SOME GOOD POINTS HERE

NOTHING new to any of us but kind of interesting and I thought I’d send this, which I got in email, along:

This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something contrary to my belief has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life— so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can’t justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!

We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.

Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans.

Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it’s a violation of THEIR rights.

People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves

If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you’d better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

$5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for “free” health care is not.

If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

And, pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us “racists”?!

Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China.

We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good, where killing murderers is wrong, but killing innocent babies is right.

Wake up America, the great unsinkable ship, Titanic America, has hit an iceberg, is taking on water, and is sinking fast.

    The question I’d like Pelosi et al. to fully explain to me is how the country is now SO-O-O much better off now that Trump is humiliated and banished from social media while a career loser and melanin-rich hypocrite replace him . . . . . . .

    And I STILL don’t fully understand exactly what “crime” DJT committed and would be subject to trial in the Senate for . . . except the crime of annoying MaligNancy, of course.

    Amongst the other aphorisms and exemplas my grandfather distilled while raising 8 kids before I came along was this one:

    If one day you find yourself doing things which seem to be turning you into somebody you wouldn’t want to sit down and have dinner with, stop doing whatever it is and start doing something else.

    BOCOPRO….you say “The question I’d like Pelosi et al. to fully explain to me is how the country is now SO-O-O much better off now…. ” that Trump’s humiliated…etc.
    Great question….answer: IT IS NOT.
    The next question would be “Do you not SEE how much better this country is since Trump too charge?”
    Your grandpa’s comment brought tears to my eyes….firstly because I LOVE people with that kind of wisdom and the way of putting it, and secondly, I feel like we MUST FIGHT no matter how it hurts us.
    YET, so many friends are SO upset by the hate toward conservatives they see on TV news all day/night, I keep advising them to think of their faith, or some happy memory, or a great big ice cream sundae when they feel the fear welling up…counteract it with something joyful. I’m trying to do that….

    AOW is right, this is NOT great for our health………..but I AM SO HOPING she’s teasing about walking away from her excellent blog!

    AOW…So worried about Mr. AOW…and now, you……….I hope that pulling back (maybe letting SIlverfiddle and Mustang write more for you, not really closing down, per se?) helps….The Bible Study group I lead just talked about this…watching News, letting ourselves get SO caught up, is SO awful. Most are conservatives, but one of my faves today mentioned how she keeps up with her New York Times Update page every morning, so I know SHE’S lost. And I love her. Good thing we’ve never talked politics 🙂

    KID, it really HAS confessed, hasn’t it….
    I remember my very dear, smart Bro-in-law who’d been conservative suddenly voted for Biden (I think) because he’d read plenty on how TRUMP IS DESTROYING DEMOCRACY.
    Then we see what the LEFT is doing?

    BY THE WAY, can someone tell me why so many Lefties yesterday on the Floor said what happened is RACIST? How all those people are WHITE SUPREMACISTS?

    What we MUST remember and hopefully point out in OUR media is that those lies get HEARD and BELIEVED…surely everyone knows it had nothing to do with Race (Biden’s WHITE, lefties!) and so they MUST just know people are hearing and believing them :-()

    Human beings resist change. The older they get, the more resistant to change they become. Think back forty or fifty years ago and recall how our parents and grandparents looked at us and shook their heads. We hate rap today as much as they hated rock and roll and heavy metal. Some things change in small amounts, so that we don’t notice. Intolerance for sexual preference is an example of this —queers vs. transexuals. I sense a lot of anger in the post, whoever wrote it. You know, if it’s one thing we don’t need more of, it’s anger. Anger management suggestions: if watching CNN or some other type program makes you angry, don’t watch it. Stop dwelling on the things that make you irritated —get a life away from whatever pulls your trigger. We all have a shelf life. Stop wasting it on things you can’t change, no matter how much you disagree with “what’s going on.” Stop pretending that you matter. In a nation of 330-million people, none of us matters —except to those whom we love. We could start with that and find a new day.

    MUSTANG, to name a few on the list, “Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.” or ” People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President.”, they’re both exactly right…so what’s really important is that people see the ironic hypocrisy in our society and maybe, just maybe, ‘get it’ finally.
    That’s why I posted this; I don’t look at it as any angrier than anyone I know about what’s going on today….It’s certainly not happy stuff but SO SO many don’t understand these types of phrases and, when they do, and I see a lightbulb go off, it’s worth it to me.
    While this is certainly not an uplifting list, I see it less as angry and more as common sense…Also, we’re way past “Gee, we hate rap, they hated rock”…not when 12 yr olds are giving oral sex in the elementary school bathroom. …just as one example. We’ve come a bit far for “Oh, well! These are new times…get with it!”

