We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Where's my hug-puppy and safe space and coloring book?
The Reflexive Liberal
I'm sorry to inform you that your puppy was run over by a car with a Hillary sticker, your safe space is the closet under the stairs, and your coloring book was chewed up by your puppy before its untimely demise. Also, there is no Santa Claus. Yeah, I'm bummed too..
This is funny of course but make no mistake the Democrats are good at what they do and they intend to win. Trump was an anomaly and if you listen to the typical Republican politician today they learned nothing from Trump's big win. After Trump the Republicans will continue to put up unexciting Rinos. The Democrats work together to win, yes they lost the presidency this time but this will just make them double down. They will win and they will literally take over the country and throw out the constitution.
New York City voted 84% for Hillary! Think about that. Hillary was a crook, everyone knows she is a crook, everyone knows she did nothing in her entire career. But none of this matters. All that matters is she is Democrat and Democrats give them free stuff. California and a couple dozen very large welfare dominated cities will pick the next 5 or 6 presidents (if we last that long).
I wish everyone luck, I especially wish those who are young luck and hope they pay attention as the country moves left and destroys itself. I say pay attention because as this all goes South we will need more than luck. It's a tossup what will happen: a economic collapse worse than the great depression, a era of civil unrest (when the free stuff runs out) where every large city devolves into riots and violence, WW III when the Democrats finally weaken our military so much that China or Russia thinks we are push overs. Good luck it's been great. We had a long run, 240 years of a constitutional Republic. It was good...
I love the links on this blog, and it's where I start my day every day. But comments like this one really really drive home the age of the bloggers and the degree to which you are out of touch with the modern left. It's like you are from a different planet.
The days when the difference between Republicans and Democrats is a few points on the top marginal tax rate are long gone. The modern left are Marxists and seek nothing less than complete control of society. They took your health care. If Hillary had won they would have taken your 401k next.
Schlicter went way too easy on them. Jim Goad puts them in their rightful place.
