Harken, Harkin

Reader comment on item: A French lesson for Tom Harkin

Submitted by no dhi (United States), Dec 14, 2005 at 13:18

Well, I haven't lived in Iowa since I was a little girl, but I do remember everyone getting along really well. I grew-up Irish Catholic in an area of Des Moines that had a large Jewish population (for Des Moines in the 1970's) and we all were pretty happy. Or, at least I thought so. People outside of Iowa like to tell me how unhappy we all were.

It is difficult for people who are not from Iowa to understand Iowans. However, it is more difficult for Iowans to understand how horrible and evil the world can be. I feel that the only way for Harkin to realize what evil really lurks in the world, and possibly in Iowa as well is to send his kids for grandchildren to one of these Muslim/Arabic culture camps so that he can see what kind of indoctrination may be going on right below his nose. Nothing other than watching his own kids directly influenced by these groups will wake him up.

Also, I think that Sen Grassley is awesome, and people should listen to him about Iowa.That is, if anyone is interested.