    The Bible Study I lead and I talked today about how to counteract the negativity we’re seeing on TV so we do NOT become so angry it hurts our health…….it was a good discussion and important.

    KID, one of my favorites at bible study is a Chinese woman ..I mentioned above that one reads the NY Times updates…it’s my Chinese friend…who tells us the English they learn as children is phrases like COMMUNISM IS THE WAY. Seriously.

    We’ve come a bit far for “Oh, well! These are new times…get with it!”

    Fact: the voting demographic has changed in this country. Why is that? Because the times, they are a changing and apparently at least half of us are out of step with the new America. Does it matter? It mattered a little over a month ago. It mattered in 2017 when our GOP leaders joined with Democrats as “Never Trumpers.” It mattered in 2017 when no one began to develop a battle plan for Election 2020. And, bless your heart, you saw this coming and predicted it when all your conservative friends told you they couldn’t vote for Trump. You were right; they were right. Trump won’t be president in another eight days. We had 75-million people who showed up to vote for Trump; we needed 80-million. Should work out okay, though — unless in four more years we have no more rights as citizens; then, maybe no so much.

    Clinton-Bush-Obama-Biden (who didn’t elect themselves) are why 12-year olds are having oral sex with each other. It’s very bad in our country — absolutely true. But if anger is all we have, then our army will continue to be leaderless and we’ll continue stumbling around in the dark. But you know what? I’m part of the problem. I have no idea how to fix this. I still blog, as you know, but not about politics. Why is that? Because I know if ten people read my political commentary, maybe one will give what I had to say any thought. It’s like banging your head against a rock. After a while, you either learn to enjoy the pain, or you knock yourself out. I’ve been unconscious now for a few years.

    if Mustangs post sounds negative, it’s because sometimes the truth hurts. A couple of our friends from here just left for Panama to consider moving there. (The husband had said he would consider moving there if Trump lost). I dunno, folks. That sounds pretty drastic, but who knows?
    He is in his mid 60’s, just retiring, while she is 76 and takes care of a sister with polio, plus their 96 year old mother. They also own a dozen homes & condos here so it wouldn’t be an easy move if they do so we’ll see.

    Ya, we can be angry or we can just hope for the best, which I do, and keep blogging politics, which I hope to do. I get no comments from most of my non political stuff I post and I LIKE the comments the most of anything about blogging. I was, however, considering writing a couple NON political posts soon and probably will..I think they’re universally appealing subjects to most of us. I hope so!!!

    Yeah, Mustang, there is a lot of anger at having our country pulled out from underneath our feet. This has been going on for a long time, but the swamp rats’ reaction to Donald J. thank-god-he’s-still-president-today Trump has concentrated focus on the betrayal. Every time he has moved to rectify their damage they screech so loudly the dead can hear them. The stereophonic amplification of the media makes it deafening. It’s almost all we see at every turn, “authoritarianism masquerading as righteousness” as AOW posted on her blog today.

    And Z, I wonder how much those companies have been contributing to GOP candidates, and how much of that is virtue signaling. Truly, I don’t know, have suspicions, but would like to know some truth.

    We had a very interesting time in our bible study today. It was one of those moments when I had to step in and correct a seriously wrong tenet. Hopefully, with grace. But I need to call her afterward and review.

    Punishing us, don’t you know!? That’s what makes this humorous; We conservatives are REALLY being PUNISHED by the LEFT for all we’ve done the last 4 years, like making it safer for immigrants, growing an incredible economy, getting us out of expensive int’l groups which did zip for US, making N Korea shut up (it’s only since Un knows Trump’s out that he’s saying he hates us and will bomb us if we don’t lift sanctions…nobody seems to notice that), bringing corporations baCk so people get hired, getting a vaccine in record time, helping Black colleges get better loan structure, stopping MS-13, killing ISIS, etc etc………….

    I saw it in my high schoolers.

    Not sure BUSH had much to do with it, but I suppose Bill Clinton’s situation easEd the way into discussing things which were better left undiscussed in public.

    Now we have feminine menstrual pads whose ads say “WHAT the GUSH?” and showing red spots on pads (which, after last time I mentioned that, suddenly disappeared from the ads so I wasn’t the only one to find that hideous)…We have girls dancing through the public square because they found a new birth control, nobody needs to marry to have children OR have sex anymore and every bit of our kids’ culture tells them that’s so……….The Bachelor, Reality shows which show HUGE 9 month pregnant bellies (as if ANYBODY wants to SEE that?), and some shows which apparently lionize TEEN AGE MOMS….(no daddy, of course,) etc etc etc.
