>Where Are All The Leaders?


This is a conservative blog, but the following from Iacocca is too good to pass up. It also accurately reflects the mood of this blog, which is not called Anger Blog for nothing. And let’s be honest, to more than a handful people the blog reflects the mood of the country.

Subject: Where Are All The Leaders?

Lee Iacocca Says:

“I’ll go a step further. You can’t call yourself a
patriot if you’re not outraged. This is a fight I’m
ready and willing to have.”
