I am pissed, Patriots. Not pissed at the Left. Oh no! I'm pissed off at the Right!
Yeah, yeah, I know. Somebody's gotta do it. Somebody's gotta refute Critical Race Theory.
Somebody's gotta refute The Big Election Lie.
Somebody's gotta point out that the "vax"...isn't.
Somebody's gotta point out that the geezer in the WH isn't actually Joe Biden. (Oh wait, that was me.)
Conservatives do it so well too. So logically. With well-researched facts they reach Liberal hearts, one by one.
It works too. Gotta give 'em that. And if you don't believe that, I have one hashtag for you: #Blexit.
But the whole time I'm thinking, "Really!?! Is anyone anywhere actually stupid enough to believe this Lefty shit!?!"
By seriously refuting it with solemnity, isn't the Right subtly lending credence to their insanity!?!
I know, I know. It's gotta be done. But I keep thinking of the old adage, "Never reason with crazy."
Been there. Done that. Cost me a bundle in attorney's fees so perhaps I'm a little jaded.
On the rare occasions I got to watch TV growing up, I always begged for a few extra minutes after Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood ended. The show that followed as always PBS's Film du Jour and the film of the day was always Life with Father starring William Powell.
I loved it when William Powell exploded, "Why did God make so many dumb fools and Democrats?!". That was my first clue that politics is damned funny!
Kamala Harris in Debate: Her Condescension to (Apparently) Stupid America and VP Pence Knows No Bounds
I approached the Vice Presidential debate this evening with one question: "What is Kamala Harris like?" I'd conveniently missed the primary debates so my impression of the woman was basically unformed.
Unformed but not unbiased. No one is unbiased as the tenor of moderator Susan Page's questions clearly showed.
I've heard the usual tittle-tattle about Kamala's personal life, but being a MAGA Conservative, I'm focused on the issues, not personalities. I already know what Kamala stands for, or rather doesn't stand for, Protection of the unborn coming to mind.
Still, being an inveterate people watcher, I wanted to know how Kamala would come off during the Vice Presidential debate against one of the most active, visible and loudly Christian Vice Presidents in recent memory. I know Donald Trump ain't no gentleman, thank God, because he took names and kicked Joe's ass in the last debate.
How would Kamala relate to Mike Pence?
Joe Biden Was Right (Just This Once!): This IS A Battle for the Soul of America
As my husband and I watched the National Day of Prayer and Repentance, the moment came where Franklin Graham asked the congregation on the National Mall to pray. After a hushed moment, the sound of 50,000 voices raised in prayer swelled in a great din of supplication. Glancing over at Michael, I noticed that he was covered with goosebumps...and he doesn't goosebump easily.
As tears flowed down my cheeks, I had goosebumps on my goosebumps.
Thank God for a nation that prays in the name of Jesus, Amen.
This would be a great time in the world
for some man to come along that knew something.
Now that's funny, I don't care who ya are. Republican, Democrat, Independent...Americans just want someone in the White House who knows something. In the days leading up to Election Day, let's not forget to laugh together. It's the shortest distance between people and Heaven knows this nation needs to come together again.
Will Rogers knew that. Born in 1879 in Cherokee Nation, Wikipedia describes Rogers as an "American stage and film actor, vaudeville performer, cowboy, humorist, newspaper columnist, and social commentator." Not bad for a High School drop-out.
His genius was making us laugh at ourselves about topics we Americans took much too seriously in the 1930s and still do today. Topics like politics and government. Rogers' quips are as accurate today as they were back then, proving that nothing much ever changes.
Remember, write to your Congressman.
Even if he can’t read, write to him.
Will didn't try to be funny, per se. He just observed America and then reflected ourselves back at us. As he liked to say, "All I know is just what I read in the papers."
For you young whippersnappers, that's several large sheets of printed paper, folded together, that crackles authoritatively when you shake it over your morning coffee. Try that with a Kindle!
Why don’t they pass a Constitutional Amendment
prohibiting anybody from learning anything?
If it works as good as Prohibition did,
in five years we will have the smartest people on earth.
Or just teach Common Core via Zoom. That'll make kids thirst for knowledge...if they aren't arrested for trying to learn like Maverick Stow.
