national treasure? Our country is a plantation.
Obama, a born-again Christian, must feel like Jesus himself as Christian leaders desert him for Mormon Romney, a compulsive liar.

GOP named Right to Work law to hide its intent to weaken/wreck unions and drive down wages and benefits.

If Right to Work is so great, why did the GOP exempt police and fire unions? GOP is not interested in fair play, apparently.
The way to balance our budget is to spend more money on the poor, elderly and disabled. It’s counter-intuitive but always works.

GOP deficits are always the result of looting. Think of all the money wealthy families stole from the USA during Bush years.
Since the Reagan era the wealthy have had no limits on what they can make and keep. It’s why they loot.
Unless limits are placed on personal incomes and estate size, capitalism always devolves into a kind of feudalism.
GOP advertisers are flooding Michigan with this message: Protect collective bargaining. Support Freedom to Work. Right out of Orwell’s 1984.
Amazing how Michigan GOP sprung Right to Work on us at the very moment a mega-million dollar ad campaign for its passage appeared.
It’s already impossible to start a Union in Michigan. Right to Work will enable business owners to kill off the few that still exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch
Surprise attack on Unions by Rick Snyder and GOP was well-planned and executed. Felony charges against protestors is the frosting on their cake.
