      And we were raised by Republicans, but all the rest of us grew up to be Democrats.  Once his daughter, who was a Republican, lamented that she and her father were the only Republicans and what happened to us???  Now she's a Democrat (much to her mother's delight - and mine, because I exerted as much influence on her as possible).
      Her dad, my brother, is dismayed.

        outright racist or even realize that his sense of not being part of that 47% stems from racist origins.  Because those 47% were "takers" and "lazy" and he isn't and I am sure that in his mind the vast vast number of the 47% come with a naturally darker hue - you know the known lazy people like Mexicans and blacks.

        I am a former member of the lazy but we lost the lazy when we lost our brogue - now we are just drunks.
