Did the Good Ol' Days Ever Exist??? The Ebb and Flow of Goodness vs Evil in America
I've said it before and I'll say it again: "History is awesome until you have to live it. Then it really, really sucks."
Our intense frustration over Fake Biden's theft of the Presidency, and the havoc it's wreaked on all of our lives and finances, makes it tempting to long for the Good Ol' Days when life was simpler, God was revered and people were moral.
Some fascinating, eccentric people find so much comfort in their impression of the Good Ol' Days that they recreate the 1940s or 1950s in every facet of their lives. Like historical re-enactors, they're "authentic to the skin," including girdles...yet they all have Instagram and YouTube channels!
I get it! Living in the past eliminates the strong emotions inspired by Evil current events. Even the worst events of the 1940s can't inspire the intensity and immediacy of the pain inspired by all the Evil in our modern world. Living in the past is a buffer against pain.
As much as I admire and envy the beautiful women living Vintage Lives in gorgeous vintage fashion, I can't help wondering if the Good Ol' Days were really as good and honest as we imagine, especially politically.
I also wonder if our current Evil is permanent or if it's possible for America to return to the goodness of the Good Ol' Days.
Once upon a time, well actually it was last night, Michael said something to the effect, "You've worked hard enough this week. Let's go to the American Legion for supper. I hear they're serving walleye."
They could've been serving shit-on-a-shingle and I'd be there with bells on! Any meal I don't have to cook is my favorite meal. (Can I get an "Amen," Ladies!?)
Now, when you enter an American Legion, you kinda assume that everone there is...duh! Pro-military, Pro-veterans, Pro-America. There are American flags e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e and not one damn mask in sight.
It's one of the places Michael can roll into proudly wearing his new T-shirt and no one's going to be offended. It says, "ALL LIVES MATTER...Except terrorists, rapists, child molesters, cop killers & anyone who hates America. Fuck those guys." (He wore it the county fair the other week and you should've seen the constipated expression on the guy who was wearing a "BLM" t-shirt. Priceless!!! If he'd tried anything he would've had the shock of his life: the guy in the wheelchair knows taekwondo! LOL)
Anyways, the American Legion was the last place I expected to meet a Trump hater yet it happened.
To be honest, I've been watching a little too much Jeff Dunham recently so when the guy said, "I hate Trump" my first thought was Walter's famous line, "300 million sperm. That's the one that got through."
That ain't right! Don't laugh at that!
Despite disagreeing passionately about politics, our conversation with "Tom" was cordial and I got the opportunity to study a man who obviously loved America...and hated Trump. A man who supported our veterans (or at least really liked walleye)...and hated Trump. A man who was interested in American history...and hated Trump.
He never gave a cogent reason either. Just kept repeating, "I hate the man."
