I Am So Shook

Whatever happened to all the Trump protesters? Whatever happened to Jennifer Lawrence's open letters to the public to be more inspired by Rage? What happened to Fake News? Reality has finally set in and it's the Zoloft/Abilify phase for liberals, the PTSD of Hillary losing. Now in a logical universe Trump becoming president of the United States would be like if the late Benny Hill had at one time become the PM of Great Britain. Wouldn't happen, not likely to happen and really can't happen all things considered. Trump has gone on the record as saying that the use of nuclear weapons would be a good strategy in the war against ISIS but on the plus side he and Pence have accepted the official report on the Russian hacking. I got the heebie-jeebies too that vague weird anxiety ever since the Election but liberals are so shaken to the very core of their being that even in dreams they're working out their tweets and blogs and anti-Trump posts for the next day now that Ole Man Winter has set in and it's cold as a witch's tit outside so all the placards and posters have been safely stashed away gathering dust and spiderwebs ready for the first hint of spring. We'll see what happens but I hope they make it. Hang in there!

Liberal fantastical thinking

There is a vague but growing movement afoot built around the equally vague idea that somehow Trump can be impeached or thrown out even before he takes office on Jan. the 20th.  I'm unclear as to the grounds of this liberal ice-cream castle built in the air and feathered canyons everywhere to borrow from an old Judy Collins song.  Does Destiny care that much that Hillary Clinton lost?

Our country's basic economic problem in a nutshell

The price of goods and services is a runaway train while your wages stay roughly the same over the course of a lifetime. Sure there are minor raises here and there ("you're doing a fantastic job") and you can always try for that promotion down the road but generally speaking you're stuck in a rut caused by forces beyond your control although libertarians will probably disagree with this. When I was a wee lad the price of a brand new car cost maybe $7,000-$8,000 and a new house in my folks' day was just to pluck a number out of hat maybe $35,000-$40,000. Now that new Honda will cost you 22 GRAND and that house you wanna make a home in will be around $200,000 say and we're not talking mansion, Diddy digs. Of course the average rent for an average apartment these days is $1,200 and counting and that ain't nothin' fancy. Now it's not like your boss is gonna do the logical thing in your view and pay you $50/hour so you can buy that new car and house so the system seems kind of hard-rigged against your advancement in life. This is not a liberal post just an objective look at a basic problem.

What the CIA couldn't do old age did

Socialists are in mourning today. Former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro dead at the ripe old age of 90. In this fast-paced and ever-changing world we're definitely talking a retro channel in History here, pre-Internet dictator, blast from the past cigar-chomping revolutionary. I had to laugh at an Onion parody once where they had "Candid Camera" host Allen Funt calling up John F. Kennedy saying the Cuban Missile Crisis was all a hoax and the photo of JFK all relieved. Castro outlasted the power of what 10 U.S. presidents? Political tortoise crawling through the ages, a perennial figure in the pages of the past all yellowed and tattered. I know Michael Moore has said the Cuban healthcare system is the best in the world. I guess you don't get a bill in the mail for colonic polyp lab analysis, dunno. All those Hollywood celebs who hate Trump here's a great place to shuffle on over;)

So why is Hollywood so almost monolithically liberal?

The Hollywood mass trauma over Donald Trump's victory continues, the mass hemorrhaging.  I'm not mad about this but it is curious.  Of course they are entitled to their pov but why is it always the same?  Actress Jennifer Lawrence recently penned a major essay saying we should all feel enraged and other hyperventilations.  I disagree alot with many of Rush's theories and opinings, haven't listened to him in years but the only thing I can come up with is as he once said.  Modern-day actors and actresses are so incredibly wealthy that deep down they actually feel guilty about it:)

Protesting Trump

So here's the difference between them and us (I realize I'm not supposed to use such dichotomous language, no microaggression intended). If Hillary had won we would not have taken to the streets. We're too busy watching old All in the Family reruns at night, maybe a little PBS action and then a shot of whatever and then it's off to bed. Worst-case scenario lots of us might even publish hate-filled and vituperative anti-Hillary blogposts every third day for the duration of her term (imagine that). Sure the liberals would get on our case but we're too law-and-orderish to cause major mayhem in our nation's metropolises. On my way to work this morning heard of some major anti-Trump protests/social disruptions in at least seven major cities from LA to Chicago, Boston and Manhattan and places in between and what are they protesting exactly? His stance to get tough on illegal immigration? His early on words about the general character of Mexican illegals coming into this country? Observations about radical Islam and the threat it poses and the need to heavily vet refugees? His purported groping of women, his potty mouth and his past feud with Rosie? or (all of the above)? Remember when Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was shot by some lone nut the Left lectured the Right to rein in the rhetoric lest it lead to violence and they did this whenever some tragedy happened in the news that could even be vaporously associated with the Right. Rush Limbaugh causing all the problems. Are they now lecturing their own Left, these large groups of anti-Trump protesters to watch the hate-filled rhetoric lest something happen to Trump? Let's put it squarely here Mr. Trump is every secret service's worst nightmare. He's hated by millions and the people who hate him really hate him. Gerald Ford or Jimmy Carter never inspired this passion. Even the Bush Jr. protests were peaceful and restrained by comparison. I'm waiting for the Left to call for civility, to dial down the vitriol, to disassociate from the fringe......(crickets)......
